Jewish Endorser Of Chaplains For US Military Calls For Action After Chaplain Is Targeted For Religious Beliefs

rabbi todd NAVY_SEAL_VISITEXCLUSIVE: [LETTER] Rabbi Fishel Todd of Lakewood, who serves as the Jewish Endorser of Chaplains to the US Military, and Executive Director of Pirchei Shoshanim revealed to TLS action he is taking regarding  the ‘blatant anti-Semitic conduct of a senior member of the NY National Guard’.

At the center of the complaint, is the alleged blatant misconduct and discrimination against Chaplain Raziel Amar, who Todd says is being targeted for his religious beliefs.

In a letter penned to NY’s Governor Cuomo, Todd calls on the NY Governor to personally look into this serious matter, and not simply forward the letter to the National Guard ‘for a possible cover-up’.

“Perhaps the time has come for new leadership in the New York National Guard”, Todd signs off the letter.

  1. Maybe I read it wrong but it sounds like a conflict of personality between the two, not religious discrimination. People get transfered and passed over for promotions all the time in the military over personality conflicts, not that this is right either.

  2. For a bit of perspective, a quote by Henry Kissinger:

    “The illegal we do immediately. The unconstitutional takes a bit longer.”

  3. I served with the US Air Force for over 20 years. For anyone that suggest that Discrimination does not exist in the military is doing one of two things. 1. Lying to themselves or 2. Not aware of the realities of life. Both of these scenarios are not good. Discrimination if it is real or perceived is not what is supposed to happen in the Military but the reality is that it happens every day. If the Chaplin thinks that there is something wrong, then there should be everything done to preserve his career and remove him from that situation.

  4. I was in the National Guard, and I served as a civilian recruiter for the NG, and I can say from personal experience that there is Anti-Semitism in the National Guard, but it is only a few people here and there. However, I had a Master Sergeant say some very anti-semitic remarks about me which cost me my next job becuase it affected my security clearance, and she said lies about me, that had to be investigated further. I read the whole investigation and she is quoted as saying “I do not know why the National Guard would hire a Jew, especially to recuit people.” I was selected for the job, since they were trying to hire linguists for the global war on terrorism and I was a graudate of the Defense Language Institute in Arabic.

    So there is anit-semitism still in the military, my experience was with the California National Guard.

    However, in this case it is not clear because we are not able to see the conversations, transfers happen at the need of the military.

  5. I’m a victim. I’m a survivor. Anti-semitism thrives in the Chaplaincy, starting at the two-star level. I brought suit against them, through the EEOC, and won. The US Army Chaplain Center and School was found guilty of “willful and intentional religious discrimination” against this Jew. And it is not over.
