Israel Politicians Shouldn't Be Invited to Address UJA Meetings

By Leonard Fein

Moment Magazine, June 1988

It is inappropriate that the United Jewish Appeal, an organization which should be apolitical, invited an Israeli politician to speak. Fein argues that American Jews should not be represented as "unreservedly" loyal to the Israeli government and critiques Israeli politicians who make statements leading to such representation. The important factor to note, he argues, is that American Jews are pro-Israel, not necessarily pro-Labor or pro-Likud.
