Bend the arc , Jewish for peace and JSteet are what we refer to as
. Like the
who sent Jews to their death. The people who signed this letter and those who support them want to send the state of Israel to it’s death.
As an israeli Jew I see no difference between these organizations and David Duke. Both are regarded as the enemy of my people.

Let’s be clear guys. The losers who signed the disgusting and divisive letter are no leaders of no Jewish community. These are radical left wingers communists and socialists who advocate for Israel destruction. They are Israel’s worst enemies ( they side with Iran and supported Iran ) and America’s worst enemies. They do not represent the Jewish community but a small group of mentally sick individuals who wish to sow division and hate in our society.
To our amazing
who is by the far Israel greatest friend ( unlike these losers who signed this garbage ) , you are
welcome anywhere and anytime. We, real patriotic Jews who love America and Israel ( and now Brazil ) will always be on your side to fight against socialists and communists like the losers who signed this letter.

You people are disgraceful
Trying to lay this at the foot of our President who is a total supporter of the Jews! This political stunt for democrats won’t work!
Shame on you and your leaders. I am praying for those families. Not right

I am so deeply saddened by what has happened in my hometown of Pittsburgh, a special city with such heart, soul, and goodness. I pray for all affected. I reiterate the sentiment that Donald Trump, who has espoused such hateful rhetoric since his candidacy, should not visit Pittsburgh until he denounces all forms of hate and bigotry.

How dare you. You create a narrative that our President Trump is a racist and then you attack him on the basis of your created narrative. Calling Republicans racists has been a standard baseless charge for decades. It is hate speech. You should be ashamed. President Trump is the elected president of our country and is entitled to the respect that accompanies the office. It is well past time that you recognize the results of the last presidential election. President Trump is a friend of the Jewish people and of Israel. His economic policy has done more to help the needy than all your empty words of compassion. You do not speak for the Jewish people and your actions show a lack of respect for the murdered Jews and a commitment to partisanship. Shame on you.

President Donald Trump has been the strongest supporter of Israel that the US has had for quite a while. He cannot be blamed for the horror in the synagogue. Open your eyes and see the truth. Where was your vitriol when Louis Farrakhan equated Jews to termites? Help stop the hate by stopping your own hate. He won.
2018-10-29 11:27:56 -0400
You haters in no way represent Jewish folks. You are reminiscent of the jews who reversed their circumcision to join the Greeks in the time of the Maccabees. May Hashem visit your iniquities on your heads 7×7 times!
2018-10-29 11:24:41 -0400
Thank you for your message to the President. I fully agree and support you. This rhetoric has to stop and it starts at the top! For him not to recognize that is a truly sad thing for the U.S. By standing up to his bullying, you are doing more for the country and he can ever try and do.
My condolences to all the people of the Tree of Life synagogue.

You’re nothing but another hate group that divides. Don’t call yourself a religion then help to murder our babies.
2018-10-29 11:21:54 -0400
You are the most pitiful ungrateful unGodly people I know. If you don’t like my President go back to your Homeland and face destruction there. I hope you lose enough to realize how arrogant and entitled you’ve become. I still support President Trump in sending aid to Israel. Damn you and your evil finders and backers. God sees all!!! Without bias and blame. I would rather face God in Trumps shoes than yours. He’s trying to run my country. If you don’t like it move to Iran or Venezuela or Israel. See who funds and backs you there.

I am disappointed that representatives of your organization would themselves engage in divisive rhetoric by stating that President Trump is “not welcome in Pittsburgh”. That is in itself hateful. President Trump does not engage in “assault on immigrants and refugees”. He attempts to follow and enforce U.S. laws, for the benefit of all citizens. What is it that leftist politician Rahm Emanuel said about difficult national moments….“never let a good crisis go to waste”. You are marching to that drummer. You have shown your true colors as just another divisive leftist group.
2018-10-29 10:58:20 -0400
calling Trump a white nationalist is a stretch. Some of us know the history of the Jews. You favorite word for non Jews “goy”. Jews have gotten rich as bankers who took advantage of the ignorance of the “goy” . Maybe this is one of the reasons many in the world came to dislike Jews. Progressives! How about Communist…the Jews were a big part of trying to push this country toward Communism in the 1950’s. American Jews were executed for being Russian spies.
People should study the history of the Jews and they may come to really understand the truth and not the fake picture you try to present to the world.

