One of the challenges with an overly saturated Jewish Communal Network is that messaging gets muddy.
Yes, we are ALL on the same page, but we do not have a single organizational quarterback sharing one message or one response to this moment.
Allow me to suggest three statements that EVERY Jewish organization should subscribe to, and every supporter should share:
• There is no equivocation or justification that can excuse the brutality and heinous murder of innocent civilians committed by Hamas.
• Israel has every right – indeed an obligation – to defend itself, its citizens and to ensure that this terror can never happen to its country again.
• Hamas is responsible for the death and suffering of innocent civilians in Gaza. The Jewish people do not celebrate the plight of Gazans subject to the chokehold and terror of Hamas. The civilized world must hold Hamas responsible for this sad reality.
Let us ALL share this with print, social and broadcast media and water cooler pundits.
