An Open Letter To Rabbis Who Cancelled Phone Call W/Trump Over Charlottesville
We at MJAC are not the only Jews noticing that some of our community leaders seem to be diminishing their Judaism and replacing it with, as Dennis Prager refers to it, Leftism. Politics has replaced religion, and many Jews are being marginalized in Jewish leaders' rush to embrace a political rather than a religious philosophy. Jeff Dunetz calls out Conservative and Liberal rabbis who are more concerned with attacking Donald Trump than they are with promoting Jewish values.
From the article:
There was nothing from the Rabbis of the Rabbinical Assembly when Obama surrounded himself with anti-Semites such as Chas Freemen, Zbigniew Brzezinski, or General McPeak who all spread the anti-Semitic stereotype that Jews control the U.S. Government, or that he used Al Sharpton (who incited two different anti-Semitic pogroms in NY City) as an unofficial advisor. You said nothing when Obama gave the Presidential Medal of Freedom to anti-Semites such as Bishop Tutu who said, “Jews Think They Own God” and to Mary Robinson who ran the Anti-Semitic Darfur conference on Human Rights, Toni Morrison who resurrected the Anti-Semitic Blood liable to against Israeli Jews, and Rev. Joseph Lowery who preached the anti-Semitic canard that the “powerful Jewish lobby.” It didn’t seem to matter to the Rabbis of Conservative Judaism when Barack Obama said he supported the anti-Semitic Occupy Wall Street movement.
