In his column on whether the prayer for the government should be revised considering the Trump election victory, Gary Rosenblatt gives attention to the opinions of an obscure left-wing ad hoc group (“Pray For The President? A Divine Dilemma,” Jan. 13). Your readers have probably never heard of it and its membership must be minuscule [The group is Refuse Facism, which recently ran a full-page ad in The New York Times].
What about the recent Jerusalem Post poll which showed that 69 percent of Israelis view Obama as pro-Palestinian and 79 percent expect a Trump administration to be more pro-Israel? That’s a lot more representative of how committed Jews feel.
Rosenblatt’s column reads like it was written by the head of an abortion rights group, not the editor of a Jewish newspaper.
