A Question to Jews, “How Can You Stay with the DNC?”

A Question to Jews, “How Can You Stay with the DNC?”

I look at Democratic Party today, see how it has turned against Israel and the Jews, and ask myself, as a Jew, why would anyone remain part of a party that lifts rabid anti-Semites like Ilhan and Rashida, makes AOC seem like their mouthpiece, supports the likes of Bernie Sanders, who like many Jews on the far left seems full of self-loathing?

The democrats to continue in funding from their wealthy Jewish backers will show up at meetings like APAC and turn around and give a platform to rabid anti-Semites like Rashida, who have surrounded themselves with terrorist and terrorist supporters bent on the destruction of Israel. This is shown in the piece I wrote about her a while back – Rashida Tlaib And Ties To Terrorism.

Others like Ilhan openly support BDS, a group that spouts off it is to protect the Palestinian people, but then you look at the quotes of its leaders, the ones that founded the group, you soon see a much more sinister reason for its founding

As shown in the article BDS – The Truth Behind Boycott, Divest and Sanction, what is said and what the true intent is are two different things,

According to its website BDS describes itself as a harmless, yet well-meaning movement:

The Boycott, Divestment, Sanctions (BDS) movement works to end international support for Israel’s oppression of Palestinians and pressure Israel to comply with international law.

They go on to claim:

Boycott, Divestment, Sanctions (BDS) is a Palestinian-led movement for freedom, justice, and equality. BDS upholds the simple principle that Palestinians are entitled to the same rights as the rest of humanity.

Israel is occupying and colonizing Palestinian land, discriminating against Palestinian citizens of Israel and denying Palestinian refugees the right to return to their homes. Inspired by the South African anti-apartheid movement, the BDS call urges action to pressure Israel to comply with international law.

BDS is now a vibrant global movement made up of unions, academic associations, churches and grassroots movements across the world. Eleven years since its launch, BDS is having a major impact and is effectively challenging international support for Israeli apartheid and settler-colonialism.

Yet listen to their leaders you hear something else:

“BDS represents three words that will help bring about the defeat of Zionist Israel and victory for Palestine.” –Ronnie Kasrils

“[Israel] was Palestine, and there is no reason why it should not be renamed Palestine.” –Omar Barghouti, Founder, Palestinian Campaign for the Academic and Cultural Boycott of Israel.”


“[Palestinians have a right to] resistance by any means, including armed resistance. [Jews] aren’t indigenous just because you say you are….[Jews] are not a people…the UN’s principle of the right to self-determination applies only to colonized people who want to acquire their rights. ” –Omar Bargouti


“Going back to the two-state solution, besides having passed its expiry date, it was never a moral solution to start with. We are witnessing the rapid demise of Zionism, and nothing can be done to save it, for Zionism is intent on killing itself.” – Omar Bargouti

One looks at the more radical arms of the Democratic party, groups like Black Lives Matter, Antifa, and others. They all share one great commonality; they reject Israel and support the Palestinian narrative. They support BDS, march in the streets as they are chanting, “Free, free Palestine, from the Jordan to the sea!” We hear that this is not racist, but why not take a look at what sits between the Jordan and the Sea:

The Jordan River runs along the Jordanian border; thus, if you free from the Jordan to the Sea, you are calling for Israel’s destruction. One has to ask, why not at least be honest with everyone about what are you calling for?

I seldom agree with Norman Finkelstein, but on this point, I have to agree with what he says about BDS, but this could equally be expanded to the Democratic party and their radical elements.

“I mean we have to be honest, and I loathe the disingenuousness. They don’t want Israel. They think they are being very clever; they call it their three tiers. We want the end of the occupation, the right of return, and we want equal rights for Arabs in Israel. And they think they are very clever because they know the result of implementing all three is what, what is the result? You know and I know what the result is. There’s no Israel!

“They say no they’re not really talking about rights. They’re talking about they want to destroy Israel. And in fact, I think they’re right I think that’s true. I’m not going to lie. But this kind of duplicity and disingenuous, “oh we’re agnostic about Israel.” No, you’re not agnostic! You don’t want it! Then just say it!

“The moment you go out there Israel will start to say ‘What about us?’ and ‘They won’t recognize our right’ and in fact that’s correct. You can’t answer the Israelis on that because they’re making a statement that’s factually correct. It’s not an accidental and unwitting omission that BDS does not mention Israel. You know that and I know that. It’s not like they’re ‘oh we forgot to mention it.’ They won’t mention it because they know it will split the movement. Cause there’s a large segment of the movement that wants to eliminate Israel.” –Norman Finkelstein critiquing the BDS movement

This same applies to the Democrats; many believe they are pushing for a great thing. They speak out of ignorance and call for all Arabs to return to Israel, but I ask, what would that do to Israel?

When you have a group like Hezbollah that says:

It is an open war until the elimination of Israel and until the death of the last Jew on earth.
– Hezbollah statement, issued under Islamic Jihad alias
(United Press International, March 24, 1992)

If they [Jews] all gather in Israel, it will save us the trouble of going after them worldwide.”
– Sheikh Hassan Nasrallah, Hezbollah leader
(Daily Star, Lebanon, October 23, 2002)

This is nothing new. The father of the modern-day Arabs who claim to be Palestinians said the same thing in the middle of WW2; this was the Grand Mufti of Jerusalem, the one that ran to Hitler’s Germany and openly aided the Fascist in their ridding themselves of their Jews.

