We are under siege from the enemy within, and we cannot stand idly by. When incidents like these happen, where the fifth column targets good decent men, we must stand with them. Read the following act of Islamic/leftist anti-semitism and write a letter in support. Bravo Leroy Allala, who did not cave to Nazi-like pressure.
Standing up for what's good and what's right is our obligation to freedom and justice for all :) Thanks, Leroy!
On March 3rd, I need Atlas readers in the Chicago area to stand up to this century's annihilationists. FDI needs a chairman in Chicago. Who will volunteer?
Palestine Solidarity Group-Chicago will be protesting the Annual International Business Breakfast hosted by Mayor Daley and Chicago Sister Cities International 7:00-8:30am, Wednesday March 3 at Palmer House Hilton, 17 E. Monroe St., Chicago
Heeding the Palestinian call for boycott, divestment and sanctions on Israel to hold it accountable for its human rights violations, the Palestine Solidarity Group-Chicago rejects an official relationship between the City of Chicago and the Municipality of Petach Tikva in Israel. We reject the use of the Sister Cities program to normalize Israeli apartheid and colonization.

Chicago Sister Cities head refuses to discuss Israel’s Guantanamo (hat tip Laura)
Chicago, IL, November 16, 2009 - Five activists with the Palestine Solidarity Group-Chicago (PSG) were removed by security from the office of Leroy Allala, Executive Director of the Chicago Sister Cities International Program, where they demanded a meeting regarding Chicago’s Sister City relationship with Petach Tikva, Israel.
Five months prior, PSG sent a letter to the Chicago Sister Cities International board of directors calling on the committee to drop its relationship with Petach Tikva in support of the Palestinian civil society call for boycott, disinvestment and sanctions on Israel until it ceases its violations of Palestinians’ rights. Repeated attempts to schedule a meeting to highlight PSG’s concerns were ignored.
The first Jewish-only settlement in historic Palestine, part of Petach Tikva’s municipality is located on the lands of Fajja village, ethnically cleansed and destroyed in 1948, when more than 750,000 Palestinians were expelled from their homeland. The city is also the site of a major Israeli military detention center where Palestinians are routinely tortured and detained indefinitely without charge — not unlike the conditions at Guantanamo.
Allala immediately acknowledged that the committee had received the group’s letter and stated that the committee’s board of directors was “very happy” with its relationship with Petach Tikva, and said that there would be no severing of ties with the city. Furthermore, Allala said he was unwilling to listen to PSG’s concerns and would not have or schedule a meeting.
G-d bless Leroy!
