There are too many, OK even one would be bad, radical Leftist Jewish groups calling themselves “pro-Israel” while their policies support the delegitimization and dismantling of the State of Israel.
Here in Israel there’s “Peace Now,” as if “peace” is s commodity that one can just buy for a price. And there are those women’s groups that harass soldiers who are too polite or confused to arrest them.
Internationally there’s BDS, as insidious as a group can be, trying to attack Israel’s economy, even though many, or most for sure, of the businesses they target employ the very same Arabs they claim to support.
And there’s J Street, the darling of the American Left, like Obama, the Clintons etc.
|American Protesters’ Cause Isn’t Clear to Israel|
It used to be that American pro-Israel Jewry, Right, Left and Center, could unite around groups like AIPAC, but the anti-Israel element in American Jewish society has been getting bolder. They’re beginning to remove their “pro-Israel” disguises and revealing their essence, allowing the world to see the truth. They are pro-Arab, pro-Palestine and do not accept the legitimacy of the State of Israel and Zionism.
It’s now a half a century since the 1967 Six Days War, which was a war for the very survival of the State of Israel. Today it’s only my generation and older who remember the war and the tension and threats that led to it.
- Egypt, Syria, Iraq and Jordan allied against Israel under the leadership of Abdel Nasser of Egypt.
- Nasser demanded that the United Nations remove its peacekeeping forces from the Suez Canal, and the UN complied.
- Nasser announced that he was going to destroy the State of Israel, pushing it into the sea.
- And the world was silent.
