Remembering the Nakba

"Facing the Ongoing Nakba” tour schedule

“Facing the Ongoing Nakba” tour schedule

zion wants us to forget about it …

On the eve of an important event to discuss the Nakba* scheduled to take place this evening, the Executive Director of a tony uptown synagogue in New York City where the event was contracted to take place has attempted to cancel the event with no explanation in what can only be perceived as an effort to shut down discussion of the “ongoing Nakba” within the Jewish community.

The event was to feature the Palestinian human rights organization, Badil (whose timely recently released Corporate Complicity in Violations of International Law in Palestine [pdf] is a must read), and Israeli human rights organization Zochrot. It is part of multi-city speaking tour, and was sponsored in New York by four organizations: Jewish Voice for Peace-New York; Nakba Education Project; Jews Say No!; and the National Lawyers Guild Palestine Subcommittee.

*Nakba, means “catastrophe” in Arabic and refers to the forced displacement of Palestinians that began with Israel’s establishment in 1948, and continues to this day.

    The event was booked for & on the eve it was to take place the Directors of the facility cancelled with no explanation:

    SO THE GROUP WHO BOOKED THE FACILITY
    WILL LITIGATE
    WILL SUE THEM FOR BREACH OF CONTRACT
    WILL TAKE THEM TO COURT FOR BREACH OF CONTRACT.
    AND
    THEY WILL WIN
    THIS IS A BLESSING IN DISGUISE
    LITIGATION WILL TEACH THEM A LESSON IN REAL $$$ TERMS
    AND
    IT WILL SEND A STRONG MESSAGE TO OTHER FACILITIES WHO THINK THAT THEY CAN GET AWAY WITH THIS KIND OF CHICANERY.

    If they are a, for real organisation they will take the directors of this synagoge to court.
