FLORIDA VOTERS: VOTE THIS JEW HATING JEW OUT OF OFFICE. When will the Jewish lay leadership stop acting like the damn Judenrat of Germany and start actively advocating and campaigning for great Americans - lovers of Israel, America and the those unafraid to confront our mortal enemies. American Jewish lay leadership seem to be escorting us onto the trains (excluding ZOA of course).
How fortunate for Florida that they could throw that bottom feeder Klein out and have an extraordinary thinking hero take over the helm of the 22nd district.
BTW, What Are You Doing Tuesday the 5th? Join us here. GO WEST!
Ron Klein forces ZOA member to resign...
Last Thursday (July 24th), the president of the Zionist Organization of America, one of America’s the most respected of Jewish-American organizations, called ZOA South Florida organization chairman Alan Bergstein and gave him an ultimatum: stop his volunteer work for West or resign from his ZOA post. According to the West campaign, “it was made clear to Bergstein that Ron Klein was necessary to pass congressional legislation important to ZOA and to Israel. ZOA has an obligation to its membership to ensure that their issues are considered, so the national office clearly felt it had no choice but to deliver the message to Mr. Bergstein.”
Think about it for a minute, experts: if Klein is sending a signal for someone to do give an ultimatum to a campaign volunteer for West, does it not follow that he is somewhat concerned about the Republican challenger?
In March, ZOA had arranged a joint appearance between Klein and West. Two days before the scheduled event, Klein said he was unable to attend and asked ZOA to cancel the event. The group refused, the event was held, Allen West did speak, and it was very well-attended.
And Bergstein? Upset that (in his words) “a Jewish congressman has to threaten Israel and world Jewry by whining over one person’s activities, Bergstein chose the better part of valor, resigned his position with ZOA, and will work hard on the West campaign.
I have passed the report of the ZOA and West on to others, including the Republican Jewish Coalition and Rep. Eric Cantor of Virginia, the lone Jewish Republican in the House. Their response will be interesting—as will those of the political “experts” the next time we review the races.
Allen West responds:
We believe that Mort Klein was put in an untenable position by Ron Klein or his supporters. Alan Bergstein was given the choice of resigning from either the ZOA or from his volunteer support for Allen West. We are not aware of any Ron Klein supporters who received a similar phone call.
Mr. Bergstein resigned under protest from the ZOA. To our knowledge, no mention was made of tax status concerns but even if the question had been raised, the remedy offered was an over-reaction.
Mr. Bergstein honored the group's rules when he set up the candidate forum that started this ball rolling. Allen West appreciated the hospitality extended to him by the local ZOA and also honored their rules in his comments to them.
This argument is not--and should not be--between Allen West and the ZOA. It is more properly directed at Ron Klein, without whose inappropriate pressure this would not have occurred.
