“I want to talk about the political influence in this country that says it is okay to push for allegiance to a foreign country.” —Ilhan Omar’s anti-Semitic accusation that Jewish Americans’ love for Israel signifies “allegiance to a foreign country”
“It’s all about the Benjamins baby.” —Ilhan Omar’s anti-Semitic accusation, via Twitter, on February 10th, 2019, that AIPAC [the American Israel Public Affairs Committee] bribes Congressional members to vote in support of Israel, when the truth is that only person-to-person lobbying and sponsored educational experiences are allowed by AIPAC, while CAIR [Council on American-Islamic Relations], a jihadist organization, actually gave money to Omar’s political campaign
“Dr Duke & Eric Striker: By Defiance to Z.O.G. [Zionist Occupation Government] Ilhan Omar is NOW the most important Member of the US Congress!” —Tweet by ex-Ku Klux Klan Grand Wizard David Duke, a Jew-hater who tried to get elected first as a Democrat and then as a Republican, in an era when both parties were pro-Israel and philo-Semitic
Trump, the Most Philo-Semitic President Since Truman, Condemns Ilhan Omar’s Anti-Semitism
Donald Trump is the most philo-Semitic president the country has seen since Harry Truman helped to establish the modern State of Israel. According to Breitbart News, President Trump, in response to Ilhan Omar’s recent anti-Semitic remarks, said, “I think she should be ashamed of herself. I think it was a terrible statement, and I don’t think her apology was adequate.” When asked what Omar should have said instead, Trump replied, “She knows what to say.”
President Trump, whose daughter Ivanka is herself Orthodox Jewish, spent a significant segment of his State of the Union Address fighting anti-Semitism, honoring Holocaust survivors, and recognizing the victims, survivors, and first-responders at the Tree of Life Synagogue. Trump is the one president who ultimately kept his promise to move the American embassy to Jerusalem.
Trump became famous for his philo-Semitism back when he helped a little Orthodox Jewish boy, Andrew Ten, receive life-saving medical treatment by allowing Andrew’s family to transport the boy in Trump’s own private aircraft. And, as president, Trump gave a little Israeli girl named Emilee, who was fighting cancer, her wish to meet the US president. Trump has always been very loving, but the president would seem to have a special place in his heart for the Jews; indeed, his own grandchildren, whom he loves dearly, are Jewish.
Republicans Are Unified in Their Support of the Jews & Their Opposition to Anti-Semitism
It used to be true that both the Democrat and Republican parties were both unified in their support of the Jewish community. But, of late, this is no longer true of the Democrats, who have recently refused to condemn anti-Semitism by passing a proposed resolution to condemn the anti-Semitic slurs of Ilhan Omar; instead, they decided to pass a resolution against all bigotry and hatred, including “Islamophobia.” So, rather than being condemned for her anti-Semitism, Omar was made to feel supported in her religion-based anti-Semitic remarks, saying, “Today is historic on many fronts. It’s the first time we have ever voted on a resolution condemning anti-Muslim bigotry in our nation’s history [not true, there was a vote condemning anti-Muslim bigotry soon after 9-11 happened]. Anti-Muslim crimes have increased 99% from 2014-2016 and are still on the rise [but, even according to the Left-leaning Southern Poverty Law Center, Muslims are 6% of all hate crimes, while Jews represent 12% of the total]. We are tremendously proud to be part of a body that has put forth a condemnation of all forms of bigotry including anti-Semitism [yet Omar has not retracted her anti-Semitic comments or apologized for them], racism, and white supremacy. At a time when extremism is on the rise [it actually is not, except with regard to religious Jews, traditional Christians, and Trump-supporting Conservatives], we must explicitly denounce religious intolerance of all kinds and acknowledge the pain felt by all communities.”
Ilhan Omar’s Anti-Semitic Treatment of Elliott Abrams
100percentfedup.com reported the following about Ilhan Omar’s anti-Semitic treatment of Elliott Abrams: “It’s difficult to watch Rep. Ilhan Omar rudely question Elliott Abrams (who is Jewish) at a Foreign Relations Committee hearing, but it’s important to see just how inept this woman is at being on the Foreign Relations Committee. She badgers the witness, accuses him of condoning genocide [one of the worst things by far that one might accuse a Jew of doing] and even calls him repeatedly by the wrong name [perhaps indicating her need to avoid saying a Jewish name]. Elliott Abrams was invited as a witness but was treated rudely by Omar. He is the Special Envoy to Venezuela.” Omar’s treatment of Abrams, while it is horrible, cannot be too surprising, given the fact that she is a doctrinaire Muslim [not all Muslims profess to be as dogmatic as Omar and, therefore, cannot all be painted with the same brush of anti-Semitism] who, in an effort to live up to the teachings of Muhammad, ostensibly lives a life imbued with extreme Jew-hatred. As a dogmatic Muslim, even Omar’s prayers would condemn Jews—and not only Jews, but Christians as well!