Its offensive to me that in this time of mourning, you rush to politicize our Pittsburgh tragedy with your anti-trump statements
2018-10-29 10:48:49 -0400
In paragraph three on your webpage you mentioned you wanted to be inclusive for all. If that is the case then how come you would put an ultimatum to President Trump that he is not welcome until he denounces all white nationalists? I would think you would want to at least have a conversation with him about your beliefs. You are shutting down any conversation when you exclude him to your city. Maybe you might want to rethink your ultimatum? Or maybe, you don’t truly believe “inclusive for all.” Just those who agree with you?

I honestly do not understand your letter to the president. This man takes so much criticism for supporting Israel and the Jewish people and you Condemn him because he does not speak like a polished politician, and you encouraged Obama who hated the Jewish community and Israel. Perhaps you should stop reading what the media (who will say anything bad about him – even make stuff up) and judge for yourself what kind of a person he is. God did not give you the right to judge anyone. It is written in His book.
2018-10-29 10:21:42 -0400
What you are doing to politicize this tragedy is disgusting!!! Blaming the president for a crazy person who hates him by the way is such a gross example of political opportunism. You should all be ashamed of yourselves.
2018-10-29 10:14:56 -0400
Trump was not responsible for what happened-but you stupid fucks insist he was. Fuck you all and Trump is welcome !
2018-10-29 10:03:07 -0400
I condemn your letter to the President of the United States of America.
You have no concept of the heart and soul of this country
Thank God Trump won.

I want to thank you for the open letter releasd by the Pittsburgh affiliate of Bend the Arc. I hope you find a way to get it into the news cycle and keep it there for the coming 8 days.

I would like to find out more about this organization. Please feel free to give me a call.
2018-10-29 09:34:34 -0400
You are wrong to put the blame of the attack on President Trump. You are going against your mission statement 100% and should be ashamed of yourselves.
You make me glass. I’m not one of you.
2018-10-29 09:29:26 -0400
Go fuck yourselves! We stand with Trump. Your groups policies will destroy America.

Dear members of Pittsburgh Bend the Arc,
First of all I send you heartfelt condolences on the horrible loss of dear friends and family members. Your grief cannot be measured.
Grief can cause you to do strange things like sending a letter to president Trump telling him he is not welcome in Pittsburgh.
President Trump is one of Israel’s greatest friends.
He moved the US embassy to Jerusalem.
He prayed at the Western wall.
He is the only US President to hold the palestinians accountable for their acts of terror.
Bill Clinton did not do that nor did Barak Obama.
Hillary Clinton most certainly would not have either.
Besides, who elected you to speak on behave of all of Pittsburgh.
Quite frankly how dare you presume to do that?
As I have written, grief can sometimes cause to you to do strange things like lash out at a friend like President Trump.
Please reconsider your letter.
May G-d bless you in your grief. You are and will be in our prayers.

Your letter to President Trump was disgusting. I’m surprised your mood is so hateful at this time.

I do not like your stance you took on not allowing President to pay respects to the shooting victims family. The kind of hate you are spewing is uncalled for. Remember you are supposed to be Christ followers and you damn sure are not acting like it. You need to ask God for forgiveness for your hateful liberal attitudes. I am sorry for the people you lost. Don’t be part of the problem in the division that is happening in America. Christ is coming, you need to be ready!

I am saddened by the tragic loss of life at the Tree of Life Synagogue.
I agree with your organization’s stand against President Trump’s hate speech.
Trump’s nationwide television ad that aired two days before the 2016 election pointed out three prominent Americans in the financial world whose only relationship was that they were Jewish, in order to bolster the conspiracy theory that Jews run the world and profit at the expense of everybody else.
This type of rhetoric plays into the workings of the minds of people who are already unhinged.
While President Trump certainly did not tell anybody to commit a violent act, his hostility toward Jews and other minority groups in America provides strong validation to unstable people.
In the upcoming election, I hope hate will be defeated at the ballot box.
There are plenty of hate-filled people running for office, including a Nazi in Illinois.
My prayers are with the members of the Tree of Life Synagogue and the Squirrel Hill community.
