Even Anti-Trump Jewish Groups Cheer Syria Strike

Mainstream Jewish groups are getting behind President Donald Trump’s strike on a Syrian airbase, launched from a warship late Thursday night.

In a tweet Friday morning, the American Jewish Committee, a leading U.S. Jewish organization, openly backed the attack.

”.@POTUS did the right thing,” the AJC wrote.

The group joined the Anti-Defamation League, which also expressed support in a series of tweets.

AJC has been critical of the Trump administration. In January, the group issued an unusually harsh condemnation of Trump’s refugee ban.
