American Jews and the Trump Administration

An aspect of the election result is the hysterical reaction by liberal ‎segments of the Jewish community, which can be seen as an act of infamy.

After the election of perhaps the most pro-Israel U.S. administration in history, American Jews seem to have lost the plot. When Donald Trump was elected president of the U.S., many Jews sat shiva to mourn Hillary Clinton’s defeat as if it was a death in the family, making religion out of politics. A number of Conservative and Reform synagogues held special ‎mourning services to bewail the advent of fascism in America. One prominent Conservative ‎rabbi in New York compared the Trump victory to the rise of ‎Nazism prior to the Holocaust.‎ The essence of politics is persuasion; not hysterics.
