On the first day of the operation in Gaza on July 8, a man bearing a “Middle Eastern appearance” pepper-sprayed a Jewish 17-year-old girl on a Paris street, the group said. “Dirty Jewess, inshallah you will die,” the man screamed at her, according to the BNVCA report. Inshallah, indeed.

And this is just the beginning …

We are seeing this violence everywhere — ghastly attacks on Jews across the world: San Francisco, Los Angeles (where the Department of Homeland Security officer had to fire his weapon to stop the Muslim mob), Australia,  Berlin, New York, Chicago, The HagueMorocco, London, Paris (and more in  France) and Malmo.

These genocide attacks on pro-Israel rallies are not new:
Death marches 2012
Death marches Worldwide 2009
Any time freedom lovers stand in solidarity with the Jewish state, they risk assault.

Here’s what happened in the city of Boston, the city of the jihad bombing, the city that allows vicious anti-Israel posters on buses and subways but refused to run our pro-Israel savage ad.

On July 11, a pro-Hamas woman attacked pro-Israel  Chloe Valdary at a rally in Boston, grabbing her camera and scuffling with her. Watch that incident:

Pro-Israel students ‘assaulted’ at Boston protest

Jewish students called ‘Jesus killers’ and swarmed by dozens of anti-Israel demonstrators at rally outside Israeli consulate

BOSTON – A protest outside Israel’s consular offices in downtown Boston turned ugly Friday when 100 anti-Israel demonstrators “swarmed” some dozen Israel supporters.

Surrounded by pro-Palestinian activists chanting “Jesus killers” and “drop dead,” several pro-Israel students claimed they were “physically assaulted” by the protesters at the rally’s close.

Whereas the pro-Israel supporters were mainly university students, the anti-Israel crowd was largely female, and older, accompanied by a dozen children holding signs and helping chant about “Israeli apartheid” and “war crimes.”

Post-rally, the pro-Israel students immediately took to social media, exposing what they say Israel activists around the US face – to varying degrees – when they decide to publicly support the Jewish state.

Organized by activist Adam Akkad and Jewish Voice for Peace’s local chapter, the demonstrators protested the Israel Defense Force’s current Operation Protective Edge, but made no reference to the hundreds of Hamas rockets targeting Israeli civilians, or the use of Gaza civilians as human shields for Hamas.

“There were eleven of us here, and that was not enough,” said Aviva Malveira, a recent Boston University graduate who was among the Israel supporters swarmed by protesters.

Wrapped in a large Israeli flag and wearing dark sunglasses, Malveira stood in the middle of what she called a “tiny pro-Israel island,” surrounded by screaming protesters. She and other supporters sang the Israeli national anthem “HaTikvah” and Hebrew song “Oseh Shalom” (“Make Peace”), which Malveira said further inflamed the protesters.

“Some phones were knocked out of our hands, Israeli flags were yanked, and a whole lot of disgusting things were shouted at us,” said Malveira, who now works for StandWithUs, a pro-Israel PR outfit.

The incident took place as anti-Israel protesters ended their demonstration outside the consulate and headed to the Boston Common for another rally. As protesters crossed the street outside the consulate, they surrounded the Israel supporters standing between them and the adjacent Public Garden.

After several minutes of hurled insults and physical contact, police officers intervened to restore order.

“School may not be in session, but Israel-haters take no breaks,” said Malveira. “I think the Boston [Jewish] community needs to do a lot more in terms of rallies and public support – actual mobilizing – instead of hiding online or limiting their support to synagogue vigils,” she said.

One of the assaulted students – Chloe Valdary, a University of New Orleans senior – pressed charges on Saturday at the Boston Police Department against a woman related to the incident.

“There were several cops who literally did nothing,” wrote Valdary on her Facebook page after the protest. She also posted videos and photos of the “disturbing” incident, the first of which she has faced in Boston.

“They surrounded us, they swarmed us,” said Valdary, who is in Boston for the summer as a fellow with the Committee for Accuracy in Middle East Reporting (CAMERA).

“I looked each and every one of them in the eyes,” she wrote. “And I could tell that they’re confused by me because I’m black. But they are such cowards. While they were chanting at me, I was just smiling at them,” Valdary wrote.

Though fewer than a dozen student activists were present, they ran the political spectrum of campus Israel activism from J-Street U to traditional Zionist groups.

