Intoduction by Gilad Atzmon: The following is a message from Dr Gabi Weber re: "PALESTINE, ISRAEL, GERMANY - THE BOUNDARIES OF OPEN DISCUSSION" Conference.
It is almost amusing to find out that, so far, the only people who attempted to stop the conference were some elements within the so-called Jewish 'anti' Zionist network. In due time, their names and tactics will be exposed.
The conference is an attempt to liberate our discourse. We will elaborate on some 'contentious' topics such as suppression of truth, history, narration, mainstream-media complicity and media coverage, Islamophobia, anti-Semitism vs. criticism of Israel and responsability. We will also try to look into practical solutions for Palestinian self-determination.
You really want to be there!!!
While attempts made by the usual suspects(1) to destroy Palestine Days in Freiburg are still going on, Cafe Palestine Freiburg very pleased to present to you our programme update.
Two of the speakers pulled out due to pressure, intimidation and personal disagreement.
Ramzy Baroud had to cancel a whole German tour as important tasks are waiting for him in September. However he will make a video appearence in the conference and copies of his speech will be distributed in German and English.
Three amazing Palestinian speakers who will join the conference and make an important contribution to the event: Dr. Samir Abed-Rabbo from Dallas (One Democratic State), Sameh Habeeb from London (Palestine Telegraph) and Dr. Makram Khoury-Machool from Cambridge (Middle East Media Specialist) .
You will find their topics and biographies on our conference blog
The speeches will be translated simultaneously into German and/or English.
A counter-event will take place at the same time. Anti-Deutsche Freiburg, a pro-Israeli organisation is giving talks on anti-Semitism and the hatred towards Israeal after 9/11.
What is amazing with their programme - they chose the same venue on Sunday, September11th where Cafe Palestine took place for the first time in May 2010. Our topic then was "The Children of Gaza". Antifa-'specialist' Feuerherdt will talk about the blockade of Gaza.
What an exciting time we are living in!
Welcome to Freiburg!
