Federation’s JTNews Promotes Organization at War with Israel
The Mike Report recently shared with readers how the Seattle Jewish Federation’s JTNews was promoting and providing legitimacy to Seattle’s Jewish Voice for Peace (JVP), a group dedicated to the demographic if not military elimination of the Jewish state. JTNews incredibly includes the organization in their annual Guide to Jewish Washington, giving the group standing as a respected and legitimate member of the Seattle Jewish community. As an aside, JVP was again this year listed by the ADL as one of the top ten anti-Israel organizations in the country.
As part of their ongoing war against the Jewish state, Jewish Voice for Peace just this Friday urged participation in an effort to forcibly prevent an Israeli cargo ship from unloading at the Port of Tacoma today and in Seattle on Sunday.
Despite occasional claims to the contrary, our contributions to the Jewish Federation help fund the JTNews and their inclusion of Jewish Voice for Peace under our communal umbrella. While our umbrella must be wide and welcoming, must our charitable dollars contribute to the promotion of an organization engaged in economic warfare against the Jewish state?
