Donald Trump’s election victory has brought the long-simmering fight between “right-wing” and “left-wing” Jews to the surface—but the real test of how this will affect the Jewish lobby’s power will be in the area of foreign policy.
Trump has the support of the “right-wing” Jews and the Israeli government—but is hated by the “left-wing” Jews who form the majority of Jews in America.
According to research carried out on the voting patterns of the recently completed U.S. Presidential elections, about 70 percent of Jews in America voted for Hillary Clinton, and only 30 percent for Trump.
This accurately represents the split between “right-wing” and “left-wing” Jews in America, who, as pointed out earlier, disagree only on how Israel should best be presented to the outside world.
Both “left-” and “right-wing” Jews do not diverge on support for Israel, or for the manipulation of American foreign policy in support of the Jews-only state in the Middle East, or on any other of the main support struts for the Jewish lobby in the U.S.: effective control of the mass media, the financial sector, Hollywood, and, with the notable exception of Trump, the financing of all important political campaigns.
While “left-” and “right-wing” Jews all support the racially-based state of Israel, both sides hypocritically demand that Europeans not be “racist.”
For example, in Israel, it is a criminal offence, punishable by a prison sentence, for a non-Jew to marry a Jew. Any European nation which outlawed marriage between Jews and non-Jews would be branded by both “left-” and “right-wing” Jews as “Nazi.”
In Israel, it is illegal for homosexuals to marry. Recently, a bill before the Israeli parliament calling for “equality” for homosexuals, lesbians, and “transgender” mental-illness sufferers, was rejected. Any European nation which adopts a similar position—such as Russia—is branded “bigoted” by the Jewish lobby.
In Israel. schools are racially segregated between Jews and non-Jews. Any European nation that practiced school racial segregation would be branded as “haters” by the Jewish lobby.
Israel has the most strictly racially defined citizenship laws in the world (even basing them on the Nazi Nuremberg Laws), uses DNA to check that potential immigrants are racially Jewish, and outlaws all non-Jewish immigration.
Yet at the same time, the Jewish lobby, both “left” and “right,” campaigns endlessly against any attempt by any European nation, party, or even individual politician, who might dare suggest that European nations should be kept racially homogenous—like Israel is.
It is important to note that there is, of course, nothing wrong with Israel’s racial laws per se. In fact, they are vital for any nation which seeks to preserve its identity and racial homogeneity, and if European nations are to be preserved, they will eventually have to adopt similar laws themselves.
This said, the core of the current Jewish spat over Donald Trump is not therefore whether “left-wing” or “right-wing” Jews disagree on the fundamentals—because they do not.
Rather, the spat is all about who is more hypocritical. Clearly, the “left-wing” Jews—the majority of Jews in America—are more hypocritical than the Trump-supporting “right-wing” Jews.
It is this hypocrisy which lies at the core of understanding the present Jewish lobby infighting over Trump.
While Trump is unquestionably one of the most pro-Israel presidents ever to be elected (perhaps he might have been surpassed by Hillary Clinton, but she lost), his opposition to illegal immigration in America has been the cause of the hypocritical left-wing Jewish lobby’s hatred and opposition to him.
This infighting has involved ridiculous allegations of “anti-Semitism” against Trump because he appointed Breitbart News long-time executive chairman Stephen Bannon as his chief strategist and senior advisor.
There is of course no evidence at all that Bannon is “anti-Semitic.” In fact, as revealed in a recent interview with the BBC’s Radio 4, Breitbart’s editor-at-large is none other than the Orthodox Jew, Joel B. Pollak. For the left-wing Jews to claim that Breitbart is “anti-Semitic” is laughable.
Even the Anti-Defamation League (ADL), which openly campaigned against Trump during the election, repeated this laughable allegation, condemning Bannon’s appointment on the grounds that he “grew Breitbart’s audience by turning it into a destination for white nationalists and racists, including anti-Semites.”
As the Jewish Daily Forward pointed out, however, Bannon’s supporters — which include the Zionist Organization of America, the Republican Jewish Coalition, and Rabbi Shmuley Boteach—dismissed the ADL’s criticism, vouching for the Breitbart chief’s “Zionist credentials and his treatment of individual Jews.”
Nonetheless, the “left-wing” Jewish lobby is convinced—or rather has convinced itself—that Trump’s election is anti-Semitic, even though it is nothing of the sort.
An article by Chemi Shalev, from Israel’s Haaretz newspaper, published in the Jewish Forward, sums up this paranoia, and the reason for the “left-wing” Jews’ delusion on the matter:
“American Jewish liberals are bound to feel alienated from their own government in way [sic] they’ve never felt before.
“Most of the values, goals and policy objectives of the Trump administration . . . are diametrically opposed to those of most American Jews.
“They support immigration, pluralism, multiculturalism, social reform, government intervention, separation of church and state, gay marriage, abortion rights and on and on.
“It is easy to see, in fact, why so many of Trump’s radical supporters would view the Jews as their mortal enemies.”
The fight between “left-” and “right-wing” Jews, as summarized by their hysteria over Trump, is therefore a clash built on a delusion: a fantasy that somehow Trump is a secret anti-Semite, or that he somehow “encourages anti-Semitism.”
Because both these allegations are patent nonsense, and are merely a reflection of internal Jewish hysteria, they will have little day-to-day effect on the real world, except that their ongoing hysteria will be broadcast to non-Jews through their controlled media for a while to come.
Where the real impact will be—and how far this will affect America, remains to be seen—is in the area of U.S. foreign policy.
It is well-known that Trump is personal friends with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, and this will no doubt ensure that all the usual pro-Israeli policies (such as the blatantly illegal “foreign aid” grant to the Jewish state) will continue.
However, Trump also campaigned on some foreign policy positions which are indeed hostile even to the “right-wing” Jewish lobby’s aims.
These previously announced policies include halting U.S. support to the Syrian “rebels,” supporting Syrian president Bashar al-Assad, and other foreign policy shifts which, if implemented, will be contrary to the Jewish neo-cons grand plans to ensure Israeli hegemony in the Middle East.
It remains to be seen if Trump keeps to these policy undertakings, or if they are quietly dropped.
The true test of the independence—or otherwise—of the Trump administration will, therefore, not be determined by the current hysterical, largely irrelevant and invented squabbling between “right-” and “left-wing” Jews, but rather on the issue of U.S. foreign policy in the Middle East.
