Some 100 Jews, including recognizable leaders, have penned a letter to business magnate Elon Musk telling him to “X out hate” on the social-media platform he now owns.
“As Jewish leaders of all backgrounds, current and former leaders of Jewish organizations, artists and activists from all over the country, we have watched in horror as a new stage in antisemitic discourse has spread like wildfire on one of America’s largest social-media networks,” the group wrote.
Under Musk, X has become a “breeding ground for some of the most dangerous antisemitic discourse in America,” according to the group.
They asked governments and companies to stop partnering with Musk, “who spreads neo-Nazi ideology,” and told Disney, Apple, Amazon and other major advertisers to boycott the company and Apple and Google to remove the X app from their stores.
Among the signatories are author and Orthodox Rabbi Yitz Greenberg; former New York City politician Ruth Messinger; Dov Waxman, chair of the Israel Studies Center at the University of California, Los Angeles; and American-born Israeli writer David Hazony.
