Hundreds march in Tel Aviv against growing right-wing incitement

Demonstrators took the streets of central Tel Aviv to show their support for Israeli human rights organizations under attack by right-wing incitement over the past weeks. Breaking the Silence executive director: ‘We were born into the occupation, we can be the ones to end it.’

Over a thousand Israelis marched Saturday night in Tel Aviv to demonstrate against incitement and occupation, and in support of Israeli human rights organizations, peace, equality, and social justice.

The protest was organized by the group “Omdim Beyachad” (Standing Together) in response to the recent incitement by far-right group Im Tirzu and government ministers against Breaking the Silence and other human rights organizations last week.

The demonstrators gathered at Gan Meir in central Tel Aviv and headed toward the Likud headquarters just across the street. There a few short speeches were delivered on “the incitement that begins in the government offices,” which then turned into a march on King George Street, ending in the monument for slain Prime Minister Yitzhak Rabin. The protesters chanted slogans such as “Jews and Arabs refuse to be enemies,” and “The occupation is a disaster — only peace will bring security.”

Two separate counter protests also took place, which included swearing at left-wing protesters and calling out “Kahane lives.” Likud MK Oren Hazan, who previously tried to deceive Breaking the Silence by submitting a fake testimony, was one of the participants. One right-wing protestor threw a bottle at the march and was arrested.

Representatives of Israel’s peace camp, including Peace Now stalwart Yariv Oppenheimer, MK Dov Khenin (Joint List), MK Ilan Gilon (Meretz) and Breaking the Silence’s Executive Director Yuli Novak, spoke at the Rabin monument. “The incitement and threats do not stop with human rights organizations or the Left, they reach the President,” said Oppenheimer, in reference to the campaign of incitement against President Reuven Rivlin taking place since he participated in the Haaretz conference in New York last week, where members of Breaking the Silence also spoke. “We are in a struggle for Israeli democracy and we have no choice but to win.”

“This week saw the release of a devastating poverty report. We saw a devastating gas deal being signed. And now they are trying to blame everything on Breaking the Silence?” asked Khenin. “We see that an occupying nation cannot be free, and that the struggles for democracy, peace, and social justice are connected to one another. We will not give up on our home.”

“We love this country more than the settlers, we are willing to compromise over it,” added Gilon. “What kind of love is greater than that of compromise over this land and the people who live in it?”

Novak, who was welcomed with thunderous applause, lauded the many soldiers who have broken their silence over the past week — following attacks by the Right — and described what they went through during their service in the occupied territories. “This situation is not predetermined. We are a generation that was born into the occupation, we are the generation that can end it,” she said.

The police, who accompanied the protest in big numbers, were on higher alert than usual. Many police officers walked around with their fingers on the trigger of their guns, while officers with police dogs encircled the protesters the entire way. The police also shined flashlights on the balconies of all the homes above the route of the protest. I cannot recall this kind of police activity in any protest. The police did their job and allowed the march, as well as the counter protests, to take place safely. How unfortunate that we have reached a point that threats against nonviolent demonstrators in central Tel Aviv have become so tangible.

      Yes! We who love freedom and justice must break the silence and shout out to stop the occupation! Israel cannot be free until Palestinians are free. Resistance leads to hope and a true democracy for Jews and Palestinians.

        Lillian Rosengarten (LoL..), Palestinians cannot be free until they accept two states for two peoples: an Arab state and a Jewish state – as called for by UN Resolution. Not too hard to understand, is it?

        • bryan

          If you advocate the expulsion of all the illegal settlers then you have a just claim that two states for two peoples is still possible in line with numerous UN resolutions; if you don’t then you will have to accept that that solution is dead and a one state solution is the only option to maintain democracy and avoid apartheid pariahdom.

            Bryan alias Brian alias Ben alias BruceGould alias etc.

