In his unswerving drive for popularity in the mainstream of conventional Jewish opinion, The Kvetcher has turned his attention to the claims being made by the Progress By Pesach campaign.

He has a caveat:

Progress By Pesach…seeks an end to enforcement of our immigration laws and amnesty for its violators. I don’t personally understand how Jews should have a right to dictate immigration policy unilaterally — despite quote after quote recited to me about The Stranger…
He is unimpressed by the quantity claimed:
...let’s see. There are millions of American Jews…and Perfidy has collected a total of…1,600 signatures:
And was possibly over-zealous – he actually looked at the lists:

Looking at these signatures,
I found a couple of strange things. I sure hope Obama looks at this list carefully, because some of these people voted, well…twice.

Since many of these are in order, it seems there may have been a computer glitch. I guess HIAS didn’t have time to fix it yet. I’m sure they will. Especially when the signers didn’t even remember to put in their names.

The Kvetcher goes on to note that some of the signers appear to be Hispanic and Asian - although Progress By Pesach is a specifically Jewish campaign - and some live in other countries, although the issue is after all American.

He concludes

Progress By Pesach notes,

�1600 + signatures collected, we still need 8,400 more to reach our goal of 10,000�

Oh, I’m guessing they’ll get those, come hell or high water. But they may not be Jews, they may not be Americans, they may not be unique signatures, and they may not even have signed any name at all.

It doesn’t matter. They will continue to claim to speak for all of us.

VDARE.com comment: Progress By Pesach is a dangerous mistake. Does it have to be fraudulent too?
