YEGER-OFFICE PROTESTS: Hundreds Drown Out Few Pro-Palestinians; Neturei Karta Joins Anti-Semites [VIDEOS]


With the uproar over New York City Councilman Kalman Yeger’s comments about “Palestine”, well-known anti-Semite Linda Sarsour organized a protest at his offices in Boro Park on Thursday evening. The turnout was very small and protesters considered the event a disappointment.

Meanwhile, Dov Hikind called on the community to come out and support Yeger and denounce Sarsour. Several hundred people gathered on the corner of 16th Ave and 44th Street, though many were just there to observe the event.

Hikind urged the gathering because we can not “allow a troupe of anti-Semites to run over our neighborhood and succeed in pronouncing their hatred unchallenged.”

Approximately one dozen members of Neturei Karta showed up to support Sarsour and the 15 pro-Palestinian protesters that showed up. At least one of the Neturei Karta members was in Iran to attend the notorious Holocaust denial conference a few years ago, as well as other visits where he hugged and kissed former Iranian President Ahmadinejad.

Yeger was not at his office during the protest.

The backlash to Yeger’s comment that “Palestine does not exist” continued Thursday, with chairman of the NYC Council’s immigration committee Carlos Menchaca saying, “I do see a future without him in this immigration committee,” and Council Speaker Corey Johnson said he was “uncomfortable” with having “someone that holds those viewpoints on a committee that’s supposed to welcome all immigrants.”

In response to the criticism, Yeger said, “My point was never about people. My point was about a location. A geographic reality and an international legal reality, a fact. There is no state by that name. There is no place by that name. That’s a fact. I didn’t make it up, I didn’t invent it, that’s official U.S. policy, that’s the policy of many, many nations around the world.”


Neturei Karta was shouted down by the crowd:

Eventually, the NYPD escorted Neturei Karta into a police van and drove them away:

“[Yeger’s] fellow councilmen have the audacity to call for his removal from the city’s Immigration Committee all the while they remain silent as Congresswoman Ilhan Omar spews her antisemitic vitriol week after week,” said former New York State Assemblyman and chairman of the Coalition for a Positive America Dov Hikind.

“Not only will we fight for our councilman and his right to state historical facts without being bullied by a hateful contingency ready to pounce on anything they can twist into a misstep, but we will continue to pursue haters like Omar because they’re the ones who have to go.”

Hikind urges all those who are able to come, to attend the counter-protest so that we do not allow a troupe of antisemites to run over our neighborhood and succeed in pronouncing their hatred unchallenged.

“We must show up in force to defend our local councilman Kalman Yeger who’s being unfairly targeted by an anti-Semite and well-known terrorist supporter”, said Hikind.

Unfortunately, there were some ugly moments as well. In the following video, failed candidate for City Council Heshy Tischler can be heard asking a Muslim woman who attended the protest with her young child if her “daughter doesn’t have any bombs on her, does she?”

As if that weren’t bad enough, Tischler videoed himself and proudly shard the clip to social media.

Many took to social media to condemn Tischler for his disgusting and hurtful comments, and called on him to apologize.

“Thankfully, this man never got close to representing the community as a councilman, nor will he ever get close”, a man named Sholom Berger told YWN.

Hikind later took to twitter to condemn Tischler.

  1. This conversation is stupid and childish. There is no country of Palestine, and that is undeniable fact. There are a bunch of Arabs that wish to take away land from Israel and create their own country, which they will call Palestine. But until that happens, it does not exist. It once did, prior to 1948. But it doesn’t exist today.

    The world has chosen to accept a label for the people who want this, Palestinians. But they never existed as their own group prior to 1948. Even Arafat was not a “Palestinian”, but an Egyptian who wanted to work for the cause.

    Now let’s get truthful and brutal. The “Palestinians” do not want land, their own country, or the name Palestine. They are consumed with hatred that has been imbued into them, and are obsessed with killing Jews. They are bloodthirsty and savage. No matter what has ever been given to them, they fail to take care of their own. “Humanitarian” aid is diverted to conduct acts of war and terror, not feed their civilians. They build bombs, not streets, infrastructure, nor civil life. For all these past decades, Israel conceded a lot to pacify these murderous thugs. They never stopped. They took breaks to re-arm.

    Until they demonstrate the ability to live in peace, they should not be given a grain of sand, nor a square inch of land. Giving them Gaza just made it into a launching pad for weapons. None of this approaches moral value, and none of this should be supported. And when they attack, the retaliation needs to be swift, without warnings, and devastating. Take back land, cut off “humanitarian” aid, and eliminate every one of their leaders. To **** with the UN and its rogue agencies.

