Palestine is Not for Sale!
While the Free Palestine Alliance (FPA) condemns 
in the strongest possible terms the wholesale of 
Palestine at the upcoming Annapolis Conference; 
we recognize well that condemnation alone is no 
longer of any real value.  The time is now for a 
clear alternative to emerge in place of this hopelessly corrupt leadership.

Annapolis, like Camp David, Madrid and Oslo 
before, is the natural outcome to the path of 
surrender that Abbas and others have 
taken.  Although this upcoming conference itself 
may not be a terminal one, it is nonetheless a 
stepping stone to the gallows, if we allow it, 
where Palestine is intended for execution by the 
United States and Israel in full collaboration 
with their Arab and Palestinian functionary minions.

We have warned before that we can no longer trust 
this treasonous leadership.  Starting with Abbas 
and passing through Abed Rabbo, Dahlan, Mansour, 
Malki, Irakat, Qurei, and a host of others too 
long to be named here, the US government has now 
added yet another parasitic group of functionary 
Arabs that can only survive if they deliver the 
defeat of Palestine on a silver platter.

As was the case following the Nakba of 1948, when 
the Palestinian movement was reclaimed from the 
corrupt minions of Britain and the United States, 
and pan-Arabism emerged in opposition to despotic 
monarchs and colonial rule, it is once again our 
role to put an end to this ongoing charade of shame.

"Palestine is Not for Sale", we must all announce 
loud and clear.  And all those participating in 
its butchery must be tried for their crimes, despite the passage of time.

At this critical stage, the Palestinian people 
must openly challenge the false claim of 
representation by Abbas and his minions.  We must 
organize away from all those providing cover and 
legitimacy for this path of surrender.  We must 
challenge them wherever they are - in every 
living room, in every mosque and church, and in 
every political setting.  No one should be able 
to pull the wool in front of our eyes anymore by 
using the old cliché of "unity".  There can be no 
unity with those defending treason.  And 
certainly there can be no unity with those 
extinguishing our existence and burying alive our history.

Treason and surrender can never be acceptable 
alternatives to our people.  Never!

What we need now is a popular and principled 
unity in the form of a front to oppose this path 
to disaster.  This is the time to organize for a 
long term political alternative and strategy, 
starting from every camp, town, and community in 
Palestine and throughout exile.  There are 
hundreds of thousands of trade unionists, 
political organizers, professionals, and 
activists with decades of experience who have 
arrived at the same conclusion 
worldwide.  Countless meetings are being held in 
every corner of this globe where our people are 
systematically rejecting the treason of this 
corrupt and imposed leadership.  A popular and 
democratic alternative is, therefore, inevitable, and the time is now.

Meanwhile, it is our duty here in the US to 
expose the likes of Mansour, Asali, Ibish and so 
many others like them who are benefiting from 
this silent butchery.  If we accept treason and 
surrender as a "difference in opinion", and give 
cover and legitimacy to institutions and 
organizations that serve first and foremost the 
interest of corrupt despotic regimes, we would be 
making a mistake of historical proportions.

Enough is enough!  This absurdity must stop.

It is time for an alternative to emerge.  Details 
of the Los Angeles meeting will be announced soon.
