Democrat Party Opposes Israel Again

 

There were more statements by Democrat Party Presidential hopefuls stating that aid to Israel should be used to force Israel to surrender more lands to the Arabs. They are falsely claiming that “official United States policy” supports the two-state solution. The actual official position for the United States is fully defined under the The Anglo American Treaty of 1924 in which the United States joined the rest of the allies of World War I in support for the Mandate System and the Balfour Declaration including the provisions from the San Remo Conference. All of these paint a very simple picture, under international law, Israel has the rightful possession and ownership of all the lands west of the Jordan River stretching to the Mediterranean Sea. That includes the regions of Judea and Samaria or the Shomron or West Bank, no matter what you choose to call these regions, it all still belongs to Israel and that is the official United States policy under treaty. But why should we expect any historic knowledge to have any influence when the popular leftist belief is Israel is pure evil and should be punished simply for attempting to exist and have relative safety. We have spoken of this before and expect the position on Israel with the Democrat Party to simply continue to slide to an ever harder and rash position as time progresses.

There are those who have proclaimed that supporting Israel has become a partisan issue with the Democrat Party taking a strict line supporting the Arab Palestinian demands and insist that Israel is the obstacle to peace while the Republican Party has pledged to support Israel completely without regard for the propriety of their actions. Knowledgeable Zionists paying attention would probably give a less optimistic view of the United States. They would likely agree on the view given describing the positions of the Democrat Party but partially missed the reality about the Republican Party. Many of the old guard elite and the alt-right are completely opposed to even the idea of a Jewish State believing the founding of Israel was a grievous mistake of judgement and point to all the difficulties as their proof. What is true is that, despite the accusations of his being anti-Semitic, President Trump is a strong supporter of Israel which has been proven by his actions including recognizing Jerusalem as the capital city of Israel and Israeli ownership of the Golan Heights. President Trump’s “Deal of the Century” has still to be released and that will be the final exam on how far he will back Israel. The rumors have run the gauntlet from it all belongs to Israel to some form of the two-state solution. Of course, anything short of it all belongs to Israel falls short of international law and obligations as written in existing treaties. This reality will become completely evident when the problem is adjudicated on the stage of the World Courts in Geneva. Just to place a cherry on top, Article 80 of the United Nations Charter also places the power of the United Nations in support of the Mandate Systems as defined by the League of Nations.

 

All of this is not something which should come as much of a surprise to most people. All one need do is read just a little about the atmosphere at virtually any of the top and largest colleges and universities and their progressive articulation of every problem in the world. The propensity of these campuses is to hold BDS conventions, Palestinian Solidarity Weeks and a plethora of other anti-Israel demonstrations and events. Add to this that their teachers often hold hard leftist positions which leads to their lessons slanting against Israel seeking to meet the demands of heavy Islamic pressures which come with their donations and founding of Middle East departments with the professors all meeting the criteria set by the donors. AOC along with Tlaib and Omar are the new Democrat norm along with Sarsour and almost all, if not all, of the Democrat hopefuls for President in the upcoming 2020 elections in America. This slides towards ending the good relations between the United States and Israel. The State Department has opposed Israel since her inception. The Defense Department has supported Israel as their testing grounds of their equipment in actual combat. This has led to some crucial adjustments to military hardware which were overlooked during their design. Fortunately, as pointed out in the article linked above, Israel is no longer dependent upon aid from the United States which now does more for providing sales for the American defense industries. If necessary, Israel could resume producing their own aircraft, the first since the Lavi fighter which was the initiating factor to the Israel-American military cooperation.

