Beginning tonight, the pro-Palestinian organization, Al-Awda, is hosting a three-day conference in Garden Grove, California dedicated to bashing Israel. Here is a link to their announcement:
As you can see from the below link from Discover the Networks, this bunch is dedicated to the proposition that some 7 million Palestinians (and their descendants)who left Israel in 1948 to get out of the way of the Arab armies (who were roundly defeated) should be allowed unfettered return to Israel (most of the ones who left are dead, but the 7 million number consists of their descendants.)
Here are some of the "featured speakers":
Norman Finklestein- a discredited joke of a former professor (canned by DePaul University), who hates Israel and now makes his living speaking in front of audiences who also hate Israel.
Laila al-Arian- the daughter of "political prisoner" as the flyer says, Sami al-Arian, ex-University of South Florida professor, convicted of funneling support to a terrorist organization in the Middle East. She works for al-Jazeera in Washington.
Jess Ghannam- San Francisco State University professor recently quoted as praising the 11 Muslim Student Union disruptors of the Israeli ambassador's speech at UC Irvine and stating that now Israeli officials will be afraid to speak anywhere. Someone needs to explain the First Amendment to this clown. I wonder how he would feel this weekend if somebody disrupts his dopey remarks.
There will also be a short blurb by a representative of the Muslim Student Union at UC-Irvine. You know, the "Stand with the Irvine 11" stuff.
And others. So if you want to come out and hear a bunch of clowns rail against Israel, the United States and "Zionist Jews", drop by the Embassy Suites in Garden Grove this weekend.
Tell 'em Fousesquawk sent you.
