Sarah Palin will speak at next week's Jewish-sponsored rally to protest Mahmoud Ahmadinejad at the United Nations.
In addition to Palin, the Republican vice-presidential nominee and Alaska governor, confirmed speakers include U.S. Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton (D-N.Y.), Iranian dissidents, black ministers, Jewish leaders and Israeli Tourism Minister Isaac Herzog, according to a key group organizing the rally, the Conference of Presidents of Major American Jewish Organizations.
Asked if there would be someone from the Obama campaign at the demonstration, Hoenlein noted the presence of Clinton as a leading Democrat.
The rally, part of efforts by Jewish groups to stop Iran from obtaining nuclear weapons, will be held at 11:45 a.m. Sept. 22. It is expected to draw thousands of participants to Dag Hammarskjold Plaza, across from the United Nations.
Hillary Clinton has pulled out of an appearance at a New York rally next week to protest Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, her aides say because she doesn’t want to be seen alongside Republican vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin in a “partisan” event.
On Wednesday, an Obama campaign source said that the campaign had not been contacted about participating in the rally until just that morning, following Clinton's pullout and Palin's acceptance. The source said someone would be participating on behalf of the campaign but didn't supply that person's name, adding that Clinton's withdrawal was not believed to be coordinated with the campaign.
