The Naftali Botwin Brigade of Jewish volunteers, during the 1937 Civil War.

Botwin Company published its own Yiddish-language newspaper, called Botwin (which came out seven times), and had a flag that bore the motto “For your freedom and ours,” printed in Yiddish and Polish on one side, and in Spanish on the reverse. Its anthem, also in Yiddish, was written by the fighter Olek Nuss, and ended with the following lines:

“And in that future time without war,
Our efforts will be remembered,
As the Jewish Botwin soldiers,
The fascist plague, they chased away!
No pasaran!”

Thank you Chief Rabbi. Now I know. Judaism is to blame for the Palestinian Nakba.

When it comes to defining Zionism, you have brought crystal clarity.

You serve as Chairman and Executive Vice-Chairman of the Conference of Presidents of Major American Jewish Organizations, which calls itself the “voice of organized American Jewry.” According to your website, you’ve issued 26 press releases since Donald Trump became the de facto Republican presidential nominee in early May. Not a single one mentions him.
