Note to a Progressive-Left Facebook Friend

The Dems and Left, has taken something worthy and noble, the Civil Rights Movement, and turned it into a bludgeon with which to silence alternative viewpoints or bully people into political submission

Nine Reasons Why Progressives Do Not Understand Their Pro-Israel Friends

Here are 9 fundamental misunderstandings the progressive Left has with Israel and its supporters.

Morte

American politics has been so 'toxically' partisan for so long it has become virtually impossible to separate fair assessments of truth from media-driven propaganda favoring the Democratic Party.

The Transgressions of the Filthy-Footed

Arabs consider Jewish sovereignty on historically Jewish land an abomination before Muhammad & Allah

The Day of the Dhimmi is Done

For 1300 years Jews lived as dhimmis sub-class non-citizens under the boot of Arab-Muslim imperial rule. With an Israel Hater out and Trump in it's time for Israel and the Jewish people to declare the days of desperate Jewish solicitude are over.

The Failure of Jewish Self-Esteem in the West (or Have Pen, Will Grovel)

The indignant reaction of Obama, the Democratic Party, and the western-left to Jews daring to build housing in YESHA is medieval. Then, as now, authorities believed Jews must comply to their demands

Focusing on the Wrong Things, and Where Attention Should be Paid

The PA does NOT have to reject terrorism. What it must do is harder: Accept a definition of terrorism that does not change depending on the identity of the perpetrator or the identity of the victim.

Pity the anti-Zionist Snowflake

It is not merely that today's university infantalizes students, but that the students infantalize themselves when they go into "safe" rooms, sometimes containing coloring books and stuffed animals.

The Democratic Party has Tuned Out the Jihad… if it Ever Tuned it in...

Many Americans did not really know the actual reason why Ohio State University Jihad attack happenned because they simply don't care about Islamic theological violence against their fellow Americans.

Is it Racist to Oppose Fascism of Color?

The defenders of political Islam, and mass Muslim immigration into the West, need to stop confusing Muslims with jihadis and they need to stop conflating opposition to political Islam with racism.

Rosenthal’s Ten Propositions: Part II

The penalties for those who seek to murder Jews within Israel must be harsh enough to seriously discourage the idea that it is perpetually Jew Killing Season among Arabs.

Hijab Cool

Sadly, the ideal of ethnic and gendered diversity has been replaced on the illiberal progressive-left by multicultural fragmentation and identity politics as represented by the hijab

The Trump Nudge

So long as the Arabs believe they have a reasonable claim to the City of David they will never stop pushing or sending their children into the streets with knives. So long as they believe that Jerusalem is up-for-grabs then they will consider the whole shebang up-for-grabs.

Being Crazy does not Mean Being a Terrorist…Maybe

The great irony is that the attack in Nice may be the one that actually is NOT a terror attack it may be that Bouhlel is simply stone cold crazy and may have nothing whatsoever to do with Jihad

Thoughtless Bandwagons of Hatred

So long as the Arabs see that even the US refuses to relocate its embassy to Jerusalem then they understand that the Jewish State remains vulnerable because its international support is flaccid.

The Reem’s Protest in Oakland is Doomed

Our enemies--whether on the Temple Mount or in San Francisco--are not opposed to using violence, quite obviously, in order to support their anti-Jewish agenda.

Linda Sarsour, Progressive-Left Ideals, and Diaspora Jewry

Two of the most significant political questions in the West today are immigration policy and identity politics. Linda Sarsour, stands at the crux of both and poses a dilemma for pro-Israel world Jewry

From Exodus to Munich: A Response to Forest Rain

"Soft" anti-Zionists on the western-left honestly believe that Arabs seek to murder Jews because we are mean. Israel is mean. The Jews are, as a matter of schadenfreude, are the New Nazis.

I am Free from Reem’s Racist Stupidity!

There are plenty of self-identified progressives and "liberals" who are, indeed, great friends of the Jewish people and of Israel. but the obvious fact is that the western-left, generally, is unfriendly toward Israel.

The Dhimmi That Got Away

The never-ending Arab-Muslim war against Jews has nothing to do with Jewish mistreatment of Arabs but everything to do with the Qur'anic religious imperative to keep "unbelievers" under submission

Mensch on the Bench

America's 'National Pastime' is quickly becoming the 'Promised Land's' national pastime with Israel's squad surprising success in the World Baseball Classic. GO JEW CREW!

Social Media Notes # 2

Israel most certainly can exist despite decreasing American Jewish friendship, although it would obviously be more difficult. Thankfully, American Jewry is not abandoning Israel.

Jews Should Walk Away

The truth is - much to my ongoing horror and disgust - the Democratic Party can kick around Jews from now until Yom Kippur and we will still pound on their doors to give them our money, our votes, and our support.

How Obama Cracked Jewish Solidarity

Obama will likely be known in the Jewish world as the US president who, whatever his honest intentions, did more than any to divide the Jewish people from one another and from the Jewish state.

Facebook Notes # 1

The place to start making the Jewish claim to Israel - if I may be so bold - is with insisting upon our indigeneity to our own ancestral lands.
