'Rabbis For Obama' Boycott Israel And Cozy Up To AhmadinejadI still don't understand why IsraelNN.com can't put "rabbis" in quotation marks. I've mentioned this to them many times. They claim it's for clarity's sake. So many other self-respecting journalists use this strategy. Why can't they? Why can't The Jewish Press?
"Rabbis for Obama" includes many anti-Israel figures who support the Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions movement against the Jewish state.

U.S. President Barack Obama U.S. President Barack Obama Israel news photo: Flash 90 President Obama’s re-election campaign announced last week the launch of “Rabbis for Obama,” an initiative aimed at rallying Jewish support for the president in the upcoming elections.
What has recently come to light, however, is that the list of over 600 rabbis, many of whom are Reform, Conservative and female and would thus not be considered as such by the Orthodox community, also includes many unabashedly anti-Israel figures, who align themselves with the Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions (BDS) movement against the Jewish state. (cont.)
The Jerusalem Post staff seems to like the idea of Jews doing what they want. This would explain the legitimacy it attempts to grant to anyone calling him(or her)self a "rabbi," who supports this "do what we want" attitude. The fact that they delude themselves into thinking that what they want IS what God wants, only provides additional support for the notion that they no nothing of Torah nor Jewish Law, or that the two are even remotely related.
As to the content of the article?
The content is just so absurd on one level, and on another level it is so very sad how lost the Jews are follow these charlatans.
It is questionable whether these self-hating jokers even Jewish, you know with all the sham conversions taking place for the last several generations.
Whether wannabe epikoursim or just tinoqoth shenishba, I have serious doubts whether any them could be counted in a minyan (minimum prayer group number).
...even the men.

I say "wannabe," because none of them have the hakhmah of Torah that the epikoursim did 1,000 to 1,700 years ago.
And what about those identifying themselves as "Orthodox?"
Hmm... For some reason the word "kefirah"* pops into head. But I can't imagine why....
What's that?! Did someone in the audience just yell the word "mahti?"**

What else is there to say?
They spit in the face of HaShem, who handed some of our land back to His People in תש"ח/1948, then returned even more of our lands back to us in , when we were threatened with annihilation by the Yishma'elite enemy, the same enemy they defend over their own brothers and sisters! But, like I said, there is a question as to whether they really are our brethren, either on a Jewish legal level, or certainly on a spiritual level.
Not only do these people know nothing of Torah, having completely confused it with Western, assimilationist, galuth (exiles) values and sensibilites. But, they also know nothing of peace.
Peace, simply put, is when are Jews are living where they should be, in Eretz Yisrael, behaving as they should be, keeping Torah and misswoth, with those non-Jews who are not permitted to live here, not living here!
These people should be called "Rabbis For Piece." Better yet, "Pretend Rabbis Enabling Co-Dependent Assimilated Jews To Confuse Jewish Values with Non-Jewish Values, in order to Give Away their Land."
Oh, wait a minute!
We weren't talking about "Rabbis For Peace?" We weren't talking about "Rabbis For Human (except for Torah observant Jewish) Rights?"
We were actually talking about "Rabbis For Obama," were we?
Honestly, do such name changes and re-inventions actually register anything significant in your brains?
These supporters of "piece," "Arab rights," and "Hussein Obama" will either receive their just punishment in the World To Come, or not, seeing as they hardly know better, and thus may not be culpable for their crimes.
Yet, in the meantime, it is upon us not to stand idly by, and allow them to continue on their path of destruction, destruction of the Land of the Israel, destruction of the People of Israel, and the destruction of the Torah of Israel!

**Mahti (מחטיא) = one who leads others to sin.
