The Democratic Party Supports Anti-Jewish Genocide

Hopefully, we have heard the last of the Russian collusion narrative, the cudgel that sore-loser Democrats trotted out to beat down the Trump administration. Among its purposes, to sustain the Obama Middle East policy by continuing to support Iran and to undermine Israel.

Yes, indeed. While everyone is ranting about Russian collusion the Obama administration and its satraps were colluding with Iran to destroy Israel. Now, the Biden campaign has written up the Middle East plank to its campaign platform, and, would you believe, it is starkly opposed to Israel. It is also opposed to the reformists in the Gulf Arab states.

Naturally, it was happy to throw Jewish Democrats a bone. Most of them will support the Democratic Party, no matter what. That means, no matter how anti-Semitic it has become.

Bruce Abramson and Jeff Ballabon outlined the problems in Newsweek (via Maggie’s Farm). They begin by reminding us of one of the worst aspects of the Obama administration Israel policy. It involved compromising Israeli intelligence and sabotaging Israeli operations. As a contrast, recently someone attacked Iran’s nuclear installations, setting back their nuclear program. Most savvy observers believe that Israel was responsible. Obviously, under a Biden presidency, the Iranians would have been tipped off in advance.

Speaking of Jewish Democrats:

They know that much as they may have admired the Obama-Biden administration on other grounds, its "daylight" doctrine had been an unmitigated disaster for Israel. In a stark, stunning and explicit departure from decades of bipartisan U.S. policy promising "no daylight" and "no surprises" between the allies, Barack Obama, Joe Biden, Hillary Clinton and John Kerry revealed Israeli intelligence, sabotaged operations and engaged in stealthy diplomatic attacks on the Jewish state—culminating in the notorious UNSC 2334 declaration that the mere act of Jews living in Judea is criminal. The party's progressive base has made no secret of its desire to pocket 2334 and orient American policy in directions increasingly antagonistic towards Israel—and increasingly dangerous to Jewish life. The purported "pro-Israel" Democrats needed a pro-Israel platform for assurance.

Now that the Democratic National Committee has released its platform, the Iranians are cheering. They are doing so openly, because they know that American Jews are not smart enough to understand what is happening:

But the Democratic National Committee released a platform 180 degrees off from the spin. It's so pro-Iran that the National Iranian-American Council, the de facto Iranian regime lobby in Washington, immediately "applauded" the DNC "for its forward-leaning platform commitments on issues of importance to the Iranian-American community." It demonstrates that President Obama's curious preference for the supremacists running the Islamic Republic of Iran and the Muslim Brotherhood, rather than our traditional regional allies, has become mainstream Democratic ideology.

That is to say, the Democratic Party has become the party of Anti-Semitism-- but at least it isn’t racist.

Compare to the Trump record:

Trump administration policies have brought the bloody Islamic Republic to its knees. The Democrats seek to restore its vitality by ending sanctions and re-entering President Obama's odious Iran deal. Every faction across Israel's notoriously fractious political spectrum agreed that this deal was an existential threat. Biden and the 2020 Democrats take the opposing view: Regime change is wrong; diplomacy and economic engagement can restrain the mullahs.

Just as important is the fact that the Democratic Party, in its lust to support Iran and to work to destroy Israel, is taking aim at Israeli and American allies in the region-- the Gulf Arab states. Note well, the authors emphasize the fact that while Iran imposes strict shariah law, these Muslim states have been moving toward significant cultural reform. Naturally, the Democratic Party cannot tolerate that. So, we have the pathetic spectacle of feminists lining up to support a party that wants to validate the rule of the mullahs, one of the most misogynist regimes on the planet:

Next up, the Gulf Arabs: A new generation of leaders have recently expanded women's rights, confronted Islamism, acted to curb terrorism, deepened ties to the U.S. and moved towards ending the Arab/Israeli conflict. Biden and the 2020 Democrats prefer to "reset" those warm relations in order to keep America's traditional Gulf allies at arms length.

The Democratic platform does propose a small American troop presence, the better to do what the Obama administration failed to do. That is, to end the ISIS caliphate. Did anyone notice that before Obama there was no caliphate. After Obama there was no caliphate. During Obama there was a caliphate. Seriously, do you trust Joe Biden to stop the return of the caliphate?

The authors argue that the presence of American troops will ultimately serve merely to inhibit the actions of Israeli troops, troops that have been destroying Iranian bases in Syria:

Beyond merely calling to strengthen the genocidal Iranian regime while weakening reformers seeking to integrate Israel into the broader region, the platform also advocates a "small, finite and focused" U.S. troop presence nonetheless capable of training the Iraqi military and Syrian militias, stabilizing both countries, securing the Kurds and preventing a resurgence of the ISIS caliphate. Left unsaid is that such a presence does little more than dare belligerents to attack Americans while constraining Israeli freedom of action.

The Democratic Party sees no difference between Israel and the terrorists of the Palestinian Authority. It believes in paying off people who have committed terrorist acts. When will these fools learn that the best approach to terrorism is to starve the beast, to declare that the terrorists have forfeited all rights, except the right to surrender:

It baldly equates America's loyal, liberal, democratic ally Israel with a corrupt, genocidal and profoundly anti-American terror organization that wreaks havoc on Jewish lives and perpetuates the squalid misery of Arabs under its yoke. It equates Jewish homeownership in disputed areas—to which Israel possesses by far the best historical and legal claims—not with Arab homeownership in those same disputed areas, but with Arab terror.

Having thus undermined Israel's right to exist, the platform calls for an unconditional commitment to restore Palestinian Authority (PA) funding that the U.S. has withheld until the PA ends its program of paying for murder, popularly known as "pay-for-slay." The PA's response to this American demand has been utter rejectionism; billionaire terror-chief Mahmoud Abbas insists on his right to use American money to fund terror.

As it happens, one is somewhat surprised to read the following in a mainstream publication like Newsweek.

With this Israel plank in its platform, Joe Biden and the 2020 Democrats have effectively adopted the terrorists' creed, excusing, justifying and encouraging the murder of Jews, denying history and law, and promoting the continued rise of global anti-Semitism. While the platform committee may have allowed the purportedly "pro-Israel" operatives to remove the word "occupation" from the text, its substance reaffirms the Democrats' commitment to the unspeakably anti-Semitic and anti-American notion of "judenrein" territory—the ethnic cleansing of Jews from their historic homeland. Selected details and linguistic niceties cannot spin away the platform's substantive anti-Jewish reality.

It is both telling and terrifying that purportedly "pro-Israel" Democrats have cast this disastrous platform as a victory. The platform's avoidance of the term "occupation" and its mild critique of BDS are smokescreens intended to let pro-Israel voters convince themselves that they're not voting for anti-Jewish genocide.

Surely, the Squad is smiling.

I am amazed that NEWSWEEK would say the Dems are doing wrong on Israel. I have to wonder how many subscribers will cancel.

"Democratic Party Supports Anti-Jewish Genocide" ?!?

So does that meant the Democrat Party demands genocide of all Anti-Semites?

My crystal ball predicts that a supermajority of Jews will vote Democrat in 2020. Go figure.

This is “Never Again”?
