The Algemeiner—Leading US Jewish Groups Laud Trump’s ‘Clear, Forceful’ Holocaust Commemoration Speech:

Leading American Jewish groups were quick to praise President Donald Trump’s forthright condemnation of antisemitism during a Holocaust commemoration speech earlier today.

Speaking on behalf of the Conference of Presidents of Major American Jewish Organizations, Stephen Greenberg, its Chairman and Malcolm Hoenlein, its Executive Vice Chairman/CEO, noted appreciatively that Trump “clearly and forcefully condemned all forms of anti-Semitism, calling out Holocaust denial, threats to Israel’s existence, anti-Semitic discourse and rhetoric and attacks on Jewish communities.”

Anti-Defamation League CEO Jonathan Greenblatt commented, “It deeply matters that President Trump used the power of his office to stand against anti-Semitism and hate and to honor the memory of the six million Jews and millions of others murdered in Europe.” Greenblatt encouraged Trump to “continue to use his bully pulpit to speak out against anti-Semitism, bigotry, and hatred in all forms. We urge the president and his administration to act to protect targeted communities against hate crime and discrimination.”

Similarly warm reactions to the speech came from the Republican Jewish Coalition, which praised Trump for “speaking from the heart,” and the American Jewish Committee, which highlighted the President’s “empathy with the Jewish people, and commitment to combat all forms of hatred and violence towards Jews.”

Not all reactions were positive, however. Bend the Arc Jewish Action, a progressive civil rights organization, argued that Trump’s speech “will not excuse his administration’s overt embrace of white supremacy and white nationalism…Americans and the Jewish community in particular are not fooled by Trump’s pleasant-sounding words.” The organization’s CEO, Stosh Cotler, authored an op-ed for the left-wing Alternet site earlier this week headlined, “The Stain of Antisemitism at the White House Isn’t Going Away.”

The Anne Frank Center, another progressive Jewish organization that has stoked allegations about antisemitism in the White House, awarded Trump a C- grade for his speech.

SnyderTalk Comment:

Below is a video of the president’s speech:

Now, take a look at these articles:

Doing what Yahweh wants him to do is not going to make President Trump Mister Popularity on the global stage.  Few people have what it takes to do what they think is right in the face of criticism and ridicule.  Thankfully, the president does.  So does Ivanka Trump.

The German reaction to Ivanka’s remarks about her father is disheartening if not unexpected.

Erdogan is a nut, a dangerous nut, but a nut nonetheless.

With each passing day, we are learning more about how bad the Iran nuclear deal really is.  I’m glad that the president is willing to get tough with global pariahs, including Iran and North Korea.

Switching Gears Slightly

See “Judge Who Blocked Trump Sanctuary City Order Bundled $200K for Obama”.  That fact tells us a lot.

“If My people who are called by My Name humble themselves and pray and seek My face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, will forgive their sin and will heal their land.” (2 Chronicles 7: 14)

Change that Yahweh calls “good” begins in the hearts of believers—people who are recognizable because they are different.

We are different because we belong to Him and are called by His Name.  We are Yahweh’s people, His followers.

“The glory which You have given Me I have given to them, that they may be one, just as We are one; I in them and You in Me, that they may be perfected in unity, so that the world may know that You sent Me, and loved them, even as You have loved Me. Father, I desire that they also, whom You have given Me, be with Me where I am, so that they may see My glory which You have given Me, for You loved Me before the foundation of the world.” (John 17: 22-24)
