Part 4: 400 Rabbis Choose Politics Over Faith and A Station Wagon Full of Nuns
In a court of law, you can’t beat a station wagon filled with nuns!
The sweeping denunciation clearly touched a deep, right-wing nerve, since it prompted hysterical reactions like this one:[T]he rabbis efforts brought shame upon themselves, their holy profession and the entire Jewish people.A bit over the top, no? Or do rabbis no longer enjoy the freedom of speech if that speech includes criticizing Glenn Beck and Roger Ailes
From the site Yid With Lid:Groups Whose Quotes Used by Soros Group to Attack Glenn Beck, Repudiate Anti-Beck EffortAnd this [emphasis added]:Over the past few days, three of the groups used to corroborate the false charges raised by Jewish Funds For Justice have repudiated the letter arraigned by the George Soros proxy. All three weren’t contacted prior to the use of their names, disagreed with the thrust of the letter and were not happy that they were included. A fourth came out and said the letter was too one sided.And…this is just dopey for the very simple reason that all the JFSJ did in its ad was reference public quotes attributed to the three Jewish organizations (the Anti-Defamation League, Commentary, and the American Gathering of Jewish Holocaust Survivors). They are quotes critical of Beck’s Nazi rhetoric.
Those quotes are all on the record, and none of them are in question. Why would JFSJ need to ‘contact’ the groups before referencing their quotes? Why would JFsJ need to make sure the groups would be “happy” to be mentioned in the ad? It’s absurd. The JFSJ never claimed the groups were sponsors in the ad in any way
