American Jews not permitted to criticize Israeli regime

The Israeli regime does not want to hear any criticism, even from Israel's closest friends and allies overseas.


Haaretz (Il), "Orthodox leader: U.S. Jews have no right to criticize Israel", 3 August 2004.

    A prominent member of America's Orthodox community, who was also a Senate staff member for three decades, spoke out on Sunday night against American Jews who publicly criticize Israeli policies.
    "An American who wants to take sides should make aliyah [immigrate to Israel]," said Rabbi Dr. David Luchins, a national associate vice president of the Orthodox Union (OU) and a national officer for the Jewish Council of Public Affairs. "Their kids should serve in the army. It's better for American Jews to stay out of Israeli politics."
    However, the former senior aide to Senator Daniel Patrick Moynihan added that it's "devastating" for American Jews to criticize Israeli policies in front of U.S. politicians or in ads in The New York Times.

    Legislation that would make Holocaust-denial committed overseas an offense under Israeli legal jurisdiction was approved unanimously in first reading by the Knesset on Tuesday.
    The passage of the measure would enable Israel to demand the extradition of Holocaust-deniers for prosecution.
