Republican Jewish Coalition Misses the Mark

After a slew of anti-Semitic incidents received by a number of journalists, the Republican Jewish Coalition finally took action to address the issue. However, they missed a large point of the necessary message: the overwhelming majority of incidents come from Trump supporters and have been directed at journalists who have made any criticism of the presumptive Republican nominee, Donald Trump.

NJDC Calls on Author to Apologize

WASHINGTON, DC -- Today, the National Jewish Democratic Council, released the following statement in response to the Breitbart article titled, "Bill Kristol: Republican Spoiler, Renegade Jew."

"While we disagree deeply with Bill Kristol on many issues, there is no question that Breitbart's attack on Mr. Kristol as a 'Renegade Jew' is completely unacceptable. The author of the piece, David Horowitz, specifically chose to include 'Renegade Jew' in the post’s headline and should know better. We share the widespread and growing disappointment – including by the Anti-Defamation League – in Breitbart's inappropriate and offensive headline and we believe that more must be done. Mr. Horowitz must apologize immediately and help ensure that these sort of attacks must not be allowed to become the new normal. Andrew Breitbart, z"l, would have been deeply ashamed."
