Skip to comments.The Pittsburgh Synagogue, Anti-Semitism And Trump
Posted on 10/30/2018 12:00:39 AM PDT by goldstategop
As a Jew who attends synagogue every Shabbat, and as an advocate for the carrying of concealed weapons, I fervently pray we will not need armed guards at American synagogues. America's uniqueness has been exemplified by the fact that Jews do not need armed guards in their synagogues.
May it always be so.
Even if you don't love Jews -- if you only love America -- you need to fight anti-Semites. As the Jews go, so goes the fate of the nation in which they live.

Nothing like that ever happened in America before. One thing is clear though: a nations fate rests on how it treats its Jews.
If you only love America, as Prager wrote, that is all the reason needed to fight anti-Semitism.
We also need that view of those who call fast and lose for White Genocide:
There is a weird, recent “genocide cool”.
That, too, really should stop.
The Jews are kidding themselves if they think they don’t need armed guards.....I really thought they meant it when they said never again....they’ve just had their people killed ‘inside’ their Synagogue! Are they still soooo dull of hearing ad seeing when it’s right within their place of worship?
You will indeed hear but never understand, and you will indeed see but never perceive. For this peoples heart has grown dull, and with their ears they can barely hear, and their eyes they have closed, lest they should see with their eyes and hear with their ears and understand with their heart and turn, and I would heal them. (Matthew 13:1415, cf. Mark 4:1113, Luke 8:10)
Jews have 'learned' to protect what is significant to them in Israel.....
so should it be here in the USA....
Go to any synagogue in Israel for the answer.
It's horrendous what happened in Pittsburgh (11 dead, many wounded). What happened in Sutherlands Springs First Baptist late last year was also unspeakably evil -- 26 christians slaughtered and 20 wounded. The Pittsburgh massacre is getting special treatment because the Left wants to paint Trump as an Anti-Semite. Trump and his administration much demonstrate compassion and justice in light of these false charges.
However, I can't sit silent in the face of Prager's myth-making. I don't recall where in the Bible the rejected Jews are protected by a Cain-like curse (Genesis 4:15). The truth is that modern Jews are NOT God's chosen people. This lie is repeated ad nauseam by people who have not read the New Testament (Covenant). The "promise" Jews claim was made to Abraham and to his seed, not to them per se. Paul explains:
16 Now to Abraham and his seed were the promises made. He saith not, And to seeds, as of many; but as of one, And to thy seed, which is Christ. 17 And this I say, that the covenant, that was confirmed before of God in Christ, the law, which was four hundred and thirty years after, cannot disannul, that it should make the promise of none effect. 18 For if the inheritance be of the law, it is no more of promise: but God gave it to Abraham by promise. (Galatians 3:18)
The promised seed is Jesus Christ and all who are in him.
And if ye be Christ's, then are ye Abraham's seed, and heirs according to the promise. (Galatians 3:29)
I expect Jews to totally reject this. But, Christians should stop being deceived and let scripture inform them.
For an eye-popping expose of what constitutes the "commonwealth of Israel", read Ephesians 2:11-22.
At Temple Isaiah,in LA that counts 900 families as members, their guards have been armed and ready for violence for nearly a year.....None of us want this, said Rabbi Dara Frimmer. But were just living in a different era....We can be targeted because we are Jewish and because we represent the part of the America that the extremists hate, said Frimmer.
Congregation Emanu-El in San Francisco, visitors pass through metal detectors and are watched by guards.
You cannot enter a synagogue in Europe right now in Belgium or in France or in Germany without having to pass barbed wire and military-like troops,
Try Europe as well....Pittsburgh needs to do likewise.
You need to cool your jets....you’d have no place to speak at all if it were’t for the Jewish people period. Jesus is Jewish so you need to get your head on straight about how HE sees His people....
Just so you know....science and genetic testing today prove The vast majority of Jews today can be traced genetically back to the Levant area.
