Here perhaps is that step. A Groundbreaking Arab Initiative to Repudiate BDS.
In a groundbreaking event in London on Nov. 19 and 20, 30 public figures from 15 countries in the Arab world came together to repudiate the boycott, divestment and sanctions movement (BDS) against Israel and to call for direct civil relations between the Jewish state and their respective societies.
In an intensive two-day conference, concluded with a signing ceremony, the group, now formed as the Arab Council for Regional Integration, discussed — and sought solutions to — some of the most intransigent issues in the Middle East, calling for reconciliation both as a way to mend relations with Israel and also to heal some of the greatest internal problems in their own countries. The delegates addressed problems in the “cold peace” treaties between Israel and Egypt and Israel and Jordan, as well as expressing hope for further future cooperation elsewhere in the region.
Meanwhile, back at the ranch house: Amazon Banned Pro-Israel PJTN After It Attacked Ilhan Omar.
When asked about the SPLC’s accusation that PJTN is an “anti-Muslim hate group,” Cardoza-Moore said it is “absurd.”
“It’s absurd. PJTN exists to fight the oldest hate on earth: anti-Semitism. If standing up to anti-Semites like Rashida Tlaib and Ilhan Omar is what got us blacklisted then so be it,” she said.
“It would appear that PJTN has become a canary in the coal mine to warn what happens when big tech is allowed to create discriminatory policies based on the nefarious listings of political organizations with an axe to grind,” she said in a statement. “If speaking out against the anti-Semitism of Ilhan Omar and Rashida Tlaib has put me on the SPLC list, so be it. However, in a free country that cherishes freedom of expression, liberty and the pursuit of happiness, technology companies like Amazon should not be allowed to blacklist charities in this way.”
