A source reports that Chuck Schumer will not speak at the Israel Independence Day pro-settler concert as was reported earlier here. A glossy poster advertising the concert features Schumer’s name prominently and lists him as a speaker. The senator was approached to participate in the main community rally, but never approached about speaking to the settlers. Apparently, the concert organizers were only too willing to appropriate Schumer’s name for their cause.
But one has to ask why no one on Schumer’s staff noticed that the concert website features his smiling visage appearing to endorse the pro-settler hate that will be spewed at this event sponsored by the Hebron Fund, Ateret Cohanim and Arutz Sheva (settler radio). And now that his people know (or will know shortly) will they insist his image be removed?
Other New York Democratic political leaders featured as speakers are Anthony Weiner, Dov Hikind, and Sheldon Silver. I know for a fact that these are Dov’s kind of people. But aren’t Silver and Weiner the least bit embarrassed about consorting with Jewish pogromists?
