    Sometimes they act like a social club where you can get together with your friends. The article in the JPost that interested me was the one that criticized the American Jewish Congress, American Jewish Committee and Bnai Brith for not doing enough to save the Jews of Europe from Hitler (they were not assertive enough). The Bnai Brith was not organized as a group to fight for human rights, etc.. I think many Jews are aggravated with Abe Foxman for taking Turkish money to promote Armenian genocide denial. They did not feel it was appropriate for him to speak for all the Jews or for a Jewish group to promote holocaust or genocide denial. The saga goes on; I read about Foxman in Hurriyet just yesterday. I don't know where this is going to end. A lot of people don't feel he should be the spokesman for this issue. Why was he chosen? Why did he accept? Also, there are articles in the JPost criticizing all these groups and leaders.

    from the article: Why do Israelis dislike Barack Obama?
