A group of American rabbis is calling on Fox News to sanction personality Glenn Beck for “his completely unacceptable attacks” on Holocaust survivor George Soros.

In an ad that was scheduled to run in Thursday’s Wall Street Journal and in a letter to Fox News owner Rupert Murdoch, the rabbis note Beck’s recent attack on the billionaire Soros and the response by Fox News chief Roger Ailes that the outrage was confined to “left-wing rabbis.”

“We respectfully request that Glenn Beck be sanctioned by Fox News for his completely unacceptable attacks on a survivor of the Holocaust and Roger Ailes apologize for his dismissive remarks about rabbis’ sensitivity to how the Holocaust is used on the air,” the letter said.

Signatories included leading figures of the Reform, Reconstructionist and Conservative movements. They call for Beck to stop talking about the Holocaust and the Nazis.

The ad was paid for by Jewish Funds for Justice, a liberal group that earlier this month delivered a petition to Fox calling for Beck’s ouster. Also, the group organized a response last year after Beck said the term “social justice” was a code for Nazism and communism.
