Foolish and Dangerous Jews

Last week we posted a video about Temple Isaiah in Lexington, Massachusetts not only hosting a representative from CAIR, but allowing that representative to solicit donations for CAIR and related organizations.

Even worse, it's not just one synagogue and one rabbi who are hosting and defending our enemies. Here is more information. Read it and weep.

From the article:

  • In November 2016, the American Jewish Committee chose the Islamic Society of North American (ISNA) to launch a "Muslim-Jewish Advisory Council." ISNA has longstanding ties to Islamic terrorists and has never disavowed calls for jihad.

  • Rabbi Eric Yoffie, a Reform clergyman, spoke at an ISNA convention and claimed the Torah causes terrorism. Yoffie denounced Dennis Prager for criticizing the Koran.

  • Isi Liebler writes that "[l]iberal-inclined Diaspora Jews – especially those lacking an authentic Jewish education – ... consider that the well-being of the world and politically correct standards of social values must be their priority – with disregard to the harm this inflicts on them as a community."

  • Many national Jewish advocacy groups like the Anti-Defamation League (ADL), the Jewish Federation, and many campus Hillel chapters remain mute in the face of pro-Palestinian groups like Students for Justice in Palestine and the Muslim Student Association. These Jewish groups "would rather stand with their Muslim 'allies' ... than acknowledge that Jew[-]hatred is deeply ingrained in the teachings and the texts of Islam."

  • The once mainstream Jewish group the National Council of Jewish Women has no qualms about backing Linda Sarsour, a staunch supporter of the Boycott, Divestment, and Sanction (BDS) movement.

In the past, the ADL pointed out that the Jewish Voice for Peace (JVP) was the largest and most influential Jewish anti-Zionist group in the United States and a supporter of the BDS movement. But under the direction of its new head, Jonathan Greenblatt, the ADL comes to the defense of Linda Sarsour.

Also from the article, here is a question that must be asked:

As Charles Jacobs asserts, "solidarity with terror and its enablers isn't social justice." Is Jewish identity so weak that Jews can no longer stand up for themselves and, instead, foolishly support those who despise Jewish aspirations and the Jewish people?