“I thought it was important to talk to these anti-Semites and hypocrites, who say they care about the Palestinians,” said Raphael Fils, a Boston University junior.

Last month, Fils founded JUMP, a campus Israel advocacy group willing to partner across the pro-Israel spectrum, said Fils.

“It was scary and I did not feel safe,” said Fils of Friday’s incident. “I don’t understand how these people are pro-Palestinian when they defend Hamas using their own children as human shields. That’s not pro-Palestinian,” he said.

Among the Israel supporters, several young Jewish communal professionals encouraged students to stand their ground and come up with their own chants and banners.

“They said some nasty things, like calling us Jesus killers, asking how many babies we had each murdered, telling us we would burn,” said Samantha Mandeles, a former student activist who now trains students in Israel advocacy for CAMERA.

  • IslamSucks!

    Every time these Islamic defenders protest it throws salt on the wounds of 9/11 and every other act of muslim-terror hurled at the Western world. We’re supposed to believe that Islam has been hijacked by a handful of radicals. But every protest and whine from these allah-nuts comes from the same bucket of religious slop that the terrorists crawl out of, they are two sides of the same coin.

    It’s very difficult to deal with a people that find their highest calling in the hatred of others. Islam is soaked in the blood of those that refused to bow to their demented “prophet.” We need only look at that fact of history to know our future as it relates to Islam.

  • El Cid

    Congratulations to everyone who turned out to support Israel. God bless.

    We need our leaders to speak out about the Cult of Death that is sweeping the world–in 75 years the world has gone from Brown Shirts to Berkas. Nothing seems to change.

    Why do people want to be enslaved? What will they gain by killing Jews?

        • IslamDownpressesHumanity

          These cowards have a long history of denigrating Christianity. It’s disgusting that they have nothing to say about islam today, or even back then, because I’m positive they weren’t ignorant of the totalitarian, xenophobic, genocidal, Jew hating nature of islam back then either. They have all the moral high ground of Penn Jillette, who freely criticises every other religion except islam because he’s a coward.

  • TOMIAS

    Why is the news reports not reporting this violence of the Muslims against Jews????
    No report of it on the news broadcasts.

    • Ellen K

      Because the news agencies largely believe they hold the moral high ground when Jews are attacked.

      • iprazhm

        Because they are socialists who hate God. They are reprobates who are morally defunct.

  • AltheSpiceman

    I suggest all the Mohammadans and the other Jew haters read the following on who killed Jesus in the Christian Scriptures. John 10: 14-18; Acts 2:22-24; Philippians 2: 5-11. The Jews did not “kill” Jesus. He laid down his life for all humanity and took it up again. He is alive and he is coming back. What is happening now is just the start of the birth pangs before his return.

    • IslamDownpressesHumanity

      Yeshua, was Jewish, as were all his disciples and none of them ever renounced Judaism AFAIK.

    • Mike_W20

      Also, when Jesus underwent His sacrifice for mankind’s salvation, the vast majority of Jews were elsewhere, going about their daily lives; perhaps out in boats fishing or in the fields tending crops.
      It has always seemed illogical to me when some claim that “the Jews killed Jesus”.
      Personally, I cannot understand how Jews do not embrace Christ as Messiah; they should be proud to have been the people God chose for the hypostatic union.
      Also, Jesus is saviour for ALL mankind; not just the Jews.
      Maybe that’s what the obdurate Jews are annoyed about: they thought only they were to be saved.

    I don’t see “women with their children,” I see (mostly) fat pro-Palestinian Mooslims USING children as tools of hate.

    Islam is a barbaric curse — a pox upon humanity.

    • Bob

      you’re a curse upon humanity you ignorant imbecile

      • https://twitter.com/LibsHateUs Ban Liberals

        Ah, an intellectual heard from, likely a liberal living in California or Chicago, probably a Mooslim sympathizer or worse, someone who thinks Allah and Muhammed were not perverts, and who probably cowers whenever Mooslim scum bark at him.

        Oh, Bob, oh Bob, come out of the closet Bob, the Mooslims have all gone.

        P.S. Mooslims, especially their vile offspring, are lower than even you, Bobby boy.

  • Ellen K

    I have known three separate groups of people from Palestine and without exception they were both racist and steeped in the verbiage of hatred for Jews and Israel. Even when confronted with the absolute untrue nature of what they believe, they are radical and irrational.

