Does American Jewish Antipathy To Israel Matter? (CBD)

Two influential American Jews have called into question the support for Israel among American Jews and the need for Israel to continue to court that support. Daniel Pipes adds the additional argument that American Jews are solidly leftist.

Jewish support for Israel has weakened primarily because Jews are solidly on the liberal-left of the political spectrum (these days symbolized by Bernie Sanders), the side most critical of Israel.

From Israel's point of view, the fact that American Jews are losing their ardor for Israel is a distinct loss. But it is made up for by American conservative support for the Jewish state.

The contrast between American conservatives and post-religious American Jewry is stark. Support for Israel among conservatives is tremendous, and while American Jews will claim that it is self serving because of religious reasons, at least part of it is linked to Israel's position as a democracy amidst the savagery of the Middle East. And....some of it is respect for the military prowess of a country that started with almost literally nothing, and has created a small but immensely competent armed force that contends successfully with wide-ranging threats; from single person attacks to well-organized infiltrations to rocket and missile attacks to the everyday possibility of large-scale invasion by regular armies.

Mathematically, is it better to have the near-unanimous support of Jews, who make up 1.8% of the U.S. population, or the very substantial support of the 38% who are conservative? To ask that question is to answer it. That said, this change does have disadvantages for Israel: For one, conservatives tend to know less about Israel. For another, Israel has become a partisan issue.

And I would argue that Israel should simply introduce conservative America to Israel! How many would like to walk on the Via Dolorosa or pray in the Church of The Holy Sepulchre, and then head into Tel Aviv for its world-class nightlife?

As for Israel being a partisan issue? of course it is. The fight against Islam is partisan, and Israel is at the tip of the spear. Those who would appease Salafist Islam will hate Israel...those who reject it will support Israel.

30 I'll admit to supporting Israel first because God said so, but I also support them because they're a real democracy in the middle of a hellhole and they're the second Silicon Valley nobody knows about.

Intel's Core series of processors has been alternating generations between US and Israeli-designed chips after the US-designed Pentium 4 became a debacle and Intel Israel saved the company, and a lot of modern operating system tech comes from Israel as well. The next time you see someone ranting about the Jooooos, they're probably doing it with Israeli technology.

59 It's important to understand that "American Jews" here is a bit of a simplification: the reality is that for non-Orthodox Jews, liberalism IS their religion.

The Pew poll from a few years ago quantified what had been rumored: Orthodox Judaism is not only the only "denomination" that is healthy, but that the more Orthodox a Jew is, the more socially and politically conservative they are.

"Orthodox Jews identify with or lean toward the Republican Party over the Democratic Party by a 57% to 36% margin. And 54% of Orthodox Jews, including 64% of Ultra-Orthodox Jews, consider themselves politically conservative. On these measures (partisanship and ideology), the only other U.S. religious groups that are as conservative and Republican as Orthodox Jews are white evangelical Protestants and Mormons."*

62 I do think absolutely that many conservatives hope support of Israel helps them with the Jewish vote, but it doesn't really seem to matter.

About the only group Democrats own more than the Jewish vote is the black vote. Nearly 8 in 10 Jews voted for Obama,

I look at Israel like I would look at Germany or another European country. I'm not really interested in throwing billions at them to shore up their defenses, but that doesn't mean I "hate" them or on the side of their crazy neighbors.

Perhaps for just over a hundred years - not coincidentally the same timeframe as the beginning of the ascendancy of Fabian Socialism and its now near-capturing of the republic - American Jews have struggled with their identities as religious Jews, secular Americans believing in the American ideal and their historic role as victims of persecution. They were in toto Lenin's useful idiots; they believed in socialism as a way to fight the tyranny of the Tsars and as a way to ensure a sense of charity within the community. We now know that that myth has been exploded, but that was the reason and the ideal behind it. And if we are to be honest, Jews in America were heavily discriminated against almost into the early 1950s.

That all said, American Jewry up until the October War of 1973 has ceased to be. Their first and only allegiance is to hardcore leftist socialism. It sees America as evil and tragically it - just like Islam - sees Israel as the "little Satan": illegitimate, evil and a usurper/enslaver/hijacker of land that is not and never was theirs.

That is the hard and bitter truth. If they abandon Israel, then so be it. It and we who support Israel are better off without them.

Also, I think this is a generational shift, like a lot of the issues dividing America. I know a lot of older Americans that always supported Israel, and still do, and are Democrats. It depends how deep the older generation feeds into the news.

The young, well, they need to be saved from MSM, Entertainment and public schools. The brainwashing includes anti-Jewish sentiment.

Ummmm wut?

This is probably my background bias coming out but pretty much all of the people I know in meat space know a whooooollllleeeee lot about Israel. A solid 40-50% have already gone to Israel and the rest are planning or hoping to go some day.

Of course, I was raised an Evangelical Christian and, frankly, that's pretty much the most Zionistic group I've ever met.

