Recommended by Ricochet Members Created with Sketch. Save the Jews, the Christians – Civilization?

 

I caught the tail end of two Wall Street Journal journalists talking about the recent attacks on Jews in New York, and since WSJ is behind a paywall, I cannot find the segment. But what I heard burned into my memory. One said that this is a “mirror of what is going on in European cities, and has been for some time.” They stated the Jews are the canary in the coal mine, a cliche that has been echoed over and over to deaf ears. This has religious implications, but they said the “resurgence of antisemitism is a symptom that society as a whole is breaking down,” and concluded with “when that happens on a large scale, people choose camps, and a peaceful, cohesive society erodes and falls apart and all you are left with are warring camps.”

Is that what we are witnessing, in New York and elsewhere, when moral boundaries are removed? I’m not just speaking of the decline in church attendance, in Jews becoming more secular, but in the overall protections and safety nets that we once relied on. When we had boundaries, we relied on law enforcement, respect for property, differences of opinion, lifestyles, and it went both ways, instead of hurling hate speech and condemning one idea over another. We respected boundaries, which also included protecting children from overly sexual content. Law enforcement is now spat upon, doused with water, and shouted at with vulgarity. Wearing a MAGA hat in public can get you tossed out of a restaurant or pummeled, because of political differences. We now have something called gender fluidity.

Recommended by Ricochet Members Created with Sketch. Quote of the Day: Motive Mystery

 

“We may never know his motive.” “Authorities remain uncertain as to the killer’s motive.” Et cetera.

How many times do we read this, and see a very clear, very obvious motive? Seriously, if someone kills a person (particularly soldier or religious leader) while screaming Allah Akbar, you can safely say the scumbag is an Islamic Supremacist getting his jihad on. If someone is a member of an antisemitic group and kills a bunch of Jews after going to a place known to have Jews, they probably are a member of the Hitler fan club.

I expect we will hear more from the ethnic supremacy people sooner rather than later, so I would like to get the best arguments to tear apart antisemitism & holocaust denial. I may not want to cancel them, but I have no support for their insanity. My preferences are for right wing critiques. I wonder […]

Recommended by Ricochet Members Created with Sketch. The “Say Yes to Love” Garden Ornaments

 

After two synagogue shootings, a local Episcopalian priest joined forces with the Rabbi and other left-to-moderate clergy to encourage solidarity in spite of differences in beliefs. Soon campaign size white signs appeared upon the lawns of many in our little mountain community that say “Say No To Hate. Say Yes To Love. Love God. Love Your Neighbor.” After much thought and a couple of revisions, here are my thoughts that will likely be a letter to the editor:

The recent proliferation of the “Say Yes to Love Say No to Hate” signs are controversial because we are at a cultural moment where the various factions of our society no longer agree on what love and hate, or good and evil, consists of. A conspiratorial reading of the signs may be that love means “accept all narratives of LGBT advocacy groups without question” while hate means “voting for Donald Trump” or “robbing a woman of the same autonomy men have by advocating for the unborn.”

Prime Minister’s Questions this past week foreshadowed the American government’s future. Such a future had been seen as years, or decades, away, but events of this past week suggest the United States has entered a wormhole, as in a science fiction story. Indeed, it seems that one party has created an artificial wormhole, or hyperspace jump gate. Are we now being hurled towards convergence with British politics and society, with truth becoming stranger than fiction?

Prime Minister’s Questions, on 6 March 2019, featured questions about what Labour MPs called “knife crime.” While the Conservative PM lightly pushed back with talk of “drug gangs” as the problem, she effectively conceded the left’s position by citing an “offensive weapons” bill as a part of the government’s response. The accepted range of debate in Britain is now over how helpless the subjects of the realm should be rendered, firearms having long been restricted to near non-existence for ordinary people.

President Trump did, indeed, double down on hating back the Jew-hating mass-murderer. I’ve gone on C-SPAN and created the relevant clip from the Illinois MAGA Event: President Trump Calls for “Destruction” of Anti-Semites, Death Penalty for “crimes like these.”

The killer was depraved on account of he’s depraved, to borrow from West Side Story.He is, on available evidence, no John Hinkley, acting on the delusion that a spectacular act of violence would endear him to a movie star. He was not bowling alone, he was marinating in an ancient hate, channeling and reinforcing his evil through an online forum, instead of ranting in a bar, or passing out pamphlets.

Recommended by Ricochet Members Created with Sketch. Democratic presidents and anti-Semites

 

Some on the Left are attempting to blame Trump and Republicans for the killings last Saturday in Pittsburgh. But the last two Democratic presidents have appeared with notorious anti-Semites:

1. Obama and Rev. Wright: he claimed in 2009 that “Them Jews ain’t going to let him (Obama) talk to me.” Wright then said that he meant to use Zionists not Jews. This is a distinction without a difference. One might argue that this is after Obama broke with Wright in 2008. He claimed that he’d never heard Wright make the incendiary comments which came to light in 2008. But in 2004 he stated to a local Chicago reporter that he was in Wright’s church every Sunday. His claim of ignorance about Wright’s opinions strains credulity.

United States President Donald Trump thanks Rabbi Benjamin Sendrow after he invited Sendrow and a local pastor to say prayers in light of the morning's synagogue shooting in Pittsburgh, during his speech at the annual Future Farmers of America Convention and Expo at Banker's Life Fieldhouse in Indianapolis, Saturday, Oct. 27, 2018.The President has all the more reason, today, to double down and proclaim America a land of “Ballots not Bullets / Ballots not Bioweapons / Ballots not Bombs.”

The monster who murdered Jews in their place of worship, at a baby-naming ceremony, shares in the deep hatred of President Trump. The murderer hates this President because Trump celebrates keeping his word, moving our embassy to Jerusalem, and preaches at every event:

Having read this disturbing Gatestone Institute article about the increasingly dangerous situation for Jews in France, I would suggest that there is an opportunity here for European gentiles to put their money where their multicultural mouths are.

There is a story from the Second World War in which the German occupiers’ ordered Jews in Denmark to wear a yellow star. This was immediately followed by a royal order from King Christian that all Danish citizens should wear yellow stars. The story is apocryphal, but the solidarity and courage of the Danish gentiles with their Jewish countrymen were real and should be seen as exemplary.

A lot of ink has been spilled (digital and otherwise) about the unconscionable abstention of the Obama Administration in the UN Security Council’s condemnation of Israel this past week. What I am not seeing very much of is mention of the perfidy of some of Israel’s other erstwhile “allies” specifically the United Kingdom and New […]

Promoted from the Ricochet Member Feed by Editors Created with Sketch. Obama Kicks Israel on His Way Out the Door

 

Aleppo is crumbling, Libya is in ruins, Russia is threatening its neighbors, and China is militarizing the South China Sea. But the UN is taking action against Israel. And Obama let them:

The U.N. Security Council on Friday passed a resolution demanding Israel cease Jewish settlement activity on Palestinian territory in a unanimous vote that passed when the United States abstained rather than using its veto as it has reliably done in the past.

I’m Jewish, with all the baggage that entails (truncated family tree, etc.). But according to Cathy Young’s poorly reasoned and badly written hodgepodge, “Ann Coulter’s Anti-Semitism Runs Deeper Than You Know,” I, too, would qualify as anti-Semitic for questioning liberal Jews (that includes practically ALL so-called conservatives): They insist that while Palestinians have no right […]
