…is right here:
As yourself this question. How is it that a Jewish woman speaking about Zionism and the threats against Jews is not only unacceptable to the Jewish Federation of LA but that it didn’t become unacceptable to them until the day before the event. As Breitbart put it:
On Sunday morning, the very morning of the event, after promising ZOA the use of a meeting room for the purpose of Pamela Geller’s presentation – after permitting ZOA to sell tickets – The Jewish Federation of Los Angeles retracted permission for the use of the room.
Pam put it best in her introduction:
“Imagine, that it’s easier to throw a Jew under the bus than to stand up against a group that is the US affiliate of Hamas!”
To the LA Jewish Federation who caved undetermined “security concerns”, to say it a disgrace is self-evident, to say it is UuAmerican is superfluous let me tell you what this really is:
Let me as a Catholic who isn’t the slighted bit Jewish, whose wife is not the slightest bit Jewish, whose Children are Roman Catholic, whose parents, grandparents, great-grandparents as far back as I can go are Roman Catholic.
You are not going to make your enemies love you by going after your friends, you are just going to make yourself weaker while they become stronger.
C.S. Forester described this in a different setting:
You know his methods, Your Excellency. A demand for concessions, and when the concessions are granted then new demands, each one more weakening than the one before , until the object of his attentions is either took weak to oppose him further or is at least so weakened as to make armed resistance fatal.
Commodore Hornblower 1945 p167
Courage is the first virtue, without courage no other virtue can exist. Think about this, because the time will come when it is too late and the only person you will be able to blame is the guy in the mirror.
Let me say this, Pam Geller welcome on my show any time and any day that she is willing to come on.
Update: I wonder what the La Jewish federation says about this.
