Letter to the Editor of the Jewish Journal

A reply to Rob Eshman, Jewish Journal Editor’s article, Sheldon: Improve Israel’s odds

This week there was an impressive show up in Las Vegas where money moguls got together to discuss the BDS (Boycott, Divestment, Sanction) movement’s implications and how to combat it.

The BDS’s anti-Israel-anti-Semitic activities’ goal is to weaken and bring Israel down and to prove it they call the land where Israel is located “2 states” 1) Ham Asian 2) West Bank Asia, no longer Israel. The destruction of Israel is in essence already in their mindset.

The implications are dangerous. If they are not completely successful in bringing Israel down then, there may be a 3 state “solution,” a bleak situation for Jews.

The BDS, which started in 2005, has been fought by very fine people and organizations way before this meeting took place in Las Vegas. If the moguls of the Las Vegas’ meeting join forces with the exiting fighters, the added financial support can go a long way and the fight will become much more effective.

Mr. Eshman, the Jewish Journal Chief Editor, is no fighter for Israel and her true rights. His liberal views are rather disturbing and he propagates them from the Jewish Journal pages, deceiving any willing-to-be-deceived Jewish public.

If Mr. Eshman continues to go on believing and convincing others to believe that J Street, Jewish Voice for Peace, and other likeminded organizations – disruptive to Israel and can be called anti-Semitic – are supporting and helping Israel, in one way or another, he is fueling anti-Israel propaganda.

One can ask, did Mr. Eshman miss the signature endorsing the BDS movement at UCLA, a signature he probably endorses since he is following the liberal agenda that long ago deserted its support for Israel?

And that brings me to mention the so called Jewish members of the Supreme Court judges who do not know what the capital of Israel is and that people who were born in Jerusalem were in fact born in Israel. So these Jew-Am judges, with their decision not to allow a person born in Jerusalem to have in his passport stamped: “Born in Jerusalem, Israel” have de-facto deleted Jerusalem from the list of world’s capitals and left Israel a capital orphan.

Instead of going along with the existing Congressional Ruling, stating that Jerusalem is the Capital of Israel, these hubris Jew-Am judges let their liberal views and their support for an anti-Israel, deceitful president take over their senses and left Jerusalem in limbo while overruling Congress. And here we think that there is a balance of power in our land and the Supreme Court is not the Supreme Being!

Of course, we, those who support fairness and truth, expect that Congress overrules this maddening decision and names Jerusalem, again, as the Capital of Israel.

No matter what, the Jewish People do not need you, Mr. Eshman, or the USA Supreme Court to tell them what their capital is. The Jewish People know their capital well and no nation on earth can dictate to another sovereign nation its choice of Capital, not even imperial Obama, some Supreme Court judges, Tom Friedan, or you Mr. Eshman.

The case of Jerusalem is the kind that excites the BDS to go on BDS-ing Israel; the writings of Mr. Eshman, Friedman and their like encourage the BDS’s action and allows them to believe they are not only on the right path but in fact they are winning and they will bring Israel down.

We strongly suggest you end the war on Israel or the financial moguls, with our help, will bring the BDS down and you with it.

Oh, I forgot, the land from the River to the Sea, with it Jerusalem, legally – by undisputed international law – belongs to the Jewish People and I challenge you to prove to me it is not.
