Jewish group sues area evangelist

$9 million suit says K.A. Paul's aid agency violated a contract to fly members to Israel
By ALLAN TURNER
Copyright 2005 Houston Chronicle

Huffman evangelist K.A. Paul, who recently headed a controversial mission to help tsunami victims, is being sued for more than $9 million by a Jewish group in Los Angeles.

The lawsuit alleges that Paul's Global Peace Initiative, a humanitarian aid organization, had agreed to fly the group to Poland for the 60th anniversary of Auschwitz's liberation, then to Tel Aviv for vacation. But when the 92 travelers, members of Friends of the Israel Defense Forces, arrived at Los Angeles International Airport on June 18, the lawsuit contends, Global Peace Initiative officials advised them they could either remain in Poland, fly to Syria or cancel the trip.

Faced with such "unrealistic and unreasonable alternatives," the lawsuit said, the travelers opted to stay at home.

Their lawsuit alleges "the defendants intended to use the plaintiff's money to repair and refurbish their aircraft so as to carry out their so-called peace mission to such hostile countries as Syria, Libya, Iran and Sudan and find some pretext to cause plaintiff to cancel its trip."

1. When in Auschwitz they should create a Prescott Bush Memorial
I am tired of that bastard not being mentioned in every sentence dealing with Auschwitz. He was not punished. Look at what his offspring have done...

2. I am all for reminding and educating people
about Americans and others who enabled the Nazi war machine. But not in Auschwitz or on the site of any other concentration camp.

3. It would be shocking and distasteful. Just what you need to get attention
The media would cover it if you put up a plaque declaring something like, "This gas chamber donated by The Bush Family in honor of Prescott Bush's service to The Third Reich."

6. Just putting up a plaque saying
"This gas chamber donated by The Bush Family in honor of Prescott Bush's service to The Third Reich."

Would shock enough people to gain this attention. I really feel from the bottom of my heart that Auschwitz and other camps are just simply not the place for it.

4. So these people are crabby they didn't get a vacation to Israel
because the group decided aiding tsunami victims was more important? Tough cookies for them. Hope their lawsuit's kicked out of court.

5. No, they're alleging that the good Reverend took their money and used
it for his own self. Nothing to do with the tsunami.
