Jewish Leftists and Israel

 

The first thing we must delineate is the definition of Leftist as versus left or liberals. The Leftists are a political entity of their own made up of many different factions. Some propose violent solutions such as a href=https://www.facebook.com/antiFaUSA/ target=blank>AntiFa while some are Communists and still others are Fascists. The Jewish Leftists believe they are following the ancient Jewish directive of Tikkun Olam (Hebrew: תיקון עולם‎ literally translates as “repair of the world”) and making the world a better place by repairing the ills of their society. Most of their efforts are often in the areas of human rights and the rights of minorities. What they miss in their efforts is that a Jew performs Tikkun Olam when they improve their own selves first and make themselves into better people. They are to first seek inward improvements and a closer following of Torah and performing of mitzvahs (Hebrew מִצְוָה‎, meaning “commandment”), before diving into the external world. The problem is the same as with all too many people crusading to save the world from its evils where they find it far less personally challenging or disruptive to go seeking splinters in other people’s or group’s eyes than to address the log sticking out from their eye. If all the good-intending people of the world would expend their energies improving their own self, making their lives an example for others, then we would likely have made far better and more productive progress in making the world more gracious.

 

The Leftist Jews once adored Israel and touted its many virtues. They proudly extolled the medical marvels that came from Israel, the advances in food production in such areas as irrigation techniques and hybrid plants including cherry tomatoes and crops which grow with less water or permit the use of a mix of seawater and fresh that withstand the salt and other contaminants. Then there are the high tech fields and the advances in hardware and especially software and applications, a sort of repetition there. There have been numerous Apps for cell phones and other digital devices produced in Israel plus security software where Israel is a world leader as well as much of the development of cellphones and the systems which support them. These developments and others were oft the center of conversation between Leftist Jews and anybody who would listen even to the point of preaching to the choir. But somewhere in the last twenty years, things have changed and Israel has become an embarrassment for the Jewish Leftists. Israel committed a horrible crime, as they became a success. Israel has gone from the little nation challenged by giant foes in lands that were vast by comparison to the nation which can withstand anything threatening them and now are cast as the eight-hundred pound gorilla in the Middle East. Truth be told, Israel is probably more vulnerable presently than she has been since her founding in 1948 and those threats are only increasing in magnitude.

 

The modern Jewish Leftist now believes that Israel is a beast which must be contained and restricted within a cage plus declawed with having her fangs dulled if not pulled completely. Israel has committed the sin of actually defending herself and liberating the area which Jordan had illegally occupied and, despite being rebuffed by every nation except Pakistan and Britain, attempted to annex these Israeli lands into Jordan. Israel also liberated lands held illegally by Egypt, namely Gaza which Israel surrendered control to the Palestinian Authority (PA), the reconfigured Palestinian Liberation Organization terror group (PLO) made anew such that there could be an entity presumably free from any terrorist activities with which the world could deal to find a peace between the Arabs and Israelis. Hamas took over these lands in a coup where much blood was spilled in an Arab on Arab brief but bloody war. With Hamas now in control of Gaza ruling as the governing authority largely since the coup, one might refer to Gaza as Hamastan, a terror nation bent on the immediate destruction of Israel followed by the complete eradication of every Jew on Earth. The new Jewish Leftists believe that Israel has mistreated Hamas by starting wars where far more Gazan civilians died than did Israeli civilians and this imbalance points to the conceived fact that there must be something wrong that Israel committed as the stronger power. Yes, you read that correctly. The Jewish Leftist, like some other leftists, believes the stronger nation must suffer similar casualties otherwise; they must have misused their advantages in military strength and unfairly caused casualties on the other side. This belief leads to demands for investigations to find which commanders gave the orders to murder so many innocents.

 

When investigations cannot find any such person, these Jewish Leftists scream cover-up. Even when the United Nations investigates one of these alleged criminal battles, in particular Jenin, they found the Arab claims of mass numbers murdered to be false. The most interesting fact about Jenin is that the report from Secretary General Kofi Anon has been erased from the United Nations site or hidden away such that every link, including the one in the first paragraph of this UN Report, sent people to a “This Page Cannot be Found” error message. Another claim was that the town, city of Jenin had been completely destroyed and this was made largely by the media seeking to place Israel in a bad light. The media used graphic pictures (see below) taken from one particular end of the refugee camp where the battle ensued, and took similar shots which give the appearance that much of the city may have been damaged greatly. The truth is in the second picture, an aerial view (see second picture) which details the damage from the entirety of the city of Jenin to the actual area of the camp to the actual battlefield where there was the appearance of great carnage. The reality is the complete destruction of Jenin, as reported in the media with horrific pictures, was actually the leveling of an area by local tank fire, not aerial blanket style bombing as intimated, of merely one hundred meter sided square of the refugee camp. Many of the civilians caught there were used as bait often tied up in their homes so the IDF troops were required to enter to free them and then the house was detonated by the terrorists. This practice also added to the destruction.

