The Jewish Left and Israel

Gary Fouse

Jerry Gordon has written a thought-provoking article in the New English Review in the wake of the massacre of the Fogel family in Itamar. It covers many areas including the destructive effect left-wing Jewish groups in America are having on Israel. Gordon's article also describes recent events at UC-Irvine and the on-going controversy over the Olive Tree Initiative, of which I have written.

I heartily concur with Gordon that elements of the Jewish left in America have forsaken Israel and joined her enemies. The two most glaring examples are Jewish Voice for Peace, which, in my view, might just as well re-name itself "Jews for Jihad", as well as J Street, that George Soros-funded bunch that claims to be pro-Israel but sides with the Palestinians on every issue.

With the turmoil in the Middle East, the above-mentioned atrocity in Itamar, and Hamas lobbing rockets into Israel, it seems to me to be high time to call out those groups on the left that are working to further Israel's destruction-be they Jewish or not.
