Jews dancing with Omar

Suddenly, a lapsed generation becomes Jewish in capital letters, but as partners for the other side

Turncoats, stop playing the Jewish Card, please

First let’s get this straight, that it is possible to be Jewish and anti-Semitic all at once, and all in the same person.  

It is no use arguing the fine points of linguistics or semantics when the proof of it is what see and hear every day. That makes it scientific. Not just my opinion.

The Jewish Card gives you no license…no license to go rogue and stab your people in the back.

By which I mean the type of man or woman who publicly takes sides against the Jewish people and without breaking stride, follows up with – “and I am Jewish.”

Jewish Pride from the dark side, and as if we need to be reminded that we are saddled with wicked sons.

Who asked? Who cares? Who needs to know? But you will be remembered to posterity, and not in a good way.

Like Korach… and after 3,800 years he can still be heard wailing, “Moses was right and I was wrong.”

As are these media mavens who support Omar (and her crowd), and vouch for the Democrats whose House anti-hate Resolution was a joke…except that it wasn’t funny.

The Jewish people were snubbed. We’re in danger. I shouldn’t have to spell it out.  

Islamophobia (and a hodgepodge of everything else) was given the same weight as anti-Semitism. Except that anti-Semitic acts account for 58 percent of all hate crimes.

You’d think a crisis like that would arouse our better instincts, and let’s assume, for peace of mind, that on that presumption we find most Jewish Americans.

We are the silent majority.

But that is not what appears on television.

That was Tammy Bruce, a non-Jew, who clashed with a “Jewish expert” on Fox News who was more worried about Islamophobia, which is at 18 percent on the scale of hate crimes.

Starting at the Revolutionary War, altogether some one million American Jews fought and thousands died on the battlefields in all wars in service for their beloved America.
I didn’t catch his name. He is a trend that is moving too fast to keep score. He is a pattern that justifies the Omars (and Tlaibs) in our midst. Says (as did Pelosi) that “she’s young…didn’t mean what she said…she’s still learning.” Poor baby. How naïve are we supposed to be, to believe that a nice chat over a Happy Meal at McDonald’s will undo all the poison she’s inherited from Somalia?

Where is the Jewish voice to warn her to handle with care the talk of dual loyalties? Starting at the Revolutionary War, altogether some one million American Jews fought and thousands died on the battlefields in all wars in service for their beloved America. Volumes attest to this. Now let's hear her people's contribution. History finds mostly blank pages. Not counting 9/11.

Yet here they come, one after another, the Progressives to make excuses for the kind of loose talk that has sunk our people generation to generation.

Then they salt it with their, “and I am Jewish” testimony.

I haven’t even checked CNN or the BBC for what Jewish turncoats they’ve attracted. Enough of them show up on Fox News as Jewish Stars Dancing with Omar.

Suddenly, a lapsed generation becomes Jewish in capital letters…but as partners for the other side. For Israel, they are nowhere to be found, except to fault Israel for its “policies.”

That is the escape mechanism for all anti-Semites, Jewish media mavens and otherwise.

The only Israeli policy I can think of is to protect the land and its people from annihilation. Got a problem with that? That’s a policy, it appears to me, that works in general for all other nations, and would be most sensible for Israel, a nation that knew the Holocaust, and sees no end to it, but more of it coming from all sides.

If you’re thinking Iran, the UN, the EU, Hamas, Hezbollah, the PA and Fatah, yes, plus worldwide BDS, again yes, but now they are coming for us here as well.

From Townhall this report that Ocasio-Cortez is fundraising to end the US-Israel special relationship…a special relationship that was firmly underscored by JFK, a Democrat…and to this day works both ways… if someone would remind these clueless critics that only a few months ago the United States purchased the Iron Dome System FROM Israel to protect OUR deployed troops.

So I’m speaking up – and I’m Jewish.
