Muslims Attack Pro-Israeli Demonstrators in Times Square

August 1, 2017

July 22, 2017. Times Square. 1 PM to 3 PM.

Muslims demonstrated in Times Square to demand the destruction of Israel. Counter-Demonstrators marched across them in support of Israel. As the day wore on, tempers got hot.

Read more to learn how violence erupted between the two groups.

The demonstrations started peacefully.

The Muslim message was clear

God is with those who serve others (Prophet Muhammad)

A young Israeli woman insisted Palestinians “only want PEACE.”

Did the Muslims hold another protest in Times Square to spread their message of PEACE?

The fist on the poster is not much of an olive branch, claiming to be peaceful while they sucker-punch the world. Violence is their “Peace”.

Protest co-sponsors:

International Action Network

Jews for Palestinian Right of Return
Labor for Palestine

Samidoun: Palestinian Prisoner Solidarity Network

Rutgers SJP

NYC Students for Justice in Palestine


Standing against this coalition was the Jewish Defense League’s New York chapter. They protested the recent murder of a Jewish family by a Palestinian terrorist.

The victims were celebrating the birth of a grandson when the “Palestinian” terrorist, 19-year-old Omar al-Abed, entered their home armed with a large knife and stabbed to death a father and his two adult children.”

Abed said, “He was wanting to commit a terror attack because of events surrounding the Temple Mount in Jerusalem.

Can there ever be peace when these Muslim protests continue to inspire Muslim murderers like Abed? Without apology?

The protest crowd included flag-runners and flag-thieves, all aggressive youths bussed in from New Jersey, spreading their message of “peace”.

They filled the air with chants, cheers and jeers, air horns, and “motivational” speakers, they all did their duty.

Playing to themselves and the confused passersby, they screamed their lies across 7th Ave. [One small pleasure, the press wasn’t interested.]

They had slogans, signs, chants, and t-shirts. The rabble at this protest have no intention of living PEACEFULLY with anyone, least of all the Jews in Israel.

Jews, get out of Palestine, Israel, and Gaza. Wherever there are Muslims — Jews Begone.

Sadly, their LIES continue unchallenged by the mainstream media.

That challenge was met without apology by the JDL-NY.

FACT: The TEMPLE MOUNT belongs to the JEWS. Occupation by the Muslims does not make it a mosque. It’s still the Temple Mount.
Not according to all the Jews seen this day. But, the public rarely understands the conflicting message of the Neturei Karta.

And a sign like “It’s not about religion” makes no sense when we know it’s ALL about religion: Islam is at war with the world.

They prayed.

They did the Zuhr noon-time Muslim prayer.

But peaceful prayer was not the main event. Muslim assaults on peaceful protestors they disagreed with set the tone of the demonstration.

The first assault was against JDL-NY demonstrators who were walking on a public sidewalk with two Israeli flags. Two thugs flung themselves on the male JDL protestor from behind. They knocked him down as they tried to rip the Israeli flag from his hands.

The Israeli didn’t go down so easily. He was knocked to the sidewalk and then slammed into the wall. But the thugs never got the flag.  Neither were they arrested.

A video of the first assault [which is seen at approx. 1:30 in the video]

Instead of going after the attackers, the officers prevailed upon the JDL to leave the area. The police promised that IF the Muslims appeared on the Israeli side and started causing more problems, the police would handle it.

IF? The Palestinians’ belligerence and willingness to pick a fight makes them uncontrollable. Yet the Israelis’ mere presence was characterized as the problem. The Israelis caused the assaults by legally walking back and forth with their flags. One snippy officer insisted the Israelis were an irritant CAUSING trouble, not the Muslim thugs.

The SECOND assault came after several Muslim continued to carry their signs and chant behind the Israelis, on the Israeli side of the avenue.  The two officers near them seemed uninterested in the Muslim interlopers. So the Muslims hung around, waiting to strike.

That second assault involved at least four more Muslims, whose sole purpose was to engage – incite – by walking back and forth behind us while shouting Free, Free “Palestine”. Finally, one of our Israeli JDL flag-bearers turned towards the aggressors – holding her flag high. Immediately she was body-slammed from behind by a Muslim.

Her flag ripped from her hands — the thief ran down the sidewalk —  but someone in our group caught him and returned the flag.

The second assault happened before the video starts. I witnessed the assault — the body-slam and the Israeli flag ripped from her hands. The video begins just after the flag was re-captured.

Finally, the police managed — with difficulty — to get the pack of Muslims back to their side of the avenue.

No Muslim attackers were arrested.

Knowing other countries’ problems in controlling hordes of belligerent Muslims, the NYPD aimed to keep the Times Square thugs placated.

EXCLUSIVE: Police lose control as “Palestinian” demonstrators menace supporters of Israel in London” (Pamela Geller)

BUT WHO is doing the controlling? The police or the THUGS?

Some of the NYPD officers still wore the black-band of mourning on their badges (in memory of assassinated NYPD Officer Miosotis Familia).

