On January 29, 2023, two days after several Palestinian Islamic Jihad militants were killed in clashes with Israeli forces in Jenin, the American pro-Palestine organization Within Our Lifetime organized a rally in Brooklyn in honor of the "martyrs" of Jenin. At the rally, the organization's leader Nerdeen Kiswani said that you cannot support Palestinians without supporting their right self-defense. She added: "We will never stop fighting for Palestine until every single inch of our land is free!" Laila Boutros from the NY/NJ branch of the Samidoun organization, which was founded by PFLP members and is considered a terrorist organization by Israel, saluted the Palestinian "resistance organizations" and "their steadfast and valiant fight to avenge all Palestinian martyrs and reclaim Palestine from the [Jordan] River to the [Mediterranean] Sea."

One rally participant wore a sweatshirt emblazoned with a photo of Palestinian terrorist Ibrahim Al-Nabulsi in full combat gear and brandishing weapons, with the quote: "I love my mother and I have been martyred." Al-Nabulsi was killed in a firefight with Israeli security forces in August 2022. The protesters also chanted "Globalize the Intifada!" and "We don't want no two states, we want all of it!" The footage of the rally was posted to various online sources, including Christopher Leon Johnson on YouTube, Within Our lifetime on Instagram, and Palestine Online on Twitter.

Nerdeen Kiswani: "You cannot support Palestine without supporting our right to defend ourselves. When Zionists try to say that those in Jenin that were killed were terrorists, let them know that they are the real terrorists, that they established Israel through terrorism and that they maintain its existence through Israeli-Zionist terrorism, every single day."

[...]

Laila Boutros: "While Jenin has been a site of brutal and endless violence, it has also been the site of unrelenting and steadfast resistance from the Palestinian people and the Palestinian resistance organizations.

[...]

"We are here to honor the martyrs of Jenin refugee camp and all the martyrs of Palestine. We salute the brave Palestinian people and their resistance organizations, and their steadfast and valiant fight to avenge all Palestinian martyrs and reclaim Palestine from the [Jordan] River to the [Mediterranean] Sea. Glory to the martyrs of Jenin and the martyrs of Palestine! Glory to the brave Palestinian resistance!"
