Jewish Voice for Peace schedules anti-Israel talk for Rosh Hashonah

The "As-a Jews" of  Jewish Voice for Peace are sponsoring an anti-Israel talk on Rosh Hoshanah, the Jewish New Year.  Its not surprising- in the past, they've organized protests and film screenings on Yom Kippor as well.  Scheduling events on Jewish holy days is a low energy way to muzzle dissent and silence voices that might gather in opposition.  It shows JVP lack of commitment and lack of respect for Jewish traditional observance.
