Iran issue bitterly divides and threatens the stability of the left-wing. The pro-Zionist left vs. the non- or even anti-Zionist left.

Ronald S. Lauder, president of the World Jewish Congress, expressed outrage at the decision by five Christian groups to host Iranian president Mahmoud Ahmadinejad at a dinner in New York on Thursday. The Mennonite Central Committee, the Quaker United Nations Office, the World Council of Churches, Religions for Peace and the American Friends Service Committee are sponsoring a dinner on 25 September 2008 with Ahmadinejad as the guest of honor, an event described as “dialogue between religious and political leaders” and a conversation to discuss “building peaceful societies”. Ahmadinejad is in New York this week for the opening session of the United Nations General Assembly.

The WJC president added: “These groups, who claim to hold up values such as peace and mutual understanding, make a mockery of themselves by shamelessly providing a cruel dictator and racist with a platform for his invective. There is no purpose in dignifying him. The World Council of Churches, the Quakers and the other sponsors of the event in New York have a long and distressing record of demonizing Israel. With their bow to Ahmadinejad, they have brazenly chosen a racist dictator as their friend.”
