Left Wing Bigotry
There are approximately 1,700,000 Jews in Europe today. The estimates
vary, alone because no one has ever been able to answer the question: “Who is
Europe has a population of 750 million, or 11% of the world’s population, so that the Jews of Europe would normally be invisible. In fact, the majority of Europeans have never seen a Jew.
demonstrations and hate are as common in Europe today as they were in the 20th
century before, during, and since the Holocaust. In France, the home of 600,000
Jews, graffiti calling for the killing of Jews is found on the walls of
buildings all over the country. Synagogues are regularly firebombed, as Jews are
beaten in the streets, reminiscent of Hitler’s Germany.
Likewise, anti-Jewish demonstrations
occurred throughout Europe during January. In Madrid, Spain, demonstrators took
to the streets cursing Jews and the United States, encouraged by Spanish radio
stations. These hate mongers equated the Star of David with the swastika and
then threw stones as the Embassy of Israel. This although Spain has only 48,000
Jews in a population of 40 million. Likewise in Norway, with a Jewish population
of only 1,500, anti-Jewish riots rivaled the demonstrations in London, England
and almost all other European cities. In fact, the Jews in the United Kingdom
are in as much danger today as were the German Jews shortly before the Nazi
takeover in 1933.
The organizers and perpetrators of these
atrocities are so-called “left-wing” politicians and their followers (The
phrase “left wing” refers to the French parliament, where revolutionaries
sat on the left side of the speaker’s platform and “conservatives” sat on
the right side during the upheavals of 1789-1802).
It is evident in all the world’s
countries, from Europe to South America and elsewhere in the world, that those
who pretend to be “progressive” or “socialist” or “democrats” are
also anti-Jewish. That is as true in the United States as it is in all other
countries, such as Venezuela or Russia or Cuba.
In this country the Democrats
represent the “left” and reflect the same anti-Jewish sentiment as
elsewhere. Here are the facts:
Even as 78% of American
Jewish voters voted for the Democrats in the last election, only 31% of
Democrats sided with Israel in the latest effort to defend Israel against the
Gaza terrorists. This means that 69% of Democrats favor the terrorists who call
for the destruction of Israel. Yet,
62% of Republicans back Israel, as discovered by the Rasmussen poll.
Democrats ran into the streets in
recent weeks and with signs screaming “nuke Israel” and “kill the Jews”.
No doubt only a few extremists used such language. More important are the
results of public opinion polls taken over the last two years.
In 2006 all polls together revealed
that 72 percent of Republicans but only 47 percent of Democrats sided with
Israel or, conversely, a majority of Democrats support the Arab terrorists.
Another poll shows that 81 percent of
Republicans but only 43 percent of Democrats sympathize more with Israel than
the Arab nations, a difference of 38%.
In March of 2008 and again in December
of that year 84 percent of Republicans but only 55 percent of Democrats viewed
Israel as an ally of the United States , a difference of 29%.
The meaning of these differences is
clear. The Democrat government, elected by Jews and financed by large Jewish
contributions, will no doubt abandon the support of Israel as has been practiced
by successive American administrations since 1948. The signs of this are already
visible as George Mitchell, an Arab-American, has been assigned the special
ambassador to the region with an agenda of promoting the interests of the Arabs.
That interest is of course the destruction of Israel, if possible.
As the anti-Jewish agenda of the present administration develops there
will be at least some Jews who will object to such a policy. That in turn will
lead to the usual accusations of “double loyalty” against all Jews,
including those who financed and voted for the Democrats. Like the German Jews
of the 1920’s and the early 1930’s, the majority of the American Jewish
community pretends that their vote and their money and their influence in the
Democrat party will prevail. Nonsense. Jews are only 1.9% of the American
population, so small a percentage that we really don’t make a difference
except for the money the politicians can collect from us.
As for the Europeans, it is evident that the 1.6 million European Jews
cannot stay there. Already many French Jews have moved to Israel and thereby
defeat the haters as the population of Israel is increased by these migrants.
Our natural population increase is now at zero. We are 13 million in a world of
6 billion and are not growing at all. It would therefore be in our interest to
vote for those who support us. Instead we voted for those who seek to attack
Israel, create a crisis for the American Jewish community, and abandon the
principles on which our Constitution has rested these 224 years.
We Jews are our own enemies, as we confirm the words of Friedrich Hegel that “the only thing we learn from history is that we learn nothing from history.”