104 89 Mark Levin the other night called Bernie Sanders a "self-loathing Jew"

Posted by: Jen the original at April 20, 2016 04:30 PM (1rAS0)


I think the term is only partially correct. Psychologically, they loathe themselves, that is, their heritage. I very strongly doubt that Bernie Sanders observes Passover or the High Holy Days let alone any other holiday. He probably has all but renounced his Judaism but it wouldn't perhaps play well on the national stage. Or, judging from the tone of the comments, would it?

Lest we forget the 2012 Democrat convention when Israel was loudly booed during some sort of pro-forma platform vote.

111 "From Israel's point of view, the fact that American Jews are losing their ardor for Israel is a distinct loss. But it is made up for by American conservative support for the Jewish state."
-----------------------
Stupid.

It is true that for a while conservative support of Israel can compensate for the increasing anti-Zionism of the Left.
But that "while" is ending.

It will not be long until conservative support of ANYTHING is useless, as we have less and less political power. In fact, as conservatism itself becomes more marginalized and socially unacceptable, conservative support alone will make a policy unpopular.

In my crystal ball I see a city banning products from Israel. I see a state reacting to that by passing a law saying people can buy whatever they please and no city can make trade laws like that. I see PayPal and Bruce Springsteen boycotting the "anti-Palestinian bigotry law."

American Jews who give a damn about Israel will have to change the Left. How? I don't know.

It's bizarre that the rest of the world know quite well that this guy is a lame duck, and while they'll accept no-strings giveaways from him of stuff they want, they won't give him any compliance nor courtesy in return. They're all just waiting to see who the next President is, before getting down to brass tacks.

Meanwhile, the Republican establishment on Capitol Hill, far from treating Obama like the lame duck that he is and that the rest of the world recognize him as being, are instead submissively bowing and scraping to him as though he's going to be in the White House for years yet to come.

On the historical note, the "Jewish question" that Adolf proposed to solve had a long history in Europe, viz., was a Jew living in France / Germany / wherever actually a Frenchman or a German, or just a resident of that country, without any particular ties to it? Marx was among the long list of European intellectuals who addressed himself to that issue.

It's one reason German Jewish chemists (e.g., Haber and Willstaetter) threw themselves into developing chemical weapons in WWI: to prove their German bona fides.

164 Afterthought: I should point out that of course the perspective of Europeans is quite different from Americans, who are all immigrants. It's quite striking on living in Europe to realize that the people there have been living there for millennia. They never ask each other where they're from, except in the sense of what part of the country. (Obvious recent immigrants - from e.g., the Third World - are of course an exception.)

Well, Arabs are just as Semitic as Jews (at least originally), so you probably mean anti-Jewish.

The Bible doesn't say it explicitly, but from the "taking care of the poor" on an individual basis it's a hop, skip, and a jump to doing so on a governmental basis. It's easy to cite the Bible in support of the government's doing that.


Put conversely, those subscribing to the Biblical injunctions would be hard put to deny efforts for the government to do the same thing that the Bible exhorts individuals to do.

As I wrote upthread, like everything of the left, the Jews who embraced socialism did so out of idealism. First and foremost as a way to empower themselves from Tsarist persecution and secondly in a misguided sense of being charitable to one's neighbors.

It's the dead enders who generation after generation refused to believe that their ideology not only didn't work but was lethal to actual real human progress. There is no reason a David Axelrod or a Max Blumenthal should have the mindset that they do.

Actually that is not true. he has been PM off and on for a long time. And he has fucked and or backed down on many issues. I think he is a terrible PM and the ONLY reason he kept getting re-elected is due to the total incompetence of the Left in Israel and Ariel Sharon's death.

Israel's destruction would entail a huge loss of face for America, and encourage other American allies to distance themselves from us.

According to Paul Johnson's History of the Jews, Russian anti-Semitism arose in no small measure because Jews, being literate, were often chosen to be the overseers on the aristocrats' lands, and thus in essence the tax collectors and foremen over the Russian peasantry. Needless to say, that position did not win them any friends.


Later, Czars and aristos realized that when things got bad, they could direct the peasantry's anger away from themselves and toward the Jews, whom they saw every day, as opposed to the absent Czar and aristos.


Still, the fervor for socialism arising as a reaction to Czarist persecution doesn't explain why it survived immigration to the US. Damned few Czars here. (At least then.) And yes, Jews faced discrimination, but realistically, almost every immigrant group did also. The Irish, Italians, and Chinese leap to mind in this connection.

The second part of my sentence was not fleshed out. Socialism as an instrument of charity which totally misinterpreted and mangled the true meaning of "tzdukah," or charity.

serf already had a strong socialist streak. People who live in stark
conditions often share a lot more than people with means, as it is
essential to survival. That is one of the reasons the Russian revolution
was a victory for the socialists - the population figured that anything
was at least as good as the current lousy life.

That's a good point. Russian peasants were accustomed to a socialist way of life in the allocation of lands in the village, etc.