Dependent upon which party takes control of the White House and Congress in the 2020 elections will be whether the United States will continue their friendly relations with the Jewish State of Israel. The reality is that politics is heading away from Israel and eventually rejecting everything related to the Judeo-Christian ethics. This shift in the politics of the entirety of the Western World will inevitably lead to their complete break with Israel blaming Israel for being the originating force behind the Judeo-Christian ethics and continuing to believe in the core beliefs which would become the eventual basis for Western society. The newest view is that Western civilization spawned all the world’s evils despite being the driving force which has eradicated the vast majority of slavery and numerous other evils. But the new view of the social sciences is behind much of this as it rejects any goodness resulting from Western civilization. Should everything reach what is the obvious end of these teachings and philosophy, Israel may end up as the last bastion of Western Judeo-Christian ethics. What will be unfortunate of such an eventuality is that Israel may not find any allies to stand with her and, if fortunate, will find at least a few nations who will not stand against her. Europe may already be on the verge of becoming lost as far as Western and Judeo-Christian society being at its core and replacing it with Sharia and the United States along with the remainder of the Western world might not be all that far behind. The Democrat Presidential hopefuls, some of the new members of Congress and the long-standing anti-Israel position taken by the Congressional Black Caucus all indicate the continuing movement which will lead to Israel being rejected by United States political leadership. Currently, such would be largely a part of the Democrat Party, but this does not excuse Republican Party which will probably follow along behind the current trends. Prophesy expected there to come a time when Israel would be forced to stand alone. This has never looked more possible than when watching the current political rhetoric.

The Reality on the Universally Spreading of Anti-Semitism

 

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

 

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

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

 

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

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

 

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

Truth is Often Completely Different and Unfortunate

We just finished reading this article by Alan Bergstein and felt this needs to explain things somewhat further. His theme is a valid one in that many within the Democrat Party, and we will give him Kudos for not calling it incorrectly the ‘Democratic’ Party, are defiantly anti-Israel and a vocal minority are fully anti-Semitic. He was correct in pointing out that the Democrat Party has their own enforcers who will protect the public from views which do not fit the extreme leftist agenda, and they are known as anti-FA, and whose tactics are closer to fascism than many of those they attempt to intimidate and otherwise silence. No, we do not support the alt-right, Nazis or any other extremist be they right or left wing extremes. We are pro-Israel and believe that the United States is a remarkable nation and a true experiment in the ability of humankind to rule themselves instead of depending upon a chosen elite. So, what can we add to the statements and accusation from Alan Bergstein’s article? Well, we know immediately what the objections would be coming, in particular from the Jewish tried and true Democrats, to everything Alan Bergstein pointed out, and that is ‘not my Representative’ and possibly Senators.

 

Right off the top, we will grant that your Representative to Congress, especially if your district is one of those which is predominantly Jewish, personally is pro-Israel, loves the Jewish People and shares your views as much as 90% and is right with you on every major topic. All of that matters not one iota once they get to Washington D.C. and this is one of those secrets they will not tell you about. But before we get to the conclusive results of how Washington works, allow us a chance to familiarize you with the nuts and bolts as we grew up inside the Beltway before there was a Beltway. We watched as Washington D.C. transformed from a sleepy little town with little real power to the center of power in the world itself all within twenty short and frenetic years. The first item you need know is that each bill which is brought before the Congress, and this goes for both the House and the Senate, reach the floor with three to five versions. Only one of these versions is slated to ever pass and proceed towards becoming law. The rest are written such that the majority of House and Senate members can vote for the bill which will have a poison pill in it making it unacceptable to the other Party, more often than not, the Republicans though they also do this slight of hand. Your Representative will vote for the version which has all the wonderful language and ideas which their constituents expect and adore. That bill will never really see the light of day beyond the one vote in which it is guaranteed not to pass. Then there is the golden bill which the powers that be in the party, be it Democrat or Republican, and on this bill, there is pressure put in place to have every legislator support the party position. Truth of the matter is the Republicans are really bad at party discipline but the Democrats have it down to a science. Very simply, if you do not desire facing a primary opponent backed by the National Committee, then you will do what the leader of the party instructs you to do, and if that means supporting the actual bill which your voters are against, well, then you vote against your supporters wishes in order to survive.

