Recently, some Jewish leaders joined the Left and attacked President Doanld Trump.
The Yated Ne’eman, in last week’s issue, wrote:
“The charge that Trump is a bigot is ridiculous on its face. Two of his children married Jews, one of them converted to do so. His grandchildren are Jewish. He always did business with Jews and enjoyed good relations with Jews and Blacks his entire life. In his business, he hired many Jews and in the White House he is surrounded by Jewish aides, conduct unbecoming a neo-Nazi KKK sympathizer.
As the labeling of Trump as a sympathizer of the neo-Nazis, the KKK and other white hate groups, with anti-Trump Republicans joined in the criticism, Trump sought to put the issue to rest on Monday afternoon, telling reporters at the White House, “Racism is evil and those who cause violence in its name are criminals and thugs, including the KKK, neo-Nazis, white supremacists and other hate groups that are repugnant to everything we hold dear as Americans. Those who spread violence in the name of bigotry strike at the very core of America.”
Ironically, the same critics demanding that Trump condemn right wing domestic terror appeared much less alarmed by the violence in Ferguson and Baltimore as well as the June 14 sniper attack by left-wing activist James Hodgkinson on Republican members of Congress while they were playing baseball in Alexandria, Virginia. The mainstream media went to great lengths to try to downplay the significance of Hodgkinson’s active political support for the Bernie Sanders campaign as a contributing factor to his motive for attempting to murder Republican lawmakers.
Louisiana Congressman Steve Scalise was critically wounded in the attack, and almost didn’t make it, but some left-wing media commentators openly hinted that Scalise deserved to be shot because of his conservative political views.

A WARNING AGAINST COMPLACENCY
While we are fortunate that anti-Semitic incidents in the United States remain isolated, there is still a large number of bigots in America who hate and want to do harm to Jews. They continue to spread the classic anti-Semitic lies and false accusations, transmitting the virus of prejudice from generation to generation, including young people like James Fields.
Jews dare not be complacent in the security of America. The widespread acceptance for slandering and targeting Jews throughout Europe today should serve a warning. Such persecution can happen here, chas v’shalom. If it does, it is likely that members of the evil groups on both sides of the violence in Charlottesville will have contributed to it.
We must remember that we are in golus, with people such as the neo-Nazis, white supremacists and the other hate groups which gathered in Charlottesville last Shabbos are out there aiming for us. Let us pray that Hashem keep us safe”.
