Letter to the editor
I believe that the increase of antisemitism, at least in the US is due in great part to J Street, Jewish Voice for Peace, If Not Now, Bend the Arc, Code Pink, etc., and their cohorts. If as Jews, these horrendous groups portray Israel as a thief and usurper of the Palestinians, then the non-Jews feel that it is okay to hate Jews and Israel alike.
The Israeli government is considering the creation of a program by which the diaspora Jews and the Israeli Jews will have an interchange of ideas and opinions.
This would be beneficial, as long as their plan was to stick to mainstream Jews in the Diaspora.
If Israel would begin comunication with these self-hating Jews such as those mentioned at the beginning.....then, it will be a total disaster. These groups want to exercise as much pressure as they can to make sure Israel surrenders to the wishes of the West Bankers and the Gazans so that there can be peace at any cost. The comfortable couch-sitting, in America, organized groups
are not worth being included.
In my opinion, Biden will certainly use a group to coach him about Israel (as per his speech in 2016 at J Street). Furthermore, Biden will interfere with all the gains Israel and the Arab countries have made. He will make sure to only accept the deals which can give him a "win" with the Palestinians, as his future "cabinet" has indicated all the while.
70% of American Jews don't seem to care about the real accomplishments of Trump on Israel, they continue to vote for Biden whom they know will be a disaster for Israel because they are heedless and continue to be "Democrats".
A few days ago, Jewish Voice for Peace announced a group of hate mongrels as speakers, one of whom is Rashida Tlaib a real antisemite whose mother lives in Israel and by the way, does not want to live in the U.S. as she is happy there.
Another is Lemont Hill a well-known "teacher of antisemitism".