Jenin Battle Map and the Truth

Jenin Battle Map and the Truth

 

The Jewish Leftists do not care about the truth when the stories told by propagandists are so much more horrifying. Many belong or contribute to a litany of NGO’s which fight the fight against the “Israel Lobby” or “Jewish Lobby” which is credited with doing such evil in the name of Israel. AIPAC (The American Israel Public Affairs Committee) is widely regarded as the most powerful foreign-policy lobby in Washington D.C. and is painted as the most nefarious and underhanded group of lobbyists. Just about every negative stereotype imaginable is used against AIPAC. Our favorite claim is that AIPAC hides their true mission of support for Israel behind the screen of protecting those targeted or injured by anti-Semitism. AIPAC’s own name, The American Israel Public Affairs Committee, speaks for itself right up front. Their mission is to retain as strong a link of friendship and similar goals between the United States and Israel. Note the order of the names, they place American first with Israel a close second. They have an ally in the ZOA (Zionist Organization of America) who fight against all anti-Semitism including the defamation of Israel. Against these two groups there is a litany of NGO’s fighting against Israel and these are a list of some of these groups run by Jews, there are some we might not know of or have omitted by accident, we would not want to upset these Jews against Israel groups. >JVP (Jewish Voice for Peace) will lead our group of names followed by J-Street whose name is a spoof of the location of AIPAC and other lobbying groups along K Street in Washington D.C. around the Dupont Circle area. If Not Now is another group which has drank the Israeli Occupation Kool-Aid along with a broken sense of history and the truth having an obvious ignorance when it comes to the San Remo Conference which codified the Balfour Declaration and was then incorporated into the Treaty of Sèvres making Israel a fact decided long before World War II or even the rise of the Nazis to power. There are many more groups which include New Israel Fund which acts as a clearing house sending funds from donations on to other NGO’s many of which are virulently anti-Israel and/or anti-Zionist plus the top groups listed by the ADL as being against Israel which included Act Now to Stop War and End Racism (ANSWER), American Muslims for Palestine, CODEPINK: Women for Peace, Friends of Sabeel-North America, If Americans Knew/Council for the National Interest, Jewish Voice for Peace (mentioned above), Muslim Public Affairs Council, Neturei Karta (a Haredi Orthodox sect which believes that Israel must await the coming of the Messiah to establish itself), Students for Justice in Palestine (SJP) and US Campaign to End the Israeli Occupation.

 

Many of these groups have large, if not predominant, Jewish membership and funding. There have been editorials which have claimed that the majority of American Jews either have negative feelings politically or ambivalent feelings politically about the direction Israel, both the society and the government, are headed. The Pew Research Group did an excellent article with graphs and other visuals depicting the differences between American Jews and Israeli Jews and what each find most important and what are the greatest challenges they perceive. The distance between the two groups and their perception of Israel are quite astonishing. Having resided in Israel for approaching half a decade, we can speak that we have found a large difference between the English speaking Jews we meet and the Jews we knew back in the United States. The Jews in Israel are equally upset with the lack of effort to accomplish what they desire each with their own government. Israelis are becoming more conservative and are very satisfied that President Trump won over Hillary Clinton and are relieved that Barack Obama is gone. American Jews have a completely the opposite view, they are gob-smacked that Hillary Clinton lost and that was the most traumatic event in their lives and they miss President Obama. Moment Magazine has an exhaustive article titled “The Growing Gap Between Israel And American Jews” which has interviews on the subject with interviews by Sarah Breger, Marilyn Cooper, George E. Johnson, Sala Levin and Ellen Wexler of the following individuals Elliott Abrams, Michael Barnett, Ethan Bronner, Steven M. Cohen, Alan Cooperman, Jonathan Dekel-Chen, Hasia Diner, Seth Farber, Yaron Gamburg, Susie Gelman, Lisa Goldman, Daniel Gordis, Yossi Klein Halevi, Samuel Heilman, Martin Kramer, Michael A. Meyer, Aaron David Miller, Marilyn Safir, Jonathan Sarna, Julie Schonfeld, Ofira Seliktar, Anita Shapira, Abraham D. Sofaer, Jay M. Stanton, Dov Waxman, Dov Zakheim and Neta Ziv. It is that growing gap which grows more definitive and stark as you look towards the youth.

