A growing strain of Antisemitism threatens my America
A growing strain of Antisemitism threatens my America

Ilhan Abdullahi Omar of Minnesota, a Somalian by birth and Rashida Harbi Tlaib of Michigan, of Palestinian descent are the first two Muslim women ever to serve in the US Congress. They have been given carte blanche to do and spew anything they wish without any retribution or repercussions.

These two freshman Jew hating antisemites did not waste any time before attacking Israel and the Jewish people the moment they arrived at Capitol Hill.  Like their fellow Muslims, they consider Jews and Israel the sworn enemies of Islam. This hostility dates to the time of Muhammad’s own treatment of the Jews in Medina. At first, expediently, Muhammad called the Jews “people of the book,” and accorded them a measure of tolerance until he gained enough power to unleash his devastating wrath upon them because they would not convert.

“Israel has hypnotized the world,” Omar tweeted in 2012. “May Allah awaken the people and help them see the evil doings of Israel.”

For days, the Democrats struggled with whether or not to discipline lawmaker Ilhan Omar for her antisemitic views, arguing over whether Omar, one of two Muslim women in Congress, should be singled out, what other types of bias should be decried in the text and whether the party would tolerate opposing views on Israel. But they could not come up with a way to condemn her simply and that is because she is a Muslim. Muslims all over the world get a free pass simply because the elected officials are fearful of being labeled racist, even though Islam is not a race.

By granting Omar a free pass, the Democrat Party officially announced that using antisemitic diatribes will be tolerated at the highest level of the Democrat Party. Twenty-two Senate Democrats, including five presidential candidates, voted against legislation aimed at curbing the antisemitic boycott movement.

Antisemitic sentiment has always existed throughout the ages for no valid reason. However, this new strain of violent antisemitism is now widespread throughout the left, permeating well into the Democrat party’s lowest and highest echelons of their left-wing. It is a raw Jew-hatred that covers itself as “anti-Zionism.”

It appears antisemitism is being normalized at the top levels of government. Is it shocking that the hatred of Jews has seeped into academe where thousands of professors support the antisemitic boycott, divestment and sanctions (BDS) movement?

Many universities in the U.S. are bastions and incubators of Useful Idiots. Far left professors do more than teach their specialty subjects. They feel that they have license to pontificate on any and all matters. That is why they are called “professors.” These self-appointed prima donnas cover themselves with the shield of academic freedom. Academic freedom is like liberty-it can be abused often and abused greatly. That is the price of freedom. Yet, these abusers of freedom, the far left, will be among the first to be buried under the rubble of a free society’s collapse they work so doggedly to bring about.

An example: a university professor refused to write a letter of recommendation for his student, when he discovered she was planning to study in Israel.  Then, more than 1,000 of his colleagues signed a petition in his support which stated they would do the same thing. This is an unbelievable response and unconscionable in the extreme to witness such bigoted behavior on display at an American university. A faculty law professor has filed a complaint with the US Department of Education against Williams College Student Council for voting down recognition of the Williams Initiative for Israel pro-Israel group while it recognized the antisemitic and anti-Zionist Students for Justice in Palestine.

The Democrat Party has deliberately put America on a precarious path to losing its religious freedom, American values and so much more.
Social media has become a gutter filled with antisemitic websites, posts and comments that reinforce, encourage and publicize Jew-hatred. I personally have been banned by both twitter and Facebook for no reason at all except telling the truth and posting a picture of a Palestinian terrorist. There is no accountability whatsoever as to why Muslim terrorists and their fellow Democrats are free to say and post anything without any repercussions, but a conservative is banned or his account is closed for expressing his factual and accurate opinion.

We need responsible journalists and editors to oversee news and editorials and put an end to the anti-Israel or anti-Jewish, bias, much of which has antisemitic undertones.  We need to present the unfiltered facts. This step is long overdue.

This does not imply that Israel cannot be criticized, but it does mean that it should be covered with the same level of objectivity as other countries and that its actions be placed in historical and synchronous context.

To put it bluntly, the Democrat Party has officially joined with antisemitic groups all over the world.

The Democrat Party has deliberately put America on a precarious path to losing its religious freedom, American values and so much more.  We must reject these actions and be as vocal as possible to declare the current Democrat Party an adversary of the United States and our Constitution. Their racist and tacit actions against the Jewish people must be condemned at all levels.

The Democrat Party is no longer the party of JFK or Harry Truman. It has become the greatest threat to our national security and America’s survival as a nation.
