Disinvitation of Sarah Palin: A Disgrace! / Music from Ishy Levi /Comments on election 2008

Sarah Palin was disinvited from a rally on Monday against Ahmadinejad that was sponsored by major Jewish organisations in New York. Common decency restricts "disinvitations" to those who have committed some serious offense that was not known or taken into account at the time the invitation was issued. Sarah Palin does not fit into this narrow category.

There is a basic level of courtesy owed to a guest. Publicly showing disrespect to an invited guest is a serious offense against Jewish law. Sarah Palin was shown great disrespect for no legitimate reason. The embarrassment this causes me as a Jew goes beyond my support for McCain and Palin.

My only consolation in this entire sorry episode is that it reduces the respect accorded organisations that have long been unworthy of any respect. There are Jews in public life in New York who put truth and justice ahead of political expediency. I hope such people will step up to the plate and speak for the disenfranchised majority
How many Jews fled for their lives from Arab countries in 1948 and after? How many are still in refugee camps? Even though we were stripped of our wealth in Arab countries, we moved on and built a new life and country. Why there are still Arab Muslim refugees from sixty years ago says something about the places to where they fled. It says nothing about Israel. All of the money spent trying to destroy Israel could have been used to help these people.

The refugees from Arab countries brought with them some great music. Today's video is from Ishy Levi, an Israeli singer who sings in an "oriental" style.

Christopher Dodd, D-Conn., the powerful chairman of the Senate banking committee. Dodd was first elected to the Senate in 1980.”

The implications of this breaking story are particularly dire for the Obama campaign.
