US-Israel: Cat Out of the Bag

Trump prostituted Himself to the Israel lobby and he didn't get Jewish love at the voting booth ... Donald just doesn't get it ....

Donald Trump says more American Jews should have voted for him | JPost |

Donald Trump is still trying to figure out why more American Jews didn't vote for him, arguing in a haredi Orthodox magazine interview this week that they "don't love Israel enough" and the Israel-related moves he made as president should have earned him a larger share of the Jewish vote.

"You know what really surprised me?" Trump told Ami Magazine. "I did the Heights, I did Jerusalem, and I did Iran -- the Iran Deal was a disaster, right?


And I also did many other things. Jewish people who live in the United States don't love Israel enough. Does that make sense to you? I'm not talking about Orthodox Jews. I believe we got 25% of the Jewish vote, and it doesn't make sense. It just seems strange to me."

Trump referred to his decisions to recognize Israel's sovereignty over the Golan Heights, to recognize Jerusalem as Israel's capital and move the American embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem, and to pull out of the Iran nuclear deal, which Israel's government loathes.

Trump Meets Putin

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has made repeated visits to Russia in an effort to persuade Putin use its influence in Syria to remove all Iranian forces from near the Golan Heights, the latest of which took place last week in a trip to Moscow during the World Cup.

'Negation of the diaspora' as Zionist antisemitism

Not again. Every generation seems to think that they have discovered Zionist antisemitism for themselves. Here is Lord Montagu back in 1917.

Memorandum of Edwin Montagu on the Anti-Semitism of the Present (British) Government - Submitted to the British Cabinet, August 1917

I have chosen the above title for this memorandum, not in any hostile sense, not by any means as quarrelling with an anti-Semitic view which may be held by my colleagues, not with a desire to deny that anti-Semitism can be held by rational men, not even with a view to suggesting that the Government is deliberately anti-Semitic; but I wish to place on record my view that the policy of His Majesty's Government is anti-Semitic in result will prove a rallying ground for Anti-Semites in every country in the world.

This view is prompted by the receipt yesterday of a correspondence between Lord Rothschild and Mr. Balfour.

Zionism has always seemed to me to be a mischievous political creed, untenable by any patriotic citizen of the United Kingdom. If a Jewish Englishman sets his eyes on The Mount of Olives and longs for the day when he will shake British soil from his shoes and go back to agricultural pursuits in Palestine, he has always seemed to me to have acknowledged aims inconsistent with British citizenship and to have admitted that he is unfit for a share in public life in Great Britain, or to be treated as an Englishman.

Populism and Nazi Symbols

It is offensive for all and unbearable for the Jewish community.

The portrayal is a demonstration of fascism, not democracy. See Thierry Baudet the populist entente terrible of Dutch society.

Not original, see earlier protests in populist  dictatorships across Europe ...

Every free citizen has the right to protest. But this form is tacky and deeply offensive. He deserves only contempt.

What about the leadership of the Jewish State of Israel?