            You are regurgitating and parroting the same Illogic over and over again. Israel has offered the Palestinians (a) 100% of Gaza, (b) 100% equivalent of the West Bank, (c) Arab neighborhoods in East Jerusalem as their Capital, (d) shared sovereignty of the holy basin! There is no reason why the Palestinians cannot have their own state there. But, the Palestinian leadership rejected all that, because (e) they, among others, did not get to flood Israel with Arab “refugees” and use it to alter the demographic balance in the Jewish State and in the end achieve what they militarily could not: tow states: one ARAB State and one ARAB State, with the Jewish State gone. If you think that the “expulsion of Jews” will bring peace, so also would the expulsion of the Arabs as well – by your own logic. Does that mean that you accept the Lieberman-plan? Or, does that mean you support expelling the Palestinian Arabs to Jordan? What is it gonna be, moron?

            You hopelessly contradict yourself, even in your apologetics: (b) Israel has offered 100% (equivalent, whatever that means – probably a few bits of sand in Sinai) of the West Bank, and (c) (unspecified) neighbourhoods in East Jerusalem. No Israeli leader has offered a proper peace since your ilk murdered the last one to make an almost acceptable offer – but the entirety of East Jerusalem is in the West Bank – so if you are so generously offering the entire West Bank, that means the entirety of East Jerusalem for a Palestinian capital. Are you seriously proposing that – if so you could reignite peace talks – or get murdered by some fundamentalist religious nutcase – but please don’t keep going on about Palestinian denial of the peace process when your side holds an entire pack of cards, and occasionally offers to “sacrifice” one card from the pack, with hefty conditions.

          Merkava, and just exactly how would that two state solution work since Israel has carved up the occupied territories with settlements and blockades, leaving nothing more than a patchwork quilt of ghettos. Anyone who has been paying attention knows that Israel deliberately undermined the peace process, leaving the two state solution impossible. Hamas has repeatedly offered a 10 year truce, with 10 reasonable conditions which Israel turned down. Israel can’t continue to expropriate the land and resources if there’s a truce, now can they?

          It’s nice to see these Israeli’s taking to the street to protest in the name of justice.

            You obvious has neither been paying attention nor understand that the Arab propaganda which you parrot here daily are not facts and in fact harm the peace process.

            The Settlements occupy LESS THAN 3% of the West Bank. If you didn’t know that, you know it now.

            Quit spreading lies. Your lies and Arab rejectionism and propaganda are the real obstacle to peace, not the “Settlements”! Why do you think the Palestinian Arabs rejected the Olmert-offer? That offer contained, among others, (a) 100% of (b) contiguous equivalent of the West Bank!

            Now, you say:

            “Hamas has repeatedly offered a 10 year truce, with 10 reasonable conditions which Israel turned down. Israel can’t continue to expropriate the land and resources if there’s a truce, now can they?”

            Why “a 10 year truce”? Does that include “a 10 years” disarmament and demilitarization of HAMAS, or, Should HAMA be allowed to arm itself, import heavier missiles and rocket for Israeli civilian populations, construct more tunnels under civilian homes, schools and hospitals in Gaza, etc?

            Pls. enlighten us, oh genius, with your eloquent proposals that will bring “peace in our time”.

            The tremendous cruelty and criminality of the Israeli occupation is reflected in the coarse, thuggish tone of this utterly asinine Merkava. How she thinks she is anything but a poster child for the duplicitous, thieving, thuggish spirit of the occupation is simply beyond me. The lack of insight? The unembarassable quality? Just mind blowing.

            Obviously BEN is not able to do simple math. What part of 12% of 3% does BEN not understand?

            Does BEN not understand that the claim that the settlements, which occupies LESS THAN 3% of the Westbank, “controls 42%” is not factual but political and does not change the fact that the Settlements in FACT occupy LESS THAN 3% of the West Bank? Why is BEN regurgitating the SAME debunked nonsense he stated a year ago? Why is BEN posing as “Israel”, JahnMarie, LillyRosengarten, Bryan, BruceGould, AndrewR. etc. and claiming that he is from the “US” and “Great Britain”? What kind of a deranged psychopath is this BEN-guy?

            Here is one of BEN’s anti-Semitic gibberish master-pieces while he posed as “Israel”
            “#Self-neutralizingZionistOxygenThieves #LOL@PsychoticZionistMouthBreathers

            1. There has never been a sovereign Israeli Jerusalem.
            2. There isn’t a sovereign Israeli Jerusalem.
            3. There never will be a sovereign Israeli Jerusalem.
            Ergo, your moronic hasbara is nothing but meaningless Zionist masturbation, which only represents your broken delusional “thinking”, Zionist oxygen thief.”

