It’s undeniable: Around the world, nationalism is on the march, and the media and reigning political elites would have you believe this is a dangerous disaster in the making. So, why is Yoram Hazony, author of The Virtue of Nationalism, unafraid? Watch to understand
This story should not be a surprise to anyone who has half a brain.
Linda Sarsour is a notorious Jew-hater. Thus, any cause with which she is associated can be assumed to be infected with the world’s oldest hatred.
Jew-hatred is an entire world view, a theory of everything. Jews are communists. Jews are capitalists. Jews are rootless. Jews are cosmopolitans. Jews killed Jesus. Jews enslaved blacks. Israel poisons Arab water. Israel steals Arab land. Jews secretly control the Federal Bank. Jews control the world. Jews are not real Jews, they are really… Khazars, Martians, fill in the blank.
And so on.
Thus, there is not a wide gulf—it’s really only a matter of style—between the poisonous Jew-hatred of Louis Farrakhan, Linda Sarsour, Tamika Mallory, Carmen Perez, and Mark Lamont Hill’s IslamoNazi UN rant, the silky intellectual anti-Zionism/Jew-hatred of Michelle Goldberg via (who else?) the New York Times, Jeremy Corbyn’s Labour Party, and the lunatic Jew-hatred spouted by newly elected Democrat congresswoman Ilhan Omar who tweeted: “Israel has hypnotized the world, may Allah awaken the people and help them see the evil doings of Israel.”
Jew-haters all, they obsessively structure their grand unifying theory around the foundational notion that the great problems in the world—pick one, any problem will do—could be and should be solved if it were not for the malignant presence of the Jew/Jewish State.
With so much that must be done at home in the United States, why does America send so much of its resources to Israel? It’s a fair question, but according to U.S. Gen Chuck Wald, America doesn’t spend enough on Israel. Watch to understand why.
Today is the first day of Chanukah.
And here is a timeless message from Simon the Maccabee:
“We have not taken a foreign land, nor did we take the property of others — for this is the inheritance of our fathers, which was for some time unjustly possessed by our enemies. But we, having the opportunity, returned to us the inheritance of our fathers.”
— First Book of the Maccabees, 15:33-34.
“לא ארץ נוכריה לקחנו ולא ברכוש זרים משלנו, כי אם נחלת אבותינו, אשר בידי אויבינו בעת מן העיתים בלא משפט נכבשה. ואנחנו כאשר הייתה לנו עת, הושיבונו נחלת אבותינו” (ספר מקבים א, טו’ לג-לד) [Read more…] about Chanukah 2018: Same Enemies, Same Conflicts
