US Black/Jewish Alliance—But Not in Israel
The Jewish supremacist “Foundation for Ethnic Understanding” and the Anti-Defamation League have called for a new alliance with blacks against Donald Trump—but in Israel, which both organizations support, black “refugees” are locked up and deported in order to preserve the “Jewish nature of the state.”
According to a report in the Jewish Forward newspaper (“Why Jews Must Fight for the Civil Rights of Muslims,” January 9, 2017), Rabbi Marc Schneier, the president of the Foundation for Ethnic Understanding, said that
“As we celebrate the birthday of Martin Luther King Jr., American Jews should reflect anew upon the epic struggle he led to free African-Americans from the shackles of bigotry and take pride in the singular role played by the Jewish community in support of King and African-Americans.”
Rabbi Schneier continued by saying that
“As we await the advent of the new Trump administration, it is more important than ever for our community to reconnect with that uplifting chapter in American history half a century ago,” and that to this end, “American Jews in 2017 must resolve that we will continue to speak out openly and assertively in support of the principle that Americans of all faiths and ethnicities — including Muslim Americans — must be accorded full civil rights and religious freedom as guaranteed by the U.S. Constitution and Bill of Rights.”
Finally, Rabbi Schneier says that in “recent weeks, many rabbis and Jewish leaders have vowed that if the new administration institutes a Muslim registry, they themselves will be among the first to sign up for it.”
