making a fuss in New Orleans

The general assembly of American Jewish organizations in New Orleans is essentially a congregation of the Israel lobby. It happened just a week ago and what better place for those who oppose the Israel lobby to make a stand.

Five young people did so, having the courage to disrupt the presentation by Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu. Take a look

Now, meet four of them...

They have started a website at Young Jewish Proud. where you can read statements from each of them. One that impressed me was by Emily Ratner. I'm very proud of these "kids" who give me hope for the future and pride in America. They are saying what we all should support.


  1. Cliff,

    This is not a post on topic, but I wanted to let you know that Laila el-Haddad's book, Gaza Mom, is now available from Amazon. A copy arrived today and I think you would find it a great resource for your site. I do not know her, nor have ever contacted her. One of the video's you posted mentioned her site. A woman who can write so much for so long deserves a large audience. greg pollock

  2. Thanks for the tip - I used to read her blog - 2 years ago or so. Last I heard she left Gaza and then was not allowed back in.
