For three-and-a-half millennia, the Jewish people have poured our heart and soul into Israel. From the ascendance of Moses to Mount Sinai, King David’s declaration of the Jewish land, and this singular moment, we have survived the most indescribable savagery and barbarism in world history.
The Romans, the Byzantines, the Greeks, Alexander the Great, and the National Socialists, all in their uniquely twisted and conspiratorial methods, have dedicated themselves to our demise. Yes, we may have been conquered, traumatized, and persecuted to the point of near extinction; regardless, our existence is never vanquished as our enemies so desperately desire. In the seventh century, the Arabs were the first to expel the Jews from what was rightfully our land and flung us from our farms. Not only did they destroy the fertility of all life in then-Palestine, as Mark Twain called it a “treeless” wasteland before the Jews returned, but the creators of classic and contemporary antisemitic propaganda cast us out with genocidal military colonies and made us a minority in our own homeland.
As I write this post, I see pro-Hamas antisemites walking the streets of America’s capital. They are guided by the false “native vs. colonizer” narrative at our disgraced universities; however, what they ought to teach these brazen Islamic Fascists is that the Jews are the victims of a genocide and are natives in their own homeland. The Jews are holding fast to our sense of belonging after centuries of being ousted to the far reaches of human civilization at our own expense and at the cost of our very lives. Regardless, we have never disappeared, and we will not vanish today.
We invited the “Palestinians” to our homeland of Israel in the 19th century. They never wanted a two-state solution and their electoral majorities voted in the terrorist organization Hamas in 2007 and have ever since. The events of October 7, 2023, marked a turning point for Jews, Americans, and all lovers of liberty. Then and now, we will always say “next year in Jerusalem” as it is our home forever and will defend it until the end.
