Let’s blame Mnuchin and Kushner, not Trump

It’s the oldest trick in the anti-Jewish book. The Haves hire Jews to be their most visible allies and representatives, insincerely constantly praising them in public, and as soon as the population revolts, its anger will go onto the Jews so that the really powerful stay out of range.

One could ask: but why do these Jews lend themselves to be the executioners of the wealthy? The true answer is: because they have no other allies. Those activists, with their honest anti-Jewish bigotry, who attack the Jews, in fact, keep them in their hostage situation.

I’ve already heard a prime-time very intelligent anti-bigotry and powerful anti-Trump TV presenter call Mnuchin a favorite of the Devil – such a powerful anti-Semitic image. Mnuchin has designed robbing would-be immigrants of their young children (missing is: to harvest them for the blood) and in any case, it’s clear that he’s subhuman (Untermensch).

Now, mind you, this educated RC anchor does not like anti-Semitism, is not aware of that he’s promoting hatred of Jews, but he’s doing it nonetheless. And he’s not the problem. The problems are:

  • Jews being held hostage by the reactionary because the “more enlightened” never liked the Jews and show it.
  • Too little awareness that Kushner and Mnuchin are the victims, not the evil geniuses responsible. Stop blaming the victims.

Trump has thrown under the bus: the Workers (by lying to them that he will save them while stealing their money, giving it to the exuberant rich and making the deficit so insane that working America may pay that bill for decades to come), women (grab them), “people of color,” the handicapped, you name them. Any doubt in anyone’s mind that he will not spare the Jews? It’s happening already.

You don’t think so? Look at (just in): Missouri Republican who said ‘Hitler was right’ wins state House primary! NB: The problem is not that he thinks so – the problem was that he was elected with 50% of the votes.

Just like Obama’s leadership revealed a lot of unspoken racism (he was called dumb more often than they called Bush jr. stupid and Obama may be a lot of things but his IQ is fine) that has not been dealt with, Trump’s visible Jews make Jew-hatred come forth to a degree we have not seen in the US in half a century, and it is becoming a real problem.

Call a Trump a Trump, don’t blame the Jews and remember, I told you so.

About the Author
MM is a prolific and creative writer and thinker, a daily blog contributor to the TOI. He often makes his readers laugh, mad, or assume he's nuts—close to perfect blogging. As a frontier thinker, he sees things many don't yet. He's half a prophet. Half. Let's not exaggerate. 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 is a fetal survivor of the pharmaceutical industry (, 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 strict vegan since 2008. 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, lehavdil 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, LGBTQIA, 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 quite 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 500th 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 find his earlier blog posts on a certain subject XXX, among his over 1200 ones, go to the right-top corner of the Times of Israel page, click on the search icon and search "zuiden, XXX". His second daily active less tame blog, to which one may subscribe, one may find here: or by clicking on the globe icon next to his picture on top. * To send any personal reaction to him, scroll to the top of the blog post and click Contact Me.
