My fellow Jews in America STILL think that the Democratic Party is “for” Israel. I have always thought that my people are quite intelligent, but I must say that on this topic, something happens to their brains. I am not trying to be flippant about this. I really worry for them.
Most Jews in America are secular. They don’t attend synagogue – well, maybe on the high holy days, but that’s it. And they don’t care about Israel.
I have said this in other articles about my parents. I think this is a good illustration of what is going on. My mom was brought up in a secular Jewish home. She told me that she didn’t even believe in God.
My dad, on the other hand, was brought up Orthodox. He loved God and he loved Israel. He would send money to Israel every year starting in 1948. I think that he kept this from my mother, but he told me.
When I was born again in 1983, my parents were not overjoyed (that’s putting it mildly) but they accepted it. It was my dad through the years whom I would write about my becoming a Christian. I sent him “Betrayed” by Stan Telchin. It’s a great book for witnessing to Jewish people. My mom wanted nothing to do with this. And my Conservatism really sent her over the edge.
When my parents moved to Melbourne, FL and he was receiving my letters, he began to watch Billy Graham whenever he was on TV. My mother was so distraught. She would tell me that she thought dad lost his mind. I would just smile.
The Lord allowed me the honor of leading my dad to Jesus on the last night of his life.
Self Hating Jews
It’s truly a phenomenon that I have tried to understand for many years. Perhaps these self-haters, realizing that the Jews have been persecuted for centuries, thought that if they pulled away from Judaism and even spoke against Israel, then maybe they would blend into the crowd and be accepted.
Anti Semitism is widespread and has always been. And when you have a last name like Rosenberg, Feinberg, Levin, etc – you are branded as one of those trouble making Jews. There is just no getting away from it.
Blaming Trump for increased Anti Semitism
Self hating Jews believe that Trump’s affection for PM Netanyahu and Israel has poured oil on the fire and therefore has increased hatred for Jews in America. This angers me – I just have to say it.
We sat under Israel-hating Obama for 8 grueling years and during his second run in 2012, my Jewish people still voted for him by a large majority! They saw how he treated Netanyahu when Bibi came to speak to our Congress. These people couldn’t have cared less about his speech before Congress. I think that many of them were embarrassed.
Many American Jews Blame Donald Trump for Rising Anti-Semitism, Survey Finds
A new survey finds that 73 percent of American Jews feel “less secure” in the U.S. than two years ago.
According to CBN News, most American Jews in the study pointed to President Donald Trump as the reason why they felt there had been an increase in Anti-Semitic attacks in the country.
Some 60 percent of American Jews believe Trump “bears at least some responsibility” for recent deadly attacks, and 71 percent disapprove of how the president has handled those attacks on Jews.
When asked about the 2020 presidential election, only 23 percent of American Jews said they would vote for Trump.
The study comes from the Jewish Electorate Institute and included 1,000 Jewish-American voters. The JEI is non-partisan.
The survey also said that American Jews value domestic policy over policies related to Israel when it comes to selecting a presidential candidate. Health care is the highest policy priority for the group, while Israel is the lowest.
“Overall, the Jewish community continues to identify as strongly pro-Israel and views the Democratic Party as pro-Israel, but Israel remains the lowest policy priority when determining which candidate to support,” the poll report says.
The JEI’s survey comes just after a string of intentionally set fires at Jewish community centers in Chicago. Police say the three fires at Jewish community centers earlier this month were deliberately set and are being investigated as hate crimes. source
When I read this passage of Scripture, I have always been confused as to exactly what this means:
“Behold, I will make them of the synagogue of Satan, which say they are Jews, and are not, but do lie; behold, I will make them to come and worship before thy feet, and to know that I have loved thee” ( Revelation 3:9) KJV
I would alway wonder just who Jesus was talking about here. I started to think that perhaps He was talking about these kind of Jews – the self haters. I still am not sure, especially the part that says “I will make them to come and worship before thy feet, and to know that I have loved thee.” Maybe this could be related to when Paul spoke about the Christians bringing Jews to jealousy. I just don’t know.
But I do know that the Jewish people voting for Democrats is “meshuganah” and if you don’t know what that means, it’s “crazy” in Yiddish!
