Jewish Guy Protests Fla. Election on Passover

‘An attack upon the religious Jewish community,’ he says

Print Email

A Jewish gadfly in Miami Beach is protesting the date of next spring’s special election to fill the seat being vacated by Boca Raton Rep. Robert Wexler, a Democrat, because it falls on the last day of Passover. The Associated Press is reporting that Bob Kunst, who made a name for himself in 1996 by organizing protests outside a McDonald’s that opened across the street from the Dachau death camp, wrote a letter yesterday to Florida’s governor, Charlie Crist, complaining that the April 6 date is “an attack upon the religious Jewish community.” A Crist spokesman told the Associated Press that the governor, a Republican, is looking into changing the date.

I’m wondering in the event that anyone knows what Canada’s immigration prerequisites are. As an old fart, I probably don’t develop the “skills” they want. They’ll clearly observe that I’m fleeing a were unable country, looking for decent health care.
