Iran Protest Outside Store

The New Jersey Jewish News reports:

Iran protest held outside Mennonite-affiliated store

Denomination was among the hosts of Ahmadinejad dinner

Some 200 members of the Jewish community demonstrated against a Highland Park store [Ten Thousand Villages] whose parent company was part of a group that hosted Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad that same night.

Ahmadinejad has drawn the wrath of many for his Holocaust denials and his vow to destroy Israel and America.

I know some of the people mentioned in the article (Andrew Getraer, Michael Gordon and Doniel Sherman), and I can now say I am proud to know them. Doniel also spoke in New York City, along with Elie Wiesel and Natan Sharansky.
