Sam Francis should read his own links. For example the article he quoted, in Mass Immigration Eats Through The Melting Pot, from the Forward:
From this article, Francis quotes Hebrew Immigrant Aid Society CEO Leonard Glickman as saying "The more diverse American society is the safer [Jews] are."
What Francis fails to mention is that the whole thrust of the Forward article is that Glickman's view is no longer typical of Jewish opinion. Just look at the title! And here is the first sentence:
"One year after the September 11 terrorist attacks, a fierce debate has broken out within some central bodies in the Jewish organizational world over the community's traditional support for open immigration."
Sam Francis wants to argue that the Jewish community is still today playing a crucial role in pushing for mass immigration. In support for that position he quotes an article that states exactly the opposite. No wonder he has asked me to stop commenting on his articles, I must be a real pain in the neck from his perspective!
Leonard Glickman is an old fellow and a voice from the past. His view that immigration is "good for the Jews" never made any sense even in the old days and today it is absolutely insane.
As for the "Anglo-Protestant core" I am all in favor of it. American Jews in recent times have prospered enormously under the core's benevolence and most of us know it. On a personal note, I might mention that half my family is Anglo-Protestant at this point and I am hardly alone in this respect.
It is time to abandon the stereotype.
