About us:
BostontoPalestine, or "B2P" (www.ismboston.org) is an all-volunteer organization that has helped send more than forty local activists to the West Bank since 2002 for solidarity delegations and to join in nonviolent resistance to occupation.

We are seeking 8-10 Boston area activists working on social justice struggles with an awareness of Palestine, for a summer 2006 educational & solidarity trip to the Palestinian West Bank. The 3-week trip includes moving around the West Bank as a guided group as well as an internship volunteering in a particular community or two.

Our goal is to give participants a first hand sense of the crisis and equip them to inform and activate their home campuses and communities. Delegates will visit Palestinian cities, villages, and refugee camps, and meet with Palestinian and Israeli peace & justice activists, organizations, community groups, and families. Delegates will stay in Palestinian homes when possible. There will be a special emphasis on conversations about how participants can support Palestinian efforts through divestment or other solidarity campaigns.

Participant Requirements:

Fundraising: Participants are required to help fund their trips prior to their departure and help fundraise for the trips of others upon return. Fundraising support will be offered and grants are available. We will work with committed delegates to ensure that finances are not a major obstacle.

Meetings: Meetings: Attendance 3-4 meetings with fellow delegates in the Boston area prior to the trip, including a weekend retreat Friday May 19th- Sunday May 21st.

On return: It is our expectation that you will come back to the US and build the movement for justice in Palestine. We are looking for people who want to educate and activate others in their communities.

France was not worth visiting on D-Day. But some people thought it was worth the effort.

"Free suicide belts" ???

And how many Americans have gone to Zionist occupied Palestine to sacrifice thier lives to kill anyone in Zionist occupied Palestine??? OK, it was a trick question. If you thought ZERO, you would be wrong, because many American Zionists HAVE. And they are he ONLY ones. There have never been ANY Americans who have gone to Zionist occupied Palestine to strap a suicide belt to themselves in order to blow up murderous thieving Zionist crusaders.

But that is not what pathetic propagandists would have the braindead believe. Just check out @'s pathetic post. NO Americans have gone to Zionist occupied Palestine to strap suicide belts on to kill the murderous thieving Zionist crusaders while MANY American Zionists have gone to Zionist occipied Palestine to join in the murderous theft of Palestinian lands. But @ jokes about there being 50 waiting for those who seek the truth .

Truth is what Zionists and thier enablers fear. They fear truth so much, they have to create fictional scenarios that have nothing to do with reallity. But that is nothing new. Everything Zionists have ever said aboput thier murderous theft of Palestinian lands has turned out to be crap propaganda ment to mislead the braindead.

thanks for showcasing how void you are of anything of actual substance and are limited to makeing up misleading fiction in your defense of the Zionist's offensive war of conquest.

"Zionist Crusaders?" Do you not see the contradiction here?
Re: Summer Palestine Trip: Grants Still Available

You run away from the points I made in exposing how full of crap your post was by nitpicking on my choice of the word crusaders. Wow, are we ever so impressed.

I assume you mean that Zionists who steal palestinian Christian lands along with palestinian Mulsim lands don't carry crosses. Well, the word crusader has a meaning that is hard to missunderstand that goes well beyond the root word cross. If you think I am suggesting that Zionist crusaders carry crosses, then you are a moron. It is all the other atributes of crusade (murderous theft, religious zealotry, ubbermensh mentality, etc) that I referance when I use the phrase Zionist crusader. Not that they carry crosses.

But please feel free to showcase how little you have to be right about. Ohhh, Zionists don't carry crosses. Wow. It is like you are not even trying .

Just to clarify, that was not the real @... oh, well.

I get a good laugh out of how BIMC editors censor my posts and proclaim "that is not the real @" as if @ were a real name! How silly is that? There are at least 4 people on this site who use the @ sign to post under. Who is to say who is real or not?

do you worry that you are obsessed with 'zionists"? I know a guy who sound like you. But he says "UFOS" instead of zionists. You must be very nervous. Fortunately, I am very bored.