The police are under attack. Yet they remain on the street, working to keep the peace while protecting these thugs and bullies.

The police know they have the support and respect of the pro-Israel protetors, even when there is disagreement. Still, they were assaulted twice by those peaceful Muslim youths.

Knowing there was always a possibility of confrontations orchestrated by Muslim thugs, the NYPD asked the pro-Israel protestors to make nice and keep the peace. Why? Because the police know who they can trust.

Despite the violence, The demonstration continued with speakers for the Palestinians. This is a part of speech supporting Palestine and the al-Aqsa mosque protest by a 17 years old Muslim woman, Hebh Jamal:

“Salaam Alaikum. I want to just acknowledge that I understand how hard it is to ignore what is happening on the other side. (referring to the JDL protestors) These people are the ones who are taking our loved ones.  Taking things that are meaningful to us. Taking our country away from us.  So I get it.  But I want you guys right now ….  to understand my words … I want to remind you that this is not enough.  It is not enough to go to protests.  It is not enough to say #FreePalestine . We have to do more than that. […] Right here in this country, two senators are creating a bill (Senator Gillibrand and Chuck Schumer) are creating a bill that makes boycotting Israel illegal. Why are they trying so hard to stop us? The least we can do is advocate against this. Advocate against those who try to silence us. Why are they trying so hard to stop us? […] it is only over our dead bodies will we have freedom […] the least we can do is show ‘Palestinians’ that we stand in solidarity with them and the resistance”. [chanting in Arabic]

Of course, NOT a WORD was spoken about the murders of the Jewish family in Israel.  If you dare to ask, “What about…” , all you get is “The IDF murders innocent Muslims”.

The Salomon family had sat down for Friday night Shabbat dinner in their home in Halamish. They had invited their friends to come later that evening for a celebration to mark the birth of a grandson when suddenly a Palestinian terrorist infiltrated their home, and stabbed Yosef, 70, and two of his children – Elad, 36 and Chaya, 46 – to death.

It took only 15 minutes from the moment the terrorist, Omar al-Abed (19) climbed over the fence around the settlement of Halamish to the moment he was killed by an off-duty soldier, IDF Spokesman Brig.-Gen. Ronen Manelis said on Saturday.

…What is different now is that there is more focus on religion, especially in the last few days, which we didn’t see before. Such a focus makes it more dangerous because it has more support in the Arab world,” he said.


Ever vigilant, the JDL counter-protest stayed on until the Muslim al-Aqsa protest marched east on 42nd St..

To understand the difference between the two opposing sides in this battle, flashback to the May 25 AFDI Protest/ Rally led by Pamela Geller. It is a vivid example of unchecked harassment. They insisted they were immune from police enforcement of the peace.

In the two pictures that follow — the speakers-stage is blue canopy on the right, the agitators on the left — and just a few police standing between the WHISTLES and the stage.

The ruse is that as long as passersby can move through the sidewalk, passing their noxious gauntlet, they demand the right to stand there and make a lot of noise. This was contrary to past police rules-of-engagement to keep moving and do not stay in one place. This had been the rule-of-law — until now.

Flash forward to July 22, 2017 and the plea to “PLEASE keep things peaceful.”

Remembering the obscene whistle-blowing and shouting that the NYPD seemed unable to control on May 25th, I left (briefly) to buy the LAST $5 whistle at Modell’s. I hurried back, whistle-ready. ONE whistle was better than none.

That ONE high-pitched whistle can carry across the avenue. Enough reactions from the Muslims made it apparent – THEY heard me. (Shushing me)

Unfortunately – so did the two officers standing with us. NOW the pressure was on to please ‘Give it a rest‘.  I responded, “I support you guys, officer. But, I can do this (whistle).  I know ’cause at our protest, they were allowed to use multiple whistles. Standing on top of our speakers.” He was not happy. GUILTING me as he walked away with “Thank you for your co-operation”.

It worked. A few more long winded blasts and I caved.

Then there’s FACT vs their Fiction,

The Metal Detectors of Islam:  (Regarding)…. the metal detectors (and surveillance cameras) that (were) installed last week at the entrances to the Temple Mount/Haram ash-Sharif.

The episode has raised the question of just what constitutes legitimate security measures at Islamic holy shrines and iconic mosques. We live in a time when the primary threat to the security of these sites arises from Muslims themselves—notably, extremists bent on using them as launching pads for violent acts designed to destabilize and terrorize. Across the Muslim world, governments are acutely aware of the vulnerabilities of these sites, and have taken measures to secure them. In particular, they have resorted to a very commonplace technology: metal detectors. At this link, I provide some prime examples, from Egypt, Iran, Iraq, Saudi Arabia, Syria, and the United Arab Emirates.

How do these states differ from Israel? They are effective and sole sovereigns over the holy shrines and major mosques in their territory. Israel apparently is not. “The Metal Detectors of Islam,here, for a quick trip to Islam’s bucket list of top sites.”