Salat: Muslim Prayer
Salat is Muslim prayer and, according to Dr. Paul Revere (in Teach Your Children the Truth About Islam, pp. 18-19), doctrinaire Muslims—including Ilhan Omar—must pray five times daily for Kafirs to suffer (and five such occurrences are underlined and italicized below). [“Kafirs” are “deceivers,” the word used by Muslims to describe unbelievers.] The chauvinistic prayers of Muslims are recited as follows (according to translations provided by Dr. Bill Warner):
“First Prayer: O, Allah, we ask You for help and seek Your forgiveness. And we believe in You and have trust in You. And we praise You in the best way. And we thank You and are not ungrateful to You. And we forsake and turn away from the Kafirs.
O, Allah, we worship You only and pray to You and prostrate ourselves before You. And we run towards You and serve You. And we hope to receive Your mercy. And we fear Your punishment. Surely the Kafirs will receive Your punishment.
“Second Prayer: O, Allah, verily we seek Your help. We believe in You, we put our trust in You, and we praise You, and we are not ungrateful to You. Oh Allah, You alone do we worship, and to You we pray and prostrate. For Your sake, we strive. We hope for Your mercy and fear Your punishment, for Your punishment will surely reach the Kafirs.
O, Allah, punish the Kafirs of the People of the Book [proselytizing Christians] who are preventing others from following Your way.
“Third Prayer: In the name of Allah the Beneficent, the Merciful, all praise is due to Allah, the Lord of the World, the Beneficent, the Merciful, Master of the Day of Judgment. You do we serve, and You do we beseech for help. Keep us on the right path—the path of those upon whom You have bestowed favors. Not the path of those upon whom Your wrath is brought down [Jews], nor those who go astray [Christians].”
Islam, according to Dr. Paul Revere, is the only “religion” whose prayers emphatically curse all unbelievers. Revere points out that Islam promotes activities condemned by the moral standards of most world religions: assassination, honor-killings, pedophilia, slavery, sex-trafficking, wife-beating, and so forth. “So illegal are these traditional undertakings of Islam,” writes Revere, “that Islam should not be allowed classification as a religion in the United States, with all the First-Amendment protections thereto appertaining. Islam should be classified as a criminal enterprise and its scofflaw adherents brought up on racketeering charges and the like, whenever possible, in order to safeguard Americans from their violent ways.”
According to Dr. Paul Revere, there are, of course, those who will commit taqiyya—sacred deception—in order to protect Islam. Writes Revere: “Muslim apologists will often contend that there is no proof that the phrasing ‘those upon whom Your wrath is brought down’ refers to Jews nor that ‘those who go astray’ refers to Christians. Yet, if we go to Sahih Al-Bukhari, Volume 1, Book 12, Hadith 749, we find the following entry: ‘Narrated Abu Huraira: Allah’s Apostle said, “Say Amen when the Imam says Ghair-il-maghdubi ‘alaihim wala-ddal-lin; not the path of those who earn Your Anger (such as Jews) nor of those who go astray (such as Christians). . . .”’ Islamic scholar Robert Spencer reinforces Hadith 749 of Sahih Al-Bukhari in his book, The Complete Infidel’s Guide to the Koran, by citing the Koranic verses Muhammad refers to: ‘The Jews have earned Allah’s anger by rejecting Muhammad ([Koran] 2:90), and the Christians have gone astray by holding to the divinity of Christ ([Koran] 5:72).’”
Omar’s Oath of Office on the Koran: An Upfront Revocation of Allegiance to the Constitution
Ilhan Omar took her Oath of Office to uphold the Constitution of the United States on the Koran. But, since just about everything in the Koran runs counter to America’s Constitutional legal framework, such an act constitutes nothing less than a revocation of the oath Omar is taking. Much has been made of the fact that President Thomas Jefferson owned a Koran. But Jefferson used his copy of the Koran to understand his jihadist enemy, finding the use of it especially instructive during America’s war on the Muslim Barbary Pirates during his presidency.
