‘Jewbags’ and the Democrats’ Anti-Israel Liaison

Daniel Greenfield, a Shillman Journalism Fellow at the Freedom Center, is a New York writer focusing on radical Islam. He is completing a book on the international challenges America faces in the 21st century.

There’s a thin line between anti-Semitism and anti-Zionism. That’s true of Muslims and the left, but it’s also true specifically of the Jewish left, whose hatred for Israel manifests itself in a general contempt for Jewish religion, culture and tradition.

Take the “Jewbags” case of Danielle Gilbert, a staffer for Democratic National Committee chairwoman Debbie Wasserman-Schultz who had been appointed the DNC’s Jewish outreach liaison. In a social media mishap, Gilbert posed along with her friends in a photo that she captioned “JEWBAGS” and that a friend of hers captioned as “Jew cash money team.” This is the sort of incident that the hip crowd that thinks “Heeb” is a great name for a magazine and “Jewcan Sam” is hilarious will laugh off. But it’s hardly the most offensive thing about Gilbert from a Jewish perspective. It’s just a symptom of the problem.

Debbie Wasserman-Schultz has long been associated with J-Street, the anti-Israel group which has repeatedly worked to undermine Israel’s fight against terrorism. When a delegation from J-Street arrived at Schultz’s office last year, they were received by Danielle Gilbert who posed with them for a photo. That wasn’t the limit of Gilbert’s involvement with J-Street.

Danielle Gilbert’s twitter feed suggests that she attended the J-Street conference and she retweeted a call from the anti-Israel group to freeze “settlements.” Gilbert’s own anti-Israel background isn’t casual. She attended the London School of Economics and Political Science and while there was part of the Association for the Study of Ethnicity and Nationalism.

Gilbert had volunteered at Givat Haviva, a leftist group dedicated to pro-terrorist activism. Givat Haviva had a presence at the J-Street conference and has its roots in Kibbutz Artzi, which was far enough to the left that it identified closely with the Soviet Union and its leader eulogized Soviet mass murdering dictator, Joseph Stalin. The roots of Givat Haviva lie with Artzi’s Arab Department whose goal was a one-state solution.

Ilan Pappe founded and ran the Academic Institute for Peace in Givat Haviva. Pappe is a former member of Hadash, the Arab-Israeli Communist party, who supports the destruction of Israel via a One State Solution. An article on the Givat Haviva website features a photo of Danielle Gilbert with one of her friends, who writes about his own support for the One State Solution.

Through Givat Haviva, Gilbert conducted interviews with the residents of the Muslim Bartaa village which straddles the Green Line and has become a cause celebre for the anti-Israel left. Since then she has been a Jeremiah Fellow at Jews United for Justice, another left-wing group, which also participated in the J-Street conference, and whose board members intersect with a number of anti-Israel groups.

In 2008, Gilbert wrote, “We cannot see Mumbai’s events as anything less than the gruesome epitome of systematic terror. However, such a tragedy rightly makes us question our unequal treatment of minority cultures within larger communities,” shifting easily to calling the brutal murder of the Holtzberg family and countless Indians by Muslims a “tragedy” that serves to call attention to Muslim suffering.

For Jews there is far more to be offended by in that than in Gilbert’s use of a Jewish slur. There is also far more to be offended by in the fact that the DNC chose to elevate a woman aligned with J-Street and that she then elevated someone like Danielle Gilbert to conduct outreach to the people they no doubt fondly think of as the “Jewbags.”

    "Hopefully " any not-so-lazy readers will investigate this "story " and from it glean the truth .Another of the "NEW BREITBART SLANDER BLOG ……and here's a contribution remark made by FPM'S own Ben Shapiro :

    I am definitely a Jewbag. One big Bag O' Jew. Which is better than Debbie Wasserman Schultz, who is a Bag O' Scum. breitbart.com/Big-Government…

    LOL…Breitbart's not dead , he managed to pass on his "character " to his little hatefilled minions at Big Gov'mint . No surptrise there eh ? As I said before ….typical TEABAGGER behavior .Another "fake outrage " event constructed by the Breibart hatemongers . What a pathetric bunch , yet their readership sucks it up . It's just too bad stupidity isn't a painfull thing .

