Attacks Against Israel Goes Mainstream With Bernie
Bernie has chosen to boycott AIPAC this year, claiming that their support of Israel over the Palestinians is the reason his boycotting the organization, but is this the reason? Many try to say that Bernie is not Jewish, so there is no way he can be anti-Semitic. Still, one has seen with the Democratic support of the racist ideology of “White Privilege,” most of the white Progressive liberals support this racist ideology, that self-hate of your race is part of the M.O. of the DNC, I would say Bernie is highly anti-Semetic due to his policies of throwing Israel under the bus every chance he gets.
This is not a modern way that some within the Jewish community have reacted, we have seen the same thing with someone whom Bernie has supported, and gives support back to him, George Soros, Soros openly admits he was raised in an anti-Semitic family, even though they were Jewish. The fact that far-left liberal Jewish groups are supporting Bernie makes about as much sense to me as supporting the German Fascist in the 1920s, but these people will take to ideology over common sense.
This is why Bernie has drawn into his orbit anti-Semitic activists like Rashida, Ilhan, and OAC; they don’t mind that he is Jewish, so long as he knows where his place in the world is. He has shown the true colors of the DNC support, the fact that it is profoundly antisemitic, yet they hold up Bernie and say, “Look, he is Jewish! See, I have no problem with Jews!” This is no different than the ardent racist that have someone in their orbit that is African American; they tolerate them so long as they stay within the “place” they deem they should be, then tell the world, “We have no problem with Blacks, we just don’t want to live by them!”
Here lies the problem with peace, the same thing we saw years ago, something many like Bernie ignore, Israel was pushed into this in 2005 when George W. Bush was in office, he and the GOP, along with our European allies pressured Israel to accept and honor their end of the Oslo 2 accords, even though Arafat and his followers were not.
The Israeli’s under pressure removed by force Israeli’s that had lived in Gaza since Israel liberated the area from Egyptian occupation, pulled completely out of Gaza, but what they got in return was not peace and prosperity.
The day Israel pulled out of Gaza, leaving behind a thriving florist business to aid Gaza in their drive to develop themselves economically, instead of using this resource the Arabs looted these businesses, then burned them to the ground, then complained that there was nothing left in the area for them.
Seven days after Israel pulled out, the first waves of suicide bombers struck Israel. They hit pizza parlors full of civilians, blew themselves up on buses, and attacked weddings, so Israel did the only thing they could do, they put up a fence to make access to Israel more difficult.
Naturally, people like Bernie, the EU, Arab nations, and the UN cried foul, said this was a violation of international law. Still, when the terrorist in Gaza, no longer able to access Israel turned on the Egyptians in the Sinai, and they put up a fence, no one said a word, that was Egypt’s right to defend their people. It is incredible how, when it involves nations other then Israel is it ok, but not when Israel does it.
If it stopped here, that would be the end of it, but it did not. At this point, Israel still had access open to the West Bank, the people in Gaza still had their ports open, Israel was supplying them with utilities, so what happened?
Turns out after this, some of the citizens from Gaza, traveling from Gaza to Judea and Samaria, or the West Bank, decided to cut through the fence and slaughter Israeli families after the father left the house, guess they were too cowardly to deal with an armed man. It was not this that shut off access, although it should have, it was the response from the people in Gaza. The same way they danced in the streets on 9/11, they danced, passed out candy, and called these terrorist heroes of the people, so Israel shut down all access.
Once more, the UN held special councils and condemned, the EU and Arab nations, along with far-leftist liberals like Bernie screamed that Israel was a tyrant, how dare they cut off this access. Yet when Egypt and Jordan opened their roads to give access, and the same thing happened in Gaza, no one in the UN or the EU said a word, the Arabs openly sided with the Egyptians, and people like Bernie sat on their hands. Amazing how once more, when a nation protects itself, it is justified unless it is Israel.
Ports were operating in Gaza, and Israel was still supplying utilities, so what happened to the ports? It turns out that Gaza was caught multiple times trying to sneak in arms from Iran and other Arab states. Part of the Oslo 2 accord was the promise that Gaza would remain demilitarized. The Israeli’s after catching shipments in the Santorini affair, Karine A affair, Victoria Affair, to name a few, so Israel cut off all access to shipping in supplies, had the ship turned to Israeli ports after putting in a blockade around Gaza, then on their dime paid to move supplies into Gaza after they were inspected in Israel.
Once more Sanders and others screamed over the blockade, the UN once more issued condemnations, the EU, and the Arab nations yelled about the travesty of this. But when Egyp caught ships unloading in the Sinai, an overland smuggling route through Egypt from Sudan, they put in place a blockade on their border. Once more, there was not a peep out of the EU, the UN, or the Arab states. One has to wonder why this was?
Israel pulled out of Gaza in 2005, yet the world is demanding that Israel continue to supply Gaza with utilities, something they refuse to pay for. Israel did continue to provide services, but when the people of Gaza overwhelmingly voted to keep Hamas in power, Israel cut this off.
People like Bernie screamed about the lack of humanity of the fence, yelled that innocents were suffering. Still, he, like many failed to recognize; it was these very people when Carter and others visited them, who, in an open vote, voted overwhelmingly to keep Hamas in power. When you support a terrorist organization, with the openly stated intent of wiping out Israel, you have no right to play the victim when this nation moves to protect itself, you made your bed, now sleep in it.
Bernie loves to play the card that he lost people in the Holocaust, and he did, but that does not give you the right to deny Israel, to support its enemies, to surround yourself with rabid antisemites. Bernie is an ideologist; he would sell out Israel and dance on its grave if he could force his socialism on the world. You yell Bernie about how your father fled to the US at 17 to avoid antisemitism, then you in turn support people who are rabidly anti-Semitic, I say shame on you!
