Israel’s 60th Birthday

Israel at 60: Barbra Streisand to open meeting of world leaders by Dave
Barb and Bush

A little more information on the meeting of world leaders celebrating Israel’s “60th Birthday” aka the 60th anniversary of the ethnic cleansing of Palestine.

NOW IT’S official. Barbra Streisand will open the three-day Jerusalem Conference under the patronage of President Shimon Peres on May 13, in celebration of Israel’s 60th anniversary of independence.

Peres announced last year that he would approach Streisand and ask her to sing Avinu Malkeinu at the opening of the conference, but at that time, although there was little doubt that she would not refuse the request of one of her most celebrated admirers, it was not known whether she had any other important event scheduled for that date. Peres told an AIPAC delegation last week that he had spoken to Streisand and that she had agreed to open the conference, which will also be attended by US President George W. Bush who is scheduled to arrive on May 14. The conference, under the umbrella title of “Tomorrow” will focus on the world at large on the first day, the Jewish world on the second day and Israel on the third day. Peres said that he expects some 2,000 people to attend, including numerous world leaders.
