Birds of a feather. Al Awda hosts Carlos Latuff. JVP promotes it.

Al Awda, the Palestine Right to Return Coalition, is not a peace group.  The extremist group does not accept the existence of Israel within any border, promotes intolerance, rationalizes violence, and has pushed conspiracy theories and anti-Semitic tropes to its followers.

According to the venerable Anti-Defamation league (ADL), Al Awda has openly supported terrorist groups, writing that 

"At least five communiques from the PFLP including one in conjunction with the Al -Aqsa Martyrs Brigade, and one joint statement with Hamas were distributed via Al-Awda's main listserve. Nearly all of the communiques expressed support for terrorist activity, extolling "martyrs", encouraging the "resistance" and detailing violence against Israeli troops"

Its co-founder Zahi Damuni has called for "armed struggle" against Israel, stating that the  "armed Palestinian resistance must react in the middle of Tel Aviv".  

Its not surprising that controversial San Francisco State Professor Rabab Abduhadi  would appear at a terror-enabling gala.   Its not surprising that the gala would feature the notoriously anti-Semitic , holocaust denying cartoonist  Carlos Latuff

And its also not surprising that Jewish Voice for Peace would endorsed and promote this event on their Facebook page.
The only thing that is surprising is that anyone, anywhere still believes that JVP is a progressive peace group.

I note that these people are constantly holding fund raisers. Muslim leaders have time to do little else.
