Kudos to my AFDI/SIOA colleague Pamela Geller for spearheading this drive against Palestinian jihad propaganda in Alameda County, California: “AFDI/SIOA VICTORY! Palestinian Proclamation Day Withdrawn in Alameda County, Calif,” at Atlas Shrugs, June 5:
Over the past weekend, I called on Atlasians, SIOA members and AFDI activists to oppose “Palestinian” Proclamation Day in Alameda County, California.
The Supervisors of Alameda County intended to recognize a day for
“Palestinians” (euphemism for Jew-hater), beginning today, June 5th,
Atlas reader Joe Gelman in the comments section wrote, “The Alameda
county Supervisors pulled the resolution, and the Pali Lobbyists went
berserk. ‘Its islamophobia!’ ‘Its the Zionist lobby!’ ‘its racism!'”
Yes, the haters blame Atlas. 🙂
Pro-Israel Bay bloggers have this:

“We would like to update you on the status of Palestinian
Proclamation Day in Alameda County, scheduled for tomorrow June 5th,
2012. We have been informed as of late this Monday morning that the
issuing of the proclamation was pulled from the Board of Supervisors”
agenda by President Nate Miley.Supervisors were heavily lobbied by the
racist rhetoric that is perpetuated through internet blogging, and specifically politicized the event on the following link:http://atlasshrugs2000.typepad.com/atlas_shrugs/2012/06/oppose-palestinian-proclamation-day-in-alameda-county-calif-tuesday.html.
Please be advised that this proclamation was and remains a statement to
promote Palestinian culture and heritage. We plan to be there to share concerns during public input time. Barbara Lee and Pete Stark’s office
have issued a certificate of special congressional recognition and
Supervisor Wilma Chan is issuing a commendation for Palestinian cultural
Apparently in the “activist to English” dictionary:
“heavily lobbied by the racist rhetoric that is perpetuated through
internet blogging” can be roughly translated as “grassroots letter writing campaign”.
Do you care about tolerance and diversity? Show at at 10:45 am in the Alameda County Administration Building, 1221 Oak Street,
Oakland. Lets let the Alameda county Supervisors know that they can
celebrate Palestinian culture without denying the heritage of others in
