Clicking on hate speech-any other suggestions? Update.

Someone, named Sue, on the Israel/Palestine Mission Network Facebook, confirmed to a reader that she and Noushin Framke, communications chairperson for IPMN, places the links on their site. Today they linked to what appears to be a Palestinian site, Occupied Palestine which has a memorial to people killed in Palestine in 2011, supposedly by Israel, but it is hard to believe anything on this site. The reason is that when one scrolls down to the bottom of their page there is a long list of articles, videos and links which include one explaining the so called “Protocols’ of the Elders of Zion,” plus other appalling information.

I could place the video on my site as I did the Holocaust one, which was posted on the site they linked to this weekend. However I am reluctant to place so much ugliness on my blog so instead here is a link to that page, Protocols of Zion Explained. Another page is linked to what is called Jew Watch. That particular site is filled with many ugly articles.

Today I clicked on the “report page” on the left side of the Israel/Palestine Mission Network Facebook page. When the box came up I clicked hate speech. What else can anyone do except, of course, pray for the IPMN, Noushin Framke and Sue.

Update David Fischler of Reformed Pastor has placed an excellent post about this on his site and he added the offending video with interesting details that link it to the anti-Semite David Duke. "IPMN: Linking to Hate"

I've posted on this as well, complete with the Protocols video. Thanks for bringing this to our attention. I know that PCUSA is never going to rein these people in, or say a word of criticism, but it's important to keep before Presbyterians where their money is going and who their denomination is supporting.

Some info on Palestine:

"Life expectancy (in the West Bank is 73.4, placing the territories 77th in the world, compared with a life expectancy of 72.5 in Jordan, and 71.8 in Turkey.[16] Wikepedia

Also
"The Palestinian economy in the West Bank is estimated to have grown an annual 9 percent in the first half of this year, as Israel eased access restrictions, according to the International Monetary Fund.

The Gaza economy expanded about 16 percent during the same period, boosted by Israel’s relaxation of restrictions on imports, Oussama Kanaan, the organization’s chief of mission in the West Bank and Gaza, said today. The West Bank and Gaza are heading for 8 percent growth this year, up from 7.2 percent in the West Bank in 2009, and 5.4 percent in Gaza, Kanaan said." This was in June 2010

Bet you never see these figures on IPMN

No, Bob, you won't see it there.

Viola is it just me or do those many who want peace for all concerned in Israel/Palestine drop off the map after GA? You keep posting and no one seems to care that we have a group that continues to ignore a part of reality. Where are those who show up at GA? Do they forget between meetings?

Bob,
There is the group Presbyterians for Middle East Peace of which I am a member but they basically operate as a GA concern group although there are those who keep watch so to speak and do speak up when there is need. I have a link among my links and it is at http://www.pfmep.org/cms/index.php?option=com_content&view=article&id=87&Itemid=70

I am constantly fed information by some also. The problem is that we have a renegade group which is official and no one wants to rein them in. Still, they have been slightly reined in several times. There needs to be a greater out cry but we are all so involved in our other problems that that is where we do most of our work.

I still think we need to keep speaking out because if we don't the issues will become worse.
