The Ignorance And Hypocrisy Of The Jewish American Left.
For years the one constant that Israel had was the support of the Jewish American Left. when wars came they lined up to get tickets to fly to Israel to fight for it, they supported a less fortunate family that lived there by sending donations, much of what today is Israel was paid for by the blood of the American Jewish left, but this is starting to deteriorate in a hurry.
As a Jew you find from the time you are young, your heart is and always has been Jerusalem, the last 1,800 years Jews prayed around a table, said their prayers, always ending them with “Hopefully next year in Jerusalem!” Then in 1948 some of that changed, they saw what many had whispered about, had their heart yearned for, the nation of Israel was once more miraculously reborn in blood and war as a ragtag group of Jews fought off an Arab army better equipped and over ten times their size to hold onto their newly recreated nation. They fought with a fierceness not seen since the Maccabees, with the same knowledge that was held back then, a loss would result in their destruction, the Arabs had openly said they would wipe out every Jew in the land if they won, so they fought for their families, their very lives.
It was during this time that Jews from around the world did what they could to get to Israel, the Democrats at the time were in power in the US with Truman, although Truman did recognize Israel he and the leftovers from the Roosevelt administration, more specifically George Marshall was rabidly hateful of Israel and the Jews in general, went about setting up every blockade, including arms and making it a crime for any American to go to Israel to aid in their fight for independence, in fact, made it so any caught would be imprisoned for such an act. In spite of this Israel found ways around the arms embargo, one I may add that the Arabs were experiencing none of, were armed and led by British officers in their question to destroy the new nation, officers leading the Arab hoards who were still under commission and pay from the British Crown.
In spite of what we saw as Democratic opposition within the ranks towards Israel, something that has continued to this day, they did succeed, over the years had to fight another two devastating wars where the Arabs once more said their goals were the destruction of the Jewish state, and they won. It was this determination that finally drew the US towards Israel, in all fairness it was the Democrats who started this under Johnson, but it was the GOP under Nixon that put the modern bonds in place bringing the two nations closer togather, although in all fairness I can’t dismiss Johnson hand in this, while he did show support of Israel his party sure didn’t, but it was like with many things with him, the force of his will that pushed this support through. Someday I will have to get into Johnson’s actions in saving many Jews from the holocaust, but that is another story.
It was the change during Johnson’s presidency that caused some shock and a lot of resistance due to the Kennedy holdovers were not in any way friendly towards Israel, in fact, Kennedy had instructed his UN ambassador on numerous occasions to issue and support condemnations of Israel, a stance that was carried over by the Eisenhower administration.
While Kennedy sold Israel arms, mostly self-defense and forced cash for all sales, while at the same time offering up credit to just about everyone else for their purchases, it was Johnson that broke with this, picking up aid his first year by 75% and started sending Israel surplus equipment that they right away set about modifying to meet their demands. This was then greatly increased under the Nixon administration and was very much needed, Israel had before this been mostly supplied by France, who after the 6-day war cut off all arms sales to Israel. This then caused Israel to shift and look to the US to aid in arms production, although they were also manufacturing their fighters due to the concern of France doing this before it was done.
France is an interesting case, they were close to Israel after their founding, but I don’t think it had anything to do with their liking of Israel, it had more to do with Israel had some of the top physicist minds in their nation, many who had left Russia under the persecution that was picking up under Stalin against the Jews and the American Jews that had worked on the Manhatten project and had migrated to Israel, France needed this to aid in the development of its nuclear program, so it was easier to supply weapons and maintain a relationship with Israel while this was being done. It is rather funny that right after France set off their first H-bomb test they did not even wait a month to cut off ties and all military sales to Israel, they had gotten what they wanted, their anti-Semitism was now allowed to come back into the picture.
But back to the Democrats, what they don’t like to speak about is their history of hatred of the Jews, the party that brought us the KKK, the ones that marched in the streets of Washington with huge parades of democratic clansmen dressed in their white sheets chanted their hatred of Jews and blacks, yet even then there were Jewish democrats, For the life of me I can’t understand this, I have said before maybe some American Jews have a self-hatred, makes as much sense to me as being a Fascist Jew.
What is more, today the Jewish American Left seems to if anything be distancing themselves from Israel, you have youth that actually openly support the likes of Hezbollah and Hamas, groups who have stated to the world their ultimate goal is to bring all the Jews into one place, so they don’t have to chase after them when they move to kill them all. I am sorry, these fools are as stupid as the ultra-orthodox Jews that refuse to recognize Israel, fight to protect it, naturally, they are the first to stand in line and demand that Israel supports them while their men refuse to work, demand the state they refuse to recognize supports and protects them. In this I have to say the people of Israel are far, far nicer then I am, I would have tossed them out. But even worse then this is the very few that are willing to go to Iran, to support their ambitions against Israel, these fools are no better than the Kapo’s, in fact, are worse, the Kapo’s in many cases were doing what they did to survive, these idiots have no excuse.
Today we see the Democratic party moving back to its roots, while it has switched its hatred from blacks to whites, it still wishes to hold onto its old hatred of the Jews. We see the likes of the American Black Caucus embracing Farrakhan, leaders like Ellis who have ties to radical Islamic organizations that support radical Islamic terrorist groups. You have groups that are the darlings of DNC and leftist academia Islamic Relief Worldwide who openly fund the terrorist groups Hamas and Hezbollah, have received millions of dollars from corporate charities like the GE Foundation, community foundations like the Silicon Valley Community Foundation, and independent foundations like George Soros’ Open Society Foundation.
