This afternoon, Jews Say No! and several other cool orgs will be leading a demonstration outside the baseball commissioner’s office in New York to protest the fact that later this week, the Mets are planning to host a fundraiser for the illegal colonists of Hebron at Citi Field. Demonstration: 12:30-1:30, 245 Park Avenue, between 46/47th. Code Pink is sure to have some imaginative signs.
The colonists "have the funding, the families, and the guns," says Micha Kurz of Grassroots Jerusalem. Evidently they even have Obama. And the Law of Return, too. What do we have? We have Americans of common sense, and over 40 years of U.N. resolutions, and our president’s best wishes, if not his willpower.
I went to the Hebron Fund dinner last year. The supporters tend to be religious Jews who think the bible gives them a deed to the Hebron hills. Here are folks you can call to complain about American complicity in the landgrab.
