Allyson Rowen Taylor

Associate Director, American Jewish Congress

Introduction by Ami Isseroff

The Palestine Solidarity Movement meeting held at Georgetown University offered a fascinating and horrifying spectacle it seems. You could watch subversion and evil at work, genocide prepared while you wait. Allyson Rowen Taylor attended the conference as an observer for the American Jewish Congress. Her notes are "must reading" if you want to comprehend the magnitude of the evil contemplated by these people and to understand the purpose, the mechanism and the approach. Briefly, the idea is to annihilate Israel as a Jewish state. The strategies adopted for doing it are boycotts and divestment campaigns that isolate Israel and cast it in the role of apartheid South Africa. Do I exaggerate? Here is Mohamed Abed:

Divestment and Boycott have a successful precedent in South Africa. Isolation of cultural spheres in the intellectual community will help isolate Israel. Jews must be prepared for a future in Palestine. There will be no division of the land...

Make sure they understand that divestment and boycott should be implemented, and this is a unifying factor for activists. This should be stressed, that this in not just a Palestinian cause, but for all of us who believe in multiculturalism. This is very attractive to liberals, and engaging. The situation is now at a standstill, and this is a last vestige of hope.

This plan for  the destruction and submersion of the entire entire Jewish people in Israel, the annihilation of our national existence, is announced under the heading of multiculturalism and liberal values. Even Goebbels could not do half so well as this!

 The tactics are masterful. "The Book" on subversion of this sort was written by none other than V.I. Lenin over 100 years ago, in articles like "What is to be done?" Then it was rewritten by Mao Tse-Tung. These people have studied every page of those books. They added the "Look Legit" tactic of the USA Mafia. From Vladimir Ilyich Lenin for example, they learn the value of small cells well as the fundamentals of subversion. :

3. Large versus small communities

The large are good, but there are many ideas in a large community, it is harder to reach out, and there is less personal connection.

4. Small Communities

This is the most efficient means as they share the same values, and the same ideas. Make yourself part of their one family and target them, with one message, “free Palestine” and human rights abuses.

Indeed, small communities and small cells also do not attract unwanted attention as Lenin noted, and they are so easy to subvert - just make believe you are one of them: 

8. First Impressions

The way you walk, the ways you talk are all very important

“Look Christian”

“Study Christian Culture, understand it, so you can create Christian solidarity to then reach out to Palestinian solidarity.”

9. Frame the Issue

How you look and talk are important, Become part of their family, proper grooming is a must, and maintain a friendly and a good social demeanor.” “Become the Ned Flanders (Simpson’s character) of your church”

Avoid profane language. Ban language that does not fall into the values of a Christian home. Otherwise you will not be taken seriously.

Mind your manners – “say “G-d blesses you” when someone sneezes. “Hi, How are you”, and show solidarity, and act “Christian like”.

In other words, walk the walk and talk the talk. Be a pious hypocrite like Ned Flanders, who was of course created as a figure of fun.  Note that they really and truly referred to Mr. Flanders. This is what they really think of the Christianity! Nothing is sacred:  Exploit, dissemble, subvert. A huge confidence game.

 Lenin and Mao and Lucky Luciano are not enough:

10. Come bearing Gifts

Everyone love gifts, and the Holy land is important to all Christians. Get a gift of a rosary, or holy water, and then tell them about the plight of the Christians in Palestine. This is a good way to raise money as well, to sell the items in Church to help the Christians in the holy land feed their children, they will love this, and it brings them closer to the origin on their religion.

Remember Homer and the Trojan horse? "Beware of Palestinians and they bear gifts." But that is not enough:

12. The role of Sex

Use your sexuality to your advantage...

The Palestinian horse will be aided by Palestinian whores.

Progressives, Christians, Academics, citizens groups, ethnic groups and government bodies: Be forewarned. Here is a group ready to invade you and take on your forms, as if in a B movie about aliens from outer space. They will come disguised as Palestinians bearing gifts, as church ladies exploiting their "sexuality," as Ned Flanders, as the guy next door and the girl next door. They will bring rosaries and holy water to Christians and gifts of handiwork to progressives. To Jews they will be Jews.  If you are a Christian, they will tell you about oppression of Christians in Bethlehem, but they won't tell you that it is the Muslims who are doing the oppressing If you are African American they will be for black rights. For women's groups they will be women's rights activists. If you are a Babbittown bigot then they will be lily white male chauvinist pigs. They will look and talk and speak like you or your neighbor or like whomever you would wish them to be. If you are a liberal they will be liberal. If you are a conservative and religious, they will be conservative and fraudulently pious. They will monitor the clothing that you wear and the wine that you drink until you are one of them. The women's rights groups and the black rights groups, the Christians and the liberal Jews, the board of governors of the university and the student council will all be subverted toward the issue of destroying Israel. Practically nobody is immune to attack except perhaps evangelical Christians  and the Zionist Organization of America. Even groups like that may be subverted. Incredibly, the PSM has been working steadily to "convert" pro-Israel young people who are sent to Israel by the Birthright program. They are very proud of this. Can we trust anyone? Does that man next to you talking about Israel have a funny sort of light in his eye?   Is it Invasion of the Palestinian Body Snatchers or the gouald of Star Gate come to life? Like parasitic larvae they have but one mission - to convince you to join their campaign to annihilate Jewish liberty, to wipe the state of Israel off the map. They want to turn you into zombie soldiers in a war of genocide against the Jewish people. We did not invent any of this. They said in their own words.

