Insulting attack

When I created Rabbis for Romney prior to the 2012 election, I was attacked by 1,600 Rabbis for Obama. Liberal rabbis are doing so again following the article “Rabbi for Trump seeks ‘like’-minded Jews” published in this paper on Dec. 31, 2015. Such is the case of the letter written by Rabbi Alan Cohen (Jan. 4, 2016), in which he stated “the content is an embarrassment to the rabbinate.” He is entitled to his opinion, but that comment is personally insulting. This article was picked up by Jewish newspapers around the world, including Israel, because it is newsworthy.

Is there a hidden agenda?

I agree that it’s a noble cause to Get Out the Vote (Listening Post, Jan. 21, 2016) that Barbara Holzmark, the legislative chair of National Council of Jewish Women-Greater Kansas City Section, is pursuing. But, it should be noted and made clear to readers that JoCo MoveOn and True Blue Women, also mentioned in the article, have their designs on getting out just Democrat voters. Both of the latter organizations are progressive activist groups interested only in Democrat issues.
