For a man who has made a career out of reminding the world that Jews are victims, he was unconscionably silent on the Trump Holocaust Remembrance Day statement.
Remember that statement? The one that didn’t mention the 6 million Jews that were systematically murdered by the Third Reich? The one that dog-whistled to neonazis, white supremacists, and anti-Semites all over the nation? The one that Weasel Kushner was also unimaginably mute about?
I’m not sure Netanyahu has taken it to heart that most American Jews can’t stand Trump. That 76% of professed Jews, including Zionist Jews such as myself, voted against the nascent dictator.
I wonder how Bibi’s feeling today, now that, seemingly on whim, Trump has reversed himself on the matter of Israeli settlements.Maybe Trump’s getting back at the American Jewish community for opposing him.
I hope that the hawkish Jews who voted for Trump finally realize that they can’t count on his support of Israel’s right. After the events of recent days, I can’t see why any of our allies would feel that they can count on Der GropenFuehrer. He has no core principles, other than his narcissism, and toadying to that is not even a guarantee of a good outcome. Just ask Chris Christie.
Feeling betrayed, Mr. Prime Minister?
Besides the fact that being a Jewish Republican is already an obscenity, Mr. Adelson’s wasted $5,000,000 bribe (a bribe is a gratuity given in advance with the expectation that a favor will be done) to the Gingrich campaign is an embarrassment to Tribe members everywhere. Adelson admittedly gives lot of money to lots of worthy causes, which anybody with that kind of money is obliged to do. But the Adelsons, who tout themselves as the “World’s Wealthiest Jewish Couple” on their own website, should consider what else they can do with that money that would promote the interests of World Jewry. $5,000,000 would put 16 kids through a Jewish day school from K-8. $5,000,000 would help synagogues be able to hire 200 Hebrew school teachers. $5,000,000 would send at least 1000 kids to Jewish summer camps (the proven #1 way to keep kids affiliated). $5,000,000 would make a nice donation to American Jewish World Services or any number of organizations that feel that it is their Jewish responsibility to go out and improve the world.
Yes, Israel relies on the United States for its existence. But bribing the Great Adulterous Marshmallow because Obama is supposedly a threat to Israel’s existence? Even the Wise Men of Chelm couldn’t have come up with this one.