    • Christian West

      It's just too bad stupidity isn't a painfull thing .

      Right!
      Despicable Goebbels-wannabe like yourself would lose your congenitally stunted brain due to the overuse of pain killers.

    • reader

      Well, it does hurt, doesn't it, Jewbag? Can't even manage bravado without quite apparent bitterness. The comrades in arms don't like you and they never will. It's already happened to the Russian Jews sold on the false religion, and it's happening right here with the amused ones.

    • HoR_Emperor

      Oh look, another anti-Semitic troll comes out of the woodwork. These stories are great for luring such creatures into the light of day.

      HEY AMUSED :

      Since when is thruth slander ???
      Or are you going to say that what GREENFIELD states are lies ???
      If so, you'll have one hell of a time disproving it, I guarantee……
      Unfotunately for me, that despicable, shameless GESTAPOWITZ-in-skirts, with hair looking like
      she stuck her finger in an electric wall outlet as shown in cartoons, happens to be the Rep. of my

      • Amused

        TRUTH!! Are you serious ? I see you wish to remain in the little ignorant universe of breibart-ian minions and sycophants a.k.a . teabaggers . Look up the whole story dunce , see where it originated , connect the dots in how this SLANDER was constructed . You're too BLOODY LAZY and BIASED to get up of your lazy asss and do even superficial fact checking . You condemn yourself to ignorance . You're a schmuck .

        • stern

          Wow, what an amazingly erudite post, full of careful argument and closely constructed reasoning.

          Cheez! Once again, a leftist windbag finds himself unable to reply to any arguments, so resorts to insults and meaningless bafflegab.

          To quote this same poster, in perhaps the truest and most revealing thing it has written: "It's just too bad stupidity isn't a painfull thing." (Complete with spelling error demonstrating said stupidity. Gotta love it!)

        • HoR_Emperor

          Your obsession with Breitbart suggests you were one of the anti-Semitic scumbags who lurked there until they changed their comments system and rooted you all out.

    • HoR_Emperor

      A persistent troll too. Again characteristic of the hateful breed.

  • Werner

    Jewish anti-semitism ?, What's going on here ?, things have certainly changed. I am a German born, Australian citizen and fully support Israel, even making an effort to purchase Israeli products. My father was in the KREIGSMARINE in WW2….. We support Israel and the Jewish community.

    • Lady_Dr

      Thank you for your support of Israel and the Jewish community. But yes, Jewish anti-semitism does exist. This article names some of the key players and issues – full details would fill a book.

  • Herbster

    Don't forget that the repulsive Debbie W.S. religion is NOT Judaism, it is liberalism. The woman is a disgrace, not only to Judaism, but also to the Congress itself. How far we have fallen……just look at the Founding Fathers and compare them to today's government. Washington, Jerrferon, Hamilton. Madison, Adams X2,, etc. Today, Debbie W.S., obama, Biden, Pelosi, Maxine Waters, Boxer, etc. I rest my case. Oops. I forgot the present day "Jefferson," Mr. (Cold cash) himself.

    In the 80's, Communist Party USA fronts sent their Marxists to raise aid in churches saying it was "to help the people" in El Salvador but it actually went to the FMLN rebels in the "Zonas de Controlidad." They also gave funds "to help the people" in Nicaragua and its Construction Brigades filled with naive college students but when Ortega lost the election, the Brigades and Americans left which means they were actually there to HELP AN IDEOLOGY. This CPUSA AND SOVIET KGB PLAN was raising funds in the Home of the Son of God to aid an ideology that says "THERE IS NO GOD!"

    NOW "JEWBAGS" IS DOING THE EXACT SAME THING as it raises funds and garners support for a Party that has been taken over by JEWHATERS AND ISRAELOPHOBIA and who join forces with those who support terrorists actions against Israel, are silent on Syria, scream "No War on Iran," aid Hamas flotillas, and the takeover of countries like Egypt by the most radical of them all: The Muslim Brotherhood.

