Apparently Educational Institute Oholei Torah decided to boycott this years Lag B'Omer parade unless the organizers uninvited the Marcus brothers, who were scheduled to perform at the event. Apparently, the organizers of the event gave in. This is, I may add, the same Educational Institute Oholei Torah which is honoring people at their own event who don't necessarily follow the principles which the school stands for. I refer, of course, to their lack of facial hair. Apparently however, their money is Kosher, while the music of the Rebbe's Shluchim is not. Which strikes me as strange, because MBD, a non-Lubavitch performer who is being allowed to ply his trade at the parade, has sung more songs to non-Jewish tunes than the brothers Marcus ever did.

Why did the organizers give in to this terrorism? I don't know. But I'd like to make it clear that I will be boycotting this event. Because I don't believe in giving in to terrorism.
