Anti-Semitism Enzyme Injected to Overwhelm the Left

 

The Left believes itself immune from the infection of anti-Semitism claiming the alt-right, all those not believing as the chosen of the Progressive movement, are the only anti-Semites in existence. Their targets are the White Supremacists, the Ku Klux Klan, the Nazis and others who simply hate everyone not like-minded which they believe includes all Jews. They find evidence such as the poster pictured below which calls for white people to join with these Nazis at the Daily Stormer which is a hate site. This, they claim, is the real threat the Jews face, not the leftists and their new friends in the Islamic world. They claim anyone purporting that Muslims are enemies of the Jews and Israel merely do not understand the problems in Israel and that, after all, “Islam is the religion of peace,” as they say over and over. They point to the numbers of Jews who fill their ranks as the vast majority of American Jews, the Reform and Conservative movements as well as the New or Open Orthodox, a group of activist leftist Jews who desire to force Israel to accept their interpretations of a new Judaism which they wish to define with a definition which is more leftist than Jewish. But they accept these Jews so they cannot be anti-Semitic. Whatever you do, do not ask them about the very religious Traditional Orthodox Jews as the leftists have a great animosity for traditional Jews as well as Christians. To these leftists, all religion is simply superstition and the only truth in the world is their leftist agendas.

They will tell you that all anti-Semitism exists solely on the right and the media will often agree with this definition. They will claim that their problem is not with the Jewish People; their problem is with the policies of Israel and especially with those of Prime Minister Netanyahu. This was so well exemplified by the efforts made by President Bill Clinton and again later by President Obama to defeat Prime Minister Netanyahu when he was running for election once each. President Clinton succeeded in getting Netanyahu defeated and all of a sudden, with a leftist government in power in Israel, the Democrats and the American left were all enamored with Israel. As soon as the Likud Party was reelected to power, then the love affair was over. Simply put, the American Left is only happy when the Israeli left is in power and when Israeli right and religious parties take power the American left goes ballistic, just as they have since President Trump was elected only not quite as insane. It is easy to understand, they believe that the only people who are groomed and destined to run the world are they and their fellow travelers. The left are the sole people who have the means of making the world into a wonderful place and when anybody else wins the election it is a scourge to be fought against with everything that the left can bring including revolution. There are groups such as Anti-Fa (anti-Fascist), Black Lives Matter (BLM), The Revolution, ANSWER (Act Now to Stop War and End Racism), Boycott, Divestment and Sanction (BDS), Students for Justice in Palestine (SJP), CODEPINK, End the Occupation Now, and numerous smaller groups plus the leftist media backing which also provides these groups political cover by under reporting their divisive actions and rhetoric and through portrayals which show them in an air-brushed image.

 

The media is complicit in their reporting which gives full support to the left progressive and its agenda while giving critical coverage to those not on the left doing everything even to include inventing stories. This has been one of the items which were exposed by President Trump and which has severely damaged the remaining credibility of much of the media. In many ways, they have only themselves to blame. Their refusal to recognize the real anti-Semitism residing in their own camp is, at times, astonishing. When this anti-Semitic flier was found on the campus at the University of Illinois at Chicago, initially it was denied until numbers of them were produced and research was done by the Forward and Alan Dershowitz providing proof of the poster and its existence (see below). This is normal and is not restricted to posters but also to the lack of covering the near revolts and violence exhibited when conservative speakers are invited to speak at many Universities and the leftists actions either get the event cancelled, moved to a place well off the campus thus making it near impossible for students to attend, to shouting down speakers refusing to permit them to be heard. There have also been reports linking Anti-Fa and anti-Semitism, as was also found with Occupy Wall Street, and the left’s preoccupation with anti-Zionist and anti-Israeli activities such as the Campus events including BDS, Israel Apartheid Week, Palestinian Die-Ins and other demonstrations against Israel. Many of these demonstrations expanded from being anti-Israel to anti-Jew and all too often resulted in violence against Jews on these campuses.