    "JEWBAGS" OR "FAKEJEWS?" IT IS THE DUTY OF ALL JEWS WHO KNOW OF THIS FRAUD TO EXPOSE THEM TO YOUR FELLOW JEWS. BEWARE OF FAKEJEWS WHO INFILTRATE YOUR SYNAGOGUE WITH THE SOCIAL JUSTICE MESSAGE LIKE THEY HAVE WITH MOST CHRISTIAN CHURCHES! FAKES ALL!!!

    • Lady_Dr

      Agreed!

  • WilliamJamesWard

    It would not be surprising to think Israel has a list of those Americans that are first traitors to freedom
    in America for totalitarian Communist and secondly determined to destroy Israel and for that matter
    destroy any form of freedom except the freedom to subvert governments. The world is at war with
    good and evil, survival is something that once questioned and is not a remote understanding and
    only theoretical calls for direct action and elimination of threats……………..William

    But Werner, THIS KIND OF "JEWS" ARE THE WORST THERE IS…! ! ! !

    These are the people who collaborated with the Nazis, such as per his own confession,GESTAPOWITZ

  • neils60

    It's now easier to understand why the president chose D.W.S to be the D.N.C. chair, as she evidently fits in very nicely with his philosophy and those who advise him on a daily basis. She gleefully gushed when the president stated that she had "a cute smile," and that, evidently, was the clincher for her. She's no different than that mouthpiece dud on MSNBC who stated that he gets "a thrill up his leg every time he hears his (the president's) voice."

  • Amused

    LOL….Breibart is alive and well as he managed to produce numnerous "hatchlings " to carry on his hatemongering and lies . So the dead demagogue's cloned minions and sycophants throw out the red-meat , and get their expected pavlovian response . What a pathetic lot .

        Neils60, this is the default position of the left. When you are out-argued, outmanoeuvred and out-classed, sling mud. No need to debate. Just scream, as loud as possible.

          When you are out-argued, outmanoeuvred and out-classed, sling mud. No need to debate. Just scream, as loud as possible.

          Ummm… Don't we see the exact same behaviour from people on the right as well? I've never been to this site before so I'm browsing around, reading the articles, reading the comments. Seems to me, that anytime someone puts forth an opinion that's outside the "mainstream opinion" of this site, they are immediately subjected to vicious attacks, without a whole lot of substance behind them.

          So I think what we have here, is a case of the pot calling the kettle black.

          • stern

            Yes, clearly you have not been here before. The folks who post here generally know what they're talking about, provide reasoned argument, back up their assertions with proof and generally tell it like it is.

            You're welcome to come back any time for further proof.

          • elmysterio

            Ummm… I would like to direct your attention to the rest of this thread. Not too much reasoned argument going on here, just a lot of name calling and ad hominem attacks.

            Anyways…

            Note my word "generally". Every now and then, you get a troll who gets the worst out of some people.

        yes she did , infact all have actually functioniung brains , which give them the astounding ability to think for themselves and base conclusions on actual facts , rather than numbskulls like you , who are merely meme parrots , who repeat what they here from other certified idiots . Be proud , and be thankful that ignorance is not a painfull thing .

          For a person who can't correctly spell <sic*>"infact", "functioniung", or "painfull", I'd say you have a lot of nerve calling ANYONE stupid, moron. Now… toddle off, little zombie. I have no desire to converse with the undead.

            I can spell correctly moron, if you look at your keyboard you just might realize that they are typos , so imbecile , don't get too far ahead of that slow mind of yours . But all in all your juvenile response is about all that can be expected …..too stupid or lazy to investigate the story ,aside from what is forced down your throat and you then repeat like the partisan parrot and sycophant that you are . If you care to render another ignorant response ….lol…feel free , you can be as stupid as you wanna be .

