The Chamber, led by Duvi Honig, was one of several groups that protested the event, scheduled for last month, which featured Rashida Tlaib.

On Thursday Tlaib was interviewed on Al Jazeera, and expressed her frustration with the cancellation of the pro Hamas event scheduled to take place at a Hilton Hotel, citing the influence and power exerted by the Orthodox Jewish Chamber of Commerce on the Hilton forcing its cancellation. She accused the Chamber of using its connections and influential leverage to silence pro-Palestinian voices and suppress the discussion of Palestinian rights.

Tlaib, herself a Palestinian, was scheduled to be the main speaker at the conference, which was being hosted by the US Campaign for Palestinian Rights in Houston. However, the event was abruptly cancelled after pressure from the Orthodox Jewish Chamber of Commerce, among others, leading to Tlaib’s strong condemnation of the decision.

The cancellation of the event has been hailed as a victory for the Chamber and its ability to exert influence.

Hilton Houston Post Oak by the Galleria backed out of hosting the “Seize the Moment US Campaign for Palestinian Rights National Conference” planned for October 27 – 29

Also scheduled to appear were Women’s March leader Linda Sarsour and leftist academic Marc Lamont Hill. Tlaib and Hill have declared support for the destruction of the state of Israel, saying “From the river to the sea, Palestine will be free.”

The Chamber and Honig specifically has been influential in combating antisemitism before. Last month the Chamber announced that it ended its boycott of Starbucks over an anti-Israel employee union.

Amazingly, founder Howard Schultz personally called Mr. Honig and asked him to rescind a scathing op-ed which was published on VINnews.

After the impact of the Chamber’s Starbucks boycott announcement stating “Drinking a cup of Starbucks is Drinking a Cup of Jewish Blood”, Schultz reached out to Duvi to discuss his ongoing support for Israel and his strong condemnation of the 300 union stores and its 3000 employees who support Hamas.

These conferences are NOT about Palestinian rights. They about anti-Israel and anti-Jewish hate. These events incite violence and attacks against Jews. But none of these evil witches will accept responsibility. This is not about First Amendment rights. It is about inciting violence. Islam thrives on its hate and terror. And these loud mouths are pushing that agenda. Anything that leads to their silence is progress.

Rashida Tlaib will be the majority of America if we keep letting Muslims into this country. Lebanon should serve as a warning to the America.

Wow. VIN removed any comment that criticized Honig and his echo chamber. VIN is a shill for Honig.
I think it’s long past time to leave VIN. Let’s see what’s on YWN.
