Rabbis, Palestinians, Activists Stage Die-In Outside AIPAC Conference
 Arrests as President Obama Speaks

WASHINGTON -- Rabbis, Palestinians, activists with the peace group CODEPINK and others from the Jewish peace community protested outside of AIPAC Conference as President Obama gave his keynote speech; one protester was arrested as the presidential motorcade entered the Convention Center. Brian Van Slyke, a 23 year old student from Chicago, currently being detained after unintentionally entering the street as the motorcade passed, was roughed up by police officers, his charges are yet to be disclosed. At least a dozen protesters , with the MoveOver AIPAC conference and protests, funneled into the street after Van Slyke’s arrest, effectively closing down the intersection while performing a “die-in” covered in bloody cloths. Activists from the group US Boat to Gaza have mounted a boat float with dozens of people, singing and chanting.

The protests at the DC Convention (9th St and Massachusetts Ave, NW ) will continue throughout the day.

“The Obama Administration must encourage an end to illegal settlement construction and support the Palestinian unity government,” says Medea Benjamin, co-founder of CODEPINK and co-organizer of the MoveOverAIPAC conference and protests. “His ‘mutually agreed upon swaps’ for land won’t get us anywhere closer to peace if Israel does not have to acknowledge the Palestinian’s legitimately elected government.”

“This conflict has been going on for longer than I can remember; it’s time for a paradigm shift. Unfortunately the President’s speech did not have more substance to actually get Palestinians and Israelis to the peace he insists is possible. The speech did not go to the heart of the conflict, which is the occupation” says Andy Shallal, DC artist and activist.

This day-long event is part of a conference that calls for a new American foreign policy in the Middle East and challenges the Israeli lobby's siege of Congress. Termed "Move Over AIPAC," the Conference is organized Organized by CODEPINK: Women for Peace and endorsed by over 100 peace and justice groups.

When the Western world continues to embrace fascist Zionism, with its war criminals, war crimes, and Obama keeps showing up at AIPAC, itself a fascist, lobby, one can clearly see the connection between sociopaths in Amerika, Israel, and Nato, where all are appeasing, protecting their own war criminals, corporate criminals, in a collective insanity, global fascism. When liberals embrace fascists, and appease fascism, they become criminal, corrupt and tyrannical. What is the difference between Bush's U.N official, who rescinded the resolution against Zionism, as colonial, racist, and totalitarian, and Obama who embraces the same tyrannical , Empire ideology. ???? Obama agrees with Bush and fascists that Zionism and the Israeli racist state, should continue to get a big Sieg Heil from liberal warhawks???

The Western world has degenerated into a political class of sociopaths where its social masses clearly see and are outraged at the illegal wars of aggression, illegal piracy, illegal extra judicial assassinations, like Israel's attack against internationals and the Gaza flotilla, even as Obama coddles his war criminals, as well as Israeli/Nato war criminals.

Ray McGovern, the former CIA analyst, has written a letter to Obama, to warn him about coddling criminal , ISRAELI fascists, who executed 9 flottilla Gaza activists, last year, including a 19 yr old American kid filming the illegal attack. Turkey has just warned ISRAELI fascists, not to attack the second flotilla, and by implication Obama as well, who emraces Zionist fascism, criminality, War crimes, in the same way he protects BUSH war criminals.

This time, Turkey, a Nato member, said it would retaliate, if Israeli Nazis murdered more of its citizens. Nato is required to defend a member state if it is attacked, but the West has so many dupliciotus, sociopathic, criminal standards, that it is likely that they would attack Turkey for defending itself from these Zionist fascists. So Netanyahoooo, has already told the world it is planning to violently attack the second flotilla Gaza expedition, and Obama must stop these thugs or find himself embracing more American Fascism, Empire criminality, sociopathic American politicians, promoting Western Fascism/Zionism. BIBI must be stopped this time around or the world will slap down Amerika and Israel for its Nazism, fascist Empire, embrace of Fascist Zionism. The Warnings have gone out by internatonal activists and Turkey.......the American People must take on thei own political class of sociopaths, not just Netanyahoo.....but the Western criminal, fascist alliances.

Just saw that, Obama, showed up at the fascist AIPAC Zionist, Israeli convention, appeasing their fascism, war crimes, war criminals, proof that Liberals will sell out their grandmothers, to whore for class tyranny, empire tyranny, corporate fascism. Zionism is colonialism, racism, fascist to the core, and Obama is its whore, in the Western alliance of psychopaths.
