Pro-Palestinian Needed (UPDATE: Found)

The plan: a debate, using unpaid volunteers who can get here (that is, Lolita Bar at 266 Broome St. on the Lower East Side) under their own power/expense on Wed., Aug. 13 (8pm) on the question “Is Israel Oppressing the Palestinians?”

The need: someone to argue “yes” (against blogger Pamela Geller Hannah Meyers) [UPDATE 8/3/08: It will be writer/director/producer Muhammed Rum, creator of the film Jihad!].

I host, Michel Evanchik moderates, you come up with a mere seven minutes or so of the Palestinian case, followed by about an hour of Q&A and back and forth. Everyone has a good time, suffering in the Middle East notwithstanding. Will you volunteer to be our Palestinian defense force — and preferably let me know before 10pm Sunday?
