A self appointed group of Jewish leaders have placed preconditions on The President Of The United States visiting Pittsburgh, even though the rabbi of the Tree of Life synagogue welcomes President Trump. (Rabbi Jeffrey Myers: Hate Is ‘Not A Political Issue.’)
Bend the Arc: Pittsburgh Steering Committee wrote an open letter to President Trump stating the following: “President Trump, you are not welcome in Pittsburgh until you fully denounce white nationalism…”
One of the many issues with this letter besides the obvious politization of tragedy is the lack of notoriety or esteem these activists hold in the Jewish community.
“I have done the deep journalism of typing the names of the eleven ‘Pittsburgh Jewish Leaders’ into Google. They’re not Jewish leaders. They’re just Democrat activists who happen to be Jewish. They don’t lead anything; they have an obscure activist group. You’re lying again,” Rebel Media founder Ezra Levant wrote in response to the New York Times‘ Maggie Haberman, who promoted the letter.

In other words they don’t represent the mainstream Jewish community of Pittsburgh, and certainly not The Orthodox community.
Leftists of all religious persuasions typically inflate their self-importance.
The Leader Of The Tree Of Life Congragation which was savagely Attacked has already welcomed The President. In addition prominent Rabbi and faith leader Rabbi Shmuley Boteach wrote in an article for The Hill: “As a Jew I am eternally grateful to President Trump for the unparalleled support he has shown Israel in the Oval Office.”
To be clear we have the Spiritual Leader Of The Tree Of Life, an Orthodox Rabbi and the Prime Minister Of Israel, standing with Trump against those falsely accusing the very President who moved the embassy of being a Jew hater.
