The Ultra-Super Sophisticated Progressive-Left Genius Jews

There seems to be a new (or, perhaps, not so new) ultra-super sophisticated progressive-left genius Jew on the scene that understands that persecuting Jews is actually good for the Jewish people.  They seem to think that in order to support Israel one must punish the Jewish state, push it around, and put the lives of its citizenry at risk.

I must admit this all seems rather counter-intuitive, does it not?  They honestly want us to believe that the best way to show one’s friendship to Israel, as a Jew, is to support those who undermine the well-being of that country for it’s own best benefit… natch.

This is something that the ultra-super sophisticated progressive-left genius Jewish supporter of Barack Obama understands, but that the rest of us, in our ignorance, in our simple-minded understanding of right and wrong, are quite incapable of.

Please allow me to illustrate.

The ultra-super sophisticated progressive-left genius Jew sees Barack Obama wreck whatever small potential their might have been in the peace process, blame that failure on Israelis, and still believes that Obama is the very best friend that Israel has ever had in a president of the United States. The ultra-super sophisticated progressive-left genius Jew sees Barack Obama’s racist demand that Jews not be allowed to build in Judea and Samaria, because neither the Palestinians nor Mahmoud Abbas can tolerate a Jewish presence in land where Jews originally came from, and yet still believes that Obama is the very best friend that Israel has ever had in a president of the United States.

The ultra-super sophisticated progressive-left genius Jew sees the Democratic party downgrade support for Israel in its party platform and doesn’t really mind.  Or, if they do mind, they are certainly not so uncouth as to complain about it in public.

And, needless to say, the ultra-super sophisticated progressive-left genius Jew sees Barack Obama help usher the Muslim Brotherhood, the most genocidally anti-Semitic organization in the world today, into power in Egypt, a country with ten times Israel’s population, and understands that this is a dandy thing; a credit to Obama’s foresight, sophistication, and great love of the Jewish people and of democracy.

The problem is that there are any number of backward-looking, unsophisticated, dull-witted Jews who fail to understand that the best way to help Israel is to kick its ass.  David Landau, an editor for Ha’aretz, is such an ultra-super sophisticated progressive-left genius Jew that he even suggested that it was his “wet dream” to see America “rape” Israel in order to force Israeli compliance to Obama administration wishes.

Most American Jews, thankfully, are not ultra-super sophisticated progressive-left genius Jews, but it is the genius Jews that most loudly sing the praises of an administration that is friendly toward political Islam.  Political Islam, needless to say, seeks to oppress women, commit genocide upon the Jewish people, slaughter Gay people outright, and impose Islamic Supremacy, via sharia, upon the west.

A recent poll from the Israel Democracy Institute and Tel Aviv University shows that the great majority of Jewish Israelis are not ultra-super sophisticated progressive-left genius Jews and, thus, do not support the Obama administration in its efforts to gain another four years of power.  One can only hope that in America the majority of Jewish voters will, before election day, come to understand that supporting political Islam, as this president does, is not good for Jewish people, not good for women, not good for Gay people, and certainly not good for the west, in general.

Sadly, this does not look likely to be the case.

My bet has been that Jewish support for Obama will decline from near 80 percent in 2008 to something around 65 percent, or slightly under, in 2012.  That is a significant drop in support, but it is not nearly sufficient.

The ultra-super sophisticated progressive-left genius Jews have done their work well.
