    Jewish groups accuse Donald Trump of echoing ‘racist talking points of white nationalists’

    Anti-Defamation League and J Street criticise US president for using Israel ‘as a shield’ in his attack on four congresswomen

      The president said the four Democratic politicians — Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, Rashida Tlaib, Ilhan Omar and Ayanna Pressley — could go back to their "broken and crime-infested" countries if they hated America.
      “We all know that AOC and this crowd are a bunch of Communists, they hate Israel, they hate our own Country,” he tweeted on Monday, referring to Ms Ocasio-Cortez and the three other congresswomen.
      He later added: “We will never be a socialist or communist country. If you are not happy here, you can leave!”
      Ms Omar responded on Twitter, telling Mr Trump: “You are stoking white nationalism (because) you are angry that people like us are serving in Congress and fighting against your hate-filled agenda.”
      The president's comments were condemned almost unanimously by Democrats as well as by several members of his own party.
      Mitt Romney, a Republican senator in Utah who was the party's presidential nominee in 2012, said Mr Trump's language was “destructive, demeaning, and disunifying.”
      Jewish groups also criticised the tone of the president's remarks.

      “As Jews, we are all too familiar with this kind of divisive prejudice,” said Jonathan Greenblatt, chief executive of the Anti-Defamation League.
      “While ADL has publicly disagreed with these congresswomen on some issues, the president is echoing the racist talking points of white nationalists and cynically using the Jewish people and the state of Israel as a shield to double down on his remarks.”
      He added: “Politicising the widespread, bipartisan support for Israel and throwing around accusations of antisemitism is damaging to the security of Israel and the Jewish community. He should lead by example, stop politicising these issues and stop smearing members of Congress.”
      The liberal Jewish group J Street said it was "appalled by the ongoing torrent of racist incitement that President Trump continues to direct against progressive women of colour in Congress."

      A statement released by the group continued: “We refuse to allow the real threat of antisemitism to be weaponised and exploited by those who themselves share a large part of the responsibility for the rise of white nationalist and antisemitic violence in this country.”
      In Britain, the Board of Deputies president Marie van der Zyl said Mr Trump's remarks were “appalling and unjustifiable”.
      She said: “Whatever one’s political disagreements, telling people to ‘go back home to where they came from’ can never be the right response. It is also wrong to drag Israel in to these undignified tirades.”

      TYPICAL!!!!! Trump goes after this OMAR for telling the 100% TRUTH about AIPAC Jewish power in our Congress and the Jews call him a "WHITE NATIONALIST"????? When are White Christians going to WAKE UP to the ORGANIZED JEWISH ESTABLISHMENT in this nation and their agenda and stop being worried about these Anti-White Communists calling them, "Anti-Semetic"????? They're ANTI-WHITE CHRISTAIN and their political agenda is a NATION WRECKING AGENDA of OPEN BORDERS, MASS IMMIGRATION, SPEECH/HATE CRIME LAWS, GUN CONTROL/GUN CONFISCATION, LATE TERM ABORTION, LBGT TYRANNY, Continued $$$$ to the Racist Supremacist State of Israel, etc. etc. etc. The Organized Jewish Establishment is NO FRIEND of this nation and allies itself with other ENEMIES of this nation.

    We need to cut off the 8 BILLION a year we give Israel for decades!

    They need to make peace and solve their problems without our money!

    They USE their religion as "talking points" for us to give them billions of our dollars and protect them. The hell with this!

    They want us to have open borders...but they do not want these "refugees" in their country.

    They have a WALL we paid for...but they do not want us to protect OUR border and they have the NERVE to protest detention centers.

    How about we ship 25 million illegals to Israel. Are they on the "migrant pact" list?

    Is Israel and the Jews really our friend? Or just the neighbor who keeps asking for the cup of sugar and never pay it back!

    How Jews have reacted to Trump’s tweet targeting some Democratic congresswomen

    NEW YORK (JTA) — President Donald Trump’s comments on Sunday calling for some Democratic congresswomen to “go back” to their countries of origin have been widely condemned as racist.
    “Why don’t they go back and help fix the totally broken and crime infested places from which they came,” the president wrote on in one of a number of tweets aimed at what he called “‘Progressive’ Democrat Congresswomen.”
    Despite not naming them all, most have assumed Trump was referring to four women of color: Reps. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez of New York, Ilhan Omar of Minnesota, Ayanna Pressley of Massachusetts and Rashida Tlaib of Michigan. They are all U.S. citizens and only Omar was born abroad, in Somalia.
    In a series of follow-up tweets, Trump said the representatives all “hate Israel with a true and unbridled passion” and have “made Israel feel abandoned by the U.S.”
    The president presumably was referring to the rising wave of Israel criticism in the Democratic Party that some of these congresswomen have helped to spearhead. Omar specifically came under fire earlier this year for some comments about the American Israel Public Affairs Committee that some took to be anti-Semitic. Tlaib took heat as well for comments on Israel’s founding after the Holocaust, which some saw as revisionist.
    “We all know that AOC and this crowd are a bunch of Communists, they hate Israel, they hate our own Country,” he wrote.
    For Jewish groups and lawmakers on both sides of the aisle, Trump’s comments have struck an intense chord. Here’s how many of them have responded.
    The Republican Jewish Coalition said it agreed with a comment by Sen. Lindsey Graham in response to Trump’s tweets calling the Democratic congresswomen “a bunch of communists” and saying “They hate Israel. They hate our own country.”
    Halie Soifer, the executive director of the Jewish Democratic Council of America, called Trump “America’s ‘Racist in Chief'” in a statement denouncing the comment.
    Jonathan Greenblatt, the national director of the Anti-Defamation League, called the comments “flat-out racist” and “xenophobic.” He also criticized Trump for “using Israel to defend his blatant racism.”
    Abraham Foxman, the former longtime director of the ADL, called the tweet “one of the oldest xenophobic prejudiced comments expressed by bigots in our country.”
    The American Jewish Committee praised diversity in response to Trump’s comments. “Surely we can have policy debates in this country without resorting to potshots at our opponents’ identities or origins,” the organization said.
    The Simon Wiesenthal Center said “Every American came from somewhere. Time for everyone in #WashingtonDC to drop the identity politics #racism.”
    Bend the Arc: Jewish Action called Trump “a racist and white supremacist” and criticized Republicans for not condemning the remarks.
    Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y. asked on Twitter, “Is the Republican silence over President @realDonaldTrump’s racism agreement or embarrassment?”
    Sen. Bernie Sanders, D-Vt., described the president as “a liar, a fraud, a narcissist and a bully” in response to the comments.
    Rep. Elissa Slotkin, D-Mich., called the comments “racist and hateful.”
    “Telling a group of American women of color to go back to their country is fundamentally un-American,” she wrote on Twitter.
    Rep. Eliot Engel, D-N.Y., condemned the comments on Twitter, calling them “xenophobic.”

    Well at least the Republican Jewish Coalition supported Trump and Lindsey Graham on their comments.
