Collaborating With the Wrong Higher Authority

Individual Jews’ self-interest throughout history too often guided their behavior to the detriment of the community of Jews, communal interests that would also have benefitted each individual. The self-interest treachery of individual Jews before there was an Israel with its own military derived from their actual or perceived need to survive even when the survival of the Jewish nation was at stake.[1]

The Israel-Hamas war would have been long over but for Biden and Jewish Democrats (1) giving Iran no ultimatum to cause Hamas to release all American and Israeli hostages, (2) demanding aid for complicit Gazan “civilians,” much of which is stolen by Hamas to keep their terror going,(3) imposing impossible rules of engagement that resulted in unnecessary and tragic IDF casualties, and (4) demanding a Palestinian state. “Palestinian leadership will not let the refugee problem be solved. In 1958, former director of UNRWA Ralph Galloway declared angrily while in Jordan that ‘The Arab states do not want to solve the refugee problem. They want to keep it as an open sore, as an affront to the United Nations, and as a weapon against Israel. Arab leaders do not give a damn whether Arab refugees live or die.’”

Spain, Norway and Ireland, each with a Nazi history they would rather forget, plan to recognize a “Palestine State” along pre-1967 boundaries. Sorry, no do-overs, plus as I described in previous blogs, Israel has every legal right to annex any or all of the Mandatory territory. Hamas’s 2006 to October 7, 2023 statelet shows how a failed state evolves.

Biden and these European countries with unfortunate pasts want to overthrow Netanyahu. They are using compliant current and former IDF and politicians, USG and NGO funding, and International lawfare against Israel, Netanyahu and Gallant, for starters. That international lawfare has morphed from Democrat domestic lawfare against President Trump. Aiding and abetting Biden are arrogant and entitled Democrat DNA Jews Blinken, Mayorkas, Garland, Schumer, Sanders, Durbin, Schiff, Nadler and others in Congress, Governors’ mansions, and other positions of power. Enablers include DNA Jews like Soros and left-wing organizations such as the ADL which has been called the “ADL-Judenrat.” “The ADL pretends to be an organization that protects Jews, but it really exists to protect Democrats.” An Open Letter “From Jewish Elected Officials Regarding The War In Gaza” illustrates New York Democrat Jewish elites’ lies about Israel, Hamas and complicit Gazans.

That there are hostages eight months after October 7 is entirely the fault of Hamas and their Gazan Arab and NGO supporters, not Israel. What sense does it make for Biden and Jewish Democrats not to demand the death penalty for Gazan rapists and murders and instead call for more life-giving aid to Hamas and their complicit Gazans? Spare me the “We’re not them.” I still want to know if he US lied to Israel about October 7 as the US lied before the 1973 War, and caused the bad IDF response now as it did then? Why did Minister Gantz, who is not the PM, act unilaterally when he visited Blinken in March? To what higher authority are the loyalties of Minister Gantz and other current and former IDF?

The US and Europe are not Israel’s higher authority. It would be suicide for Israel to kowtow to them. Have American Jews and Israel forgotten Senator Biden’s June 22, 1982 threat to PM Begin to cut off aid to Israel, and Begin’s reply? “Don’t threaten us with cutting off your aid. It will not work. I am not a Jew with trembling knees. I am a proud Jew with 3,700 years of civilized history. Nobody came to our aid when we were dying in the gas chambers and ovens. Nobody came to our aid when we were striving to create our country. We paid for it. We fought for it. We died for it. We will stand by our principles. We will defend them. And, when necessary, we will die for them again, with or without your aid.”

A comment to that report of Biden’s 1982 threat said: “America does not have friends only interests.” A Biden policy advisor to the National Security Council recently told Project Veritas that Biden needs Jewish support for the 2024 election, and “if Biden won again he could be much more forthright about saying ‘No’ [to Israel].” Biden is not Israel’s friend.

The Biden regime and Democrat Jews in power do not demand that Iran cause the immediate release of all hostages — or else. Instead, the US Ambassador to the UN stood for a UN Security Council moment of silence following the announced death of Iran’s Raisi. Biden did not object to “UN flags at half-mast in New York to honor ‘Butcher of Tehran’ Raisi.” The Biden-Blinken State Department sent condolences to the Iran regime. Israel’s UN Ambassador said: “This body, which makes no effort to free our hostages, tipped their heads today to a man who was responsible for the deaths of thousands in Iran, in Israel, and around the world. What’s next? A minute of silence on the anniversary of Hitler’s death?”

An immediate ceasefire and an adjacent Palestinian Arab state mean Israel would be a “Jewish State” with indefensible borders under constant threat of war and annihilation by an adjacent population of murderers and rapists armed with Iranian and Chinese munitions, and having weak-kneed “friends.” Does the global Jewish left buy the nonsense of an immediate ceasefire and a two-state “solution”? Are they different from past Jewish collaborators who believed their masters’ promises would save them, even at the expense of countless murdered Jews? Democrat DNA Jewish individuals and organizations believe their masters will protect them. That they will be proven wrong cannot happen soon enough.

No one disputes the tortured dilemmas faced by captive Jews who ruled over other Jews as Jewish Policemen, Capos, or Judenrat members. No one disputes the pain of the Hamas hostages’ families who are captives of propaganda by Israel’s so-called friends and self-interested Israeli politicians who know better. Israeli politicians do not have the same personal pain of hostage families yet they seem to have masters, whether the left, the American Democrats, the French, the Germans, and the other countries who mourned the death of Iran’s Raisi or are joining in the international court cases against Israel and its leaders. The behavior of these Israeli politicians seems to be moving them closer, like too many Jews of yesteryear, to collaborating with the wrong higher authority.

Robinson depicting Dathan in the Ten Commandments; (2) the story of Judas; (3) the Inquisition’s Alhambra Decree and laws expelling Jews responded to by some Jews participating as oppressors and denouncers as described in the book, Judge Thy Neighbor; and (4) the Nazis’ Judenrat and Jew-Catcher Jews (Greiferin), including (a) the German married Jews, Stella Goldschlag and Rolf Isaaksohn who betrayed childhood friends even as “the Nazis broke their promise to Stella and deported her parents to . . . Auschwitz . . . where they were murdered”; (b) the Dutch Jew “Van Dijk [who] infiltrated the Jewish resistance and pretended to help families and individuals escape or obtain false papers. In reality, she would just deliver them to the Nazis for deportation . . . going as far as trapping her brother and his family. . . and converted to Christianity . . . . In January 1948, van Dijk was executed by firing squad”; and (c) the Greek Jew, Vital Hassan, who “was a native of Thessaloniki, Greece, a cultural capital of the Sephardic Jewish world and a city that once boasted a majority Jewish population, [and] . . . came from an educated, middle-class family of journalists, writers, educators and political leaders. . . . [B]efore the war he was not important, ‘less than nothing,’ according to one of the dozens of Jewish survivors who would subsequently testify against him. . . . Then, war came, transforming Hasson from a nonentity to an important person.”
