I profess to being shocked and extremely disappointed in not finding a single mention in your newspaper about the outrageous events happening lately on the Rutgers campus.

Rutgers faculty members are spewing vicious hatred against Jews and Israel, and its president, Robert Barchi, is defending them in the name of “free speech.” These are all people on the payroll of a state university supported by all of us with our New Jersey tax dollars.

Your newspaper covers world news, national news, Israel news and local and community news, but atrocious events happening in our own backyard are not mentioned! You should have front page headlines screaming gevalt! at this deplorable behavior. Instead there is silence, and this is unconscionable.

We Jews always pride ourselves as being ohr l’goyim, a light unto the nations, and are the first ones to jump in to help people in need. However, it also seems to be a national trait to remain silent in the face of grave peril to ourselves, and this costs us dearly.
