Turkish Airlines sponsoring anti-Israel parlay

Over Thanksgiving weekend, Turkish Airlines is sponsoring an anti-Israel parlay being held by American Muslims for 'Palestine' in (where else?) Chicago (Hat Tip: Joshua I).
American Muslims for Palestine (AMP) has announced that they will be holding a four-day event called the "Conference for Palestine in the US: A Movement United" in suburban Chicago from November 22-25.

Turkish Airlines is reportedly one of the major corporate sponsors of the conference, scheduled to take place at the Oak Brook Hills Marriott Resort. The official state carrier of Turkey will be contributing as much as $15,000 for the event and, in order to encourage attendance, has announced that the “first 200 registrants will be entered into a raffle to win an international airline ticket from Turkish Airlines.”
The online mission statement of American Muslims for Palestine calls for attention to be brought to "the people of Palestine who have been living under occupation for decades," adding that, "we believe once Americans know the truth that their tax dollars support the longest-lasting and the last military occupation in modern history, they won’t stand for it and will demand that Congress change our foreign policy in the Middle East to one that is more balanced."
In an article on September 24, author Michael Rubin of Commentary Magazine said, "American Muslims for Palestine is not any ordinary organization. Its home page depicts the conference logo—a map of Palestine made from birds showing the Palestinian state encompassing all of Israel. So much for the two-state solution."

"The AMP conference is due to feature Fadwa Barghouti, wife of imprisoned terrorist Marwan Barghouti, currently serving five life sentences for murder. For several years, the AMP has worked to promote nakba (catastrophe) commemorations on college campuses, with a goal to delegitimize Israel’s existence. The group’s national campus coordinator moved to disrupt a speech by the Israeli ambassador at UC-Irvine back in 2010. "
Read the whole thing.  Maybe once the election is over, they can announce that Hussein Obama is addressing them too.
