FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
NEW YORK AND JERUSALEM (March 1, 2012) - A month before the scheduled 'Global March to Jerusalem' (GMJ), CiF Watch has launched a major new website designed to act as a resource for journalists, bloggers, policy makers and members of the law enforcement community seeking to learn more about the individuals and organizations behind the GMJ.
As was the case in previous years, a series of high-profile publicity stunts aimed at undermining Israel's legitimacy are planned for the coming months. The first major event is scheduled to take place on March 30, 2012 and is named 'The Global March to Jerusalem' (GMJ).
The concept behind it is to have a million people marching on Israel’s borders from all the surrounding countries – Lebanon, Syria, Jordan and Egypt – with the aim of reaching Jerusalem. Concurrently, demonstrations are planned in the Palestinian-administrated territories and against Israel's diplomatic missions in major cities throughout the world.
Extensive research into the march's organizers demonstrates that the Global March to Jerusalem is a result of collaboration between far left extremists, Hamas, the Muslim Brotherhood and other Islamist groups, and has the backing of the Iranian government.
"The organizers of this march are undoubtedly aware that no country will permit mass illegal infiltration of its borders, especially by people who identify with terrorist groups and regimes dedicated to its destruction”, stated Hadar Sela, author of two seminal reports on the Global March to Jerusalem, “The results, therefore, are likely to be tragic".
Adam Levick, managing editor of CiF Watch added "It is clear that the organizers and leadership of the Global March to Jerusalem are comprised almost exclusively of terror supporters and extremists who oppose a Jewish state within any borders, and are intent on organizing a potentially violent provocation with the sole aim of eroding Israel’s legitimacy.”
CiF Watch's new website can be accessed at http://gm2j.co/ and will be updated as new information becomes available. Information is also available via Twitter (@gm2jlm) and on our Facebook page.
