What Will It Take to Wake Jews Up?

Pages: 1 2

Of course, not everyone who is on the left — and certainly not the traditional liberal — is an enemy of the Jews. But, aside from Islamists, virtually all the enemies of the Jews are on the left.

The worldwide campaign to delegitimize Israel (i.e., to pave the way for moral acceptance of Israel’s destruction) is virtually all on the left. Universities in America and elsewhere in the Western world, as well as the mainstream news media outlets around the globe, are all dominated by the left. They drum into their students’, readers’, listeners’ and viewers’ minds that Israel is one of the worst societies on earth.

The anti-Israel propaganda on the left is so great and so effective that according to the Jewish Telegraphic Agency, “Many of the youths who survived the (Norway) massacre said they thought the killer, dressed as a police officer, was simulating Israeli crimes against Palestinians in the occupied territories.”

Yet, most American Jews still walk around thinking that Christians and conservatives are their enemies when, in fact, they are the best friends Jews have in the world today. From the present conservative Canadian government, which is probably the most vocal pro-Israel country in the world today, to every major conservative talk-show host in America (including the fiercely pro-Jewish and pro-Israel Glenn Beck, who has been libeled as an anti-Semite), to the leader of Holland’s Party for Freedom and member of the Dutch parliament, Geert Wilders (one of the most eloquent pro-Israel voices in Europe today), to The Wall Street Journal’s editorial page — the right is where the Jews’ friends are.

What will it take for this generation of Jews on the left to realize what Arthur Koestler, perhaps the most prominent Jewish leftist of a previous generation, came to realize: namely, that leftism is “the god that failed”? Will it take a San Francisco ban on the oldest practice of the Jewish people? The City of Berkeley declaring Marines “unwelcome intruders”? PETA arguing that there is no moral difference between barbecuing chickens and cremating Jews? The ostracizing of the Jewish state from the world community by institutions dominated by the left?

Whatever it takes, the sooner the better.

    But… if cirumcision is banned in San Francisco, how will "Rabbi" Michael Lerner preside over brit milah ceremonies for the children of his congregants????

    Mr. Prager, You always strive to clarity and impeccable logic, yet unfortunately not this time.

    1) Nowadays you must not use generic term "Jews" without an additional specification: Did you mean spiritual or "nothing-but-ethnic" Jews?

    Many in the latter category are in fact in front lines of the struggle against the Brit-Milah for many years! They are authors of numerous anti-circumcision books, web sites, et cetera! How on Earth can you expect of them to wake up because of this blatant anti-Jewish (and anti-Constitutional) act inSane Fransico while some of them were just behind it?!

    2) The anti-circumcision legislation is directed against Judaism indeed. And so does the legitimization of homosexual propaganda up to pushing it into the schools. The school defiles and depraves each and every (Jewish) kid which is unfortunate to be sent their.

    Have you seen any Jews wake up? Have you seen at least one "rabbi" wake up? How is the anti-circumcision law worse than forceful depravation of kids and promotion of the abomination?

    3) Contrary to your naive hope, the recent history teaches us that our "hard necked" people is capable to wake up only when they finally find themselves in Auschwitz or something analogous. Some could not wake up even in Stalin's dungeons, like those henchmen of Bolsheviks who shouted that they are dying for Stalin before their execution.

      sorry ,bodily mutilation is a very real and devastating trauma. it is a biological and psychological catastrophe and man many jewish physicians and psychologists admit that and are wary of the permanent damage that can be incurred but usually is not linked to this trauma. At least a dozen brilliant ,courageous and honest therapists had been demonized and destroyed simply because they exposed the hidden effects on body and soul. . the anti mutilation movements are not against judaism nor islam. this is a fact whether you like it or not. it is sad that you were made to believe that this ritual mutilation is some holy act. it is foolish and irrational to think that some god would create an organism and then require destruction of the most private intimate and pleasurable areas. does it not occur to those who are raging for this mutilation that this is a trauma based method of social control and is it not very odd that it targets a healthy pleasureable part of the anatomy.

      this is strictly an ethical and humane issue and not in any way religious. the rabbis and sheikhs refuse to see this because of some religious guilt and fear , plus loss of power over the followers. they erroneously feel the whole belief would crumble. But a serious look at the damages and the trauma from learned medical and physiological sources plus honest psychologists and psychiatrists with proper experience will show the depth of harm and the hollowness of any argument for any mutilation. it is understandable that people who have suffered this trauma be unable and unwilling to face their deep denial ,but alas biological reality is more real than soothing ideology. any human needs to be allowed to choose for himself the fate of his body and most intimate of organs. jews and moslems need to reconsider this and look into some roots of psychopathology due to this deeply damaging practice.

      "The anti mutilation movements" mainly consists of liberasts obsessed with fornication and believing as though circumcision steals some of their lust. If those liberasts were sincere in there concerns about mutilation, they would fight against the so called "female circumcision" – the real mutilation, committed routinely in islamic "culture".

    If noting else this proves the charge and why there is an affinity between the left and Islam. Both want to rule every aspect of your life. One of the reasons I get so upset when folks use the term Liberal to describe a most Totalitarian mindset.

  • Ben

    As the Jewish conservative atheist I agree with Mr. Prager . That law is the totalitarian act of violence,like the birds` shave in Peter the first i`s Russia. Jews must decide by themselves. The idea of the cosmetic reform of the religion looks ridiculous to me.
    Condemnation of Jewish( and Muslim) rithuals is the recollection of nazis theory and practice. The time of matzoth` fight will come!

      protecting against a mutilation has nothing to do with politics or nazis,. in fact if anything is coercive and punitive and destructive like nazism fascism and stalinism, it is the act of mutilation itself. forced un consenting helpless wordless newborn or child with permanent damage and psychological trauma. think of it .use your head not your fanaticism. no one wants toput any political spin on this . think honest debate and rational approach. it is the mutilation trauma itself that makes rabbis and devout jews and moslems unable to transcend their ironclad denial. same so mutilated or brainwashed american doctors

    Hmmmm… it is illegal to have a circumcision but an government funded abortion should be law? Crazy…..

  • Mary

    I would like to break it gently to my Jewish friends that there are far more Chrisians to be affected by this inane rule of no circumcision than Jews. How many Jews can there be in S.F.? Most of the folks whose freedom is being curtailed will be Christians. Shouldn't we remember that we are in this together?

    So it's okay for a parent to permanently and irreversibly alter the anatomy of their child if they have cultural/religious justification?

    I assume then everyone here supporting this article would fight just as hard to defend the right of parents to circumcise their daughters, or bind their feet.

    It's not an issue of religion. It's an issue of consent. Wait until the child is old enough to consent to the brit, and there is no problem.

    Oh, I have had enough of this. Just because I'm against taking babies regardless of race, religion and gender and cutting their genitals does not mean I hate Jews.
    Just the opposite really. It is not people's right to do this to a child. I don't care about tradition or any of that. You don't have the right to hurt a baby like this and alter his body for life without his consent.
    It has nothing to do with left or right. It's more about protecting the rights of that child to make decisions about his body without religion or mislead doctors interfering. (Also, I might add that those HIV studies are a bit dubious.)
