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.
“While they’re having dinner, we are here protesting,” Jeffrey Schreiber of Highland Park told NJJN. “We want people to know that if they buy from this store they are buying Mahmoud Ahmadinejad dinner.”
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.
