NEW YORK (CBSNewYork/AP) — Jewish groups this week were trying to get the Metropolitan Opera to cancel an opera based on the cruise ship murder of a Jewish businessman by pro-Palestinian terrorists.
As WCBS 880’s Marla Diamond reported, the protesters were escorted away from the entrance to Lincoln Center Monday night. But they said they would be back every week until the director cancels the fall performance of “The Death of Klinghoffer.”
One protester, Miriam, is a Holocaust survivor.
“This is an outrage, in the middle of New York City, to idolize murders,” she said.