            As I recall, even on the eve of the collapse of Soviet Russia and Apartheid South Africa, Ivan and Vladimir, and Jan and Pieter were not as bereft of positive arguments as are Israel and Merkava. Evil regimes are not destroyed by external forces: they whither and die from inside, as their supporters lose the grasp of reality and the capability to keep defending them.

      Let me recommend “Politicide: The Real Legacy of Ariel Sharon” by Baruch Kimmerling. I might also point out what many Israelis are starting to suspect – if you look at a map of Greater Israel there is no room for a viable Palestinian state.

        All the Palestinians have to do is agree to (a) two states for (b) two peoples: an ARAB State and a JEWISH State. The Arab State means “the Nation State of the Arabs. The Jewish state means “the Nation-State of the Jewish People.

        Ya wanna tell us why the Palestinians reject a JEWISH State, but accept an ARAB State (that has the Sharia as source of law)?

        Is “BruceGould” able to think, or does his “creator” only use “him” to blurt out some dumb stuff and mostly copy from other websites and paste here for propaganda purposes?

            Yeah, whenever BEN loses an argument and runs out of ideas, he suddenly melts away like the little coward he is, disappears and metamorphoses into one of his aliases, in this case: “Israel”, and starts hallucinating about Ginger Eis. BEN runs away from his fellow men, but dreams about Ginger Eis whom he is obsessed with and who called him “a pig”, told him he is not worth responding to and never responds to him.

        Deal with the calls by the Palestinian leadership, clerics and your Muslim-brothers to murder innocent men, women and children who are Jews.

            Gopstein is arguably very crude in his use of metaphors to express his opinions on how – in HIS OWN opinion – “assimilation” is destroying Jewish cultures and values, but YOU, BEN, on the other hand, are a vile racist and anti-Semite. You complain about Gopstein, but YOU are a worse racist than Gopstein (assuming Gopstein is more racist than the Catholics, Muslims etc. who ban marriage between Catholics resp. Muslims and non-Catholics reps. Non-Muslims, etc.).

            YOU, Ben, pose as “Israel”, “Muslim Jew”, “Average American” and “Viktor Arajs” to post on THIS SITE the kind of vile anti-Semitic vitriol seen on websites such as Stormfront, Hamas, Islamic Jihad, etc. Arab voices, incl. on Official PA-channels to expel and murder Jews are music to your ears. YOU claim that you are from the “United States” and “Great Britain”, but you dwell in the comment sections of Jewish websites EVERY SINGLE DAY fixating on- and obsessing about Jews and Israel, ranting and raging against Jews and Israel like a maniac and using MULTIPLE ALIASES to do that!, while neither knowing nor caring about what goes on in the countrIES you claim you come from, or elsewhere!

            Merkava, I’m calling you out. All of this above is standard right wing extremist vilification on your part. Vile stuff. And your absolutely standard MOA. You have tried for a long time to intimidate folks here with this fascist bullying. But now you’re out, you’ve declared yourself. A Gopstein-defender. I realize that your name calling is a standard right wing trick. Gopstein does it. You do it. You call me and others here whatever you like, in the crudest bullying way, “an anti-Semitic turd, blah blah blah.” Gopstein would call me a blood sucking leftist traitor blah blah blah.” It’s the same basic practice. It’s all in the same ballpark of right wing extremist vilification. Hate as technique. Your standard MOA. We’re on to it, buddy. All you do in verbal form here is what the guys in black and yellow t-shirts do when they show up to beat up peaceful demonstrators and beat up anyone who tells them what time it is with an Arabic accent. As well, deliberately merging me with other characters like ‘Israel’, as is your routine dishonest practice, is part of the standard extremist bag of tricks. Gopstein does it. You do it. (In fact, much Netanyahu’s government does it these days.)

Merkava, are you too banning Christmas in the Holy Land? Are you too throwing out “the blood sucking vampires”? Or you’d like to if you could but you like to keep up appearances? (So amazing this man uses classic anti-Semitic language like this. So amazing this man drums up a scapegoat for Israel’s troubles: today’s Christians. The mind boggles. You’re making excuses for this man.) This is your concept of a “Jewish and democratic” state? America’s ally? Arguably? You all in? What an out in the open little fascist we have here. I must say I didn’t expect you to come out of your closet so frankly. But here we are.

