Top US Rabbis Slam Glenn Beck

A group of top American Rabbis representing the spectrum of Jewish belief has placed a full page ad in the Washington Post asking Rupert Murdoch to sanction Glenn Beck.   The ad is signed by the heads of the Orthodox, Conservative, Reform and Reconstructionist Jewish movements.

The Rabbis are apparently inflamed by Beck's three-part series denouncing George Soros as a "Jewish boy helping to send the Jews to the [Nazi] death camps."

They're also outraged at Fox News chief Roger Ailes who defended Beck's constant Nazi references, dismissing Beck's critics as, "left-wing rabbis who basically don't think that anybody can ever use the word 'Holocaust' on the air."

The ad was said to have cost somewhere in the six figures.   Fox has not responded to new enquiries.