 

That does not bode well and will bring about an intensely horrifying unintended consequence, growing anti-Semitism. Some of those who will fuel the fires of this coming anti-Semitism will be many of the disenchanted young Jews who see their religion as the problem with things that went wrong actually due to politics. What they will see is that many of the Jews from the older generation were too hooked into the political system and they will demand the opposite approach, that Jews avoid politics entirely. As one Jew turns against the other, non-Jews will wonder why it would be wrong to blame Jews when the Jews do such themselves. They will see the Jewish community filled with infighting. This will make the Jews appear weak and no longer organized making them vulnerable. If political and economic problems should arise in the United States, the old canards of the Jew controlled politics, lawyers, judges, banking, media, entertainment, music and you name it with a special problem with Jews as professors in academia. The backlash and run to blame the Jews will finally arrive in the United States and gain traction. This renewed hate for the Jews blaming them for the problems will not be from the right as we have always been told to fear. This time it will come from the leftists including some Jews who became so disenchanted that they no longer think of themselves as Jewish. They will learn eventually that once a Jew, always a Jew for up to three or even four generations. This will result in checking registers of deaths, births and other legal papers of grand parents and great grand parents seeking proof they were Jews and once found, then the entire family is considered contaminated and will be hunted down. This is what happened in Nazi Germany and there were a number of people, of families who had no idea that they were Jewish by genealogy. Read the comments on the Internet and realize that the anti-Semitism has been slowly rising and that movement is gaining speed. To the Jews who will be desperate for a place to which to run when the threats grow close, where are you going to go? Here is a little hint, Europeans will close their doors, the Muslim world will close their doors and about the only nation who will greet you with open arms will be Israel. Please, before coming to Israel, please try and free yourself from the political history which you will carry whether you know it or not. Effort to alter your political urgings will be required if Israel herself is to survive. Many Jews desire Israel to be the Lite America Brand but do not realize that a multicultural society would be the death of Israel and the only thing which keeps Israel strong is an underlying Judaism. Many will claim that they do not really identify as being a Jew despite living in Israel. That is next to impossible for anyone with even a smattering of Jewish knowledge. The one promise that Hashem gave us was that the land would bloom only for us, and that has been the case. Israel often to us feels as if the land itself loves the Jewish People and the majority of them love the land back as well as their guardian, Hashem. The IDF is but his right arm but once you come to Israel you will believe in miracles as they will be happening all around you and to, or should we say for, you as well.

J’accuse and Your Guilt is Sealed

 

The new left is quite different from the liberals who used to make up the left. The new left is activist and refuses to permit people to oppose their dictums. Your religious beliefs are inconsequential in the world they are preparing for the future. Your political leanings must be corrected until you yield to their beliefs. Nothing can be permitted in opposition. Change has become the order of their day, their night and any time they spend awake. There can be no higher calling than the transition of society’s norms to match their beliefs. What is wonderful is how accepting these leftists can be when you talk their talk and walk their walk. They have their definition of a wonderful new age where everybody is completely equal. There will be no difference in treatment between men and women because gender, sexual is a word which they have deemed offensive so we cannot use such here, identity at birth is irrelevant to them as they can find one male and one female who are equal at any task. Power lifting, take the women’s world heavyweight record holder and some man who has never pressed weights in his life and has a figure so slight that he hardly seems to have muscles at all, the woman can out lift him so proof positive. Running, they can find a woman who is faster than some man. Whatever you can find and there is some pairing of a particular woman and a particular man where the woman is equal or superior. Tennis has already been established, as women are superior after Billie Jean King defeated Bobby Riggs. Let us look at some of the results of these policies.

 

This was sufficient proof of equality to permit women into combat units. Never mind that some of the enemies they may face believe that women captured on a battlefield are to be used for the pleasuring the capturing troops as their reward for such a prize. These enemies know that their brutalizing of their enemies’ women is a particular insult which is why they will use captured women in propaganda which proves their superiority over the enemy which is incapable of protecting their delicate flowers, their women. Many of the developed world, where these leftists run unchecked, are incapable of understanding that there are those in the world whose societies differ greatly from the developed world. These societies are less advanced and less sophisticated in their moral principles holding on to mores discarded by the developed world anywhere from a century to millennia ago. Acts which they believe to be normal practice and acceptable as a means of proving their superiority using their beliefs that men are superior to women and because of this superiority then a brave and strong man would protect a woman at all costs and capturing and debasing an enemies women was a measure of dominance.

 

Many soldiers in the developed world’s armies know this and, because of their knowledge, they will go to extremes to prevent any woman in their charge from being taken by the enemy, even at the cost of their own lives. Despite evidence presented proving this danger would be real, the leftists demanded that women be permitted to serve in combat units. But this posed an additional problem; the women who desired to serve in the combat units were largely incapable of meeting the physical requirements. The leftists were there with the solution, a lesser degree of physical ability with tests adjusted for, wait for it, gender be used where women only be required to perform at approximately three-quarters that of their male counterparts. Other than the different physical requirements, men and women are completely equally capable of performing the necessary requirements for combat arms units.

 

Some Marines were once asked what misgivings they had with women serving in combat units and universally they had two main problem areas. The first was the insensitive treatment, the outright vile treatment they would receive if captured which would place their unit in jeopardy as this would require their being overly protective of any woman or women in their unit even to the point that some said they might consider shooting their female compatriots rather than allow them be captured. These interviews disappeared from records within weeks of their being reported. Their other complaint was they really would prefer that another male Marine be expected to carry them from the field of battle when injured as the women would likely struggle carrying a two-hundred-fifty pound Marine who was a full foot taller than the female soldier. This had been a proven problem in training to the point that the women were only required to carry another woman in such exercises and if no woman was present, then the slightest and shortest male soldier would be their victim to carry.

