It’s one thing to criticize Israel. It’s another thing entirely to be against the very existence of the Jewish state. In this clarifying video, Dennis Prager defines the difference and explains why anti-Zionism and anti-Semitism are one and the same.
You would think that with Jew-haters Ilhan Omar, Rashida Tlaib and Alexandra Octavio-Cortez already so prominent in the liberal media the Democrat party—but I repeat myself—would, y’know, tread lightly with their obvious tolerance for the world’s oldest hate.
But you would be wrong.
The Democrats invited a well known Jew-hater, Omar Suleiman, to give the Ramadan invocation at the House of Representatives.
In short, the Democrats have doubled down on their legitimization of Jew-hatred.
From Commentary magazine by Abe Greenwald:
Disease is reversible—rot isn’t. Representatives Ilhan Omar and Rashida Tlaib brought the disease of anti-Semitism into the upper echelons of the Democratic Party when they were elected in November. The party could have fought the disease. It chose instead to nurture it. And that’s when the irreversible rot set in.
The rot explains why Democrats, from Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi on down, are vigorously defending Tlaib’s recent lies about Arabs welcoming Jews after the Holocaust. It doesn’t matter what Tlaib or Omar say, how blunt their Jew-hatred is, or how often it’s aired. A defense pact is already in place that covers all calumnies against the Jews. Both the Democratic leadership and the liberal media establishment will back these bigots against any and all charges of anti-Semitism in return for smooth relations with the social-justice left. It’s a monstrous deal made by people too weak to defend their party and speak the truth.
Jew-hatred is a fact of life.
As we recite in in the Passover Hagaddah, “In every generation they rise to destroy us…”
In America, Jew-hatred comes from two distinct groups: a small but dangerous group of white nationalists. But overwhelmingly Jew-hatred comes from the intersectional Progressive left. The Democrat Party has institutionalized Jew-hatred by refusing to condemn pathological Jew-haters Ilhan Omar and Rashida Tlaib. In fact, Democrat partisans embrace these two racists.
It worth noting that not one Democrat politician running for POTUS made a statement of support for Israel when the IslamoNazis in Gaza lobbed 698 missiles at civilian targets in Israel last week murdering four, injuring 234 and traumatizing thousands of innocent children.
Not surprisingly, Omar and Tlaib tweeted support of the IslamoNazis.
Of course, Jew-hatred has been part of the leftist DNA since the birth of modern Socialism.
As Karl Marx wrote:
What is the worldly religion of the Jew? Huckstering. What is his worldly God? Money.…. Money is the jealous god of Israel, in face of which no other god may exist. Money degrades all the gods of man – and turns them into commodities…. The bill of exchange is the real god of the Jew. His god is only an illusory bill of exchange…. The chimerical nationality of the Jew is the nationality of the merchant, of the man of money in general.
Victor Davis Hanson unwraps Progressive Jew-hatred which intersects with Islamist Jew-hatred which intersects with black Jew-hatred.
The New York Times International Edition recently published an anti-Semitic cartoon of a dachshund with the face of Benjamin Netanyahu. The composite animal was leading a hunched Donald Trump who had on dark sunglasses, as if blind, and a yarmulke.
Almost immediately, everyone pointed out that the theme of doglike Jews pulling along their clueless befuddled blinded “Aryan” masters was a favorite in Hitler’s Germany. The theme, style, and imagery of the cartoon might have trumped what was often published in Der Stürmer, the Nazi megaphone of propagandist Julius Streicher. The latter was hanged after the Nuremberg Trials for two decades of fomenting the Jew hatred that helped lead to the Holocaust.
Stranger still, at first the New York Times merely explained how the sick cartoon got published in its international edition, but without an apology for its publication. Its subsequent second-try mea culpa was rendered a pathetic joke when, a few days later, the paper published yet another incoherent anti-Semitic cartoon of a Benjamin Netanyahu, this time as some sort of blind Moses with selfie stick in one hand and a stone tablet with the Star of David in the other, as he descends from Mount Sinai.
