On Wednesday, the National Council of Young Israel (NCYI) addressed criticism of President Donald Trump following a synagogue shooting in Pittsburgh that represents the worst attack on Jews in the US in the nation’s history. NCYI counts 25,000 families among its members at 135 branch synagogues across the globe, in the United States, Israel, and Canada.

“We were horrified to hear the news about the anti-Semitic murderous rampage against Jews praying at Congregation Etz Chaim in Pittsburgh,” said NCYI in a statement published by Arutz Sheva. “Like our fellow Jewish organizations, we released a statement expressing unity with the victims, and we reached out to our Young Israel Synagogue several blocks away to offer assistance in the aftermath of this tragedy. Our hearts ache and our souls cry out for the shattered families in Pittsburgh.

“The strong condemnation by elected officials from both political parties, and especially President Trump and his administration, were clearly heartfelt and we very much appreciate it. President Trump’s decision to visit Congregation Etz Chaim, as well as the hospital in order to spend time with those wounded in the attack, together with his wife Melania, daughter Ivanka, son-in-law Jared Kushner and members of his administration, is a very important act of solidarity with our community.

“We are saddened that some, even within our Jewish community, have attacked the president and his policies instead of using this period as one of healing. This is not a time for political attacks. The mass murderer who targeted Jews in the Pittsburgh attack opposed President Trump and penned vicious things about him. President Trump is clearly not responsible for the deadly shooting, and his response to the attack and his strong words against anti-Semitism are greatly needed and appreciated. Those who have taken to criticizing the president were doing so prior to this horrific mass murder occurred, and it is unseemly that they would use this massacre to denounce the president at this time.”

The statement continued by lauding Trump as “the best friend Israel has ever had in the White House,” noting that he “has stood up and defended Israel more strongly than any president before him” and “visited Israel on his first foreign trip,” becoming “the first president to visit and pray at the Western Wall while in office.”

Pro-Israel Officials, Pro-Israel Policy
The organization also expressed gratitude to Trump for “appoint[ing] the most pro-Israel Ambassador to Israel ever appointed, Ambassador David Friedman, a Young Israel member who assisted with President Trump’s decision to move the U.S. Embassy to Jerusalem and recognize Jerusalem as Israel’s capital” and for “treat[ing] its consulate in Jerusalem like any other consulate . . . rather than having it act like an embassy to the Palestinian Authority that reports directly to Washington, DC.”

The statement continued, “The leading anti-Semitic nation in the world is Iran, which regularly calls for Israel’s destruction and welcomes Holocaust deniers. President Trump has taken strong action by sanctioning Iran and ending the nuclear deal that enabled Iran to increase its defense budget by 40%. Iran is the leading supporter of Hamas and Hezbollah, two major terrorist organizations committed to Israel’s destruction. President Trump also crushed ISIS, which has been an anti-Semitic terrorist organization. No U.S. President has taken stronger action against these entities than President Trump.

“President Trump has spoken openly and proudly about his deep love for his daughter and advisor Ivanka Trump, who converted to Judaism, his son-in-law Jared Kushner, who is Jewish, and his three Jewish grandchildren. The President also has an Orthodox Jewish advisor in Jason Greenblatt, his Special Representative for International Negotiations and Middle East Envoy. UN Ambassador Nicki Haley has done an amazing job standing up for Israel at the UN and National Security Advisor John Bolton has a long history of being a great friend to Israel, and he has continued that friendship in his current position. Vice President Mike Pence has given extraordinary speeches of support to Israel in the Knesset and in commemoration of Israel’s 69th Anniversary, and he helped repair Jewish graves in St. Louis when they were vandalized.

“One does not have to be a supporter of the president to hear the heartbreak in his voice when he made multiple statements concerning the tragedy, each statement getting stronger and stronger in tone. Israel’s Education and Diaspora Affairs Minister, Naftali Bennett called President Trump’s comments the toughest comments ever made by a president against anti-Semitism. President Trump called anti-Semitism a ‘historic evil,’ late

在匹兹堡发生可怕的反犹太主义袭击之后,一名代表东正教会堂的伞式组织为唐纳德特朗普总统辩护后对他进行了批评。

通过:与以色列工作人员联合

星期三,全国以色列青年理事会(NCYI)在匹兹堡的一次犹太教堂射击之后发表了对唐纳德特朗普总统的批评,这是美国历史上对美国犹太人的最严重袭击事件。 NCYI在全球135个分支犹太教堂,美国,以色列和加拿大的会员中拥有25,000个家庭。

“我们很震惊地听到关于犹太人在匹兹堡会众Etz Chaim祈祷的反犹太人凶残暴行的消息,”NCYI在Arutz Sheva发表的一份声明中说道。 “就像我们的犹太人组织一样,我们发表了一份声明,表达了与受害者的团结,并且在几个街区之外我们向我们的青年以色列犹太教堂伸出援手,在这场悲剧发生后提供帮助。我们的心痛苦,我们的灵魂为匹兹堡破碎的家庭欢呼。

“来自两个政党的民选官员,特别是特朗普总统及其政府的强烈谴责显然是由衷的,我们非常感激。特朗普总统决定访问会众Etz Chaim以及医院,以便与他的妻子梅拉尼亚,女儿伊万卡,女婿贾里德库什纳及其政府成员一起,与袭击中受伤的人共度时光。非常重要的声援我们社区的行为。

“我们感到悲伤的是,即使在我们的犹太社区内,有些人也攻击了总统及其政策,而不是将这段时期作为治疗之一。现在不是政治攻击的时候。在匹兹堡袭击事件中针对犹太人的大屠杀者反对特朗普总统,并写下了关于他的恶毒事件。特朗普总统显然不对这次致命射击负责,他非常需要和赞赏他对这次袭击的反应以及他反对反犹太主义的强烈言论。那些批评总统的人在这场可怕的大屠杀事件发生之前就已经这样做了,而且他们现在会利用这次大屠杀谴责总统是不合​​时宜的。“

声明继续称赞特朗普是“以色列在白宫曾经有过的最好的朋友”,并指出他“比以往任何一位总统都更坚强地站起来为以色列辩护”和“在他第一次外国访问时访问了以色列”。成为“在任期间第一位访问并在西墙祈祷的总统。”

亲以色列官员,亲以色列政策
该组织还感谢特朗普“任命以色列最有亲以色列的以色列大使,大使弗里德曼大使,一位年轻的以色列成员,协助特朗普总统决定将美国大使馆迁往耶路撒冷并承认耶路撒冷为以色列资本“和”用于“像在任何其他领事馆一样对待其在耶路撒冷的领事馆。 。 。而不是让它像直接向华盛顿特区报告的巴勒斯坦权力机构大使馆那样行事。“

声明继续说,“世界上主要的反犹太国家是伊朗,它经常要求以色列的破坏,并欢迎大屠杀否认者。特朗普总统采取强硬措施,制裁伊朗并结束核协议,使伊朗国防预算增加40%。伊朗是致力于以色列破坏的两个主要恐怖组织哈马斯和真主党的主要支持者。特朗普总统还粉碎了伊斯兰国,伊斯兰国一直是反犹太主义的恐怖主义组织。没有美国总统对这些实体采取比特朗普总统更强硬的行动。

“特朗普总统公开和自豪地谈到他对他的女儿和顾问伊万卡特朗普的热爱,他转变为犹太教,他的女婿贾里德库什纳是犹太人,他的三个犹太孙子。总统还在杰森格林布拉特,他的国际谈判和中东特使问题特别代表中有一位正统的犹太顾问。联合国大使尼基·海利在联合国和国家安全顾问中为以色列做出了出色的工作。约翰·博尔顿长期以来一直是以色列的好朋友,他在目前的职位上继续保持这种友谊。副总统迈克彭斯在以色列议会和纪念以色列成立69周年之际发表了非凡的支持,他帮助修复了圣路易斯的犹太人坟墓。

“当他就悲剧发表多项声明时,一个人不必成为总统的支持者,听到他的声音令人心碎,每个声明都变得越来越强烈。以色列教育和侨民事务部长Naftali Bennett称特朗普总统的评论是总统反对反犹太主义的最强烈言论。特朗普总统称反犹太主义是一种“历史性的邪恶”
