Protest in Teaneck Targets Sacred Jewish ‘Zaka’ Organization


Hundreds of anti-Israel protestors descended on a Teaneck, NJ synagogue on Monday to protest against an event honoring an Israeli emergency response team.

The anti-Israel rally was organized by groups American Muslims for Palestine (AMP) and Within Our Lifetime (WOL).  It was called for 6pm at Congregation Bnai Yeshurun in response to an event featuring Zaka, a volunteer search-and-rescue organization that responds to the scenes of violent terror attacks and organizes burials for victims.

Demonstrators shouted “Free Palestine” and accused Israel of committing “genocide,” as quoted by Arutz Sheva. A large group of counter-protesters met the Hamas sympathizers, calling for the immediate release of hostages held by Hamas. One pro-Israel sign read, “Literally just don’t attack us. It’s easy,” and another stated, “Hate has no home here,” according to the report.

A joint WOL/AMP Instagram post promoting the “Zaka Lies” rally described the sacred Jewish organization as “founded on Zionist ideologies, helped Israel gain public support for their genocide in Gaza. Lies, fake photos, and triggering information was used to manipulate public opinion.”

This is the second time within a 4-week span that anti-Israel protests have broken out in the Garden State. In early March, thousands of protestors targeted Congregation Keter Torah, which was hosting a real estate event for property in Judea and Samaria. It wasn’t a peaceful rally either, with objects and spray paint being directed at counter-protesters, commuters, and pedestrians, according to local reports.
