CODEPINK Calls for Destruction of Israel at AIPAC Policy Conference Protests (VIDEO)

A negligible number of protestors descended upon the Washington D.C.  Convention Center Sunday as the America Israel Public Affairs Committee opened its three day policy conference. A main protest at the front entrance to the facility, hosted by CODEPINK, claimed to be in response to Israel’s policies towards Palestinians and AIPAC’s collusion in implementing said policies.

In an interview with the Jerusalem Post Alli McCracker, the National Director for CODEPINK, was described as someone who “says her organization isn’t anti-Israel but rather generally anti-war – and that freedom for all Palestinians and Israelis is its ultimate goal.” The Jerusalem Post quotes her as saying, “I want to see Israeli policies that don’t actively harm Israel…And we think AIPAC is the primary organization that is promoting these awful policies.”

Yet in a video posted of CODEPINK, a woman with a loudspeaker leads a chorus of chants: “From the river to the sea, Palestine will be free,” a chant that in its very essence would infer the destruction of Israel in its entirety. (One of the speakers at the rally was identified as Jodie Evans, who is described on CODEPINK’s website as the co-founder and co-director of the organization. Note: Algemeiner was unable to independently verify whether or not it was Evans who led this particular chant.)

Here’s the video of the protest organized by CODEPINK in which participants shout for the destruction of Israel ( at 14.00):

  • I agree, Palestine from the river to the sea should be free from Muslims!

  • Elliot J. Stamler

    Code Pink was and is a communist front.

  • Sorry Code Pink females: No amount of Ahava products will help you..Sadly, your very being and mantra are tainted and stained with venenomous vitreol

    Why even bother with them? They are totally and absolutely inconsequential. Do we really need o affirm that there are people who wish to see us go away? We’ve known that for 4,000 years since Avraham Avinu. Maybe it gives solace to American Jews who won’t move to Israel and makes them feel better to have an identifiable enemy close to ‘home’ to point to and therefore by publicising them and speaking against them, they’ll feel better. Trust me: No one here in the Land knows or cares about them. They have no influence and are no danger. Yes, maybe, they’ll turn on some more to be against us. But who really cares and what could they possibly do? Stop being an exile, guilt ridden site.

  • Honouring the “hunger strikers”? How about honouring the victims of suicide bombers everywhere, and those who are traumatised from having witnessed the bombings? My ex-husband, an Auschwitz survivor, witnessed a bus being blown up in front of him in Jerusalem.

  • They must lose their 501(c)(3) status…enough of these charades….we must destroy these immoral people who are just in it for the money….$4M to $6M annually…..spent on whom and what?

    “The women call themselves Code Pink: Women for Peace. But don’t be fooled by all the theatricality of the ladies in pink. Behind the deceptive façade of stagy protests and moral outrage, the women running Code Pink are serious and very radical political activists.
    Established in 1988, it takes in $4 to $6 million annually, much of it by organizing “study tours” to places such as Cuba, Venezuela and Iran.

    As a matter of tax law, the IRS recognizes Code Pink as a project of a small Malibu, Calif.-based 501(c)(3) nonprofit called Environmentalism Through Inspiration & Non Violent Action.”

  • They aren’t known as “CODESTINK” for nothing.

  • Fredric M. London

    Code Pink has me seeing red. Yet another persecuted minority which has no problem with persecuting other minorites.

  • Code pink put out a call for participants to “honor” the Palestinian hunger strikers.

    3pm: Choreographed action. Our plan is to honor the Palestinian political prisoners who are currently on hunger strike by dramatically posing outside the AIPAC conference. We ask that you bring black clothes to wear or change into, and we will be providing black blindfolds, chains (to loosely bind your wrists), and placards with the names of hunger strikers (and the amount of days they’ve been refusing food). At 3:00pm we will assemble everyone along the sidewalk, solemnly kneeling, facing the AIPAC conference during their break time between sessions when thousands of AIPACers will be milling around outside. They won’t be able to miss it. We definitely need photographers and videographers for this!

    The “”hunger strikers” of course, are convicted terrorists and terror supporters and to “honor” them implies a decidedly anti-peace agenda

  • Just for clarification. IF we DO destroy Israel, what do we do with the JEWS? Does Jodie advocate gassing them? Or do we force them into slave labor?

    ‘Tears of Color’ Art Exhibit Shows Struggles of Israelis With Eating Disorders

    JNS.org – “This is how I want to be—without fear. Independent. I want to be like a bird.

The collection represents the first-ever art exhibit of its kind: an exhibit created entirely by Israelis in treatment for eating disorders. Dubbed “Tears of Color,” based on one of the [...]

    Overprotective or Loving? Daughters Reflect on Jewish Mothers in New Anthology

    JNS.org – Rachel Ament noticed that she and her friends often shared humorous anecdotes that were typically variations on a theme: overprotective, worrying Jewish moms who smothered them with love. That included Ament’s own mother. “My mom is probably every Jewish stereotype scrunched into one,” the Washington, DC, resident tells JNS.org. “At the root of all these stereotypical, worrying, overprotective moms, is love.” A social media writer for Capital One, as well as a freelance writer, Ament decided about three years [...]

    ‎Kosher Lust: Love is Not the Answer (REVIEW)

    Kosher Lust, by Shmuley Boteach (Gefen Publishing House, 2014). You really do want to find something positive to say about Shmuley Boteach. He is a phenomenon; very bright, an articulate bundle of energy and self-promotion. Anyone who has the chutzpah to describe himself as “America’s Rabbi” deserves ten out of ten for effort. I believe that along with most Chabad alumni, official and unofficial, he does a lot of good and is a sort of national treasure. In this world [...]

    JNS.org – In a throwback to the golden age of cinema, Hollywood has declared 2014 the “Year of the Bible.” From Ridley Scott’s Exodus starring Christian Bale as Moses, to Russell Crowe playing Noah, Hollywood is gambling on new innovations in technology and star power to revisit some of the most popular stories ever told. “It’s definitely a throwback to the 1950s and early ’60s,” Dr. Stephen J. Whitfield, an American Studies professor at Brandeis University, told JNS.org. Starting with The [...]

Arbus met Carmel, who was billed “The World’s Tallest Man,” at Hubert’s Dime Museum and Flea Circus in 1959 but waited until 1970 to photograph him at his parents’ home in the Bronx, according to the museum. The son of immigrants from Tel Aviv, Carmel posed for Arbus with his head bowed to [...]

    Retreat Gives Young Artists New Platform to Engage With Jewish Ideas

    JNS.org – Many young Jewish artists struggle to define who they are personally, artistically, and religiously. Against the backdrop of that struggle, the recent Asylum Arts International Jewish Artists Retreat provided a space for some 70 young Jewish artists to explore Jewish ideas, to build community and a culture of reciprocity, and to learn skills to assist their career development. “We are trying to encourage and excite people to engage in Jewish themes,” says Rebecca Guber, director of Asylum Arts.

    JNS.org – Has the era of large-scale biblical epics returned? Not since “The Ten Commandments” has there been so much torrential water on the big screen (not counting weather-related disaster films such as “The Impossible”) than in “Noah,” the latest blockbuster from writer and director Darren Aronofsky. “Noah” takes the traditional tale and splices it in an eco-friendly and psychologically driven plot. After Adam and Eve got booted out of the Garden of Eden and after Cain killed Abel, mankind [...]
