Jewish groups slam Trump's call for a database of US Muslims
Three Jewish groups expressed outrage and concern about Donald Trump's claim that he would create a database to track all American Muslims if he were elected president.
"Donald Trump's suggestion that we use a database to track Muslims is deeply troubling and reminiscent of darker days in American history when others were singled out for scapegoating," the Anti-Defamation League said in a statement Friday.
"Such a proposal is not only inimical to our cherished civil liberties, but it also wildly misses the goal of finding a rational balance between civil liberties and the security measures necessary to protect those liberties."
