Barack to the Future
PJ Media ^ | 28 July 2014 | Ed Driscoll

“Is the Left anti-Semitic? Sadly, it is heading that way,” Brendan O’Neill writes in theLondon Telegraph. Of course, the obvious rejoinder is, “Heading…?”

This is a recurring theme in anti-Israel sentiment today: the idea that a powerful, sinister lobby of Israel lovers has warped our otherwise respectable leaders here in the West, basically winning control of Western foreign policy. You see it in cartoons depicting Israeli leaders as the puppet masters of politicians like William Hague and Tony Blair. You can hear it in Alexi Sayle’s much-tweeted claim that the “Western powers” kowtow to Israel because they are “frightened of it… frightened of the power that it wields”. You can see it in the arguments of John Mearsheimer and Stephen Walt in their popular book The Israel Lobby and US Foreign Policy, which holds an apparently super-powerful pro-Israel lobby in the heart of Washington responsible for the Iraq War and all other kinds of disasters. The claim is often made that Israel has corrupted Western officials, commanding them to carry out its dirty work.

And some learned the lessons of history, but just want to see the world burn. Sadly, I'm beginning to think Obama is a madman, and could care less that he didn't study history.

Yeah, agree. But, my question is; what does it take to “finally” cause American Jews to break off their love-fest with the American left?

Leftists, by whatever name they go by (including islamics and nazis), have a deep hatred of God.

That Israel and America was founded on God and His morals and values, it’s no surprise leftists hate these two nations and what they represent.

This has been true for thousands of years and will not change.

We are seeing more leftists remove their masks and reveal their deep, satan-based hatred of God, America and Israel.

I deleted everything I wrote so as not to be called an antisemite.

You beat me to it. Truman liberals, like my father, JFK, LBJ, Carter, and more recently Lieberman, were supporters of Israel, but true leftists have always been anti-Israel and anti-Jew: Israel has been the perfect whipping boy for their political BDSM fantasies, and Jews the perfect foil to deflect attacks on the perpetual failure of their ideology. (That God loves Israel and Satan hates Israel is the underlying motivation, but most leftists are useful idiots and don't recognize this.)

It was Carter who brought Sadat and Shamir together, resulting in the peace treaty between Egypt and Israel, and he did it because his Christian beliefs led him to support peace for Israel. To this day, Egypt’s leader is still taking Israel’s side against Hamas, not because Egypt loves Israel, but because al-Sisi, like Mubarak before him and Sadat before him, realizes that Hamas is a front for terrorism, and is as much against him as it is against Israel. Carter today has become a sycophant follower of the anti-Israel leftists, as has everyone who remains a Democrat, but back then he had a good motivation, and obtained a good result.

Same problem as with the “liberal” Christians: they have to break with Marxism and return to their Biblical faith. They like the world too much.

Since with Marxism “the present dominates the past”, it prevents so many people from learning those lessons.

Carter’s alleged Christian beliefs had nothing to do with the Camp David abomination—unless those “beliefs” had to do with holding the bigoted view of the so-called “perfidious Jew”. The last thing Carter really cared about was peace; if he did care about peace, he would have backed Israel militarily. Carter was always one of the sycophantic anti-Israel leftists, because by Camp David he emboldened the Islamic terrorists.

Hamas is not a “front for” terrorism; it is open terrorism. An example of a front organization is CAIR, the Council on American-Islamic Relations, who are a front for Hamas. And that is correct about Egypt—the masses in Tahrir Square chanting “To Jerusalem we go, martyrs in the millions” were in their majority neither Muslim Brotherhood nor Salafis, nor were the “men” who were sexually assaulting women there.

No argument here. There is a difference though. A majority of American Christians vote GOP. Majority of American Jews Dem.

Not liberal American Christians; they certainly vote Democrat. And there are far more liberal Jews by percentage.