  2. What will people in Boro Park do if a contingent of Neturie Karta or Satmar Join LInda Sarsours protest?!? Will the TRAITORSHIP of such activities be CLEAR?!? As they would Proudly show their Chassidic Supporters to their media and Press!

  3. If Politicians May Come to Lindas side at the rally shout out to them if they also feel Congresswoman Omar should be removed from the Foreign Relations Committtee of the US Congress for insinuating supporters of Israel have dual loyalty and that pro Israel congress people are bribed by Jews to be.
    Maybe the politicans can be asked what the borders of this state of Palestine exactly are as the United States does not recognize such a state.

  4. Will someone tell DeBlasio that the Palestinians don’t have a homeland is because their “brothers” in Jordan, Saudi Arabia, etc don’t wan’t them to have one. Same goes for Abbas and Hamas et al. Nothing to do with Israel.
    Actually, Jordan is the Palestinian state but they won’t allow them in.
    Those are the facts Mayor DeBlasio

  5. BenK…. Re: The contingent.

    Oh, it’ll be there in all its shmona begodim.
    It’ll bring along perfect English speakers
    who’ll blab to the world… Make propaganda videos and put them on the Inet with some “rabbi” from Far Rockaway using this as a hate vehicle as some “rabbis” in the past have done.

  6. The Neturie Karta has shown up. Everyone should start asking them how much money they are getting from Iran and their alies. How can they justify Chillel Shabbos to join all Shabbos protests?

  7. Everyone should ask the Neturie Karta why they are collaborating with Iran against Israel and the U.S.? These questions should be picked up by the press and reported.

  8. I think the only one that came out happy from this is “Yanky’s Pizza”! They just got themselves some serious free advertising. Never heard of this place before, but I think I’ll go over and give it a shot. (Maybe I’ll do Cafe Paris soon as well)

  9. Let it be on record. Heshy Tischler is a sick person. He needs to be publicly condemned for his disgusting remarks to a THREE YEAR OLD MUSLIM CHILD.

  10. The so-called Palestinians are Arabs ftom Egypt, Jordan, Lebanon, etc.. The term “palestinian” to refer to them was invented by Arafat, yimach shmo, to get world sympathy for his cause to destroy Israel, chas v’ chalilah.


    We’ve seen them meet, hug, embrace, and kiss the enemies of Israel (Ahmadinejad, Arafat, Farakhan, etc).
    We’ve seen their acts of moral turpitude and we looked the other way and shook our heads in disgust.
    We’ve labeled them ‘crazy’ and we discounted them because we said they were a fringe group.
    We were wrong.

    Cherems are not enough.
    Public statements condemning them are not enough.
    They must be put out of business.

    The time has come to take drastic measures to respond to the Naturei Karta chillul hashem. I have come up with a few ideas and welcome your thoughts.

    1. For each member of NK: get their picture, and complete contact information (name, address, telephone) for public dissemination. Create a “wanted” poster of their identities. People must know who they are and where they live. We can then pressure their respective communities but only if we know who they are. We must know exactly what Chassidic denomination they belong to. If they dare enter our Shuls, we will throw them out. When they come to our communities to speak we will find out where they are staying and who their hosts are and will protest accordingly. When they eat at our Kosher restaurants we will inform the proprietors that we will boycott their establishments unless the NK patrons are asked to leave. We will pressure their Yeshivas to kick their children out of their schools. We will discourage Shidduchim with their families. We will not attend their Simchas and we will tell them why. Again, we must know who they are.

    2. Challenge their IRS tax exempt status. Someone is funding their travel and speaking engagements, and is getting the benefits of a charitable deduction in the process. We need to alert the IRS of NK’s terrorist affiliations jeopardize their tax exempt status. This will chill charitable donations to their cause. Let’s bankrupt them and put them out of business.

    3. Lobby our political leaders to have them demand that the United States State Department brand the NK organization (and its members) as a terrorist organization or as a supporter of terrorism and render it illegal (like the State Department did to JDL/KACH).

    4. Publish all of the Cherems that are out against NK. The Chief Rabbi of Israel has called for a new Cherem against NK. The Edah Hachareidis just published one. See the one I’ve published below*.

    5. Encourage our Rabbonim and Jewish leaders to stop disregarding them as insignificant. Acknowledge that they are dangerous. Discredit them.

    6. Collect pictures of them posing with Arab leaders and place them on one screen for everyone to see their atrocious bedfellows: ie., Farakhan, Arafat, Ahmadinejad, and their horrific protest placards. The more pictures, the more horrific the outrage.

