If I live to be a hundred and fifty, I will NEVER understand the whole Jewish American attitude toward firearms when considered in the light of World War II, and all the many and various acts of oppression directed at Jews over the centuries.
Don’t judge all of us by the leftist jinos in America. There’s them...and there’s the REST of us that no one ever counts...and there are more of us than you think.
To #5: Not all Jews are fools or cowards. There are a lot of Jewish policemen, soldiers, and in other law enforcement positions, including my son who is a combat veteran of Iraq.
However, you only hear from the wacko leftists like Saperstein or liberal no-nothings like Bloomturd and Nadler and some of the Jewish organization leaders who forget that Jews have been specifically targetted for death by Islamic jihadists in the US (LAX, Seattle Jewish building, Kahane - by Al Qaeda operative); Orthodox Jews in NYC by black gangs; Synagogues firebombed or shot up; Jewish leaders targetted for assassination by all kinds of extremists from White to Black to Moslem, etc).
Some of us are armed and willing to use them to defend our family, friends, neighbors, schools, shuals, churches and the stranger.
Some of us learned the lessons of the Holocaust which explained why we don’t have European families anymore.
“If I live to be a hundred and fifty, I will NEVER understand the whole Jewish American attitude toward firearms when considered in the light of World War II, and all the many and various acts of oppression directed at Jews over the centuries.”
Can’t improve upon your statement, so I thought I’d just post it again. Their whole incorrigible fascination with every big-government Socialist ideology is just incomprehensible. The Lost Tribe, indeed - I find their attitudes very similar to the self-defeating, tribal Black mentality (although the word “mentality” may give a bit too much credit to what seems to be occurring in both cases).
Ya’ can’t fix stupid.
JPFO WHITE PAPER
Why Jews Hate Guns
Are they right?
And who are The Shomrim?
by Rabbi Dovid Bendory, Rabbinic Director
Jews for the Preservation of Firearms Ownership
and Author Alan Korwin, GunLaws.com

Its no secret that one of the largest blocs of people pressing for so-called gun control is the culturally (aka not-so-religious) American Jewish community. This confounds many observers who would expect that Jews, with such a stunning history of oppression and murder by humanitys villains, would cling tenaciously to personal firearms and the ability to protect themselves as the Hebrew Scriptures instruct.
In reaction to the Holocaust, American Jews adopted the phrase Never Again! If actions mean anything, they dont believe it. Thats for someone else to do. How do Jews expect to put teeth behind the words Never Again! if not with the ability to apply and project personal force when righteous — and necessary — for survival?
Why then do so many American Jews hate guns and fear gun ownership so much?
Our research identifies ten reasons why these Jews feel the way they do about self defense in general, firearms specifically and your own right to keep and bear arms.
The adamantly anti-gun-rights Jews are bowing to:
1. A desire for utopian moral purity
2. A disproportional incidence of hoplophobia
3. A quest for power through victimization of peers
4. A utopian delusion that if guns would just go away,
crime would end and the world would be a peaceful safe place
5. Self hatred and a wish to be helpless, acting out guilt-based
behavioral problems that develop in childhood
6. The Ostrich Syndrome
7. Garden-variety hypocrisy
8. Adulterated religion — Jews In Name Only (JINOs)
9. Feel-good sophistry
10. Abject fear that yields irrational behavior
Despite the modern American Jewish aversion to arms, it has not always been so, and Israeli Jews certainly understand the value of arms. Throughout history, there were Jews who fought in defense of their people and way of life. The Torah is filled with Jews who took up arms in righteous and valiant defensive action. See, for example, The Ten Commandments of Self Defense, (Bendory and JPFO, 2009); or recall, When Abraham heard that his nephew Lot was taken captive, he took the 318 trained soldiers of his house and pursued the captors, defeated them, brought back Lot, and exacted retribution with their looted property. (Genesis 14:14)
Contemporary Jews may have largely acquiesced to their WWII inquisitors, but Biblical Jews resisted their Egyptian slave masters and then fought countless fierce battles against invaders and anti-Semites, such as Amelek, the Philistines and Haman.
Jews have been assaulted, accosted, and oppressed by nearly every nation and empire in history, including the ancient Greeks, Romans, Persians, Byzantines, Ottomans and of course modern nations like Germany and the USSR.
Miraculously, Jews have outlasted all those who would annihilate them, typically by using force of arms. Perhaps their liberal modern approach to assault and suffering — Dont fight back, it will only make matters worse — holds lessons for us. Or perhaps not: it is very hard to witness open-pit graves piled high with emaciated corpses without emotional revulsion. How much worse could matters get?
Culturally proper Jews will not want to openly face the tortured reasoning of their Faustian bargain behind dont make it worse. That doesnt make the following reasons any less real or mortally dangerous. And Jews are not alone in relying on these justifications for rejecting the fundamental human right of self defense. Many other gunless people will also recognize their feelings accurately described by what we have found.
We would not dream of interfering with a free persons freedom to choose and embrace defenselessness or to go gunless. On the other hand, there can be no tolerance for anyone who attempts to force others to behave so dangerously.
This is from a Rabbi too. Much more to read at link if you are at all interested.
They are ostriches. Must be a bit*h living in denial.
