Trump and the Jews: A Simple Explanation

The publication and subsequent controlled media frenzy of the Jewish journalist Michael Wolff’s book Fire and Fury about the Trump presidency has highlighted the absurd nature of the conflict which dominates current American politics—all of which boils down to a fight between “left wing” and “right wing” Jews.

The Trump faction represents—and indeed is directly controlled by the “right wing” Jewish lobby, while his detractors are from the “left wing” Jewish lobby. Understanding the differences—as far as they are different—between these two groups is critical to understanding current events in Washington DC.

As detailed earlier, the major difference between the “right wing” and “left wing” Jews centers around on how Israel should best be presented to the outside world, and there no divergence at all on the fundamentals of Jewish Supremacism in Israel or America.

In Israeli terms, this correlates to the political division between Jews who support the “right wing” Likud party, and those who support the “left wing” Labor Party in that country.

The Labor Party was, from the foundation of Israel until 1977, that country’s dominant political party. Every Israeli Prime Minister up to that year was either a member of that party or of its immediate predecessor.

However, after 1977, the Israeli electorate swung to the “right,” and elected the first of many successive Likud-led coalition governments.

This “swing to the right” has been empowered by the ever-increasing numbers of fanatic Orthodox Jews in Israel, who have their own parties. These orthodox religious parties are now of such electoral significance that they are able to provide the Likud government with majorities in the Israeli parliament.

In this way, they can, and often do, implement policies regarded as “right wing” Zionism—such as support for the illegal settlement program by Jews in the occupied West Bank.

For its part, the Likud party is adamantly opposed to any sort of “agreement” with the Palestinians which might involve the creation of a Palestinian state, so their policies dovetail perfectly with those of the religious parties.

On the other hand, the Labor Party supports what it calls “the Israeli–Palestinian peace process,” started by its assassinated former leader Yitzhak Rabin—who was killed by a supporter of one of the religious parties in coalition with Likud.

In the latest Israeli election (March 2015), the Labor Party and its allies together polled 18.67 percent of vote, giving them 24 seats in the Knesset (19 of which were directly elected as Labor Party members).

Likud and its religious party allies (the “Jewish Home,” “United Torah Judaism,” “Kulanu,” and “Shas,”) together polled 49.36 percent of the vote, giving them 61 seats (30 of which were directly elected as Likud party members).

From this overview it can be seen that the real division among American Jewry is between those who support the Israeli Labor Party’s version of Zionism, and those who support the Likud party’s version.

There is no moral compunction about what is ethically “right or wrong” at work here. The only motivation is what is in international Jewry’s best interests: to adopt either a hardline “all-out-suppression-of-the-Palestinians-no-matter-what-the-world-says” policy, or to present the Zionist state in a more public relations savvy “friendly” light.

There is no intention on the part of “left” or “right” wing Jews to change any of the underlying issues which have created so much conflict: namely the Jewish lobby’s effective control of the political process in the US, and the fact that the state of Israel was founded on land violently and bloodily stolen from the Palestinians.

This split plays itself out in the political arena in America as follows: the “conservative” orthodox and ultra-orthodox Jews tend to support Trump-like politics (with their current most prominent White House representative being Trump’s son-in-law, Jared Kushner), and the reform and liberal Jews support Clinton-Democratic-type politics.

As the New York Jewish Week explained in September 2017, in an article titled “Orthodox Jews Emerging As Trump’s Truest Believers,” the election of Trump “gave fresh evidence of a widening chasm in American Jewry . . . the growing gap between Orthodox and liberal Jews.”

According to that report, an “American Jewish Committee poll found that while the overall Jewish community ranks among the most strident opponents of President Trump, Orthodox Jews remain his most loyal supporters among faith groups.”

The AJC poll could that 77 percent of American Jews “disapprove of the job the president is doing.”

This finding tallies almost perfectly with the number of orthodox Jews in the US, said to be anywhere between 20 and 27 percent of all Jews in America.

This ongoing spat between “right wing” and “left wing” Jews is the real cause of the circus show currently taking place around Trump.

It is an indication that both the “left” and the “right” wings of establishment politics are under the thrall of the same ethnic group—the Jewish lobby—and has nothing whatsoever to do with the interests of European Americans, whose interests are always ignored.
