If anyone thinks the ISM/PSM Conference is just an academic affair, a discourse on the need or values of "divestment" and "boycotts" of Israel, be aware that this noxious movement forces children, the elderly and poor in Israel to go to bed hungry.
Many people think that because Israel is a modern country that starvation does not exist, But the Intifada and boycotts do play a part in hurting Israel's economy.
Jewish children and the elderly are going to bed hungry in Israel while Georgetown University hosts a fifth annual Palestine Solidarity Movement Divestment Conference February 17-19th that will be a training and strategy session on how to expand the Arab boycott against and encourage divestment from Israel by US colleges and churches. If anyone thinks these programs do no harm, the Bank of Israel publicized that in the last fourteen years since Oslo and the phony Arab “peace process,” the number of Israeli families that live below the poverty line has tripled. Jewish Israeli children and the elderly go to bed hungry each night due to the economic hardships created by the Arab Intifada and such boycotts. Many Israeli families cannot afford meat and poultry (see: http://www.plate.co.il/en/index.asp ).
This Georgetown Conference has one purpose: to make things worse for them.
Enough is enough. American universities are being used by anti-Semites in the Arab world to intellectualize hatred for Israel and to expel Jews from their homes (look at Gaza and Amona), and to continue the Arab mantra of dismantling Israel for another Arab Muslim state. The Nazis starved Jews while most American Jewry largely looked on. There is no difference. The JDL is at the forefront of fighting anti-Semitism in America no matter where it may be; a Nazi party march on a synagogue, or a phony “peace conference” at an American university that is really a recipe for more war against Jews in the Middle East to financially starve them out of existence or drive them out. Your generous donation will help the JDL attend the Georgetown event and counter the lies, the propaganda and the plans disseminated there to make even more Jewish children go to bed hungry at night by strangling Israel’s economy. This year’s conference features the same slate of anti-Semites, all of whom will claim they are “peace activists” then refuse to condemn suicide bombings and terrorism. These include Alison Weir who writes for David Duke’s Nazi website and says Jews aided the Holocaust to create Israel, Communists like Ora Wise and Adam Shapiro who want Israel destroyed as a symbol of Jewish-capitalist world domination, and your same garden- variety pan-Arab nationalists and Muslim Jew-haters as always like Paul LaRudee who once wrote of his experience sleeping in the bed of a suicide bomber. Fadi Kiblawi, another leader, once wrote of how he wanted to be a suicide bomber and blow himself up in America. A major leader, Fayyad Sbaihat, comes from an entire family who are members of the PFLP terrorist group that has murdered 14 Americans as well as Israelis. And Mazen Qumsiyeh is another leader who called Jews living in Israel “a disease” at the last PSM conference. These people want the end of America also: Abe Greenhouse, an anarchist leader of the PSM, said the tools attendees learn at these conferences and practice against Israel are the training ground for the American Anarchist Movement. This event has long term goals of destroying America as well. Attendees from the International Socialist Organization and International A.N.S.W.E.R. who advocate the violent overthrow of the US government will be there in droves. Every Jew-hater, every pervert, every supporter of totalitarianism overseas will be at this event masquerading as an academic conference to learn and train. The mainstream press does not know the truth about these people who misuse words like “human rights,” “international law” or “peace activists” to further their real goal of dispossessing, conquering and killing the Jews of Israel and in the long run to destroy America “by any means necessary.”
And all the above includes making Israeli children and the elderly go to bed hungry. The ISM/PSM/PLO divestment movement is the only internationally organized program designed to intentionally starve a population out. And it's not just the Jews in Israel either who suffer. Israeli citizens are Arabs too.
Think about this the next time you put your children to bed or kiss your grandparents good night.
