Romney Jerusalem fundraiser invite

Buzzfeed posts what it claims is an invitation to a $50,000 per plate Romney fundraiser in Jerusalem. It's not clear to me whether this is the original one that was canceled or whether it's now been rescheduled. Three points worth noticing:

1. It starts at 9:30 pm. Depending upon which view you follow, the Tisha b'Av fast, which takes place the same day, ends at 8:08 pm, 8:18 pm or 8:59 pm. In any event, the fast will be over before the fundraiser starts.

2. "Dietary laws observed. Refreshments will not be served until after the fast." 'Nuff said.

3. Unlike an Obama fundraiser, you actually have to prove you're a US citizen to attend.

Don't believe everything you read on Huffington Post! No, Romney was NEVER going to have a fundraising dinner (which was always going to be Kosher for crying out loud!) during Tisha B'Av! http://www.jta.org/news/​article/2012/07/12/3100606/​romney-campaign-never-plann​ed-tisha-bav-event
