Bernie Sanders now has made anti-Zionism a core point of his campaign

Don’t trash him — ignore him
Make America Think Harder - the Yang Gang cap, suitable for shul and school.
Make America Think Harder - the Yang Gang cap, suitable for shul and school.

You don’t need to believe me — yes, it’s still kind of unbelievable to me. We read and hear how the Jewish Democratic Salon Socialist candidate for the 2020 US presidential elections has teamed up with one of the top leaders of anti-Israel sentiments in the US. A woman who has never been caught saying one truthful sentence.

The opinions of Sanders, of the leader of UK’s Labour Party, and of the anti-Zionist daily Haaretz have long been indistinguishable. But to openly align himself with someone with the same love for truth as Donald Trump?

How could such a reputable honest person as Sanders do so? There is only one explanation: hatred. Hatred makes for strange bedfellows.

But love will win out. So, from now on, just ignore him already.

Focus on other candidates with great minds who are not anti-Israel.

Pete Buttigieg, we discussed already. Too distant to Jews. Elisabeth Warren doesn’t seem up to liking Zionism. (Great minds are not all it takes.)

But, Andrew Yong comes to mind. Make America Think Again. Listen to him. You’d love it. His parents are Chinese immigrants. Only Asia and Pacific isles stood by all Jews fleeing Hitler. Don’t squander that.

Besides, how refreshing are his thinking outside of the box, his humility, his intention to have smart Republicans and Democrats in his Administration.

It must be woman you vote for? Try Amy Klobuchar.

About the Author
The author is a fetal survivor of the pharmaceutical industry (DES - Diethylstilbestrol), 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 He wrote an unpublished tome about Jewish Free Will.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. * To send any personal reaction to him, scroll to the top of the blog post and click Contact Me.
