The Reality on the Universally Spreading of Anti-Semitism

 

We hear the tales of how anti-Semitism was historically completely found only on the right politically. The claims were that the left, the progressives were enlightened and incapable of hatred of such as it was disdainful. Why has this trope being peddled? Simple, to attempt and cleanse any guilt historically of hatred on the political left and build a structure from within which they could reflect any accusations by claiming that anyone amongst the progressive left who is caught making anti-Semitic commentary is merely an aberration, an outlier who is the exception and as such can be ignored. These will be the types of commentary made to excuse Jeremy Corbyn and his anti-Semitism. While he may lead the British Labor Party, his anti-Semitism is not really a part of the British Labor Party and thus his statements cannot be attributed to their party. The left has also forged an alliance with the new Islamic power base which is ascendant across the Middle East. This is why there have been no Islamic terrorist attacks, merely lone wolves who are insane and are not representative of true Islam. Anyone who claims that such acts are called for by the Quran are quickly attacked and told they do not understand the real Islam. They will quote the Mecca verses of the Quran while ignoring the Quranic verses written in Medina which replaced the peaceful verses they are quoting through abrogation. We wrote about this in our article Which Quran, Mecca or Medina?

 

But since the left is aligning with the emerging Islam, which is being allowed to flow pretty much unchecked into Europe and was increased in their immigration into the United States under the Hart–Celler Act which was heavily pushed by Senator Ted Kennedy in 1965, the increasing anti-Semitism cannot be a surprise to any cognizant person paying the slightest attention. All of this and the recent problems which has plagued the California Women’s March Rally Canceled over Concerns that it Would be ‘Overwhelmingly White’.” Then there is the claim that the ‘1%’ has its own ‘1%’ which was displayed on the Campus of the University of Illinois at Chicago which included the message “ENDING WHITE PRIVILEGE … STARTS WITH ENDING JEWISH PRIVILEGE” with the flyer pictured below. This was a program on the campus which was presented by an unknown individual or group but the form of the fliers resembles the concept from the anti-Wall Street protests and other leftist group agitprop. We wish such were isolated incidents but, as we have covered, and here are three examples with a multitude on following pages of numerous times, but it is spreading and appears to be swelling mostly on the far left.

There is still the reactionary right anti-Semitism which is so extreme and overt that it does not hide its hatred. Further, those on the paleo-conservative factions of the right are so universally hateful of any and all who are outside their preferred white and religiously acceptable group that they are easily identifiable which makes them less of a threat. Another truth is their numbers have been increasing but at such a slow rate that their threat is actually becoming a smaller percentage of the general population. The more active and far faster growing hatreds are on the far left, often simply referred to as leftists, and they have been becoming more and more acceptable amongst the left in general. What is the most troubling has been the Jews who are progressive supporting the left are ignoring the new democrats and leaders of groups on the left who have expressed anti-Semitic statements or shown great respect and loyalty toward Nations of Islam Louis Farrakhan. There are the pro-Palestinian anti-Israel individuals such as Jeremy Corbyn, Linda Sarsour, Carmen Perez, Tamika Mallory, Rashida Tlaib, Ilhan Omar and the numerous anti-Israel NGO’s whose supporters are practicing the modern version of anti-Semitism, protesting only that the Jews are permitted to have a nation of their own and ignoring the numerous wrongs elsewhere around our world. The fact that CAIR and the BDS movement are included in the leftist intersectionality while any groups supporting Israel is excluded as we reported within our article Truth is Often Completely Different and Unfortunate where women who desired to march in the Chicago Dyke March were refused participation because they desired marching with a rainbow flag which bore a Star of David which was too Jewish, too Israeli (see image below under next paragraph).

