Report: Confrontation at Drumthwacket

Here’s a report from Fight Back Better: “During Lunar New Year celebrations at the Governor’s Mansion in Princeton, Asian American activists confronted New Jersey Governor Phil Murphy on disbanding the New Jersey-Israeli State Commission. The Commission’s goal includes strengthening economic ties between NJ and Israel and is responsible for $1.72 Billion USD in bilateral trade.

“Activists confronted First Lady Tammy Murphy, who is campaigning for U.S. Senate this fall and has evaded ceasefire calls for months as Gazan death tolls have skyrocketed. Not shown in the video, but Tammy Murphy attempted to grab the phones off of one of the activists who was recording the confrontation.”

  1. Journalists should report on the issues regarding Israel, Gaza, Hamas, including the brutal images, political pressures and beliefs and actions related to this painful, horrific and dangerous part of the world. But this linked video, recording the disruption of an infantile & narcissistic individual seeking attention, reduces the true and agonizing needs & experiences of two Peoples to a Tik Tok.

  2. Shameful that NJ has a partnership with a country that is enacting a genocide and completely disregarding international and humanitarian law. It will be a stain on NJ history.

  3. By infantile and narcissistic individual seeking attention, do you mean the governor? When confronted by someone who shares concerns about an ongoing humanitarian crisis, his response is “do you want a picture or not.”

  4. People like you spread garbage lies and think that NJ folks will just follow along. It is unfortunate that you misstate the use of the term genocide. That refers to Sudan, Rwanda, Bosnia and yes even the US. https://genocideeducation.org/resources/modern-era-genocides/

    Israel is our foremost Ally and NJ and the USA will continue to support them-for we know that when we need help they will be there for us. It is the only democracy in the Middle East and we need them to counteract Syria, Lebanon, and the big bad Iran.

  6. Hmmm – the Governor of NJ celebrating Lunar New Year – what are the chances that our Asian Congressman Andy Kim was invited?
