By John Podhoretz

Jewish conservatives get asked this question more than any other: “Why are Jews liberals?” The question eventually got so tiresome that my father, himself a prominent Jewish conservative, wrote an ­entire book about tracing the history back to Biblical times. You can still buy it on Amazon. So I’m not going to answer it here.

What we know is this basic fact: In national elections, Jews vote for Democratic candidates by a margin of 3 to 1. That number has been fairly consistent through four elections now. It suggests Democrats should have no concerns about keeping Jews in their coalition for another generation.

And yet they do have such concerns. And they should.

This week, prominent Democrats announced a new group called Democratic Majority for Israel, led by the pollster Mark Mellman. He told The New York Times: “Most Democrats are strongly pro-Israel, and we want to keep it that way. There are a few discordant voices, but we want to make sure that what’s a very small problem doesn’t metastasize into a bigger problem.”

The “very small problem” Mellman has in mind is a trio of newly elected Democrats: Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, Michigan’s Rashida Tlaib and Minnesota’s Ilhan Omar. They seem to have very few foreign policy views aside from a caricature of Israel as an occupying colonial force that sits up at night thinking of new ways to torment Palestinians.

Such ideas haven’t arisen from nowhere. They are the full flowering of decades of leftist propaganda and fashionable campus blatherskite. From such repellent acorns mighty trees grow, as we have seen in Europe. Britain’s Labour party did little to head off the virulent Israel hatred in its ranks, and it is now headed by an out-and-out anti-Semite.

In Britain, once-overwhelming Jewish support for Labour has cratered. A poll before the 2017 election found that only 13 percent of Jews supported Jeremy Corbyn’s Labour because of its horrid record on ­anti-Semitism.

That is why Mellman and his fellow Democrats are smart to be doing this now, before the conflict actually begins to bite. The problem is “very small” at this moment, but the party’s trend line to the left suggests it will grow in force absent some major intervention or ideological change of heart.

Nor are the views of the new, leftist members of Congress completely alien to the kinds of Democrats who take official roles in the party. At the 2012 Democratic National Convention, delegates removed language supporting Jerusalem as Israel’s capital.

When the Obama White House, fearful of losing campaign dollars, intervened to have the language restored, there was a vocal fight on the convention floor. It sounded very much like those who didn’t want the pro-Jerusalem language restored won a voice vote — and when the chair announced otherwise, the hall erupted in boos.

Bernie Sanders came very close to espousing anti-Zionist opinions openly in 2016, and he won 22 states. His path was softened by the hostile posture of President Barack Obama’s administration. Obama claimed to be a friend of Israel, but there was no country or government he criticized more over his eight years — and he concluded his term allowing a UN resolution hostile to the Jewish state to pass without an American veto.

The activist base’s growing antipathy to Israel is less worrisome to friends of the Jewish state than it would have been at any other time in the country’s history, because Israel finds itself in a surprisingly strong position internationally and at home. It has held the line against Palestinian terrorism, and it is working in concord with Arab and Muslim nations in a manner that would have seemed science-fictional at the turn of the century.

What should be concerning is the subject that goes unaddressed in Mellman’s fight: the potential mainstreaming of anti-Semitism in the Democratic Party as represented by the renewed public importance of Louis Farrakhan and the refusal of vanguard figures on the left, like the leaders of the Women’s March, to repudiate his noxious filth.

Here, too, Democrats need not worry today about this electorally or when it comes to votes and donations. Instinctively liberal, Jews are bound to be more alarmed by some of the white-nationalist encroachments into President Trump’s GOP. But the Corbyn example looms large and is arguably far more dangerous to the American Jewish future than anti-Israel sentiment in the Democratic Party is to Israel’s future.

I think Podhoretz has the cart before the horse.

The Jews are the ones to be worrying.

Most of the left-leaning Jews I know would vote for Hitler himself if it meant protecting legal abortions.

As more Jews abandon Judaism for the theology of progressiveness and distance themselves from Israel and as more Muslims enter this country, “Jewish issues” will be less relevant to Democrats.

Jewish Democrats are rearranging the deck chairs as the Titanic sinks.

It’s a question of how long they can be the Democrats’ punching bag before they either leave their party or religion.

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.

Why do Muslims think it’s any of their business where Israel places its Capital?

It’s absolutely none of their business and any Muslim that approaches the subject should be summarily flogged and jailed.

How would Muslims like it if we told them where Mecca had to be moved?

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.

GO NRA!

Forty-five years ago this week the world received the honor of another “Palestinian” creation.

Arab Muslims labelled Palestinian savagely tortured and murdered eleven Israeli athletes at the Olympic Village in Munich.

Among other pastimes devised by “Palestinians” that have been emulated by Arab Muslims at large are:

Airplane hijackings

School shootings

Suicide/homicide exploding vest attacks

Knife attacks

Car and truck attacks

If only we would give them everything they want the world could be perfect.

He most likely never said this, but he is associated with this like “Play it again Sam”, is with Humphrey Bogart even though he never said that either.

“Who are these people?”

Answering that musical question is a paper by Dr. Alex Joffe.

Alex will next address the people of Fredonia, Lilliput, and the Grand Duchy of Fenwick.

Not to see Dr. Joffe out of work, but hopefully the myth of ancient Palestinians will be held in the same regard as the lunar composition of green cheese.

When I was in grade school, we were taught that Christopher Columbus discovered the Americas.

I’m pretty sure that this was a hemisphere wide phenomenon, especially after spending a Columbus Day weekend in Acapulco years ago and partying hearty with a number of guys down from Mexico City celebrating the holiday as well.

Columbus didn’t discover the Americas.

Beside all the Indians who knew it was here, many Europeans did as well.

Columbus was working off existing Portuguese maps and charts.

Columbus eventually commercialized the land mass that got in the way of his original goal; finding a water route to the Indies and the spice trade that made men rich.

We get too bogged down in inordinate sub-plots and lose sight of what was the root of Chris’ motivation.

Essentially, the overland spice routes went through Muslim dominated territories.

Look at a map.

Columbus for better or worse was looking to wrest control of the spice routes from the Muslim cartel that subjected the merchants to piracy, theft, murder and extortion.

I guess that’s just another reason for commies and anarchists to take down his statues.

Fearing Islam which wants 80% of humanity Enslaved or EXTERMINATED is totally RATIONAL and hence cannot possibly be called a Phobia. This video is not limited to any one religion but the following is true.
