Palestinian American National Conference

Palestinian American National Conference

COMMENT: I am neither sponsoring nor endorsing this conference or any of the speakers. I have posted this in the interest of information only.

"The convening of a Palestinian American National conference that is inclusive of every Palestinian living in America is long overdue.

We are coming together as American Palestinians to commemorate the 60th anniversary of Al-Nakba (forced eviction of our people from our ancient homeland).

The American Palestinian people are an important and integral part of American Society and as such should be empowered to become an effective force in US policy towards a free Palestine. Therefore, as responsible American citizens we have a duty and a right to convince our government that “there will be no peace in the Middle East without the Palestinian Right of return”.

On May 23rd, 24th, and 25th of 2008, we are planning this conference to be held in Chicago at the Crowne Plaza Hotel with recognized International and American speakers, panel discussions and a full range of activities. This conference will be held to appeal to a wide audience to help rescue our people from the slums of the refugee camps and the brutality of the Israeli Military Occupation"
