Prime Minister Netanyahu: Don't Meet With Donald Trump!
Dear Prime Minister Netanyahu,
We write as American Jewish Zionists, in response to your statement on Wednesday Dec. 9 that you “reject Donald Trump’s recent remarks about Muslims,” but will still meet with him. (http://www.timesofisrael.com/netanyahu-rejects-tru...)
Republicans and Democrats alike, including elected leaders of both parties, have described Trump's statements as racist, hateful, and beneath the dignity of any American. Muslim Americans deserve that their equality be championed by every potential political leader, just as Jewish Americans do - just as every American does.
The American Jewish community rejects Trump's hate on an organizational level, and based within Jewish values.
You, Prime Minister Netanyahu, have a powerful role to play in the Global Jewish community. You sitting with an unflinching symbol of hate and a loud mouthpiece for what's worst in American society is not only a source of Jewish embarrassment - it wrongly suggests that Jews stand with Trump.
Please do not meet with Donald Trump, Mr. Prime MInister. Call off the meeting.
