Progressives Push Blatant Anti-Semitic Propaganda–Now Jewish-Americans are Paying the Price

AMAC Exclusive

jewish

Late last week, Israel and Hamas agreed to a cease-fire that, as of Monday, appears to be holding. Over 250 Israelis and Palestinians, mostly civilians were killed during the 11 days of hostility. But the fallout from this conflict is reaching far beyond the Middle East.

Across America and much of the developed world, incidents of violence against the Jewish people have skyrocketed. In the last two weeks alone, almost thirty anti-Semitic attacks have taken place in the United States.

In Los Angeles, a group of restaurant diners were attacked by a mob of pro-Palestinians who threw bottles and shouted, “Dirty Jew” while pummeling a man in the street. In Arizona, a synagogue attended by former Arizona Rep. Gabby Giffords had its door smashed in by vandals. Alarmingly, a 55-year-old woman in New York was wounded when a group of pro-Palestinian protesters threw fireworks into a crowd of people. Last week, a freelance reporter for CNN was fired after he was found to have tweeted out, “The World Today Needs a Hitler.” On Monday, the BBC announced it was investigating one of its digital journalists over an old tweet. The tweet in question: “Hitler Was Right. IDF Go to Hell.”

Now that the immediate conflict in the Holy Land has ebbed, some television networks and elite opinion-makers have expressed support for Jewish communities. However, the overwhelming majority of mainstream media coverage is aggressively asserting that Israel is in the wrong.

MSNBC hosts Ali Velshi and Joy-Ann Reid outright accused Israel of engaging in “Apartheid, Ethnic Cleansing, and Human Rights Violations.” Fox News commentator Geraldo Rivera said: “The United States of America is providing Israel many of the weapons Israel is using today to kill Palestinian civilians without even demanding a ceasefire…that makes us complicit in an ongoing crime against humanity.”

Arguably one of the most inflammatory responses came from liberal commentator and former comedian John Oliver who aggressively implied that feeling sympathy or anger over Israeli deaths was wrong simply because more Palestinians died than did Israelis.

Glaringly absent from all of these “hot takes” was any mention of the terrorist pseudo-state Hamas and the role of Hamas in encouraging civilian deaths. Hamas has explicitly stated that all Israeli settlers are legitimate military targets. In fact, over the course of the conflict, terrorist groups, led by Hamas, fired an estimated 4,350 rockets into Israel. Though the Iron Dome intercepted more than 90%, their explicit targets were high population centers across Israel. The majority of the rockets were also launched from high population areas, ensuring that innocent civilians would be caught in the crossfire one way or the other. But why would any terror group welcome the deaths of its own civilians whom it ostensibly exists to protect?

The Pakistani Foreign Minister may have inadvertently revealed the truth. In a recent interview on CNN, Pakistani Foreign Minister Shah Mahmood Qureshi seemed pleased with the recent civilian deaths of Palestinians when he identified what he believes was the consequence of those innocent victims: “Israel is losing out…. they’re losing the media war.”

In Congress, multiple Democrat leaders also placed the blame on Israel for the recent violence.  Rep. Rashida Talib accused Israel of a “sustained campaign of harassment and terror by Israeli police.” Last December, she was heavily criticized for sharing a tweet with the message: “From the River to the Sea, Palestine Will Be Free.” This message is a Hamas slogan used by that terrorist organization to claim Israel is an illegitimate state and needs to be annihilated for Palestinians to be free. The same Hamas slogan was shouted by protesters in Brooklyn this past week.

Over the weekend, the New York Times suggested that Israel, by permitting a private company to evict several tenants in the Sheikh Jarrah neighborhood, gave “Hamas an excuse to fire rockets or lone-wolf attackers grievances to channel into killings by knives or automobiles.”

Such formulations are making clear that for much of the progressive left and the media and some Congressional Democrats, their hatred of Israel is lurking just beneath the surface. In the heat of last week’s armed conflict, this smoldering animus has given way to an open anti-Semitism that is leading to new waves of attacks against Jews across America.

I condemn but understand the legacy hatred of the Jews by people from native Arab and Islamic nations. It is an inherited hatred with, for most, no personal reason for it. For the life of me, however, I don’t get why any American would hate the Jews. What is their beef with Israel? Israel is modern, progressive, clean, well-educated nation that doesn’t initiate these attacks. That they have better offensive and defensive weapons is well-known. If the Arabs are lesser armed and still foolish enough to try to take out a Boulder by throwing eggs at it, well…there is no accounting for stupid. Dumb moves have consequences. Militarily, Israel is a country not even the US should take lightly in military might.

Why is it then that most American Jews vote Democrat and are anti-Israel?

What most people don’t know or want to know is that Israel belongs to the Jews ( Israelis). God gave that land to them a long time ago. Read the Bible. They( Jews) are. God’s chosen people. Gillie vaisa

But even if they weren’t, they are the occupiers and owners of the land, going much further back than the Muslim periods of occupation. What was won by Arabs from those early wars was won back by wars. That’s how it works, folks.

