I'm afraid my budget won't allow me to spend $1,000 on a dinner ticket, but thanks for letting me know about the event anyway.

Kind of puzzles me when we give them billions, why they have to have a fundraiser in NY?! LOL! Must be for the show of it all. That's a lot of money for a dinner! Thanks Cheryl!

I personally would like to know who attends and who pays $1000 per plate… I would like to know if any Hollywood actors attend, e.g. Dustin Hoffman. If so, I would never support (or pay to see a movie) with someone who supports occupation, confiscation and annihilation…

American Jewish actors should stand up and say... “ENOUGH”… “ENOUGH LAND” and “ENOUGH BLOOD”. But they never do. Their motherland is more important than America...

Well, Bob, I am not a tattle-tale but your painting of "American Jewish actors" with a broad black brush reveals your fundamental antisemitism on site here in clear violation of the Care2 rules of decency.

What did Mr. Hoffman, in particular, do that provoked your ire? Having worked in an institute devoted to the care of autistics, I can say that he he held in high esteem by professionals in that field as having so accurately depicted a man afflicted with that hanicap.

On the contrary, Bob. Since the United States is an ally of Israel any "Jewish actor" who supports Israel is being "an American" - since they are supporting an ally of their own country. After all, supporting a group that is considered by the United States as a terrorist organization would hardly be patriotic, would it?

And I suppose as a man with a good conscience you also boycott anyone who supports Islamic nations who subjugate women in often quite dreadful and legally-sanctioned ways, don't you? (Amazing how few people of good conscience seem to care overmuch about boycotts in that particular case....)

The Bible says there will never be peace in the Middle East. I'm sure the truth is being censored on our TV's so who are we to judge on who is right and wrong. Co-workers from other European countries say that we aren't getting but only a fraction of what is really going on over there.

If I had enough $$$$$, I'd go to New York to PROTEST this ABOMINATION. You're right, Cheryl; thank you for sharing.

And, Bob E., I agree with you as well. This is not just an Israeli/Palestinian crisis, but one of compassion vs. cruelty anywhere, including here at home. If any Hollywood actor - Jewish or not - spends $1000 to attend a dinner supporting the IDF, shame on them. That money would be much better spent on aiding earthquake victims in Haiti and Chile, who need it far more than the IDF.

'The truth is being censored on our TV's'. LOL No kidding!
I see the troll brigade of the 101st Fighting Keyboarders has arrived to defend the indefensible : emulating Holocaust upon Palestine. My best sources ? Israelis : who are much less henpecked about telling the truth so far despite Mossad's disinformation services.

Palestinians don't need such fundraiser's dinners - they simply take whatever they want from public coffers, be it students' money taken from unsuspecting students to run IAW, or from Unions money to run anti-Israeli rallies, or just money which Hezbollah criminally ripped off US merchants with fake rebates, to siphon cash to terrorists all over the world. Students, union members and merchants surely protest, but those protest are disorganized and happen too late.

I wish I had that extra $1,000 to spend on such a good cause like supporting Israeli Army.

some people can't seem to come in terms with the fact that israel has the right to defend itself. and yvonne, did you know that palestinians have missile and rocket which they send at houses in israel full of sleeping children. god help that there should be peace for everyone and no need for financing armies.
