10 Jewish Groups Revolt Against Failed Progressive Establishment

From The Israel Group: which includes MJAC; Michigan Jewish Action Council

THE TEXT - BOSTON HERALD AD Jewish Americans Revolt against Their Failed Progressive Establishment. Our Voices Will Be Heard. America is deeply divided. So is the Jewish community. America’s mainstream media, college campuses, and liberal churches have been taken over by the radical left — and so have America’s major Jewish institutions. Organizations like the Anti-Defamation League (ADL), many Jewish Federations, Community Relations Councils, and much of the reform rabbinate have corrupted and distorted Jewish values to promote a progressive political agenda. And they are silencing the voices of traditional Jews. This is the reason so many Americans think that nearly all America’s Jews are progressive leftists. A rapidly growing number in the Jewish community who are faithful to the principles of liberty, civility, and tolerance will no longer remain silent. We believe in American exceptionalism, the centrality of Israel to Judaism, and its strategic importance to America. Americans need to know:
  • Progressive /Left-wing Jewish leaders have corrupted the meaning of Jewish tradition: they are transforming Judaism into socialism, and an agent of radical politics. Judaism is not socialism. It is not globalism. It is not radical left-wing politics.

  • Progressive /Left-wing Jewish leaders are willing to compromise the welfare of the Jewish community to support their progressive political agenda. They divert Jewish resources to do so.

  • Progressive Jewish leaders encourage and financially support increased immigration from anti-American and anti-Semitic countries. They then scandalously ignore the threats to the Jewish community emanating from this radicalization.

Here in Boston, the Jewish Community Relations Council (JCRC), and the Anti-Defamation League (ADL), whether for a lack of courage, or because they are transfixed by progressive utopian fantasies, have failed to counter the biased anti-Israel indoctrination in Newton high schools; while embracing radicals from the Islamic Society of Boston. We are witnessing a massive failure of Jewish leadership, not unlike what happened during the Holocaust, when American Jewish leaders seemed more concerned with their own status than in protecting the Jewish community.
