Great Turnout

JWPF would like to thank some wonderful people who pushed our attendance to fifteen on the 2nd annual Eat-a-Cheeseburger Day on October 8. Our Team Statistician informs us that the last time we put 15 vigilers on Washtenaw Avenue was August 13, 2005, and said we should take pride in a group which has showed remarkable steadfastness in the face of daunting Jewish political power.

This writer concluded the day’s work with a tasty cheeseburger in the company of a good friend and Palestinian Muslim, who was driven from his home in Nablus in 1967. If you’d like to share your own personal story of how you consumed a cheeseburger in honor of Bill Henry, we’d be delighted to hear from you. Please include your location at the time of consumption.

Gotta Love Cynthia McKinney

Two members of JWPF attended a formal dinner reception and fund raiser for the Benton Harbor (Michigan) Chapter of the NAACP, headed by our good friends, supporters and vigilers Ed and Dorothy Pinkney. Cynthia McKinney provided the keynote address, and pulled no punches as she challenged another speaker’s assertion that a Johns Hopkins report showed no relationship to a person’s color and the medical treatment he/she received. Ms. McKinney also addressed the incredible resolve of Palestinians and Libyans as they withstand barrages of military might from the Jewish State and its patsies in the US government. She told of being kidnapped by the military of the Jewish state and of a letter she wrote “from an Israeli prison” to her compatriots, similar to Martin Luther King’s “Letter from a Birmingham Jail”.

Will her comments about the crimes of the Jewish state be printed in the next issue of The People’s Tribune? This writer once again approached PT editor Sandy Reid – who was present and reiterated her newspaper’s commitment to local issues – and asked whether this local address, including comments critical of Israel, would be published. “We’ve had this conversation before, and you should read our mission statement” was her terse reply. So we must wait and see if these local comments about a pressing issue of human rights get published.

We detailed this blatant refusal to cover Israeli crimes in our vigil report of January 7, 2010, and invite readers to review it. Ms. Reid appears to remain in the pockets of Jewish power, and we hope to stand corrected upon reading the next issue of The People’s Tribune.

Reminder: October 30th : Protest the Jewish Federation fund raiser at Washtenaw Community College’s Morris Lawrence Building, 4800 East Huron River Drive, Ann Arbor, MI 48105. Time tentatively set for 4:00 pm.