Thus says Adonai,
who gives the sun as a light by day
and the fixed order of the moon
and the stars as a light by night,
who stirs up the sea so its waves roar,
Adonai-Tzvaot is His Name:
Only if this fixed order departs from before Me
it is a declaration of Adonai
then also might Israels offspring cease
from being a nation
before Mefor all time.
I kept thinking how this comports with our sense of justice the righteous die and the wicked live and I reproached God for it.
I will never accept this was just or deserved and we deserve better from the Judge Of All The Earth.
Humans may have free will but a world where evil prevails over good isnt a world I can ever be at peace with.
Baruch Dayan Ha Emet. May the memory of the dead and living martyrs be for an eternal blessing.
>>It is a tragedy in part because America has finally made the list of countries in which Jews were murdered for being Jews.
the tally of victims is higher but this is not a first occurrence. There was a rampage on a Jewish community center in Seattle and there was a murder at LAX at the El Air counter.
The Seattle Jewish Federation shooting occurred on July 28, 2006, at around 4:00 p.m. PT, when Naveed Afzal Haq shot six women, one fatally, at the Jewish Federation of Greater Seattle building in the Belltown neighborhood of Seattle, Washington, United States. Naveed Haq was convicted in December 2009 and sentenced to life without parole plus 120 years. Police have classified the shooting as a “hate crime” based on what Haq is alleged to have said during a 9-1-1 call. King County Prosecuting Attorney Norm Maleng described the shooting as “one of the most serious crimes that has ever occurred in this city”.
On Independence Day of the United States, July 4, 2002, a lone terrorist opened fire at the airline ticket counter of El Al, Israel’s national airline, at Los Angeles International Airport in Los Angeles, California. Two people were killed and four others were injured before the gunman was fatally shot by an El Al security guard after also being wounded by him.
In both of these cases antisemitic Islamists targeted strangers simply because they were Jewish.
there was another case (while Obama was president) in which some people were shot (not Jewish) but Jews were targeted (the parking lot of a synagogue or community center or something, I don’t have full recall this morning).
>>I have no idea if, outside the universities and the Israel-hating left, there has been an increase in anti-Semitism in America.
I’d say yes because the Islamists have been taking over student governments (the apathetic college students are more concerned about Bernie, Obama, Beto, and Wendy Davis than their peers who represent them in student government).
The vitriol among Leftists is clearly intolerant.
Ask “antifa” about Israel and God and you’ll uncover an antisemite.
A person with a rainbow flag with a Star of David on it was kicked out of a gay pride march (Chicago? I don’t remember) because the members felt more solidarity with Palestinians.
The Democrat Party booed God and Israel before the whole nation at their political convention on national tv.
Antisemites have gotten bolder in America and I don’t think they got their without greater acceptance in the media and on the Left.
Check a search for Your grandchildren will be brown. Fellow white people...
I am pretty sure Jesus said some things about Jews that would make a real WHite Nationalist blush. I seem to recall Brood of Vipers and Synagogue of Satan. I also recall the prophet writing ...and I heard the Spirit of The Lord depart from Israel.... A lot of folks seem to be trying to make political points from Theology which seems to me a real bad idea for all sides.
When the fascists/communists parading as democrats threw out any references to God at their 2012 National Convention such anti-Americanism remarks whos Constitution One Nation under God professes indirectly We are all Gods children. Racial divisive remarks and reactions should be expected from them.
——Nothing like that ever happened in America before.——
Au contraire, mi Amigo........ please recall that in a South Carolina church, black Baptists were murdered by a shooter because they were Christians.
Blacks aand Jews are both major components of the democrat coaltion and must be protected by the presstitutes at all costs
Yes it has, just not eleven killed at once. Which doesn’t change the fact that the US is the safest country in the world for Jews, perhaps save Israel. We’ve had a lynching, one, just over a century ago. The Democrat Governor ended his career by pardoning Leo Frank posthumously. Not a good political move. And we’ve had a pogrom, one, two if you count the harlem riots in the 1930s, I don’t since whites were equally targeted. The instigator of the Crown Heights pogrom is a darling of the left, national news personality, and a regular at the Obama White House. Go figure.