 

But this demands that all inequalities be ignored because if you ignore differences and compensate for them making that the norm, then differences really no longer exist. Simply pretend that there is no difference and then no difference is noted. That makes all differences simply vanish as they have been deleted from reality. This has been carried over to marriage such that the gender of the people being joined in marriage no longer matter. Marriage can be between a man and a woman, but where is the fun in that. Marriage can also be between a man and a man or a woman and another woman, viva the lack of difference. Now there is another new rule for society, everyone must treat same gender partners in a marriage exactly the same as they would a traditional married couple. There must be no differentiating or else. So, if you are a baker, one of about fifty in a city, and you are known to be a religious person, a very religious person, then there will at some point be a same gender couple who will seek out your bakery demanding that you make their wedding cake. Should you refuse, then you are in for a heap load of trouble. You will be sued and driven out of business rather than simply finding another baker who would accept your business and happily bake your cake. You see, it is a matter of principle that everybody must accept your choice in marriage and those who refuse on religious grounds, especially on religious grounds, must be driven from the public square.

 

Even in the workplace, if there is a person where one member of a same gender couple is employed, then there is a dynamic which at some point is almost guaranteed to erupt with the slightest provocation, even unintentional provocations. The horrible side to this is that no provocation is actually required, just the individual believing there had been a provocation. What is really unique about same gender marriage currently in society is that it is the particular area of greatest sensitivity. Should the member of a same gender marriage feel they have had their special relations insulted and bring charges that they have been slighted over their relations, then the accused is guilty. The accusation in and of itself is sufficient proof of commission of the crime and the accused is basically finished and will forever carry the stigma of being an insensitive boor to be scorned by all. This is further guaranteed by those who will be charged with doing the investigation. The EEOC officer likely has their degree in gender studies or other equally prestigious area of social studies. They are trained to be capable of feeling the slightest tremor or disturbance in the polite requirements of their highly sensitized abilities. Many of them are over-zealous just chomping at the bit to find some inequality to level, some wrong to right, some offended person to defend, some reason to champion a cause and make a difference. Never mind that often that difference has a person who becomes the victim, but these victims deserve being victimized, as they fell on the wrong side of the new social constructs. Wait until you hear of some who choose to be gender free.

 

Things were so very different back at the front end of the new age when equality actually meant accepting one another for the person we were and trying not to be judgmental. This was during that long ago age of flower power and being groovy and dropping in or dropping out which often could mean the same thing. Back then there was a revolution in society where the past was to simply be left in the dust, the dustbin of history and a whole new world was going to be replacing the old where people were judged by their character, ability, and quality of their performance, their work and differences were to be respected. People were to be permitted their differences and if one felt uncomfortable with your lifestyle, then as long as they were polite and treated you with respect, then you were to respect their beliefs and not demand they approve of you just as they were not to expect you to reform to their beliefs. It was all about respecting differences and everyone living their life by their rules and allowing others to do the same. Life has changed and the world is now about forcing everyone to believe the true and enlightened path of leftist dogma. We went from no such thing as a set dogma and everybody was allowed to make their own rules for their life and nobody’s rules were any better, more respectable or more correct than anyone else’s rules and that was that to strict dogma demanding complete compliance dictated by the extreme left. Now you must be in with same gender marriage, open relationships and every last iota of the leftist menagerie of whatever is their latest decision modern society must now embrace. It is difficult to keep up with some of the changes society has taken and the speed of these constant demands which come at us from every corner.

 

Many people, far more than the leftists are willing to accept, are growing tired of their holier than thou preaching about how everyone is supposed to think and what we are to cherish and what is acceptable and what is not. Despite the overwhelming social media offensive which claims the President Trump was placed into the Oval Office by no less than the devil himself, or was a Russian President Putin, and is there a difference as social media says there is no diff, but the people who voted for Trump were not all people who actually thought he was the most wonderful choice possible, but they definitely knew he was not going to be another leftist, and that was all that mattered. There are a number of Republicans who have misjudged the anger running through the American electorate and others who have seen it for what it is and decided to retire and let somebody the people can believe in to hopefully replace them. Now for the interesting thing which deserves its own paragraph.

