What About Zimmerman?

It is amazing that Gary Rosenblatt, in his column (“A Scholar’s Education,” Sept. 29) does not report about David Myers’ defense of Simone Zimmerman.

Simone Zimmerman — the founder of the group If Not Now — was fired by Bernie Sanders’ presidential campaign for posting an expletive-filled and offensive rant that was critical of the Israeli government. Zimmerman wrote on Facebook, “Bibi Netanyahu is an arrogant, deceptive, cynical, manipulative a__hole. F_ you, Bibi, for daring to insist that you legitimately represent even a fraction of the Jews in this world.”

Myers responded with an impassioned defense of Ms. Zimmerman, detailing her as “the future of American Jewry,” a “beneficiary of the best Jewish education our community offers” and someone with a “deep and abiding connection to Judaism and Israel.”

This alone should be enough reason for the Center for Jewish History to correct their error and dump this guy.
