Yet another 'star rating' system

Do you remember the demonstration staged by Iranian students one week ago, on Monday, December 11, against President Mahmamoud Ahmadinejad? Yes, when they lightened a firecracker and burned the head of state's photograph calling him a dictator as he himself was speaking at Amir Kabir Technical University in Tehran.

  1. qui si trova una petizione che chiede alle sinagoghe di pronunciare cherem (=scomunica, più o meno) contro i Neture Karta, quei signori che sono andati a omaggiare Ahmadinedjaad a Teheran.
    I promotori della petizione sono le principali organizzazioni ortodosse di New York.
    Fimate e fate firmare ai vostri amici (chi non ha un amico ebreo, oggigiorno ?)