The problem is that Israel is simply the new Jew to be chosen for violation and destruction and anti-Zionism as the key to these efforts. The new anti-Semite will claim they are just against Israeli policies or they are not against Jews, just Zionists. Anti-Zionism is anti-Semitism unless one is against every mono-cultural or mono-ethnic nation which would include but not limited to being against Japan, China, both Koreas, India, twenty-one Arab nations, France, Germany, England, Scotland, Ireland, Russia and more. But the anti-Zionists are not against any of these monolithic nations, just the Jewish one, which is the definition of anti-Semitism. One will need to wait and see how these groups react to Kurdish calls for having their own independent nations and the Basque People or the Catalonian Movements in Spain, the Assyrians or the Zoroastrian movement in Iran or the Tibetan people who wish for a free Tibet which was conquered by China during 1951. For reasons which the progressive left would like us to believe has nothing to do with anti-Semitism, the only group which is reviled and protested has been those supporting Israel and Zionism.

There will likely be produced groups which will start to disparage the Kurds as Arab oil money and Islamic supremacy start to denigrate the Kurds should they start to move towards independence. The Arab oil wealth combined with their stranglehold on Europe and affiliations with the Progressive left and the far left through their anti-Israel campaigns will utilize their connections to smear any effort by the Kurds for independence since the Kurds, despite being Islamic, are not the right form of Islam. The Shia will hate them because they are not Shiite Muslims and the Sunni Muslims will deny their independence on the basis despite their being Sunni as well simply because they are not Arab. There is a lesson to be learned in the fight with the Kurds by the other Sunnis and the hate for Iran by many Sunni as part of the great Shia-Sunni divide in Islam, the result is that the purest form of Islam which is to be desired is for there to be all Arab Sunni Muslims and once that purity is met, then comes deciding which Imam is the divine choice of the Prophet, and after that, who knows what the fight will be about or will this result that in the end there can be only one. The problem is all these protests claim that there must be a winner, a single surviving winner, to which we have an answer to those who claim that in the end there can be only one.

 

The Answer

Truth of the World Against Israel

 

Probably one of the most perfect examples of how the Europeans felt about the prospect of Israel being driven into the sea by Arab forces during the October 1973 Yom Kippur War was their response to the United States even before any request had been sought to refuel the aircraft which were to be used to airlift resupply of munitions and other supplies for which they were running dangerously short and without which they would have soon been fighting the Arabs without armaments for their aircraft, bullets for their rifles, shells for their armor and artillery or fuel for their planes, tanks and vehicles. The refusal was unanimous as every United States ally from NATO and Europe declined to permit refueling of any planes used to resupply Israel and was sent to Washington D.C. even before the White House or Pentagon had even made any request. In time, Portugal was convinced to permit refueling to take place at the Lajes Field in the Azores Islands. This deplorable treatment of the United States effort to assist Israel completely outstrips their votes in the United Nations General Assembly and explains fully their votes, or abstentions, in votes by UNESCO, the United Nations Security Council, the United Nations Human Rights Council and numerous other international bodies. Simply stated, most of Europe would like nothing better than for Israel to disappear as long as all that is required of them is to sit on the sidelines and refuse to lift a finger. But how much further does this hatred of Israel reach? And do not get this wrong, hatred of Israel, the only Jewish State, is the new anti-Semitism, especially when these nations and individuals who refuse to support Israel and go to extremes to injure or destroy anything to do with Israel show no such hatred and spite towards any other nation in the world. This becomes even more obvious when one compares the voting habits and statements of nations and politicians and others towards anything Israel and their lack of such vindictiveness when considering nations whose actions are honestly contemptible compared to those of Israel when judged by an honest broker, and we are not trying to suggest that we would be such a broker, and we admit that we obviously support Israel though not to a fault as we have pointed out errors and missteps when they occur.

 

In the Arab, and most of the Muslim world, hatred for Israel is universal and all but goes without saying. Of the Muslim world outside the Arab nations, Iran and Pakistan are likely the most hateful countries with Iran having demonstrations where “Death to Israel” is the theme that the gathered chant. What might surprise many not familiar with the Middle East is that of the nations which repeatedly top the list of most anti-Semitic nations, one of them is a nation which actually has a peace treaty with Israel, Jordan. The top ten most anti-Israel locations according to Times of Israel are as follows;

1) The Palestinian Territories (West Bank and Gaza) 93% overall index score
2) Iraq 92% overall index score
3) Yemen 88% overall index score
4) Algeria 87% overall index score
5) Libya 87% overall index score
6) Tunisia 86% overall index score
7) Kuwait 82% overall index score
8) Bahrain 81% overall index score
9) Jordan 81% overall index score
10) Morocco/Qatar/UAE tied at 80% overall index score

 

One does not have to go any further than the General Assembly and the votes taken in that body over the years concerning Israel to get a general idea. Looking just slightly deeper one can find a similar bias in the United Nations Human Rights Council, UNESCO and the Security Council where without the veto of the United States, the Security Council would likely even vote to declare Israel a non-entity and persona non-grata at the United Nations. Of course, one might see such a move as an advantage for Israel as the United Nations has not exactly been the most supportive body over the past number of decades. The saving grace for Israel is that the International Court System is composed of judges who are sworn to decide cases strictly by the letter of the law. This restriction takes out much of the politics but even this has not been completely indemnifying. Still, the fact that the World Courts are presumed to be confined by the letter of the law has prevented the Palestinians or Arab League from bringing Israel before the courts attempting to accomplish there what they have failed to do on the battlefield in their numerous attempts to erase the Jewish State by military force. While it is true that the United Nations provided the impetus under which the State of Israel received world recognition, had the British not pressed that they were leaving no matter the situation that vote would never have taken place. The world was content as was the United Nations to wait forever if that was what it took to end any chance for a Jewish State as long as the British remained in place preventing such. When pressed to act the United Nations reversed against their own Charter Article 80 which placed them as responsible for holding up the promise to grant the Jewish state the remainder of the British Mandate, that 22% which remained after the Arab State for Arab Palestinians had been established, namely Jordan which comprised 78% of the British Mandate lands. The United Nations did not have the authority to try and split that sliver of land in half establishing a second Arab Palestinian state and this should remain as the law enforced by the World today.

 

Do not hold your breathe waiting for the world to act as promised when their real desire is the elimination of Israel. What is sad is that Israel is one of the first nations to be on scene at any natural disaster worldwide with a hospital, search and rescue teams, and trained personnel to handle whatever the emergency might be. Israel also sends teams of their experts in medicine, agriculture and other fields to developing nations to assist them in furthering their development and assisting with establishing infrastructure and even assisting in setting up new departments within hospitals such as their Save and Child’s Heart campaign. There was one time where the United Nations worked with and approved of Israeli assistance to the world with assisting nations with agriculture and leading new technologies to be spread to the world saving water and growing greater plant yields voting for the Israeli motion on these efforts. Another time the United Nations World Health Organization recognized the Israeli army’s field hospital, classifying it as its first and only “Type 3” field hospital, recognizing it as the “the number one in the world.” If only all the United Nations organizations could operate without the anti-Israel and anti-Semitic blinders we might actually find a path to a better world.

Still with the direction the world has been drifting, as represented in the last Anti-Defamation League Index of Anti-Semitism which reported there being approximately 1.1 billion people worldwide holding predominant anti-Semitic feelings or ideas out of just over 4.16 billion surveyed. That is a total of 26% of those surveyed expressing anti-Semitic biases of a measurably significant basis (see map below for breakdown by regions). Making things detected even further disturbing was the fact that this trend has been growing annually across many regions. This past year proved to have been the worst year on record. This is something we can back in our own experiences as we mostly resided in areas outside the typical Jewish neighborhood. We found that support for Israel depended on religious observance with those most likely to stand approvingly and appreciably with Israel being the most observant attending services as well. As depicted in the study of worldwide anti-Semitism, such beliefs are rising often in greater percentages than the national increases in numbers of Muslims. Traditional anti-Semitism was found to be rising disturbingly fastest amongst Europeans. Another idea that was validated was the fact that many places where a Jew was not known to have resided also often had high relative anti-Semitism amongst those who reportedly had never encountered a Jewish person.

