Liberal Jews have always missed the point ---- until now

By Dave Weinbaum

http://www.JewishWorldReview.com | If you tell a victim of rape, she’s responsible for provoking the attack by her innocent friendliness, the rapist will go on to think his action justified.
Lib Jews have always misunderstood the fact that you can’t make peace with people who will not recognize your right to exist and are, in fact, looking for any excuse to” wipe you off the map”-every Jewish man, woman and child.
A suck up in a vacuum is always full of hot air
I confess. I started this column upon receipt of this blurb via my website, www.daveweinbaum.com  :

Jeremy Ben-Ami
subject = You don't speak for me
comments = Read my book, A New Voice for Israel: Fighting for the Survival of the Jewish Nation.

Or, is that asking too much?

You obviously get all your thoughts from the media - you are a shameless whoire (his spelling) in that regard.

Try having some intellectual integrity instead of a walking bag of one-liners and knee-jerk policy positions based on what you've heard on the radio or television.”

When I Googled Ben-Ami, I learned he was the founder and director of J Street, a far left Jewish organization that panders to the enemies of Israel. According to multiple sources, J Street is financed in part by Media Matters, a George Soros funded site.
What seems to go unnoticed by Jeremy is the USA, upon being attacked on 9/11, conquered two sovereign countries, killing thousands, and is still at war ten years later making unauthorized forays into Pakistan and Libya, using unmanned drones to assassinate al-Qaeda and Taliban leaders.
Meanwhile, Israel is paraded as a war criminal, something Ben-Ami objects to, when they respond to the daily Hamas assaults on Israelis. Yet, there’s little objection when Obama continues to back Hamas positions seemingly in encouragement of the attacks.
Jeremy agrees to reward the terrorists by backing the President of the United States’ demand that Israel go back to the indefensible pre-1967 borders and give up half of Jerusalem, their 3.250 year-old capitol, to the terrorists. Instead, he should be urging the United States to set up its Embassy on the East side of Jerusalem, solidifying it as the undeniable, undivided Capitol of the Jewish State, now and forever.
I walked a mile in my wife’s stilettos. My feet are ruined, but I met some fabulous new friends.
The hypocrisy of Israel’s treatment by critics like Ben-Ami and by its best friend, America has been recognized by the Jewish dominated Ninth District of New York. Two days ago they elected a Catholic Republican, Bob Turner over a (supposedly) Orthodox Jewish Democrat as their Rep. This seat has been held by Dems for 88 years. Let me repeat: Eighty-Eight Years!
The result is a ripping repudiation of B. Hussein Obama by the staunchest of his former supporters: Jews. Further, Democrats outnumber Republicans three to one in the Ninth District. There were more crossovers there than at a Vegas transvestite convention.
What’s next: The Cubs winning a World Series?
While some wrestle with fantasy, I was pinned by reality.
Jeremy, in your November 21st, 2009 debate with Professor Alan Dershowitz, you and Alan seemed to have solved all of Israel’s problems. Determined to combine your strength, you had a Kumbaya moment at the end. You and the prof agreed to pontificate to Israelis about the importance of a two-state solution. You seemed to form a bond with Dershowitz worthy of Neville Chamberlain’s sacrifice of Czechoslovakia before WW2.
However, not once did I hear how you or Alan planned on stemming the flow of Islamist hatred towards Jews in general and Israel in particular as a result of such a “peace.”
As to Iran, I heard how sanctions would be a wasted motion to their nuke manufacturing, but a necessary step to showing Iran, we mean business! That was almost two years ago—time for Iran to finalize the process of producing delivery systems and a nuke that would put the whole Middle East in a bloodbath that would turn the entire Mediterranean red.
You and Alan’s arrogant blather has emboldened Jew-haters all over the world. President Obama couldn’t have been passed an easier lay-up than the slam-dunk on Israel you floated to the rim. I postulate because you show so little respect for Israeli survival, our President has caught the ball in mid-air and slammed it down Israeli throats.
A recent Jerusalem Post Poll indicates only 12% of Israeli Jews think Barack Obama is a friend to Israel, using policies you educated dunces advocate.
By the way, Jeremy, is your definition of a “whoire” anything like taking money from George Soros, a Jew who helped Nazis confiscate Jewish property during the Holocaust, while recently stating he enjoyed the activity?
Jeremy, I may not be the brightest bulb on the lamp, but I can smell intellectual dishonesty with the best of them.
Seems a lot of New York Jews have gotten a big whiff of that lately.
