The IDF fundraising dinner at the Waldorf tonight and the protest called for 5 outside the hotel is a big story in Israel and Palestine, getting covered in the Jerusalem Post, in right wing Arutz Sheva, on Democracy Now, on Al Bawaba, again in the JPost, in Haaretz by Donna Nevel of Jews Say No, and in the JTA, out of Jerusalem.

A protest against [Gabi] Ashkenazi sponsored by more than 25 American, Jewish and Israeli organizations is scheduled for Tuesday afternoon outside Manhattan’s Waldorf-Astoria Hotel, the site of the IDF dinner, the Jerusalem Post reported. Protest organizers have described Ashkenazi as the “butcher of Gaza.”