Another disturbing revelation of late has been the change in the demographic of the kind of person most likely to hate Jews and detest Israel with the right becoming less anti-Israel with the main remnant of such hate relegated to the farthest extremes while on the left the amount of anti-Semitic and anti-Israel feelings on the rise. This has been particularly true amongst the colleges and universities, especially in the United States and Europe. Much of this has had the blame placed on the rise of the Palestinian Arab sympathy and support movements. These include the Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions on Israel Movement (BDS) and the anti-Israel organized events played out on North American and European campuses such as the Apartheid Wall, Israel Apartheid Day or Week or even Month and other various events meant to demean Israel as an oppressive, colonialist regime worthy of scorn. When one traces the beginnings of such events one finds that behind them are a plethora of leftist organizations and groups such as American Muslims for Palestine (AMP), Students for Justice in Palestine (SJP), the Jewish Voice for Peace (JVP), BDS Movement and other left-leaning to overt left-wing groups; what one finds is that the majority are either ancillary groups which sprung up in sympathy and the Islamic based groups almost all come from the Arab League boycott of Israel which was best made public back in the September 1967 Khartoum Resolution with its “Three No’s” which were “no peace with Israel, no negotiations with Israel, no recognition of Israel.” The other birthing place for many Islamic based or Arab based groups was the Muslim Brotherhood and often with roots in Hamas. The newest origin of such feelings comes from Iran and is instigated and directed often by arms of the al-Quds Brigades division of the IRGC (Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps). These efforts are backed by Saudi Arabia, Qatar, Bahrain and the other oil rich Arab states and have been a concerted effort through propaganda and subversive activities, which had some assistance and guidance early on by the KGB. The reasoning for the KGB assistance was that these groups were seen as recruitment arms for KGB sympathizers and as another way to disrupt the United States further dividing it and turning American against American and weakening American resolve in the Middle East providing openings for the Soviet Union.

The last subject which requires coverage is the means testing by which one determines if any anti-Israel demonstration or event is anti-Semitism or legitimate criticism of Israel. One of the most used means is through the application of Natan Sharansky’s “Three-D’s Test for Anti-Semitism and discerning such from honest and legitimate criticism of Israel. These three D’s are Demonization, Delegitimization and Double Standards which are defined more in depth here. To give a short overview these are readily applicable to much of today’s anti-Israel near hysteria. Demonization takes a little knowledge of history and traditional and historic anti-Semitic canards. One which easily translates was the “blood libel” that the “Jews murdered Jesus” where the anti-Israel incarnation would be any picture of an Israeli Defense Force (IDF) soldier pointing a gun at a Palestinian, usually an innocent looking youth who is particularly photogenic, with the message of “You are killing me all over again.” Another is the “blood libel” that the “Jews murder and use the blood of Christian children to bake the special matzah” with the replacement of Christian with Muslim or Palestinian you have an instant message which is anti-Semitic. Any use of Nazi propaganda or Christian “blood libels” or Islamic denouncing of Jews from the Caliphate times, the Quran, Hadiths and the Sīra. Some have begun to use the term Judaeophobia to describe all actions or forms of anti-Semitism and anti-Israelism. This allows one who has crossed the lines of proper and useful opposition or accusations against Israel as being a Judeophobe, a word of similar nature to Homophobe or Islamophobe. Using this wording often clarifies the situation such that you simply place Israel into a phraseology which is of a similar vein to the Islamophobic or Homophobic hate speech or action and instead place Israel or Israelis into such text and you have entered the realm of anti-Semitism. Below is a video by Caroline Glick’s explanation for the constant thread of anti-Semitism and its symptoms in a brief fifteen-minute talk followed by Richard Littlejohn and his coverage of British anti-Semitism which includes some anti-Israel views all from 2007 era in a forty-five-minute video of a special broadcast we believe was from the BBC and finally a full-hour by Rabbi Ken Spiro who covers many aspects and has some very unique insights and historical references which prove how modern and new the current anti-Semitism gripping the world actually is and how much of its roots are in the last few hundred years with most in the last century.

American Liberal Jews, Israel, Funding, Freedom and Self-Respect

 

American Jews just supported Hillary Clinton in impressive style garnering her an impressive over three-to-one count, just a little shy of their support for Barack Obama averaging his two runs. Their claim that they supported President Obama despite his stance on Israel, especially after his first term betrayals of the Jewish State at every opportunity, because he actually was doing Israel a favor by cutting ties. They promised after the Iran deal not to be taken again and here we are back at square one with one blessing, they lost the election. We need to take a closer look at some of the American Jewish leftist groups and reveal truths about them. Some come right out and claim they want to destroy Israel as the Jewish State in order to save Israel as a democracy. J-Street is one such group and apparently are unable to figure out that if they got their way, then there would be no Israel should the need ever arise in the future for Jews to run to safety. The American Jews should ask themselves whether they are really serious when they wish to sacrifice Israel on the altar of Progressive Leftist Liberalism. Many will answer that doing so is the best alternative for Jews as their real future is within the United States and not trying to relive ancient history. They will claim that we Zionists are the ones who require a reality check because there is no Hashem which will gather the Jews back and make a great nation of Israel after two thousand years because the Torah was just some old scroll written by Moses if he ever really existed. They will further place as evidence the differing writing styles as proof that Torah was written in different periods by groups of political-religious philosophers who wrote some very handy parables but Torah is no more than a fiction which holds no real value to the reality of Jews today. These are the same people who also claim that the American Constitution is a living document which must be reinterpreted by their leftist leaders so it applies to the society they intend to build and not to preserve a society built back some two-hundred years ago. They make a similar claim about both the Torah and the Constitution, they claim both are great reads but have no real relevance to the world today and need be put on the shelf while they move forward with building a Utopia.

