Anti-Semitism and America

 

When people speak of anti-Semitism they normally talk about the Middle East, Europe or the Islamic lands of North Africa. If you were to claim that the anti-Semitism in the United States is actually worse you would likely be laughed out of the conversation if not the room. The problem is that you would be right in many senses of the word. The anti-Semitism in the Arab and Islamic worlds is obvious and has so few Jews on which to load such hatreds they simply aim at Israel, the new anti-Semitism which is also known as anti-Zionism or anti-Israelism. In Europe you are speaking of a similar case as most European nations outside France and Britain have negligible Jewish population on which to target their hatred so they too place their hatreds on Israel. But in the United States there are almost six-million Jews, only Israel possesses more Jews. The truth is that the vast majority of these Jews live in the ten to twenty largest cities and thus in much of the United States Jew hatred is also fixated on Israel. Where there are Jews to target they have temporarily taken a back seat to hatred of Israel but that will not last forever. Ask any Jewish student who is pro-Israel and attends one of the main liberal bastions of higher education such as the Ivy Leagues Universities, the California University System, CUNY, and any university where the BDS groups have sway and are supported by a sizeable number of professors or entertain Israel Apartheid Week or Naqba Day celebrations (which would have taken place last week and the coming week as yesterday was Israeli Independence Day outside of Israel where the Gregorian calendar is used and thus also Naqba Day. Do not accept this falsehood as the real Naqba was when the French and British Mandates divided greater Syria and those Muslim Arabs in the British Mandate feared they would be prevented from visiting Damascus which was where they were to make their Haj instead of to Mecca, a leftover from times when Mecca was blocked from the Muslims who resided in what are today Jordan, Syria, Lebanon, Iraq, Turkey and surrounding areas as they were ruled by the wrong type of Muslim, a Umayyad Dynasties before they conquered Medina and Mecca.

 

If you are a pro-Israel or religious Jew studying on an American university campus where they had Naqba Day un-celebrations, as how can one celebrate a catastrophe, then you likely already understand anti-Zionism and anti-Israelism are simply other faces of anti-Semitism as you have probably faced the fallout from these events and hate-fests. The sticking point in all of these organizations and groups who arrange these fiascos, where truth has no bearing and lies flow as truths, is their funding comes almost directly, if not directly, from the PLO or Hamas which both get the lion’s share of their monies from European nations and the United States as well as the United Nations which is largely funded by European nations and the United States. The main funnel through which these funds flow comes directly from the United States State Department which is almost always first in line in efforts to destroy the Jewish State. Such should not surprise anybody as the State Department took the lead in advising President Truman not to vote in favor of the partition plan in the General Assembly and then pressed harder along with the Pentagon to immediately invoke an arms embargo on the new Jewish State. It was fairly well known that the Arab League was going to refuse any partition plan as they were preparing for an all-out war to destroy the Jewish State and murder the Jews as soon as the British retreated from their remaining Mandate lands leaving them to the Jewish state and the Arabs to determine what would be what. The ensuing war which is often misnamed Israel’s War of Independence when in all truth it was Israel’s War of Survival which she won but in which she lost lands of Gaza, now in the hands of Hamas and its terrorist compadres, and Judea and Samaria which Jordan annexed illegally and renamed West Bank. These are the lands which in 1967 were liberated from Egypt and Jordan and in August 2005 Gaza was relented to the Arab Palestinian Authority (PA) which soon thereafter lost it to Hamas. The rest of the claims by the Arabs under the auspices of the PA which is the de-terrorized entity which replaced the PLO which was founded in 1964 by Yasser Arafat and Mahmoud Abbas with the assistance of the Soviet Union through the KGB which had as its charter the destruction of Israel as in 1964 there was no occupied lands other than Israel inside the pre-1967 borders, also called the Green Line. These are just a few of the lies portrayed as Israeli Apartheid and war crimes despite the fact that no criminal acts have ever been adjudicated in the appropriate world courts such as the International Criminal Court as those who claim that Israel has committed such crimes also know that they have no credible case to bring before an actual judicial board of international adjudicators. If any of these anti-Semites believed for even an instant that they had a valid case they would be before the world court system in a heartbeat and the fact they rely on propaganda rather than presenting factual charges is further proof they have no substance behind their claims.

