The Occupy protests, which are supported by President Obama and my congressman, the supposedly pro-Israel Congressman Steve Israel (NY-2), tried to take over the Israeli Consulate in Boston yesterday
. If you missed the video
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 liberal Jewish media because they have been reporting that the anti-Israel/anti-Semitic incidents coming from the Occupy protests are few and far between. 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.

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 went to the Israeli consulate building and they don’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.
In the end this is just another example of the anti-Israel sentiment coming out of the Occupy movement. In this case however, the anti-Israel protest can be traced directly back to the Occupy organizers.
I wonder if President Obama and my Congressman, DNCC Chairman Steve Israel still love the Occupy Protests?
