Anti-billionaires who are anti-Israel fortify the myth that Jews own the world

Andrew Yang is a good alternative

Left-wingers want workers and the poor to get a chance at life too. But some of them fail to see how the owning class is holding Jews hostage and is parading them around as if they’d be the real oppressors (they hardly ever are). When the working class rejects the Jews, they hand them over to the owning class that then uses them to escape scrutiny and anger meant ¬†them. When you see Jews as oppressors and not oppressed, you perpetuate the myth of Jews stealthily run the world.

This is what happens when left-wingers embrace every oppressed group but the Jews. Their disgust with Jews keeps all oppressed oppressed.

Socialism passed over the USA. Working for Americans still feels like being a slave working on a plantation. They hold that they do you a favor for taking your labor. They call the Department for Workers’ Issues ‘human resource.’ As if it’s part of their stock to pull up when needed.

So, I wish it to the US to get a democratic socialist president. But, sadly, what I consider the best president for the US seems the worst for Israel.

I was wrong on Obama. When he began his presidency, I reasoned, he’s a smart guy who has felt oppression on his flesh — he’ll understand Israel quickly. But he never did. It was so bad that, just before he had to leave the White House, he betrayed the Jewish State as no American president did before him. As I explained in dozens of details in an early blog post.

So, as a Zionist, I don’t look forward to seeing Biden continue Obama’s anti-Zionism. Or see Sanders or Warren or Buttigieg even top that.

Sanders got a heart attack and survived. He declared that he was stupid not to listen to the warning signs. I think he’s still not listening. His strongest anti-Zionist position is, could Israel be right if it receives so much opposition from everywhere? It’s like saying, could women be entitled to safety if they are sexually abused everywhere? Or, could … be smart if so many consider them stupid? Telling should be that “Squad” members, infamous for their anti-Zionist BDS support, now also endorse Sanders. His once-famous integrity took yet another blow when his campaign’s emails failed to divulge his heart attack. I understand that they want to raised record amounts of money from small donors but what about doing that honestly? Judging him more favorably would be to say that he’s still honest but simply too naive to understand the lies of anti-Zionists and greed of dishonest people working for or backing him.

Warren has just announced to want to strangle economic cooperation with Israel if it doesn’t freeze the Jewish towns on the West Bank of the Jordan. Does she want Israel to deport Jews born there? Or does she expect Israel to sterilize the villagers? Compared to Israeli Jews, she treats billionaires with kid gloves — and that is telling.

Buttigieg has said on numerous occasions very unpleasant things about Jews and Israeli Jews. The first time he apologized but he never got it. Same story as Obama: smart, knows oppression from close-by but is in the dark and hostile about Jews and seeing himself as morally superior.

I’m not discussing Biden in detail because he would lose to Trump even more so than Hillary Clinton lost from him. Sleepy stammering Joe sounds confused and old next to adroit quick con artist Trump.

I don’t envy Jewish Americans who must choose between their liberal convictions and being Zionists. As solution, I recommend a more moderate candidate. A humanist rather than socialist: Jews for Yang 2020. Klobuchar has consistently be another middle-of-the-road Democratic¬† Party candidate who speaks about Israel warmly and wisely.

About the Author
MM is a prolific and creative writer and thinker, a daily blog contributor to the TOI. He is a fetal survivor of the pharmaceutical industry (, born in 1953 to two Dutch survivors who met in the largest concentration camp in the Netherlands, Westerbork, and holds a BA in medicine (University of Amsterdam). He taught Re-evaluation Co-counseling, became a social activist, became religious, made Aliyah, and raised three wonderful kids. He wrote an unpublished tome about Jewish Free Will. He's a vegan for 8 years now. He's an Orthodox Jew but not a rabbi. * His most influential teachers (chronologically) are: his parents, Nico (natan) van Zuiden and Betty (beisye) Nieweg, Wim Kan, Mozart, Harvey Jackins, Marshal Rosenberg, Reb Shlomo Carlebach and lehavdiel bein chayim lechayim: Rabbi Dr. Natan Lopes Cardozo, Rav Zev Leff and Rav Meir Lubin. * Previously, for decades, he was known to the Jerusalem Post readers as a frequent letter writer. For a couple of years he wrote hasbara for the Dutch public. His fields of attention now are varied: Psychology (including Sexuality and Abuse), Medicine (including physical immortality), Science (statistics), Politics (Israel, the US and the Netherlands, Activism - more than leftwing or rightwing, he hopes to highlight Truth), Oppression and Liberation (intersectionally, for young people, the elderly, non-Whites, women, workers, Jews, GLBTQAI, foreigners and anyone else who's dehumanized or exploited), Integrity, Philosophy, Jews (Judaism, Zionism, Holocaust and Jewish Liberation), Ecology and Veganism. Sometimes he's misunderstood because he has such a wide vision that never fits any specialist's box. But that's exactly what many love about him. Many of his posts relate to affairs from the news or the Torah Portion of the Week or are new insights that suddenly befell him. * He hopes that his words will inspire and inform, reassure the doubters but make the self-assured doubt more. He strives to bring a fresh perspective rather than bore you with the obvious. He doesn't expect his readers to agree. Rather, original minds must be disputed. In short, his main political positions are: anti-Trumpism, for Zionism, Intersectionality, non-violence, democracy, anti the fake peace process, for original-Orthodoxy, Science, Free Will, anti blaming-the-victim and for down-to-earth optimism. Read his blog how he attempts to bridge any discrepancies. He admits sometimes exaggerating to make a point, which could have him come across as nasty, while in actuality, he's quit a lovely person to interact with. He holds - how Dutch - that a strong opinion doesn't imply intolerance of other views. * His writing has been made possible by an allowance for second generation Holocaust survivors from the Netherlands. It has been his dream since he was 38 to try to make a difference by teaching through writing. He had three times 9-out-of-10 for Dutch at his high school finals but is spending his days communicating in English and Hebrew - how ironic. G-d must have a fine sense of humor. In case you wonder - yes, he is a bit dyslectic. November 13, 2018, he published his 500st blog post with the ToI. If you're a native English speaker and wonder why you should read from people whose English is only their second language, consider the advantage of having a peek outside of your cultural bubble. * To send any personal reaction to him, scroll to the top of the blog post and click Contact Me.
