In your recent appearance on the Zev Brenner Show, you came on for one reason, but you missed the point, and we would really appreciate if you can answer this question.
The reason you appeared on the show was to defend the RJC in face of recent criticism, but you left the main question unanswered. Therefore I’m here on the behalf of our readers, as a political website catering mainly to Orthodox Jews, we really would like to know, why is it that the RJC chose to ignore the Orthodox Jewish electorate in NYC and elsewhere?
The following article is from Jacob Kornbluh: This morning on Talkline communications – A Saturday night Jewish Radio program hosted by Zev Brenner – I had the honor to debate non other than Rabbi Shmuley Boteach.
Rabbi Shmuley, initially called in to respond to my criticism of the Republican Jewish Coalition as an organization that has failed the Jewish community, and for their misconduct in convening a leadership convention last week Shabbos. But other than defending the RJC, Rabbi Shmuley diverted the debate into a personal attack on me, accusing me of unethical violations for reporting out of a closed meeting with Netanyahu’s adviser last week.
Up and coming Orthodox blogger Jacob Kornbluh also used the word “unconscionable” on Monday in connection with the RJC, but instead of Kerry, he was referring to the fact that part of the RJC get together in Las Vegas was held on Shabbat. Kornbluh blasted the RJC’s “insensitivity towards one of its largest voting blocs, Orthodox Jews” and described its decision to convene on Shabbat “appalling and unconscionable.” -Haaretz
