American Jews can no longer just be characterized as disconnected from the political realities of these times. It’s far worse than that. They pose a threat to all Jews, and to America because they support politicians who are radically to the left and anti-Semitic. Though Jews are a small minority, affluent Jews with deep pockets do influence elections by propping up candidates like Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton who take Jewish support for granted with no compunction to honor the Jewish people. This pathology is fortified by feckless Jewish organizations who no longer oppose anti-Semitism. And it’s compounded by a lack of American Jewish leaders who fail to educate Jews blinded by a dogma that may have irreparably altered this great country of ours.
It’s as serious as that.
Many American Jews are indoctrinated to the left and are spiritually empty. They favor abortion over Israel. They embrace a secular leftism that supports organizations like J Street and the BDS movement. They lack a Jewish identity unlike the 30% of American Jews who understand the importance of Israel and were less inclined to vote for Obama because most identified him from the start as a pro-Muslim, Israel-hating ideologue.
But let’s regurgitate some facts. From the beginning many Chicago Jews supported Obama. They were mesmerized by his charisma, education, intelligence. Obama’s black skin and their affinity for the civil rights of the 60s, was all they needed to mount a Zionist promoted endeavor to bring him to power. He was declared by Pauline Dubkin on October 24, 2008 in the Chicago Jewish News…..as the candidate anointed by the Jews. “Jews made him. Wherever you look there is a Jewish presence.”
Some Chicago Jews were rightfully wary of Obama especially with respect to Israel. Joel Sprayregen, a Chicago attorney and active Jew, warned that Obama’s far left beliefs could jeopardize America’s national security. But there were plenty like Alan Solow, a Chicago attorney, who boasted about his long term friendship with Obama, declaring him to have a “long consistent record of pro-Israel support.” And other Jewish supporters like Abner Mikva, a powerful Chicago congressman; Rabbi Arnold Wolf, of KAM Isaiah Israel synagogue, another early backer who described Obama’s ‘Jewish side’; Newton Minow, a Democratic powerbroker and Bettylu Saltzman, whose father was a powerful Chicago developer, and known to have played a crucial role in promoting Obama. And there were plenty more beyond those just mentioned.
These were intelligent Jews wholly disconnected from a reality they refused to see or acknowledge.
The common sense Jewish naysayers were dismissed as the fervor to promote Obama gained momentum.
An astounding number of Jews were swept up though ominous signs pointed in the other direction. It was euphoric spin cooked up by Chicago media expert David Axelrod. Jewish voters gave Obama an overwhelming 78% of their vote. And despite Obama’s obvious hostility to Israel he still walked away four years later with 70% of the Jewish vote in 2012. Statistics that dismay.
Many Americans were fooled. With media complicity and Jewish support, Obama prevailed.
Promoting Obama was insulting. His attraction to vicious anti-Semites like Jeremiah Wright and Rashid Khalidi and people like Zbigniew Brzezinski and Robert Malley, all Jew haters included in his campaign, hardly mattered, certainly not to his Jewish supporters who should have known better. The facts were swept under the rug. Obama’s background was visible for all to see, those who bothered to look.
How embarrassed should American Jews be, given what we know now and should have known then? Their ideological leap superseded good judgment. They sabotaged America, a country that offered them unprecedented access to opportunity and good fortune. Little is said about this sordid reality, even among Jewish conservatives who prefer to look the other way.
Obama turned out to be a radical ideologue. Jews altered America by bringing Obama to power. He transformed our country to a place with run-on immigration linked to voter fraud, and a disregard for our constitution and free speech. He supports radical Islam, a frightful enemy that’s infiltrated many countries, our neighborhoods, our world. He supports Iran, disparages Israel. The Investigative Project on Terrorism calculates nearly 30,000 have been murdered per year by terrorists up from 3.284 deaths in 2010. We see Obama’s hand in the bully provocations of the Occupy Movement, Moveon.org, Black Lives Matter, all supported by George Soros, a twisted Jew in bed with Obama who seeks to destroy the country that made him very rich. Despite Soros’ glaring un-American threats, he operates unimpeded though some have suggested using criminal and civil laws to shut down his anti-American juggernaut.
So why haven’t we done that?
Mark Zuckerberg is another! He’s the $50 billion hypocrite. He advocates the legalization of millions of illegal immigrants. The more Democratic voters the better. Apparently, the two party system doesn’t work for him. He insists on protecting the rights of German migrants by monitoring Facebook for ‘racist and xenophobic comments’ made by German citizens who suffer under the migrant assault. With his insulated billions, Zuckerberg is oblivious to their plight. At the same time he refuses to protect Israeli citizens from bulletins posted on FB that encourage Palestinian stabbings and shootings now rampant in Israel. Unimaginably, he refused to remove the offensive posts. He was later sued for his shocking lack of compliance. His message is clear: Jews are expendable but terrorists and migrants are worth protecting. Astounding behavior that reveals a short sighted Jewish sensibility that takes him no further than that. His billions do not entitle him to smear his country, any country, yet he does it handily with little pushback.
There is Jewish complicity in an increasingly failing America.
It comes at a time when America faces an uphill battle in the upcoming election. Do we want a continuation of Obama with Hillary or a cessation of their disastrous policies? Do we seek change by electing a leader who can begin that process?
To do that, we’ll need to surpass the vicious spin that’s proven so effective before? Our country has changed. Many struggle, government dependency huge. The playing field altered. How else to explain the popularity of puppet nominee Bernie Sanders. And the deck is stacked against Trump and even Cruz both fingered as unelectable, certainly unlikeable, by the MSM, the republican establishment, the hardcore leftist movement that resides within the Democratic party. We see the left’s use of intimidation tactics against Trump’s awe-inspiring rallies designed to disrupt and provoke fear.
But the shameful AIPAC policy conference on March 20th captures best, complicit Jewish hypocrisy. Both Hillary and Trump signed on to speak. Hillary’s speech was accepted with little reaction though her lies and anti-Semitic views are well documented. AIPAC welcomes individuals who dislike Jews with ready acceptance. How else to explain their silence when proven anti-Semitic Democratic leaders air their views duplicitously at their conferences?
When Trump spoke to the massive Jewish crowd, many gave him standing ovations. They appreciated Trump’s unusual candor as he described Obama’s betrayal of the Jews. Trump told the truth, a predilection he indulges that still accounts for his frontrunner status.
But the pandering docile AIPAC powers went into apoplectic shock. So much so, that AIPAC president, Lillian Pinkus tearfully and cowardly apologized to Obama (who wasn’t present) for Trump’s message. His message, certainly true, was unfit for an organization that indulges false narratives. Pinkus even reprimanded the Jews who cheered for Trump. She betrayed her own people and further discredited AIPAC’s questionable non-partisan approach. And AIPAC hasn’t put a dent in Obama’s Iranian deal that threatens Israel, the country AIPAC is sworn to protect.
Why would any proud Jew get behind an organization capable of such delusional behavior?
Few Jews dare to express what has just been stated here. Is the unspoken truth another taciturn form of repression that Jews impose upon themselves? Truth is hard to come by in these constrained times. Few conscious Jewish leaders step up to encourage awareness. Their silence is deafening. And it may already be too late.
