595 Market St.
(at 2nd St; near Montgomery BART)
Daniel Pipes, Director of the "Middle East Forum," will be giving a speech at the Commonwealth Club on the Palestine/Israel Conflict.
Pipes is well-known for his virulent anti-Arab and anti-Muslim rhetoric, his staunch support of Israel and it's occupation and ethnic cleansing of Palestinians, and a primary advocate for the war on Iraq.
Join us to demonstrate our opposition to giving any platform to racist, Islamophobic war-mongerers!
Bring bullhorns, pots and pans, and other noisemakers! Drown out Pipes' talk!
The talk will be in the Commonwealth Club office, on the 2nd Floor of 595 Market St. It is free for Club members and $18 for non-members. The 6pm talk is preceded by a reception at 5:30pm.
Choice quotes from Daniel Pipes:
"Western European societies are unprepared for the massive immigration of brown-skinned peoples cooking strange foods and maintaining different standards of hygiene...All immigrants bring exotic customs and attitudes, but Muslim customs are more troublesome than most." (National Review)
"Palestinians are a miserable people...and they deserve to be." (Washington Report on Middle East Affairs)