But this has not prevented their subverting young minds with the willing assistance from professors of Middle Eastern Affairs which are almost universally funded by Saudi Arabia and the Gulf oil states placing their own chosen professor in these departments. These departments support every other liberal cause even if they are revolted by these acts. They support women’s rights despite the misogyny practiced in their homelands. They support same sex marriage and the rest of the LGBT agenda despite the fact that such practices are punished by death in their home nations. They support every leftist cause for the same reason others support every leftist cause, if you support me we will support you. Through such actions they are perceived as being tolerant and open minded thus making Israel the enemy of all these groups. Never mind that Israel is the only nation in the Middle East which has an open LGBT community, is the only nation where women have equal rights, are allowed to drive, go out on their own, vote and every other right enjoyed by men and the only truly open and equal society under the law and in practice. Still, the leftist true to their operations manual support those who support them thus support the Arabists. But these concepts rise and run far deeper than simply protesting Israel or condemning Zionism. These actions lead where they must lead if logically followed to their conclusive end, the result of hating Jews.

 

By hating or opposing the rights of Israel to exist or for there to be a Jewish State and holding Israel to a separate and equally impossible standard of actions while expecting nothing from those who wish to destroy Israel, one is attempting to deny the Jews their right to self-determination and to having their own state. When one claims that Israel must use methods of fighting against Hamas, a declared terrorist organization by the European Union and the United States as well as many individual governments throughout the world even in some Arab and Muslim nations, and that Israel must suffer equal numbers of casualties and deaths otherwise they are fighting unfairly are acting from a base of anti-Semitism. They are demanding of Israel what has never been demanded of any military or nation previously in the history of the world, namely suffering equal casualties and deaths in a war. By this standard the British and Americans are just as bad or worse with their treatment of the Nazis and the Japanese. The entire object in the use of a nation’s military is to maximize casualties on their enemy while suffering as few casualties as possible. The leftist and anti-Israel groups are demanding that Israel be punished for taking care and spending resources to defend their people while Hamas does everything in their effort to maximize the numbers of their own citizens suffer and become casualties as they possibly are capable. Israel works to minimize Arab Gazan’s casualties and deaths while Hamas uses civilians as human shields while targeting civilians, a double war crime.

 

Still there is a trending amongst the college educated youths to loathe Israel, Zionism and whether they will admit it or not, loathe Jews as well. These are the next leaders of the United States. President Obama is just the tip of the spear, and the first spear at that. Should Hillary Clinton or Bernie Sanders win the election this fall, there are two things we can guarantee will prove true, Israel will be vilified and reviled while Jewish students and those who support Israel will be treated as pariahs. Even Jews supporting the BDS groups will find themselves treated with suspicion and wild accusations. If the youth attend a college which supports BDS, especially if it is supported by professors, then they are going to be bludgeoned and set upon as murderers and baby killers. Eventually these individuals are to be our new leaders who will have taken the positions of power and control the ballot box electing those who are like-minded. There will be the temptation to use the same canards taught them during their years in university protesting Israel and sloganeering about the evil Israelis and use this to apply the same labels to the Jews in their midst. Their hatreds learned protesting the presumed evils of an Apartheid Israel which victimized Arabs and Muslims will become societal truths and when they turn on Israel in foreign policies their will be the temptation to victimize the Jews found in their nation making them equally responsible for any perceived hatreds and inequalities in their lands. The term Israel will become synonymous with the Jew and Israeli with Jewish and by this equality which was part and parcel of their BDS schooling and their hate for Israel will bring a society which holds the Jews responsible for all that is wrong in their lives. Should the economy hurt, the Jews are to blame. This story has been played out before in our history. As soon as we appear to assimilate there comes a hatred to remind us that we are different somehow. It will matter not that the Jews were contributing members who gave great advances to their society; the Jew must be separated from the society. Jews were amongst the leaders of the Civil Rights movement and are today blamed for much of the economic inequality in much between the races. How much worse will it become throughout the society when the aim will be to separate the Jew from the society as the Jew will have become the ills that are present in that same society. Any act will become the next reason that the Jews were to blame and just as in university where they desired to destroy Israel this will translate for most to destroy the Jews as doing so will equate to destroying Israel herself.

 

When the United States does turn on her Jews, it will be built quietly and befall them suddenly with a ferocity and immediacy far beyond that which is witnessed today in Europe and this will seem to the Jews to have happened in an instant as they still believed they were accepted as in their circles they were treated well. The sword will fall seemingly from outside their cocooned lives but it will have built up even in those close who were simply keeping their suspicions and eventual hated silently inside as their resentment mirrored the greater societal disdain and even hate for the Jew. Perhaps not their Jew but they will still turn on them along with the rest of the Jews as some eggs must break when making this omelet.

