More incredible work from the most pro-Jewish POTUS ever. How can any Jewish American cast a vote against this man? It’s nuts.

Trump Administration to declare Amnesty, NGOs antisemitic – report

‘Amnesty International is deeply committed to fighting antisemitism and all forms of hate worldwide,’ NGO responds.

By Jerusalem Post, October 22, 2020

US President Donald Trump’s administration is set to declare major international human rights nongovernmental organizations Amnesty International, Human Rights Watch and Oxfam as antisemitic in a soon-to-be released State Department declaration, voicing the opinion governments should not support them any longer.
T’ruah, a rabbinic human rights organization that represents more than 2,000 rabbis, responded to the allegation, noting “any US government declaration that these groups are antisemitic for criticizing the Israeli government is ridiculous, and contributes to the silencing of Israel’s human rights defenders.”
Rabbi Jill Jacobs, executive director of T’ruah, said on Wednesday that “the Trump administration’s smear of these three human rights organizations is yet one more example of this administration’s disregard for democracy and human rights at home and abroad.”
“In casting aspersion on longtime respected human rights organizations, the Trump administration joins an ignoble list of autocratic governments that have discredited, smeared and even banned their own internal human rights organizations,” she said.
“Actions such as these damage US democracy by threatening the transparency necessary to protect human rights. Human rights and civil society groups play a prophetic role, even if their words may not be ones governments want to hear,” “Actions such as these damage US democracy by threatening the transparency necessary to protect human rights. Human rights and civil society groups play a prophetic role, even if their words may not be ones governments want to hear,”
“Israel is a state bound by international human rights law, like all other members of the United Nations, and like other countries can be criticized when it fails to live up to these commitments,” she said.
“By falsely smearing human rights organizations as antisemitic, the Trump administration only makes it harder to counter actual acts of antisemitism when they happen, while simultaneously harming these organizations’ effectiveness in reporting on all countries’ human rights abuses – including those of the United States.”
ACCORDING TO the declaration is expected to take the form of a report from the office of Elan Carr, US special envoy to monitor and combat antisemitism. The report would declare it is US policy not to support such groups, including financially, and urge other governments to cease their support.