 

The Democrat Party will survive their plunge into the farthest left swimming pool they could find and then swimming to the left end of the pool. They truly believe in what they are representing, and good for them. They will pay the price for their plunge to extremism and will recover and return to just being the excessively liberal party. The Republican Party is a completely different matter. Should their mainstream old school leadership insist on trying to play Democrat lite, then the party will die, as it should. They have a choice that they need to make, either change their leadership and actually stand for something or become irrelevant. Donald Trump is just a symptom of a very disgruntled portion of American society who is sick and tired with being ignored by both parties. They are going to either be given control of the Republican Party or they will declare a new party and the Republicans will go the way of the Whig Party, the party they replaced when the Whigs refused to take a strong stand on slavery. There is no singular item which will spell the end of the Republican Party but the lack of ability to repeal Obamacare, their inability to address and pass meaningful tax reform, their inability to address illegal immigration, their inability to deliver all the items they had promised if only they were given the White House and both houses of Congress, they did not demand a supermajority, which the people granted them, their inability to put the brakes on John McCain and impress vote control of their party members as the Democrat Party does as simple as for the asking, their inability to be honest with their supporters is what will bring them to an end. There are a great number of people who are very angry and their distress is not going to wane, their determination will not be denied, and their fervor will spread as more people wake to the fact that the United States is in distress and unless things are turned around and changes, basic and desperate changes, are made and made immediately, within the Trump four years, then all will be lost.

 

United States has a Fever

 

United States debt went from five-trillion dollars in 2000 to twenty-trillion dollars by the end of 2017, which is quadrupled. George W. Bush doubled it in his eight years; and, just not to be outdone, Barack Obama redoubled the debt in his eight years. There is a President which should be emulated for his absolute intolerance of the United States being a debtor nation. He did not settle for simply balancing the budget with accounting gimmicks or actually balancing it for a year or two or showing a small surplus which would evaporate all but immediately. This President paid off the entire debt and on January 8, 1835, at a gathering of the so-called important people in Washington, it was announced that President Andrew Jackson had fulfilled his campaign promise and the entire national debt was paid in full. His methods may have been somewhat dubious but his desired aim was admirable. To get the current debt is not something which could be vanquished by any single President and will take the full attention and efforts of an extensive number of administrations but is something the people are going to demand Washington change as their economy starts to be affected as the debt causes financial ruin and threatens to destroy the United States. Have you ever wonder why savings accounts earn almost no interest? The debt is the answer. The interest rates are being kept artificially low so the debt will not destroy the United States. Should the interest rates rise, then the payment on the interest would accordingly rise. Currently the United States has barely managed to keep up with the payments at their current level. Double the interest rate to close to five percent and the interest payments would double. Redouble them to around nine percent, about half of where they were under President Jimmy Carter, and the interest payment would take over almost half or more of the Federal budget at current levels and force the United States to cut funding for programs and halve the military. Should they rise beyond that, well, let us hope that never becomes the new reality. The time has come in the United States to make balanced budgets and paying off principle and not merely the interest of the debt a primary concern. When a political party and politicians start speaking about this, we will know that just possibly the United States may be starting to heal itself because it is currently quite ill and has a disease which causes it to bleed the people’s financial future.

Growing Threat to Judaism in America

 

Charlottesville rioting gave cover for headlines blaming the alt-Right for all the hatreds in the United States. They allowed announcements declaring the hatred of Jews and Blacks as well as other minorities of the Nazis, the Ku Klux Klan and the White Supremacists. These hate groups got coverage which was all aghast that these people were permitted to slide out from the slimy regions under rocks and march in the daylight, presumably the worst example of American allowance of free speech and an excellent argument for limitations on free speech. The limits are now demanded on free speech currently is limited to hate speech. There are demands that all hate speech by these types of right wing groups be made illegal and enforced exclusively against the alt-right. This became so powerful a call that a free speech rally in Boston where there were no alt-right groups or speakers as actually the police cordon around the organizers prevented attendees leaving at most two or three dozen people at the rally surrounded by hundreds of Boston Police holding close to thirty to forty thousand counter-protesters who were reputedly screaming epithets, threats and obscenities while throwing bottles with some containing urine as well as rocks and other objects at the police, none had an arm like former Denver Bronco quarterback John Elway thus were unable to throw any object two-thirds the length of a football field’s distance to hit the rally organizers and the few attendees who arrived early enough to attend before the police cordoned off the area from counter-protesters and attendees alike. Unlike Charlottesville, the Boston rally for free speech had no hate speech or alt-right speakers, but that does not matter to the far left as they knew there had to be hatred there, conservatives were claimed to have been invited.

 

This brings us to the growing threat to Judaism in America and the reason it is not the alt-right. The reason it is not the alt-right is because they are such a small segment and already so opposed by even the political middle and even apolitical people who are not aligned with either part or side of the political spectrum. Even the people who do not vote and remain relatively clueless and uninformed know enough to reject anything attached to Nazis, the Ku Klux Klan and the White Supremacists. These people could not gain a following no matter how much effort they put forth because as soon as they would be unmasked for who they were, anybody fooled into joining them would walk away cautiously likely praying they did not get injured by the fanatics they were fleeing. That is the lack of acceptability of the alt-right and nobody regarded with even a modicum of respect would join those outcasts. The threat to Judaism in America comes from another group and through another channel which is often called post-Zionism.

