Words of the Week: Elisha Wiesel

“These false charges of genocide against Israel are smears long used by critics who apply classical anti-Semitic tropes to the Jewish state. And they have consequences. These forms of blood libel fan the flames of hatred towards Jews as surely as the medieval claims once did that we murdered Jesus or were killing Christian infants. To utilize my father’s name in such vile accusations is so far beyond the pale that I am staggered by the silence in response.”

    I will write to Tlaib today about this…Just enrages me. The main thing I can think of to do is to write. I will mail my letter or postcard to the Congresswoman’s regional office, in the hope someone will read it. Just maddening on the part of the so-called left.

    Apropos of reading the whole article quoting Elisha Wiesel, I will also write to Sen, Schumer and Rep. Hakeem Jeffries to thank them for counteracting her comments.
