American Jewish Groups Butting Into Israeli Politics


BOCA RATON – Last week, Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu prepared for the upcoming April elections by trying to form workable coalitions within his government that would not only back his re-election but support his policies after his victory. That’s what good and winning politicians do. But two American, supposedly pro-Israel groups whose jobs are to be advocates for and reinforce American Jewry’s allegiance to the Jewish State have chimed in politically. Bad news for Israel and good news for its enemies.

The American Jewish Committee (AJC)  has joined forces with the American Israel Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC) to form an American Jewish powerhouse alliance to butt into Israel’s political situation condemning Netanyahu’s deal that garnered needed support from and brought into his camp the Jewish Home and the Otzma Yehudit parties, both right right of center. Strange, that both ADL and AIPAC never uttered a word of opposition to the domestic candidacies of now Congresswomen Ilhan Omar and Rashida Tlaib, both vociferously Jew/Israel haters. But they choose to interfere with Israeli elections. Evidently they partner with the Democrat Party’s top echelon of Jewish spokespeople, Ted Deutch (D-FL) and Jerrold Nadler (D-NY) who have forcefully denounced the political maneuvering of Netanyahu in this matter. If the Left is against it, it must be good for Israel!

The AJC stated with reference to the Israeli situation, “The views of Otzma Yehudit are reprehensible.” AIPAC tweeted, partnering in agreement with AJC, “We agree with AJC. AIPAC has a longstanding policy not to meet with members of this racist and reprehensible party.”

Before we get along with our comments we’d like to inform our readers that the AJC has linked with the virulent, anti-Israel, pro-terrorist, Muslim Brotherhood group, The Islamic Society off North America, to form the Muslim-Jewish Advisory Council which, of course, will advocate for a fanciful partnering of American Jews and Muslims to learn to live together in peace and harmony. Leave it to a group of  Leftist, Progressive, ideologically deranged Jews to sit down with overt Jew/Israel hating Sharia promoting Muslims to talk about stemming religious hatred. And, if you recall, when Obama initially unveiled the Iran Nuclear deal, AIPAC supported it although it was a death knell for Israel. So these two groups are our shomrim?

And just what seems to be troubling to AIPAC and the AJC about Otzuma Yehudit? The party is considered to be Kahanist, ultra national, anti-Arab and for kicks, far right. It calls for the annexation of Judea Samaria, it’s against the formation of a Palestinian state, advocates for the cancellation of the Oslo Accords as well as for imposing Israeli sovereignty over the Temple Mount. It demands increasing the teaching of Jewish history in all elementary schools, is against the freezing construction of Jewish settlements, opposes releasing terrorists and advocates for the deportation of “Arab extremists.” If Rabbi Meir Kahane were alive today, he’d support such a platform. And after looking it over, so do I.
