Consequences of moving the US Embassy to Jerusalem. The revolt that never happened

US President Trump and his administration, the House and US UN Ambassador, 46th US President Nimrata “Nikki” Haley (née Randhawa) and the whole of Israel were ready for the bloody “consequences” of going by what is true, real and fair.

That never came.

Remember the Millennium Bug? On January first, 2000, all old computers would come to a screeching halt, returning to the first day of 1900, leaving us without water, electricity and what not. Billions were spent on prevention but that was just a drop in the ocean. We braced ourselves and … worldwide, nothing happened.

Remember the Chicken Flu Epidemic? It would kill more people than the Spanish Flu Epidemic. It could take the lives of billions. We bought special dry soaps that could be used anywhere. In the Netherlands (where people don’t hug but kiss on cheeks and mostly shake hands) people trained to literally start rubbing elbows as a way to greet. We braced ourselves and … worldwide, nothing happened.

Remember the Opening of the US Embassy in Jerusalem? Marines were flexed to the Middle East to bolster security at embassies across the region. Three months of security preparations screamed another headline. The atmosphere was jubilant, but behind the scenes, countless people worked to prevent any violence. We braced ourselves and … worldwide, nothing happened.

Yes, ten thousands of murderous poor devils from the Gazan junta tried to breach the border with Israel, but that we’ve seen that for weeks and the army was prepared.

Terrorists on the loose tried to get into the spotlight too. But they want to murder Jews and their friends anyway anytime anywhere. It’s just special to do that in honor of special occasions, but don’t think for a minute that if we’d keep a low profile, they would start cuddling us.

May the great outcome of this embassy move move more nations to follow the US’s example and finally be brave enough to state their undivided love for the Jewish People in undivided Jerusalem soon.

Remember the 1972 The Limits to Growth by the Club of Rome? It sold 30 million copies in more than 30 languages, predicting that there is an environmental limit to growth. We didn’t brace ourselves and … worldwide, it’s happening…. See one of my next blog posts.

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. 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.
