Wake Up, Jews!
American Thinker ^ | 9/28/2012 | Rabbi Aryeh Spero

Posted on 09/28/2012 3:56:41 AM PDT by RoosterRedux

No doubt, it's hard for people to give up their lifelong attachments and identity. But there are moments in history when a turning point arrives, and those with eyes to see and ears to hear recognize it. Many Jews have made political liberalism their religion and personal identity and the Democrat Party their unexamined home and comfort zone. But everything changed early September.

Rarely do modern-day political conventions startle. The Democratic National Convention, however, was earthshaking and a warning to Jews to wake up. Democrat delegates decided to stick it to Israel. We no longer care, they roared, if Israel remains a Jewish state; flood her heartland with millions of so-called Palestinians whose goal is to make the state Islamic. We will not condemn Hamas for targeting Jewish population centers with rockets. Jerusalem is not Israel's indivisible capital but should be divided, like Berlin was. Such was the undeniable sentiment of the delegates at the Convention.

After objections from outside the Convention, the chairman reinstated support for Jerusalem. But he was resoundingly booed. The world saw how those boos far outweighed the yeas. My fellow Jews, the boos were for you; those boos were for Israel, a successful Israel that sticks in the craw of a leftist, socialist mindset that sees Israel not as the beacon of freedom and accomplishment she is, but as something outside the leftist ideological orbit. Sure, they will take your contributions and your votes, but they don't want your Israel, and they expect you to forgo distinctly Jewish needs on the altar of leftism. We saw not liberalism, but hardcore leftism, and we saw a home where the welcome mat is quite conditional and worn out.

It is a confusing situation that befuddles me. It’s like they are in a trance and will not wake up.

I used to believe, like some notable conservatives, that liberalism was a (curable?) mental disorder. I now hold the more spiritually nuanced view that it is a demonic stronghold. The only way to take those down is repentance, and that requires a person still have (or more accurately perceives that he/she has) a free will.

Why, for example, do so many blacks still support the Democrat party, no matter how far their families, neighborhoods and cities decay? Why do Jews embrace the Democrats who hate them? Because they are not free, inside, to question their relationship to the truth.

By contrast, you can't keep Republicans on the same page, and contrary to popular misconception, we generally don't keep internal coalitions too well. It's rather like herding cats.

The difference is the degree of will-power to seek truth, even if it means seeking it all alone, or risk not finding it. It's exactly the opposite of conventional wisdom -- which is usually where the truth can be found.

Some might even call it individual responsibility. Some ‘jews’ still jump when pharoah says jump and will try to make bricks with only half the straw. Moses stayed pi$$ed a lot. No different now than it ever was.

The Jewish people need to reach into their Inner Warrior. They were originally a very warlike tribe, not afraid to take on vicious enemies around them. Over the Centuries, the compassion and intelligence God gave them gave their enemies (Nazis, Communists, Southern Democrats) the false impression they were wimpy and weak. Today, Israel has only partially awakened that Warrior Spirit in the Jewish people...the rest of the Hebrew nation all around the world needs to tap into this as well.

“Wake up, not about to happen. Best we can hope for is they do not wake up on election day and sleep through it.

Yours is the best explanation I ever heard.

Indeed Moses did stay pissed a lot, and for good reason.

Even after their miraculous escape, they actually were witness to a miracle at the parting of the sea,they went back to making false gods.

Like you, I now feel that liberalism has become a religion in itself. Liberals have their sacrament (abortion), articles of Faith (Gov.care), revivals (Democratic convention & protests) and tithing (give $ to the cause).

Some have good sense. 30% for Romney is not insignificant. Of course there should be much more.

American Jews are much like American adolescents, IMHO—Secure in the belief that parents/adults (i.e., Conservatives/Republicans) will save them from their self-destructive behaviors, no matter how outrageous.

How did Stalin treat Jews?
Very poorly. The Soviets arrested many Jews who fled the Nazis. Judaism was banned in the USSR. Stalin hated Jews and planned to force Soviet Jews on a death march through Siberia to Bijobaizhan. He had already set up the pretext with The Doctor's Plot
Most American Jews are completely ignorant of this.
