In a mark of concern, Jewish religious leaders shun Trump

A prominent coalition of American rabbis has decided not to hold its annual conference call with the president to mark Jewish holidays, citing Donald Trump’s remarks on the recent violence in Charlottesville, Virginia, as supporting “those who advocate anti-Semitism, racism and xenophobia.”

“We have concluded that President Trump’s statements during and after the tragic events in Charlottesville are so lacking in moral leadership and empathy for the victims of racial and religious hatred that we cannot organize such a call this year,” the groups — the Central Conference of American Rabbis, Rabbinical Assembly, Reconstructionist Rabbinical Association and Religious Action Center of Reform Judaism — said in a statement.

Where are the other major religions on this?

    Guess what? The Left started the violence in Virginia 2 weeks ago.

    Do we really want the Jews to be moral arbiters for us? We have 3 Jewish judicial radicals on the US Supreme Court. Enough is enough.
