NCYI Calls Decision To Disinvite Palin From Iran Rally A Serious Mistake

National Council of Young Israel President Shlomo Z. Mostofsky, Esq., made the following statement today concerning the decision to “disinvite” Republican Vice Presidential candidate Sarah Palin from the “The Rally to Stop Iran Now:”

“The National Council of Young Israel is deeply disturbed by the decision to rescind the invitation that had been extended to Alaska Governor and Vice Presidential candidate Sarah Plain to participate in “The Rally to Stop Iran Now.”

The decision to “de-politicize” the event by repealing Governor Palin’s invitation had the opposite effect of what was intended. Instead of focusing on denouncing Iranian President Ahmadinejad and expressing our collective outrage at his vow to obliterate the State of Israel, we now find ourselves in the midst of a political squabble that was initiated due to an ill advised decision.
