Why the Rabbis' Letter to John Kerry is Correct and the RCA and OU are Wrong for Denouncing It
|Click to Enlarge (found here)|
John Kerry is trying to divide Eretz Yisrael among 2 peoples - plain and simple. This letter tells it like it is - Hashem will punish those who try to do harm to the integrity of Eretz Yisrael for the Jewish people.
Unfortunately, the RCA and OU repudiated this letter (also found here and here and here) for reasons that they consider the wording in the letter "extreme and offensive rhetoric" and "personal venom and threats". It is nothing of the sort. Rather, it is telling it like it is as described by the Torah. Those who do harm to Israel - even while claiming that they are only helping it - will be punished. Plain and simple.
Don't you wish the RCA and OU leadership understood that simple fact?
