Never Thought I'd Say This: Today, I'm a Mets Fan
Despite what may have happened in 1969, I am now proud to be a Mets fan (for a few days anyways).
Eleven organizations from the US and Israel have tried to persuade the New York Mets to cancel a November 21st dinner at the Caesars Club at Citi Field for the Brooklyn-based Hebron Fund. The dinner is a fundraiser for the Jewish community in the city of Chevron.
In a letter sent to the Mets on November 3rd, the groups said, “The New York Mets will be facilitating activities that directly violate international law and the Obama administration’s call for a freeze in settlement construction, and that actively promote racial discrimination, and the ethnic cleansing of Palestinians from their homes in Hebron.”
The New York Mets, however, have not backed down at all due to the intimidation tactics and the anti-Israeli propaganda.
