  • Protesters attempt to block Israeli ship from docking at California port

    http://www.haaretz.com/news/internat...-port-1.297409

    More than 500 pro-Palestinian demonstrators at the Port of Oakland try to delay arrival of Israeli cargo ship.
    Hundreds of pro-Palestinian protesters picketed at the Port of Oakland, in California, on Sunday hoping to delay an Israeli cargo ship from docking, the San Francisco Chronicle reported.

    Police estimated that more than 500 demonstrators gathered early Sunday morning at Berth 58, where a cargo ship operated by the Israeli Zim shipping company was scheduled to dock. The crowd dispersed around 10 a.m. but around 200 protesters returned in the afternoon when a second shift of dockworkers were scheduled to work.

    The demonstration was staged to protest Israel's blockade of the Gaza Strip.

    "Our objective was to boycott this ship for 24 hours, and we succeeded in doing that," said Richard Becker, with the ANSWER Coalition, one of the groups that organized the protest.

    According to Becker, the ship's arrival was delayed from the morning until its eventual arrival around 6 p.m., by which time dockworkers agreed not to show up to unload the vessel, citing concern for their personal safety.

    A representative of the Israeli Consulate in San Francisco disputed Becker's account, saying the ship had always been scheduled to arrive at 6 p.m.

    In the afternoon, two Israel supporters arrived and waved Israeli and American flags across the street from the pro-Palestinian demonstrators.

        Just as God dealt with the heathens and degenerates in Sodom and Gemmora, He will deal with California as well.

            I don't understand how people in America can protest with handkerchiefs pulled up over their faces and hoods over their heads like bank robbers and not get arrested.

              Tried to Boycott Israeli Ship, Blocked Chinese Ship Instead

              Some 500 anti-Israel protestors arrived at the Oakland, California port early Sunday morning, hoping to block an Israeli ship from unloading its cargo. However, the ship did not arrive, and the crowd prevented workers from unloading a Chinese ship instead.

              Seems they have a problem of target identification.

                It is exactly like dressing up as the KKK and going to an area that would designed to create hate and discontent and to be threatening in their hate.
                Psalm 30:11-12 (New King James Version)

                11 You have turned for me my mourning into dancing;
                You have put off my sackcloth and clothed me with gladness,
                12 To the end that my glory may sing praise to You and not be silent.
                O LORD my God, I will give thanks to You forever.

                  Not like bank robbers...they are imitating "terrorists", which is really what they are. Anti-Israel terrorists, and they should be expelled from this country. It's people like this and/or their affiliates that would blow something up, given the chance.

                            Ten years ago the longshoremen would have made fish food out of anyone causing a disruption on their dock. What happened?

                              I hope O sees this

                              and someone puts in bold letters


                              "This is hate speech" "This is an example of who you should be deporting"

                              Where are you O???? (He probably called up the group.....) We are hateful for wanting to enforce our laws and you look the other way at every opportunity to uphold our laws as you took the oath to do......and nothing is done about this hateful group. I am so glad Mrs O is proud to be an American that you both have so much power to undermine this once great nation in the disguise of freedom.......

                              The protesters cover their face because of shame...how is allah going to know who was spewing hate for him?....if they were proud they would let the whole world see their face. Too bad the world can't see anything wrong with their speech or face covering.

                              What I though was funny was the guy exhorting them to send emails and calls(?)....all part of the Israeli's inventions...........
