It is the left-wing liberal Jews, Progressives, the Sarah Silverman’s of the world, who developed IfNotNow and Bend the Arc and Jewish Voice for Peace; and stand with Ilhan Omar. And the Jews who follow them are the weak ones, who align with the bullies. These are the Jews who fell for Obama’s disgust with Americans who hold on to their religion and guns. Those people. Who wants to be looked upon with scorn?
The Jewish people have a 3500 thousand year history of being hunted and murdered. Prosecution and pogroms. From Christians to Muslims. Richard Dawkins wrote about cultural memes being passed down through the generations, like eye colour. Our people have inherited fear. Before the Holocaust we learned to duck and hide. Whether in Europe or in America. Shhh. It will pass.
The Jews, today, who join these antisemitic groups just might be the Jews who have not been able to throw off the mantle of enslavement to fear. They are the fragile Jews. Jews we need to pity. They are, in other words, cowards. They have chosen to be with the majority in the world, who have no fear any longer of being anti-Semitic, because Jew hatred is now normalized in our world which worries about anti-Muslim sentiment; Islamophobia. And today it is played out in anti-Zionism.
There are 7 billion people on this planet. Four billion of whom are Christian, Catholic and Muslim. FOUR billion. There are only 14 million Jews. If you want friends, if you want to be liked and accepted, what side would you choose?
The weakest choose to be with the majority.
We have failed our children because we did not raise them to choose respect over being liked. We failed in instilling in them the knowledge that we now have a Jewish state, with people who hold on to their guns and Torah with pride. That 14 million Jews have so much power that the left leaning people in the world fear us so much that they try everything to demean us. We failed to teach our children that the Jews have a right to a country equivalent to one grain of sand amongst the world beaches or one star in the universe. We have a right to exist as Jews, in our own legal and historical homeland, like people of the other 192 nations.
Here are the views of Muslims:
From the Ethics of the Fathers: “Rabbi Tarfon used to say, it is not incumbent upon you to complete the task, but you are not exempt from undertaking it.”
