Trump and Pence to speak out at Jerusalem rally against #UNESCO_Lies, but not at Aish HaTorah
The Republican party is looking for a new location
for a Jerusalem rally at which candidates Donald Trump and Mike Pence will speak via satellite, after Aish HaTorah backed out of hosting it.
Aish HaTorah rejected a request by the
Republican Party to host a rally with speeches by Republican
presidential candidate Donald Trump and his running mate Mike Pence next
Wednesday after The Jerusalem Post reported exclusively that the event would be held on the organization's rooftop over-looking the Western Wall.
and Pence agreed to speak via satellite at the rally which was billed
as an event calling for the strengthening of Jerusalem following
UNESCO's controversial decision about the city.
"We decided not to do the event, because Aish is a non-profit
that doesn't get involved in partisan politics," Aish director general
Rabbi Steven Burg told the Post.
Burg said Aish would
do its own event in response to UNESCO "because the real issue is an
unjust decision trying to erase the Jewish connection to the Temple
Mount." Burg posted The Jerusalem Post article about the rally on Facebook explaining that Aish has decided not to host the event.
He said that he had received protest letters. There was also an outcry on Twitter.
Maybe Trump should just come here and visit the Kotel (Western Wall). That's what Romney did.
