Jewish groups slam Trump over anti-Semitic trope
Americans for Peace Now (APN) Outraged by Trump’s “Disloyalty” Comments
Americans for Peace Now is outraged by President Trump’s statement suggesting that the vast majority of American Jews are disloyal, and strongly condemns it. This outrageous, anti-Jewish slur fans the flames of Jew hatred in the US and puts American Jews in danger.
Trump’s comment also poisons US-Israel relations, attempting to shatter bipartisan US support for Israel’s security and wellbeing, for Trump’s own political gain.
APN urges everyone in public life – both in the United States and in Israel – to stop playing partisan games with Israel and with the US-Israel relationship.
APN commends fellow American Jewish groups who called out Trump for his despicable statement accusing American Jews of disloyalty. We call on those who have not yet done so – including the Conference of Presidents of Major American Jewish Organizations, of which we are a member – to reject Trump’s divisive, shameful, unpresidential, anti-Jewish, and un-American rhetoric.
Americans for Peace Now, the sister-organization of Israel’s peace movement Shalom Achshav (Peace Now) is a non-partisan non-profit organization that educates and persuades the American public and its leadership – regardless of party affiliation — to support and adopt policies that will lead to comprehensive, durable, Israeli-Palestinian and Israeli-Arab peace based on the two-state solution: the sovereign state of Israel and a sovereign Palestinian state in the West Bank and Gaza Strip.
