    This is the post-election lecture by Rabbi Yosef Mizrachi. It's long but very important. There are some statements made regarding various Jewish movements. Don't let that deter you, as you may agree with the other 98% of what he says. Mashiach is mentioned. Many American rabbis are having a similar conversation with their communities. This is a Jewish caucus thread. If you don't consider yourself a Jew, don't post in this thread. No 'witnessing' will be tolerated, so if you aren't a Jew and wish to participate in this thread, send me a FReepmail and I'll ping you to the...
  • Election 2016: The Day the Music Died for American Jews

    American Thinker ^ | December 1, 2016 | Ron Jager
    For most American Jewish liberals, November 8 was not only a watershed election, but a day in which the music died. They have been left speechless and silent, unwilling to fathom the implications. These liberal Jews have become disoriented and unsure about what to do and what to say; they seem to be suffering from a bad case of PTSD (Post Trump Stress Disorder). For many of these liberal Jews, they are slowly waking up to a new reality of losing their political clout, being left out of the multiple loops of power and access to the White House. They...

    In an interview this week with the Australian media, Jordan’s King Abdullah became the latest Arab leader to express hope that President-elect Donald Trump and his team will lead the world’s to date failed fight against jihadist Islam. Like his counterparts in Egypt and Saudi Arabia, Abdullah effectively ruled out the possibility that President Barack Obama will take any constructive steps to defeat the forces of global jihad in his last months in power. Speaking of the humanitarian disaster in Aleppo for instance, Abdullah said, “I don’t think there’s much we can do until the new administration is in place...

    Washington, D.C. Imam Abdul Alim Musa discussed the results of the U.S. presidential election in his November 18 Friday sermon at the Al-Islam Mosque in the city. The Zionists have "created a 'Hitlerian' environment in the U.S," said Imam Musa. He accused "the Zionists" of carrying out the 1993 attack on the World Trade Center and framing the Muslims, and of treating the Palestinians "exactly like the Nazis treated the Europeans." The sermon was posted on the YouTube channel of Imam Musa's As-Sabiqun organization. The Arkansas-born imam is the director and founder of As-Sabiqun and of the Islamic Institute of...

    Everyone said their guy was going to lose. Three-quarters of their fellow American Jews voted for the other candidate. But now, Jewish Trump voters are triumphant. “I was elated,” said Jeff Bookman, 65, a jewelry seller from the heavily Jewish Cleveland suburb of Beachwood. […] “I was so excited about the prospect of a Republican House, Senate and president with the opportunity, for the first time in memory, to implement conservative ideas,” he said. “For the free market to operate on its own will cure a lot of the ills of the economy, and a head-on confrontation with Islamic terror...

    Senior Hamas official Mahmoud Zahar has suggested that US President-elect Donald Trump is secretly a Jew. In an interview with Al-Jazeera earlier this month, translated by MEMRI, Zahar said that “Trump loves the Jews, and not only because he likes the Jewish religion. I do not rule out the possibility that he is a Jew.” “He loves the Jewish religion,” Al-Zahhar continued, “and the most important thing in the Jewish religion is Jewish money.” Zahar then went on an antisemitic rant, saying that Harry Truman was bought by $2 million in “Jewish Money” and therefore recognized the State of Israel....

    Israeli media have reported several important donations made in years past by both the late Fred Trump and his son, now President Elect Donald Trump. Some 50 years ago, real estate developer Fredrick Trump donated the land for the Talmud Torah of the Beach Haven Jewish Center at 723 Ave. Z in Flatbush, NY, as can be seen from a promotional image released by that institution. The center is open and active to this day, offering programs for youth and the elderly, as well as an active synagogue.

    Alan Dershowitz, a staunch Democrat and emeritus law professor at Harvard University, is hitting back against the smears claiming White House appointee Steve Bannon is anti-Semitic, arguing it is “not legitimate to call somebody an anti-Semite because you might disagree with their policies.” Speaking in an interview with this reporter, Dershowitz stated: I think we have to be very careful before we accuse any particular individual of being an anti-Semite. The evidence certainly suggests that Mr. Bannon has very good relationships with individual Jews. My former researcher, Joel Pollak, is an Orthodox Jew who takes off the Jewish holidays, who...

It was parents who cried, many of them overcome by grief and fear after Hillary Clinton’s stunning loss to a man who throughout his campaign crudely expressed explicitly anti-Semitic, racist and sexist views. “People were openly weeping,” said Douglas Schneider, an attorney and local political activist who was one of those who cried at the synagogue preschool while dropping off his young son. “This is a real gut punch.

    In recent years, Republicans have made inroads into the overwhelmingly Democratic constituency of American Jews. But this year, Republican Jews — or Jewish donors to the Republican party, at least — are abandoning their party’s nominee at a stunningly high rate. In 2012, 71 percent of the $160 million that Jewish donors gave to the two major-party nominees went to President Obama’s re-election campaign; 29 percent went to Mitt Romney’s campaign, according to our analysis of campaign contributors, which used a predictive model to estimate which donors are Jewish based on their names and other characteristics.

