As a Jew, I am appalled at the hate from Virginia, and sad that no matter what side you are on, Jewish people are the enemy, scapegoats, and easy to blame for everything. I am shocked that the Jewish governor of Virginia is blaming Trump, and I do not understand Jews that take sides.
Lets unite together against hate!
If you ever want to know why Jews need Israel, all you need to do is look at the Charlottesville rally, a brazen and open display of unadulterated hatred, where Nazis once again roamed freely.
And the one thing that Jews have in common throughout history is being the target of the fascist left and the fascist right, so whether it’s Nazis in Charlottesville or fascist ‘rights’ movements like BDS, they all want the Jews gone.
The reality is that Jews are hated by many sides of the political spectrum, and that hatred is cultivated in different ways. Sometimes it’s positioned as intellectual as in universities who consider themselves ‘progressive’ and sometimes it’s in uncouth brutality, such as Nazi rallies or Islamic ‘days of rage.’ Sometimes it’s positioned as seeking ‘human rights’ and sometimes it’s positioned as being anti ‘colonisation,’ but it always has the same ultimate and nefarious goal.
When you are hated for who you are, it seldom matters whether the person is from the right or the left.
Israel is the land of the Jews and will always be the place where Jews can achieve their ultimate self-realisation; however it is also a haven and a country where Jews don’t or should not need to live in fear for the sole fact of being a Jew.
The fight for Israel is the same fight as the fight for the right to live as a Jew. It’s a national fight, but it’s a very personal one too.
When we fight for Israel and we stand up to hatred, we stand up for ourselves too. We MUST defend it ourselves, because we cannot rely on others to do so –
history has already shown they have failed that test.
We must defend our country and our people, because it goes far beyond mere rights – it’s about our very survival.
