Joe Biden has just said he would break US law to do something which is also, of course, morally repugnant — to reinvolve the American taxpayer in incentivizing terrorism against innocent Americans like Taylor Force and others.
Though it claims to be concerned for civil rights and civil debate, J Street has an unfortunate history of false personal attacks against those in the Jewish community who reject its views.
Replace ‘Jewish’ with African-American, Hispanic, Buddhist, Sikh or Catholic, much less Gay or Muslim, and De Blasio would never dare make such a statement. Yet he targeted the very people who faced repeated, random anti-Semitic attacks across the city last year, with a broad-brush slur based upon, at most, the wrongdoing of several hundred people.
We have seen this sad story play out in America all too often. This ludicrous decision expresses disdain for Judaism and Jewish values; the judge has embraced secular coercion and intolerance in their most repugnant forms.
