And now I add my voice to the chorus of those who have already spoken about this. I very much appreciated what Jameel had to say on the matter.
I suspect that when push comes to shove he and I will have our differences, but as the Gemara says much can be worked out over a waffle breakfast.
This is another situation in which the opposition has done a better job of publicizing an event than the organizers ever could have done.
That is not to say that I agree with everyone who is going to be marching at the parade either, but I support their right to do so.
