Controlled Opposition Sadly Alive and Well

Two members of Jewish Witnesses for Peace and Friends ventured to Washington, DC for a “massive” (read: 500 people) protest of the AIPAC meeting there on Sunday, March 20. Organized by Al-Awda and the ANSWER Coalition, we understood going in that Jewish Power was a topic not to be brought up. Neither group has ever encouraged discussion of this vital subject.

In an attempt to ensure the topic would receive at least some coverage, we carried a sign reminding viewers of the truly massive power of the Jewish Lobby after the Jewish state launched a devastating and one-sided assault on the people of Gaza in 2014. Our sign read “Jews Control US Senate – Unanimous Vote – July 17, 2014”.

Jew Control Senate - sm

Listen to a finger-wagging Jewish commissar laying down the rules on YouTube: “You’re doing the work of the Zionists, aren’t you? Is that what your sign’s about? All Jews control …? I’m Jewish. I’m here. (to others): I mean ‘Jews control’? The ‘Zionists’, that’s different”. (To me): “Don’t conflate the two. The Nazis do, and the Zionists do, and you’re either working for one or the other.”

The Arab controllers followed suit. They snapped over 300 photographs of the event and posted them on Facebook, but in spite of being quite visible at the two-hour protest, the signs we carried didn’t make it out of the editing room.

More Controlled Opposition

The JWPF contingent also attended the “Israel’s Influence: Good or Bad for America?” conference two days prior at the National Press Club. And in spite of the fact that the crimes against Palestine are being committed by a Jewish state with Jewish soldiers using weapons displaying Jewish religious symbols, and with the full support and complicity of the overwhelming mass of organized Jews worldwide*, none of the speakers dared to hold Jews responsible.

This conference failed the transparency test immediately: there were no remote microphones to take unfiltered questions from the audience. Questions written on 3 by 5 cards from this author never made it to the panel. My personal best guess for this change in format came from an event that happened two years ago at this same conference. A woman from the audience had the audacity to question Holocaust education in the US at taxpayers’ expense. For a classic example of Jewish Power censorship see Justin Raimondo and Philip Weiss putting the clamps on this lady’s question here.
