JNS.org — A Jewish group supporting Donald Trump’s campaign for the US presidency defended the Republican candidate’s praise for Israel’s use of profiling to prevent terrorist attacks.

“Rather than being concerned with political correctness, our government needs to be concerned number one with our safety,” said Richard Allen, the New York director of Jews Choose Trump.

The group was referring to a Fox News interview on September 19 in which Trump said, “As you know in Israel they profile, they’ve done an unbelievable job — as good as you can do. They see somebody who’s suspicious, they profile, they will take that person and they’ll check him out.”

Allen welcomed Trump’s statement, saying, “As Jews, we are prime targets of radical Islamic terrorism around the globe, and we need extreme vetting to prevent terrorist attacks within and abroad.” Allen added that he views Donald Trump as “the only candidate in this race who will keep us and the entire nation safe and root out terrorism.”

Carol Greenwald, chairman of Jews Choose Trump, founded the group with Allen in order to counter accusations that Trump was antisemitic and offer a voice to those in the Jewish community who support him.

    “As Jews, we are prime targets of radical Islamic terrorism around the globe, and we need extreme vetting to prevent terrorist attacks within and abroad.” Let’s try that again, in another way: “As white people, we are prime targets of black violence and need to protect ourselves to prevent violence against us.” Suddenly, the same Jewish people would get up on their multicultural bandwagon and call white people racist for doing what Jewish people take for granted they alone have a right to do in this world: protect their own kind.