You have groups like Islamic Circle of North America (ICNA) , which is openly pushing to bring Sharia to America and turn us into a califate, if you dare say a word against them you are attacked from the likes of Dingbat Waters as being a racist (I still have yet to understand what racism has to do with this, I thought Islamic followers came from all races, maybe Waters is either uneducated or racist herself), supports the establishment of an Islamic caliphate and has ties to a radical Pakistani political group called Jamaat-e-Islami. Al-Qaeda recruiter Anwar al-Awlaki spoke at an event for the ICNA in 2002. ICNA members have been involved in terroristic activities in the United States. One woman was arrested in 2015 for allegedly planning a terrorist attack had spoken at multiple ICNA events. Five students who were arrested for terrorist activities in 2009 were all members of an ICNA mosque in Alexandria, Va. This should not be too surprising, the leader of this organization, Dr. Essam El-Haddad, was a senior official for the Muslim Brotherhood government in Egypt, yet even with this knowledge you still see them getting funding from major corporations that are also very much in the pocket of the left, these are the same ones filled with democratic actors, the ones supported by both the left and the Jewish American Left.
But one of the most surprising things of all is the likes of Bernie Sanders standing up and holding hands in solidarity with Linda Sarsour, who is openly supportive of Islamic radical groups, Sarsour’s infamous remarks about chopping off the vaginas of girls she deemed unworthy of being women and having known ties to terrorist groups, were child’s play. Not like being a child growing up in a radical Muslim country is even a childhood. Her remarks about Muslims being forced to attack Americans because “they couldn’t assimilate” were mild and tame compared to the real fiery Islamic rhetoric caught on video this week at a pro-Hamas fundraiser.
Her idea of living as an American in our nation is very well summed by her speech here:
“They are relentless, they are persistent and consistent and want to see how much as a community we can endure and wanna see who our friends are and how hard we are going to fight back against this administration.”
“And I hope that when we stand up to those who oppress our communities,” Sarsour continued, “that Allah accepts from us that is a form of Jihad! That we are struggling against tyrants and rulers–not only abroad in the Middle East…but here in the United States of America where you have fascists and white supremacists and Islamophobes reigning in the White House.”
Sarsour also said, “Our number one priority is to protect and defend our community, it is not to assimilate and it is not to please any other people and authority…Our TOP PRIORITY even higher than all those priorities is to please Allah and ONLY Allah!”
What is worse, if you dare to point this out, you get attacked by the likes of Huffington Post, a site ran by Lydia Polgreen who has gone out of her way to apologize and bring in apologist for the radical Islamic movement.
I think what has surprised me the most, the Jewish American Left that in spite of the DNC having to cheat during the second term convention for Obama to show support for Israel, while Obama disrespected a sitting leader of Israel, actually sent his own election team to Israel to aid in the opposition to try to unseat this prime minister and handling millions of dollars in collusion with Europe to aid in this quest from our State Department, which has never been done to any friendly nation in our history, the American Jews still supported him.
He lost a couple when in the waning days of his administration decided to stab Israel in the back, choosing to abstain from the attacks in the UN against Israel, this was the same resolution that in addition to condemning Israel for building settlements this UN Resolution also scapegoated Israel alone for being a barrier to peace between Israel on one side and on the other side; the radical Islamic terrorist group Hamas ( who rules Gaza) and the equally corrupt/violent/ anti-Semitic Palestinian Authority on the West Bank. The followers of both groups are either Palestinian-Islamic terrorists or radical Islamic terrorist sympathizers.
After Trump won the presidency, we saw further attacks from the Jewish American Left over Trump’s recognition of Jerusalem as Israel’s capital, conservative Jewish groups rejoiced, but many from the left sure did not. California Bay Area’s Jewish Community Relations Council hit a cautionary note, saying in a statement that while it “has long believed that Jerusalem is – and should be recognized internationally as – the capital of the Jewish and democratic state of Israel… Many in our Jewish community are deeply concerned that today’s announcement will make it harder to achieve the goal of peace, and further divide Israelis and Palestinians” and that there is “therefore a sense that now is not the time for this announcement.”
J Street said the decision “could seriously undermine the administration’s stated commitment to resolving the Israeli-Palestinian conflict while potentially threatening Israel’s security and alienating Arab regional partners.” This should surprise no one, they have done all they could to stand against Israel and the current administration there.
The New Israel Fund, which channels funds to progressive Israeli NGOs, called the president’s decision to begin the process of moving the U.S. Embassy to Jerusalem “a dangerous, reckless, and irresponsible move by a dangerous, reckless, and irresponsible American president,” adding that, “Israelis will be the ones to pay the price.”
IfNotNow, an anti-occupation organization, condemned the decision to recognize Jerusalem as Israel’s capital, as did the Oakland-based Jewish Voice for Peace.
“Trump and Prime Minister Netanyahu both know that any change to an already untenable status quo in Jerusalem has the potential to spark deadly violence. Yet they continue to capitulate to the political whims of the far right, advancing extremist policies, with no care about the impact on the lives of everyday Israelis and Palestinians,” IfNotNow said in a statement.
JVP went further, saying the move “endorses Israeli policies of dispossession and forcible transfer, further harming the rights and lives of Palestinians and crushing any hope for a peace based on equality and freedom for everyone in the region.”
We have seen what was once a source of support for Israel, the Jewish American Left now are quickly turning against the nation, some Jews within the groups are quick to go to the Arabs propagating the Palestinian myth, work against the nation of Israel to undermine its security. Many of these same Jewish youth on American campuses will side with the leftist professors as they attack anyone that dares show support for Israel, yet the American Jewish left still cling to the party, one that if they had their way would toss Israel into the dustbin of history, weep and cry with great crocodile tears over its demise, then walk away satisfied that another thorn in its side is gone forever.
If we have seen anything as of late, we have seen who the true friends of Israel are, and it is not the DNC or the Jewish American Left.
