The first thing I would like people to do is go to http://www.google.com and click on “news,” and then in the search bar type “Jeffrey Verschleiser.” Read a few articles about his double-dipping toxic mortgages, and behavior like his, leaving the economies of entire nations in turmoil. This protest has to do with filtering money out of the U.S. economy through illegal fraud and banking. The criminals happen to be Jewish in many cases, but I don’t feel standing up to Jewish abuse of power to serve Israeli interests makes me anti-Semitic.
Then type in “BDS Palestine,” and you can continue to follow the money trail to Israel’s military complex and the repression and illegal walls built as well as the illegal seizure of Palestinian people’s homes (which is anti-Jewish in my opinion because it is godless and amoral and involves the gathering of the Jews to the Holy Land when there hasn’t been a messiah to tell them to do this yet and disregards the law of Moses completely).
So the point is, this protest was combining the Occupy Wall Street spirit and taking it a bit further, to follow the corruption from CEOs and bank executives who enjoyed the bailouts to war profiteering conducted by CEOs (some consumer products to boycott on the BDS Boycott Divestment and Sanctions campaign include McDonald’s, Starbucks and Estee Lauder to name a few) and directed toward the Holy Land, where there are many geopolitical interests (oil, strategic military position) besides the fabricated divine right to perform apartheid and ethnic displacement against the indigenous Christian and Muslim Palestinian Arabs.
If I say Zionism is evil and infiltrated into our politics through unregulated lobbying of the American Israel Public Affairs Committee, that does not make me anti-Semitic. Try going to YouTube and typing “Jews against Zionism” in the search bar. And please try to do your homework before attacking me and trying to sound like you are educated on this subject matter.
