Jewish Privilege Conference - Dear Abby + Intl Conference Against Ties With Israel

Libertarian Realist: Dear Abby, As a professional pontificator against Privilege that is white, male, and heterosexual, you certainly have a nose for Privilege - of certain kinds. There is another kind of Privilege as yet unnamed that I think you are especially qualified to help make more visible. I'll get to that in a moment.

But first, I'd like to compliment you on your courage. You've put together an annual White Privilege Conference where you take on the power and privilege of the most powerful and privileged people in the country.

I can only imagine the institutional resistance you face from white-controlled government agencies, universities, and corporations -- at least the ones that aren't funding your conference and paying the travel costs of attendees. I can only imagine the threats and intimidation you must persevere through year after year when white rowdies invoke their Privilege to harass speakers, attendees, and the facility provider in a campaign to shut down your conference. People who believe that their hurt feelings over racially provocative discussions entitle them to shut down such discussions reek of Privilege.

Zionist Conspiracy or Right Tail of the IQ Bell Curve?

Intl Conference Against Ties With Apartheid Israeli Regime
Arab scholars, politicians, as well as students and activists have taken part in an international conference in Tunisian Capital, Tunis, to support the anti-Israeli resistance front, Press TV reports.
The two-day conference kicked off on Tuesday, one week ahead of the third anniversary of the popular revolution in the Arab country.
During the conference, participants shed light on the dangers of normalizing ties with Israel and slammed the human rights abuses conducted by the Zionist regime in the occupied Palestine territories.

“The whole world should be aware that negotiating with Israel and its racist government and extremist settlers is betting on a mirage,” Mustafa Barghouti,  general secretary of the Palestine National Initiative told Press TV.
Some scholars in the conference considered Israel’s crimes against Palestinians a strategy to occupy more lands in order to impose a “Zionist presence” in the whole Arab world, believing the political unrest in the region gives Israel opportunity to commit more crimes in the occupied Palestinian territories.
The scholars also expressed concern over some Arab countries in the region normalizing relations with Israel, saying, “This is a real danger, we are fighting an enemy within.”
On January 4, some 105 Tunisian lawmakers voted in favor of a bill that would criminalize any ties of the country with Israel.
The bill, however, was dropped from the new constitution in the Saturday session of the Constituent Assembly after it failed to secure four additional votes. Tunisia's constitution is scheduled to be ratified by January 14.
