WASHINGTON - Two police departments in the northeastern United States decided over the past week to cancel their participation in a program that involves visiting Israel and meeting Israeli police officers, due to public pressure by a coalition of progressive organisations, including a number of groups affiliated with the Boycott, Sanctions and Divestment movement (BDS).

The coalition that led to the cancellations in Vermont and Massachusetts is currently working to convince other police departments to back out of the program. On Friday, a letter addressing this issue was sent to the mayor of Boston, Marty Walsh, by a group of local activists from JVP and other organizations.
Given that the Boston Police Department is under your jurisdiction as Mayor of Boston, we ask that you too choose to cancel Bostons participation in the seminar, the activists wrote. Weve seen your office take firm positions, time after time, against the racist and bigoted policies of the Trump administration. The people you have pledged to protect are asking today that you continue to do so by saying no to police training with a military force that currently maintains a brutal military occupation.
Rome is burning . . . how is the view?
That’s short-sighted. A lot of the same people that want the destruction of Israel, also want the destruction of the police, rule of law, etc.
The Muslim Palestinians aren’t worth getting along with.
This truly surprises me given that it’s the police. Giving in to the boycott Isreal is a big mistake.
Interest how they worship (well some of them anyway) a Jewish carpenter and celebrate His birthday once a year but hate Israel who brought salvation to the world.
Gee, I guess it’s a good thing that “Free Occupied Tibet”, “Free Occupied Kurdistan”, “Free Occupied Northern Cyprus”, “Free Occupied Basque”, “Free Occupied Catalonia”, “Free the Occupied Falkland Islands” (er, I mean “Las Malvinas”), “England out of Ireland”, “England out of Scotland”, “England out of Wales”, “England out of Gibraltar”, “Free Occupied Québec”, “Free Occupied Aztlan” etc... etc... etc... are nowhere NEAR the cause-célèbre that “Occupied Palestine” is, or those poor Boston cops would’t be able to cooperate with ANYONE!
Of course, none of those other causes will EVER be as popular of a cause-célèbre as “Occupied Palestine”, because none of those others have the hatred of t3h j0000z at the root. :P
Police departments of major cities are generally directly answerable to the Mayor, so this is really no surprise.
It appears that none of the men who “fired the shot heard ‘round the world” left behind any progeny. Or if they did, they long ago departed those states. This country has had to put up with the likes of congress critters from the New England states and the pukes who put them into office none of whom are loyal to the US for far too long. Can’t we just build a wall to separate those states from the rest of the NE? Leave them to their own rot. Today, no one takes a stand when threatened in this manner. Everyone gives in to all these idiots. They all have the same theme - hate Trump.
“”The people you have pledged to protect””
They need someone to protect them? Too bad! Law enforcement agencies aren’t available to protect disloyal residents - they don’t deserve to be called citizens.
Every Democrat is a violent totalitarian y.
You may as well send your police officers to sensitivity training hosted by the Nation of Islam.
George Soros money supporting this newest hated?
It's my understanding palestinian security officials participate in presentations as well. Boycotting palestinians, not nice. Needless to say, police don't need training in terrorism or crowd control. At least not from Israel.
Anyone who thinks we are NOT in a revolution are out of their minds. These progressive leftist swine should be getting pushback from US.
Google “Tacuara”. It was a pro-NAZI,
anti-Semitic hate group in Argentina.
Eventually, after the PERON regime, it broke up and it’s members were arrested and imprisoned. Later, the individual
Members gravitated towards SOCIALIST LEFT WING radical groups, taking their anti-Semitism WITH THEM.
Anti semantic, pro Muslim views prevail once again. Conquest America is coming for us.
Elections have consequences.
Ah, it does make sense now that you posted that. Hard to believe the guy keeps getting e!ected.