 

There was a Republican member of the House, Representative Jim Bridenstine, who was completely untamable and voted as his conscience and supporters desired. He came from Oklahoma District 1 which surrounds areas around Tulsa. The Republican Party ran their man against him when the former Representative, John Sullivan, retired and despite great efforts, Jim Bridenstine won the primary and then the election. The next few elections the Republicans put up candidate after candidate to destroy him and they lost one after another and Jim Bridenstine remained in Congress. Well, they just recently rid themselves of this honest man by appointing him to head NASA, a move the Democrats fought claiming he was not qualified to head NASA. They claimed that he was not a scientist with a PhD and was merely a Navy Pilot. So, apparently being a fair possibility to be an astronaut is not sufficient to head NASA, how interesting. Jim Bridenstine has college degrees, Rice University (BA) with majors in Economics, Psychology, and Business and Cornell University (MBA) and flew the E-2C Hawkeye aircraft as part of a carrier air wing (see image below). We thought that a Navy pilot, in particular a carrier pilot, with MBA degree and a BA in economics and psychology would make a great head for NASA and could be just the can-do attitude they could use to get them back into space and beyond Earth low-orbit, where they were concentrated with the Shuttle program and without even that ability when he was handed the keys. We will see how that turns out. The idea here to remember is that he was a Representative of his district who voted his conscience and not simply the party line, so they found something which they knew would appeal to him just to be able to place their own man in his place. Having lived in that district, we doubt they will succeed and will probably get another independent thinker in his place should one be made available. But that is how both parties operate, vote the party line when told to and forget all else or we will target you and be done with you one way or another.

Proof of this thinking can be found by simply going through the House or Senate voting on bills and the first thing you will note is that the Republicans have problems forcing the party to vote as one while the Democrats appear to have that down to a science. This was how Obamacare was passed and how the Trump agenda has been fought by the Democrats. An example was the vote taken on the Gorsuch nomination to the Supreme Court where all but three Democrats voted against his nomination and the three who voted in favor did so as it was a guaranteed affirmation and they reside in states which Trump won by double digits and desired some hope of surviving the next election. The reason for using the confirmation of Gorsuch was because most Supreme Court and other Presidential nominations are more often than not passed with both parties supporting the nominee as a form of respect for the President, something which went out the window after George W. Bush was elected and the Democrats started being a block in opposition no matter the nominee. There have been many votes where the Democrat Party basically cast there votes as if a single entity. This simply means that it does not matter what your elected Representative or Senate may state is their position, all that will matter in Washington D.C. is what the party desires. If you are in a conservative region such as fly-over country, yes, we resided there, and your Democrat is against abortion on demand paid for by the government or against partial birth abortion, as a Democrat they will vote in favor of such if their vote is required to pass legislation and their beliefs and your hopes become completely inconsequential. The Republicans have their demands such as support for individual ownership of firearms under the Second Amendment. But what about something we should all support?

 

Freedom of speech is presumably one of the five guarantees under the First Amendment along with Freedom of Religion (not freedom from religion), Freedom of the Press (media), Freedom to Petition the Government for Redress of Grievances, and Freedom of Assembly Peaceably. Freedom of speech is probably the one right guaranteed by the bill of Rights which virtually, if not, everybody would agree is basic to freedom and democracy as well as the American Republic. Yet this right is not an absolute on many a college and university campus. On numerous campuses, should a conservative speaker, or even a speaker whose politics is not known to be far left, is invited by the college Republicans, the Hillel, or even some group has rented to use a campus venue for their speaker whose politics are not perfectly in line with leftist ideology, there is almost a guarantee that the event will be protested so violently as to cause its cancellation. Other times even an approved college group will be disrupted and people even threatened and banners or flags destroyed by disrupters who prevent the meeting from continuing to do their business. Below is a video of the disruption and intimidation of the members of an SSI (Student Supporting Israel) event which it took close to eight months and the intervention of a legal aid group to get the university and the Irvine police to act against these lawbreakers. The aid from a legal group was also required in order to have any action taken against the leadership, which was provided from off campus, to be charged with disruption of a legal assembly. Their actions prevented freedom of speech and freedom to peaceably assemble, both First Amendment rights.

