If you accuse Israel of “genocide” and compare it to ISIS, you are welcome to speak at J-Street!
Guess who is speaking at the annual J-Street conference?
Yes, the same Saeb Erekat who recently compared Israel to ISIS.
The same Saeb Erekat who routinely accuses Israel of “genocide.”
The same Saeb Erekat who claimed that 96% of those killed in Gaza were civilians.
The same Saeb Erekat who claimed that his family had been in Palestine for 9000 years (they came from Jordan in the 19th century.)
The same Saeb Erekat who compares Mahmoud Abbas to Mother Teresa and Thomas Jefferson.
The same Saeb Erekat who believes that Jews cannot live in “Palestine.”
The same Saeb Erekat who once accused Qatar of investing in Jewish settlements.
The same Saeb Erekat who once said “Everybody should be aware that the only threat in the region is Israel’s occupation and not Iran.”
Yup – he’s a perfect fit for “pro-Israel, pro-peace” J-Street.
(Eric Fingerhut, the president of Hillel International, withdrew from speaking at J Street’s conference when he found out Erekat was a featured speaker.)
