However, if in the 1980s and 1990s the American Left opposed nuclear proliferation and zero-sum political stances, today it has embraced both.
The American Left, and the Obama administration, support an Iranian Jihadi bomb and a zero-sum effort against the Jews of the Middle East.
They may have opposed nuclear proliferation in the United States during the middle-end of the twentieth-century, but they definitely favor Iranian nuclear proliferation under the Ayatollahs in the beginning of the twenty-first-century. They opposed a zero-sum resolution in the Cold War between the United States and the Soviet Union, but often favor a zero-sum resolution in the Long Arab War Against the Jews.
Phases of the Long Arab War Against the Jews in the Middle East:
Phase 1, 1920 – 1947: Riots and Massacres
Phase 2, November 1947 – April 1948: The Civil War in Palestine
Phase 3, 1948 – 1973: Conventional Warfare
Phase 4, 1964 – Present: The Terror War
Phase 5, 1975 – Present: The Delegitimization Effort
The Arab war in the Middle East against the Jewish minority is a zero-sum conflict.
The hostile Arab majority outnumber the beseiged Jews by a factor of 60-70 to 1. The extent to which the Western-left accepts anti-Semitic anti-Zionism as part of its larger coalition is the extent to which it accepts zero-sum resolutions to problems. There is no amicable compromise between the anti-Zionist Left and the Jewish people. Anti-Zionism represents the Arab-Muslim effort to undermine and eliminate Israel and BDS is its Western-left outpost.
So long as “liberals” and Democrats provide venues for anti-Semitic anti-Zionists of the type that promote BDS, then they are engaging in a zero-sum aggression against the Jewish people as a whole. So long as “liberals” and Democrats enable an Iranian nuclear weapons program, then they are twisting a Rubik’s Bomb that quite possibly will go off in their faces… and ours, as well.