 

 

Here we have included a report of an individual’s encounter at such an event and a video where part of the chant claims they have absolute, and in the most stringent and vile terms, no use for police as they demand complete freedom, anarchy, mob rule, and that is how they operate, as mob rule with those willing to be the most violent are the ones who decide what is permitted. This article relates experiences and the required precautions necessitated one year later when they attempted to hold another pro-Israel event. The report tells of some of the taunts hurled at the pro-Israel supporters including, “You murdered Jesus” which is a common anti-Semitic blood libel. For a complete day or more of reading, all one need do is punch, ‘pro Israel event crashed by Palestinian activists’ into your browser and read away or go to watch the videos. Many of the videos are posted by the Palestinian protesters who are proud of their shutting down other people’s free speech but should somebody attempt to just hold a sign supporting Israel near one of their events, they should be prepared for intense intimidation. Below we are going to include a video from 2010 and an anti-Israel protest where sixteen-year-old ‘Daniel’ confronts lion’s den of haters to stand for the honor of Israel completely by himself. His staunch stand is unbelievable. The demonstration was over the Mavi Marmara incident with the Pro-Palestinian demonstrators claiming that the Israelis were murderers and when they interviewed the anti-Israel protesters you learned their ignorance on the issue.

 

 

These anti-Israel and pro-Islamic forces have united with the anti-FA and other violent groups working to destroy the United States and turn it in much the same fashion and using the same tactics as were used to destroy the nascent German Weimar Republic and the Russian February Bourgeois Democratic Revolution produced Russian Provisional Government, which was in the process of setting up a democratic state, when the October Revolution brought to power the Communists placing Vladimir Lenin in power; and the rest is, how do they say it, is history. These tactics are identical to the mob tactics of the SA and the Red Guard. The anti-FA claims that they are anti-fascists while claiming that the right and the conservatives are the fascists and these are who they are preventing from taking over the nation. Many claim they are wrong, but we give them partial-credit, as we are a kind bunch. They are correct in that they are against fascists in principle as their political beliefs fall into two categories, the international socialists, i.e. Communists, and the anarchists. Where they are wrong is the conservatives are not fascists which are usually interpreted as national-socialists. The conservatives are also forming two main groups plus a myriad of smaller factions. These groups are the Free-Capitalist, which include free-traders, fair-traders, entrepreneurs and Laissez-faire small government supporters, and the Corporatist-Capitalists who place the large corporations as their main concern believing that when those are healthy; the nation will be healthy (also supporting the idea of trickle-down economics).

 

The problem on the left of center is that currently there is this huge gap between the center and the current political power over the Democrat Party. There is this code; one could call it a law set upon the leftists where they must be in the form of the Musketeers, all for one and one for all. They call this ‘intersectionality’ which means if you are in any one leftist cause, Women’s rights, pro-Palestinian, anti-FA, anarchist, communist, Occupy Wall Street, Black Lives Matter or any of the other approved leftist thought patterns, then you are honor bound to support every other leftist group and they will in turn support you and this guarantees that every protest will be well attended, and of late well armed and guarded by the masked and hooded hoodlums in black. That is the positive side of the meaning of intersectionality, but it has a less positive and exclusionary and thought control side. You can be a supporter of gay rights and the entire LGBTQ agenda, women’s rights, socialist, and a slew of other left wing and leftist thoughts, but you have this small imperfection, apparently the one which can never be forgiven, you are not pro-Palestinian and actually support Israel. Supporting Israel is the one cause which will have you removed from the leftist track faster than any other breach of their protocol. For example, three people carrying Jewish Pride flags were asked to leave the Chicago Dyke March on Saturday in part because they “repeatedly expressed support for Zionism,” according to the organizers. From the same article, “They were telling me to leave because my flag was a trigger to people that they found offensive,” Laurel Grauer said. “Prior to this [march], I had never been harassed or asked to leave and I had always carried the flag with me.” Another person who was asked to leave told the Windy City Times that she was made to feel that “as a Jew, I am not welcome here.” Here is where intersectionality is splitting people from certain causes because they are the wrong kind of people, the wrong kind of people who are all too familiar with such a designation and know that once this split starts, it will lead down the same road it has led down for three thousand plus years. Where Linda Sarsour is not alone in this application of intersectionality, she was for a while, until things got a little too warm and close to the truth, the most outspoken of the women’s march against President Trump on Inauguration Day where Zionist women were turned away as unwanted at a number of the separate cities’ events around the nation. We did some coverage of her views while covering other acts of anti-Semitism such as the attack on a Kippah wearer in Berlin.

