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

Andrew Yang is a good alternative

Make America Think Harder - the Yang Gang cap, suitable for shul and school.

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, previously a daily blog contributor to the TOI. He often makes his readers laugh, mad, or assume he's nuts—close to perfect blogging. He's proud that his analytical short comments are removed both from left-wing and right-wing news sites. None of his content is generated by the new bore on the block, AI. * As a frontier thinker, he sees things many don't yet. He's half a prophet. Half. Let's not exaggerate. Or not at all because he doesn't claim G^d talks to him. He gives him good ideas—that's all. MM doesn't believe that people observe and think in a vacuum. He, therefore, wanted a broad bio that readers interested can track a bit what (lack of) backgrounds, experiences, and educations contribute to his visions. * This year, he will prioritize getting his unpublished books published rather than just blog posts. Next year, he hopes to focus on activism against human extinction. To find less-recent posts on a subject XXX among his over 2000 archived ones, go to the right-top corner of a Times of Israel page, click on the search icon and search "zuiden, XXX". One can find a second, wilder blog, to which one may subscribe too, here: or by clicking on the globe icon next to his picture on top. * Like most of his readers, he believes in being friendly, respectful, and loyal. However, if you think those are his absolute top priorities, you might end up disappointed. His first loyalty is to the truth. He will try to stay within the limits of democratic and Jewish law, but he won't lie to support opinions or people when don't deserve that. (Yet, we all make honest mistakes, which is just fine and does not justify losing support.) He admits that he sometimes exaggerates to make a point, which could have him come across as nasty, while in actuality, he's quite a lovely person to interact with. He holds - how Dutch - that a strong opinion doesn't imply intolerance of other views. * Sometimes he's misunderstood because his wide and diverse field of vision seldomly fits any specialist's box. But that's exactly what some love about him. He has written a lot about Psychology (including Sexuality and Abuse), Medicine (including physical immortality), Science (including basic statistics), Politics (Israel, the US, and the Netherlands, Activism - more than leftwing or rightwing, he hopes to highlight reality), Oppression and Liberation (intersectionally, for young people, the elderly, non-Whites, women, workers, Jews, LGBTQIA+, foreigners and anyone else who's dehumanized or exploited), Integrity, Philosophy, Jews (Judaism, Zionism, Holocaust and Jewish Liberation), the Climate Crisis, Ecology and Veganism, Affairs from the news, or the Torah Portion of the Week, or new insights that suddenly befell him. * Chronologically, his most influential teachers are his parents, Nico (natan) van Zuiden and Betty (beisye) Nieweg, Wim Kan, Mozart, Harvey Jackins, Marshal Rosenberg, Reb Shlomo Carlebach, and, lehavdil bein chayim lechayim, Rabbi Dr. Natan Lopes Cardozo, Rav Zev Leff, and Rav Meir Lubin. This short list doesn't mean to disrespect others who taught him a lot or a little. One of his rabbis calls him Mr. Innovation [Ish haChidushim]. Yet, his originalities seem to root deeply in traditional Judaism, though they may grow in unexpected directions. In fact, he claims he's modernizing nothing. Rather, mainly basing himself on the basic Hebrew Torah text, he tries to rediscover classical Jewish thought almost lost in thousands of years of stifling Gentile domination and Jewish assimilation. (He pleads for a close reading of the Torah instead of going by rough assumptions of what it would probably mean and before fleeing to Commentaries.) This, in all aspects of life, but prominently in the areas of Free Will, Activism, Homosexuality for men, and Redemption. * He hopes that his words will inspire and inform, and disturb the comfortable and comfort the disturbed. He aims to bring a fresh perspective rather than harp on the obvious and familiar. When he can, he loves to write encyclopedic overviews. He doesn't expect his readers to agree. Rather, original minds should be disputed. In short, his main political positions are among others: anti-Trumpism, for Zionism, Intersectionality, non-violence, anti those who abuse democratic liberties, anti the fake ME peace process, for original-Orthodoxy, pro-Science, pro-Free Will, anti-blaming-the-victim, and for down-to-earth, classical optimism, and happiness. Read his blog on how he attempts to bridge any tensions between those ideas or fields. * He is a fetal survivor of the pharmaceutical industry (, born in 1953 to his parents who were Dutch-Jewish Holocaust survivors who met in the largest concentration camp in the Netherlands, Westerbork. He grew up a humble listener. It took him decades to become a speaker too, and decades more to admit to being a genius. But his humility was his to keep. And so was his honesty. Bullies and con artists almost instantaneously envy and hate him. He hopes to bring new things and not just preach to the choir. * He holds a BA in medicine (University of Amsterdam) – is half a doctor. He practices Re-evaluation Co-counseling since 1977, is not an official teacher anymore, and became a friendly, powerful therapist. He became a social activist, became religious, made Aliyah, and raised three wonderful kids. Previously, for decades, he was known to the Jerusalem Post readers as a frequent letter writer. For a couple of years, he was active in hasbara to the Dutch-speaking public. He wrote an unpublished tome about Jewish Free Will. He's a strict vegan since 2008. He's an Orthodox Jew but not a rabbi. * 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. 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 an original 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. * His newest books you may find here:
