Skip to comments.The Left Hate Israel Because It Is Everything They Despise: Capitalist, Conservative and Patriotic

Everyone from liberal journalists to a member of the English cricket team is gunning for Israel at the moment. The Independent describes it as rogue state. The Guardian considers the Israeli 'occupation' of Gaza as a 'shameful injustice'. Meanwhile, cricketer Moeen Ali has pledged his support for the Palestinians by sporting 'Free Gaza' wristbands. Respectable opinion knows which side wears the black hats in this conflict.
What is it about Israel that arouses so much anger? Is it because it's a theocratic state, committed to destroying its neighbour, which uses civilians as human shields, tortures and kills its political opponents, persecutes homosexuals, and holds freedom of speech and the rule of law in contempt?
No, hang on, thats Hamas, and we all know they're the good guys of the piece. No matter how appallingly they treat their own people and how many innocents they blow up, shoot or kidnap, nothing can blot their copybook.
Which isnt to say that Israel could get away with the same behaviour, of course. It can't even protect its own people without drawing criticism. Israel is like the older brother who is expected to know better. His younger siblings can run riot, because they're held to different standards, but big bro should sit there quietly, no matter how many times he takes a kicking.
Not that the media does much reporting on the kicking Israel receives. It would much rather lament the significantly higher Palestinian losses, as if they automatically put Israel in the wrong and let Hamas off the hook for striking the first blow....

Israel is real bad socialist.
Why do American Jews vote Democrat and tend to be liberal.
It has free abortion on demand too
“Israel is real bad socialist.”
I worked for a Tadiran subsidiary. They were all screaming socialists. There were none we’d recognize as “conservative.” Their capitalism has some serious socialist streaks. I don’t recall whether Tadiran did this, but other companies did this. The Israeli employees got a car, an apartment and free meals. But it was all chosen by the higher-ups to reflect your status. A small, cheap car. An apartment in a location at a status that reflected your “importance.” There were three cafeterias. One for the masses with serving lines and little selection, one for managers that was a bit more gracious and one with tuxedoed waiters.
Everything is relative.
Many associate Republicans with Christianity, and resist being “converted.” I have been told this by some of my Jewish friends.
Abortion on demand courtesy of the State; homosexuals prancing about Tel Aviv and Jerusalem. Seems to mirror us too much.
Free abortions is conservative!?
Conservative??? I wish.
The Left hates Israel because Leftists hate God.
Read a little history.
Leftism is a political ideology conjoined to hedonism and the persist of self gratification in virtually every Avenue of life.
The existence of Israel points to the existence of God. And not just any God, but a specific God...one that condemns much of their actions and desires. A God who also has every right to call them to account.
God is by nature spirit, and though he holds total dominion over his creation he is not affected by it.
Since the left can not attack God directly, they must attempt to eradicate the Jewish in order to try to maintain their denial of God's existence in their own mind. This is why the anti-theists we get on these forums inevitably go off on an anti Israel rant after a few years and ride the lightning.
Biblical history suggests God preserves Israel so it can repent. I hope the rest of us aren’t bit players. lol.
Can you suggest any history which shows that Leftists do not hate God?
Or any history which shows that Israel is not God’s chosen people?
‘Their God changes path of rockets in mid-air’
Deuteronomy 4:19 and Malachi 1:11.
And lest thou lift up thine eyes unto heaven, and when thou seest the sun, and the moon, and the stars, even all the host of heaven, shouldest be driven to worship them, and serve them, which the LORD thy God hath divided unto all nations under the whole heaven.
- King James Bible “Authorized Version”, Cambridge Edition
For from the rising of the sun even unto the going down of the same my name shall be great among the Gentiles; and in every place incense shall be offered unto my name, and a pure offering: for my name shall be great among the heathen, saith the LORD of hosts.
- King James Bible “Authorized Version”, Cambridge Edition
Looking forward to the response on this one. Didn’t the democrats basically “Boo” God at their last convention? There’s video of it available...
Or, they may hate Israel because they love terrorist scum. Hmmm...
And pro-gay. Liberals actually should love Israel.
resist being converted. —
Well ... It ain’t Repubs (RINOs or otherwise) or Tea Party who is convicting you, keeping you awake, ... it is GOD!!!
So keep resisting. / s
Actually, deep down, you should stop resisting God. Forget the “Christianity” and “Religion” labels. Let God Love You!
That’s not it.
Liberals don’t see things as a matter of right and wrong, but rather weak and strong.
Their allegiance goes to the weak, unless the weak violate their core values.
Palestinians are weak. That’s that.
I appreciate your non hearsay truth. I have studied Israel. In the first place it is not “the largest democracy “ in the middle east. Not even close to Iran or Egypt. Iran has “run off” elections. Before the military coup, the Morsi election was 61% !! You can’t make that up. He was overthrown with your money like the Ukrainian elected government.
In the second place Israel is a socialist MODEL and has been the bastion of socialism since 1949!!. I don’t even see the Christian connection because none believe in Jesus as the Son of God. Why are we pulling for these guys?
By American standards, Israel is none of those things. I surmise the author is a Brit, and might not be real familiar with the State of Israel.
No - their boss hates God and all of God’s people. The rest are symptoms, not causes.
It’s about democracy. The Democrats are against it.
I once heard it said that lefties hate the Jews because the Jews are the ones who came up with all the rules/morals in the first place...
Like Simon, called Peter, they denied the Lord three times, however I fear, that bar real repentance for their act, the outcome will be quite different...
That, to me, indicates that God is enveloping of true Grace, so long as His image is Morally sought.
“Why are we pulling for these guys?”
The important factor is not whether they’re socialist but whether their culture (in this case that means religion and race) wants to destroy our culture (religion and race.) Iran is an apocalyptic culture of death. The important thing to Iran is that they will cause the return of the Mahdi.
I suspect the Christian connection with Israel has to do with the Biblical prophesies of the end times where Israel features as a leading role in Christ’s return. (If I’ve messed this up please be kind and aim over my head. Thanks.)
That’s all one needs to know of the democrats!