 

The reality is that the American Constitution was a work of brilliance with minds of a group of patriots who were the best America had to offer at that time and their experiences with the Crown of England and the Articles of Federation gave them a real look into what the soul of a governance need be and they worked very hard to craft a document that was to be the frame for the future of the United States and to survive intact and be applied for all time. To them it was not a work in progress but the culmination of everything they knew and loved and was supposed to be set in stone and applied exactly as written. They wrote it in the common language not using Latin or legalese but plain English such that every American would understand its plain language. Where there is vagueness it is partly due to language having changed and for some wiggle-room but not to be used to apply legal crowbars until the document is split wide open.

 

Torah is an even more carefully worded document and is also a history of the Israelite People, the forefathers of today’s Jews wherever they may be found. The stories in the Torah and the Old Testament have withstood archeological research and as time continues there comes more and more cases of proof of the stories, the histories, told in Torah. Torah is to be applied literally and there have been volumes of writings by Rabbis over the ages dissecting every world with the greatest volumes being included in the writings of the Talmud. The Oral Code is the miracle for adjusting Jewish life to fit the times and perhaps with time there will be further works compiled as well as new writings giving us a better fit with the Oral Code as it is to be followed today. Until then we will simply live with what is available and work first to rebuilding our homelands and gathering our flocks home, those willing to join in the making of the final Israel and readying her for the coming of the Messiah. This is the splitting point between the American leftist Jews and the majority of Israeli Jews including those who made Aliyah from the United States. This also might explain the complete disparity between the two groups voting patterns where Trump was more supported in Israel by near equal a ratio as Clinton won the American Jewish vote.

 

There is one point where we differ from many Israeli Jews from the United States and actually agree with the leftist American Jews though for entirely different reasons. Odd as it may sound, ending the suckling of Israel to the tune of billions of dollars is an idea whose time approaches and would be a great offer for Prime Minister Netanyahu to give President Trump as Israel’s present to assist with the United States balancing their budget and putting their house in order. Granted Israel will still require the financial arrangements for acquiring the F-35 JSF (Joint Strike Fighter) as the new mainstay for the Israeli Air Force as already set in place and agreed upon. But if Israel can arrange that we end the military ties where Israel is dependent upon the United States as a junior partner requiring the largesse of the United States to survive can and should end. Israel would also gain from such an arrangement as this would bring any future Israeli mainstay for our Air force home to be designed and produced in Israel. Would we require purchasing parts from other nations such as the possibility of procuring jet turbine engines from Boeing or McDonald Douglass, Lockheed-Martin or Pratt & Whitney? Yes, and we would also be free to buy Rolls-Royce power plants choosing between the three companies (see below images) and any others for the best deal for the Shekel. Relying on Israeli designs and Israeli production for as much of any future aircraft as can be done in Israel would boost the Israeli economy, provide tens of thousands of jobs over the years and make Israel a competitor in the military aircraft industry. Israel could partner with whomever they choose without having to receive United States approval for every step which could only strengthen Israeli ties with other nations such as India, Brazil, Britain, Russia, China or who knows as the possibilities are magnificently broad and open. And of course Israel could still team with the United States and doing such might be the best natural fit, time will tell. After all, does not Israel manufacture one of the best main battle tanks, the Merkava IV currently if we remember correctly? Why, yes, they sure do.

