Right-wing Israeli media outlets were full of praise for the New York Mets this week after the popular baseball team refused to cancel an upcoming event at its stadium that will raise money for Jewish "settlers" living in the biblical Judean town of Hebron.
The annual Hebron Fund dinner is scheduled to take place at the Caesar's Club at Citi Field on November 21. Shortly after the booking was made, left-wing Israeli, Palestinian and liberal American groups petitioned the Mets to cancel the dinner and refuse any future dealings with Jews who lay claim to their biblical heritage.
Late last week, the Mets management rejected the request, and confirmed that the Hebron Fund dinner will take place as scheduled at its facility.