    Much has been made about Jewish Republicans and their apparent hesitance for Trump, as well as the aggregate set of Jewish voters. The liberal media has done much to demonize Trump with them, by pointing out a few rogue Twitter trolls, who may or may not be DNC/Crooked Hillary shills. Here's the truth: Donald J. Trump will prevent a Europe-like scenario of Muslim immigration to the US. That Europe-like scenario is the sheer amount of Jews fleeing the continent because Muslim anti-Semitism has increased with the Islam population, and leftist and formerly center-left parties have courted the Muslim vote with...

The RJC plan, first shared with POLITICO, comes as Democrats are already grappling with the possibility that the Israeli-Palestinian conflict will emerge as a major flashpoint at their national convention next month, given the sharp disagreements some...

    The Obama administration through its National Security Council passed hundreds of thousands of dollars to the Ploughshares Fund, an NGO that favors allowing Iran to have nuclear weapons. And the Ploughshares Fund paid J Street over $500,000 to push its agenda last summer. That's what came out over this past weekend. A group the White House recently identified as a key surrogate in selling the Iran nuclear deal gave liberal Jewish lobbying organization J street $576,500 to advocate for the deal.  ... J-Street, a liberal Jewish political action group, undertook a comprehensive campaign last year to support the nuclear...

    No sane American, no sane Jew, can give that premise a serious argument At the beginning of January 2016, an organization called NORPAC—a lobby whose mission is to support candidates and sitting members of Congress “who demonstrate a genuine commitment to the strength, security, and survival of Israel”—invited its members to “an exclusive and intimate” cocktail reception for Hillary Clinton for people willing to pay $2,700 per individual or $5,400 per couple. The invitation included a synopsis of Hillary’s credibility vis-a-vis Israel, stating that she had “been a supporter of the US-Israel relationship for many years…and, as Secretary of State,...
  • At Jews for Bernie event in NY, anger boils over at Sanders campaign

    NEW YORK (JTA) – It might have been the last place you’d expect anger to erupt against the Bernie Sanders campaign. But at a Jews for Bernie brunch in Manhattan’s Tribeca neighborhood on Sunday, the frustration seemed to boil over when some silver-haired Jewish supporters of Sanders began deriding what they described as the campaign’s lackluster response to perceived missteps by the Democratic presidential candidate on Jewish issues – most recently, last week’s interview with the New York Daily News in which Sanders grossly overestimated the number of Palestinian civilians killed in the 2014 Gaza conflict. That interview and other...

    LAS VEGAS — Ted Cruz has hundreds of influential Republican donors and Jewish leaders all to himself this weekend in Las Vegas as he addresses the Republican Jewish Coalition. Cruz's rivals for the GOP presidential nomination, Donald Trump and John Kasich, declined invitations to attend — a puzzling move in particular for Trump as he tries to project himself as a party unifier who deserves the Republican nomination even if he falls short of winning enough delegates in the primaries to clinch it outright....
  • AIPAC’s Ovation for Trump is Not at All Surprising

    My friends at the AIPAC conference are shocked, shocked that so many fellow attendees gave Donald Trump an ovation last night. Just like my Republican friends are shocked that so many fellow Republicans have voted for him. Why the surprise, though? Is it at all surprising that a rightward-tilting, nationalistic, often-anti-Muslim pep rally of 18,000 people (many paid to be there by a handful of billionaires) would applaud a rightward-tilting, nationalistic, often-anti-Muslim leader of pep rallies? The weirdest shock of all, though, came from AIPAC itself, whose leader apologized this morning for Trump’s having insulted President Obama. Choking back tears,...

    If yarmulke sales are any indication of voter attitudes, Donald Trump was the clear winner at AIPAC on Monday night. Marc Daniels, a vendor selling campaign logo kippas outside the American Israel Public Affairs Committee conference in Washington, D.C. on Monday evening, said the “Donald Trump 2016” cap was his most popular item by far. Daniels said he was “inundated” with requests for the Trump yarmulkes from conference-goers and sold out almost immediately. “I totally underestimated the degree of support that Jewish people who are attending this event have for Trump,” said Daniels, who runs an online yarmulke shop called...

    Good evening. I speak to you today as a lifelong supporter and true friend of Israel. I am a newcomer to politics but not to backing the Jewish state. In late 2001, weeks after the attacks on New York City and Washington - attacks perpetrated by Islamic fundamentalists, Mayor Giuliani visited Israel to show solidarity with terror victims. I sent him in my plane because I backed the mission 100%. In Spring 2004, at the height of violence in the Gaza Strip, I was the Grand Marshal of the 40th Salute to Israel Parade, the largest single gathering in support...
