Algemeiner: US Jewish Groups Lambaste President Trump Over ‘Abandonment’ of Kurdish Allies to ‘Deadly Whims’ of Turkey’s Erdogan

October 10, 2019

Jewish Democratic Council of America chairman Ron Klein, a former Florida Democratic congressman, said in a statement: “This decision has created a dangerous and unstable situation in the Middle East, similar to Trump’s December 2018 decision to withdraw US troops from Syria. What we said at the time remains true today — Trump’s withdrawal from Syria is a betrayal of our allies and a boon to our adversaries. It’s not ‘America First’ in any respect. Rather, it’s an ‘Iran and Russia First’ policy.’ ”
