I had no clue, till getting this from a reader:
Obviously, this has all of those who despise a Jewish presence in Hebron in a tizzy.The New York Mets will allow the Hebron Fund to host its annual dinner at a club in the team's stadium despite a protest.
Eleven organizations, including Jews Against the Occupation-NYC and the American-Arab Anti-Discrimination Committee, had asked the Mets to cancel the Nov. 21 event at Caesar's Club in Citi Field.Shlomo Mostofsky, president of the The National Council of Young Israel, praised the Mets for honoring their commitment in a letter addressed to the club's governing body.
He called the dinner a "celebration of the human spirit," according to a Young Israel news release.
"The New York Mets organization is not facilitating a political event; rather it is enabling a salute to a group of men, women, and children whose determination and inner strength have allowed them to remain in their communities, despite desperate attempts by Israel's adversaries to drive them from their homes," Mostofsky wrote in a letter to Mets CEO Fred Wilpon; his son Jeff, the team's chief operating officer; and President Saul Katz.

While the NY Yankees may have won the World Series (which made me happy), I tip my hat to the NY Mets for standing up to Arab, Leftist and Anarchist pressure.
