Democrats & Jews

Commentary by Dr. Gerhard Falk





There can be little doubt that Jared Lee Loughner, who killed six and wounded fourteen Arizona citizens, is a psychiatric case. Nevertheless, it is nonsense to believe that Loughner had no motive in shooting at Representative Gabrielle Giffords in the first place. If Loughner wanted to shoot at random or at any politician he could surely have done so. Yet, he chose Giffords because he evidently believed that shooting a Jewish woman would be viewed as legitimate in view of the insulting and demeaning manner in which the Democrat administration has treated Israel these two years. Israel easily translates into Jews, so that the dismissive and contemptuous manner in which Obama dealt with the Prime Minister of Israel, Netanyahu, made it appear legitimate to treat all Jews in that fashion.

There can no longer be any doubt that the Democrats are the party of anti-Jewish conduct and propaganda and that both Israel and the American Jewish community have become the targets of religious hate by Democrats. Here are the indisputable facts.

An NBC/Wall Street Journal poll recently concluded that 84% of Republicans favor the survival of Israel, while only 43% of Democrats agree to that proposition.

Another poll asked whether the United States should support Israel against Hezbollah, a terrorist gang determined to commit genocide against the Jewish people. Only 39% of Democrats support Israel vs. Hizbollah, but 64% of Republicans support Israel in this.

Here is more:

The Democrat James Moran of Virginia says that the Jews sent American boys into Iraq to benefit Israel, despite the fact that American Jews overwhelmingly opposed the war.

Cynthia McKinney, Democrat from Georgia, served in the House for six terms. There she constantly criticized Israel and cursed American Jews, using Arab money for her campaigns.

Earl Hilliard, Alabama Democrat, campaigned with the slogan “Davis and the Jews are bad for Alabama.” Davis was his opponent.

Charles Rangle, Democrat from New York, is constantly insulting Jews and Israel, as is Senator Durbin, Democrat from Illinois, who demeans the memory of the six million victims of the Nazi holocaust by calling American troops in Iraq Nazis for defending themselves against Arab terrorists.

Democrat John Conyers of the House Judiciary Committee called hearings to “impeach” President Bush. His witnesses were anti-Jewish hate mongers who claimed the Bush White House was controlled by the Jews.

At the Democratic National Campaign Headquarters, activists distributed anti-Jewish literature.

John Dingell, Democrat from Michigan, favored the victory of Hezbollah, a vicious hate gang seeking genocide of all Jews over Israel.

Jim McDermott, Democrat from Washington, supported Saddam Hussein and traveled to Iraq at the expense of an Arab terrorist organization.

Neil Abercrombe, Democrat from Hawaii and now governor of that state, was the only member of Congress who voted “no” on a resolution never to give foreign aid to the Palestinian terrorists.

Other prominent Democrats are Jesse Jackson, who calls New York City “Hymietown,” Al Sharpton, who led a pogrom in Brooklyn that killed a Jewish divinity student, and Jimmy Carter, former president, who writes anti-Jewish books.

Many more Democrats could be cited here for their anti-Jewish behavior. The reason for this conduct is that the Democrat base is anti-Jewish and that therefore Democrat Congressmen reflect the sentiments of their constituency. We Jews are fortunate that the Republican party won the last election and that many of our enemies were either defeated or are no longer in powerful positions in the House.

Unfortunately, the current administration is decidedly anti-Israel and contemptuous of Jews. It is therefore madness for Jews to support our enemies. Like lemmings, we seek to drown ourselves. Evidently, the majority of American Jews don’t care whether or not Israel survives. Yet, those Jews who keep voting for Democrats need to understand that the Israel haters also hate American Jews and that those who seek the destruction of Israel seek our destruction as well. Think about it.

Shalom u’vracha.
