Pro-Gaza activists have dropped a massive Palestinian flag from the Manhattan Bridge in New York City.
They dropped the flag off the side of the bridge after 7 p.m. local time.
The flag says, “Boycott Divestment Sanctions.”
A pro-Palestinian march was taking place at the same time on the nearby Brooklyn Bridge. They claim they had nothing to do with it.
The BDS (Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions) movement was initiated by and is orchestrated by Palestinian activists and militants. It’s an anti-Israel, anti-Semitic global movement that has gained a foothold in some of our leading liberal universities. They like to make the false claim that Israel is an apartheid state.
Last month, someone(s), possibly two German artists, hung white American flags on the Brooklyn Bridge.
Security needs to be beefed up on our NY bridges.
It’s nice to see that Mayor de Blasio doesn’t lose sleep over bridge security.
