Cory Booker Deserves Our Gratitude

The editorial in the JLNJ asks whether Senator Cory Booker is still with us, (“Talk to Us Senator Booker. Talk to Us Now!” August 9, 2018) the pro-Israel Orthodox Jewish Community. As pointed out in an article in the Jewish Standard that same week, the episode in question was the result of a photo-op gone bad. Senator Booker was unaware of the agenda that was being thrust on him when he was asked to take pictures with these particular anti-Israel individuals. He has not wavered in his support of the Jewish State, and he still deserves our gratitude. A better question to ask is are we still with Senator Booker? Given that so many of the Orthodox population has unabashedly embraced the outright racist who is our president, the answer to that question is unlikely to be as innocent.
