The messes in Syria, Europe, the US and Palestine are all because of Israeli Jews!

No, I did not become an anti-Semite blaming all ills on the Jews, especially not those troubles nothing to do with them. Then on what do I base this? Some Jews think that all of mankind resolves around the Jews. All Peoples in the world should see themselves as important, but egocentricity should be the sole possession of simple people – not leaders. Some leading rabbis have explained that all human suffering in the world happens to wake up the Jews to repent. That’s not so bad, because that preaches compassion and being responsible. No, none of this is not what I want to claim here.

Give me a moment then to explain this headline my way, in four ways.

The dictator of Syria who gassed his own civilians should have been kicked out years ago. There was a problem with this. The two groups who were fighting each other and Assad both were even worse for Israel than Assad. So Israel and its allies had no alternative for Assad. Therefore, no one could support one club of murderers over the others. (The Kurds did proclaim friendship with Israel but somehow they never got the outside military support they should have.) The Syrian civil war (so much for civil) so went on and on and on. If only, one of the powerful armies had proclaimed to be for the Jewish state — but none did.

Syrian refugees fled to Europe in great numbers, terrorists hiding between them. The same Europe that had blamed Israeli Jews for causing Arab terrorism in Israel. At the present, Israel is well protected against terrorists, but Europe is not (not physically and not emotionally — Germany committing suicide?). What would have happened if they would not have abandoned us all those years? (I have great respect for Germany, how it rehabilitated itself, but Germany also blames us for the anti-Semitic attacks on our civilians by Muslims.)

September 11, 2001, do you know what was written on the front pages of the morning papers around the world? I tell you. For umpteenth day in a row, Israel was slandered for being the Devil’s headquarter — the enlightened pronouncements of the UN World Conference Against Racism in Durban, South-Africa, hijacked by anti-Semites. My theory is that the L^rd of the Universe was sick and tired of seeing the apple of His eye being insulted on a daily basis. Unfortunately, it was replaced by the massive anti-Semitic terror attack that showed the evil of these Jew-haters (no one accused the US of causing this) that would plunge the US into a costly war that sunk its economy as nothing else had in recent memory. We never heard from this Durban conference again. Europe can stop blaming Israel for our “racism” against the Arab Palestinians. How much tolerance should our Father in Heaven have with this slander? Now they got their own Middle East Arabs — good luck!

Would you like to be an Arab Palestinian? Why are their lives such a mess? When will they throw out their corrupt leaders and demand a peaceful life close to and together with the Jews? Could one do better than live with the Jews?! On the whole, we’re such a sweet bunch. Maybe Trump can help.

When will the world finally stand with Israel all the way? It’s the only approach to be all safe. As it says numerous times in the Bible: who blesses us will be blessed; who curses us will be cursed. Even atheists could learn this as they do subscribe to history; and this is what history teaches until today.

About the Author
MM is a prolific and creative writer and thinker, a daily blog contributor to the TOI. 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 vegan for 8 years now. 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 lehavdiel 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, GLBTQAI, 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 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. 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 send any personal reaction to him, scroll to the top of the blog post and click Contact Me.
