President Trump is a German Jew
is not true. President Trump is an American Christian. However, the treatment
that he receives from the Democrats and from the media resembles the manner in
which we Jews were hated because we existed. Whatever we did or did not do was
cause to spread hate against us. That is exactly what is happening to President
Trump. Indeed he is a very wealthy man who can defend himself, while we Jews in
Nazi Germany were helpless. Of course, that makes a big difference to the
victim. However, the crazy hatred with which Democrats and the media denounce
everything President Trump says or does is exactly the same as the hate
propaganda of the Nazis against us. Those who deny this were not in Germany
during years of Nazi persecution.
reiterate that Trump is not the victim of murder, although several prominent
Democrats have said publicly that they would like to kill him.
fact that the president has the choice of ignoring or fighting back, options
which we did not have, does not excuse psychotic hatreds directed against him.
Trump is an American patriot who seeks to enhance this country and keep it safe.
He does everything he can day by day
“to make America great again” and he has done so much for the Jewish people
that Israel has designated a town in the Golan which will bear his name. Yet,
the majority of the Jewish community sides with our enemies in the media and in
Congress while denouncing our friends. The House of Representatives spends all
its time hating President Trump and none of its time dealing with our
immigration problem or a deteriorating infrastructure. It may not have occurred
to the Democrats that obstructing the president and spreading hatred against him
that can also apply to a future president who is a Democrat. What the Democrats
do to the Republican president today
will undoubtedly teach the Republicans that
the same hate can apply against a future Democrat president. I witnessed the
manner in which the Nazi party ranted against the duly elected German president
before Hitler won.
10 years before Hitler took over in January 1933, the agitation against the
democratically elected German government resembled exactly what is now being
done here. Spreading hate is dangerous even for the haters, who may very well
become the next target.
George Santayana wrote: “all we learn from history is that we learn nothing
from history.” Let us pray that at least the members of the Jewish contingent
in Congress will come to their senses and support those who support us instead
of being the leaders of the Trump haters, when in fact president Trump has done
more for the Jewish people in two and a half years than all the other presidents
