When people show you who they really are, it is probably a good idea to believe them.
The mask that has been hiding antisemitism has been ripped off for the world to see… and what’s underneath is pretty ugly.
New York, the place known for its large, thriving Jewish community also appears to have a pretty significant problem with antisemitism.
A pro-Palestinian group called “Within Our Lifetime” has posted maps of businesses to target for their “calls to action.”
They’ve organized protests on college campuses, in Washington D.C., and in the streets of New York in order to “globalize intifada.”
A pro-Palestinian activist group shared a frightening map of New York City newsrooms, businesses and landmark buildings — and called for “direct action” to “globalize intifada.”
In addition to news buildings, Within Our Lifetime, which describes itself as a Palestinian-led community organization, called for followers to target the offices of technology companies
“Each of the locations on this map reflects the location of an office of an enemy of both the Palestinian people and colonized people all over the world. Today and beyond, these locations will be sites for popular mobilization in defense of our people,” the sickening Wednesday night post read.
“May this map serve as a call for every struggle to act in their own interest. As we do so, we uplift one another’s struggles and free Palestine from the river to the sea,” it continued, repeating the Palestine Liberation Organization mantra adopted by Hamas that calls for the eradication of Israel.

The NYPost published the now-deleted images but blurred out the details.
The maps have received wide condemnation from New York’s Jewish community and local politicians.
Bronx Congressman Ritchie Torres (D-NY) cited the map in an X post warning that “coded calls for violence against Jews are proliferating on social media.”
A social media account posted the following headline: “Globalize the Intifada: Zone of Operations.”
It features a NYC map of largely Jewish organizations to target. It describes Jewish orgs as “the enemy of colonized people.” It calls October 7th “a new chapter of struggle.”… pic.twitter.com/U42jy44Xx7

“As Mayor Adams has said repeatedly, hate has no place in our city,” said a spokesperson from New York City Hall. “We are continually monitoring multiple channels to identify any potential threats to New York City. The NYPD is aware of a social media post urging ‘direct action’ towards several institutions in the city and is deploying resources to protect public safety at these locations. But to be clear, threatening businesses and organizations and referring to them as the ‘enemy’ is exactly the kind of hateful rhetoric that seeks to divide New Yorkers, but it won’t work, because we are better than that.”
“This is clear incitement against a group of predominantly Jewish institutions, based on the trope that they are ‘enemies’ of ‘colonized people all over the world,’” said Manhattan Borough President Mark Levine, a Democrat.
In his statement to the NYPost, he added, “I reject this hateful language and am grateful that the NYPD is taking this threat seriously.”
The Executive vice president of the NY Board of Rabbis, Rabbi Joseph Potasnik, said that the map is “a message that glorifies physical attacks against Jews.”
“Intifadas are targeted attacks on Jews. The hatred of the heart leads to hatred of the hands,” he told the NYPost.
That would be these charming people who want to “celebrate the Palestinian martyrs” and endorse “resistance by any means necessary” of the “Israeli occupation and genocide” of Palestinians if their signs are to be believed.
Note the strikethrough of the name “Columbus” — they’re appealing to the woke, neo-Marxist activists who want to erase all references to anyone who they feel has contributed to colonialism and, therefore, the genocide of marginalized/indigenous/oppressed people groups that they define mostly as black, brown, and within the ever-expanding Alphabet community.
They probably see this support of the New Current Thing™ as being on the “right side of history” and all, but there’s just one tiny problem…
One of the organizations that “Within Our Lifetime” cites as support is Samidoun.
What is Samidoun? Glad you asked.
Samidoun is an arm of the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine, according to the Israeli government.
An Israeli-designated terrorist group banned by the German government is part of an American dark money network funded by progressive billionaires, including George Soros.
Samidoun, which has organized dozens of anti-Israel protests since Hamas’s October attacks, is a subsidiary of the Alliance for Global Justice, records show…
…Arabella Advisors, the left’s premiere dark money network, has also distanced itself from Samidoun, telling the Free Beacon it “unequivocally condemn[s] terrorism and violence against civilians,” and noting that “Samidoun is not and has never been a client of Arabella Advisors.”
But two of Arabella’s clients—whose operations, the Free Beacon reported, are closely guided by the firm—transferred more than $1 million to the Alliance for Global Justice in 2022, tax records show.
It is unclear when the Alliance for Global Justice absorbed Samidoun or which donors are earmarking funds for Samidoun. The Alliance for Global Justice had more than $6.2 million in assets and spent more than $54 million in 2021, the last year its public tax filings are available.

Much like making Osama bin Laden their new pin-up boy, it looks like the Left is funding terrorists through their Dark Money groups. Oh dear!
That article on Samidoun and Alliance for Global Justice triggered the memory of an article from February in the Washington Examiner about the AFGJ pocketing over a quarter of a million dollars in taxpayer-funded COVID-19 cash.
Alliance for Global Justice was hit with an IRS complaint in January because it fundraised for a French group called Collectif Palestine Vaincra that partners with the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine, a U.S.-designated terror organization. The federal government handed this same controversial Arizona group over $254,000 in May 2020 as part of the Paycheck Protection Program and forgave the loan in November 2021, according to public loan data.

So, not only is the group making maps and posting them on social media for any nutter to see with explicit calls to action while carrying banners saying, “by any means necessary”, they’re also wrapping their message in the woke language of “anti-colonialism” and they’re tied to a network that funds Palestinian terrorists and that same parent organization stole PPP money that was then forgiven by the Biden administration.
You just can’t make up how absolutely absurd this all is.
