100 Rabbis: The SPLC Makes Life More Dangerous for Jews by Covering for Radical Islam
PJ Media ^ | SEP 08, 2020 | TYLER O'NEIL

Last week, a coalition of 100 Orthodox Jewish rabbis sent a letter to Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos, warning that Amazon Smile relies on a deceptive and dangerous “hate map” to exclude mainstream conservative and Christian organizations from the company’s charity program. They insisted that the Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC) actually makes America more dangerous for the Jewish community by downplaying the very real threat of radical Islamic organizations connected to terrorist groups.

“We represent Jewish rabbinic leaders in synagogues, schools and rabbinical seminaries across the United States,” the rabbis with the Coalition of Jewish Values (CJV) wrote in a letter first published by Fox News. “We write to highlight the fact that the SPLC ‘hate map’ is uniquely detrimental and even dangerous to the Jewish community, and to urge you directly to terminate the association of your generous AmazonSmile charity-support program with the SPLC and its ‘hate map.'”

The rabbis condemned the SPLC’s list of “hate groups” as “unfair, unreasonable, and biased.” Indeed, the SPLC routinely brands mainstream conservative and Christian organizations “hate groups,” including them on a list with the Ku Klux Klan.

“While the SPLC is careful not to denigrate the Bible or other religious texts directly, it frequently vilifies groups based upon nothing more than their advocacy for biblically based beliefs about sexual and family ethics that were uncontroversial a generation or two ago,” they noted. “Notably, groups which falsely paint others as ‘homophobic,’ ‘transphobic,’ and ‘bigoted’ simply for retaining traditional beliefs are not categorized as hateful by the SPLC.”

The SPLC also overlooks “groups which ally with international terror organizations, openly glorify murder under the guise of ‘resistance,’ and frequently descend into clearly anti-Semitic expression,” the rabbis warned. “The SPLC specifically avoids identifying radical Islamic groups as the leading source of modern-day anti-Semitic violence.”

You kind of make my point. No disrespect to the Jewish faith but why does it seem it takes Jews some length of time to wake up to the dangers that face them for who they are?

As I recall, SPLC labeled “The Salvation Army” and the “Fellowship of Christian Athletes” both as “hate organizations.”

Just like the Jews in Germany when the Nazis took over. Among German Jews there were optimists and pessimists.

The pessimists wound up in America. The optimists wound up in Auschwitz.

Even in Israel where being Islamosavvy is a key to survival, there is a Left faction that really believes peace is possible with those who would destroy them.

SPLC is an ally of Islam. Its founders Morris Deas & Chaim Potok are Jewish. The Orthodox rabbis get it, however.

They mostly vote Republican, too.