 

The new anti-Semitism does not wear their hatred as an armband and exclaim proudly their hatred for the Jews. No, they wear their Jew hatred wrapped cozily in a righteous cause. The new anti-Semite is out to save the victims or defending the righteous and hold many concepts and ideals that many Jews hold themselves. You see the new anti-Semite is a Progressive and as a Progressive they are allied with the left-leaning Jews and that makes the Jews slow to condemn or even recognize these destructive haters. Most of the American Jewish communities outside the Orthodoxy have replaced the Torah and Jewish principles with those of the leftist Progressive movement. They have redefined Tikkun Olam as “save the world” by which they mean perfect the world by leftist standards and not improve one’s self and use their own actions as an example of how one should act. For these Progressive Jews, Tikkun Olam means removing all those considered not to be part of the Progressive solutions and all the while forgiving fellow Progressives of all sins no matter how repugnant they are to Judaism. One of the Capital Offences in Progressivism is love of Israel or Zionism. This forces the Jew to choose between being a good Progressive and being a supporter of Israel. For the Progressive, loving Israel means you now serve two masters and the idea of dual loyalty by the Jew with one loyalty, the forbidden loyalty, being Israel is in and of itself anti-Semitism. The Progressive Jew though views this as only natural and thus they place the Progressive cause before their love of Israel and their fellow Jews. This is part of being a Progressive, the hatred of Israel as a cruel and hateful oppressor of the downtrodden Arabs known as ‘Palestinians.’

 

Following the Progressive code requires the adoption of the Islamic view of Israel as the usurper and also requires that one recognize that all criticism of Islam is Islamophobia and another form of white suppression. This was much of why the Anti-Defamation League (ADL) has rewritten their bylaws and no longer protects Judaism or Jews first but rather fight all hatreds other than anti-Semitism, except when it is purported by White Supremacists, the KKK and Nazis. The Islamic hatred of Jews, as long as it is couched in anti-Israelism or anti-Zionism, both of which are against colonialism, white privilege and oppression of helpless Arab victims, is totally understandable and totally natural reaction to the crimes committed by the Israelis. This is what was behind the ADL’s lukewarm response where they requested confirmation of what the Northern California Imam meant when he recently called for the murder of Jews. When he redefined his initial wording which included all Jews and narrowed the target to those Jews whose support for causes not Progressive such as Israel or those Jews living in the ever so evil state of Israel all was immediately forgiven. This was the prime example of the Progressive Post-Zionist leftist Jew in America. Progressivism is good and Israel is evil.

 

This Progressive anti-Semitism has a second and more pernicious angle of blind and total support for everything Islam. This includes the Islamic desire for the annihilation of the Jewish People. Of course, this desire is wrapped within a cocoon of anti-Zionism and anti-Israelism, two of the fundamental leftist positions. American Jews have an ability in great reserves for complete and total blinding self-delusion. They can watch as an Imam declares total war against Jews and Judaism and hear only that the desire is to remove the Israeli cities in Judea and Samaria because these Jews are on Holy Arab Islamic Lands, are sitting on a Waqf (see below). The fact that Mahmoud Abbas has claimed openly that all of Israel is a sacred Waqf and that Islam must reassert total control of all the land and exterminate the Jew presence means nothing to the leftists and thus the American Jew denies this ever occurred. These American Jews have on blinders which restrict their vision to just a narrow definition of what they are shown and to accepting any definition no matter how absurd. But their delusions go far deeper.

 

.

 

The Progressive American Jews have forsaken Torah replacing it with the Progressive calls for social justice, income equality, socialist principles, single payer healthcare and the platforms of the Democrat and Green Parties. They are oblivious to everything around them which screams hatred for Jews and their religion, their country and their survival. Whenever some sound disparaging Jews does finally reach their inner ear and be received by their brains, they interpret Jews to mean those crazed Orthodox Jews who keep the old ways wearing Tzitzit hanging off their beltline, Yarmulkes on their heads, curls of Payot framing their faces, the Black hat and the entire religious uniform, certainly not them as they are enlightened, assimilated Jews; why they are almost Christians with slightly different holidays. These are the modern American Jew who has a good high-paying job, respected in his community by his non-Jewish associates, has forgotten his roots, is all about being a good Progressive leftist American, has no desire to ever live in Eretz Yisroel, believes the customs of his Orthodox brethren are backward, modifies Torah as Moses had no idea of society today, and follows the leftist dogma as if it were the word of Hashem. These Jews value the good pats on the head they receive from their fellow leftists, including those who would prefer to see them gone be it by expulsion, or worse, annihilation. To many leftists the Jews themselves by the fact that they are Jews are a threat to them and to their Progressivism. They view every Jew as a ticking time-bomb who can revert to Torah and realize the errors they were making and then they would become a formidable force against their leftist goals. This is something which has happened all too often to the Jewish People as whenever the Jews have become complacent and disavowed their heritage, their heritage comes back full force and is thrust upon them. This was the case in Persia before Haman thrust the Jew back into the Israelites who remained in Persia and did not return to the Holy Lands. It happened with the Greek occupation until a small band, the Maccabees, rose up to liberate them from Greek rule, cleanse the Temple and bring many of their brothers and sisters back within the fold to confess their acts against Torah and against Hashem. But there are two recent times this has occurred and one definitely applies to the American Jews who have lost their way.

