Margaret Stephens (a.k.a. Margaret Phillips)

  • Publisher of the socialist, anti-Israel newsletter _Northwest Ethnic Voice_
  • Affiliated with the Palestine Children’s Welfare Fund

Margaret Stephens (a.k.a. Margaret Phillips), publishes the Northwest Ethnic Voice, an Oregonian newsletter that pushes an anti-Israel, Socialist agenda. The newsletter has endorsed the group International ANSWER (Act Now to Stop War and End Racism), an anti-war coalition that has sponsored many massive anti-war demonstrations across the United States and around the world; ANSWER is closely affiliated with the Communist organization Workers World Party (WWP). The Northwest Ethnic Voice also promotes, a radical website that features anti-Israel poems and petitions, along with favorable depictions of terrorists, including one of Osama bin Laden. In addition to her publishing duties, Stephens works with The Palestine Children’s Welfare Fund (PCWF), an advocacy group whose expressed goal is “to improve the living standards of the children of Palestine in the refugee camps inside Palestine.” In reality, however, the PCFW engages in and promotes anti-Israeli hatred through its Internet discussion board, the contests it sponsors, and its affiliations with politically motivated, pro-Palestinian-militant groups.
