Hungering for Justice

As the so-called Friends of the Israel Defense Forces held a
$1,000-a-plate fundraiser at New York's Walfdorf-Astoria, hundreds of
Palestine supporters silently marched outside to protest
Israeli war crimes, the Gaza blockade and the occupation. The action
was organized by Jews Say No! and about 20 other activist groups.

"Our idea is to show the totally atrocious contradiction of having a
$1,000 a plate dinner for people who a year ago killed 1,400 people,
mostly civilians," said Dorothy Zellner, a founding member of Jews Say
No!