But you can’t handle that, but instead use multiple aliases, in this case: “Israel” to continue your sexual obsession with- and vendetta against her. Not only that, you hang on her every word and expression, mimic her and try to be her as well (on other websites). “Israel” must love you so much that everywhere there is BEN, there is “Israel” – i.e. BEN’s other personality, responding on your behalf and showing us what a psychotic beast BEN is. Let’s hope you do not sexually assault some ladies on the street while hallucinating that they are Ginger.

            You are a very sick person, BEN.

            Just more standard far right vilification tactics from Merkava. Yawn. Understand: you’ve thoroughly discredited yourself and nothing you ever say on +972 can or will be taken seriously. As a defender of Benzti Gopstein, you have no business being on +972 at all.

            BEN “Zakkai”

            The true nature of the psychotic racist and anti-Semite you are we truly see when you pose as “Israel”, “Muslim Jew”, “Average American” and “Viktor Arajs”.

            Look up-thread and behold the filth you posted while posing as “Israel”!

            Gopstein might be nuts, etc., but he is 100x better a human being than YOU: cancer.

            The true nature of the psychotic and racist Zionist anti-Semite you are we truly see when you pose as “Merkava”, “Merav”, “ICat” and “Hercules”.

            Look up-thread and behold the filth you posted while posing as “Merkava”!

            Anti-semitic Zionist filth like you would praise Hitler if it served your cancerous ideology.

            GINGER (“Lies”)

            The true nature of the psychotic racist Zionist anti-Semite you are we trully see when you pose as “Merkava”, “Merav”, “ICat” and “Hercules”.

            You can’t whitewash the continual crimes against humanity being perpetrated daily by Zionist terrorists in the name of all Jews, so, you deploy multiple aliases to distract, which is something 972mag.com’s other resident ziotard, “Gastav” alias “Araby” alias etc., also does in his exchanges! Obviously this “Ben” character is always on your mind, Ginger Lies. Long time ago he called you “a sick puppy”, told you that you are not worth responding to and he can barely hide his disdain for you. But you can’t handle that, so you instead use multiple aliases, in this case: “Merav”, to continue your sexual obsession with- and vendetta against him. Not only that, you hang on his every word and expression, parroting the same anti-semitic mumbo jumbo and hallucinating that I am this “Ben” character (and that “Ben” is on other websites). “Merkava” must love you so much that everywhere there is GINGER LIES, there is “Merkava” – i.e. you are one of GINGER LIES’ many sockpuppets, responding to her, and on her behalf, and showing us what a psychotic Zionist beast you are, GINGER LIES. Let’s hope you do not sexually assault some men women and children on the street, while hallucinating that they are “Ben”.

            You are a very sick person, GINGER LIES.

      I’m taking Bradley Burston’s advice:

      “Fascism in Israel? It’s up to you
      I’m sick to death of the Zionism of horseshit, of the incitement which prides itself on hatred and, yes, that ‘beautiful face’ of fascism. It’s up to every one of us. We can stand up now, or be put down later. Like dogs.

      Bradley Burston

      “…This is the lesson. A simple one, really. Stand up to a bully – for that, at yellow-and-black-heart, is what a fascist is – and they may well stand down.

      But we’re facing much more than just one dipshit group of creeps. This is a broad campaign, grass-roots as well as governmental, to bully, intimidate, silence, and in many cases explicitly threaten people whose views take issue with an across-the-board pro-occupation, pro-settlement, exclusively-Orthodox, anti-democratic, anti-Palestinian agenda – and then to lie about it, pretending that it’s “centrist” and the consensus….”

