As Candidates Cross the Line, Where's Republican Jewish Leadership?

If only there were an organization that advocated for Jewish and pro-Israel values within the Republican Party. The National Jewish Democratic Council does not hesitate to publicly speak out when Democrats cross the line. The public silence of the Republican Jewish Coalition on Donald Trump's repeated offensive and bigoted statements, not to mention his claim that he would be "neutral" between Israel and the Palestinians, is inexcusable. They should be ashamed of themselves. Or do they agree with Trump? Republican Jews utterly failed to prevent the rise of Donald Trump.

Every four years, we hear about how this will finally be the year that more Jews vote Republican. Not this time around. The Democratic Party remains the natural home of American Jews.
