What bothers me most of all is the shameful silence and lack of action by community leaders - Jew and Christian. Where are they? If this were a civil rights matter, the Jews would be in the mall in Washington protesting with and on behalf of our fellow American citizens. I asked one prominent Jewish leader why no one is preparing a march on Washington similar to the one in 1963 at which I was present and Martin Luther King's memorable speech was given? His reply was "Fifty people might come." Remember the 1930s? Few stood up. They were silent. Remember the most insightful statement of one of our greatest teachers, Rabbi Hillel: "If I am not for myself, who is for me? And if I am only for myself, what am I? And if not now, when?"
We have indeed stood up for everyone else. When will we stand up for our brothers and sisters living in the Jewish state of Israel?
First Hillary discovered that race trumps gender and now we see that the Jews are discovering that their race is of no consideration to the Leftie they helped, in large numbers, elect.
This might be forgivable if the Left's love for Palestine and Muslims in general had not been plain to see for the past 10 years or so and became plainer and plainer as the years went by. Simply put, the Left hates America so anyone who loves America is an enemy.
A better question is, when will the Jews step forward and join with the Left's opposition? Or will the Jews, as so many did in pre war Germany, keep telling themselves that "nothing will happen?"