It is painful to say this, but American Jews deserve this wakeup call.They have been voting for and contributing to the election campaigns of anti-semitic, Marxist/Socialist Democrats my entire life and now they are reaping what they have sown.Interestingly enough, even non-religious Jews that thought they could “disavow” their heritage will be punished by the anti-semitic, Marxist/Socialist Democrats and Obama Muslims for simply being Jewish.American Jewish will soon tealize why the Founding Fathers included the 2nd Amendment in the Bill of Rights and that Biden is going to be an eager and willing advocate of anti-semitism.

thought they could “disavow” their heritage”. They can no more ‘relinquish’ their Jewish blood than a Person of Color or a person of no color can ‘relinquish’ the amount of melanin that biologically manifests through their outer layer of skin. God knows and will judge accordingly when the time comes. ALL people will be judged by GOD on “the content of their character” and never by superficial or innate characteristics of their mortal human bodies or bloodlines. That was the very meaning of MLK’s “Dream” speech. We should, to the best of our inferior human ability, judge others as we will be judged by God. And, when someone is found wanting, forgive as we would like to be forgiven.

It is apparent that many Democrats, and those affiliated with them, are anti-semites. Look at the Biden administration and the left media efforts to turn around the fact that Hamas and Palestine attacked Israel with thousands of missiles, saying that Israel attacked Palestine. Look at how much of what has happened after the Democrats stole the 2020 election is similar to what happened in Nazi Germany during Hitler’s control. How the Nazis took over control of the news, disarmed the public, burned books, forced military service on most, formed the Youth Corp who were taught to spy on, and report their parents, labeled and demoralized a whole race of people, stole their property and valuables, and eventually exterminated them. Well today free speech is censored, laws are being proposed to prevent the current powers from losing elections (after criminally stealing our 2020 election), the move by Biden to confiscate our guns, how Conservatives are being labeled as racists, liers, and deplorables, the forcing of lies and revised history in our schools, mainstream media is printing lies as truth, and calling truth lies. Does this sound familiar? Does this remind you of what happened in Nazi Germany? It does me, I am approaching my 90th birthday, and observed all of the Socialist/Communist/Fascist period going on in the world. And I am seeing the beginning of the rise of it here, now.

Since no one under the age of 40 in America has ever been taught ANY of what you and I know, they believe every lie they hear as the gospel truth. They were also taught to dismiss ANY information coming from anyone but their propagandists just as they do in EVERY totalitarian/communist country in the world, N. Korea, Cuba, China, Russia, et. al. Until, or unless, conservatives and the truth are allowed into the educational/media/tech distribution arena, they will NEVER learn the truth before it is too late to prevent their complete subjugation and subservience.

Before my NYC Jewish mother passed away I asked her why Jews vote for Democrats. The answer: During the Depression, when you needed work to put food on the table, you went to a local Democratic party official and you got a menial job to make ends meet. Sound familiar? Give them money and they will vote. They never stopped voting Democratic, even when FDR refused to help Jews in Europe before before the start of WWII. We all know how that went…

Another thing… Remember Goebbels, Hitler’s Minister of Propaganda? He was correct when he said you tell the big lie often enough and it becomes the truth!!

American Jews vote Democrat, and seem to dislike the Jews in Israel. In my opinion the Jews in Israel (our best ally in the middle east) are more respectable than the Jews in America.

They have their own share of self-hating, non-observant Jews within Israel also.

If memory serves me correctly, Israel took Gaza after the 1967 war and then ceded it along with much of the West Bank to the Palestinians as a peace initiative a few years later. What that has proved is that your cannot ever expect peace with a crocodile. You must destroy it before it destroys you.

Our ‘esteemed’ (NOT!) Attorney General, Merrick Garland, has definitively stated he only has the money and personnel to pursue Trump, his family and as many of his 80 million supporters as is humanly possible and he won’t stop until they are ALL bankrupted, incarcerated, dead and/or successfully de-programmed. No other crimes will be worthy of his, and the Dept. of (in)Justice’, attention during his tenure. Don’t hold your breath waiting for him to go after any real terrorists (BLM/ANTIFA) or real criminals (Hunter Biden & “the Big Guy”, Hilary Clinton, John Kerry). John Durham’s ‘report’, if it’s ever even written, will never see the light of day. I believe he’s just trying to milk the system for as long as he can to wring every last drop of taxpayer money out of it before he quietly shuts the operation down and fades into the comfort of his well padded retirement. So much for his ‘impeccable’ reputation.

I read a recent interview with Sacha Baron Cohen (English comedian; he’s known for the Borat movies) who criticized Twitter’s CEO for fostering anti-Semitic views. Sacha Baron Cohen has very liberal views and sees himself as one of the good guys; ironically, those same views have put him in ‘bed’ with the very people who are encouraging anti-Semitism. Bigots do not recognize ‘the good guy Jews’ from ‘the bad guy Jews’ (whatever that means). They don’t care. Recently, my son met up with young gamers online who recognized Jewish sounding names and are attacking those people verbally. Some are attempting to stereotype a Jewish ‘look’. (Sound familiar?) I hear people saying we’ve ‘evolved’. We’re woke. We are working toward a Utopia. I say bull hockey! We now have high-tech helping bigots push their hate. The human race is full of sin–always has been, always will be. ‘Utopia’ is a place where you get rid of everyone and everything that you don’t like or makes you uncomfortable. These ‘liberals’ will attempt to do what needs to be done to achieve that. No matter who Baron Cohen thinks he is, he will still be a target.

Agree…and, unfortunately our American Jews have accomplished the same thing for themselves, lying in “bed” with those who now attack them. A tremendous number of American Jews have, for decades, voted for Democrat liberalism.

Some of my distant family members joined a large religious (pseudo biblical) cult. Utopia was the goal. It didn’t last past one generation. Reality is an untamable beast.