In so many other areas Israel and the United States share many common interests but the Palestinian situation has not been one of the stronger ones. Contrary to what many American Jews are fearing, President Elect Donald Trump is not a racist, not an anti-Semite and not any of the phobic identity titles Leftist Progressives love so much to throw in the faces of people they don’t like. The Republican Party is not anti-Israel and probably passed the most pro-Israel platform since President Truman took to task every advisor who demanded the United States not recognize Israel as doing so would upset the Arab world and recognized Israel anyway. The fact that this recognition was immediately followed by the placing of an arms embargo against the United States selling arms to Israel is another matter. At least there was no great effort to prevent private citizens from shipping Israel weapons through circuitous channels or through well disguised and concealed manners. There is no denying that the United States has been a reliable and friendly partner to Israel even if the only manner was the use of their Security Council veto to prevent the crushing of Israel by international forces mostly powered through Arab oil monies and their threat of embargo of the precious fluid, especially to European nations so dependent upon the oil from the Middle East and Russia. This may become mitigated in the future as natural gas replaces oil in many power production facilities and Israel is sitting on two very large offshore reservoirs of natural gas. The production and sale of this will serve to lower electrical costs to Israelis while also being a profitable export resource with which to formulate new and better relations throughout Europe, providing the Europeans are willing and still capable of controlling such agreements without setting off riots in the streets. Sometimes we here at BTC believe that there is absolutely little if any future for Jews to live in Europe without being under constant threat. We pray often that those still residing in Europe escape before anything horrific will come to pass. We feel this way about all Jews as we are a family as well as a People and far more than a simple religion as too many Jews believe. Coming to Israel for an extended visit, one will see the reality and perhaps then make the fateful and correct choice to make Aliyah. Then again, there are those who will never come here as it is too Jewish and this we understand and regret. The truth is it is so much easier to be a good and religious Jew in Israel than almost, if not every other location on Earth.

 

Let us talk briefly about the difference between the Democrat and Republican Party Platforms. It was probably snuck into the Democrat platform recognizing Jerusalem as the capital city of Israel and that efforts towards moving the embassy there should be made, well, at least pretend to make moves and blame the State Department once more as a President Hillary Clinton would have signed the necessary waver to prevent such each year as has been the case since forevers. The Republican Platform recognizes Jerusalem as the Capital City of Israel and President Elect Trump has stated repeatedly his intent to move the Embassy to Jerusalem. He could use the Consulate as it was built as a secure facility with intent for it to eventually, should the President ever not sign the waver, be utilized as such. What is interesting is that President Trump in order to make the move for the United States Embassy to Jerusalem has simply to do nothing. That’s right; nothing. In order to prevent the move the President is required to sign a waiver twice each year stating that for reasons of international concerns and other consideration moving the Embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem is not possible and would be damaging. Below are the particulars from the legislation which has passed both houses of congress and been approved by President Clinton.

 

Sec. 7. Presidential Waiver.

(a) Waiver Authority.—
(1) Beginning on October 1, 1998, the president may suspend the limitations set forth in section 3(b) for a period of six months if he determines and reports to Congress in advance that such suspension is necessary to protect the national security interests of the United States.
(2) The President may suspend such limitations for an additional six month period at the end of any period during which the suspension is in effect under this subsections if the President determines and reports to Congress in advance of the additional suspension that the additional suspension is necessary to protect the national security interests of the United States.
(3) A report under paragraph (1) or (2) shall include—
(A) A statement of the interests affected by the limitation that the President seeks to suspend; and
(B) A discussion of the manner in which the limitation affects the interests.
(b) Applicability of Waiver to Availability of Funds.—
If the President exercises the authority set forth in subsection (a) in a fiscal year for the purpose set forth in such section 3(b) except to the extent that the limitation is suspended in such following fiscal year by reason of the exercise of the authority in subsection (a).

 

It will be readily obvious whether President Trump makes good on his promise as stated to AIPAC (American Israel Public Affairs Committee) where he stated the following: (video of entire speech can be found below)

But when the United States stands with Israel, the chances of peace really rise and rises exponentially. That’s what will happen when Donald Trump is president of the United States.
We will move the American embassy to the eternal capital of the Jewish people, Jerusalem.
And we will send a clear signal that there is no daylight between America and our most reliable ally, the state of Israel.

