This weekend is the "Palestinians Abroad" conference in Istanbul. About 4000 people attended the first day's ceremony.

The PLO has been very concerned about this conference because it was not involved. Sure enough, while the point of the conference is "return," the speakers have attacked the PLO more than Israel, based on the tweets coming from the conference. The PLO pretends to represent them and they do not feel that they are represented at all.

Arabic tweets of the speech of another official, Mohsen Salah, has him saying "Depriving the Palestinians out of the opportunity to participate in the Palestinian decision is a crime against the entire people" and "No one can monopolize the national decision."

Not surprisingly, the mainstream Palestinian press is ignoring this conference. The PLO's Saeb Erekat instead is attending that other pro-Arab conference, the J-Street Conference, this weekend.

We also learn some wonderful facts from the Istanbul conference, like this one:

7 million!

And they all want to live in Tel Aviv! (I'm sorry, "Tel al-Rabi," the wonderful and mythical Arab metropolis that was taken over by the Jews.)

We have lots of ideas, but we need more resources to be even more effective. Please donate today to help get the message out and to help defend Israel.
