“What we are seeing in Israel today is McCarthyism, with a Hebrew accent.” This comment came not from the mouth of an Iranian fanatic but from the CEO of the New Israel Fund, Daniel Sokatch. (“The ‘Smear’ With The Hebrew Accent,” Opinion, April 8).
Yes, we have serious policy disagreements but civility is today’s watchword in the Jewish world. So, Daniel, please define and discuss our differences with respect — not mirror the vicious attacks of the BDS anti-Semites and the terrorists of Hamas. I sincerely hope that our community leaders will show the courage to honor their own admirable standards and speak out against this incendiary breach of civility, even though it is coming from an organization with strong establishment connections.
