( Carl) Pink Floyd guitarist Roger Waters, who has compared Israel to Nazis and who has been labeled an anti-Semite by the Anti-Defamation League, was to appear at the 92nd Street Y in Manhattan on April 30 to ‘look back on his career.’ The Y receives $800,000 annually from the Jewish Federation – i.e. from Jewish communal funds. Waters is also a leader in the BDS (boycott, divest, sanction) movement against Israel, and has called for boycotting Israel until it commits suicide (even though he himself has come here several times to play concerts and make money). This came in an email from JCC(WATCH)

Once again there are suspicious goings on at the JCC in Manhattan
in cahoots with the radical Leftists, anti-Israel New Israel Fund. But this time the Jewish Agency is a co-sponsor, and the program has been going on for three years. A press release from JCC Watch.
THE JEWISH AGENCY (MAKOM)
PARTNERED WITH AND SPONSORED
ANTI-ISRAEL EVENT WITH NEW ISRAEL FUND
FOR PAST THREE YEARS
JCCWatch.org‘s founder, Richard Allen, calling “Love Hate and the Jewish State 4.0: Airing the Dirty Laundry” a “bash-Israel event,” stated that it “trains the younger Jewish generation to hate the Jewish state. There is nothing at all positive being taught at these political bash-Israel sessions. In fact, the program might be better called ‘Love to Hate the Jewish State 4.0.’” He went on to condemn the JCC in Manhattan, a beneficiary of the UJA-Federation of New York, for hosting yet another event put on by groups that fund and support the Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions (BDS) movement against Israel. “There are clearly elements within the American arm of the Jewish Agency (MAKOM) that have established links to these nefarious organizations.”
“The Jewish Agency (MAKOM) and the JCC in Manhattan should not be utilized as a sponsor or a gathering place for those who work to delegitimize Israel,” Allen continued.“NGO-Monitor has proven that, for some time now, the New Israel Fund has directly funded groups that support the Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions movement against Israel. J Street, the George Soros-funded group, has also partnered with efforts to further the insidious BDS movement.
“We once again call on the JCC in Manhattan’s board of directors to establish firm and serious guidelines to prevent the JCC in Manhattan from becoming a hotbed of bash Israel activities. The Jewish Agency must also supervise their American arm, MAKOM, and establish better oversight to prevent sponsorships of anti-Israel activities.”

that is the last time I ever go to Makom. How come liberal parties are so uptight?
