JEWS AND POLITICAL SUICIDE

Star of David with shadow

From: The Times of Israel – February 2019

By Rabbi Benjamin Blech

To tell the truth I’m not surprised at the resurgence of anti-Semitism – not only across the world but even here in the United States. Anti-Semitism is an ancient sickness long ago predicted by the Torah and the prophets, historically rooted in theological hatred as well as xenophobic fears, and utilized by despots of every generation to scapegoat Jews as a way of diverting attention from their crimes.

What continues to amaze me though is – and let me be as blunt about it as possible – Jewish stupidity.

Jews are supposed to be smart. We never stop boasting, at least to ourselves, about the number of Nobel prize winners from our people, the amazing contributions we have made and continue to make to the world in every field of endeavor. Why is it then that when it comes to politics, to making our voices heard in ways which promote the most important areas of our self-interest and yes, even our survival, we seem to abdicate reason and side with those who make clear that they are our enemies?

A number of years ago, in a now classic article in Commentary magazine, Philip Himmelfarb made the astute observation that “Jews earn like Episcopalians and vote like Puerto Ricans.” Jews may have risen to financial security but their political support remained solidly for liberal causes in line with the disenfranchised and economically oppressed in the social order. Jews voted more in line with their liberal views than their personal needs.

Leonard Fein said it explicitly: “Politics is our religion; our preferred denomination is liberalism.” And that may have been fine a generation or two ago. Liberalism which preaches fairness, liberalism which is grounded in biblical and Jewish traditions of concern for fellow human beings, is a cause to which we may all subscribe with devotion.

But there is a tragic truth we have learned in the recent past. It has taken off on college campuses across the country. It has made its appearance in organizations ostensibly founded on liberal concern for justice and equal treatment for all, no matter race or religion. It has even, and most disconcerting, found an unlikely home in the Congress of the United States of America. It is nothing less than “hateful liberalism” – liberalism with love for all, just not for Jews; liberalism with fairness for all, just not for Israel.

In a collection of some of the best, funniest and most profound lines in cinema history critics cite the Oscar-winning Woody Allen movie Annie Hall and the scene where Alvy Singer, played by Alan, tells the woman who will become his first wife, “Right, I’m a bigot, I know, but for the left.” It is a revelation almost prophetic: bigots exist not only as fanatics on the right – they can also very often come in the form of bigots on the left.

Liberals who demand equality for the LGBT community and then side with the Palestinians against their Israeli “oppressors” seem to have no problem with the inherent contradiction that Palestinians throw gays off rooftops to their death while Israel permits gay parades as part of their being a democracy.

Liberals manage to overlook the “pay to slay” policy of Palestinians, giving lifetime rewards to Arab terrorists who murder innocents like 19-year-old Ori Ansbacher, a young Orthodox Jewish girl who was completing a year of compulsory national service in Israel working with children in a youth center in Jerusalem. Somehow there are a lot of bigots on the left- bigots whose hearts only bleed for non-Jewish blood and who couldn’t care in the least when the victims are victims of anti-Semitism, the oldest hate crime in history.

And now bigots have found a home in Congress. Bigots feel free to spew hate filled memes, in the words of Ilhan Omar calling on Americans to acknowledge that “Israel has hypnotized the world, may Allah awaken the people and help them see the evil doings of Israel” and that Israel is “an apartheid regime.”

BDS, the movement whose goal is to ultimately bring the very existence of Israel to an end, has a significant number of defenders in Congress, many of whom will be running for president in the next election.

So I return to my contention that when it comes to politics Jews somehow display an incredible level of stupidity. Politicians have come to take for granted that Jews are willing to forsake their self-interest. Yes, Jews earn like Episcopalians and vote like Puerto Ricans – but Puerto Ricans themselves are smart enough to vote for what is good for Puerto Ricans.

Why is it that only Jews think it is indecent for Jews to ask themselves at the voting booth the most obvious question, “is it good for the Jews?”

In a country where barely 50% go to the polls, Jewish voter turnout averages around 85%. In a presidential system based on electoral votes, where key “swing states” like Florida, Ohio, Pennsylvania and Michigan, Jews have sizable concentrations in southern Florida, Cleveland, Philadelphia, Pittsburgh and Detroit, Jews theoretically are blessed with considerable political power. That potential influence, however, is wasted and unlike any other voting block of comparable self-interest is negated by its unwillingness to identify and fight for its own causes.

