    Over the decades of occupying the Palestinian homeland Israel reduced Gaza to an open air prison and raised humiliation, brutalization and murder to art forms. Palestinians can’t afford fighter planes or other sophisticated instruments of war, so their resistance is pathetic. Israel enjoys a kill ratio near one hundred to one and way higher in killing of women and children. Pathetic or not, Hamas was legitimately elected to resist the Jewish occupation and resist they do. Israel is a racist, apartheid, tribal theocracy by, of, and for the chosen people; a danger to itself and to civilization. The Jew’s cruel abuse of their goyim inferiors is on vivid display to the whole world. May the Palestinian State be established and thrive on punitive reparations so massive that Israel’s very existence is justly threatened. Be it Christian, Muslim, or Jew, religious control of ICBM nukes with submarine and land launch systems is profoundly scary. Yet we enabled the tribal theocracy of chosen people to become so equipped. Why, how, who, and whatever were we thinking?

    Indeed, it seemed like the Arab revolutions brought the Palestinians out on to the streets to face and suuffer death and injury whereas it had been the revolutionaries and fighters who had held the fort while the mainstream media perverted their message and their cause. Suddenly the general western public could relate to their plight as they appeared to be in full support of what was happening in Tuunisia Egypt Yemen et al. What a change in the tide! One that seemed impossible to accomplish before. God bless the Arab peoples! Long Live Palestine!

    Thank you for reposting this EI coverage of the “Move Over Aipac” event, and also for the photo of the lovely and talented Ms Khoury.

    Both the event and the EI coverage are important and valuable contributions; I salute the conference organizers and Ms Khoury for their hard work and choice of focus.
    However both suffer from serious limitations.
    I would urge readers to compare the EI coverage with the article by Harry Clark in Counterpunch, which discussed the Helen Thomas flap in considerable detail, and also noted the presence of Jeff Blankfort and Grant Smith, whose understanding of the “Aipac” problem (sic) greatly exceeds that of Walt and Mearsheimer.
    But not even Clark noted the organizers’ most egregious ommission: the failure to invite James Petras to address the event.

    Of course the selection of the words “Move Over Aipac” announced in advance the organizers’ limited aims. I would hope that the organizers will widen their circle of participants and start laying plans for a follow-up conference to consider how best to advance a demand for the Justice Dept. and the Congress to revoke Aipac’s legal permission to operate in this country. An additional objective should be to examine the other components of the pro-Israel network which wields such power over US foreign and military policy, beginning with the Conference of Presidents of Major Jewish Organizations/CMAJO, and proceeding to the fiftytwo outfits CMAJO represents.
    (cf. O’Brien: “American Jewish Organizations and Isreal”, Inst. for Palestine Studies 1986; this short book still provides a great overview of the pro-Israel power network.)