 

The signs are ominous as they portend a future where anti-Semitism will become acceptable on the left being referred to as an anomaly when in actuality it had taken over the mainstream leftist positions. The denial will be that the anti-Semites on the left are merely critical of Israeli policies and not the Jews. They will claim they have friends who are Jewish and will point to Jewish groups which support the Democrat Party and leftist causes and the select few who have passed the purity test of being overly critical of Israel, particularly the Israeli government, especially if the government is right wing, nationalistic or Zionist in nature, which pretty much includes almost ever Israeli political party outside Balad Party and a few others which will never win sufficient mandates to be tasked with forming a coalition. The real misfortune is many Jews adopt an ambivalent attitude if not a distasteful one because the Israeli government does not do as they demand. For some reason they look at Israel as something which is supposed to listen to the leftist Jews in the United States and ignore the demands of the people who live in Israel. We simply shrug this off as leftist arrogance rotting their minds and blurring the fact that they could always make Aliyah and become Israelis and have a vote in the future of Israel. It is not like Israel does not have a left wing as we have even a Communist party, the Maki Party and also a left wing, social-democratic and green political party named the Meretz Party. So, should Jews on the left, be they Green, Communist, internationalist or whatever stripe, either Israel has a party they would love or they could always start their own party, that appears to be a favorite pastime here in Israel, personalities and wanna-be personalities starting their own political parties, usually around times like now, immediately before elections by about three to four months.

But the problem is not so much the fading anti-Semitism on the right; it is the growing anti-Semitism on the left. What is interesting is that if one believes that socialism is the defining principle which is the left end of the political spectrum and Zionism in Israel and capitalism defines the right, then most anti-Semitism has been from the left in much of history. In the more distant history when the monarchies were the right and the religious institutions would be the left, then it was the Church and Islamic institutions which defined anti-Semitism. More recently, the main anti-Semitic politics were the national socialists, Nazis, and the internationalist socialists, Communists, which were the anti-Semitic institutions. Yes, we realize that many like to claim the Nazis were right wing mainly because they opposed Communists, but they were a socialist institution which is simply a different form of leftist ideology of socialism. Where after World War II the anti-Semitism in the United States was part of the right who were the anti-integration politics, the reality which is mostly distorted and ignored is that it was the Republican Party which sponsored and pushed both the Civil Rights Act and the Voting Rights Act and it was the southern Democrats who fought against these programs with every bit of power they held. Examples of such politicians included George Wallace, Robert Byrd and Lester Maddox, amongst others, who all fought these initiatives vigorously. The first person to fight slavery, Abraham Lincoln, was the first Republican President, another little fact which has been blurred by political propaganda which has placed the Democrats as the initiators of everything which was pro-equality in the United States. We understand that there was a long period where anti-Semitism was rampant across the entirety of the political spectrum which caused a period when the Jews were often forced to flee from their homes and flee to another nation where they would be more welcome. There are some who desire the world to return to such a period and see Israel as the main obstacle to realizing such a result, and thus another reason behind anti-Israel feelings which are obviously steeped in anti-Semitism. During the period immediately before and during World War II, the Germans believed everything was the fault of the Jew, to the Proletariat all problems could stem from the Jewish bourgeoisie, to the Arab Middle East anything can be attributed to a Zionist plot.

 

It is this growing anti-Semitism in Europe and the United States combined with the anti-Semitism of the Middle East and how that has been spread into much of the third-world and developing world, especially in places where socialism and dictatorial regimes have the political power that makes the existence of Israel all the more important. The apparent movement of so much of the world in their hate for Israel, and the way that also leads to growing anti-Semitism, makes Israel all that more important. Even the United States may soon start to distance from Israel after which there will be no check of a veto protecting Israel in the Security Council which will also lead to very serious resolutions minimally under Chapter 6 which does not demand sanctions or possibly military interventions brought against Israel and even Chapter 7 which puts all such actions in play which could have the United Nations becoming another central institution attempting to destroy Israel. We have already seen how the General Assembly along with the Human Right Council, UNESCO, UNICEF and other United Nations agencies have adopted excessively critical approach to Israel to the point of it becoming an obsession. Once the United States ends using its veto, as President Obama did with UNSC Res 2334, Israel would become vulnerable to any and every condemnation brought by those holding true animosity towards the Jewish State passing the Security Council would potentially bring the world against Israel. This is the reality Israel faces going forward and when such becomes commonplace, then the world will also find themselves free to bring the same condemnation leading to persecution leaving Israel as an island on the earth where Jews could find solace and protection. Such a situation in the world as we see her currently is not as far fetched as many like to believe, including numerous Jews.