Dr. Bill Warner has protested the use of the term “Thomas Jefferson’s Koran,” insisting that Americans recall that the Muslim holy book is, and always will be, Muhammad’s Koran—not Jefferson’s. Here is what Dr. Bill Warner says: “Let’s get the facts straight. Fact: It is not Jefferson’sKoran. It is Mohammed’s Koran. Fact: Jefferson owned a Koran to understand and defeat the Islamic Barbary Pirates. How many members of Congress have read the Koran & Sunna from cover to cover or have any idea what is written on these pages? Fact: We have evidence of our forefathers’ reference to the Koran: John Adams and Thomas Jefferson to John Jay, March 28, 1786. Fact: Tlaib [as well as Omar] is swearing her oath on a Koran in which over 20% written in Medina is about violent jihad. Fact: Tlaib [like Omar] is swearing her oath on a Koran that has 17% of its text from Mohammed’s time in Medina devoted to Jew hatred. Fact: Tlaib is swearing her oath on a Koran that says that Muslims are superior to all and the non-Muslim (Kafir) is lower than animals. It also says a Muslim is not the friend of a Kafir. Fact: Tlaib is swearing her oath on a Koran that says wives can be beaten. Fact: Tlaib is disingenuous when she says ‘I believe in secular government. . . .’ According to Islamic doctrine, a Muslim must be governed by the Allah-inspired Sharia, because Kafir (man-made) secular laws are not worth following. So either she is not a good Muslim or she is using taqiyya, sacred deception, to advance Islam. Fact: Tlaib [and therefore Omar as well] is swearing her oath on a book that declares our U.S. Constitution is not the highest law of the land. In short, Rashida Tlaib [and the same goes for Ilhan Omar], by swearing her oath on a Koran, commits an act of sedition.”
Although the US Constitution prohibits a religious test (nor does it mandate that any particular book must be used for taking the Oath of Office), the meaning of choosing a book for a swearing-in ceremony that goes against almost every aspect of the Constitution can betoken only one thing: an upfront refutation of all things Constitutional. Perhaps more appropriate might be taking the Oath on a copy of the US Constitution—or even the choice not to use any book whatsoever. But taking the Oath of Office on a book that condones wife-beating, honor-killing, the murder of non-Muslims, and, ultimately, the violent jihadist overthrow of any non-Muslim legal code—such as the Constitution—is more than a subversive act; it is outright sedition.
Omar’s Anti-Semitic Projection
Perhaps Ilhan Omar’s anti-Semitic charge that Jews are disloyal to the United States, because they love Israel, grows from the fertile soil of her own Islamically-based disloyalty to the country whose government she has now infiltrated. If Ilhan Omar sees the world the way she is, rather than the way it is, it is fair to wonder whether her accusations that others have a foreign allegiance only serves to project her own.
It is interesting to note that Islam was technically banned from the United States back in 1952. According to the Wikipedia, “The Immigration and Nationality Act of 1952 deemed aliens who were anarchists or members of, or affiliated with, the Communist Party or any other totalitarian organizations [such as Islam] that plan to overthrow the United States as deportable aliens. Aliens who were successors of any association of Communism, regardless of name changes, still fell under the deportable aliens. Aliens who advocated, taught, wrote, published in support for communism, a totalitarian dictatorship [such as Islam], and the overthrowing of the United States [per the Koran and the Sunna of Muhammad] were also deportable aliens.” This would actually rule out any and all doctrinaire Muslims from being allowed to immigrate into the country, since every religious Muslim believes that all secular doctrines must be overthrown, in preference for Sharia Law, since all things not guided in their creation by the Sharia are considered jahiliyya. In other words, Islamic immigration to the US should be prohibited under this law, because theKoran and the Sunna require complete submission to Islam, which is completely antithetical to Constitutional law. All Muslims who claim that the Koran guides how they live their lives are doctrinaire Muslims and should be prohibited entrance into the United States. While Americans have freedom of religion under the Constitution, foreigners do not enjoy American Constitutional rights and thus can be denied entrance, especially if they pose a danger to Americans. The religious test that is banned by the Constitution is only in the context of assuming a public office. (Aliens present in the US, while they receive human rights, do not receive Constitutional rights—such as the right to vote, the right to purchase a firearm, or the right to exercise other privileges of citizenship.)
Déjà Vu All Over Again: The Seeds of Fascist Socialism Are Planted by Anti-Semites
Fellow Jewish writer Jeff Dunetz, of Godfather Politics, recently had Ilhan Omar on his mind and wrote the following: “According to the FBI, almost60% of the hate crimes in 2017 based on religion were against Jews. Per the ADL [Anti-Defamation League], anti-Semitism in the US is growing substantially; anti-Jewish incidents increased by 57% in the US in 2017. IMHO [In my humble opinion] the growth in hatred was incited by eight years of Jew-hatred coming from President Obama, and at least a dozen years of hate from the Democratic Party. Antisemitism is rising sharply across Europe, experts have said, as France reported a 74% increase in the number offenses against Jews last year and Germany said the number of violent anti-Semitic attacks had surged by more than 60%. In Great Britain . . . the Labour Party is being recognized as anti-Semitic.”
