I was happy to read about the expansion of SF Voice for Israel to San Jose, as grass roots activism is all-important, and Israel advocates don't do enough of it - they are afraid to come out the closet I guess. Jews are always in the front ranks of demonstrations for gay rights, women's rights, African-American rights, labor organization, anti-war demonstrations, Palestinian rights and whathaveyou. When it is a question of Jewish rights, when they must appear in public as Jews to defend Jews, they are a bit reticent.
Here is a bit more about Darlene and Donna Wallach, resident anti-Israelites of San Jose. Evidently they are originally of the Mosaic faith. These Jews are not reticent at all when it comes to dumping on Jewish rights. First, a picture is worth a thousand words.
Aren't they sweet? Doesn't it make you want to sing? Something like this: "She's got a great big scowl. I never cared for a great big scowl, but she's got a great big scowl, and that's my weakness now."
Apparently, they are a traveling anti-Israel circus. They showed up in Fresno, at a Unitarian church, where they announced that Israel is an abomination. Here's the whole story of Donna and Darlene in Fresno. Apparently, even their hosts were embarrassed, and a good time was had by all. Darlene Wallach traveled a bit farther afield it seems, since she was arrested along with other "activists" in a Gaza fishing boat, trying to bring succor to the genocidal Hamas. She got "detained" in Israel:
According to the pro-Palestinian International Solidarity Movement, the foreigners, Andrew Muncie from Scotland, Darlene Wallach from the United States and Vittorio Arrigoni from Italy, are still being held at in Ben Gurion detention facility and are facing deportation.
A delightful pair of females!
