Just the latest example of the moral/political bankruptcy of US liberals!

Not only was US president Franklin Roosevelt perfunctory about rescuing
Jews from the Nazis, but he obstructed rescue opportunities that would have
cost him little or nothing, according to Holocaust historian Rafael Medoff.

FDR’s role in preventing the rescue of European Jewry is detailed in a new
book called, “The Jews Should Keep Quiet
<https://www.amazon.com/Jews-Should-Keep-Quiet-Roosevelt/dp/0827614705>:
Franklin D. Roosevelt, Rabbi Stephen S. Wise, and the Holocaust.”

Published in September through The Jewish Publication Society
<https://jps.org/books/the-jews-should-keep-quiet/>, Medoff’s book includes
new archival materials about the relationship between Roosevelt and Rabbi
Stephen Wise, who the author sees as a sycophantic Jewish leader used by
Roosevelt to “keep the Jews quiet.”

According to Medoff, Roosevelt’s policies toward European Jews were
motivated by sentiments similar to those that spurred him to intern 120,000
Japanese Americans in detention camps as potential spies.
