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):

  • the girls are shameful to the Woman of the World. Their lack of education on History is insulting to other woman…
    To chant Killings is also an insult to any Religion or anyone who is Humane.

  • 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?

    Filmmaker Eyal Resh Embraces the Challenge of Telling Israel’s Story (VIDEO)

    JNS.org – Telling Israel’s story. It’s the specific title of a short film that Eyal Resh created last year. It’s also the theme behind the 27-year-old Israeli filmmaker’s broader body of work. The widely viewed “Telling Israel’s Story” film—directed by Resh for a gala event hosted by the Times of Israel online news outlet—seemingly begins as a promotional tourism video, but quickly evolves to offer a multilayered perspective. “I want to tell you a story about a special place for me,” a young woman whispers […]

    Israel Geeks Out: Science, Art and Tech Event Embodies Jewish State’s ‘DNA’

    JNS.org – The entrance to Jerusalem’s Sacher Park was transformed from April 25-27 by a fire-breathing robotic dragon, which flailed its arms and attempted to take flight. The robot, a signature feature at Jerusalem’s first-ever “Geek Picnic,” was one of more than 150 scientific amusements available for the public to experience. This particular dragon was designed by students from Moscow’s Art Industrial Institute in conjunction with the Flacon design factory, said Anatasia Shaminer, a student who helped facilitate the display.

    The Syrian Virgin (REVIEW)

    The Syrian Virgin, by Zack Love. CreateSpace, 2015. The Syrian Virgin, by Zack Love, is a very interesting novel. Equally a political and romantic thriller, at times a real page-turner, it gets you intimately involved in the dire situation in today’s Syria, as well as in the romantic entanglements of its mostly New York-based characters — whose entanglements just might determine the fate of that dire situation in Syria. Along the way it introduces a really important idea that somehow […]

    Unpacking the Nagorno-Karabakh Conflict and Its Ripple Effect on Israel’s Region

    JNS.org – Aside from Israel itself, those with a vested interest in the Jewish state are accustomed to tracking developments related to Middle East players such as Iran, Syria, Jordan and Egypt. But much global attention has recently focused on the Caucasus region at the Europe-Asia border, specifically on the suddenly intensified violence between Azerbaijan and Armenia in the mountainous Nagorno-Karabakh area of western Azerbaijan. The Nagorno-Karabakh conflict, while not taking place in Israel’s immediate neighborhood, does have what one scholar called […]

    JNS.org – Sherri Mandell’s life was devastated on May 8, 2001, when her 13-year-old son Koby was murdered by terrorists on the outskirts of the Israeli Jewish community of Tekoa. Yet Mandell not only shares the story of her loss, but also celebrates the lessons she has learned from tragedy. Indeed, “celebrate” is this Israeli-American author’s word choice. Her second book, The Road to Resilience: From Chaos to Celebration (Toby Press), came out earlier this year. The lesson: in every celebration, there is […]
