This my friends is disgusting. According to the a few well placed sources, the Democratic Party is putting a lot of pressure on the Organizers of Monday’s Anti-Iraq rally trying to get Sarah Palin Disinvited from the event BODY Confirmed by a highly reliable source through my connection with UJA; the DNC is calling in its markers and leaning very hard on Monday’s Anti-Iran Rally organizers and sympathetic local rabbis to dis-invite
Alaska Governor Sarah Palin from speaking at the event.

The reason: her presence makes it a “partisan” event. PARTISAN ? HILLARY PULLED OUT! BY TAKING AWAY THEIR INVITE THEY ARE BEING PARTISAN.

One Northern NJ rabbi (who will remain anonymous) is really stinking it up with the Jewish Press. Look for an article about it very soon.

According to the Jerusalem Post: Organizers had said Tuesday that both Clinton, who nearly won the Democratic nomination for president, and Palin, Republican candidate John McCain’s running mate, were expected to attend.
That would have set up a closely scrutinized and potentially explosive pairing in the midst of a presidential campaign, one in which the New York senator is campaigning for Democratic nominee Barack Obama while Palin actively courts disappointed Clinton supporters.
Clinton aides were furious. They first learned of the plan to have both Clinton and Palin appear when informed by reporters.
“Her attendance was news to us, and this was never billed to us as a partisan political event,” said Clinton spokesman Philippe Reines. “Sen. Clinton will therefore not be attending.”
A McCain-Palin campaign official, speaking on condition of anonymity because Palin’s schedule for Monday has not been announced, said only that Palin tentatively planned to attend the rally.
Malcolm Hoenlein, executive vice chairman of the Conference of Presidents of Major American Jewish Organizations, did not immediately return messages Tuesday seeking comment, nor did other organizers of the rally. Other event sponsors are the National Coalition to Stop Iran Now, The Israel Project, United Jewish Communities, the UJA-Federation of New York and the Jewish Council for Public Affairs.


Below are some of the contact info for some of the events sponsors, Please call, email etc. demand that they do not pull Governor Palin from the speakers list:
