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.

一个代表东正教会堂的伞形组织为唐纳德·特朗普总统辩护,此前在匹兹堡发生恐怖的反犹太袭击后,特朗普受到批评。

星期三,以色列全国青年委员会(NCYI)在匹兹堡的一次犹太教堂枪击案中对唐纳德·特朗普总统提出批评,这是美国历史上对犹太人最严重的袭击。NCYI在美国、以色列和加拿大的135个犹太教堂分支机构的成员中有25000个家庭。

Ncyi在Arutz Sheva发表的一份声明中说:“我们听到有关反对犹太人在匹兹堡的Etz Chaim会众祈祷的杀戮暴行的消息感到震惊。”“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,我们联系了几个街区外的以色列青年会堂,为这场悲剧的后果提供帮助。我们的心痛,我们的灵魂为匹兹堡破碎的家庭呐喊。

“两党民选官员的强烈谴责,特别是特朗普总统和他的政府,显然是衷心的,我们非常感激。特朗普总统决定访问伊茨查姆会众,以及医院,以便花时间与那些在袭击中受伤的人在一起,与他的妻子梅兰妮娅,女儿伊万卡,女婿贾里德库什纳和他的行政人员,是一个非常重要的团结我们的社区的行动。

“我们感到遗憾的是,有些人,甚至在我们的犹太社区,攻击总统及其政策,而不是利用这一时期作为一种治疗。现在不是政治攻击的时候。在匹兹堡袭击事件中以犹太人为目标的大规模杀人犯反对特朗普总统,并对他进行了恶毒的描述。特朗普总统显然对这起致命的枪击事件不负任何责任,他对这次袭击的反应和他对反犹太主义的强硬言论是非常需要和赞赏的。那些批评总统的人在这起可怕的大规模谋杀发生之前就已经这样做了,而此时他们利用这场大屠杀谴责总统是不恰当的。”

声明继续称赞特朗普是“以色列在白宫有过的最好的朋友”,并指出特朗普“比他之前的任何一位总统都更坚定地站起来捍卫以色列”,“在他第一次出国访问时访问了以色列”,成为“第一位在西墙任职期间访问和祈祷的总统”。

亲以色列官员,亲以色列政策

该组织还感谢特朗普“任命以色列有史以来最亲以色列的大使、年轻的以色列成员大卫弗里德曼大使,协助特朗普总统决定将美国大使馆迁往耶路撒冷,承认耶路撒冷是以色列的首都”,以及“对待其驻以色列领事馆”。耶路撒冷和其他领事馆一样。…而不是让它像一个大使馆一样直接向华盛顿特区报告。

声明继续说:“世界上主要的反犹太国家是伊朗,伊朗经常要求以色列毁灭,并欢迎否认大屠杀的人。特朗普总统采取了强有力的行动,批准了伊朗,结束了核协议,使伊朗的国防预算增加了40%。伊朗是哈马斯和真主党的主要支持者,这两个主要的恐怖组织致力于以色列的毁灭。特朗普总统还镇压了一直是反犹太恐怖组织的伊西斯。没有一位美国总统比特朗普总统对这些实体采取更强有力的行动。

特朗普总统公开自豪地谈到了他对女儿和顾问伊万卡·特朗普的深深爱。特朗普转而信仰犹太教,他的女婿贾里德·库什纳是犹太人,还有他的三个犹太孙子。总统在杰森·格林布拉特也有一位正统的犹太顾问,他是国际谈判的特别代表和中东特使。联合国大使尼基·哈雷在联合国为以色列做了一件了不起的工作,国家安全顾问约翰·博尔顿作为以色列的好朋友有着悠久的历史,他在目前的立场上继续保持着这种友谊。副总统彭斯(Mike Pence)在以色列议会和纪念以色列69周年时发表了支持以色列的特别演讲,他还帮助修复了圣路易斯被破坏的犹太坟墓。
