The person moderating the freak show, was none other than ‘Autumn’ Räsänen (a dead ringer for one of Dr.Seuss’ truffula trees).
FINNISH GOVERNMENT FUNDS ANTI-ISRAEL ”PEACE” FORUM IN HELSINKI UNIVERSITY FOR AMIRA HASS AND JAMAL ZAHALKA TO SPREAD THEIR HATE
Last night I attended a ”Peace Forum” at the University of Helsinki, funded by the Finnish taxpayer through the highly corrupted Finnish Ministry of Culture, in conjunction with ICAHD, a radical Leftist NGO that promotes the end to the Jewish state.
The entire event was done with the full intention of smearing Israel from beginning to end, otherwise why invite two well known and very marginalized speakers known for their fringe of fringe views?
The first speaker was supposed ‘moderate’ ME analyst (yes, he passes himself off as an expert), Hannu Juusola, who in comparison to the other two speakers, was in fact more moderate, but not in a normal standard. This shows how of balanced the night was. He gave his version of events of the past decade or so, missed chances and a dismal future, but of course, Israel supposedly holds all of the trump cards.
Then came Amira Hass:
A hack journalist for the Haha-haaretz (post-Zionist rag with no Israeli subscribers), she launched into attacking Israel for vindictively assaulting the Arabs over the past 70 years, ”every single Palestinian (Arab) in the world has been victimized by Israel’s policies”. Israel was supposedly responsible for state terror, cruel policies of marginalization, departmentalization, and apartheid policies that were far more worse than was practised in S.Africa.
That would come as a surprise to this MP in the S.African parliament, Kenneth Meshoe :
Then came Jamal Zahalka:
He only had one sound level, belching loud. I was relieved that I took to the third row of seats, for spittle was clearly reaching the first two. He picked up where Hass left off. ”Apartheid under S.Africa was more preferable to what the Arabs were/are suffering under Israeli hegemony”. He also championed the notion that Israeli leaders, and those working directly under them, should be held by the international community for war crimes.
While both were polished speakers, knowing how to work the clapping seal crowd, Zahalka was the more dangerous of the two. Using a twisted sense of logic, he very cunningly cast Israeli democracy into doubt, without someone debating him, his evil descriptions and insinuations and full reversal of reality, hit home with many in the room.
In the Q&A section of the venue, I got a chance to take them on, as well as a couple more people who came to challenge the speakers’ views. Things got somewhat restless after a few (and justifiably) raised their voices in protest to the absurdities being hurled from the podium, and were escorted out. The one who got the last word was ”Mr.Truffula”:
In response to my question/statement and another person’s along the same line, he stated that ”The Israeli point of view is the majority one heard in the media, this forum corrects that imbalance”. That’s the absurd logic used, as an excuse, not to have mainstream Israeli voices speak at these forums. We can all see through the lame statement, but how about the Finnish government, what’s their excuse?
Here is a video from the forum at the Helsinki University.