Kill the Jews wherever you find them. This pleases God, history and religion.
– Haj Amin al-Husseini, Mufti of Jerusalem
(Radio Berlin, March 1, 1944; quoted in Robert Wistrich, Muslim Anti-Semitism: A Clear and Present Danger [American Jewish Committee, 2002], p. 47)

So I ask when you have a group of people bent on the genocide of another, why would you support putting them next door to the very people they openly call to wipe out? Yet this is what some of the American Jewish left and the Democrats are calling for in America. I have to ask, are they so full of self-hate and loathing that they want another genocide? That is what would happen if this was allowed to be implemented. This is what people like Bernie Sanders is calling for.

I have had Jewish people from the left tell me they are part of the Democratic party because it stands for what they stand for? I ask them, would it make sense for the Jewish people in Germany to stand for the Fascist party in the 1920s; they were not calling for all Jews’ extermination then; they only openly hated them. I usually get a furious response, but I ask, what is the difference between that party then and the DNC today, other than one is a nationalistic party, the other has more a global view?

Both parties are bent on hate; the Fascist used their Eugenics, a theory from an American Liberal icon, Margaret Sanger, penned. The Fascists hated the Jews, blamed them for all wrong. The Democrats today apply the same to whites with their “White Privilege” doctrine.

You have self-hating whites, people like Michael Moore saying – “White people “are not good people,” you should be afraid of white people.” This is the message of the DNC today. In the 1920s, they started off demonizing Jews. Today they do it towards whites; the sad part is, today, the whites are helping spread this message. It looks like the patients are now running the madhouse.

Going to campuses, Jewish students have to hide their identity due to fear of attacks, openly hostile groups openly verbally and physically assaulting them. Yet, nothing is being done; many on the left are sticking up for these attacks.

I have no issue with Muslims, but why are they given different treatment? We deal with them from a place of meager expectations; why not demand the same from them that you do of others? They lead groups that attack Israel and the Jews; the Democrats go out of their way to make up excuses for them. Where is the condemnation they’re so fond of heaping on others?

One must ask, why is it that Christians are attacked for what was done in the name of Christianity 1,000 years ago, Judaism for cleansing what then was Canaan 3,200 years ago, yet the left does nothing but makeup excuses for what the Muslims are doing today? Or when you bring up autocracies, they yell back, “Look at what the Christians did during the Crusades!”

When the Jews were rampaging around Israel 3,000 years ago, the people then were sacrificing babies to gods. Other empires, such as the Assyrians, were coming in and exterminating whole groups of people, yet you never say a thing about this; why is that?

I usually reply, “When the Jews were rampaging around Israel 3,000 years ago, the people then were sacrificing babies to gods. Other empires, such as the Assyrians, were coming in and exterminating whole groups of people, yet you never say a thing about this; why is that?”

I have never heard someone yell at the Jordanians for their human sacrifice, or why I never hear about Rome, wiping out whole groups of people (look to Carthage). No one speaks of the atrocities the Muslims committed, but they go out of their way to do the same with other faiths. More so, they go back 1,500 years, or 3,000 years ago, use this to condemn while ignoring what is going on today.

Better yet, I hear all the time that I killed Jesus. First, how old do these people think I am? Further, last I checked, the Christian writings or belief states that Jesus died for the sins of the world. If you are going to blame his death on a people and not sin, the whole narrative is based on a lie; this is not very smart.

Further, last I checked, it was a Roman, Pilot who sentenced Jesus to death. Romans whipped him, put on a crown of thorns, a robe, and presented him back to Pilot, who then sentenced him to death. It was Roman Soldiers that forced him to carry his portion of the cross to Calvary, just like it was Romans that nailed Him to the cross, then thrust a spear in his side to ensure he was dead. Yet, never do I hear someone go up to an Italian and say they killed Jesus, so why is it acceptable to do this to Jews?

What you have today is unequal demands of justice by the left, they make up excuses for what a group of people is doing today, then go out of their way to condemn what people did three thousand years ago, a time when the disease was thought to be a curse of the gods, or some bad spirit possession when babies were sacrificed to appease the gods, yet you ignore in the next breath things being done now, why not be equal in your condemnation?

I will say that if there was genocide in the past by any group of people, it is wrong then as it is now. If people are slaughtering people due to their faith, or lack thereof, it is as wrong then as it is now.

If you hate a people because of their skin color or their religion, seek to exterminate or drive them out, it was wrong in 3,000 BCE, it was wrong in 100 AD, it was wrong in the Dark Ages, and it is wrong now!

It is time my fellow Jews call out racism from all quarters. I am deeply offended as a conservative of some of the racist we have on our fringe right, I hear the same from Republicans from our President down to the voter in the street, but for some odd reason, I never hear the condemnation for the racism seen in the DNC. If you follow the path of resisting racism, I tell you, you’re part of the wrong party; it is time to leave, and do so now.
