Hebron Fund

Abstract: 

When I first learned that the New York Mets were hosting a fundraiser for the nonprofit Hebron Fund at Citi Field in support of the Israeli settlers in the occupied West Bank city of Hebron, I honestly assumed it was a joke, albeit a poor one. When I realized this was an actual, planned event, I still found it almost impossible to believe. This is because, even aside from the devastating impact of settlement expansion on the prospects for peace in the region, I have had the misfortune to see, repeatedly and at first hand, the fruits of the Hebron Fund’s labors.

Settlement supporters have called for letters praising the Mets for standing with the fund, while human rights groups including Adalah-NY issued a public appeal this week that resulted in hundreds of emails, letters and calls demanding the event's cancelation.
