    Default Shouting ‘Never Again,’ 1,000 Jewish Activists Shut Down Central Boston

    On the correct side of history

    Over 1,000 Jewish activists and other protesters shut down traffic in central Boston Tuesday evening to protest inhumane detainment of people hoping to immigrate to the U.S. at the southern border, the Boston Globe reported.

    The protests began at the city’s Holocaust memorial and chanted, sang and drummed their way to an ICE detention facility, where immigrants in Boston have been held while awaiting deportation. Protesters included leaders and members of IfNotNow, the Jewish social justice group, and was co-organized by Cosecha, the immigrant-rights group. The protests came just after 36 Jewish activists were arrested protesting outside an ICE facility in Elizabeth, New Jersey on Sunday.

    “I think it’s particularly important for Jews, who face anti-Semitism, and have an ancestral history of trauma, to speak out on behalf of other people,” Rabbi Becky Silverstein told the Globe.

    And it's not surprising then they get bitter, they cling to guns or religion or antipathy toward people who aren't like them or anti-immigrant sentiment

    The Jewish Electorate Institute’s latest poll confirms what those who closely follow the Jewish community and political opinion about Israel have long known: American Jews remain among the most anti-Trump religious groups.

    While the president’s support for Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s policies might endear him to evangelicals (his core base of support), it does absolutely nothing for him with American Jews. If Israel’s non-Jewish critics have a beef with our current stance toward Israel, they should take it up with right-wing evangelicals, on whom Trump is entirely dependent and who cheer his embrace of Netanyahu.

    The poll tells us:

    Nearly three-quarters (73 percent) of Jewish voters believe Jewish Americans are less secure than they were two years ago, 71 percent disapprove of the way President Trump has handled anti-Semitism, and nearly 60 percent believe that he bears at least some responsibility for the shootings at synagogues in Pittsburgh and Poway.

    Two-thirds of the Jewish electorate remains firmly aligned with the Democratic Party, and there has been no change in the percentage of Jewish voters identifying as Republicans since JEI’s October 2018 poll; it remains at 25 percent.

    Finally, the results demonstrate Jewish voters’ view of President Trump and how they plan to vote in the 2020 election: 71 percent disapprove of President Trumps’ overall job performance, 70 percent view him unfavorably, 67 percent would vote for a generic Democrat over President Trump, and 65 percent would vote for Democratic candidate Joe Biden over President Trump.
