Shame On Any Jewish Organization Who Hosts Or Invites Peter Beinart

In mid-March, I wrote an article entitled “Peter Beinart[1]: Represents Zionism Like a Black KKK Member Represents African-Americans” — and sure enough today it’s widely accepted that Peter Beinart is well outside the consensus of the Jewish community. Why does: any synagogue or Jewish organization allow this dangerous man to speak ? This shameful man shouldn’t be given a forum in any Jewish audience and is outside the consensus. Why host someone universally reviled? Why offer such a man a forum.

In a clear case of the chickens coming home to roost Beinart – after being panned in New York Magazine recently, also saw recent headlines like (Politico[2]): “The Peter Beinart conversation is over”, and in: Tablet[3]: “”The Peter Beinart article to end them all (literally).”: Despite all the media attention he has received, the book hasn’t sold well, and Beinart: outside of the liberal elite media world of: New York: is a non-entity.Want to know how outside the consensus this man is? The worst President in recent years onIsrael: — Obama — is strengthening Beinart. From The New Yorker Profile on Beinart: “As [Obama] talked to Beinart, according to those who were within earshot, the president had a message for the embattled author: “Hang in there.” Obama is telling Beinart to hang in there — and Beinart: is good for the Jews ?

The great Zionist leader: Ze’ev Jabotinsky[4]: said it so very clearly many years ago about people like Beinart, and it rings true today: “What interest can the Jewish nation have in individuals whose supreme pride consists in the fact that they have renounced their own people?”Beinart is a shame to the Jewish community — and the community should heed the words of: Ze’ev Jabotinsky[5].

Beinart doesn’t represent the Jewish community any more than a black member of the KKK would represent African-Americans. Beinart does so much damage – no one needs to help him do more by allowing him the respect of an audience.

P.S. – My offer still exists to make: a 6 figure payment to you if you will speak in three Middle Eastern Arab countries as well as: Gaza, and speak in open advertised forums including Mosques and Universities. Not surprisingly you haven’t responded.
