In a latest interview with Israeli journalist Barack Ravid, The ex-president claimed: ‘There’s individuals on this nation which are Jewish, not love Israel. I’ll let you know that the evangelical Christians love Israel greater than the Jews.” This was simply one other of many anti-Semitic slurs which demonize American Jews and panders to the evangelicals, a voter bloc he has gaslighted into falsely seeing him as a super- Christian. Trump continued to disparage and over-generalize ” all” American Jews by saying, “Israel had absolute energy over Congress’ however ‘immediately I feel it’s the precise reverse and I feel (ex-President Barack) Obama and (President Joe) Biden did that”, and but within the election they nonetheless get lots of votes from the Jewish individuals,’ Trump continued. ‘Which tells you that the Jewish individuals – and I’ve mentioned this for a very long time – the Jewish individuals in the US both don’t like Israel or don’t care about Israel.” Anytime somebody speaks in a generalized method utilizing phrases like ” them” and “they” about minorities, there’s a degree of bigotry at play.
If Jewish individuals have a look at the details since Charlottesville, can they actually website public statements or insurance policies that struggle to get rid of the expansion and violent affect of white supremacist teams in America?
His anti-Semitic leanings got here out when he discovered daughter Ivanka was changing to Judaism. The Every day Mail reported immediately about Trump’s preliminary response to his daughter Ivanka changing to Judaism to marry Jared Kushner. They report:
“Trump, a Protestant however not very spiritual, reportedly informed Robert Kraft, proprietor of the New England Patriots, ‘Jared is half the dimensions of Tom Brady’s arm.Why couldn’t she have married Tom Brady? Have you ever seen how far he throws a soccer? Trump questioned why she needed to convert to marry him. This info appeared in a ebook titled, American Oligarchs: The Kushners, Trumps, and the Marriage of Cash and Energy.
Many Jews discover Trump’s public declarations of affection and delight for his Jewish daughter and grandkids just like the cliched anti- Semitic “a few of my greatest pals are Jewish.” What could be extra convincing of a real love of the Jewish individuals could be for Trump to publicly handle the Proud Boys, the KKK and different such teams by saying, ” I denounce your group and it’s violent, bigoted view of Jews, Blacks and the LGBTQ neighborhood. I reject your alignment with me personally, the Republican get together and denounce any actions or statements you make in opposition to these communities.”
We Jews know he won’t ever utter these phrases, so don’t be fooled by his feigning love for Israel to get the Jewish vote. Defending us from teams who need to imprison or kill us could be extra proof of unique funding in defending the lives of Jewish individuals.
