Ronald Lauder, president of the World Jewish Congress, following up his March 18 New York Times tirade against Israeli settlers and several other targets (“Israel’s Self-Inflicted Wounds”) doubled down with a second op-ed in the Times on Aug. 13 with an attack on Orthodox Jewish influence on Israeli politics (“Israel, This Is Not Who We Are”).

Many opponents of Lauder’s views on Israel have taken pen in hand and pointed out where they believe Lauder went wrong in each of his articles. Other authors attacked Lauder for what they (correctly) saw as his hypocritical claim that “democratic and egalitarian dimensions of the Jewish democratic state are being tested” when he was not elected to his position as president of the WJC in a general election of its membership. He has been president of the organization for more than 11 years and it seems he faces no term limits.
