Walt and Mearsheimer featued at anti-AIPAC conference

While supporters of Israel gather in one part of Washington in late May, supporters of terror will gather in another part - presumably to cheer on the terror flotilla that is scheduled to attempt to breach Israel's Gaza blockade at the same time.

AIPAC's policy conference will take place in Washington May 22-24, while across town a conference of terror supporters and their academic godfathers will attempt to introduce 'new policies' in the Middle East.
From May 21 to 24, 2011, in Washington DC, join CODEPINK, the US Campaign to End the Israeli Occupation and a coalition of over 80 organizations at an historic gathering "Move Over AIPAC: Building a New US Middle East Policy."

It is timed to coincide with the annual policy meeting of AIPAC, which will feature Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu, members of the Obama administration and hundreds of members of Congress. The Move Over AIPAC gathering will expose AIPAC’s negative influence on U.S. foreign policy and promote an alternative approach that respects the rights of all people in the region.

The impressive list of speakers includes The Israel Lobby authors John Mearsheimer and Stephen Walt, Holocaust survivor Hedy Epstein, writer Alice Walker, consumer advocate Ralph Nader, authors Nadia Hijab and Phyllis Bennis, Palestinian blogger Laila El Haddad, Jewish Voice for Peace Director Rebecca Vilkomerson, peacemakers Cindy and Craig Corrie, Israeli researcher Dalit Baum, human rights lawyer Noura Erakat, clown doctor Patch Adams, Rabbi Lynn Gottlieb, union organizer Bill Fletcher, US Campaign to End the Israel Occupation national organizer and human rights advocate Anna Baltzer, Janet McMahon from the Washington Report on Middle East Affairs and many more!

There will be trainings, workshops, press conferences, book signings, cultural events, and culminate with peaceful, creative protests outside the AIPAC convention itself.
I'm almost surprised that Samantha Power isn't on the speakers' list.

But actually, this conference is the perfect metaphor for the 'Palestinian' side. It's not a conference about something 'positive' - for example, how to prepare for a 'state of Palestine.' It's a conference that's about something negative, a conference that defines itself as being against someone else's (in this case AIPAC's) narrative. Just like the 'Palestinian nationalist' movement isn't about creating 'Palestine' - it's about destroying Israel.

What could go wrong?

By the way, I know I have some readers in Oregon. If any of you could explain to me why the 'Salem News' is reporting a promotional item for this 'conference' as a news story, I'd much appreciate it.

The incoherently meaningless Soviet-style agitprop poster is a nice reminder of the calcified anti-Zionist Manichean mindset of these parasitic pygmies. (Of course their beef isn't with the Jews and AIPAC or a tiny lobby, it's with the American people that rightfully refuses their bile and contempt for Israel).

I get that big muscular black arm--that's the righteous anger of the Soviet, excuse, international proletariat oppressed.

But what is that red oriental looking collapsing tower thingy? Are they tearing down Ali Bab's house? The Old City?

As the Arab Levant degenerates into tribal anarchy and savage mahdiism, their cloistered little Jew-baiting universe may be in considerably more peril than beleaguered Israel, much less American support for Israel that continues to rise, catalyzed not only by disgust at Islamic decadent savagery but just this brain dead leftism.

Oh, those "creative protests" outside the AIPAC convention call could be met by cheerful conventioneers selling souvenir bumper stickers like "I DON'T BRAKE FOR CODEPINK" and creative T-shirts like "Stephen and Walt: How's that lion act in Vegas going?"or "Patch Adams? Sure, MIddle East policy from washed up hippie clowns" or "Palestine, the Corvair of the Middle East. Unsafe at any Speed."

I wonder whether the Indiana group knows about this? I'll send them a link to your post. Although they are in contact with Israel Matzav because of reading your site, right? So they're probably seeing it.

Also, Mr. Sparky, the growth in support for Israel in the U.S. is, also in part, due to the fact that Israel has already tried almost all of the braindead New Left's (and old left commies and hippies) ideas, with attacks in return. So when these people hold candles in the air for peace, more and more people just roll their eyes. The U.S. needs to not give up - we need to vote out Codepink's friend Obama and all his henchmen before they can complete their action of dragging the West over the cliff into the throatslitting dark ages of the Caliphate...

A pot pourri of Israel haters gather in a conference. What else is new?

That said, I read recently elsewhere that "Patch Adams" hates Israel. I am sad that I attended the feel-good propaganda film about his life, starring Robin Williams. :-(

Carl, have you visited the Salem News Web site? Ken O'Keefe is listed as one of the staff, and hosts a video at the site in which the Samouni family of Gaza is interviewed to "disprove" Goldstone's recantation re Israel deliberately committing war crimes. (Ken O'Keefe, if you don't know, is a former Marine and was an activist on the Mavi Marmara.) There is also an article that asserts that Cast Lead was "a war of Israeli aggression and not, as Zionism's spin doctors continue to assert, self-defense." There is also coverage of a pro-cannabis rally. In other words, a leftist rag. Hope this answers your question!
