Rahm Emanuel To Visit Israel For Son’s Bar Mitzvah, Is Called A “Traitor”


rahm-emanuelProminent far-right Israeli activists Itamar Ben Gvir and Baruch Marzel wrote an intimidation letter to White House Chief of Staff Rahm Emanuel over the weekend, threatening to protest his upcoming visit to Israel, Army Radio reported today.

Gvir and Marzel attacked Emanuel’s allegiance to Israel and the Jewish nation. “You are like the Hellenists who acted against the Israeli nation. You advise President Obama against Israel, and incite and instigate against us. You are a traitor against the entire Jewish people,” Army Radio quoted the letter.

Emanuel is due to visit Israel in the coming months to celebrate his son’s bar mitzvah.

White House Chief of Staff Rahm Emanuel recently told the Israeli consul in Los Angeles that the Obama administration is fed up with both Israel and the Palestinians.

Emanuel told Jacob Dayan, consul general of Israel in Los Angeles, that the United States is sick of the Israelis, who adopt suitable ideas months too late, when they are no longer effective.

  1. what a chilul hashem! this is the way to entice someone to torah and mitzvos? why should the bar mitzvah ever want to consider become part of such a disgusting group of people? why nt say mazal tov and invite him to comesee the holy city of chevron and inspire him? which daas torah or rebbe condones and supports this disgusting letter???? leace the poor kid alone, he has done nothing to you. you soud like extremist whackos

  2. #1 the letter was not written to the son, it was written to the father who is a ‘traitor’.

    Emanuel is ready to send the Jews down the drain,,, and quickly.

  3. Matzav:

    Please be advised that a group of Orthodox-hating Jews led by Shmarya Rosenberg are using your forum as well as those on vosizneias.com and other Web sites to attack any and all responders who write pro-Torah, pro-Eretz Yisrael, pro-Orthodox opinions.

    You are enabling them to “trip up the public”!

  4. 6, so if you have issues with people who say that if this is going to happen let’s hope for the best and try to make a kiddush Hashem, or don’t take it out on a kid who has been fairly Jewishly affiliated, we’re all part of the Shmarya Rosenberg cabal? (Never heard of him).

    Or are you trying to say that you agree with the suggestions in the first paragraph?

    Could you clarify?

  5. Its is my humble opinion that this sort of behavior regardless of the religion of the child is nothing short of profaning gods name in essence using his name for what you decide to make up and its in essence a pure misguided right fanatic claiming to like all muslim extremests do that they are carrying out gods wishes by blowing himself in the midst of hundreds of innocent people so lets stop being matzdia to the two fanatical clowns

  6. It is a shame to try destroying his kid’s Bar Mitzvah because of political reasons. But it does not surprise me; not many in the world know American Constitution and agree with the philosophy of the 1st Amendment. When the very right people in Israel or America are not able to convince others in their point of view, they always begin doing things like that; not a surprise at all. Unfortunately.

  7. Rahm Emanuel’s kids, or more to the point his wife’s kids are as “Jewish” as Jon Stewart. Meaning their mother is not a necessary and sufficient adjective.
