A distinguished progressive rabbi within the US takes mainstream American Jewish teams to activity for failing to talk out amid the rise of far-right Non secular Zionism MK Itamar Ben Gvir.
Jill Jacobs, who heads the T’ruah rights group for Jewish clergy members in North America, says in a press release that “there was a exceptional lack of public concern amongst American Jewish organizations about Ben-Gvir’s Non secular Zionist slate, which traffics in racism and homophobia, advocates for the deportation of Palestinian residents of Israel, and incites violence in opposition to Palestinians and Israeli leftists.
“Jewish organizations have an ethical obligation to face collectively in opposition to Ben-Gvir and his celebration and loudly declare that they don’t characterize Jewish pursuits.
“Though we don’t but know the ultimate tallies and what coalitions will probably be constructed to create Israel’s subsequent authorities, we should name out the risks of a Kahanist majority so that each one know they characterize the incitement of violence on Palestinians and Israeli leftists,” Jacobs provides.