What is sad is this has been the view of the Jews before in Wiemar Germany and the early Soviet Union. It is in these histories we can divine what the future holds for these Jews. German anti-Semitism brought disaster through the Shoah, the Holocaust. The initial beginnings of the National Socialist German Workers’ Party (Nazi Party) began, obviously, in Germany as did the initial discussions which led to the founding of the Communist Party though the founders of Communism were forced to flee and much of their early work was performed in England. The origins of the Nazi Party emerged from the German nationalist, racist, and populist Freikorps, a paramilitary culture, which fought against the Communist Party. The Communists were expelled from nation after nation finally finding their home in Russia where they formed the United Soviet Socialist Republic (USSR) or Soviet Union. The National Socialists, Nazis, were at odds with the Internationalist Socialists, Communists, and would fight one against the other during World War II just as they had when both were ascendant in the political struggles in post World War I Germany. Where many a political scientist will place the Nazis as right wing and the Communists as left wing, we find that measure to be a false difference. We prefer the more descriptive description where left is replaced by Statist or Socialist and Progressive where the state is seen as supreme in power and the right is replaced by Individualist or Conservative Libertarian. This places the Communist and the Nazi both at the left end as both believe in empowering the government over the governed (see below). Both fear the Jews because the Jew gave birth to the concept of man made in the image of the divine and thus a worthy and regal identity unto itself which required no ruler other than Hashem to guide them. This idea of the enlightened individual is an anathema to the Statist Progressive Leftist.

 

Political Spectrum Taught Versus Actual

 

Both the Nazis and the Communists took over countries in transition and where Jews were part of the national culture. The Jews in Germany were far more advanced than their cousins in Russia during the Soviet Revolution. Further, the Nazis took power through political infighting and maneuvering to attain power and then using that power to consolidate their power while the Communists simply deposed the standing governance and replaced it with their own powers. Both the Nazi and the Communists evolved centralized power and removed all rights and freedoms from their respective nations. The Nazis came to power partly on anti-Semitism where they blamed Jews for the problems Germany was facing. The Communists came to power with some Jews, such as Trotsky, in high regard and high places but that mood soon changed so much so that Trotsky was hunted down and executed for his perceived crimes. So, soon after taking power, both Communists and Nazis did turn on their Jews taking any wealth or weapons they found. They both placed their Jews in camps from which the vast majorities were not expected to survive. Yet, despite all the signs, in both instanced the Jews mostly never saw what was coming. Many a historian has claimed their belief was that they were an integral part of the German society and had been accepted. That is largely the view in Europe again today. Both Communists and Nazis blamed the Jews when things grew more vital of a threat to their ruling. This led most to turn Jews over for reward rather than risk the life of one’s entire family for hiding them. Those few who remain true to their religious teachings and chose to be their brothers’ keepers despite the risk are today immortalized enshrined at Yad Vashem, the memorial to those who perished and the righteous amongst the nations who preserved what souls they were able.

 

Where the Nazis came to power preaching hatred for the Jews, during the Communist revolution, there were Jews fighting with those trying to take power as well as on the other side. Despite the Jews supporting the revolution, the Communists blamed them of usury which was the presumed cause for the economic hardships. This brings both sides back in lock-step with one another persecuting the Jew as the enemy who was responsible for the downturn in the economy and the imprisonment of the mentally and physically disadvantaged along with others considered as undesirables. This included the Roma (Gypsies), Baltic Christians, Polish, and for the Soviets it was the Nazis and for the Nazis it was the Soviets as well as the Jews. The camps in the USSR were the gulags and the Jews were placed largely in Siberia which was tantamount to a death sentence. The Nazis sent their Jews to Concentration Camps where they were overworked, underfed, and treated harshly if not murdered outright. The Jews in the USSR believed that their assistance in the Communist Revolution would give at least those Jews protection. The murder of Trotsky in Mexico by Soviet agents put that notion to rest. The Jews were shipped off to Siberia work camps where people were written off by the government, as they were not expected to survive, let alone ever leave.

