And again, whats a San Francisco hate-fest without gratuitous flag-burning?
As the Jewish community gathered in strength and in unity, mourning our dead and praying for peace, members of the fringe group, Jewish voice for Peace became dismayed by their own irrelevance and invisibility and plotted their revenge.
From an anonymous commenter:
"They strategically positioned themselves in different parts of the large sanctuary and disrupted the speeches and prayers six times, screaming unintelligibly and spitting out ugly accusations at more or less equal intervals, one person at a time, which appeared well orchestrated. They did it, despite the repeated reminders about the sacred nature of the environment, until each one was escorted outside. It was extremely upsetting and some children in the audience looked scared and visibly shaken."
Any group that would interrupt a community at prayer, any group that would deliberately frighten children, and destroy the sanctity of a sacred space deserves ostracism from the mainstream. It is tactics such as these that have made the humorless, self-indulgent activists of JVP an object of scorn and ridicule from coast to coast
This isn't the first time anti-Israel provocateurs disrupted a Jewish community event. Just a few years ago, Brian Malovany, Ralp Cohen, Harris Kornstein, Daniel Bassichis, Lacey Johnson, Deborah Schneider, Micah Bazant, Sara Kershnar, Micheline Levy, Margot Goldstein, Perry Bellow-Handelman, Barbara Lubin, Amy Schoenwald, Meredith fenton, Stephen leeds, Amy Fornari, Marriana Vitturro, Jaron browne, Deborah Agre and Ruth Coltharb were all arrested for disrupting a Jewish communal celebration. at the San Francisco JCC. For her role in terrifying children, and interrupting communal study, Amy Fornari (now going by Ari Lev Fornari) was granted a place on JVP "Rabbinical" Council.
San Francisco anti-Israel activity. Still ugly after all these years.
