The US rich are sowing hatred of Israel to blame Jews for Trump’s economic crash

It’s the oldest story in the book (as I explained at length before) — with a modern twist. The rulers and rich demand the services of Jews. Some Jews, seeing no one else to rely on, comply. When the economic chips are going down, the population is threatening to revolt. Then, the real makers and shakers, behind the scene, release slander on the Jews to anger the general population. The goal is that it will cool its anger on the Jews and not on the real powers that be.

The whole time I wondered, how would it be played out? Now I see it. It’s not Trump who’s going after the Jews. He’s only been the useful idiot of the rich and famous. Now he’s running out of steam and they got their massive tax cuts for years to come, he needs to be replaced and someone needs to be blamed for the mess: the Jews.

As I reported previously, on September 12, Politico published an implausible story from three anonymous “former top U.S. officials” that Israel would have been spying on the US, on President Trump for two years. I suggested how the whole thing had been set and made up to try and stop Trump from releasing Jonathan Pollard.

Within a week, September 18, a former Trump Secretary of State complains in the news, how Netanyahu would trick Trump — what should not be expected from such a close friend. I explained how many holes there are in this story. I mentioned that this is the second complaint about Israel in a week from people close to the White House. Yet, I added that I wasn’t saying that there must be a connection. And twice isn’t a trend yet. But, combined with a sharp rise in anti-Semitic violence in the US, this kind of innuendo is surely most undesirable.

After another half a week, September 22, a reputable Washington publication brings a six-part article on how Israel 40 years ago, held a nuclear test without letting its ally, the US, know — that then had to lie to not upset the [powerful] State of Israel — how preposterous.

OK, for me it’s official. Three events in 10 days is a trend. The US billionaires’ class runs a campaign to promote the lie to the American public that Israel is not their friend. This implies that neither US Jews are and that they are responsible for Trump’s economic house of cards coming down soon and any economic hardship for millions of USers.

Do you want to hold Trump and the rulers who bought Washington responsible for the financial disaster they created? The super-rich sucked up billions more in the last two years. They are about to get away with it again by blaming the Jews.

What to do?
1. Voice solidarity with Israel and US Jews, no questions asked. (Then the owning class can’t hold Jews hostage anymore and will they all be free to speak their mind and join the other liberation groups without fear.)
2. Show how all this anti-Israel propaganda comes from the same circles.
3. Show how all these stories contain big lies and false innuendo.

In case you think I’m paranoid, as Kissinger said: Paranoids may have enemies too. Or more popular: Just the fact that you’re paranoid doesn’t mean that they’re not after you. But seriously, it’s just history all over again. It’s up to the Gentile masses to stop this. In their own interest. It’s not that Jews have no friends. We have many noble ones, especially in the US. But they tend to be naive and passive in the face of real evil.

About the Author
MM is a prolific and creative writer and thinker, previously a daily blog contributor to the TOI. He often makes his readers laugh, mad, or assume he's nuts—close to perfect blogging. He's proud that his analytical short comments are removed both from left-wing and right-wing news sites. None of his content is generated by the new bore on the block, AI. * As a frontier thinker, he sees things many don't yet. He's half a prophet. Half. Let's not exaggerate. Or not at all because he doesn't claim G^d talks to him. He gives him good ideas—that's all. MM doesn't believe that people observe and think in a vacuum. He, therefore, wanted a broad bio that readers interested can track a bit what (lack of) backgrounds, experiences, and educations contribute to his visions. * This year, he will prioritize getting his unpublished books published rather than just blog posts. Next year, he hopes to focus on activism against human extinction. To find less-recent posts on a subject XXX among his over 2000 archived ones, go to the right-top corner of a Times of Israel page, click on the search icon and search "zuiden, XXX". One can find a second, wilder blog, to which one may subscribe too, here: or by clicking on the globe icon next to his picture on top. * Like most of his readers, he believes in being friendly, respectful, and loyal. However, if you think those are his absolute top priorities, you might end up disappointed. His first loyalty is to the truth. He will try to stay within the limits of democratic and Jewish law, but he won't lie to support opinions or people when don't deserve that. (Yet, we all make honest mistakes, which is just fine and does not justify losing support.) He admits that he sometimes exaggerates 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. * Sometimes he's misunderstood because his wide and diverse field of vision seldomly fits any specialist's box. But that's exactly what some love about him. He has written a lot about Psychology (including Sexuality and Abuse), Medicine (including physical immortality), Science (including basic statistics), Politics (Israel, the US, and the Netherlands, Activism - more than leftwing or rightwing, he hopes to highlight reality), 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), the Climate Crisis, Ecology and Veganism, Affairs from the news, or the Torah Portion of the Week, or new insights that suddenly befell him. * Chronologically, his most influential teachers 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. This short list doesn't mean to disrespect others who taught him a lot or a little. One of his rabbis calls him Mr. Innovation [Ish haChidushim]. Yet, his originalities seem to root deeply in traditional Judaism, though they may grow in unexpected directions. In fact, he claims he's modernizing nothing. Rather, mainly basing himself on the basic Hebrew Torah text, he tries to rediscover classical Jewish thought almost lost in thousands of years of stifling Gentile domination and Jewish assimilation. (He pleads for a close reading of the Torah instead of going by rough assumptions of what it would probably mean and before fleeing to Commentaries.) This, in all aspects of life, but prominently in the areas of Free Will, Activism, Homosexuality for men, and Redemption. * He hopes that his words will inspire and inform, and disturb the comfortable and comfort the disturbed. He aims to bring a fresh perspective rather than harp on the obvious and familiar. When he can, he loves to write encyclopedic overviews. He doesn't expect his readers to agree. Rather, original minds should be disputed. In short, his main political positions are among others: anti-Trumpism, for Zionism, Intersectionality, non-violence, anti those who abuse democratic liberties, anti the fake ME peace process, for original-Orthodoxy, pro-Science, pro-Free Will, anti-blaming-the-victim, and for down-to-earth, classical optimism, and happiness. Read his blog on how he attempts to bridge any tensions between those ideas or fields. * He is a fetal survivor of the pharmaceutical industry (, born in 1953 to his parents who were Dutch-Jewish Holocaust survivors who met in the largest concentration camp in the Netherlands, Westerbork. 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 holds a BA in medicine (University of Amsterdam) – is half a doctor. He practices Re-evaluation Co-counseling since 1977, is not an official teacher anymore, and became a friendly, powerful therapist. He became a social activist, became religious, made Aliyah, and raised three wonderful kids. Previously, for decades, he was known to the Jerusalem Post readers as a frequent letter writer. For a couple of years, he was active in hasbara to the Dutch-speaking public. 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 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. 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 an original 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. * His newest books you may find here:
