Dear Pro-Israel Bay Bloggers, kind regards from Vancouver Canada. As you might know, 'sabeel' anti-Israel manifestation is happening in our city, April 23~25. It will feature the who's who of anti-Israeli zealots, including the daughter of PFLP 'leader' Jarrar, founder of 'sabeel', JVP, etc...
Many diverse groups and individuals will be protesting this manifestation. We'd like to invite you to do the same. Vancouver is a short 1.5 hour flight from the Bay Area, with frequent flights. As well, about a 14 hour drive. Currently, the US Dollar gets you about 1.30 Canadian Dollars, and not to mention, Vancouver, like SFO, is a very beautiful city. We'd love to see you here, and feel free to contact if you'd like any information or more details.
Take care!
