Dozens of people protested outside the YM-YWHA at 92nd Street in New York City Thursday, against Jewish institutions and philanthropists who give their backing to anti-Israeli speakers.

AFSI Executive Director Helen Freedman told Arutz Sheva that the central Jewish organiations enjoy the generosity of American Jews who are unaware that the money is going toward anti-Israeli activities.

JCC Watch accused the 92nd Street Y of hosting several BDS advocates, including the rabidly anti-Israel novelist Alice Walker. Roger Waters of Pink Floyd was also supposed to speak and reportedly cancelled because of a scheduling conflict.

"It's like inviting Hitler to dinner and giving him the best food you have in your home,” a protester named Nili explained succinctly.