 

The American Progressive leftist Jews believe that they are going to play a central role in the restructuring of America. Perhaps initially, they will be utilized for their skills and knowledge assisting in making things function well. In time, there will come a point where the economy begins to falter and the problems will be traced back to the Jews. The rest is a story which has played out over and over and over again throughout history, especially Jewish history. Step one is always the collect the weapons, especially from the Jews. Then come the restriction against Jews working in certain professions, no government positions, no working towards any war effort, educating the youth cannot be permitted and on it goes. Then follows the travel restrictions and finally the shipping from the ghettoes to the camps where anything can be committed against them for the process has dehumanized the Jew. That is one idea from history which has never lost its attraction, the dehumanizing of the Jew. Christians made out the Jews were guilty of the original sin of deicide, the murder of G-d. The Muslims simply stated that the Jew was the embodiment of the stubborn who resisted the true faith and were the initial deceivers who had written the devil’s version of the Quran and celebrated their connection with hell and the black arts. These arts were considered capable of the destruction of the wonderful civilization which was to be built once Islam ruled the world. Of course that meant that such time as the Muslim end time were to arrive, first the Muslims must fight and vanquish the Jews. This is made far more difficult the longer Israel exists and the stronger Israel grows. That is why many Muslims believe that the Quran instructs them in Sahih Muslim Book 041, Hadith number 6985, which became part of the Charter of Hamas, states the following:

 

The Day of Judgement will not come about until Muslims fight the Jews, when the Jew will hide behind stones and trees. The stones and trees will say O Muslims, O Abdullah, there is a Jew behind me, come and kill him. Only the Gharqad tree would not do that because it is one of the trees of the Jews.

The real problem in Israel is that it was once part of the Ottoman Empire and the Caliphate before that and as such must never be permitted to leave the rule of Israel. Many people point to Spain as proof that this is not an article of faith in Islam as much of Spain used to part of Islam. Should one listen to numerous sermons of Imams they will hear of calls for the reconquest of Andalusia, the Islamic name given to the areas of Spain they had conquered. These pale when compared to the true end result which Islam, in the current dominant form which has the violent Medina verses to abrogate the less violent verses in the Mecca Quranic writings. This has led to such ideologies as those posed by the Wahabis, Muslim Brotherhood, al-Qaeda, Islamic State, Saudi Arabia with the Gulf States, Turkey’s President Erdoğan and the Mullahs of Iran where their particular version of the Quran and Islamic history eventually will result in a world conquered and subjugated only to be forced to convert to Islam or die. As has been seen from the Islamic State’s horrific videos posted into the Internet, the concept of convert or die is very much alive with them as is the concept that if your knowledge of Islam differs from theirs you are an apostate to be murdered on the spot.

 

Islam still need unify themselves behind a single ideology and where the Muslim Brotherhood spawned al-Qaeda from which ISIS was born which became the Islamic State, each of these variations of Islam do not match perfectly and would this end up fighting against each other for supremacy and then would face the Wahabis for the honor of being the truest form of Sunni Islam to struggle against Iran and their leadership of Shiite Islam. In the meantime, each group or faction of Islam would also demand that their version of Islam is the correct version. Currently, the war for control over the soul of Islam is being waged in Syria where Turkey’s President Erdoğan announced to be at war the Islamic State while actually fighting the Kurds who simply desire to form their own nation of Kurdistan and live in peace, a concept found to be unacceptable in the Middle East and North Africa (MENA). Then there are the Shiite forces simply fighting everybody else including the Kurds. These forces include Iranians, Bashir al-Assad Alawite militias and the remnants of the Syrian Army plus Hezballah from Lebanon and IRGC (Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps) troops from Iran all backed by Russian air power and artillery. They are also against the Sunni militias and the Islamic State all of whom are backed by Saudi Arabia. Saudi Arabia and Iran are also slugging it out in Yemen. Egypt provides some support for the Sunni rebels in Syria and the United States arms the Kurds clandestinely. Until this imbroglio of competing versions and backers of Islam is resolved, there will be slowed progress on other fronts one of which is Israel. Still, the Islamists, who populate the darkened leftist corners of the Western political spectrum, will make every attempt to use political correctness, religious freedom, and civil rights for people of color, anti-Israelism and anti-Zionism to make their case for the suppression of the Jews who do not belong. They will continue on their programs to place Islam into the school agendas wherever possible so as to instruct and indoctrinate American, Canadian and European school children on how to be good little Muslims. In the end, this too will be a dissemination point for anti-Semitism.

 

Conclusions are numerous but can be summed up fairly succinctly. American Jews, especially those who are not orthodox in their practices, have largely replaced the morals and teachings of Judaism with the relativism of leftist progressive ideology. They have assimilated to such an extent that they believe they are as accepted into the mainstream as their irreligious Christian friends. This is leaving them blind to and horribly vulnerable to being blindsided once again as their forefathers were by anti-Semitism. They ignore anti-Israelism and anti-Zionism often even believing that these are causes which they too must support. They see Israel as their enemy and a representation of everything they despise. They largely would rather die than move to Israel and become real Jews and Israelis. This will leave them no other escape when things go horribly wrong and even if they manage to escape to Israel, they will simply start their same leftist drivel in Israel and should they succeed they will bring destruction down on Israel causing a second and final holocaust and Judaism will become a small group about the size of the Mennonites. These Jews are a danger to all other Jews who do not share their beliefs because they would try to press their anti-Jewish ideas and ideals onto the Jews worldwide never realizing it was their politics which destroyed them the first time. They simply will claim that it was not carried to its conclusion and only required more effort and funding. They are blind and delusional, a dangerous combination.
