The Hall Of The Goblin King ^ | 18 April, 2007 | Steg

Posted on 04/22/2007 6:28:08 PM PDT by Salem

Yesterday, Rav Avi Weiss and the Jewish activist organization he founded, AMCHA: the Coalition for Jewish Concerns, coordinated a civil disobedience protest at the United Nations.

Around 50 rabbis and rabbinical students, as well as a lay communal leader or few, participated in the protest. They prepared themselves in a staging area near the Iranian Mission to the UN — putting on talleisim and distributing signs — and after a few short speeches and rounds of slogan-shouting, they marched, singing ‘Am Yisra’eil Hhai, to the steps that go down past the Isaiah Wall across the street from the UN buildings.

"It's a serious matter to step beyond the line, to violate the law. But we must do so as a moral outcry to the world that it can't be business as usual. The time has come to expel Iran from the United Nations."

While I heartily sympathize with the anti-Iranian sentiments of these rabbis I'd far rather see protests demanding U.S. pull out of the UN than protests demanding the expulsion of any one member. The organization is a criminal one, and we should have no part of it.

In another article on this matter, the point made about the protest was the “UNUSUAL” unity of the Rabbis.

This is the “Whole” Point. Such unity shows there is major concern, the Iranian situation is a volatile and imminent situation that must be taken care of now.

Here’s part of the excerpt:
In an unusual show of unity, 22 Jewish leaders — Orthodox, Conservative and Reform — are briefly jailed for anti-Iran protest outside the UN.

Rabbi Avi Weiss is this generation’s Rabbi Kahane. I mean this with the utmost respect for Rabbi Kahane and what he sacrificed for Klal Yisrael.
