Giant Palestinian Flag Hung from Manhattan Bridge

An enormous Palestinian flag, bearing the words “Boycott, Divest, Sanction,” was unfurled from the south side of the Manhattan Bridge in New York City yesterday evening.

The incident occurred as demonstrators marched across the nearby Brooklyn Bridge to protest Israeli airstrikes against Hamas in Gaza.

The flag hung from the bridge for at least a half hour before it was removed.

    While these people complain about Israel’s response to rocket fire, they should be asked do you condone the execution—murder of the three teenagers????

    This flag only heightens and strengthens the Israeli position that a country needs to be secure and protect its citizens.

    That flag could very well have been a bomb, and thousands could have been killed R”L in addition to destroying a major artery in the city.

    Today it was a flag. What will it be tomorrow?

    And for the Jewish New Year,
    maybe we should start Boycotting Those Companies that Boycott Israel.

    Why isn’t there a boycott of Turkey since Northern Cyprus is more occupied than the West Bank and Gaza, which can be better described as disputed.
