Calls to “globalize” a violent intifada against the Jewish state were front and center at a recent demonstration in Brooklyn attended by hundreds of Palestinian supporters, with other chants calling for the demise of the Jewish state and support of Palestinian liberation “by any means necessary.”
Breitbart (h/t Nita) The Saturday demonstration, organized by the radical anti-Israel Within Our Lifetime (WOL), featured large banners calling to “Globalize the intifada,” and declaring Zionism “terrorism.” The protest’s aim was to “honor the martyrs of Palestine” by “globalizing” the intifada, according to the New York-based Palestinian pro-terror group’s site.
“We will never stop fighting for Palestine until ALL of Israeli land ( is liberated from the river to the sea,” the group wrote in its call to protest.
The statement, which is code for eradicating the Jewish state and its millions of Jewish citizens, implies that “Palestine” rests between the Jordan River and the Mediterranean Sea, leaving no room for the current State of Israel.
Protesters held photographs of alleged “martyrs” of Israeli military activity, while some waved Palestinian flags and others blocked traffic and harassed passersby.
Openly demanding a violent uprising against the Jewish state, protesters called to “mobilize the intifada,” while chanting that an “intifada revolution” is the “only solution” to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict.
Palestinians have launched two intifadas against the Jewish state, the second of which took place at the start of the millennium and saw hundreds of terror attacks and thousands of deaths over a four-year span.
In one clip, demonstrators clarified they had no interest in coexistence with a Jewish state, seeking only a Palestinian one in its place.
“We don’t want two states; we want all of it!” went one chant, negating Israel’s right to exist.
Openly chanting to destroy Israel on the streets of America.
Sorry but these people are no different than the neo-Nazis in Charlottesville.

“This call [to globalize the Intifada] is rooted in direct action and driven by the belief that all colonized and oppressed people have the right to take back their land, to realize self-determination, and to win their liberation by any means necessary [emphasis added],” the site reads.
Claiming to “build upon the revolutionary spirit and inspiration of Palestinian resistance,” the site claims that globalizing the intifada stems from the “urgent need” to “break free from the genocidal grip of U.S. imperialism and Zionism.”
“We too must amplify the spirit of Palestine Liberation in the belly of the beast [America] by linking arms with all those who are confronting U.S. and Israeli aggression globally,” it continues. The site also warns those involved in oppressing people within the U.S. and around the world, “your days of comfort are coming to an end.”
On Sunday, Simone Rodan-Benzaquen, the general manager of the American Jewish Committee (AJC) Europe blasted the protest’s violent message.
« Globalize the intifada » « We don’t want two states. We want all of it. »
Their messages couldn’t be any clearer. Unleash violence against the Jews and eradicate the Jewish state.
And all of this in the middle of New York! 🤬 pic.twitter.com/nW4lTw1AC3

WOL is responsible for several previous anti-Israel demonstrations.
Last month, anti-Israel protesters gathered in Brooklyn in an event promoted by WOL to mark American Independence Day by chanting anti-American and anti-Israel slogans and setting both American and Israeli flags aflame as the crowd cheered on the shocking display.
Also last month, during pro-Palestinian Black Lives Matter rallies in New York and Washington, chants were heard calling for “Death to Israel,” “Death to America,” and “From Gaza to Minnesota, globalize the Intifada!” as calls to “abolish the police” were joined with calls to eliminate “the Zionistic state of Israel.”
In June, footage from an anti-Israel demonstration in New York City showed over a thousand demonstrators rallying behind calls for Israel’s demise while advocating a violent uprising and revolution against the Jewish state.
The U.S. has faced a recent outbreak of antisemitic attacks targeting Jews in New York City and other cities across the nation, largely attributed to pro-Palestinian incitement. In New York City alone, hate crimes have reportedly risen by 139 percent in 2021, according to New York City Police Department data released in July.
Brooklyn, July 4th: Next time you hear someone say “Free Palestine,” remember this simple truth: they are terrorist supporters who want to destroy everything our society stands for. #EndJewHatred pic.twitter.com/uN9vYHE1Rc
