1,000 Rabbis Call on Obama: Make Mideast Peace a Top Priority

Our very own Shalom Rav is featured in this video by Brit Tzedek v’Shalom targeted at Obama, highlighting organizational heads and rabbis from Chicago with a personal ask on behalf of 1,000 American rabbis. Actually, 1,010. Read ’em.

Meanwhile, I hear Abe Foxman is furious that George Mitchell is slated to be Obama’s Mideast envoy — because he’s “too fair.”

“Sen. Mitchell is fair. He’s been meticulously even-handed,” said Abraham Foxman, national director of the Anti-Defamation League. “But the fact is, American policy in the Middle East hasn’t been ‘even handed’ — it has been supportive of Israel when it felt Israel needed critical U.S. support.”
“So I’m concerned,” Foxman continued. “I’m not sure the situation requires that kind of approach in the Middle East.”

SHOCKER!! I am smirking in victory. And Brit Tzedek, J Street, and Americans for Peace Now will be there to back him up when the anti-Semitism charges start flying. Sit down and enjoy the ride, Abe. The tables have turned.
