Here is the J's Mealy-Mouthed Take On The Assault

Read it and weep.

BTW, as a life-long human-rights activist, the Balabusta cannot but fail to be amused by JVP's wild endorsement of themselves for disrupting Netanyahu's speech in New Orleans. They unfurled a banner, yelled a slogan, and were kicked out by security. I've done that. I was doing that when I wasn't yet a bat mitzvah. Big whoop.

The kind of bravery you'd expect people who beat up middle-aged ladies to congratulate themselves on.

Oh, Gee whiz: The folks at JVP are proudly using their disruption of Netanyahu for a fundraising appeal. If the pro-Israel activists
who organized this event thought they could teach JVP a lesson, they clearly under-estimated the ego and the narcissim of the JVP

Their appeal follows:
“The last few weeks - months, really - have been incredible, challenging, exciting and daunting for Jewish Voice for Peace….

The biggest news continues to be what happened in New Orleans last week and since. As you may already know, our Young, Jewish, and Proud leaders made headlines around the world when they disrupted Israel Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s speech at the country’s largest gathering of Jewish leaders ...

We knew that this action would be big, but the attention our young leaders and Jewish Voice for Peace have garnered has been overwhelming. We have struck a nerve among Jews everywhere and among people who care about human rights. Many who tried their best to ignore JVP before are paying attention now - and that attention brings unique challenges to our lean organization. You can help (and I hope you will) by signing our letter of support for our young leaders and/or by making a donation “

Clueless. Arrogant. Irresponsible, but mainly just clueless.