Ilhan Omar was elected after her pro-Palestinian views and anti-Semitic tropes were already well known. She cruised to victory in November in Minnesota’s fifth district which encompasses Minneapolis and some of its suburbs, including St. Louis Park which has a large Jewish population. The seat opened up when 12 year incumbent representative Keith Ellison, with past ties with Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan, decided to run for state attorney general – to which he was in fact elected.

Jews are smart – but when it comes to politics we have a long history of stupidity. We still can’t believe we have enemies. We still can’t acknowledge there are evil people who want to destroy us. We still can’t recognize that those who express anti-Semitic ideas really mean what they say even if they subsequently offer halfhearted apologies.

In an age when the lessons of the Holocaust seem to have been condemned to forgetfulness we can’t afford to become victims of political suicide. It is high time for us, as every other group anxious about its own survival, to make “is it good for the Jews” a chief concern of our voting behavior.

THE STUPIDITY OF ANTI-SEMITIC BIGOTRY

Below is a scanned page from D. Lloyd George’s 1893 book where he comments on the pandemonium of anti-Semites.

Keep in mind that we have several notable anti-Semites right within our government. Here are the most radical anti-Semites in 2019. Click on their names below for articles about their radical Muslim ties.

Congresswoman & Muslim – Ilhan Omar, D-MN.

Congresswoman & Muslim – Rashida Tlaib, D-MI.

Attorney General & Muslim – Keith Ellison, D-MN.

Since Ellison has been Deputy Chair of the Democratic National Committee since 2017, this basically ties all Democrats to anti-Semitism. This should come as no surprise to anyone who is already familiar with the fact that Democrats are racist, seditious, traitorous, corrupt, criminal cretins.

THE NEW JEWS

swastika

Adolf Hitler did a brilliant and effective job of generating mass hate for and against Jews with his Nazi movement.

He understood that humans always need someone to hate, so he gave them just that. He also understood that if he could get everyone on the same sheet of hate music, he could use them as his personal hate army.

By employing all the Jedi mind tricks he could conjure up in order to influence others into becoming flaming anti-Semites like himself, he knew he could take their minds off the suffering German economy.

One of the most creative Nazi tricks was to blame everyone else for all the atrocities they themselves were perpetrating. The effectiveness of this technique may seem counterintuitive, but we can all see how well it worked then and still works today. More on this later.

But rather than using Donald Trump-like techniques to jump start the economy, Hitler fired them up and led them into a world war by using bigotry, racism, propaganda, hate, lies, false promises and insanity—all of which took their minds off their woes.

We all know how that story ended.

Fast forward to 2015 when Donald Trump announced his candidacy as a Republican for the presidential race of 2016 and won. Again, an economy was suffering and everybody with half a brain had a gullet full of the “anointed one,” Barack Hussein Obama. However, in this case Trump employed actual fixes to Barry’s liberal blunders and Muslim sabotage which had created huge public dolor. Trump repaired our failing economy and it is now booming.

How did the Democrats respond from the outset of Trump’s candidacy? Trump instantly became the object of their ire. They took their fallback position: Smear the bastard!

So, has this worked for the left?

For the sake of drawing an accurate parallel, let’s call the entire left—from center left to the whacked out far left—”Nazis.” This includes the propaganda wing called the mainstream media (MSM), politically left courts (like the 9th circuit), liberal states, all Democrat politicians and Republicans in name only (RINOS).

Since 2015, every hour of every day of every week of every month has been devoted to tearing down Trump by the Nazis and every other leftist from Toledo to Timbuktu. It has ultimately become a worldwide Nazi movement against Trump and anyone who supports him.

According to these Nazis, if one does not behave and think exactly as they dictate, then one is guilty of bigotry, racism, propaganda, hate, lies, false promises and insanity. Sound familiar?

As far as the Nazis are concerned, conservative Trumpers and our Constitutional Republic have become the new Jews. Ironically, liberal Jews are co-conspirators in this Nazi world.

