School Starts, So Do We …

At least three positive actions loom, perhaps more. Jewish Witnesses for Peace and Friends have been somewhat silent on the summer’s slaughter in Gaza – not because we don’t care about the people – but because our interest has been in the total dismantlement of the Jewish state. While other “peace” groups called for an end to the attacks, JWPF wonders why these groups miss the point: that a Jewish state, fueled by Jewish interests, is incompatible with peace. Our protests continue with a single message: End the Jewish State.

September 20: Sharing the Stage

This writer plans to participate in a panel discussion with guests Gilad Atzmon and Greg Felton in Seattle, Washington on September 20, 2014. The discussion is titled “Jerusalem, Washington and Whatever Else”, and will be moderated by Ibrahim Soudy. It will be held at the University Temple United Methodist Church located at 1415 NE 43rd St. Seattle, WA 98105. Hope to see you there.

October 4: Eat-a-Cheeseburger Day

The most important holiday in the Jewish liturgical year falls on Saturday, October 4, and JWPF would like to see a larger turnout to match the anticipated larger turnout from Beth Israel congregants as they make their way to the sanctuary to pray for, among other items, the welfare of the Jewish state on that day. Peacemonger reminds us to celebrate the 5th Annual Bill Henry International Eat-a-Cheeseburger Day, which “honors the memory of Bill Henry (né Herskovitz), Z”L, for a decision that quite possibly saved an eight-year-old boy from a life of “Jewish chauvinism and exclusivism”. For the full story behind Eat-a-Cheeseburger Day please see the 2011 post about this momentous day.

October 12: ICPJ Crop Walk

“Ending hunger, one step at a time” is the theme for this social justice issue which the Interfaith Council for Peace and Justice calls to the public’s attention. Often times in years past, JWPF has found it propitious to remind the public about the starvation of children in Gaza which is part of the problem of world hunger, and one that can easily be eliminated, by eliminating our country’s financial support of the Jewish state. Please join us at the Rudolf Steiner High School, 2230 Pontiac Trail, Ann Arbor.

October 19: Jewish Federation’s Big Event

The local Jewish community will dig deep into its pockets once again in the hopes that Jewish supremacism and nationalism will remain in control of Palestine and Washington, DC. The Federation’s website has not been forthcoming with the venue for this money-grab, but JWPF plans to be present outside the event on public property. Please make plans to join us.

    Will the event in Seattle be streamed, or at least recorded on video?
