Michael Rabb calls for protests of Jews at Worship on their Holy day

Anti-Israel activist Michael Rabb has called upon the community to protest Jews worshipping at Synagogue on their holy Sabbath. Its not anti-Semetic. Its anti-israel. He writes: Ask Jews and all Americans to renounce their support for Israel: stand vigil in front of Congregation Bonai Shalom, 1527 Cherryvale Road in Boulder, Saturday, Nov. 17, 9:30 a.m. Ethnic cleansing of Palestine is a crime against humanity that was conceived and perpetrated as part of the Zionist project to create the Jewish state of Israel. As a result of ethnic cleansing, most of the indigenous population of Palestine has been expelled. They, or their descendants, now live as refugees or exiles in foreign countries. About 750,000 Palestinians were expelled from their native land in 1948. These expulsions were done by Zionist armies using terror, home destruction, starvation, fear inducing propaganda and threats of death. Over 500 Palestinian villages were ethnically cleansed and destroyed by Zionist armed forces at that time. In defiance of UN resolutions, none of these Palestinian refugees were allowed to return. Another wave of ethnic cleansing occurred after the 1967 war when several hundred thousand residents of the West Bank were pushed into Lebanon, Jordan and Syria. And these crimes are not past tense. The ethnic cleansing of the indigenous population of Palestine continues today! State ownership of more than 90 percent of all the land in Israel is explicitly instituted to privilege Jews and bar Palestinians from living in Israel. Israel continues to demolish Palestinian homes, confiscate Palestinian property and build Jewish-only settlements on Palestinian land. Ongoing Israeli colonization and the oppressive matrix of control of the West Bank, East Jerusalem and Gaza are designed and administered to push Palestinians off their land and out of their country. Of course, Israel continues to deny the basic human right of return to millions of Palestinian refugees. Israel's on-going crimes are enabled by American policy and foreign aid. But American policy and support for Israel happens by and through the organized support of American Jewry. American Jews fund and power the Israel lobby -- AIPAC and an array of political action organizations. Synagogues across the country are in fact, integrated into the support of the Israel lobby. It is not just coincidence that Congregation Bonai Shalom flies the foreign flag of Israel in its sanctuary. So it is important to confront the seat of this political power: the American Jewish Diaspora. Ask Jews and all Americans to renounce their support for Israel: join me in vigil in front of Congregation Bonai Shalom, in Boulder, Saturday, Nov. 17, 9:30 a.m. MICHAEL RABB Boulder
