Letter from America

Moses had Korach.

We had the 68% of American Jews who voted for Biden.
More Muslims voted for Trump, proportionately, than American Jews.
Why?
What would cause people to vote against their own interests?
“Israel is our greatest ally,” Pence said during his debate with Kamala Harris.
He didn’t say “our greatest ally in the Middle East” but our “greatest ally.”
Pence must have enraged anti-Zionists everywhere.
Surveys show that now, seven decades after the creation of the state of Israel, a majority of American Jews don’t care if Israel continues to exist.
Their statements are available on in articles, and social media.. They are not hiding them.
Jews accuse Israel of apartheid and colonization.
They either don’t know or don’t care that Israel is part of Jewish faith and heritage.
Now they may have helped elect a  cognitively challenged old man who is the titular head of a political party of that spews hatred and division. “You didn’t build that!”, “Systemic racism!”, “White privilege!”, “Fair Share!”
The day after the election, Representative Ilhan Omar (D-MN) said Israel was guilty of ethic cleansing.
Representative Rashida Tlaib (D-MI) claimed apartheid
Representative AOC (D-NY) said we have to re-examine our aid to Israel.
Unlike the miracle of Korach, in which the earth opened up to swallow him and his followers and all their possessions, there will be no divine intervention here. Maybe we don’t deserve it. We didn’t appreciate the simultaneous gift of freedom in the Diaspora and the existence of Medinat Yisroel, to paraphrase Rabbi Jonathan Sacks, OBM. We are now in the hands of the rebels.
We have put the noose around our own necks, have accepted slavery and submission.
Little by little, Jews will be afraid to speak, express support of Israel, identify ourselves as Jews.
