Right-wing Knesset member: Reform Judaism a ‘fake religion’

ed note–he is right. Just like being a ‘little bit’ pregnant, those who are trying to soften the more abrasive, cutting, and obnoxious characteristics of Judaism in order to make it APPEAR more acceptable to the world are engaging in something as fraudulent as putting lipstick on a pig. Judaism is what Judaism is, and there is no PR stunt or Extreme Makeover campaign that can alter its inherently violent, racist, and supremacist nature, and those who attempt to do so are not just deluded, but indeed deliberately deceptive.
A right-wing Israeli lawmaker known for his controversial statements called Reform Judaism a “fake religion.”
Jewish Home party member Bezalel Smotrich, who created a stir in April for saying Jewish women should not have to share hospital rooms with Arab women, made his remarks about the Reform movement on Thursday, The Times of Israel reported.
The latest remark came days after the Knesset passed a law permitting local religious authorities to bar non-Orthodox conversion ceremonies from their public mikvahs.
Smotrich told a meeting of his party’s youth activists that he was “not willing to recognize Reform conversions and their fake religion.”
He also has made numerous anti-LGBT remarks, last year referring to the Jerusalem Gay Pride Parade as an “abomination parade” just days after a 16-year-old participant was murdered there by a Haredi Orthodox assailant.
Smotrich in May called on the Israeli government to perpetrate “revenge” against Palestinians, saying it would prevent individual Jews from perpetrating anti-Palestinian acts of violence.