 


Donald Trump Full Speech at AIPAC
Policy Conference on March 21, 2016

 

The media and majority of American Jewish organizations with the most obvious exception being the ZOA (Zionist Organization of America) who stood almost alone in not rushing to denigrate Donald Trump as a racist anti-Semite nor to stand with Hillary Clinton completely ignoring the anti-Israel, anti-Zionist and anti-Semites who were a critical part of her team and have been advising and winning asseverations from her filled with encouragement and petition to carry on with the good work. These individuals are well known and include but are not limited to Huma Mahmood Abedin (father, mother and brother to the Muslim Brotherhood), Sidney Blumenthal, Max Blumenthal (Closest advisor on Israel with emphasis on Palestinian Arab support even at the cost of Israel) , Sandy Berger (Advised forcing Israel from all of Judea and Samaria to aid Abbas and make him stronger despite his also believing that any deal would place Hamas ruling the West Bank and Abbas in exile or dead), Anne Marie Slaughter (who advised e-mailing Hillary, “Suppose we launched a ‘Pledge for Palestine’ campaign,” and “Such a campaign among billionaires/multi-millionaires around the world would reflect a strong vote of confidence in the building of a Palestinian state.” And Hillary wrote back, ““I am very interested-pls flesh out. Thx.”), Thomas Pickering, George Soros and others with some listed here. Hillary Clinton was not alone in casting stones at Israel and religious Jews in general. The ADL (Anti-Defamation League) is a leader in pointing out anti-Semitism but also appears to be planning to go off the rails and defames conservatives falsely and defends anti-Semites rights in the courts, something many believe to be unconstructive. One such example was Stephen Bannon who was defended by Morton A. Klein, President of ZOA.

 

An article detailing the path we can expect from the ADL’s new president, Jonathan Greenblatt, is intending to take the organization making attempts to make it into a progressive movement which fully backs leftist causes even at the expense, or possibly because of their expense, against Israel. The supporting of anything progressive, leftist and uber-liberal has become Jewish canon which is their new interpretation of Tikkun Olam (Hebrew: תיקון עולם or תקון עולם’). The claim is it means “repair the world” and they interpret that as meaning to perfect governance and make the general welfare of all equalized and marrying various progressive ideas and ideals. They miss the other side which would have the Jews spread the word of Hashem through perfecting ourselves and living a life which is exemplary with success from serving Hashem and committing to all the Commandments. The idea is that one must first look within and repair the self and through this set an example others will desire to follow as Avraham did by digging wells for water wherever he traveled and by being a supportive and respectful neighbor while seldom speaking ill of any other person. He also made a great effort to arrange his affairs openly and make any land and other purchases with great care, truthfully, and before numerous witnesses laying out precise terms which were clearly defined and everything delineated as in the form of a legal contract. Repairing the world must start with repairing oneself and that alone often takes a lifetime and even then most require even longer. Judaism, non-Orthodox Judaism is or has lost its way depending on your congregation and Rabbi and the only cure we see is to make Aliyah and open your eyes and heart to Hashem and find what it is Hashem desires of you, nothing more and definitely nothing less.

 

What the last few elections have proven is that approximately three-quarters of American Jews consistently show signs of having lost their way and latched onto Progressive, liberal, leftist and even extreme leftist ideas and ideals. They have replaced their Torah with the Progressive Left’s propaganda swallowing its swill hook, line and sinker. They need to look back at the previous Progressive track record and compare it to today’s Progressive playbook and note the similarities and how deeply it is offensive to Torah and one might say also Hashem. The Progressives first advanced the concept of Eugenics and perfecting humanity through genetic selection. This was a belief held by American aviator Charles Lindbergh as well as by the author of “Looking Backward” where socialist author Edward Bellamy mused about “race purification.” Among the more notable progressives to embrace the practice, as listed by Discover the Networks.org, were the anarco-communist Emma Goldman, NAACP founder W.E.B. Dubois, author H.G. Wells, political scientist Harold Laski, socialist reformers Sidney and Beatrice Webb, biology instructor/atheist Edward Aveling, economist John Maynard Keynes, playwright George Bernard Shaw, World Wildlife Fund founder Julian Huxley, sex theorist Havelock Ellis, and Planned Parenthood founder Margaret Sanger. Move to today and the Progressive movement still supports Margaret Sanger’s project, Planned Parenthood. The institution of Planned Parenthood is still in the Eugenics movement and serving the Progressive aims of building a better world through selective breeding. According to Life News, Planned Parenthood, according to new research, shows the abortion business targets blacks and Hispanics by placing 79% of its abortion clinics in minority neighborhoods. Corroborative information can be found here, here, here, here, here, and here.

