Sabeel conference coming to Boston October 27
29 Aug 2007
A conference summary from a participant in last weeks Berkeley based Friends of Sabeel conference. Sabeel , a recognized hate group, is coming to Boston in October
From the blog of a conference attendee:


Nearly every speaker tried to convince us that they had nothing against Jews, many of their friends were Jewish, they loved Jews oh boy did they ever and what a pity that some of them refused to see the how right the Palestinians were and how wrong the Zionists but what else can you really expect from those people and in any case they themselves only speak to the sympathetic apologetic pro-Pally Jews nowadays, which is the Zionist Jews' fault, they started it and they are heartless, cruel, and calculating.

Subtle suggestions of Jewish plots, and too much Jewish influence in the halls of power, and in Christian churches. The Jewish establishment. The Jewish lobby. The Jewish censorship.

Subtle, in this case, means fairly blatant.

No mention, of course, of the Sfardic / Mizrahi exodus from the Muslim world. No mention of the barrage of Qassams. No mention of the unceasing attempts to kill Jews. No mention of anything that would provide context or perspective. Just an unceasing flow of anti-Israel rhetoric, from eight-thirty in the morning till lunch-time, and then for another hour afterwards, before the workshops on practical anti-Semitism and how to propagate hate...... oops, I mean the workshops on 'Why Divestment Is the Best Method to End the Occupation' (by Fahad Abu-Akel, room 2005, from 2:15 PM to 3:15), and 'Christian Zionism in Mainstream Churches' (by Rosemary Radford Reuther, room 200, from 3:30 to 4:30).

There were many other workshops. It was a veritable smorgasbord of love.

Rewriting the palestinian narrative
29 Aug 2007
One of the reason the big Petrol folks fund these conferences is to get everyone on the same page with the new, improved Palestinian narrative.

For instance- were you told to claim that the Palestinians were the descendents of the Phillistines? That didn't work too well, did it? The Phillistines themselves were of European origins, and never expanded their kingdom beyong the Southern Mediterranean coast. They weren't Semitic, they were uncircumsized...too problematic....
So the folks in the myth and narrative department of the Palestinian propaganda ministry have a new narrative now- better get on the same page, boys and girls.

The Palestinians are now descended from the Phoenicians. Remember that. Be consistent. Sabeel says so. And don't forget- you heard it here first, folks
Zionism is racism
01 Sep 2007
The only difference between a Jewish state and an Aryan state is the name of the favored ethnic group.

A racist us a racist ia racist. Down with them all.
02 Sep 2007
The only difference between a Muslim state and an Aryan state is the name of the favored ethnic group.
And the Muslims are more sucessful.
There are now 56 Muslim states in the world, with over a billion people. Hitler dreamed of being that successful
Hitler dreamed
08 Sep 2007
Hitler dreamed of a Jew free Europe. Israel is a Nazi wet dream.
Birds of a feather
09 Sep 2007
Hitler dreamed of a Jew free Europe. And the Arabs and Muslims dream of a Jew-Free Middle East.
Even in America, you find them emulating Hitler
"emulating Hitler"
10 Sep 2007
It is the Zionists who emulate Hitler. The only difference between a "Jewish state" and an "Aryan state" is the name of the favored ethnic group. That's why Zionists and Nazis have such a long, thick, rich history of collaborating with each other.

For example:
Anti-zionism =Racism
10 Sep 2007
What a deluded ideologue! Heres a "Palestinian" giving the Nazi salute and this dedicated "anti-zionist" can only say, "No, its the Jews!."

We've all figured out that while all anti-zionists aren't anti-semites, all anti-semites are always anti-zionists, and this bozo is the poster child!
20 Sep 2007
An ad hominem is not a rebuttal. It's a way to change the subject.

That a Zionist!
20 Sep 2007
Thats not a Palestinian giving a nazi salute. Its a Zionist doing it, trying to make the Palestinians look bad.
Yeah. thats it. Its a false flag.
You can always tell a zionist because they dress all in black or they wear kaffiyahs, or they carry anti-Semitic signs. Thats the sure sign of a Zionist.
"Its a false flag"
21 Sep 2007
False flag ops are their specialty. Consider, for example, how many times the name of outspoken anti-Zionist "nessie" has been forged, right here on Indymedia:
If Nessie says it then assume...
21 Sep 2007
If Nessie says it then a lie. I rather suspect ego maniac Nessie of false posting as himself JUST to claim that peoe false post as "Nessie."
"If Nessie says it then a lie."
21 Sep 2007
An ad hominem is not a rebuttal. It's a way to change the subject.

It is also true
26 Sep 2007
It is also true. Nessie is a well known Israel basher and liar.
