Mark Blattner, CEO of the Jewish Federation of Greater Portland (JFC-GP), appears to have swallowed today’s deadly multiculturalism pill, a hallucinogenic that causes its victims to believe that mixing two disparate cultures can bring about an egalitarian Utopian society. Despite the many books written about the decline of civilizations under Islam, there are still too many misguided people on the left who, whether wittingly or not, act to bring Israel to destruction. We are already seeing evidence that while differences in race and religions can work very well, the invasion of a theocratic culture, such as Islam, can cause the demise of the host culture. This explains why there are so many Islamic tyrannical regimes in the east and why Sweden may be taking her last breath in the west.
In a world that often views Israelis and Jews as pariahs, there is only one bona fide homeland for the Jewish people who, after thousands of years of suffering on foreign soil, were finally able to reclaim their ancient homeland in 1948. They re-built and transformed the neglected desert and malarial swampland into a modern, thriving, innovative state, yet there are still some American Jews who seem to resent their brethren’s freedoms and accomplishment. These voices from the Diaspora claim to be “a strong supporter of Israel,” but the words ring empty as the ADL (Anti-Defamation League), the AJC (American Jewish Congress) and JFCGP persist in denying Israel’s right to their own complete independence, self-rule, dignity, language, flag, holidays, Jewish customs and laws, and Jewish culture, unapologetically and unbeholden to others, on this one piece of land that 22,145 km compared to the Arab world’s 12,061,226 km, with Israel’s population of 8,585,000 (in 2016) to the Arab world’s 330,000,000 (in 2007). No other country is asked to hyphenate its identity and destiny.
These “strong supporters” have not defined their support; it is an empty statement. While they try to appear altruistic, they are speaking out against the Nation-State Law that protects Israel’s interests and her continued existence. Contrary to the rhetoric, the Law does not affect the individual civil, political or human rights of Israel’s minority groups. They retain their rights to vote, to employment, housing, and transportation. It does, however, clearly reserve the collective right of national self-determination in the state to the Jewish people, the fundamental principle of Zionism. Ronald Lauder and the AJC abuse Israel’s nationalism, but it is precisely that concept of nationalism plus borders that are helping some countries (Hungary, Poland, Latvia and The Czech Republic) survive the Islamic onslaught being experienced by their less wise neighbors.
Where were the ADL, AJC, and Jewish Federations when Israel fought for her survival against Islam’s multiple wars, Intifada attacks and constant barrage of rockets since before her declaration of statehood? They were mute then and they remain mute now, through the current fire jihad that has destroyed more than 82,000 acres of forestry and agriculture, livestock, homes, livelihoods, irreplaceable personal belongings, and impaired the pulmonary and emotional health of the residents. The groups are silent when Palestinians destroy precious Hebrew artifacts beneath the Temple Mount, and absurdly absent when President Trump acknowledged and formally declared Jerusalem the Eternal Capital of Israel. We hear no voices against the anti-Semitic textbooks in American schools and they do not support President Trump’s attempt to keep Americans safe from violent Islamic migrants who cross our own borders. There is no doubt that the ADL, AJC, and regrettably others are Progressives, globalists, who desire one large chaotic world with one ruler at the top for which the masses will have neither voice nor vote.