        • Kevin Stowell

          In your case, having no sensation from the neck up doesn't mean "ignorance is not a painfull thing."

  • Son-of-Chezwick

    Last year I had a conversation with my flower-child generation older brother in which he referred to the Tea Party as "a bunch of racists." I protested of course…and later that day, in a conversation with a different (also liberal) brother, I complained about the bigotry and unfairness of such characterizations. This brother said: "Well, a Republican is more likely to be a racist than a Democrat"….(or something to that effect).

    The second brother and I went on to argue other matters (the deficit/debt issue), but in hindsight, I wish I had brought up the pervasive antisemitism that exists among Democrats. It is an antisemitism that is typically more implicit than explicit, but it exists in spades. For example, this second brother had once wrote to me that ["If it weren't for Israel, the Muslims wouldn't be going berserk"].

    Such projection is typical of the Left: Muslim outrage and violence is seen as a force of nature without a moral dimension. If we infidels just toe the line, we can mitigate the problem…and those damn Israelis keep upsetting the apple cart. Other national liberation movements are celebrated by the Left; Zionism is somehow uniquely invalid and malevolent. This is bigotry of the first order and – unlike myself that day – it is our obligation as conservatives to expose it every chance we get.

    • Amused

You must have been the mental runt of your siblings . ….btw heard your B.S. anecdotal crock of shiiit before ….it still dont fly .You go girl , expose all those hippies and commies and marxists …..FPM might even give you an award badge to wear to your next teabagger meeting .

    Conservatives only pretend to care about Israel because they want help to murder Arabs and steal oil from the middle east.

    • stern

      Oh what sheer genius. We are so pleased you have uncovered the truth. Now, please take as long as you like away from this site as you ponder the next great world mystery: why do so many Arabs murder other Arabs?

      Really, please, don't rush back.

      • Alinsky USA HERO

        Why would you care if Arabs kill Arabs? Oh, that's right, you want the oil.

            The question is now up your a s s.

          • reader

            The answer is you don't. You just hate the Jews.

          • Alinsky USA HERO

            The second you don't need middle east oil, you will go back to being the Jew hater you've always been. Israel will be forgotten.

          • reader

            Apart from you, I never was a Jew hater, and US has more oil than Saudi Arabia, if only Obama did not stand on the way, you mindless troll. Unfortunately, Israel will never be forgotten for as long as there are Jew haters like you. Oil has nothing to do with it.

          • Rifleman

            If that were so, why wouldn't we just throw Israel under the bus in exchange for increased production by the arabs? After all, Jews vote over 70% democrat, and it would undermine putin, who relies on oil exports to fund his troublemaking. You're a regular mastermind, no doubt there's a good reason for it.

          SOME black people are stupid as so elegantly demonstrated by Cynthia McKinney, Whoopi Goldberg and the aforementioned Maxine Waters. Others have shown themselves to be exceptionally bright, like Thomas Sowell, G.W. Carver, and Marva Collins. So what was your point?

    Intelligence is no protection from brainwashing. The human brain learns something and then turns it into an automatic response…you don't have to learn to drive every time you get in the car for instance. Problem is, most people are not able to get beyond their initial programming, even from childhood, and therefore, are little more than zombies. D Wass Schultz' liberal mindset is stuck in a loop, a broken image of reality. Such people need to be retired, for everyone's sake, including their own.

    A generation ago many people in the west (including some Christians) wondered if, perhaps, followers of other faiths were worshiping the same God as Christians. Usually this question was prompted by looking at the many different religions around the world. Today, however, Christians are hearing this same question and often we’re hearing it directly from Muslim neighbors or work mates – who’ve recently emigrated to the west in large numbers and now comprise the largest non-Christian faith. It is not uncommon to hear a friendly Muslim remark to his Christian neighbor, “You are not so different from us … we worship the same God as you”. In this day and age dominated by religious pluralism and tolerance towards other cultures, Christians are increasingly perplexed by the question, Do Muslims worship the same God as Christians?

