HILTON G.M. REFUSES TO ALLOW COUNTER-TERROR GROUP TO PROTEST OUTSIDE HOTEL

HOTEL, INSTEAD, OPENS DOORS TO HAMAS FRONT

(Coral Springs, FL) Americans Against Hate (AAH) will be leading a protest against Congressman Joe Sestak's appearance at the First Annual Banquet for the Philadelphia office of CAIR, tomorrow, Saturday, April 7, 2007. Americans Against Hate feels it inappropriate and offensive for a sitting United States Representative to be participating in a function sponsored by a group with direct ties to Hamas.

AAH Chairman Joe Kaufman contacted the Hilton Philadelphia City Ave to ask if it would kindly allow AAH to hold a peaceful protest outside the hotel. Kaufman received an e-mail, in response to his inquiry, from the General Manager of the Hotel, Eric C. Davies. In it, Davies adamantly stated, "We will NOT allow you to hold any protest in front or anywhere near our hotel."

After receiving the e-mail, Kaufman contacted the Philadelphia Police Department to make sure that the protesters were allowed to be in an area outside the hotel. Kaufman was assured that the group was permitted to do so and that there would be a team of officers on hand for the entirety of the protest for the benefit of all involved.

In a follow-up e-mail sent by Kaufman to Davies, Kaufman stated, "It is a shame that you have refused to allow our small counter-terrorism group to hold a peaceful protest outside of your hotel, while at the same time, you are allowing an organization with numerous terrorism ties to speak inside your institution. It is that type of backwards attitude that led us to 9/11, and unfortunately, in the five-plus years since, we have not learned our lesson."

Kaufman continued, "You will certainly not stop our protest from happening. It will go on as planned, and it will take place in an area that is allowable by law and not on your property, to suffice at least half your wishes."

Protest details:
  • Day / Time: Saturday, April 7, 2007, 5:15 PM - 7:15 PM
  • Location: Outside the Hilton Philadelphia City Ave, at 4200 City Line Ave.
  • There will be refreshments
  • Joe Kaufman will be giving his speech at 6:15