    7. Prosecute NK in the International Criminal Courts. Follow my logic here: If Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad’s stated objective of “wiping Israel off the map” (his consistent denial of the Holocaust, and his country’s pursuit of nuclear and ballistic missile capacity) violates the 1948 U.N. Convention on the Prevention and Punishment of the Crime of Genocide, then wouldn’t NK be guilty of aiding and abetting the enemy (Iran’s Ahmadinejad)? I’m not an expert in this area of law, but what about treason (the crime of disloyalty to one’s nation or state. A person who betrays the nation of their citizenship and/or reneges on an oath of loyalty and in some way willfully cooperates with an enemy, is considered to be a traitor. Oran’s Dictionary of the Law (1983) defines treason as: “…[a]…citizen’s actions to help a foreign government overthrow, make war against, or seriously injure the [parent nation].” In many nations, it is also often considered treason to attempt or conspire to overthrow the government, even if no foreign country is aided or involved by such an endeavour)?

    I welcome your thoughts.

    Angry Response to Neturei Karta Prayers for Arafat
    07:51 Nov-12-04 / 28 Cheshvan 5765

    Angry Response to Neturei Karta Prayers for Arafat ( The following media statement was released on Nov 8 in an angry response to Neturei Karta participation in prayers outside the Percy Hospital in France on behalf of Yasser Arafat. The statement released by the United Orthodox Communities of New York which represents a very broad-based Jewish community, which is listed following the statement.

    “Further to our public announcement dated 21 April 2002 [9th Iyar 5762], we hereby reiterate and declare that hareidi/hassidic/Orthodox Jews everywhere absolutely reject the treacherous and contemptible conduct of that insignificant and irrelevant group of misfits and Mechalelei Hashem [desecraters of G-d’s Name], who have again raised their ugly heads and besmirched and blackened the reputations of observant Jews worldwide.

    ““Their joining in vigils and ‘prayers’ for the arch-terrorist Yasser Arafat [may his name be blotted out] with Jew-haters of all manner, is an outrage that we cannot ignore and will not forgive. We again demand that rabbis and community leaders of all communities ensure that members of this group are refused entré to all houses of prayer.

    ““These nefarious associates of Jewry’s enemies have unfortunately again succeeded in their crazed hunger for publicity and are being depicted in local and international media – outfitted in their religious attire –– bewailing the impending demise of a mass-murderer –– side-by-side with Palestinian Jew-haters. The shame and embarrassment to decent religious Jews worldwide is unbearable.

    ““We repeat: this contemptible and minuscule gang of traitors to Judaism, were decades ago barred from our Synagogues and communities. Their refusal to abide by the pronouncements of religious and lay leaders of our communities has made them persona non grata.

    ““Under no circumstances should the media insinuate that ANY of their actions are associated with the hareidi or hassidic community.

    ““We urgently request all media outlets to highlight this fact in any report on this group’s actions and to clearly state that the Neturei Karta and their advocates have been excommunicated by virtually the entire spectrum of Jewry””.

  13. Mommy,
    You ‘re absolutely right. They also came from Iraq, Saudi Arabia and Syria. And they came when Jewish state was imminent which they believed would be an economic boon for them. It was the murderous mufti Husseini who agitated against the Jews and murdered his moderate rivals. “Palestinian” was actually coined by Arafat’s predecesor , the founder of the PLO, Ahmed Shukeiri.

  14. 🇺🇸🇮🇱🇺🇸🇮🇱🇺🇸🇮🇱🇺🇸🇮🇱🇺🇸🇮🇱🇺🇸🇮🇱🇺🇸🇮🇱🇺🇸🇮🇱🇺🇸🇮🇱🇺🇸🇮🇱🇺🇸🇮🇱🇺🇸🇮🇱🇺🇸🇮🇱🇺🇸🇮🇱🇺🇸🇮🇱🇺🇸🇮🇱🇺🇸🇮🇱🇺🇸🇮🇱🇺🇸🇮🇱🇺🇸🇮🇱🇺🇸🇮🇱🇺🇸🇮🇱🇺🇸🇮🇱🇺🇸🇮🇱🇺🇸🇮🇱🇺🇸🇮🇱🇺🇸🇮🇱🇺🇸🇮🇱🇺🇸🇮🇱🇺🇸🇮🇱🇺🇸🇮🇱🇺🇸🇮🇱🇺🇸🇮🇱🇺🇸🇮🇱🇺🇸🇮🇱🇺🇸🇮🇱🇺🇸🇮🇱🇺🇸🇮🇱🇺🇸🇮🇱🇺🇸🇮🇱🇺🇸🇮🇱🇺🇸🇮🇱

  15. perfect now everyone sees the neturei karta reshaim funded by the Zali faction of satmar
    dont ever give a penny to them
    sick people

  16. Can’t wait for all our Jew Haters(aka niturei karte jerks) to come and defend the killings of Jews “just because “!!!!!!!

    Kalman Yager, keep up your good work for the community!!!

