Controversy over Kansas City Sabeel Conference

By NGO Monitor
October 18, 2006

Sabeel, an NGO which claims to promote non violence, but uses anti-Semitic themes and leads the divestment campaign, will hold a conference in Kansas on October 20-21 entitled "Ending the Silence: Voices from the Holy Land." The conference has caused some controversy due to Sabeel's use of apartheid rhetoric and its director, Naim Ateek's support of a one state solution. Kansas City Jewish Chronicle Editor Rick Hellman criticized the Village Presbyterian Church for hosting Sabeel and will now speak himself "to try and provide balance." Jeff Halper of ICAHD, another NGO that rejects the two-state solution and often tours with Sabeel to promote the Durban Strategy, will also speak at the conference.