Reflective Spurs Reactive

 

Reflective and reactive sound similar enough and both are applied to an action that many people do not bother to differentiate between the two, they just dismiss them as two ways of getting to a similar result. Part of the reason behind this is our Western society has become so results oriented that the method of reaching results have been so compromised that we seem to believe that the means really do not matter. Such thinking is sloppy and undisciplined and the reason that many see no difference between reflective and reactive if they were to produce similar results. This reasoning, or lack thereof, is what leads many to measure the terror war now being waged against Israel by the numbers of dead largely and the numbers injured to a lesser extent. This is where the fact that more Arabs have died and less Jews that Israel must be doing something immoral as results are all that matter.

 

So let us take a moment and break down the particulars and discover the real importance of the differences between reflective and reactive. The dictionary defines reflective as “given to, marked by, or concerned with meditation or deliberation.” The dictionary defines reactive as “pertaining to or characterized by reaction, pertaining to or characterized by reactance.” Simplifying this down an act which is reflective is premeditated, planned and intentionally performed and reactive is unplanned reflex performed due to an external threat, stimulus, peril, provocation or incitement. In any situation where there are two related actions in a situation, one reflective and the other reactive, there is only one order the two acts can occur. The reflective act must be the initiating act and the reactive must be the following action as a response to the reflective or intentional action. These are the exact order which has been occurring in Israel with the terrorist actions being the reflective act, as they are premeditated and planned to assault Israelis, preferably Jews. Despite the target being general in nature, the action is still planned even if not to the exact target and the reaction to these assaults where somebody is attempting to stab innocent civilians and is stabbing one victim and then attempts to attack another and it is evident they will continue doing so until prevented, spurs the reactive action which often is a police or military individual or an armed civilian and often thus results in the death of the terrorist. Should the Arab terrorists, instead of deciding one morning to go and stab as many Israelis as possible until prevented from continuing, decide that there is more to living than there is to rewards in some paradise gained through murdering others; the entire pyramid would collapse from the bottom up. Unfortunately, these youths get themselves so worked-up and convinced they will receive rewards in heaven if they die while committing murderous terror actions such that the pleasures, often sexual in nature, will increase with the number of Jews or Israelis that they murder, with partial credit for maimed and injured; they have a double inspiration, one to murder Israeli civilians or soldiers (yes some attack armed soldiers or law enforcement officers as they just want to go straight to Islamic heaven) and continue attacking until martyred, killed to end their stabbings spree.

 

Some of the reactive actions have, as well as the terrorist act, have been caught on surveillance cameras. Part of the reason that more terrorists have been killed than Jews have been murdered is because some of these untrained terrorists attack people causing grievous wounds but survivable and the terrorist refuses to stop even if shot and injured. They continue to try and attack and attack until stopped permanently; they really live little other choice. Below is a video from October 13, 2015, where the terrorist makes his initial strike driving his car across the oncoming lane striking pedestrians until hitting a bus stop. The terrorist then exits the car with a hatchet or hand axe and starts smashing those he had just run over and then continues on to attack another victim when an armed civilian arrives and shoots the terrorist who continues to attempt to attack as he gets shot a second and third time. He still attempted to get up and after being shot again and eventually appears to be trying to return to his car either to escape or grab yet another weapon. He eventually died from his wounds if memory serves us well. He was driving his company provided vehicle and was presumably on the clock working and had a well-paying job within Israel inside the Green Line. One would have thought he might be the poster for success for coexistence between Jews and Arabs working together for the same company with equal standing, but apparently in some instances such opportunity is no contest against the constant feed of instigation by the Palestinian Authority on Arab radio and television broadcast from the autonomous Arab areas in Judea and Samaria and on social media. The instigation is a tried and useful method as the media provocations used are the exact same as was used by the Arab authorities in the late 1920s and through the 1930s by the Grand Mufti of Jerusalem both from Arab areas and from strong radio facilities in the Balkans aimed into the Arab world with the assistance of the Nazis with whom the Mufti spent World War II. We discussed this at some greater depth in our article The New Anti-Semitism Palestinianism.

