"It is not a question of free speech. Olmert is not someone with controversial views that people just don't want to listen to. He is someone who is accused of committing serious war crimes and should not be given a platform and should not be allowed to profit. Olmert is actually being paid speaking fees of $50,000 and $70,000 for each of these appearances. So he is actually profiting for his notoriety while the wounds of his victims are still bleeding literally. They are children who were burned by white phosphorus from his attack on Gaza, whose wounds have not healed 9 months later. So it is simply outrageous that he would be traveling around the United States and profiting, making enormous amounts of money while the mechanisms of international justice are being ignored."

- Ali Abunimah on the former Israeli Prime Minister Ehud Olmert's speaking tour of the USA.

"...it is undeniable that the Palestinian people - Muslims and Christians - have suffered in pursuit of a homeland. For more than sixty years they have endured the pain of dislocation. Many wait in refugee camps in the West Bank, Gaza, and neighboring lands for a life of peace and security that they have never been able to lead. They endure the daily humiliations - large and small - that come with occupation. So let there be no doubt: the situation for the Palestinian people is intolerable. America will not turn our backs on the legitimate Palestinian aspiration for dignity, opportunity, and a state of their own..."

The subject is the mass irradiation of hundreds of thousands of young Israeli immigrants from Middle Eastern countries -- Sephardim, as they are called today.
