Thousands from across country protest in support of Palestinians near White House
Washington Post ^ | Aug 2 , 2014 | Karen Chen

Posted on 08/04/2014 10:38:11 AM PDT by LeoWindhorse

A demonstration drew thousands to the White House and the streets of downtown Washington on Saturday afternoon as participants from across the country called for an end to the continued violence between Israel and Palestinians in the Gaza Strip.

“Free, free Palestine, killing children is a crime,” the crowd chanted, several holding Palestinian flags, cardboard boxes decorated as coffins and posters with graphic images of the wounded.

“killing children is a crime”

Putting your weapons under your children is a crime.

Last week, in Minneapolis, about 40 people were standing on a corner of a busy highway and a mall entrance. They were waving Palestine Flags. I guess they thought protesting in BUM-F*CK MN would make a drastic world wide change. Anyhow, the thing that bothered me the most were the little children standing right on the shoulder of the highway. The mothers seemed to have no concern for their children’t safety.

The main reason they accumulate around the current White House because King Obama supports Hamas and all Palestinians. King Obama is a communists black Muslim traitor and their hero.

The priest at Mass at my church in DC said there will be a prayer vigil in front of the White House next Saturday AM, to ask the government to speak out on behalf of CHRISTIANS persecuted in Mosul and elsewhere.

If they really want to make an impression and demonstrate their allegiance with ‘Palestine’, they'll get more bang for their buck if they self-decapitate.

You ARE a racist.

Just because Hussein has dark skin, and has a back story of being Kenyan, and is married to a black tranny, and bought a couple of black kids, you assume he's black!


He's not black! He's Indonesian.

And which “Palestinians” are they supporting?

Palestinian Christians? Palestinian Muslims? Palestinian Jews?

“Palestine” has never been a country, never been an ethnicity. It’s a *region* in the Middle east, that includes portions of several different countries.

I do believe things are getting very close to the time for things to be at the end..that said not even the angels in heaven will know when the lord is ready..

It is really a shame the way evil has taken over..One thing for sure the evil ones will not be with the people believing in GOD and knowing the truth about things going on today..

“The Jewish Voice for Peace” named in the article as one of the organizers is not some grass roots outfit. It is funded by George Soros.

“killing children is a crime”

Only if you hit them while defending yourself from an attacker.

It’s NOT a crime if you are the attacker and are using the children as human shields.

...funny how Leftists stand on their heads and tell the world that it is upside down

Remember folks that SOROS and the other dicks of Washington pay people to protest and this seems to be one of those pay days..other democrats pay fools also..You can ask some of these morons what they are protesting and more than likely they don’t know unless you happen to come across one of the organizer’s of the party..I get really upset about things like this and then start thinking what it probably is and that is some old fart like Soros or Obama paying..

Organizations that joined the protesters were granted more than $3.6 million from Soros’s Open Society Foundations. On Oct. 5 there was a “march in solidarity with #occupywallstreet” that listed seven such groups out of the 16 overall supporting the protest. Those seven organizations received $3,614,690 from Soros’ Open Society Foundations since the year 2000, with more than $2 million going to Common Cause Education Fund, part of Common Cause, and another $1.1 million to MoveOn.org.

Even the protesters admit the hypocrisy of having billionaire Soros and MoveOn.org “joining forces to voice their ‘support’ for an anti-Wall Street movement” and that it ‘should set alarm bells ringing.” Additional funding went to the Service Employees International Union (SEIU), Community Voices Heard, Coalition for the Homeless, Neighborhood Economic Development Advocacy Project (NEDAP), and 350.org.

It is illegal to provide material support to a designated terror group like Hamas. Doesn't have to be funding or providing materials. Can be training or advising terrorists. Acknowledging first amendment protections, I think some of protests come awfully close to the line.

There have been numerous pro-Israel demonstrations across the the country. There was one at the Hamas demonstration at the White House. It was brief, because as one would expect the terror supporters turned violent, and rather than confronting them, the Capital police evacuated the pro-Israel group. I guess violence n the name of terror groups exempts one from things like disturbing the peace or even assault. At least in front of the President's rental. Wonder how far terrorists can go legally.

Pro-Israel US Marine Attacked By Pro-Hamas Mob – Punched, Kicked, Spat On (at White House)

BREAKING: Israel Supporters Evacuated From Front of White House Under Police Protection

As long as the Marine is pro-Israel, this is OK.


The mob was screaming “Allahu Akbar!” during the attack. The spat on him, kicked him and punched him in the face