      Youssef, it is very important to get to the heart of the mater. The word of God is clear that the knowledge of the Person and work of Christ is the only saving knowledge. The fact is Islam denies both the truth of His person and the necessity of His work on the cross as the means of salvation. God has revealed that the only way a righteous and holy God can forgive and accept a fallen and unholy creature is through the substitutionary death of His only begotten Son. Mankind is only forgiven and accepted though the death and resurrection of One who took our debt of sin and transgression to Himself and died under the judgment of God, “Him who knew not sin (Christ) he (God ) made sin for us, that we might become God’s righteousness in him.” 2 Cor. 5:21. This should be put in the forefront of any “dialogue” with Muslims. The is no divine forgiveness in Islam.

    Dr. Manfred Gerstenfeld, INN
    The Psychology of Jews Who Embrace Their Enemies

    “The psychological dynamics of communities under attack explain why, both abroad and in Israel, the virtual siege placed upon the Jewish state will continue to lead segments of Jewish communities to support the besiegers and to urge Jewish self-reform as the path to winning relief. Yet the path they advocate is no less delusional than that of abused children who blame themselves for the abuse they experience. All too often such children doom themselves psychologically to lives of self-abnegation and misery. In the case of Jews indicting Israel for the hatred directed against it, the misery they cultivate goes far beyond themselves and ultimately, undermines Israel’s very survival.”

      Agree. And Dr. Kenneth Levin's "The Oslo Syndrome: Delusions of a People Under Siege" shows how this plays (and has played) out.

    Don't be perplexed Youssef ….the answer is NO , they do not , have not nor will they ever . True christians are in no way perplexed , only those who do not know the tenets of the faith they profess to practice .

    You took so much offense at the term "Jewbags," but it is about as disrespectful as sites like Jewlicious, and Jewcy. My question to you, Mr. Greenfield is: Do Jewbags Exist? If they do exist, then is it a big deal to refer to them frankly as Jewbags? Is "moneybags" term that should be censored? How about "carpetbagger?" How about "Jew?" You seem to be flying off the handle that a woman used an expression that is explicit, e.g. frank and effective to describe a specific political agent. So what's the big deal?

  • Whatsinaname

    Left leaning "Jews" left Judaism and Jewish identity a long time ago. They hate it. When it is convenient to secure a position as a Jew who will spout the kind of anti-Jewish garbage that they love and get PAID for it, they pull out the old Jewish identity thing and then promptly trash it until the next time it can buy them a paid gig somewhere. I am fully convinced that if Hitler came back as a leftie, they'd be singing his praises and working hard to get him elected. If they weren't so sick and evil and destructive, they'd be pathetic. But they are not self-hating. They don't hate themselves, just all the other Jews. Soros and his mother were prime examples of that.

    There is no nation without their own villains and Jews are not exemption. All expect them to be perfect nation but , alas, … By Judaism if Jew is righteous he/she is better than any in other folk but if some Jews is villain he/she is worse than any in other folk as well. Liberalism/progressism/communism/socialis is religion. It is so easier to be "democrat"/lib's…than to be conservative/republican. "Democrats"/marxsits/… can lie, steal, not paying taxes, etc but it is OK but IF the same does conservatieve… Media controlled by "Democrats'/lib's and propaganda works. Corapted Union (kind of mafia) of teachers is "Democrats" and on they side. All educational system including the most prestigious Universities controlled by teachers/professors who are Liberals (90% at least ). American Jews don't understand that their good life depends on Israel existence as well all non-muslims life and Western civilization overall. We all should pray for Israel and do everything to support it. Obama must be one term Pres (it is too much for our country). We people should be proactive not only make comments here but much more.

  • pyeatte

    It will not matter what the democrats say about the Jews because they know they have them in their pocket. It kind of destroys the myth of superior Jewish intelligence as they keep voting democratic.

  • Amused

    Nothing like a little subtle anti-semitism . Don't be alrmed pyeatte , it runs just under the surface of most of you Breitbar-tian repocons and teabaggers . It just waits for opportunities and targets to attack while facetiously attempting to uphold their "great love for Israel " . Your remark is typical .

