For years, this blog has steadfastly maintained that the unrelenting criticism of Israel is the new Jew-hatred. This hatred comes from the international left, which in America now includes huge swaths of the Democrat Party.
Most recently, Barack Obama has institutionalized this anti-Zionism/Jew-hatred with his ghastly deal with the openly Jew-hating, genocidal-yearning Iranians.
Obama further made Jew-hatred acceptable when he instructed UN Rep. Samantha Power to make herself absent for Netanyahu’s most recent speech at the UN. Let us not forget that Power rose to academic fame with her book about genocide, “A Problem From Hell”.
Power has reserved herself a place in hell as a major player in the party that is enabling the IslamoNazis of Iran; the party that has turned Syria into a land of mass slaughter; the party that turns a blind eye to the rape of children in Afghanistan; the party that called the butchers of Islamic State a JV team.
Democrats turn language and meaning on its head when they claim that this deal is good for Israel. It’s a bit like the man who beats the crap out of his wife because, he claims, he loves her so much.
We should note three vital lessons from the Iranian deal.
- The Democrat Party is now officially anti-Israel. Through this deal the Democrats are funding Iranian terror operations. The Democrats are fully responsible for the oceans of innocent blood that will flow in the next few years, especially Jewish blood in the land of Israel.
- AIPAC is useless. I have many friends who are active in AIPAC. They are good people. They mean well. But they must recognize that their efforts to thwart the nuclear deal by lobbying congressional Democrats was a complete and utter failure. Obama outflanked them at every turn. It was not even close.
- Supporters of AIPAC must also come to grips with the fact that support of Israel is no longer a bi-partisan issue. This is a myth. The Republican party supports Israel. The Democrats are a radical left party that cannot even bring itself to declare Islamism as the enemy of civilization. Democrats prefer to dwell on the weather, which in typical Orwellian fashion they label: global warming/global freezing/climate change.
