Report: The National Council of Young Israel (NCYI) has condemned a U.S. State Department report that criticizes Israel for alleged religious discrimination against non-Jews and non-Orthodox Jews.
Let's be real. The nearly bankrupt National Council of Young Israel does not have the resources to compete with the U.S State Department. NCYI employs a handful of people. The state department employs thousands. Their report is based on copious research, conducted by experts who reviewed documents, and interviewed people. The NCYI response, on the other hand, is likely based on hearsay, wishful thinking, and amateur observations made by the NCYI president from a Jerusalem hotel window.
It also seems to me the NCYI should get its own house in order before it condemns the state department. Given how they are alleged to bully, bleed and mistreat their branches -- especially those with female leadership -- I would suggest that they have some work to do before posing as champions of non-discrimination.