    Son-of-Chezwick said: "Tea Party as "a bunch of racists."

    I wouldn't classify the tea party as racist necessarily. I'm sure there are racists within the party, as there are in pretty much every party. What I would call the tea party is duped to act against their own interests. Because really, anything the Koch brothers (Major Sponsors of the tea party) push for, is probably bad for the general population, to the benefit of the already ridiculously rich. Unless you're one of the ruling class, supporting the tea party and/or the republican party is a case of shooting yourself in the foot. As Buffett said: "This is class war. It was started by my class and we're winning".

    Now, on the flip side, people on the so-called "left" supporting the democratic party is equally foolish. Cuz really, neither of the duopoly parties actually represents the interests of the average joe. Both parties are bought and paid for. In fact, I would argue that the whole right/left paradigm is deeply flawed and is used by the ruling class to keep the people fighting among themselves, rather then realize that they have a common enemy.

    You only have to look at the continuation of policies between successive administrations. From Reagan to Bush Sr., From Clinton to Bush Jr. and now Obama, each administration built upon the foundations laid by the previous. The pattern is very clear. Reagan started the push for deregulation of many industries and really gutted the labour movement. Then along came Bush who continued with the deregulation. Then, thanks to Bill Clinton, major deregulation of the financial sector with the repealing of the glass-steagall act opened the door to the wild speculation that eventually caused the 2008 crash. Then we had Bush Jr. His administration put through the patriot act and really pushed the concept of the unitary executive, where the president has the ultimate power to sidestep the law. The Bush administration started the idea that with the War on Terror, the whole world was a battlefield and that people, including citizens, can be spied upon without a warrant, that people can be "disappeared" into overseas prisions on the say so of the executive. They also put forth the theory that on the president's say-so, torture is perfectly acceptable way to extract information.

    Then along comes the Obama administration… They not only continued the Bush policies of rendition, torture and warrantless spying, they claim the authority to arbitrarily assassinate citizens solely on the president's say so. The erosion of the rights and freedoms of citizens have been steadily progressing for a decade now, especially with the signing of the NDAA (done on new years eve no less to keep it "quiet") which makes it legal for the president to either kill or arrest anyone deemed to be an "enemy of the state".

    So. What happens next? Regardless who "wins" the next election, the authoritarian state will keep gathering power, until the point when finally the general public will take notice, but by then it'll be much too late. Dangerous times ahead folks!

    Elmysterio , it was "son-of-chezwicks " anecdotal flower-child brother , who allegedly said that Tea Party are a bunch of racists . Not that that estimation is wrong . but chezwick has used his imaginary "older brother " before in blaming the 60's generation for everything wrong in the world . You are concerned about What ? An authoritarian State ? That takes legislation towards such in a free Democratic country . We have elections and we have RECALLS . What you may want to consider is something else called NULLIFICATION and SOVEREIGN CITIZENS . So called Americans who consider themselves above the law , not subject to the rule of law, and have provided deadly examples of how far they will go to support their ideology ….LIKE THE OKLAHOMA BOMBING ., crashing a private plane into a building , shooting police and intimidating even assasinating those who openly criticize their ideology . Yup all the things these folks accuse the left of and rail against .

    William Buckley addressesd this , when he successfully split the Conservatives by publicly condemning Welch and the Birchers , calling them paranoid and crazy , efgfetive;y bringing the Conservative party back to a credible and respect worthy party in American Politics . People here forget or choose not to remember that it was conservative who railed about flouride in the drinking water as "a commie plot " , accused the Eisenhower Administration of being infested with commie spies , brought about the persecuion of fellow Americans visa=vis McCarthyism and those hearings , fought tooth and nail against MLK , and still today fight against any MLK holiday , street naming and recently the Monument in D.C. The same MLK whom they now co-opt for political purpose only .The tea party is the new expression of these same old conservatives and have a strong streak of racism .This is what has been creeping back into the conservative party and now controls their political narrative
