Pro-Palestinian activists interrupted the hometown kickoff for the presidential campaign of Sen. Cory Booker.
Booker (D-New Jersey), held the event in Newark, New Jersey, where he served as mayor from 2006-2013. The rally on Saturday kicked off a two-week national tour for Booker, titled Justice For All.
The pro-Palestinian protesters picked up on the theme, shouting Justice for Palestine, according to reports. They waved Palestinian flags and keffiyahs, a traditional Arab headdress.
You say Justice For All and he named, you know, clean water, housing, affordable health care, freedom but he doesnt talk about Palestine. Theyre struggling just as much as us here even more, Wajeeh Abushawish, who was part of the group, told Yahoo News.
The protesters were part of the Students for Justice for Palestine chapter at Rutgers Newark campus.
Booker met with some of the protesters after the event.
Booker is a co-sponsor of a Senate bill that would penalize businesses that comply with Israel boycotts.
He announced his presidential bid in late January.
If he wants the Democrat nomination, he really needs to step up his criticism of Israel and Jews.
They don’t like him either.
Building a national political party based on identity politics is like building a home on quick sand.
The Democrat Party no longer represents the value of middle America. The Democrat Party is the party of special interest groups and none of these groups share any goal except to gain power over the rest of us.
What a mish-mash - I can’t even read this. And what the devil does this mean?
“”Booker is a co-sponsor of a Senate bill that would penalize businesses that comply with Israel boycotts.””
Penalize companies that go along with boycotting Israel? I’m afraid I need a translation of that...he does/he does not want companies to boycott Israel?
"Meet Imtiaz Ahmad Mohammad: A muslim immigrant from Pakistan who became a U.S. citizen 4yrs ago & is running for FL House of Representatives for the 2020 election Mohammad is the ONLY candidate that has filed to run for this seat Mahmood is a friend & donor of Hillary Clinton"
Go back and check out the story of his political rise in New Jersey. I think he spent more time raising money giving speeches before New Jersey Jewish groups than he spent sleeping in bed.
The crazies have become so crazy they are eating their own.
Stand back and watch it happen.
The Dims are reaping karma from the pro-Islamist positions they sowed.
>>> kicked off a two-week national tour for Booker, titled Justice For All.” <<<
Tens of people want to hear Sen. Booger.
The gay muslin alliance..?
LOL. I really hope we see a lot more of this as the primary goes on. The Dem Party created a radical interest group Frankenstein fueled on rage and grievance to keep its election hopes alive. Now hopefully it will turn on them.
“They dont like him either.”...
I’d suggest to Booker that he fold his tent and save the money he’s wasting on his negative, losing campaign. He is a loser from the “get-go”
We should have never let any so-called Palestinians into this country.
He’s from NJ. Large Jewish population in NJ. He does not want businesses to boycott Israel.
I felt the same way.
I’m scratching may head thinking, “Who the hell edited this?’
If “Palestine” is their homeland, how are there enough in the US to make a significant voting bloc?
