Rabbi Criticizes the Lobby

Florida rabbi, Bruce Warshal, finds that AIPAC exists and that it does not represent the best interests of "Israel and the United States, in the long run."

For that statement, he assures us that:

Beware that you are reading treasonable material. If you "out" the Israeli lobby and you are Gentile, you're branded an anti-Semite; if you are Jewish, you're obviously a self-hating Jew. The Jewish establishment abides no criticism of Israel. You don't agree with me? Take this example: Last month a pro-Palestinian play entitled My Name is Rachel Corrie was to open at the New York Theatre Workshop, a "progressive" company on East Fourth Street. The play is based on the writings of a young British girl who was crushed to death by an Israeli bulldozer when she was protesting the demolition of Palestinian homes in Gaza two years ago. Although the play was widely praised in London last year, it never opened in New York. The theater producers spoke to the ADL and other Jewish leaders, including big-money Jews on its board, and that was the end of that. But, of course, we don't "censor" discussion concerning Israel. We just politely give our opinions and the voice of the other side disappears.



So, you are in good company if you are a critic of The Lobby.

A couple weeks after hearing about the cancellation of Rachel Corrie, I read about a new PLAY in NYC on the holocaust.....thought the timing was a little too soon to go unnnoticed, but never heard anything.
