News and views on Israel, Zionism and the war on terrorism.

April 23, 2003


An ad posted on the site of announces the INTERFAITH ZIONIST LEADERSHIP SUMMIT, set for May 17-18, 2003, in Washington DC (you can't get closer than that to the center of power).

The objectives of the Summit, as spelled out in the ad, are as follows [bold font added]:

Oppose rewarding murderous Palestinian terrorism with statehood – mocking our own war on terror and ultimately encouraging renewed Arab aggression against an Israel made invitingly vulnerable;

Expose how President Bush's stated policy of June 24, 2002, specifying essential pre-conditions for support of Palestinian statehood has been seriously undermined;

Lay bare the inherent absurdity of our State Department promoting a road map to Arab-Israeli 'peace' from a quartet whose other three members – Russia, the EU (France and Germany) and the U.N. – repeatedly disparage U.S. interests and are demonstrably hostile to Israel;

Document the responsibility of Iran, Syria Libya and Saudi Arabia for supporting Islamic terrorism;

Combat media ignorance and bias in Middle East coverage and virulent anti-Israel/anti-Semitic agitation on campus";

Solidify and chart future strategy for the emerging alliance of Jewish and Christian Zionists.
Among many others, speakers include Joseph Farah and Daniel Pipes.

An article on the Smmit appears in today's [23 April 2003] World NetDaily.
