Thank you President Trump. We could use him as prime minister of Israel. He has 20 20 vision. I know the liberal democrats are angry but Jewish blood is not cheap. What did the democrats do last eight years besides tie Israel’s hands and not allow building for Jews. Enough is enough. Let’s outvote every democrat. Please register to vote.

It may have gone through several twists and turns, but, B”H, common sense prevailed and you do not aid and abet your enemies

Foolish and short-sided. Donald Trump won with 46% of the vote. The majority of Americans are on the left and all demographic trends indicate, it will only get worse. How will Democrats treat Israel once they assume power again?

The real question should be, how will Hashem treat the Democrats since He is the only real power

How Israel is treated is how the Almighty wants to. If we keep the Torah we will be treated very well.

I can’t believe that Schumer and Nadler want Israel to allow these two Jew haters into Israel. We in New York must register every frum possible voter and get rid of all the liberal democrats. Agudath always tells people to vote. But we must do something not just make announcements in newspapers. Here is how. We must set up tables in Boro parks 13 ave,Flatbush ave L shul,crown heights 770 and all major shopping areas in all frum communities. We have thousands of voting registration applications and on the spot have people not yet registered fill them out. Every Shul… Read more »

These two anti semites have compared Israel to nazis. They have made all types of public statements against Jews. Even the lefty secular jewish organizations from ADL to AJC admit that they are anti Semitic. But because of their hatred of Trump they will throw Israel under the bus.

Pathetic! so your saying for some reason the israeli government just decided that there just not going to allow them entry…. just Shame on you! Coming to the defense of 2 Known anti semites.

Not anti-semetic, antisemitic.

They openly support boycotting Israel. That is antisemitic by definition. They openly accuse Israel of murdering “innocent children”. That is the classic blood libel. Omar accused Jews of bribing US congressmen to support Israel. They both support the terrorist front CAIR and have raised money for it. How can you pretend they are not antisemites?

Finally some sensible restrictions!!!!
How are these anti-Semitic Democrats permitted to spew so much venom!!!

August 15, 2019 5:48 pm

Personally, I don’t believe that Omar or Talib are anti-Semites. They are just anti-Israel. (it’s quite the jest that many Lubavitchers confidently state that ‘Israel is NOT a Jewish state. It’s a state where Jews live’ and they nevertheless say that anti-Isralism is anti-Semitism). that said, countless studies have indicated that the primary cause of racism and other forms of baseless bigotry (including anti-semitism) is ignorance of their culture and ways. So, even if they are anti-Semites (or at least they are definitely anti-Israel, and from Israel’s perspective that’s bad enough) wouldn’t the best thing be to bring them to… Read more »

If you think that these two Jew haters will be impressed about Israel,you must be smoking something. Trump was correct. You won’t convince these two haters of anything. They don’t want to even meet with Israeli officials. They have their Jew hatred agenda. Rav Yosef chaim zonnenfeld back in the early 1900s was asked by the British to join them in their anti Zionism being that he as a religious Jew was also anti zionistic. His response is an eye opener. He said the British oppose the Zionist because the Jew in them. And I oppose the Zionist because of… Read more »

You are not Milhouse. I am Milhouse and I do not endorse this message. Opposing Israel’s existence and supporting a “Palestinian” state in its place is antisemitism. There is no possible motive for taking such a position except antisemitism. Lubavitch is anti-zionist, which means we believe it was wrong to establish Israel in the first place, but since it is a place where Jews live its safety and welfare is of vital importance to us. An Arab state would r”l resume the Holocaust their grandparents joined in. That is why we support Tzahal and the Israeli economy, and why we… Read more »

To all those reading these hateful comments, they do not represent the feelings of many in the Chabad community. I think it’s a big mistake not to let these congresswomen visit Israel. Even though they’re anti Israel, we don’t ban people from countries because we don’t agree with their views. This is very bad PR for Israel and it’s so sad that Netanyahu is kow-towing to Trumps every whim. AIPAC agreed with me by the way.

The PR for Israel by letting in these two lefty radicals who despise Jews will make Israel look like an easy target. Maybe we should fly in all the neo Nazi members of Europe and America on free sponsored trip to Israel as well. This thinking is not normal. We need to be good to our friends and tough with our enemies. As Jews we don’t turn the other cheek. When someone who has a history and continues to hate Jews,you don’t give them an opportunity to further attack you. These two Jew haters had plans to have press conferences… Read more »

The views expressed here absolutely represent the overwhelming majority, almost 100%, of the Chabad community, and your views do not. Every country, including the USA, bans the entry of people whose views it finds undesirable and against its national interest. Why would any country allow such people entry? Letting them in would be bad PR, because they intended to use their visit to create anti-Israel propaganda.

And who cares what AIPAC thinks? AIPAC certainly doesn’t represent the Chabad community!

There are all kinds of views in the chabad community. Some are very liberal and only talk to fellow liberals. Some are strong Trump supporters and only talk to others who share that view. But chabad should really be about forgetting our political differences and have ahavas yisroel and achdus… even between ourselves!

Fight back against the Public Relations War that the left is engaged in. The CH voting community needs to be educated and organized. The left has figured out that a small group of passionate progressive people can take can control of the democratic primaries because most people are too lazy to vote on a day that they don’t have off from work. The Jewish community in CH can take the following steps: 1) Public meetings on Voter Education – process, where to vote, size of district – what varied benefits come from fed, state and city reps? Federal reps are… Read more »
