The total collapse of Jewish and Israeli PR – opinion – The Jerusalem Post

Posted By on May 20, 2021

From the beginning of my rabbinic career, I focused mightily on public relations and disseminating the Jewish message to the world. I was accused of being publicity-hungry and of shallowness. But I knew that the one area where we Jews have so significantly failed was in public relations. And this has been true throughout the centuries.Only one nation has ever been accused of murdering God: The Jews. And our inability to properly respond to so heinous a charge how can anyone murder an infinitely power being brought centuries of devastation to our people. Then they accused us of being vampires, of murdering Christian children to suck out their blood. No other nation has faced a similar blood libel, which led to the spilling of countless quantities of Jewish blood.Now Israel is fighting a genocidal enemy in Hamas, a bloodthirsty death cult with a genocidal charter calling for the extermination of Jews wherever they may be found, including in the United States, Europe and Australia.Hamas aids and abets honor killings of Palestinian women whose only crime is to have a boyfriend. They slaughter LGBT Palestinians. They are ruthless and brutal to the wider Palestinian population, robbing them of the international funds sent to give them a better life and using those funds instead to fire rockets at Jews, to murder as many of them as they can.You would think that the choice here between good and evil would be stark and direct and that the world would stand with Israel. But precisely the opposite has occurred, as Israel is now being portrayed as trying to erase the Palestinian people.TAKE THE example of Mohamed Hadid, the multi-millionaire father of supermodels Bella and Gigi Hadid, all of whom are vilifying Israel with gusto to their tens of millions of followers on Instagram. Last week he actually wrote, No one should be allowed to erase a race you cant close your eyes the Pope did in WW1 and WW!! And the rest of the world stood by silently.This is the ultimate blood libel, falsely accusing Israel, the only free society in the Middle East, of genocide. Hadid shockingly compares the Holocaust of six million Jews to Israel fighting back against the Hamas rockets intent on murdering children. It takes an incredible audacity to accuse the Jews of perpetrating a Holocaust of the Palestinians. This antisemitic blood libel about the Jewish people should be rejected by all people who value truth and human rights.
