There is a constant refrain from American Jewish organizations that inevitably has lost this group support from young Jews. Older Jews control these organizations which insist that each and every act by the government Israel MUST be defended. As the Netanyahu government increasingly violates human rights and makes clear that Reform Jews are not really –JEWS! After all, religious political parties enable Netanyahu to continue in power.
The sight of Donald Trump and Ted Cruz being cheered by a Jewish organization is disgraceful. How many Jewish women between the ages of 18–40 will vote for Donald Trump who has insulted women and disparaged their dignity as a a person. How many will vote for Ted Cruz, the closest political leader today who would be supported by the KKK. Yet,older Jews in AIPAC applaud these fascist minded politicians. ]
As long as Jewish “leaders” act as though oppression of humans will be supported as long as oppressors claim to “support Israel,”then young Jews will simply ignore modern Judaism.
