“While Trump unabashedly brags that he’s done more for Israel than any other U.S. President, he clearly hasn’t done much of anything for U.S. military members of all faiths and no faith except to tell them, post-Charlottesville, that ‘there were very fine people on both sides.’”
— Rabbi Joel R. Schwartzman, Ch, Col, (Ret) USAF

“Antisemitism in the American armed forces ranks has never been more pernicious, pervasive, and systemic than right now.
— MRFF Founder and President Mikey Weinstein

    This jab was right on by Trump, he is true, American Jews, especially Democrat Jews in America are hateful towards Israel and will not support their spiritual homeland where Judaism was birthed over 3,000 years ago. The greatest support of Israel today, spoken by leaders in Israel like Netanyahu are Evangelical Christians. Today’s American Jews especially Democrat ones like Mikey and Rabbi Schwartzmann are nothing but JINO (Jews in Name Only) Kapo Jews. They are an embarrassment to their heritage, Judaism and Eretz Israel. Many of my American Orthodox Jewish friends have agreed with me on this and Trump.

    “The “Defender of Zion” makes assertions that cannot possibly be validated and are patently false; but worse is his reference to concentration camp terms like “Kapo.” This kind of ignorant bigotry serves only to enflame, never to inform. His attempts to stick pins in Liberal Jews and our support of Israel will fail because they are just that, attempts. They are unproven allegations stated just for theatrical purposes.

    Donald Trump is no friend of Jewish Americans and ultimately, he will be seen as no friend of truth-speakers and the American democratic system. His demagoguery is demonstrated in his eagerness to divide people one from another, inspiring and catalyzing enmity and hatred. This is not leadership. This is evil. It is being seen as only serving Trump’s aspirations to rule over America, and his attempts to divide the Jewish community, like the assertions made here, will ultimately be seen for what they are. Even many Evangelical Christians are now reported to be criticizing Trump for the fraud and miscreant that he is.

    There is a term used for the unity of the Jewish people. It is Klal Yisrael. Perhaps the writer of this piece ought to familiarize himself with it. He might learn who is accepted under the tent of the Jewish people and who is not. And legitimate criticism of Israel does not eliminate any Jew from the “tribe.” It does, however protect the whole from snipers and haters like this Trumper.”

    – Rabbi Joel