Ashkenazi Jews Can be Identified at 100% Accuracy by DNA Tests

A STUDY, A genome-wide genetic signature of Jewish ancestry perfectly separates individuals with and without full Jewish ancestry in a large random sample of European Americans, indicates that Ashkenazi Jews, though mixed with Europeans to a degree, can nevertheless be genetically distinguished from Europeans with an accuracy of 100 per cent. The title is so informative that pasting the abstract is almost unnecessary, but here is the conclusion which gets to the point:

In conclusion, we show that, at least in the context of the studied sample, it is possible to predict full Ashkenazi Jewish ancestry with 100% sensitivity and 100% specificity, although it should be noted that the exact dividing line between a Jewish and non-Jewish cluster will vary across sample sets which in practice would reduce the accuracy of the prediction. While the full historical demographic explanations for this distinction remain to be resolved, it is clear that the genomes of individuals with full Ashkenazi Jewish ancestry carry an unambiguous signature of their Jewish heritage, and this seems more likely to be due to their specific Middle Eastern ancestry than to inbreeding.

There have been other papers which show that Ashkenazi Jews form a separate cluster from gentile whites in the United States. This is important again in the context of biomedical studies attempting to ascertain the genetic roots of particular diseases; population substructure (e.g., Jew vs. non-Jew) may result in confounded associations. Also, one of the authors of the paper is David Goldstein, author of the fascinating Jacob’s Legacy.

In any case, on to the PC charts where the real action is. Do note that I’ve resized and added explanatory labels here & there for clarity.

i-a2f589da83c5fdb38236e67105526c0c-jewpc1

As you can see, there is almost perfect separation between the Jewish and non-Jewish clusters here. PC 1 = first principle component of variation, and PC 2 second principle component of variation. These are the two largest independent dimensions of genetic variance extractable out of the data set. The authors note that there is almost perfect separation along PC 1, and, they note that most of the gentile whites who are closest to the Jews on this PC are of Italian or Eastern Mediterranean origin. This is important later.

i-514e27460f3beec76649da58e082aaf8-jewpc2

As you can see here, the interesting point is that Jewish ancestral quanta is roughly predictive of genetic position. This shouldn’t be that surprising once we know that Jews and non-Jews separate so cleanly (e.g., someone who is biracial would be located between their two parent racial clusters on any plot), but it is striking nonetheless in reaffirming the genetic reality of Jewishness. The United States has an easy genealogical history for Jews, as the ancestors of all self-identified American Jews today arrived on the order of 4-6 generations ago. These individuals were likely Jewish relatively far back in their lineages, and admixture is easy to recall because it is of recent vintage.

Finally, let’s put Ashkenazi Jews in the worldwide context.

i-a0f9bdcea9f789e8de3f266c708a7d7d-jewpc3

I labeled a few populations for clarity. Orcadians are individuals from the Orkney Islands, just off the northern coast of Scotland. As you can see, American whites occupy an expansive region, in large part due to their diverse origins and admixtures. The Druze have been genetically isolated for over 5 centuries, so it is not particularly surprising they form a distinct cluster. It is likely a function of drift due to bottlenecking, just like Iceland. The separation between the Ashkenazi and the Palestinians might be of interest to some because of political reasons.

As the authors note, the Ashkenazi are almost certainly a compound population. There are full-Jews who “look gentile” and full-Jews who could pass easily in the Middle East as a native. Most Ashkenazi Jews exhibit a mix of features. The genetic likelihood that the Ashkenazi have varied origins should be no surprise. The paper notes that Askhenazi heterozygosity is actually somewhat greater than American whites, implying that the source of their distinctiveness has to do with genetic origin, not genetic history (i.e., population bottlenecks). Another population which I suspect resembles the population history of the Ashkenazi are Uyghurs, who fall between Europeans and Han Chinese in their ancestry. But the hybridization even occurred in the past, so the Uyghurs today can be thought of as a separate population with its own suite of genetic combinations, as opposed to a hybrid of two “pure” groups. Similarly, Ashkenazi Jews no doubt emerged from hybridization events between Middle Eastern and European females, but over the generations they have been relatively endogamous (most gene flow has been out of the community into gentile Europeans through conversion) and so are a genetically coherent population in their own right.

Note that the authors had only a few non-Ashkenazi Jews in their sample, so the assertions above only apply to the Ashkenazi (95-99% of America’s Jewish population, but only ~50% of Israel’s).

Update: Dienekes emphasizes that the hypothesis that the admixture element which makes Ashkenazi Jews distinctive from other Europeans is Middle Eastern is somewhat speculative. I’m less skeptical than him seeing as how some Y lineages are Middle Eastern, but he offers this interesting point:

With that said, I do suspect that the distinctiveness of the Ashkenazi Jews is in part due to the possession of a Middle Eastern component of unspecified strength. I base this hypothesis on the results reported to me about the EURO-DNA-CALC test. This test distinguishes between NW, SE Europeans and Ashkenazi Jews; a few Arab individuals who have communicated their results to me have reported fairly high Ashkenazi Jewish components, indicating that part of what distinguishes an Ashkenazi Jews from Europeans is related to the Middle Eastern Semitic background of that group.

