Oppressed minority Democratic US presidential hopefuls do not feel for all Jews

I assumed that President Barak Obama understood racism so well that he also had to understand anti-Semitism. Sadly, I was proven wrong. Not siding with Israel, but being nice to Jews is like opposing feminism, but liking women. And boy, did Obama betray the Jewish state.

It’s so ironic if not outright worrisome that perhaps one of the biggest bigots and most certainly one of the least-refined occupants of the White House, not aware of being targeted by any oppression, loves Jews.

On the Democratic side, we have some 18 contestants already for the job, probably because they think: if Trump can do it, I certainly can. And we see growing proof that the most oppression-aware among them do not identify with the Zionists but with the anti-Zionists.

They will not call out or castigate the Palestinian Authority, The Gaza junta, the Jordan “King,” the Egyptian Parliament or the Arab world in general for their rabid Jew hatred. What would raise eyebrows if done by Germans passes under the radar of these candidates when it’s Arab.

Together with that, they are quick to question and condemn Israel in a fashion and to a degree they would not think of using vis-à-vis one of the US States–neo-colonialism for sure.

They’re not aware of their anti-Jewish prejudice. They don’t proclaim to be Christian supremacists. The loooove Jews. They would genuinely feel hurt if told that their acting seem anti-Jewish. That’s all they understand. That they have no clue about their bias is probably the most worrisome.

* Bernie Saunders, who is a Jew, (not backed by millionaires but a millionaire himself! How did he never admit this?!) is as anti-Zionist as Jeremy Corbyn.
* Pete Buttigieg, who is gay, castigated Netanyahu already as if he is his wicked underling and used Pharisee synonymously with hypocrite. Meanwhile, though, he has disavowed using Pharisee disparagingly.
* Cory Booker, who is Black and asexual, has shown off his Hebrew skills but has not been at Israel’s side when we needed him most.
* Marianne Williamson, who is a Jewish guru, seems enlighten but a-Zionistic.
* Kamala Harris, who is Jamaican, boycotted AIPAC.
* So did Elizabeth Warren, who grew up thinking she was part Native American.
* So did Kirsten Gillibrand, who is part of the Senate Women’s Caucus.
* Beto O’Rourke, who is a WASP, was worst of all, calling Netanyahu a racist but that’s not against our expectations or as dangerous. As was proven shortly after, when he sort of apologized.

Much worse are those liberals who personally experience oppression on a daily basis and still do not stand with the Jewish State.

We also don’t need to pin our hopes on Christian candidates thankful for their Jewish inheritance. (Consider Jimmy Carter!) And Trump is an atheist.

May the L^rd guide all their hearts and guard us.

About the Author
The author is a fetal survivor of the pharmaceutical industry (DES - Diethylstilbestrol), born in 1953 to two Dutch Holocaust 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. * 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 and Rav Zev Leff. * 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, 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. Many people can't understand or like him because he has such a wide vision that he never fits any specialist's box. But that exactly what others 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. * He likes doing age-appropriate and age-inappropriate things and looks forward to getting to know his timeless mature out-of-the-box soul mate. * To send any personal reaction to him, scroll to the top of the blog post and click Contact Me.