 

 

 

 

The difference between reflective actions as the instigator of reactive acts has to be used as a filter upon reading or hearing the news, editorials, commentary or anything regarding the Arab Israeli Conflict; and that is what this is as the entirety of the Arab world has been working to destroy Israel since the very morning Israel was founded in May 15, 1948 when seven Arab national armies invaded Israel intent on a genocidal conflict which they believed they would win in a matter of days if not hours. The war dragged on for close to two years before a final armistice was hammered out. The end result was Israel had lost control over parts of Judea and Samaria along with Eastern Jerusalem to Jordan and Gaza to Egypt. More wars followed and in each case Israel not only survived but took back the remainder of Judea and Samaria and the remainder of Jerusalem as well as Gaza. Israel also took the Golan Heights and the Sinai Peninsula. Israel made peace with Egypt and returned the Sinai but Egypt refused any offer to reoccupy Gaza allowing it to be returned to Israel as it was within the original boundaries. When peace was made with Jordan, Jordan relented the rest of Judea and Samaria as well as Jerusalem ending Jordanian occupation of Israeli lands thus ending the occupation of the lands which were a part of Israel on the morning before the combined armies attacked. The Mufti of Jerusalem encouraged the Arabs to leave Israel promising them within a few weeks they would return to a vanquished Zionist entity and share the spoils with the conquering heroes but something did not quite turn out as the Mufti had promised. The Jews lost the war as far as they lost territory, Gaza and East Jerusalem along with parts of Judea and Samaria but had survived and in a celebration of that survival they referred to the victory inaccurately as the Israeli War for Independence. The spirit of the latest Intifada, terror war, instigations or whatever one wishes to call these assaults on civilians by terrorists seeking dead Jews and their own martyrdom can be reflected in the images below which tell the tale more adequately than words could ever do.

Har Nof Synagogue Terror Attack which Murdered Four Rabbis and injured half a dozen worshipers and murdered a Druze policeman who attempted to save the other worshipers. This was the cartoon which festooned the Facebook pages and homepage of the Palestinian Authority as well as the Fatah Party homepage, both organizations headed by Mahmoud Abbas who has editorial approval for all posts presumably.

Israel had independence at midnight and one second on May 15, 1948 and at that point, before the Arab armies invaded at dawn, the Israeli border included all of the Negev including Gaza and the Blue Line as the border with Lebanon is denoted and the Jordan River. The lands that the Arabs claim they lost to the Israelis because of the patrician as described in the General Assembly Resolution 181 which was the United Nations suggestion of a solution of granting the Arabs a second home sharing the lands which were promised the Zionists for them homeland after Jordan was cut from their original lands. When the Arab League refused that offer as they demanded what they are still demanding, including Mahmoud Abbas and the rest of the Palestinian Authority, Hamas, Islamic Jihad, Hezballah, Islamic State, al-Qaeda, Iran, Saudi Arabia and many more nations, terrorist groups, NGOs, European politicians, American and Canadian Politicians, United Nations Secretary General Ban Ki-Moon (or at least by his actions he favors such) and who knows who else or cares as there are sufficient known forces that any others really make little difference. The thing necessary to remember is that the Arab Armies attacking Israel that morning was a reflective action as any unprovoked attack of those proportions can be nothing else as accidentally attacking with multiple divisions of militaries from numerous nations’ rules accidental encroachment of Israel’s borders out of the equation and certifies such as a planned execution which was further backed by the threats made by the Mufti of Jerusalem on Jordanian and Egyptian radio and Arab radio within Israel played his threats and promises to those Arabs who would vacate Israel so the conquering armies could simply slaughter everybody they found. This proved true when after stopping a bus of doctors and nurses the Arab forces executed them on the spot as impure infidels not worthy of life. The reality is the Arab Palestinians led by Mahmoud Abbas have the blessings of numerous other national Arab leaders, Iran and nearly uncountable Arabs around the world which is why the cartoon below is so accurate.

Yes, we know Israel has won every war and has nuclear weapons just as Iran will have produced by the time President Obama leaves office and a superior number should another American President be chosen by sloganeering and pretending the world has not been affected by the absence of American leadership and continue the policies of ignoring the world and going back to sleep as was the standard by the United States only given up due to the Cold War. What the American people choose will have either a willing to take back their mantle of the lone super power or soon be destroyed by Iranian nuclear weapons used in a far more effective manner if you only have four or five EMP producing weapons with only an unsteady delivery system. The main wish is that the Middle East and North Africa (MENA) do not explode into an even greater conflagration as such a revolt against the governments throughout the MENA nations and potentially result in an even greater flow of refugees fleeing broken nations with no effective governance and lawlessness beyond measure. The problem is such uncontrolled waves of immigration could just as easily be bringing terror operatives and instigators along with the refugees as Europe is realizing to their horror. One can only pray that there are sufficient numbers of refugees who are willing to turn in any terror or organizers from terror groups such that the lack of screening does not cause many people’s worst fears, both within Europe and others outside who would hate to see all the art and other great works and historic buildings destroyed simply because they insult Islam according to some crazed Imam such as the one with the knife pictured above.
