The Pulitzer Prize winning author and civil rights icon, Alice Walker,
of all people, has come under attack from the Zionist Lobby for being
antisemitic because of her outspoken defense of the Palestinian People
as they face Israeli Military occupation. This, of course, is the modus
operandi of the Israeli Hasbara. To them, any criticism of Israel is per
se antisemitic. But Alice Walker? How desperate do you have to be to
attack a human rights warrior of such distinction? ... Today we feature a
forum put together by a remarkable group that goes by the name "Stand
with Alice Walker." It consists of her longtime friend Jeff Mackler,
Palestinian author Susan Abulhawa, the intrepid US journalist Chris
Hedges, and Alice Walker herself.
