Bari Weiss Notes: Jewish Victims Are Forgotten and Overlooked Because They Are Not the Right Kind of Jews. And Because They Weren’t Beaten or Killed by the Right Kind of Antisemites.

See Being Jewish in an Unraveling America by Bari Weiss.
In the article it is noted that sympathy for attacks on Jews depends on the agenda of the attackers and what type of Jew is attacked.
One point the author makes in the article has to be strongly rebuked.

She states:

The attack in Texas, the reaction to it, and the widespread willingness in our culture to judge violent acts based on their political utility, augurs a darkening reality for the six million Jews living in what the Founders insisted was a new Jerusalem. And for that new Jerusalem itself.

Our Rebuke: There is no replacement for the real Jerusalem and those who believe otherwise are in danger of facing “Divine Wrath”.

As it says in Psalms 137 verses 5 and 6 as translated by

The Temple Mount

If I forget you, O Jerusalem,
let my right hand wither;
let my tongue stick to my palate
if I cease to think of you,
if I do not keep Jerusalem in memory
even at my happiest hour.

We condemn the ideological positions of Reform clergyman Charlie Cytron-Walker, who was one of the hostages that Bari Weiss wrote about.
