HADASSAH MEMBERS ATTEND RALLY AGAINST PRESIDENT OF IRAN
(New York, NY -- September 24, 2007) -- A sea of red Hadassah tee-shirts were visible at today's Conference of Presidents/UJC rally against Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad at the United Nations, which some 100 members of Hadassah attended.
According to Nancy Falchuk, National President of Hadassah, the Women's Zionist Organization of America:
“The real proof of the vitality of our American democracy lies in our ability to stage a mass rally to protest the regime of the President of Iran, an elected official who claims the Holocaust didn’t occur and has consistently expressed anti-Semitic sentiments. This is a man whose government is developing nuclear power, a man whose government funds terrorism, a man who is ultimately responsible for the capture and continuing captivity of Israeli soldiers. We demand he cease his reckless behavior and join the family of nations. As proud Zionists, we, the 300,000 women of Hadassah, demand that he stop threatening Israel and the world.”
