Israeli billionaire and settlement mogul Lev Leviev is hosting a cocktail party Thursday evening at his Madison Avenue jewelry store to "Buck the Recession with Champagne & Diamonds." (http://www.observer.com/2008/o2/bucking-economy-harvey-weinstein-and-diamond-billionaire-lev-leviev-host-diamonds-champagne-party-socialites) The party is for "A Small World", "an exclusive network of like-minded individuals with an appreciation for quality in life." It's truly a small world for Leviev, as his companies are able to destroy communities in Palestine, Africa, and New York City, all at the same time!
6:00 PM: Gather at the corner of 62nd and 5th Avenue (Central Park side)
6:15 PM: At Leviev, 700 Madison Avenue, between 62nd and 63rd St.
"Fashionistas and socialites, Leviev destroys human lives"
As New York's socialites sip cocktails and wear Leviev diamonds, Leviev builds settlements on Palestinian land, his security forces abuse Angolan diamond miners, and he pays Namibian diamond polishers poverty wages, all while the world struggles with an economic recession.
