Why do Jews single out Glenn Beck over his Holocaust rhetoric?
Beck’s ongoing invocation of the Holocaust and Nazis to demonize his opponents, has been seen before in national broadcasts.
Recently 400 rabbis signed a letter to Rupert Murdoch, CEO of News Corporation, asking him to sanction Fox News Channel’s most popular host, Glenn Beck. Their concern: Beck’s ongoing invocation of the Holocaust and Nazis to demonize his opponents, as well as his use of traditionally anti-Semitic language to attack Jewish philanthropist George Soros. Jewish Funds for Justice published this letter as an advertisement in the Forward and in The Wall Street Journal.
The ads have sparked heated debate in newspapers, on blogs and on social-networking sites. We were grateful for the outpouring of supportive messages we received. But we are not unaware of the critiques, which have also been plentiful and impassioned.
