The Occupy protests, supported by President Obama and my congressman, the supposedly pro-Israel Congressman Rep. Steve Israel (D-NY) (NY-2), tried to take over the Israeli Consulate in Boston over the weekend. If you missed it, it’s because the incident wasn’t covered by the mainstream media.
The attempted attack on the consulate should be a big surprise to people who read the mainstream media as they have been reporting the anti-Israel/anti-Semitic incidents coming from the Occupy protests were the product of a few lone-wolf nuts. This particular anti-Israel event wasn’t a fringe group or a lone nut: it was an officially sanctioned Occupy Boston event.
Thankfully they didn’t get into the consulate – only the building’s lobby, but even if they got to the embassy there would have been no one there because these Occupy “friends of the Jewish Community” forgot that Consulates of the Jewish State are closed on the Jewish Sabbath.
One of the Protesters, Kade Ellis explained what they were doing–via her twitter feed.

According to the “No Cure For That” website the reason for the attempted attack on the consulate was:
A flotilla with as many as a dozen activists — including Code Pink’s Kit Kittredge- was bound to Gaza bearing humanitarian aide on November 4th. The Israeli military boarded seized the ship, and took all of the activists into custody.Occupy Boston then marched on the Israeli Consulate in solidarity.

Before the Occupy Boston protesters begin to say that it was small splinter group that doesn’t represent all of Occupy Boston, take a look at this screen shot from the Occupy Boston webpage showing the Israeli Consulate even was an officially sanctioned event:
Below is a blow-up of the circled area:
The attempted take over of the Israeli Consulate by Occupy is another example of the anti-Israel sentiment coming out of the Occupy movement, a movement whose leaders have a long history of anti-Semitic and anti-Israel activism. But the liberal media continues to condone the hatred using the excuse “its only a few crazies.”
If this incident was only the work of a few crazies, why was it on the Occupy Boston’s calendar of scheduled events? It is obvious that the attempted takeover was a fully sanctioned Occupy Boston event. Based on the liberal media’s history, if they ever bother to report on this attack on the Israeli Consulate they will ignore the evidence and try to explain it away as being perpetrated only by “a few nuts.”
I wonder if President Obama and my Congressman, DNCC Chairman Steve Israel still love the Occupy Protests? I have tweeted them and asked and will let you know when hell freezes over I get a response.