When Will It Finally Be Never Again?

Everyone loves to feel good about themselves when they can cry over dead Jews.

Those tears are worthless and offensive and as far as I’m concerned you can choke on them.

Think about those tears when you hear some one disparage, deny, demonize or delegitimize Jews and you say nothing, or when the voice is yours.

You want to hate Jews?

That’s your right I suppose, but let me in on your dirty little secret and I’ll give you some real good reasons to hate at least one Jew.

Otherwise shut the fuck up.

Hat tip to Elder of Ziyon and his take on you motherfuckers:

I’m reading various account and commentaries of the horrific shooting and massacre of Jews in synagogue in Pittsburgh today, and everyone is putting up their own political spin on the event. It is expected — and disgusting.

The suspect didn’t target Jews because of “occupation” or because he was a Trump supporter (he wasn’t) or because he had access to guns or because any Jews did anything to him personally. He is just an antisemite who is not sophisticated enough to couch his hate in terms like “anti-Zionist” or “anti-capitalist” or “pro-justice” or any other of the dozens of terms used nowadays to make Jew-hatred a little more palatable.

There are more crimes targeting Jews in America than crimes targeting all other religions combined. There is no common thread — the far-Left hates Jews, the far-Right hates Jews. Muslim Jew-hatred is “understood” and down-pedaled [sic] by the Left. And people will be gleeful that today’s murderer identifies with the far-Right, just as the Right will disavow their role in emboldening the hate on their side.

Antisemitism is not like other hates. There is no logic behind it, no justification for it. Jews aren’t allowed to be in “our country” but are not allowed to be in their own country either. Assimilated Jews are as much targeted as religious Jews. Jews are vilified by extremists of all stripes.

Stop using this massacre as an excuse to pin this on ideological and political enemies. Every group has Jew-hatred associated with them in one way or another. If you truly care about Jew-hatred, root out antisemitism from among the groups that you identify with.

Don’t pretend it isn’t there… because it is.

ISAIAH CHAPTER 49

Lest any of you jackanapes, heathens and Philistines forget what The Almighty has in store for those who try and fuck with Jews.

Here is His message to the children of Jacob.

Not the children of Abraham or Isaac because some of them gave rise to Arabs, i.e. Ishmael and Esau.

And kings shall be thy foster-fathers, and their queens thy nursing mothers; they shall bow down to thee with their face to the earth, and lick the dust of thy feet; and thou shalt know that I am the LORD, for they shall not be ashamed that wait for Me.

And I will feed them that oppress thee with their own flesh; and they shall be drunken with their own blood, as with sweet wine; and all flesh shall know that I the LORD am thy Savior, and thy Redeemer, the Mighty One of Jacob.

May he go from strength to strength.

Wasatia: The Straight Path from Denormalization to Reconciliation

 

WHILE MUSLIMS SLAUGHTER, JEWS HELP MANKIND

Jews worldwide develop skills in business, technology, and science in order to help cure illnesses and grow their economies.

Concomitantly, Muslim and Arab Countries are taught to develop skills on how to destroy Israel.

Since the War on Terror began, 2-4 million radical Muslims have been eradicated, whereas only about 15,000 counter-terrorism soldiers have given their lives.

So, Muslims are systematically phasing themselves out.

The disparity in the true number of dead jihad-mongers is due to underreporting of deaths by Muslim countries.

Some scholars put the actual number of dead Muslims at nearly 4 million.

Pretty soon we’ll be freed up to go after the liberals.

Can’t wait.

The average American is likelier than Europeans to defend Jews, experts say

By RON KAMPEAS/JTA

On Friday, the World Zionist Organization released a survey comparing perceptions of antisemitism; 51 percent of respondents in Europe said wearing Jewish symbols in public made them feel unsafe.

It’s better here: That was the message of a panel of experts considering the rise of the extreme right and of antisemitism in the United States and Europe.

That was the good news at Monday’s forum, sponsored by Georgetown University’s Center for Jewish Civilization. The less good news was that no one could quite pin down why Americans were more resistant to antisemitism than Europeans. >>More

‘Nuff said.
