Dear Lily Haskell





Dear Lily,

How long has it been? How many months till last I saw you?? Why haven't I seen you at anti-Israel events? Are you hiding in the shadows, avoiding public contact at all cost? Are you scheming away towards some nefarious end? Wherever you are, I want you to know that I'll be waiting. Waiting. For every event that you miss, another chance to confront you about your blind hatred is lost.

If only we could talk over coffee or a beer, perhaps you'd see that we both want the same thing: peace, and an end to prejudice on both sides (well, maybe I just want the second part). You'd finally understand that I want Palestinians to live side-by-side with Israelis, espousing nothing but a love of life. A place where both peoples have stable jobs, send their kids to safe schools, and can walk down the street safely, without molestation by suicide bombers/assassins/thugs and burdensome IDF checkpoints. Wouldn't that be wonderful? I think it would be, and it's what I want for Israel and the Palestinians.

However, you tend to operate like Hamas does and until you end that pattern of behavior there can be no peace. Blind hatred serves no one.

Perhaps one day you'll be honest with yourself and admit that murdering Jews is anathema to peace. Insisting that Israel just "go away" has no basis in reality.

Remember Lily, where there is life, there is hope.


Sincerely,
Anarcho Zionist

Pro-Peace, Pro-Israel, Pro-love.

******
Lily Haskell aka Elizabeth Haskell aka Lily (Elizabeth) Aida Haskell is a member of AROC, Arab Resource and Organizing Center, as well as a former intern of the National Lawyers Guild/San Francisco. On December 9, 2008, at an anti-Israel rally/AIPAC dinner, with use of a bullhorn, Lily led this vile chant:

"Israel Supporters watch your backs, or we'll push you down a shaft!"


Yes, that's what she belted out. She was referring to the untimely death of our friend, brother, and pro-Israel advocate, Dan Kliman.

And yet, as someone who is supports peace, love and Israel, a hand must be extended to help those filled with so much hate and prejudice, like Lily Haskell. Hence, the open letter to her.

Shalom.

Golly she looks sweet and sensitive in those photos.

So very very different from when she was leading the chants threatening to throw us down elevator shafts outside of the Aipac meeting in 2008. She was foaming at the mouth then. Red faced and screeching.

Maybe she's been prescribed medication since then?

Or she's finally getting laid.

Lily getting laid?
Nah.
Most people in America frown on beastiality

Oh come now, she's actually quite presentable. When she isn't screaming murderous threats, even lovely. Just look at that high forehead, and those soft baby browns!
In the second photo, she even looks positively introspective, and capable of emotion.

Errrm, let's not go overboard, shall we?

She actuall looks a little slackjawed in that second photo. The top photo shows more character.

Say what you will, but I find her frizzy hair to be a turn on.

You know Sally, you're onto something there. I just find Arab women to be beautiful creatures. It's a shame that Lily is a bigot. I like her passion, not her politics.
