Where does the threat come from?

In his last column, “The threat from the Christian Right” (July 20), Rabbi Engelmayer seems to have his directions wrong. The threat to Israel and Jews is not from the right but the left. The Christian left – the Presbyterian Church (USA) voted for Boycott, Divestment, and Sanctions against Israel. They want to bring financial ruin to Israel. They don’t believe in a Zionist state. The Christian right is the best friend Israel has (tourism, financial aid, Soviet Jewry, etc. ) To bring in concern about U.S. immigration policy obscures the church’s animosity toward Israel. The immigration policy has many divergent views amongst all groups, but to demonize and weaken Israel is a danger to the Middle East, the Western world, and world Jewry. Where are your priorities, Rabbi Engelmayer?
