Trump and the US People have long been reported as Israel’s friends but …

Unfortunately, there are some signs that Israel must be very cautious about what wind will blow towards it from the US Government.

  1. Where is Jonathan Pollard? Still not free to go.
  2. Why can’t we see the Deal of the Century before the elections?
  3. The “moving” of the US Embassy to Jerusalem was actually cosmetic. Most of the embassy workers and work are still in Tel Aviv.
  4. Staunch allies of Israel in the US House of Representatives turned out unable to univocally and clearly condemn an anti-Semite in her midst.
  5. There are two anti-Israel legally binding documents in the State Department that are anti-Israel, one public and one secret.
  6. The most powerful Democratic candidate running for 2020 would be the most anti-Israel president that we’ve had since Carter. Mind you.
  7. After not being concerned about anti-Semitism on the Internet and at universities, it is more alive than at any time in the last 20 years.
  8. Major chic US national newspaper keeps issuing anti-Jewish editorials.

I don’t doubt what’s in the hearts of President Trump and the American People regarding Jews and Israel but somehow deeds speak louder than words and these deeds don’t sound good at all lately.

It’s bad to have many enemies. It’s worse to be shot in the back by friends. Israelis (and Americans) must stop being naive about the forces of anti-Semitism. And Israelis should vote for safety which means voting for the right (as I recently blogged). Paranoids have enemies too.

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 He wrote an unpublished tome about Jewish Free Will.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.
