Israel Lobby and American Policy PART 6 2019 “Paul Noursi, James Metz, Kathy Drinkard”
National Press Club, Washington, DC
March 22, 2019

Paul Noursi
“What is the Virginia Coalition for Human Rights?”

The Virginia Coalition for Human Rights is a broad coalition representing 17 organizations and over 8,000 Virginians. How and why have they coalesced around the belief that the Israel-Palestine conflict is a human rights issue that requires an open and free debate? What VCHR programs advance those beliefs? What Israel lobby efforts have been made to forestall this debate by placing limitations on free speech, commerce and academic freedom in the commonwealth?

James Metz
“Why VCHR is taking on the Virginia Israel Advisory Board”

VCHR is leading a campaign in Virginia to defund a government entity called the Virginia Israel Advisory Board (VIAB). What is VIAB? When was it formed? Who are VIAB’s executives? Why does VIAB seek economic opportunities for Israel outside the commonwealth’s economic development agency? How transparent is VIAB, and how easy is it to obtain information about its activities? Why are VIAB’s leadership and supporting Israel advocacy organizations using it as a platform against BDS? What troubling activities has VCHR uncovered about VIAB? What is VCHR doing to dissolve VIAB?

Kathy Drinkard
“Preventing Israel affinity organizations from politicizing K-12 textbooks”

Why is VCHR leading a campaign in Virginia to prevent Israel affinity organizations from rewriting K-12 textbooks? What kinds of changes have these groups submitted to the Department of Education and textbook publishers, and were they public knowledge? What accuracy and politicization issues do the changes present? What are the changes supposed to accomplish? What organizations backed the proposed changes? Is this a problem only in Virginia or nationally? What is VCHR doing to ensure a “balanced presentation of facts that represent reality”?
