Jewish Self-Destruction


Commentary by Dr. Gerhard Falk



In 2020, a report by Pew Research showed that there were then about 7.5 million Americans who could be identified as Jews. They constituted 2.6% of the American population.  Fifty-two percent of these “Jews” considered themselves atheists. The birth rate of the Jewish community was then and still remains about 1.4 per woman aged 15 to 35.

Most recently, the intermarriage rate of Jews with non-Jews has reached 71%, with few children raised as Jews, so that the next generation will be lost to the Jewish community.

On a list of 25 issues, the majority of American Jews ranked the survival of Israel last.

These facts may be compared to the Muslim American population. Muslims are the fastest growing religion in America and are best known for their extreme hatred of all Jews.

In 2021, there are 3.5 million Muslims living in the United States. Most are recent immigrants or children of immigrants. Currently numerous Muslims arrive in America every day, so that it is reasonable to assume that in a short time the Muslim population will equal in size the Jewish population in this country. About 100,000 Muslims arrive in the USA each year.

The birth rate of American Muslims is 2.4 per woman aged 15-35, while the Jewish birth rate is only 1.4. The overall American replacement rate is 2.1.

Sixty percent of American Muslims are 18-39 years old. Only 38 percent of all Americans, including Jews, are 18-39 years old.

All of these statistics show that before long Muslims will outnumber Jews in America. Therefore the interests of Muslims will be given far more credence by our politicians than the interests of American Jews. Furthermore, history reveals that American Jews consistently vote for the Democrats, who are the principal supporters of anti-Jewish hate in this country. A real example was Adlai Stevenson, who ran for president as a Democrat in 1952 and 1956. Stevenson was an outspoken Jew baiter of his day, yet received 60% of the Jewish vote. The winner of the presidency in those years was Eisenhower.  Jews in large numbers voted for Franklin Roosevelt, who deliberately lowered the immigration quota for German Jews to a minimum, so that few German Jews were able to escape the Nazi holocaust. Roosevelt went so far as to refuse a ship of German Jewish refugees to land in this country although the ship had only 900 Jews aboard. Roosevelt called an international meeting at Evian in France to discuss how many German Jews each county would allow to enter. He instructed the American delegation that not one, not even one Jew would be allowed to enter here. Therefore the whole world refused the entry of the persecuted German Jews who, for the most part, died in the Nazi gas ovens.

Rabbi Steven Wise, president of several Jewish organizations in Roosevelt’s day, was invited by FDR to the White House . Roosevelt urged Wise to induce the New York Jews to vote for him. He also told Wise not to mention the German Jews. Wise therefore campaigned for Roosevelt and went so far as to write and declare that “The German Jews are exaggerating their persecution. Catholics and Protestants are also persecuted.” That was a lie. Catholics and Protestants did the persecuting.

Now, in 2021, the Jewish community again voted for the incompetent Biden. This can lead to a major assault on the Jewish community, when a majority of Americans become fed up with our surrender to the “Taliban” terrorists and all the other miseries Biden has brought down on us. Indeed, Biden has appointed numerous Jews to high offices in his administration. Again the majority of Jews voted for the Democrats. Therefore it is not unreasonable to presume that millions of Americans who voted for Donald Trump will blame the Jews for the debacle now facing this country.

Donald Trump is the best friend Israel ever had in the White House. Yet American Jews blindly rejected him in favor of those who are both incompetent and who harbor every religious bigot in America.

The outcome may be foreseen. When the day of reckoning comes, those who voted for the anti-American Democrats will be blamed. Blaming Jews is an old tradition. May Shem Yisborach prove me wrong lest another exodus becomes our fate once again.

Shalom u’vracha.
