Heschel to Lead Anti-War Rally

Susannah Heschel, chairwoman of the Jewish studies program, will be leading an anti-war rally Sunday in Manhattan, according to the arch-liberal Village Voice. Timed to mark the second anniversary of Iraq’s liberation, the rally is organized in part by Iraq Veterans Against the War, a defeatist organization which sees the War on Terror as “pointless” and based on “lies and deceit.” Also appearing with the Jewish studies professor will be the YAYA Network, a group dedicated to undermining the armed forces by “counter-recruiting,” and Military Families Speak Out, which has declared that fighting terrorists with force “is the problem, not the solution.”
