During the last eight years I have been troubled by the way Democrats and President Obama have treated people of the Jewish faith like myself. The absolute disregard for the Jewish people and more specifically our great ally Israel and her people has been alarming. Today’s UN Resolution is further proof that President Obama and his liberal anti-semitic allies have no desire to see a strong, safe Israel for her people.
Having grown up in suburban Kansas City in a reform Jewish household, my family belonged to the Kansas City Jewish Community Center, where families, both Jewish and non Jewish, enjoyed various recreational activities. It was a place of acceptance and community, today I don’t feel the same sentiment coming from the leaders of our nation.
It is disturbing to me that anti-semitism continues to grow within the Democratic Party as top level Democrats promote ultra liberal Representative Keith Ellison’s bid for Chair of the Democratic National Committee. Keith Ellison has defended and supported anti-semitic leaders like Louis Farrakhan, and has been caught on tape repeatedly expressing prejudiced views against Jews.
Today’s events in which the United States abstained from voting in the United Nation Security Council vote is deeply harmful to the future of the state of Israel. This December surprise coming from the Obama Administration today is difficult to swallow but together we can make a difference if we speak out. The actions made today do not aid in the development and the future of peace in the Middle East. It is shameful and reprehensible that the Obama Administration decided to not use our veto on the resolution. The United States and the Jewish people could not be more blessed to have Donald J. Trump and his administration as the next President of the United States.
I am proud to have supported Donald J. Trump throughout his election and I look forward to our soon to be President working tirelessly to reverse the suffering that the Jewish people have faced under the Obama administration. Jews both in America and throughout the world will have a friend and an ally in the Trump administration. As UN Ambassador, Nikki Haley will not allow anti-semitic resolutions to come through the United Nations. As Secretary of State, Rex Tillerson will promote a free world friendly to all faiths. And as Attorney General, Jeff Sessions will not allow anti-semitic hate to go unchecked.
I ask you to join the Young Republican National Federation as we look forward to a great year in 2017. I am proud to have been able to work with the Young Republican National Federation to advance the future of those who share my faith. I wish a Happy Hanukkah to each of you.