 

The reality is that the Democrat Party has lost their control over the little problems they tempted which have now become looming monsters controlling much of the Democrat agenda. These are some of the groups listed above which simply refuse to accept Trump as their President. Still, if you were to take a group of leftists and a group of Jewish opposition to Trump who wanted to wear Israeli flags as part of their attire, the two groups would not be capable of marching together. The extreme left is turning against Israel and will, in time, turn against the Jews and all the while there will be Jews supporting these movements and voting their representatives into office. What is amazing is that quite often the beginning of these movements for greater individual rights and guarantees that everyone receive equitable treatment are started by or originally supported by the majority of Jews. The Civil Rights movement worked with the Jews and Dr. Martin Luther King even stated the view that anti-Zionism is a form of anti-Semitism, and we know this is disputed and would like to present our research and the work of a researcher we trust. The following comes from Martin Kramer in Sandbox on March 12, 2012.


Shortly before he was assassinated, Martin Luther King, Jr. was in Boston on a fund-raising mission, and I had the good fortune to attend a dinner which was given for him in Cambridge. This was an experience which was at once fascinating and moving: one witnessed Dr. King in action in a way one never got to see in public. He wanted to find what the Negro students at Harvard and other parts of the Boston area were thinking about various issues, and he very subtly cross-examined them for well over an hour and a half. He asked questions, and said very little himself. One of the young men present happened to make some remark against the Zionists. Dr. King snapped at him and said, “Don’t talk like that! When people criticize Zionists, they mean Jews. You’re talking anti-Semitism!”

 

The Jews were amongst some of the leadership in the early and through much of the civil rights movement but in the same areas today, we find Black Lives Matter who are closely tied to the BDS movement against Israel and stridently Caucasian phobic shouting down any white speaker at a combined event last year. Louis Farrakhan and his Nation of Islam have also become more prominent in the leftist and black communities having connections to three of the organizers for the Women’s Day March in Washington D.C. Even Valerie Jarret, Barack Obama, and the Congressional Black Caucus have had their close ties to Louis Farrakhan without having to show the slightest remorse and in some cases an even ‘what you going to do about it’ attitude. The following outtake is from the June 12, 2018 American Thinker article titled “Democrats Need Anti-Semites to Win.”


Politically progressive Jews are also being ostracized by like-minded peers “because of their support, or even just presumed support, for Israel,” the report says: “Jewish students report being rejected from progressive social justice activities such as pro-choice rallies, anti-rape demonstrations, Black Lives Matter events and racial justice conferences.”

 

We could continue to quote parts from articles from all too many sources including The Federalist, Frontpage Mag, The Seattle Times and possibly the most damning piece for Leftist and Left Wing Jews Accuracy in Media. The sad truth is the Democrat Party is now completely subjoined to the far left and pure leftists and these groups hate Israel and only will tolerate those Jews they can use to be elected and have campaigns funded, after that, at some point, they will have no need even for those Jews and they will find themselves where the Jews have found themselves too many times before. What is remarkable is it is exactly this anti-Semitism which is the final argument for the necessity of Israel.
