When the Niagara Foundation in Chicago succumbed to pressure from pro-Palestinian groups and canceled an interfaith event that included Israel’s Consul General, United with Israel sent out a Call to Action, asking supporters to protest the Foundation’s decision. And the response was promising.
Roey Gilad, Israel’s Consul General in Chicago, was scheduled to appear at an interfaith dialogue event hosted by the Niagara Foundation to discuss whether religions can build peace in the Middle East.
But after appeals by the anti-Israel US Palestinian Community Network and American Muslims for Palestine, the Niagara Foundation announced that it was canceling the planned peace event with Gilad.
United with Israel’s Call to Action that was posted on July 2 garnered hundreds of positive responses and resulted in a flurry of phone calls, emails and Facebook posts to the Niagara Foundation.
As of this writing however, the Niagara Foundation has yet to respond or reverse its decision. This means we need to keep up the pressure!
