The Times of Israel has a round-up of what organizations are saying in response to Donald Trump’s call to ban all Muslim immigration to America and B'nai B'rith International makes an appearance on the list: “Singling out an entire religious community for diminished rights amounts to bigotry, and it should not be accepted.” Click here to read the article on TimesofIsrael.com
Donald Trump’s call last week to bar all Muslims from entering the United States “until our country’s representatives can figure out what is going on” has set off a deluge of criticism in America and around the world, from US House Speaker Paul Ryan to Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu.