  17. Many Muslims and Orthodox Jews live in close proximity to each other in Brooklyn. Boruch Hashem these communities have gotten along peacefully for decades. The rhethoric of Sarsour, Hikind, Tischler and Yeger only serve to heighten tensions and create anger and rage. The acts and words of these people are reckless. Using twitter to stoke rage may be a tool that the president uses at his whim but it is not something that responsible political and community leaders should engage in.

  18. Omar didn’t specifically say Jews have dual loyality and Yeger didn’t refer to the people but to the land. Excuses can be made for every comment that one wants to make excuses for but politicians should no better than stoking anger and fear.

  19. Messages on WhatsApp threatening YWN for rightfully blasting Tischler.

    They are being told to contact YWN with the following message “TAKE DOWN THE VIDEO OF TISHLER BEFORE THE MEDIA GETS IT!!! WHAT KINDA SICK TWISTED NUT ARE YOU POSTING THAT??????”

    Here are the list of Tischler cronies that are jumping on the bandwagon to harass YWN:


  20. Bsd

    Yasher Koach for turnout! They were BH outnumbered! Had all the Chassidim sung and danced they would have also been outshouted 🙂

    Re Tischler: The sad reality is that some sick Palestinians like Palestinians of ancient times are Makriv their children to the Molech. Jihad is glorified and Palestinian
    mothers often are proud and encourage and glorify shaheedism in their children. Yes they are sick. It is a sick culture but look into their education in UNRWA schools and research after whom they choose to name their schools. You guessed it Named after terrorists. Shaheeds. They often use children as human shields. They send their rockets from schools and hospitals, from populated areas..populated with kids. Very sick! Yes. Very sick society.

  21. What Tischler said was rude, biut who can deny that Arab terrorists have been known to put bombs on children, or that they wouldn’t hesitate to do it again?

  22. THE BACH: “Prosecute NK in the International Criminal Courts” What court/s are you referring to? Do you mean the International Criminal Court? America and Israel are not signatory to the ICC and it has no authority over citizens of the US or Israel. The first amendment protects freedom of expression. People can say what they want no matter how wrong and distasteful it is. Unless NK is sending money or weapons to terrorist organizations – which they aren’t – there is no crime being committed. Best advice ignore them and be happy that we live in a democracy where people have the freedom to speak their minds.

  23. What needs to happen is to challenge NK to a public debate about how orthodox Jews should deal with Zionism. Conditional that whoever looses will concede and close shop.

    For the record. NK follow warmer hashkofos, which I as good old litvak even partially agree with!

    It is the way NK go about it (eg fraternising with the enemy) that is so wrong, causes such a Chillul HaShem and even has Satmer hanging their heads in shame!

  24. All this rally did was give NK a media platform (several of the major news satellite trucks were there) to show Orthodox Jewish opposition to the State of Israel. Nothing else was accomplished. If it had been ignored all there would be were seven lonely Palestinians and no one else noticing. Hikind made it into a major affair by bringing his crowd (and then attracting even more local BP onlookers) which attracted the media (by Hikind’s tweets calling for the rally) and the NK.

    Thank You Dov.

  25. @joseph: Most of us already know that you are not the sharpest tool in the shed, however, if all you noticed about this event is “handful of kipa sruga types shouting Zionist slogans”, then its just proof that you are the absolute dullest tool.
    All the anti-semitism going on, and you see “kipa sruga”. You are, in the harshest term, a CHOSID SHOITEH!

  26. Joseph, UJM, Grand Wizard of the Neturei Karta,

    The average Borough Parker is not on your side. You are part of the radical fringe and the rest of the community has already disowned, disavowed and distanced itself from you and your ilk (roughly 15-20 people).

    Go kiss Khameini if you feel so strongly about it, what are you even doing here?

  27. Mommy10; all the cool kids are pretending to be from “palestine”, even though most of them haven’t even been near the area of the British Mandate.
    This is interesting though. All around the world these bigots stage their marches freely and with no pushback. It gives them the sense of the world being on their side. Maybe if the tables were turned…

  28. I have to agree with Milhouse. The topic of the demonstration was specifically Palestinians and not related to other Muslims in general. To quote Wikipedia:

    > According to the Palestinian Human Rights Monitoring Group, in the al-Aqsa Intifada, children were used as “messengers and couriers, and in some cases as fighters and suicide bombers in attacks on Israeli soldiers and civilians” during the al-Aqsa Intifada. Fatah, Hamas, Palestinian Islamic Jihad Movement and the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine have all been implicated in involving children in this way.

    > From May 2001, … more than 40 youths under the age of 18 were involved in attempted suicide bombings

    > On March 24, 2004, one week after capturing a bomb in the bag of 12-year-old Abdullah Quran …
