Conference disinvites Helen Thomas, lies about it, suppresses evidence by Jay Knott (05/13/11)       ⇌ (Zionist opposition to freedom of speech)       

The forthcoming 'Move Over AIPAC' conference is a canonical example of crypto-Zionism. Until a Palestine Solidarity campaign is formed which does not allow groups like 'Jewish Voice For Peace' to join it, there won't be a Palestine Solidarity campaign.

Medea Benjamin and her cronies organized the 'Move Over AIPAC' conference, supposedly to tell the Israel Lobby where to go. Originally they invited journalist Helen Thomas, who embarrassed president Obama by asking him if he knew of any country in the Middle East which has nuclear weapons. Obviously, he knows it's Israel, but he didn't dare say so - Thomas made the supposedly most powerful man in the world show who pulls the strings. She was fired from the press corps for saying, correctly, that Israel has 'Jews only roads'.

When some of the Zionists within the left called on the conference organisers to drop Thomas, they complied. Then they lied about it, claiming she withdrew voluntarily. Then they removed the page containing the lie:


Google cache had a copy of the page for a while, but now that too has disappeared. But here is a cache of the cache:



Alison Weir says Helen Thomas was re-invited, but refused:


Weir is good on facts, but holds back on analysis. She wants a movement where "groups with partial commitment do not call the shots". 'Groups with partial commitment' means 'Jews who pretend to support Palestinian rights but are really more attached to their ethnic privilege'. The movement Alison wants won't occur until we call a spade a spade.
