Pro-Hamas ‘Autonomous Zone for Palestine’ Set Up in NYC

Just for the sake of argument, however, let’s take a look at their list of demands. First, they want the “liberation of Palestine.” What is the New York City Council supposed to do about that? Pass a resolution? Next, in a blast from the past, they want the NYPD defunded with its budget being “redistributed” to the “community.” We’ve already seen how defunding works out. They want the police removed from the subways and the buses, which I suppose makes it easier to rob and sexually assault the passengers. They want Mayor Eric Adams to resign. That’s at least more doable at the local level, but it’s hard to see how it moves the ball forward in terms of their other goals. Finally, they want empty buildings in the city to be “used for migrants.” Do any of these people own televisions? Virtually every empty building in New York is already packed with migrants.

Now we will get to see if Mayor Adams and the New York City Council learned anything from the disasters of 2020. When the initial CHOP zone was set up in Seattle, the municipal government and the local police made a disastrous miscalculation. They decided to treat the dangerous illegal activity like a protest and a free speech issue, hoping to reason with them. By the time everyone realized what a horror show it was becoming, it was too late and the protesters and rioters were too firmly entrenched. The situation dragged on seemingly forever.

You are not allowed to seize public lands and block them off from your fellow citizens or ban the presence of law enforcement. Such actions are patently illegal. The people setting up shop in Zuccotti Park should be given one extremely clear and unambiguous warning to tear down their structures and signs and move along. If they fail to do so, the Mayor needs to yank a small army of his officers away from their other duties and send them to the park in force wearing full riot gear. They need to start busting some heads and filling up the police wagons. The city council has already emptied out much of Riker’s Island to appease the liberals, so there should be plenty of room for everyone there. If they allow this “zone” to fester and grow out of control, it will wind up being one more thing turning Gotham into even more of a hellhole than it already is.
