What should be our reaction to the great campaign against the State of Israel that’s being conducted by the Reform Jews and all the Jewish liberal organizations like the UJA and the American Jewish Committee? And they even appeal to the United States Government, to the Congress, to stop giving support to Israel because they are mistreating the poor Palestinian Arabs.
Now, I’m not a Zionist. Very far from it. But there must be a certain amount of yosher, a certain amount of decency. Even the irreligious Jews in Eretz Yisrael are fighting for their lives. They’re fighting for their lives! They have bitter enemies, terrorists who are killing Jews – private people, innocent people – for nothing. So what can they do?! You have to defend yourself!
And so if they’re throwing Molotov cocktails at you, what should you do? Just thumb your nose at them? And therefore the Reform Jews are the criminals. They’re the ones who are the mosrim. They’re the enemies of the Jewish people. They’re appealing to the United States Government to stop helping the State of Israel because Israel is doing terrible things to the poor Palestinian Arab! What should be our reaction? Our reaction should be not a penny to UJA! Not a penny to the Federation! Not only that, we should send letters to them telling them never will we help you with even one dollar because you are enemies of the Jewish people. That should be our reaction.
