Meet Jung’s Anti-Semitic Support Network

sjjung_tl_2014_05_16_q_filesantucci_z

This is why we have to be mindful of a candidate beyond the palm cards. Beware of S. J Jung.

Did you ever wonder who’s really behind a campaign?

Campaigns hire the seediest people. Yes, seedy. Really seedy. In fact, whether their advice comes from convicts or consulting firms that blur the line between Super PACs and direct campaigning, some of these “consulting” characters really take the cake. Take for instance, Peter Brown, the chief advisor to S.J Jung, a candidate running for State Senate in Queens, who’s been working to prove that US government agents were responsible for the destruction of 7 World Trade Center.

The BrownMiller Group, of which Peter Brown is a founding partner, led the effort to collect more than 53,000 signatures on petitions to force a city referendum requiring a new investigation into the collapse of the World Trade Center. But why?

The purpose of this referendum is to prove that US government agents, not Al Qaeda, was responsible for the destruction of 7 World Trade Center.

Now this guy is a major player on Jung’s payroll. As such, when announcing his candidacy, Jung bragged to the World Journal that the BrownMiller Group had joined his team and even told Korea Daily that Brown was advising Jung on political strategy. Oh, here we go.

But the devil is in the details, so follow the link. Although dubbed the “Highrise Safety Initiative,” the effort was funded by an organization called the NYC Coalition for Accountability Now (NYC CAN).

According to NYS Board of Elections records, NYC CAN paid the BrownMiller Group $183,563 in five separate installments.

Ted Walters, NYC CAN’s Executive Director, said the ballot initiative was a way for conspiracy theories about the destruction of the World Trade Center to be “mainstreamed.” According to Walters, there “was a deliberate attempt on the part of FBI leadership to block” individuals “from finding out about the plot and preventing it.“ He also claimed “people in the government knew (about the attacks) and allowed it to happen…The collapse of the Twin Towers and Building 7 were all demolitions…The alleged hijackers did not have the expertise to pilot the planes.” Yea, right.

NYC CAN is supported by Anti-Semites & Anti-Israel Bigots. But it’s not Walters’ crazy claims which should alarm you, BrownMiller has networked with an anti-Semitic coalition to further CAN’s radical agenda. Walters personally promoted the referendum on a podcast hosted by an Anti-Israel conspiracy theorist who claimed Israeli rescue workers were stealing organs after the Haitian earthquake. In addition, a variety of anti-Semitic websites, including the Iranian state-owned news service, promoted donations to and support for NYC CAN’s referendum, where it was described as “the most important group working to change history” and prove that Israeli agents were responsible for the 9/11 attacks.

The referendum was heavily promoted on anti-Semitic, anti-Israel, and conspiracy websites and news outlets that claim that Israel was behind 9/11. In other words, the strategist leading Jung’s candidacy is also working on a project that is helping to unite an anti-Semitic movement behind a crazy ballot referendum in New York.

Even though NYC CAN believes 9/11 was conducted by US Agents, none of this however stopped Jung from paying BrownMiller, and it likely won’t.

This begs the question, is it possible for the CAN coalition to lobby Jung through the BrownMiller Group? Or even directly to him? What would stop them? After all, there is a clear path to access. Will the ballot initiative sail through with a special legislative liaison advocating on its behalf, now or later? Of course it’s all possible. When a candidate is elected, they take all of their interests, their supporter’s interests, and especially their baggage with them into office. Why would Jung prove any different?

Meanwhile, The Anti-Defamation League called Jones “the Conspiracy King” and referred to him as “anti-Israel conspiracy theorist” in 2010 after his website promoted the claim that Israeli rescue workers in Haiti were involved in stealing organs.

Luckily, de Blasio thinks it’s all a joke, and for good reason. He said the NYC CAN ballot proposal was “absolutely ridiculous… And it’s inappropriate, after all the suffering that went on 9/11 and since. It seems to be this is a very insensitive and inappropriate action.”

This is dangerous. Still, the BrownMillerGroup has influence over Jung, and they always will. The question becomes how much influence does CAN have directly on Jung? [See the dotted line on the diagram to illustrate the point]. Is this a chance you’re willing to take? Don’t fret, there is a bright side: this potential influence won’t amount anything if Jung loses the election and moves back to New Jersey. But my oh my, wouldn’t it be nice to have a dear friend in office, a friend with legislative authority and a budget?

The district where Jung is running contains one of the fastest growing Jewish communities in New York City, along with the Kupferberg Holocaust Resource Center and approximately 20 synagogues. The district is also home to many police officers, firefighters, EMTs, and construction workers who responded to the disaster and helped in the recovery. Overall more than 250 Queens residents died on 9/11.

So think twice about casting your ballot for SJ Jung, things are not what they appear to be.

Lancman discusses ‘Worldwide Campaign against Israel’

The question of a new anti-Semitism and its relationship to the Israel delegitimization movement will be the subject of a forum at the St. John’s University School of Law in New York, co-hosted by Assemblyman Lancman, the Israeli consulate in New York, the Jewish Community Relations Council of New York, and the Kupferberg Holocaust Resource Center & Archives on Tuesday, November 15 at 6:30 p.m. eastern time

Assembly Member Rory Lancman’s op-ed  article discusses antisemitism across the world.

A little background: on Monday, swastikas were painted on two public libraries and a synagogue in Elmhurst. Lancman writes the article with this demonstration of hate fresh on his mind. Communities are outraged.

In the op-ed, he discusses antisemitism on a global level.

Anti-Semitism and anti-Israel advocacy

How much of the rising crescendo of worldwide criticism aimed at Israel reflects anti-Semitism? Perhaps not the traditional anti-Semitism of blood libels, global conspiracies and crude personal slurs about greed and dishonest dealings, but anti-Semitism manifested in a new way, with Israel now acting in the role of the despised Jew of old? The question comes at a critical time for both America and Israel. Both countries are being forced to make difficult choices in the months and years ahead on such profound issues as Palestinian statehood and Iran’s nuclear program, in an atmosphere where these choices are framed less by their intrinsic merits than by the metastasizing external, political and economic pressure being applied by anti-Israel advocates.

But if that advocacy is rooted in anti-Semitism—and is exposed as such—then much of its political and economic pressure is stripped of any veneer of legitimacy and drained of its power.

Anti-Israel advocacy has reached extraordinary proportions in both its breadth and zeal, aimed squarely at delegitimizing the Jewish state and denying it the rights, protections and privileges accorded to other nations. There are simultaneous worldwide lawfare and boycott, divestment and sanctions (BDS) campaigns being waged to handcuff Israel’s right to defend itself against terrorism, suffocate the country’s economy, deny its citizens free movement and, fundamentally, to offer justification for those who attack Jews and Jewish property.
