JewsChooseTrump.org Enthusiastically Supports Bannon Appointment
and Blasts Anti-Semitic Claims Against Him
Nov. 15, 2016 - FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
JewsChooseTrump.org is appalled by the hysteria being whipped up by opponents of president-elect Donald Trump who are lobbing unsubstantiated and untrue charges at a Trump aide, claiming he is anti-Semitic.
"Steve Bannon has been described repeatedly by those who know him well as an ardent Zionist and one who is overly-sensitive to anti-Semitic claims by others," said Lori Lowenthal Marcus, co-chair of JewsChooseTrump.org. "JewsChooseTrump.org is thrilled to have an ardent supporter of a strong Israel and a strong America in the White House."
Steven K. Bannon, former editor-in-chief of Breitbart News and recently appointed Chief Strategist to Trump, has been smeared by charges of being both anti-Israel and anti-Semitic. At least one organization is using its title and history as a mantle of piety, courageously calling out anti-Semitism as a cover for engaging instead in a partisan political attack.
A prime example of this is the tweet issued by the Anti-Defamation League's executive director, Jonathan Greenblatt, immediately after Bannon's appointment was made. Greenblatt condemned Bannon as promoting "white nationalists" and "unabashed anti-Semites."
"The Anti-Defamation League's attack on Bannon is ludicrous," said Richard Allen, co-chair of JewsChooseTrump.org. "The ADL and its CEO Jonathan Greenblatt have brought partisan politics out of the secret passages and in through the front door."
"Jews who love Israel and who want an organized defender of the Jewish people and the Jewish State now know, to a certainty, that the ADL is not that defender," Marcus added. "Those who continue to financially support the ADL are on notice that their money is being used to support the Democratic party, not Jews or the Jewish State."
"JewsChooseTrump.org is enthusiastic about the Bannon appointment because he is a strong fighter for the American people. His appointment signals that political correctness will not be allowed to silence truth. Fighting against Islamic terrorism, opposing the disastrous Iran deal and honoring our military are back at this White House," explained Carol Greenwald, co-chair of JewsChooseTrump.org.
JewsChooseTrump.org is confident that the man chosen by president-elect Trump to be his chief strategist will be a great friend of Israel in the White House, and we will be vigilant on our watch to ensure that is the case.
JewsChooseTrump.org is a national network comprised of many thousands who chose Trump because of his strong positions on national security and foreign policy, including opposition to the Iran Deal and an ironclad commitment to the security and sovereignty of Israel.
Other pro-Jewish organizations and individuals have been quick to support Bannon and pushback against the ADL's calumny. The Zionist Organization of America immediately condemned the attack on Bannon, as did writers such as David Goldman and Melanie Phillips.