Lenin Co. were initially successful because they promised "bread and peace." After the Treaty of Brest-Litovsk, however, the bread failed to materialize, and the Bolsheviks received only 25% of the vote (ca. 1919-1920, IIRC). So Lenin shitcanned subsequent elections.

Yeah, Nevergiveup has never been a fan of Netanyahu, and I gave him a ration of shit for it, but everything he has said about Bibi is true, and I have gradually, with much struggle, come over to NGU's side...at least mostly.
Posted by: CharlieBrown'sDildo at April 20, 2016 05:11 PM (Zu3d9)


So, Bibi is acting incompetently like every other Western leader?

I swear that someone in the old USSR developed a stupid drug, and fed it to everyone in academia, the media, and politics. Or maybe it is just leftism, socialism, and social justice are reaching their final endpoint.

That's one aspect for sure. The other and I think bigger aspect is the Judeo-Christian ethic common to both nations and the biggest enemy of Leftists.

BINGO.

The Hebrew Bible does not permit you to say there is no Truth.
It does not permit you to say that there is no objective reality and that things are only what you feeeeel they are.
It does not permit you to say that there is no Good, that "good" is only what helps the Party and "bad" is only what hurts the Party.
It does not permit you to say that man lives by bread alone.
It does not permit you to say that man is qualitatively no different from a raccoon or a cockroach.

I could go on and on.

245 Well I'm no fan of Israel or Islam. So there goes your theory.

Posted by: bjk at April 20, 2016 05:34 PM (x2rNW)

246 I will probably be called an anti-semite for saying this...but here goes.

Some Jews believe that they were cast out of the promised land for all time, for a reason (their security). That it is right and proper that they not have a homeland and that their security is rooted in not having that homeland. Basically they believe that living in a highly diverse nation (like the US) guarantees their security, because they don't stick out. This is probably the majority of American Jews and explains why they don't support Israel. This is the Left side of the political spectrum of Jewry. They are also open borders types.

Then you have the Zionists. They believe in a homeland for Jews and that Jewish security is rooted in them banding together against their enemies. They mostly live in Israel...but there are a lot outside Israel. This is the Right side of Jewry.

Then you have neocons. While the majority of neocons are Jewish, there are many Gentile neocons (Romney, Rubio, Bushes, Cruz...maybe Trump etc). Neocons believe in using the power of the US to protect Israel. Neocons are descended directly from Leon Trotsky. Neocons are also open borders types. Neocons are basically Leftist, except when it comes to Israel. Neocons are the problem in US politics.

Neocons dominate "conservative" politics in the US. That's why we keep electing "conservatives" and are surprised when they turn-out to be open borders types.

This why you have open borders types on both the Left and Right in US politics.

The above is highly oversimplified...

249 "In states such as Florida and New York, Jewish voters are a large enough percentage of voters to play a crucial role in election outcomes. In presidential elections, Democratic candidates depend on Jewish supporters to supply as much as 60 percent of the money raised from private sources. Any significant reduction in the financial support will weaken Democratic candidates and the Democratic Party organizations."

The jury is still out on whether you are an anti-Semite, but I am 100% sure that you are stupid and misinformed about a great many things.

Some Jews believe that they were cast out of the promised land for all time, for a reason (their security).

Really? How many? That you cite this tells me where you get some of your info.

Neocons are descended directly from Leon Trotsky.

Really showing off that amazing intellect! This one is even stupider than the sentence above it in your blather.

Eh....you're a troll, so I don't really care.

252 I wish I had not missed this thread. From an early age, love for the Jewish people and support for the Nation of Israel was taught to me, instilled in me, nourishing my soul. Come what may, I will never, not ever, lose my love for God's chosen people, and the many blessings that have come to me and my household because of them. God bless Israel. God bless the Jews. May those who are wandering come home.

256 Candidly Speaking: Obama, Netanyahu and American Jews:
...IN THIS CONTEXT, the support of American Jewry is enormously important. Obama would presumably seek to avoid alienating his Jewish constituency, 80 percent of whom voted for him and also contributed more than 50% of Democrat campaign funding...

257 The problem for Israel is that a substantial portion of its support on the right comes from philosemitic evangelicals, and this support can change much more rapidly to antipathy. It is important to remember that many evangelical supporters of Israel today have antisemitic grandparents or great grandparents and outside of the deep south I have met a lot of young Evangelicals who are far more isolationist than zionist. If Israel becomes dependent on Evangelical support in a world that is becoming ever more antisemitic, the Benedict option stuff I hear from many of my most genuinely devout evangelical friends is going to be a mortal threat.

I am from a leftist family background and a generation or two ago Zionism was a leftist cause. My mother's generation identified with Israel very strongly and is still shocked at the hatred from the left, especially with the death of the Arab secular left. She is in her 70s though.

Newsflash for you dipshit. The Neturei Karta (they are some Jews) oppose Israel for exactly that reason...among others.

WRT Neocons and Trotsky; look in the NR archives. Around 2003, the King of the Neocons (Jonah Goldberg) wrote a two-part, 10k word, screed outlining the history of neocons.

Talk about a troll.