        Bryan BEN “Israel” Zakkai,

        Now that you have copied and pasted the opinion of one political pundit to feed your obsession with Jews and the Jewish state, lets take a look at the country you claim you come from: the United States (btw. you claim that you are from “Britain” also):

        “Politicians of all races, entertainers and the occasional athlete or public intellectual locking arms and singing freedom songs from the civil rights movement more than half a century ago does little if anything to confront the searing issues that are plaguing many communities of color in the 21st century.
        • Unarmed Black men (and some women) being routinely shot by police officers.
        • Students of color and non-White faculty and administrators, college students and faculty routinely enduring relentless forms of microaggressions from fellow students and colleagues on their campuses.
        • Our current African American president, since the day he was inaugurated as president, consistently being subjected to disgraceful acts of obstruction, personal slights and blatant disrespect.
        • Black college graduates are more than likely as their White cohorts to be unemployed.
        • Applicants with Black-sounding names are considerably less likely to be contacted by employers than applicants with more White-sounding names.
        • Black customers being disproportionately more likely to be followed by staff and, in some cases, detained by police officers in stores for suspicion of shoplifting — “Shopping While Black”. http://www.huffingtonpost.com/elwood-d-watson/it-will-take-more-than-a-cup-of-coffee_b_6944958.html

        So, why is BEN “Israel” Zakkai fixating on- and obsessing about Jews and Israel like a lunatic, playing for subscription to Jewish dailies, while neither knowing of nor caring about even bigger social quagmire in the country he claims he comes from or having a paid subscription for any single daily from there or any other country? Shouldn’t he be fighting for justice, racial and social equality, etc. in his own country FIRST? What kind of a compulsive obsessive lunatic is BEN “Israel” Zakkai?

          Merav GINGER “Merkava” LIES,

          Now you have copied and pasted some random article dealing with serious social issues in the country you claim you come from, the United States, to further feed your sick obsession with “Ben”, lets take a look at your other sick obsession: Jews and Palestine.

          So, why is GINGER “Merkava” LIES, fixating on- and obsessing about Jews in Palestine like a lunatic, paying for subscriptions to “Jewish” dailies, while neither knowing of nor caring about even bigger social quagmire in the country SHE claims she comes from, or having a paid subscription for any single daily from there or any other country? Shouldn’t she be fighting for justice, racial and social equality, etc. in her own country FIRST? What kind of a compulsive obsessive anti-semitic American Zionist lunatic is GINGER “Merkava” LIES?

      “The difference between Palestinians suspected of terrorism and Jews suspected of terrorism is staggering.”

      http://www.haaretz.com/israel-news/1.693756

      “Helen Freedman, executive director of the right-wing Americans for a Safe Israel, said that her group would not take a stance opposing the Israeli security authorities’ use of harsh interrogation tactics. “Whatever Arabs experience in prison is something separate and apart from what Jews experience,” she said. “Arabs are terrorists, they’re killers… Every single day there’s Arab terrorism. So why are we equating that with what these boys supposedly did?””

      “What About Left Wing Incitement?

      … The Jerusalem Post’s former journalist Larry Derfner, days after innocent Israeli civilians were murdered by terrorists near Eilat, wrote, on his blog, that such attacks on Israelis are a justifiable weapon for Palestinians to employ in order to overcome the “occupation.” Derfner wrote: “Whoever the Palestinians were who killed the eight Israelis near Eilat last week, however vile the ideology was, they were justified to attack”.

        “What About Left Wing Incitement?”

        What about anti-semitic American Zionist mouth-breathers who deploy multiple aliases to spew obscene blood libels, whitewash war crimes and justify crimes against humanity incitement?:

        Ginger LIES: “Everywhere you have Muslim Arabs, there rules mayhem, murders, mass murders, beheadings, rapes, ethnic cleansing and Genocide – from Iraq to Syria, from Libya to Yemen, etc. Your justification is the same justification offered for the slaughter of over 3000 innocent Americans in New York by Muslim Arab jihadis. Your justification is the same justification offered for the Genocide, ethnic cleansing, mass beheadings, mass rapes of innocents and other crimes against humanity being committed RIGHT NOW by Muslim Arabs against the Yazidis and the Christians in Iraq, Syria and elsewhere. It is nothing new and your attempts at whitewashing are at best miserably clumsy and say a lot about who you are and the hate in your heart. When Muslim Arabs thirst for blood, they arm themselves with meat cleavers, axes and machetes and start butchering innocent people in the street and/or running them over with cars and busses, while claiming that they are fighting for “human rights” and “striking out at those seen as the oppressors”?”

        What about YOUR incitement, Ginger LIES alias “Merkava” alias Hercules alias Daniel alias etc.?
