Unity: How URJ Create Division Among The Jewish Nation
There is no doubt that a divided nation falls and a united nation stands strong and wins.
Ever wonder why 50% USA Jews assimilate and lose their Jewish heritage and affinity to Israel? Why 25% of American Buddhists are Jews? Why USA Jews have JewBudist Seder? You will get the gist when you read all the posts below...
For 2000 years, non-Jews, of all sorts, made sure the Jewish nation remained small. In 1948, at the dawn of the resurrection of the Jewish nation, remnants of its members, who, miraculously, came out of the ashes of the Nazi gas chambers, were given a chance to start building and growing their nation.
Unfortunately, there are some forces among the Jewish nation's members who are seeking to keep it small, and / or divided, no matter what.
URJ Seeks To Divide Israel
That force is Union for Reform Judaism - URJ.
The Islamic Society of North America - ISNA, is the Muslim Brotherhood USA front; and Union for Reform Judaism - URJ are their "interfaith" partners. Does URJ think that it represents American Jews' "Jewish values?"
The investigative Project on Terrorism gives us a good perspective what ISNA is all about; The Islamic Society of North America Committee for Accuracy in Middle East Reporting in America (CAMERA) writes: Claims in Doubt: The Islamic Society of North America; 'The Islamic Society of North America describes itself as the "largest mainstream Muslim community-based organization" in the United States. But a Special Report by CAMERA highlights the ISNA's origin as a satellite of the anti-Western Muslim Brotherhood and the society's continuing radical connections.'
Read the report here.
ISNA simply lies about Israel just like the NY Times, the LA Times and everyone else on the Left and beyond.
On the West Coast, in Los Angeles, the URJ rabbis interfaith with the Muslim Public Affair Council-MPAC, which is another Muslim Brotherhood front, whose "values" have been clearly described by The Investigative Project on Terrorism:
The Muslim Public Affairs Council (MPAC)
It is good that some of us are well informed and I hope that among the informed are the government of Israel and Israel's rabbinate.
Jewish Reform Movement Prepared To Malign The State
Temple Emanuel, standing from R-Rabbi David Eliezrie,Rabbi Yosef Kanefsky, Israel Consul General David Siegel, Shep Rosenman, Rob Eshman; sitting from R-Rabbi Nicole Guzik, Rabbi Laura Geller, Rabbi Judith HaLevy
On November 26, 2012 I attended a town hall meeting at the reform Synagogue Temple Emanuel, in Beverly Hills, California. The topic was, 'focusing on religious pluralism within Israel-looking forward: beyond the crisis in Israel'. The main discussion was about Anat Hoffman, chairwoman of Women of the Wall and her right to wear a Prayer Shawl-Talit, when praying at the site. One of the rabbis on the panel was Rabbi David Eliezrie of North County Chabad Center, and he summed it all up quite succinctly: the Jewish Reform Movement is not willing and not able to compromise to keep or nation together; they either force and get their way or they are willing to malign the Jewish state of Israel and all those Jews who do not agree with them.
It is well known that most of Jews in Israel, even those who are not observant, when it comes to attending synagogue service they will prefer to attend an orthodox synagogue, not a reform and the reform movement in Israel is not doing that well.
As a Jew, with no affiliation to any section of Judaism, whether orthodox, conservative, or reform, but for being just a Jew, here is what I have to say: keep Reform Judaism OUT; no government support. Its goal is to turn Jewish kids away from true Judaism and all Americans away from support for Israel. URJ goals are just like J Street goals, all against Israel's interests.
Come to think about it, Uzi Landau, Israel' Minister of National Infrastructure says, "If Israel's international critics learned more about Jewish history in the city [Jerusalem], at least their condemnations would not 'come out of ignorance.'"
What Mr. Landau should have said, If Israel's international critics learned more about Jewish history in the city [Jerusalem], at least their condemnations would not 'come out of ignorance and virulent anti-Semitism.'"
It is time to call the devil by his name!
URJ's Big Lie
I would like to pin URJ down to a big lie, which comes out of ignorance or spite, or both, below: "(No U.S. aid is provided to Hamas, which controls the Gaza strip)". The US funds Hamas/Gaza via US funding of UNWRA. URJ just needs to look at page 30 of Congressional Research Service report, dated December 2, 2010, provided by Sen. Boxer's office, in which it states that 'the US is UNWRA's single largest donor.' The US DOES NOT SEND tax dollars directly to Hamas-Gaza but by funding UNRWA US tax dollar reaches Hamas in all aspects of life on the Strip.
United Nations Relief and Works Agency (UNRWA): U.S. Annual Financial Contributions, (1950 - 2012)
Another implied lie through its statement that the PLO/PA/Fata/Abbas want peace. URJ has ALWAYS turned a blind eye to the Team PA/Abbas narrative and incitement with which it brainwashes its children, the future generations, to want exactly what Hamas kids want: kill all Jews and destroy Israel.
The URJ's entire post on the PA upgrade in the UN move smacks of willful blindness and appeasement - NO demand for retribution against PA at all. WHY? But Israel should not build on its own, legally owned land and in its own capital?!
I wonder if the URJ ever thought through the repercussions of their behavior 100 years from now?
