Rabbis’ walkout not ‘myopic’

Posted: Wednesday, March 30, 2016 10:00 am


We found the column “Reflections from AIPAC” (Jewish News, March 25) to be thoughtful, save the phrase “myopic rabbis.” Many of the comments from Donald Trump are clearly an affront to Jewish values. Those rabbis were speaking out rather than sweeping racism and bigotry under the carpet. We saw the horrific result of silence in Germany in the 1930s. We suggest that you read the words of Pastor Martin Niemöller, “Then they came for me – and there was no one left to speak for me.”