 

Finally, should one look objectively at the politics in Europe and the United States, they will see the greatest concentration of anti-Semites as well as anti-Zionists and anti-Israel feelings at the furthermost left end of the spectrum. This is a trend which has occurred before and is once again raising its ugly head and will soon rise to its feet and the enormity of this monster will become evident. Yes, yes, yes, we admit that there is a core at the hard right who are anti-Semitic and these include your KKK, neo-Nazis and supremacist groups (particularly white supremacists) and that they are a constant problem; but they have been checked and marginalized to the point it is the ACLU who represents their right to march, and even when they win in court the court of public opinion, often turns out five to ten or more times the numbers of counter-protesters than these groups can muster for their march. This has reached a point where they get their court order but seldom march and instead hold an ineffectual rally. The groups on the right, the David Dukes, are such lost causes that most conservatives ignore them hoping they will simply go away quietly and never darken the door again, and that is often the case. Will a David Duke grab a headline for supporting Trump? Of course he will but had he supported Hillary Clinton nobody would have heard his endorsement as it would somehow simply not make news as it would not serve the leftist cause. How many articles have you read about former Senator from West Virginian Robert Byrd and his joining the KKK which he honestly admitted was “the greatest mistake I ever made.” Had Donald Trump made a similar error in judgement does anyone honestly believe his campaign could have survived such a report? Of course he could not and his candidacy would have died on the spot, period, no questions and no explanation required, desired or ever to be reported upon, he would have disappeared, period. The far left Progressives are, as Hillary Clinton stated revealingly that she admired, the late nineteenth and early twentieth century Progressive movement. One must wonder if she realized that this movement believed that Hitler, Mussolini and the leaders of the Eugenics Movement were wonderful and were going to bring us a better world by removing the defective genes from the gene pool by sterilization and eventually extermination as it turned out. The evil, lesser, genetically inferior included any handicapped whether physical or mental, those deemed idiots or morons with lesser IQs, blacks, Hispanics, Jews, the Polish, Russians, Ukrainians and we are sure the list would continue until there was one single human left. The early Progressives were not the altruistic people Hillary likely believes they were as they believed in a new deity, science. Science was the answer to every problem and simply by having the government applies scientific principles, proven principles, to their laws and regulations then the world would work like a Swiss watch. Fortunately the world dodged a bullet and perhaps the United States will come and return to reason and collect what remains and build anew, build better and stronger America. And at the same time perhaps Israel can find the means to cut the umbilical cord and walk on her own two competent, strong and steady feet.

 

Giving Trump a present of an end of supportive aid to Israel would benefit both nations in the end and Israel needs more opportunities to hire people to produce her own weapons’ systems which requires her to walk free and independent. We can then work with the United States, the Americans, as equals with both sharing expertise and at the end of the day Israeli research is Israeli and there will be no begging for approval from the United States to sell a few weapons or radar or other system as Israel will have all Israeli designed and produced systems. Israel has a proven record in this field and would also be the perfect exit from President Obama’s funding trap where all monies must be spent in United States companies and Israel will get none of the aid money. If Israel is not permitted to use the aid for herself unless her companies are sold and become American and leave Israel releasing their workers, why should we continue with such an atrocious deal? Let President Trump have the few billion dollars to repay the Social Security funds in the “lockbox” which is a figment of the government’s imagination, who knew they were that advanced. Of course listen to any and all offers from President Trump when Netanyahu meets him and encourage the weapons storage in Israel be updated and restocked and thank him for all he desires to do and tell him that should he simply move the embassy to Jerusalem, our Capital City, that would be payment in full for all that each has done. Stress we are better together by choice than tied at the money belt as that makes one the beggar and the other the owner and Israelis are demanding more from our government and the governance than having us suckle at the American foreign policy trough. Further, making it on our own will also remove the fear and pressures from the State Department as they will no longer have an override on anything as Israel will have paid her own way and in full. Such an arrangement will prove healthier for both nations, so thanks but no thanks to the money and maybe that will free America from also paying the Arab world equal amounts to every state. The example Israel sets could change the Middle East remarkably as Israel will truly be a free nation owing nobody. That is freedom.
