In the US, one of the most effective advocates for peace and justice in Palestine is Alison Weir of If Americans Knew (IAK).  We Hold These Truths founder, Chuck Carlson, and members discuss the recent character assassination attacks on Alison Weir, to discredit her and her organization, by the leaders of the pro-Palestinian group, Jewish Voice for Peace, for an alleged offense from five years ago.  Also, a follow-up inquisition by the US Campaign to End the Israeli Occupation was sent to Alison Weir.  Chuck Carlson discusses the use of gatekeepers from his personal experiences that included his removal from the program at a pro-Palestinian, national student group meeting at Duke University in 2004, where he was to speak on Christian Zionism.  He was prevented from speaking by actions of the ADL.  References mentioned in podcast:  IAK-JVPIAK-US CampaignIAK open letter to JVP & USC Support petition for Alison Weir, Gilad Atzmon blogs:"The Jewish Solidarity Spin," "JVP, Alison Weir & the Hatred of the White," and "How the Israeli Government Subverted the Solidarity Movement."
