Leaders of civil rights organizations spoke out Tuesday night after a reporter from a Portland TV station tweeted anti-Palestinian sentiments from a professional account while covering a protest.

Jenny Young, a reporter with KOIN, was at a rally at Peninsula Park in North Portland, and tweeted about a speaker who praised the BDS movement. BDS, which stands for Boycott, Divestment, Sanctions, is a Palestinian-led movement, which upholds the principle that Palestinians are entitled to the same rights as the rest of humanity.

Young described the speaker, who was not identified, as “openly anti-Zionist”, and the BDS movement as “an anti-Semitic movement that’s been admonished by U.S. lawmakers.”

According to the Palestinian BDS National Committee, the BDS movement fights against Israeli occupation of Palestinian land, and discrimination against Palestinian citizens and refugees.

He mis-spoke, apparently. Terrorist is the best way to describe the PLO.

Its interesting how openly avowedly terrorist murder gangs and their supporters/enablers like PLO/PA/Fatah, CAIR, Muslim Brotherhood, Al Quaida, Hamas, Hezballah, etc etc etc (ever notice how many many Muslim murder gangs there are!? that’s just a quick start on a list that goes over 200)

its interesting how often they try pretending that they’re instead just the sweet, innocent, freedom-loving peaceful little children next door.

the only part of that pretense is that they really ARE now next door to us, thanks to Bush/Obama importing so many of these Satanic Anti-American, anti-Christian basturds into USA

prepare self=defense now while you still can

"Civil rights organizations" quoted by far-left "journalist" Jayati Ramakrishnan = Palestinian BDS National Committee; Oregon chapter of the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR-Oregon); quotes Olivia Katbi Smith, co-chair of the Portland Democratic Socialists of America chapter and a board member of CAIR-Oregon, Seemab Hussaini, vice-chair of CAIR-Oregon; concludes with a plug: "two Black and Palestinian-led organizations, the Center for Study and Preservation of Palestine and the Hurriyyah Collective, planned to host a rally Wednesday at Terry Schrunk Plaza to protest Israeli annexation"
