Condemns City Council Resolution

Dear Editor,

I am Jewish and lived in Greensboro the first 22 years of my life.

I want to assure you and your readers that the Greensboro Jewish Federation speaks for no one other than themselves and most especially not “the Jews.”  The fact that the Greensboro Jewish Federation would publicly support a resolution before the Greensboro City Council supporting “peace” and bemoaning the “harm” caused to all “civilians” in Israel/Gaza/Greensboro is an action that most Jews who care about Israel and the survival of the Jewish People would neither support nor condone but only condemn in the strongest terms.

Shame on the purported Jewish leadership in Greensboro and shame on the City Council for considering any resolution other than one supporting the right of Israel to defend itself.
