This raises the obvious question, “How can a president who has been so good for the Jewish people fail to receive [the liberal American Jewish community’s] support?”
According to Rubin, one of the tour’s main goals in researching and writing his book was to equip non-Jews with information in the context of what Rubin views as an “onslaught of misinformation” about Israel within the United States. Despite wanting to defend Israel, he said, “sometimes pro-Israel Americans don’t know how to respond with real facts when confronted with the very aggressive anti-Israel, anti-Jewish approach of the Ilhan Omar, Rashida Tlaib and Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez types in American leadership.”
The surprise election of Donald J. Trump as president of the United States evoked passionate reaction across the American political spectrum. It seemed as if not one American was neutral. Trump’s supporters adored him, while the expressions of hatred of many of his opponents defied the norms of civil debate. Well into the Trump presidency, one community, the Jews, on both sides of the ocean, has been on the front lines of the continuing Trump debate that has gripped the nation. Trump’s relationship with the Jewish community is unique in its very personal nature.
Jews fall hard for the vicious far-left, well orchestrated attacks on Trump. His goal was to get facts, not opinions, out to the public. It was very disturbing to find Jews among the audience and speakers at the Women’s March which headlines four anti-Semites.
It is getting worse daily as we witness the 2020 presidential candidates. In a rousing intro to candidate Bernie Sanders at a lively Minnesota rally, Rep. Ilan Omar (D-MN) touted their mutual credentials as fighters for “asylum-seekers” and “the working-class.”
Despite Omar’s record as a hater of Israel and her numerous anti-Semitic statements, the Jewish-American Sanders seems happy to have her support, since they share the Socialist agenda. How can we explain this odd couple, and doesn’t Sanders care about anti-Semitism?
According to Rubin, Israelis support Trump, even through the impeachment trial via the media. He finds many Israelis not interested in it at all. They simply don’t care. They see things clearly. They watched for themselves on tape Joe Biden bragging about his quid pro quo and view Americans as hypocrites.
In the book, Rubin revisits the Obama administration and points out the relationship between the United States and the Islamic world. Biden is tied to all of it, except Obama’s father and stepfather’s backgrounds
Hillary was no Israeli friend either. He points out how President Bill Clinton pressured Israel during his administration and not the Arabs, but made headlines as a “friend” saying Shalom in Hebrew when he attended Yitzhak Rabin’s funeral in 1995. Many were fooled, but not Rubin.
Rubin knows all too well about terror. In 2001, he and his then 3-year-old son were the victims of a terror attack that affects them to this day.
American Jews vs Israeli Jews
Why are Israeli Jews able to see through the media circus of the American political arena?
Rubin and I actually agree—
We, as American Jews, started as legal immigrants, mostly in the early 20th century. We were hardworking people, educating our next generations and feeling pride in our new homeland.
However, along the way, we forgot and abandoned our roots and heritage. Liberalism became the “religion” of most Jews, especially those less observant.
Now, people are searching for an identity— and most of Trump’s support is from the Orthodox community. Many are still searching— and Rubin compares them to that famous Pesach son who doesn’t know how to ask for help.
Israelis, regardless of religious affiliation or background, are Jews. They understand the Jewish heritage and the Israeli Issues. They know what it means to be “The Chosen People.”
Yair Netanyahu recently called President Donald Trump “a rock star.” Rubin wishes more in America looked at him more positively and thinks that historians will look back at his administration more positively than many do today.
He also appreciates the Christian Zionist’s community for President Trump and Israel.
As for Rubin, he looks forward to writing his next book, his seventh. He is the mayor of Shiloh, in Samaria, where archeologists have found Jewish life existed before the First Temple. I was lucky enough to visit there recently.
He is also the founder of the Shiloh Israel Children’s Fund, whose mission is to ease the trauma of terrorism in children and rebuild the biblical heartland of Israel. The vision of Shiloh Israel Children’s Fund is to see generations of children living as a light unto the nations in peace and harmony in the restored biblical heartland of Israel.
He explains with pride how he took his own experience and ability to recover to help others. Children are able to recover using music, art and animation therapy.
