What’s Palestine? [All Walls must go says Cory Booker]
August 8, 2018
Is Cory Booker pro Palestine? Just not understand Israel’s need for a defense Wall? Or just fuzzy thinking? His denial does not hold up.
Senator Cory Booker was photographed holding a sign bearing a pro-Palestinian movement slogan. The image appeared on the Twitter feed of the U.S. Campaign for Palestinian Rights, a self-described “coalition of 330+ groups” working “for a US policy toward Palestine/Israel based on freedom, justice, and equality.”
“From Palestine to Mexico, all the walls have got to go,” the sign read.
Booker, however, claims he wasn’t aware that the sign called for an end to the border wall between Israel and the Palestinian territory, but rather only a U.S. border wall with Mexico.
“In one instance, amid the rush, he was posing for a photo and was passed a sign to hold – he didn’t have time to read the sign, and from his cursory glance he thought it was talking about Mexico and didn’t realize it had anything to do with Israel,”
Firenze Sage opines: Do you suppose he [Cory Booker] reads proposed legislation with the same acuity?
Upcoming Vigils at Richmond CA support Open Borders for ALL illegal Immigrants — Is this what CA needs? Go and decide
April 17, 2018
There’s several upcoming vigils at Richmond CA which support Open Borders for ALL Illegal immigrants — is this what CA needs? What the USA needs?
OPEN BORDERS for ALL is vital according to Interfaith Movement for Human Integrity. Really?
How come everyone wants “in” as a refugee to the USA and there’s no rush to leave the USA and be a refugee elsewhere? Why don’t we help people stay where they are and — if they leave — help them get back to their homelands, back to their culture, back to the world they grew up in, know and love?
Are the “welcome the stranger” sermons — frequently preached from many church pulpits — used by the Open Borders crowd? Maybe the persons preaching “welcome the stranger” sermons are the Open Borders crowd.
Here’s some useful info: There’s three upcoming vigils for illegal immigrants detained by ICE at Richmond Detention Center CA. Friday June 8, Sat. July 7 and Sat. August 8. Why not go and you decide.
Why not have a vigil that represents more than one opinion?
Mother Deborah Lee is the Executive Director of Interfaith Movement for Human Integrity. Per reviews of Interfaith literature, this group mobilizes faith communities for immigrant, racial and economic justice.
This post will update regarding info about the vigils…..
