Protestors Decry Presentation on "Islamophobia" at JCC
by Phyllis Chesler and Fern Sidman
On Wednesday evening, March 14th, over 30 protestors representing both Jewish and human rights organizations gathered in front of the Jewish Community Center on Manhattan's upper west side to express their outrage over a forum entitled "Combating Islamophobia."
Moderated by former first daughter Chelsea Clinton, the panelists included Rabbi Marc Schneier, co-founder of the Foundation For Ethnic Understanding, which fosters "twinning" programs between mosques and synagogues and Imam Shamsi-Ali, the spiritual leader of the Islamic Cultural Center of New York and the chairman of the Al-Hikmah mosque in Astoria.
