Burza nad USraelem…

Prezydent Trump wskazał Amy Coney Barrett ,katoliczkę, matkę siedmiorga dzieci (w tym dwoje adoptowanych), jako kandydatkę do Sądu Najwyższego w miejsce zmarłej Ruth Bader Ginsburg.
Decyzja ta wywołała oburzenie środowisk żydowskich ponieważ:

Jewish progressives and Democrats have come out against the nomination of Amy Coney Barrett to the US Supreme Court, arguing that nominating the Catholic mother of seven goes against everything that her predecessor, Jewish justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, stood for.

Amy Coney Barrett stands in opposition to everything the late Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg fought for throughout her career and threatens to reverse decades of progress with regard to access to affordable healthcare, equality, separation of church and state, and reproductive rights,
Claiming that Barrett’s views are „far outside” mainstream public opinion and the „overwhelming majority of Jewish Americans,” Soifer pointed out that just over four in five Jewish voters view the Supreme Court as one of the key matters in deciding their vote.
„We know that the Supreme Court influenced the Jewish vote in 2018 when 79% of Jewish voters supported Democrats, and it will again in 2020, to the detriment of Donald Trump,” Soifer said.
The National Council of Jewish Women’s (NCJW) CEO Sheila Katz said that Barrett failed to meet the criteria of being fair, independent and qualified with a commitment to constitutional rights for everyone.
“Due to her past statements and decisions related to abortion, health care, immigration, gun violence prevention and racial justice, NCJW strongly opposes Amy Coney Barrett as a nominee to the highest court in the nation,” Katz said.
