A growing rift between American and Israeli Jews

Five American Jews have reached a new low by siding with our enemies again and leaving a Birthright group because they said it was incredibly biased and did not mention the “occupation.”

Disconnection between Israelis and American Jews are growing in strides. On one hand you have these girls who are the product of the Jewish Diaspora where they grew up going to a Reform synagogue where they were taught Judaism is about repairing the world and fighting for minority rights instead of belonging to a nation who where given instructions from an all powerful creator about how to live your life.

Decades looking forward it appears the greatest enemies of Israel will not be the Arab countries but, the American Jewish community who will see Israel as a backward theocratic state run by people with kippas and beards who in their mind are racist and militaristic.
The only real friend in the United States Israel will have is the White evangelical community who have a firm foundation in the belief in a creator and also share similar ideals with Israelis.

American Jews vote overwhelmingly Democratic, they constantly compare Trump to Hitler( by far an incredibly stupid comparison), voted against Israel when it came to the Iran deal and even walked out on Netanyahu’s speech when he addressed congress concerning the Iran deal.

Border security in the American southern border has been met with unwarranted criticism when people from Central America come across the border with their children exposing them to the elements of the desert not to mention the possibility of them being killed by drug smugglers.

Trump has done nothing more but followed the law and is prosecuting people for crossing the border with the United States in criminal law instead of civil to get tougher on illegal immigration, separating children from their parents is common sense because you don’t want to expose them to strangers who may do them harm in the same detention center as their parents.

Even with actual asylum seekers children are separated from their parents in different centers until they can be reunited as a family and established in the United States like what is done in the homestead air force base to Honduran refugees.

Trump has been the best President America has voted for in decades, he has effectively prevented immigration from Arab countries and Muslim countries, is helping the economy by providing huge tax breaks and reducing regulation to companies so the American economy has been greatly improved.

American Embassy move to Jerusalem was done under the Trump administration which was praised by many Christians but denounced by liberals and many American Jews because for some reason even though the Israeli Parliament and Supreme Court reside in Jerusalem it is still up for debate whether Jerusalem is the capital of Israel.

Israelis on the other hand have voted for a right wing government for the last ten years, they have voted for more border security and built a wall on its southern border to prevent infiltrators which has decreased the amount of illegal immigration across the Sinai desert to zero, Israelis consider being Israeli as a Jewish identity instead of Tikun Olam.

Tzipi Hotovely once said that American Jews do not understand what it is like to deal with loss because unlike American Jews, Israelis join the army and deal with terrorists on a daily basis during there army service whether its being shot at by terrorists in Jenin or getting rocks and fire bombs being thrown at you in Gaza.

Israelis know very well what Jihad entails and how indoctrinated Muslim terrorists are to not only the complete destruction of the state of Israel but, dream of committing genocide against every Jew living in Israel.

Every single Israeli knows at least someone who was killed in a terrorist attack or died in a war and yet when American Jews come to Israel to lecture us about human rights and how we should leave Judea and Samaria to make way for a two state solutions.

Many Israelis get upset knowing that such a withdrawal would result in another terrorist state like Gaza where there will be the digging of tunnels and rockets fired from the West Bank making it incredibly difficult to defend.

When Americans talk about how Palestinians deserve not to be stopped at checkpoints and be limited to moving around in the West Bank we think about Hallel Ariel who was murdered in her bed while sleeping, Shalhevet Pas who was a six month old baby who was murdered by a sniper, how Yishai Rosales was killed by a mortar in a military training or how two druze police officers were murdered by Muslim extremists from Um Al Fahm or the 18 year old girl who was stabbed by a Palestinian terrorist in Afula.

Accusations of Apartheid by such American Jews makes Israelis question whether Aparthied south Africa had Blacks and whites coexisting and working together like they do in the West Bank where Arabs and Jews work together in businesses together from a repair shop in Gush Eztion in the West Bank to a start up in Tel Aviv.

Cries of boycott of West Bank products by these so called enlightened Jews are stated as doing the right thing while in fact such boycotts actually hurt Palestinians who are employed by them like what led the moving of the Company Soda Stream from Ma’ale Adumim to Be’er Sheva because it operated in the so called occupied territory leading to the layoffs of hundreds of Palestinians.

Unless American Jews leave America and join the next Jewish project which is the state of Israel there will be an ever increasing divide between both American and Israeli Jews with the exception of religious Jews and secular Jews will not only leave the middle of a Birthright trip like these girls did but will revert back to their Anti- Zionist attitudes like the Reform movement was originally.
