Camden County, New Jersey Democratic political potentate George E. Norcross, III was shockingly removed from last night’s Philadelphia Eagles versus Dallas Cowboys NFL game.

Norcross’ so-called offense was to hang a tasteful, combined United States and Israel flag-banner, directly outside of his box seats.

The featured photo above is the actual banner that Norcross flew at Lincoln Financial Field. It is elegant and patriotic and it correctly depicts a united America and Israel.

This is exactly what we all need to be doing right now.

Norcross is a devout Philadelphia Eagles fan and season ticket holder, who hosts one of the most elaborate “tailgate parties” before every home game.

This is a monumental moment in American, Israel and world history.

Even if there is a Philadelphia Eagles - Lincoln Financial Field policy against displaying signs, or, banners … good old fashioned, common sense should have been exercised on this occasion.

Even worse, there does not appear to be any policy regarding signage that Norcross violated. There was nothing offensive whatsoever with his banner. Just the opposite.

All they had to do was look the other way. Supporting Israel during a time when a terrorist enemy known as Hamas committed genocide upon the people Israel is a moral imperative.

I am in absolute disbelief that Norcross would be aggressively removed and the joint American - Israel Flag was ripped down without care … like it was trash.

It’s disgraceful and it’s just plain wrong.

Here is what Norcross has to say about the incident:

Yesterday, I was forcibly removed and assaulted by the non-police security staff of Lincoln Financial Field and the Eagles/NFL for refusing to remove a 3' ×5' American and Israeli flag I'd hung off the box I was sitting in. As a longtime passionate fan and season ticket holder, I have watched the Eagles/NFL make clear and strong statements on numerous important civil justice issues and ethnic and world conflicts, including supporting the people of Ukraine, so as a strong supporter of Israel - a country which was viciously attacked by the terrorist group Hamas less than a month ago -- I thought it was an important statement to make, said Norcross.

Norcross has not yet decided if he intends to take legal action against The Philadelphia Eagles, The NFL or any other parties.

Norcross continued:

It remains unclear why the Eagles/NFL believe that the US-Israeli flag should be deemed "obscene or indecent" or otherwise inappropriate - which is what I was cited for -- and should therefore be ripped down despite both issuing public statements strongly supporting Israel following the October 7th attacks. But as I consider whether to file suit against the Philadelphia Eagles, the NFL and the security company which yanked me out of the box and paraded me in front of thousands of fans, I urge other supporters of Israel to make their feelings known to the team and the NFL just as they have to universities like Penn and Harvard, said Norcross.

I agree completely with Norcross’ position regarding this matter.

Norcross could not have closed his argument  stronger or more appropriately regarding these regrettable circumstances, saying as follows:

There is no dispute: On October 7th, Hamas murdered innocent Israeli civilians, raped women, and butchered children, and continues to hold hostages. I believe Israel has the right to defend itself, just as the United States did following the September 11th attacks and I will remain a proud and vocal defender of its right to do so. Americans have the right to peacefully protest, but that does not include the right to threaten people with bodily harm or even death, concluded Norcross.

I completely and unconditional concur with George Norcross regarding this unfortunate and unnecessary circumstance. An incident like this should never have taken place.