    “Jesus killers”, yeah like the islamic-nazis who run Gaza are so sympathetic to the Christians being murdered, raped and persecuted by their fellow islamic-swine throughout the islamic world.

    This going to become our every day life.
    I say ban islam now, before it’s too late.

    • Aaaa

      lol ban a religion…you’re so ****ing ignorant

      • Recycle Bin

        Islam is more a supremacist ideology (fascism) then a religion.

  • SCREW SOCIALISM

    Chant this:

    From the River to the Sea,
    Pal-e-SWINE Will Never Be!

  • Covadonga

    Hey, you stinking arselifters, come to a shall issue state and try pulling that crap.

    • IslamDownpressesHumanity

      At which point the demonstration would turn into a shoot-out. Do you seriously believe muslimes don’t carry?

      • Covadonga

        If they are not citizens or have a felony conviction they can’t get a carry permit. They wouldn’t want to draw in public and wind up inside on a weapons violation.

        If they do have a permit, they could still wind up on the inside the criminal justice system (and lose their permits) for drawing in a situation where they are not on the right side of the law.

        But if some mob swarmed a Jewish woman, say, and started beating her, and I drew to disperse them to save her life, any of her attackers who drew second might wind up inside a pine box as an alternative destination.

        Look at Pamela’s list of the cities where this is happening. Res ipso loquitur.

    • iprazhm

      No no no no. They expect the same courtesy they extend to those they disagree with, nothing less than a beheading would do them justice. Thats what Sharia law and the Quran orders and it’s what they demand to live under.
      Personally, I would rather they were all deported back to their countries of origin before they start world war three in our own backyards. .

  • iprazhm

    For thus saith the LORD of hosts; After the glory hath he sent me unto the nations which spoiled you: for he that toucheth you toucheth the apple of his eye. Zechariah 2:8

    Numbers “when Balaam saw that it pleased the Lord to bless Israel” (24:1), he said, “How goodly are thy tents, O Jacob and thy tabernacles, 0 Israel” (24:5); “he shall eat up the nations his enemies” (24:8) and, “Blessed is he that blesses thee; and cursed is he that curses thee” (24:9).

    Further, the Psalmist records: “Let them all be confounded and turned back that hate Zion” (Psalm 129:5) and, “Thou has saved us from our enemies, and has put them to shame that hated us” (Psalm 44:7).

    Isaiah 11:11-13 predicts that “all the adversaries of Judah shall be cut off’ who oppose the restoration of Israel, “in the last days.”

  • iprazhm

    “There were several cops who literally did nothing,” wrote Valdary on her Facebook page after the protest. She also posted videos and photos of the “disturbing” incident, the first of which she has faced in Boston.”

    In almost every protest I’ve seen where muslims, homosexuals, illegal aliens, or pro-abortions get violent and commit a crime such as assault or property damage, police officers called to the scene or worse yet, who actually witness the crimes taking place do nothing!

    They leave me no choice but to believe they are either reprobates, socialists or scared stupid cowards ready to wet themselves. Nothing else explains why they refuse to do their job and enforce the law against these lowlife thugs, but are super cop quick to arrest the innocent and non-violent Christians, Jews, Patriots or any other Conservative.

    • Mike_W20

      Much of our culture these days: education, media, entertainment, etc. is brainwashing people, including cops, in the new secular, humanist, Godless agenda.
      Police are just people, subject to all the crap and brainwashing we are all subjected to every day.
      Satan really is rampant in the world.

      • iprazhm

        I disagree. Police officers, like teachers, like pastors, like congressmen are, and should be held to a higher standard.
        They do not have the luxury of choosing politics over protecting the public.

        • Mike_W20

          Perhaps the police, pastors, judges, etc should be held to a higher standard.
          But who is holding them to a higher standard?
          People like Obama and Holder?
          Nobody.
          The psychopaths and elitists in charge are doing everything possible to create their “brownshirts” to enforce their agenda, so far as I can see.

          • iprazhm

            Ain’t that the truth!

  • Susie

    Jews should do the right thing: take their bankers and politicians and tribesman straight out of America. Filthy.

  • Susie

    Good job Pro-Palestine group. Lots of real Americans are behind you in spirit.
