The U.S. Jewish lobby has rushed to defend Israel following the United Nations’ Security Council (UNSC) motion condemning the illegal seizure of Palestinian land—highlighting the fact that they support the right of Jews to preserve their racial identity in their own ethnostate, but always strongly oppose any European demands for that same right.
This hypocrisy extends to both “right” and “left” wing Jewish lobbies.
A Palestinian protester outside an Israeli-government sponsored illegal Jewish settlement in the West Bank.
For example, the Anti-Defamation League (ADL)—which was set up to specifically combat what those Jews call “white supremacism”—was one of the first out of the stalls to come to Israel’s defense for stealing Palestinian land.
The ADL immediately issued a statement saying that it was “outraged over the U.S. failure to veto this biased and unconstructive UNSC resolution on Israel.”
ADL CEO Jonathan Greenblatt said that the “resolution will only encourage further Palestinian intransigence vis-à-vis direct negotiations with Israel in favor of unilateral, one-sided initiatives.”
This is, of course, nonsense—Israel has not “negotiated” anything with the Palestinians over the illegal settlements, and has pushed through a unilateral policy designed to enlarge Jewish presence in the occupied West Bank.
The Israeli government is even busy implementing a law which retroactively legalizes all these settlements. Currently there are over 600,000 illegal Jewish invaders living in the Palestinian territories, and if the existing rate of growth is maintained, Jews will eventually completely displace the Palestinians out of all their land.
This overt Jewish supremacism has not stopped the Jewish Federations across North America (JFNA) from issuing a statement saying it was “deeply disappointed” that the U.S. had not vetoed the U.N. motion.
The refusal to veto the motion had, the JFNA said, “undermined a core principle of American foreign policy that has been embraced by Democratic and Republican Administrations for decades.”
In a staggering new low for hypocrisy, the JFNA said that it was “tragic that the [Obama] Administration chose to mar its legacy of support for the Jewish State and set back the prospects for Israeli-Palestinian peace.”
The Orthodox Union also announced that it was “gravely disappointed” with Obama, as not vetoing the motion had “undermined his legacy” and was an “unprecedented and deeply disturbing break from the past.”
In addition, the leaders of the Conference of Presidents of Major American Jewish Organizations said that there was “no justification or explanation that validates the United States failure to veto the one-sided, offensive resolution adopted by the Security Council,” and that the “United States vote will be seen as a betrayal of the fundamentals of the special relationship” between Israel and America.
Morton Klein, president of the Zionist Organization of America, announced that “Obama has made it clear that he’s a Jew hating, anti-Semite,” and the American Jewish Committee’s CEO David Harris said that the “Administration’s decision, for the first time in eight years, not to block an anti-Israel measure at the UN Security Council is profoundly disturbing.”
Even the “left-wing” Jewish lobby organization “Americans for Peace Now” described the UNSC resolution as “pro-Israel in the deepest sense of the term, supporting Israel’s existence and security,” while reaffirming its long-standing opposition to the illegal settlements in the West Bank.
This was a position endorsed by the “left-wing” J Street lobby, which issued a statement saying that the UNSC resolution was “consistent with longstanding bipartisan American policy, which includes strong support for the two-state solution, and clear opposition to irresponsible and damaging actions, including Palestinian incitement and terror and Israeli settlement expansion and home demolitions.”
It is therefore clear that the entire Jewish lobby—both “left” and “right” wings—all support the right of Israel to exist, and only differ with each other on how best to preserve the Jewish ethnostate.
The “right-wing” Jews believe that Israel can be best secured by ultimately expelling all the Palestinians and seizing the West Bank—which they insist are the biblical lands of Judea and Samaria.
The “left-wing” Jewish lobby, on the other hand, argues that these expansionist policies are likely to generate opposition to Israel, and that for this reason they are best halted.
Both “left” and “right” wing Jewish lobbies are however united in their vehement opposition to the right of Europeans to have an ethnostate, and are always at the forefront of opposition to such political movements in Europe and America.
