Denouncing Anti-Semitism: An Impassioned Speech

January 25, 2015 | by Councilman David Greenfield

“What you saw here today was naked, blind anti-Semitism.”

Last Thursday, Pro-Palestinian activists disrupted a New York City Council meeting to protest Council members’ planned trip to Israel next month. They unfurled a Palestinian flag and began yelling “Palestinian lives matter,” “Don’t support genocide.”

The disruption began as they were concluding a vote on a resolution commemorating the anniversary of the liberation of the Auschwitz concentration camp.

In this powerful video, Councilman David Greenfield delivers an impassioned speech after the protesters were removed. Worth sharing.