Unbelievably, Georgetown University apparently did a bit more than just permit this gathering to occur on their premises. They provided active logistics support. This is not happening in a Star Gate episode or in the wilds of Afghanistan or in Saudi Arabia. It is happening right near your home in America, near the capital of your country.

Extensive edited excerpts of Allyson Taylor's notes follow.

Report on Georgetown University, Palsolidarity Conference

Allyson Rowen Taylor

Associate Director, American Jewish Congress

I have attended two previous conferences of the Palestine Solidarity Movement, and the tenor of this conference was notably different. The movement is now trying to look, act and behave more mainstream, especially since the Presbyterian Church and the United Church of Christ have used the divestment issues in their platforms. The two previous conferences were more radical in their registration and screening, down to searching bags and checking personal identification prior to entry. Though there was heavy security at all entrances, there was no need to show ID, or proof of registration, though a ten dollar fee was required.

Campus Security was very heavy, and the screening of the press was closely monitored by PSM. Some reporters with press passes were denied entry into the formal press conference. We were given press kits on PSM with stickers from the Georgetown University Logo, including name tags marked "Georgetown University." Many monitors sat in all the breakout sessions, as well as during the question and answer period in the first meeting in Gaston Hall.

....

Panelist Philip Farah, a senior economist and former instructor at the Lutheran School of Ramallah and Birzeit University is active in advocating divestment with various Church groups... He stated the suicide bombs work against the movement, and do not help the future hope of a one state solution....

1st Breakout Session

Anatomy of Divestment Opposition: Exposing Strategies and Developing Tools

Judy Johnson, Head of Student Affairs at Georgetown was the moderator of this session.

Rachel Roberts introduced herself as a Jew, and former Zionist.

Her answer to the Jewish groups-

Ms. Roberts was not a very powerful advocate; however, her being a Jew, from a “long line of Zionists” sets the stage of solidarity in the issue of divestment, and provides a theme that there are “good Jews” and “bad Jews”. She is also no longer in school, but devotes a lot of time working in the Palestinian areas and trying to encourage students who go on the Zionist Birthright program to leave and go to work with the PSM/ISM instead.

...

Session Three

Why Divestment, Why now?

Hosted by Ali Abunimah-founder of the Electronic Intifada

Panelist Mohammed Abed  lectured in the Dept of Philosophy at the U of Wisconsin, Madison and is the author of a major divestment kit.

Mohammed Abed stated that the two state solution is “unworkable” Abed stated that Palestinians want full withdrawal, with a shared capital in Jerusalem, and  full right of return. No plan to date ever met these requirements according to him.

He said divestment and Boycott have a successful precedent as they are like the actions against apartheid South Africa. Isolation in cultural spheres and in the intellectual community will help isolate Israel. Jews must be prepared for a future in Palestine. There will be no division of the land...  This vision is integral to the campaign according to Abed. He called for a concrete strategy of engagement of people in political debate that would stress,  the general and cultural exclusion of  the Palestinian people, and the importance of restoring Palestine.

Abed took care to stress that people must understand that divestment and boycott are important tactics to be implemented. According to him, these tactics are a unifying factor for activists. This makes it not just a Palestinian cause, but a cause for all who believe in 'multiculturalism.' This is very attractive to liberals, and engaging for them...

Ali Abunimah asserted that 'We need to seek justice and truth' He gave a rationale for divestment now.  A weak people who are under constant attack by a strong people cannot sit on theirr hands and negotiate land...

Abunimah  offered these 'solutions:'

He urged the use of 'dialogue' groups and boycott campaigns.

Recruiting of students is a must, Abunimah said. Get people off campus involved too. He referenced the Somerville Divestment Campaign. The “grassroots” campaigns are the main wayto get products from Israel booted out of shops. He mentioned that in Montreal, the liquor stores sell wine from the Golan Heights, which is occupied territory. He urges to 'educate' the store owner about the human rights abuses and explain that they are selling a product that pillaged and plunder the people of Palestine.

Abunimah urged to tie in the campaign of the Palestinians to the civil rights movement, and relate it to the struggle of African Americans in the US. This is a legitimate tactic according to him. 'Educate' the people about the history of the movement of civil rights, and tie it in to the doings of Israeli 'thugs.'