Dunetz is also quick to point out that Americans have seen all of this before, during the 1920s and 1930s, when “a small party in Germany began to make anti-Semitic statements such as . . . Jews are not loyal to Germany. Most Germans said it’s just talking, they don’t really mean it. Eventually, the National Socialist German Workers’ Party, commonly known as the Nazis, was elected into power and six million Jews were murdered. Socialism and leftist extremists are taking over the Democratic Party and, like the socialist Nazis and Communist Russia[ns], they are making the Jews their scapegoats. And like the Germans of the 1920s and 1930s, today’s traditional Democrats like Nancy Pelosi claim the anti-Semites don’t really mean it. And leftist commentators such as Juan Williams claim the Jews aren’t bothered by the hatred. He can be hurt by racist comments, but he doesn’t believe Jews can have human feelings.” It is even true that many American Jews are not taking the Democrats’ anti-Semitism seriously—just as Max Naumann, founder of the Association of German National Jews, and Hans Schoeps, founder of the German Vanguard, failed to believe the anti-Semitism Hitler espoused was genuine.
Dunetz is right to remind people of the fact that the word “Nazi” was an abbreviation used for the National Socialists led by Hitler. Indeed, socialism has historically always ended up being anti-Semitic in every land that has ultimately embraced it, and Hitler was indisputably a socialist (the Nazi Party being rightly called the National Socialist German Workers’ Party). Hitler was, like Hugo Chavez, a Leftist who took power by means of democratic socialism, a form of government just as despotic as any other form of socialism—even though Democrats, like AlexandriaOcasio-Cortez, promote democratic socialism wholeheartedly. It was Ayn Rand who once said, “There is no difference between communism and socialism, except in the means of achieving the same ultimate end: communism proposes to enslave men by force, socialism—by vote. It is merely the difference between murder and suicide.”
AOC is also an anti-Semite, which places her in the same category with Ilhan Omar and Adolf Hitler. While under the Nazi brand of socialism, known as Fascism, people could nominally own and operate businesses, it was the state in the end that wrote all the rules by which businesses ran, and it was within the power of the state to take a business from one person and give it to another, if the business was not being run according to Party rules or expectations. While medicine and education were “free,” the people certainly were not free—not free to speak their minds, not free to defend their lives with weapons, not free from unreasonable searches or from unjust imprisonment. There were no individual rights at all. But so it is in all totalitarian states, no matter how charismatic their leaders are. Without doubt, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez possesses charisma, but so did Adolf Hitler and Benito Mussolini.
Islam Is Fascistic
Hitler lamented the fact that the Muslims lost the Battle of Tours in October of 732: “Had Charles Martel not been victorious at Poitiers . . . then we [Germans] should in all probability have been converted to Mohammedanism, that cult which glorifies heroism and which opens up the Seventh Heaven to the bold warrior alone. Then the Germanic races would have conquered the world.” Hitler admired Islam, due to its totalitarianism, militarism, and anti-Semitism.
According to compatriot Albert Speer, Hitler, while criticizing Christianity, said, “The Muhammadan religion . . . would have been much more compatible to us [Germans] than Christianity. Why did it have to be Christianity with its meekness and flabbiness?” Hitler hated not only Jews, but Christians as well, just like Muhammad.
Since doctrinaire Muslims, along with other anti-Semites, tend towards fascistic forms of socialism [Islam means “submission” and runs politically like a fascist state], ideologically speaking, Nancy Pelosi’s protection of Ilhan Omar and her “weird sisters” Rashida Tlaib and Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez could presage the ruination of the modern Democrat Party. We can only hope that Americans are philo-Semitic enough to make it so.
Hallelujah: President Trump Is Banishing the Darkness & Bringing the Light
President Trump, a guiding light when it comes to philo-Semitism versus anti-Semitism, made an illuminating comment about the Democrats’ holding Ilhan Omar harmless for her anti-Semitic comments, by watering down the language of the House resolution against bigotry so as not to target Omar’s anti-Semitism: “I thought yesterday’s vote by the House was disgraceful,” said the president, “because it’s become—the Democrats have become—an anti-Israel party; they’ve become an anti-Jewish party.” In closing, a Jewish prayer might be appropriate, in honor of President Trump’s daily efforts to restore good and freedom to America’s free republic: “Blessed are You, Lord our God, Ruler of the Universe, Who has given us life, sustained us, and allowed us to reach this day.”*
*In Judaism, there is a prayer known as the Shehecheyanu Blessing. It is commonly used to express thankfulness that we have arrived to this day, for whatever reason. Many Jews are using this prayer daily to express gratitude for Donald Trump’s presidency and for his campaign (aside from his stance against anti-Semitism) to drive out evil from the land and to change darkness to light, making each day worth celebrating. The Shehecheyanu Blessing goes like this: Barukh atah adonai eloheynu melekh ha’olam, shehecheyanu, v’kiyimanu, v’higiyanu la’z’man ha’zeh. [Blessed are You, Lord our God, Ruler of the Universe, Who has given us life, sustained us, and allowed us to reach this day.] For Jews who do not support the Death Cult of Leftism, but instead uphold Life-Choosing Judaism, every day of Trump’s presidency is a blessing.
