New head of Reform movement favors BDS against Judea and Samaria

The current issue of the New York Jewish Week includes an interview with the new leader of the Reform movement, Rabbi Rick Jacobs. Among the many issues that ought to bother you is his support for the boycott, divest, sanction (BDS) movement, at least where the Jewish cities and towns of Judea and Samaria (Hat Tip: NY Nana).
On the issue of the BDS (Boycott, Divestment, Sanctions) movement, he said he strongly opposed global BDS, which seeks to eliminate the Zionist state, but drew a distinction between such efforts and those who boycott products made in Jewish communities in the West Bank.

He said the Reform movement has not taken a position yet on the boycott of West Bank settlements but that “we do take positions on the hardest issues.”
So we can look for the Reform movement to become a boycotter of Judea and Samaria? What's wrong with that? Plenty. Israel's legitimacy is indivisible.

I put him in the same urinal as Neturei Karta.

Yes, Schmuck Jacobs, give them a state!

It would seem that "Shfoch chamatcha el hagoyim" would applied to Jacobs and his ilk. "Vetashmidem mitachat shmei Hashem."

We'll never hear Rabbi Jacobs call for BDS against China, repressive Arab regimes and other Third World autocracies.

It would not be politically correct.

What could go wrong indeed

Carl, thanks for the hat tip. I was furious when I read the article. It seems that the Conservative movement is now a part of the Reform movement, and this is the last thing American Jewry needs. Shy Guy has it right. I was brought up in Reform Jewry at Ohabei Shalom, in Brookline, but it was a very different world all those years ago.

The 'Conservative' group we belonged to now leans so far left that my husband now goes to the local Chabad, where he found a good-sized number of those who also left the same conservative group as it changed so much that it is intolerable. There are no other Schuls within the area that would not require driving. The Jewish community is indeed dwindling here. American Jewry is on a slippery slope, and we need some real leaders now...and any alleged Rabbi who thinks J Street is worthwhile is not what we need.

How many more of these filthy kapos are there? It is like a disease, all this self-loathing. This must be the reason so many Jews were murdered in the Holocaust, because these kapos were spreading their lies that Hitler was wonderful and would never REALLY hurt Jews. I hope this creep rots in hell.
