Jews Against Soros (JAS) or against all Jews?

Watch the words. For honest people, they have meaning.

But as soon as words are discovered to hide the opposite of what they claim, they will be upgraded to try and hide anew the hidden intentions. That’s a constant in Antisemitism: continuously morphing the appearance of the same hatred.

We must not mince words. Only integrity and clarity can defeat the lies and myths about Jews.


Why does their group name JAS profile them as Jews? Why not as conservatives (CAS) or USers (UAS)?

Clearly, it’s named like this to give a kosher stamp to Gentiles also agitating against Soros. Every self-respecting Antisemite has Jewish friends to prove their saintliness. Even the present butchers of Iran.

I wouldn’t call the JAS duo self-hating Jews because that puts too much blame on them. After all, they too are oppressed as Jews, and we don’t blame the victim. Many Jews outside of Israel are still too terrified to acknowledge the hatred. They are naive against their own best judgment.

The only substantial claim on their website is this is not Antisemitic. Oy Way when you need to explain you’re not Antisemitic.

Writing about the trial, conviction, and aftermath of Ponzi schemer Madoff, no one needed to explain it was not Jew-hatred!

The worst is that they don’t distance themselves from wicked Gentiles Against Soros. Musk even calls Soros a hater of humanity. ‘I know him.’ That is a code for Untermensch, someone supposedly sub-human.


Why Soros? Almost all US Jews are progressive. Why pick on a rare super-rich one? Simple. That’s what Antisemites do. They used to pick on ‘the Rothschilds,’ but that’s exposed as Jew-hatred, so they altered the word.

Even if he funds many left-wing causes, the fact finders leaving out the dozens of right-wing US political philanthropists is obviously biased.

Soros is problematized to distract from trouble by the ilk of Musk.

Jewish Conservatives

The concept of ‘Jewish conservatives’ is like ‘violent pacifists.’ Jewish culture and its religion push toward standing with the powerless. As a religious Jewish entrepreneurial friend of mine once said to another friend: ‘My Judaism puts a limit on how much I can be a capitalist.’

We try to conserve our stance, but that ‘forces’ us to be progressives.

The JAS’s self-identification as conservatives proves that they left the whole wide spectrum of Jewish lifestyles and assimilated and huddle with unhumble Gentiles. (Soon, I hope to publish a lengthy post of religious Jews pretending to fully agree with Gentile Monotheists.)

A Jewish-American friend of mine sees it differently. He says: Antisemitism of the left pushes the Jewish left back into isolation, away from Gentiles, including those who need solidarity.

Both visions have in common that Jews will only stop being their generous selves (and thus turn conservative) from intimidation by bad Gentiles.

Nothing wrong with Jewish-Gentile cooperation, as long as the Jews can be Jews—and not the ones to approve of unkosher Gentile choices.


Tell me who your enemies are and you show who you are.

Musk greatly fueled the Let’s Hate the Jewish Soros movement on top of having become a major spreader of Jew-hatred. In related racism, he just now pushed a transphobic clip.

Transgenders are among the weakest in society. The cowards that bigots are always attack the weakest first.

That looks dishonorable but they justify their vile bloodthirst by portraying the victims as powerful, evil conspirators and themselves as their victims. Hitler as victim of ‘the Jews.’ In hatred, there is nothing new under the sun.

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:
