Jewish "leaders" to boycott Trump's AIPAC appearance
- People really are fucking stupid - Rabbis protest a candidate who supports Israel and opposes Muslim terrorism by playing the Nazi card.
(Washington Examiner) - Several rabbis and Jewish religious organizations plan to protest Donald Trump's speech at the American Israel Public Affairs Committee, claiming his comments about Muslims and immigrants are reminiscent of Nazi-era anti-Semitism.
On Thursday, the Union for Reform Judaism issued a statement acknowledging that AIPAC's conference would give Trump an opportunity to speak "clearly about his views on U.S.-Israel issues."
But the group claimed that on issues Trump has already addressed, he's "chosen to take the low road, sowing seeds of hatred and division in our body politic."
Another group, called "Jews Against Trump," developed a petition that urges AIPAC to rescind its invitation to the billionaire. As of 5 p.m.Thursday, the petition had garnered 513 signatures.
"A person so diametrically opposed to Jewish values has no place on a stage championing Jewish causes," the petition states.
Others, like Rabbis David Paskin and Jesse Olitzky, have worked to organize protests against Trump's speech.Read More . . . .