He discussed the boycott of Victoria’s Secret, who manufactured a fabric in the Erez Industrial Zone, exploiting cheap labor according to him.  Palestinian workers work under slave conditions according to Abunimah.

He urged Utilize the Women’s movement. Go to the Women’s study departments on campus...

Abunimah told the audience to go to the Black Americans, and to discuss Israel as like apartheid South Africa. He wants to link this campaign to the Sudan, and the campaign to divest from them. He claimed Zionists use Darfur and Sudan as a way of detracting from the issues of Israel and 'historical Palestine.'  Bring up human rights abuses. Take the issues to the university boards and discuss divestment from any company associated with the state of Israel.

...

Abunimah noted that Israelis view themselves as people who can contribute to the international community. If you exclude them, it will have a great psychological impact on them.

Abunimah stressed that Palestinians must be presented as people who want a future base on human rights and justice, and he stated that this constant campaign will have an cumulative effect.

Session III

Nadeem Muaddi, Temple University Students for Justice in Palestine, and Maher Bitar, Georgetown University Students for Justice in Palestine led this session.

...

To spread the message of the suffering, this is a way to use the Church according to them:

Nadeem Muaddi advised to build bridges with the Holy land, and local and religious communities. His strategy is to make the idea of divestment "Mainstream" by showing that it is done by Presbyterians and Anglicans.

“How to do outreach-from what you wear to how you dress”

!. Choose your community-

What Church?

What community?

Find “Divest” versus “non Divest communities

Once a church has divested, it will be easier to discuss. Many churches were going to divest, but Pro Israel pressure caused them to hold off, go to them, and reignite their interest in how important divestment is.

For churches that have divested, go and show support and solidarity to them. Affirm that they made the right decision to divest from Israel.

Go to communities that are not connected to the divestment movement. Expand the movement, educate them, get them to sign on, tell them it coincides with Christian values, and Christian social teachings.

2. Politicize versus non politicize

Some communities are already mobilized, if the Catholic Church is worrying about abortion, and that is their main focus, go elsewhere for now.

3. Large versus small communities

The large are good, but there are many ideas in a large community, it is harder to reach out, and there is less personal connection.

4. Small Communities

This is the most efficient means as they share the same values, and the same ideas. Make yourself part of their one family and target them, with one message, “free Palestine” and human rights abuses.

5. Urban versus Suburban

Same issue as above, go to the smaller towns where more common values are prevalent, rather than large cities. This is the same for the college or university campus, the smaller ones, with a more personal atmosphere.

6. Avoid Politically Driven Groups

Don't bother with politically driven missionary or evangelical groups. Their belief in the messiah and the need for Jews to return to Israel will alienate them from the message.

7. Personal Accessibility

You cannot form relationships with communities overnight, you need to be there, get to know the people, join the community. Show your face; let them see your ideas about Palestine are coming from within, not without. Don’t hit them on the head right away, gain their trust, and then, bring up the issue of Palestinian rights.

8. First Impressions

The way you walk, the ways you talk are all very important

Look Christian”

“Study Christian Culture, understand it, so you can create Christian solidarity to then reach out to Palestinian solidarity.”

Wear conservative dress-do not go with jeans and sneakers. Wear a suit, with a button down shirt, and/or Khakis.

Women should be modest and conservative, with dresses to your knees; however, colored pantyhose are OK.

9. Frame the Issue

How you look and talk are important, Become part of their family, proper grooming is a must, and maintain a friendly and a good social demeanor.” “Become the Ned Flanders (Simpson’s character) of your church”

Avoid profane language. Ban language that does not fall into the values of a Christian home. Otherwise you will not be taken seriously.

Mind your manners – “say “G-d blesses you” when someone sneezes. “Hi, How are you”, and show solidarity, and act “Christian like”.

10. Come bearing Gifts.

Everyone love gifts, and the Holy land is important to all Christians. Get a gift of a rosary, or holy water, and then tell them about the plight of the Christians in Palestine. This is a good way to raise money as well, to sell the items in Church to help the Christians in the holy land feed their children, they will love this, and it brings them closer to the origin on their religion.

11. The Holy Land Foundation

The Holy Land Foundation gives gifts, use them, they have ideas and are helpful.

12. The role of Sex

Use your sexuality to your advantage, join the ladies association

13. Maintain composure

Never be political

Be spiritual

The Christians do not want to hear about the wall or Zionism immediately, get to know them, take your time and then start to 'educate' them.

Tell them about Christian children dying in the Holy land, they need help, the children are starving due to the brutal occupation.

Become a part of the community.

14. When should you raise the issue of Zionism?

Do not talk about Zionism until you are a regular part of the ”family” – you need to gain credibility.

Become spiritual, act as a “Christian to Christian” don’t be political, focus on the Christian aspect of spirituality.

Understand how Christians are connected. Understand how you can help, avoid politics, discuss Christian values, and get into the community before you discuss the issues of Zionism and Palestine.

15. Whom should you contact?
