According to the Israeli press, Oprah is going to Israel for a “solidarity” visit.
Coming from someone like Oprah, she should be sympathizing with the
oppressed and above all, not showing solidarity with a racist state.
Most surprising is that the word “apartheid” has no meaning for her or
Wiesel called on Winfrey to visit Israel, where “the major war against terror is currently taking place.”
in her speech, Winfrey said she sympathized with the suffering of
the people of Israel, and that she intended to accept Wiesel’s
invitation and come with him to Israel.
Israel’s UN Ambassador Danny Gillerman, who attended the event, said
that a visit of a figure with such influence on the international media
could help bring an end to the indifference towards the terror threat
faced by Israelis. (Source: YNet)
It is sad to believe that Oprah believed these Zionist lies about
fighting terror. Someone needs to tell her that Israel is the terrorist
state which kills the Palestinian children everyday and commit war
crimes every sunrise and that Palestinians are not terrorists but
freedom fighter struggling for decades to return their stolen lands and
live in peace.
Please write to her and send whatever information you can including reports from human rights organizations (Example: Yesterday’s Amnesty report)
and/or articles. Even recommendations for books that might educate her.
I’m sure she will change her mind if she knows more about the racist
state she intend to visit.

Also, you can send your ideas in for a future show, which might be
about the suffering of the Palestinians, and their Nakba. This is a
page where there are a few email addresses:
I always knew some underhanded shit was up with that pseudo-humanitarian Eli Wiesel. Since I saw him on Oprah once with a show covering the holocaust and his campaign to end the suffering of the people of Darfur, I was wondering… why the hell can’t he see through the blatant oppression happening in Israel. Blatant Segregation and Inequality and yet he’s supporting the state wholeheartedly while shifting focus to other lands, which I think is a deliberate attampt to change the media agenda away from Palestinian suffering, not that other conflicts are any less deserving of coverage. But this media and PR war is getting sickening.
I don’t like Oprah much, but many people follow her show religiously… for someone like her not to see the disconnect here is very disturbing. I seriously think that her allegiance is to her show and her making a good appearance rather than to any true moral values. So if you like the Oprah show, please write to her and let her know that this is just wrong and she should think about it seriously.
