Fenton dumping Fakhoora

J Street affiliated Fenton Communications is ending its participation in the al-Fakhoora project, a project designed to delegtimize Israel and to gain support for the Hamas. The apparent reason that Fenton is dropping the project is fear that it will offend other clients.
The announcement from Fenton Communications, which specializes in PR for not-for-profit groups, followed The Israel Project’s distribution of a news release publicizing Fenton’s representation of Fakhoora on June 23.

The release noted Fakhoora's role in helping to organize the flotilla of six aid ships. An Israeli raid on one of the ships on May 31 resulted in the deaths of nine passengers on board.

The release was issued to The Israel Project’s mailing list and Fenton clients.

"The purpose of a public relations firm is to help provide a good name to their clients, and only a PR firm with their own good name and reputation can succeed in business,” said Jennifer Laszlo Mizrahi, founder of The Israel Project.

Representatives from Fenton were unavailable for comment. The firm, well known in Democratic and liberal circles in the United States, has represented Jewish groups, including the American Jewish World Service, a relief group.
Well, maybe there's more to Fenton after all than representing the 'Palestinians.' Or at least they would like there to be. Heh.
