JEWISH ORGANIZATIONS SPEAK OUT AGAINST ARIZONA LAW

Rate this Entry

Even though America's Jewish community includes virtually known of the folks being targeted by the anti-immigrant law in Arizona, members of the community get nervous when they see individuals in another minority group being targeted unjustly. Laws that demand that people show their papers make Jews especially concerned since in generations past (think Nazi Germany) in other countries, similar laws were part of campaigns of persecution.

The first group to weigh in, appropriately, was the state's Reform Rabbis. It's rather refreshing that this is the case because 47 years ago when Northern rabbis went down to Birmingham, Alabama to support Martin Luther King and his fellow segregation protesters, they were asked to go home by their counterparts in Alabama. 

Other groups speaking out against the new law are the Hebrew Immigrant Aid Society and the Simon Weisenthal Center as well as the Jewish Center for Public Affairs and the American Jewish Committee

Hopefully, we'll see every major religious community publicly opposing.

    The jewish community knows first hand what this sorts of laws lead to down the road. The problem is that we are asking for people to feel sympathy for undocumented immigrants as if they were not human beings and not sure if americans will do that, these immigrants are damaged goods in the eyes of the public and may cloud the human side of the whole thing....

    The law sounds like a bad idea. Securing the border sounds like a better idea.
