Today's Anti-Semitism is Coming From the Left

In this modern world political labels and intolerance are nothing like they once were. As I've written many times, Liberals are not at all liberal in the true meaning of the word.

open to new behavior or opinions and willing to discard traditional values.
"they have more liberal views toward marriage and divorce than some people"

(of education) concerned mainly with broadening a person's general knowledge and experience, rather than with technical or professional training.

"a liberal education"

  • There is a total lack of flexibility and a rigid worship of the latest in Liberal dogma/, which they consider the early 21st Century utopian ideology. Many of these dogmas, including Palestine replacing Israel, rejection of standard religious belief/practice, many of which are in John Lennon's iconic "Imagine." And if one dares to question the logic or historic fact in any of these principles or leaders, one is condemned as racist, fascist and even, most ironically, antisemitic.

If you want to hear anti-semitic rhetoric in an American political party, listen to what the Democrats are saying. Remember that Keith Ellison lost the chairmanship by a hair and was compensated by Perez who... "offered the newly created position of 'deputy chair' to Ellison, which Ellison accepted." (

The non-Traditional, anti-Torah values Jews of J Street are held as the epitome of Jewish tradition, values and pro-Israel policy.

The international media and academia promote their philosophy and muzzle any who dare to disagree.

PA depicts a world without Israel
The Palestinian Authority makes no attempt to educate its people towards peace and coexistence with Israel. On the contrary, from every possible platform it repeatedly rejects Israel's right to exist, presents the conflict as a religious battle for Islam, depicts the establishment of Israel as an act of imperialism, and perpetuates a picture of the Middle East, both verbally and visually, in which Israel does not exist at all. Israel's destruction is said to be both inevitable and a Palestinian obligation. (PMW)

Here in Israel we keep on hearing that the Arab terrorists are "just like us," and everything will be humdinging fine "when they get a state." The fact that they celebrate terrorism, even when it includes the death of their own terrorist family members, is ignored, because it doesn't fit their ideology. And of course the lack of peace here in this tiny part of the world is blamed on Israeli intransigence and the "settlements."

Please don't forget that support for a Palestinian state and blaming Israel for the lack of peace are mainstays of Leftist ideology. It is davka the Right, the so-called "conservatives" who understand Israel's dilemma and security needs. We do have a religious problem with many Right wing Christians who would like to convert us, but they aren't pro-Arab like the Left wing is.

I hope I'm not preaching to the converted here and that those who consider themselves pro-Israel and pro-Jews, good Jews and "liberals" will read this and think a bit. Please be truly liberal and not dogmatically Liberal.
