Americas Jewish left endorses anti-Jewish discrimination …

Stephen M. Flatow, an attorney in New Jersey, is the father of Alisa Flatow, who was murdered in an Iranian-sponsored Palestinian terrorist attack in 1995. His book, A Fathers Story: My Fight for Justice Against Iranian Terror, has just been published.

American Jewish peace activists who have spent much of their lives fighting discrimination against ethnic minorities, have decided there is one form of discrimination they support: discrimination against Jews who reside in Judea-Samaria.

I am referring to the open letter about the Airbnb controversy that was issued on December 4 by the New Israel Fund, J Street, Americans for Peace Now, Truah, and Partners for Progressive Israel.

Airbnb announced that it will remove listings in Israeli settlements in the occupied West Bank that are at the core of the dispute between Israelis and Palestinians.

If Airbnb had removed listings from all communities in that region, that would not be discriminatory. But thats not what it did. Airbnb removed listings only from Israeli (read: Jewish) communities. Arab settlements were not affected.

To appreciate what Airbnb has done, consider the case of the city of Hevron. Some of its Palestinian Arab residents illegally occupy homes that were stolen from Jews during the 1929 pogrom. Deeds exist proving that. Such Palestinian settlements in Hebron are certainly part of the dispute between Israelis and Palestinians. Not only did the Jewish leftwing Gang of Five defend Airbnb in their open letter, but they proceeded to formally delegitimize every Jewish community in Judea-Samaria.But Airbnb is still doing business with them.

And what about illegal Palestinian Arab settlements in Shechem, better known as Nablus? Until the 1930s, there was a large and thriving Jewish community there. Today there is not a single Jewish resident in Shechem. Wonder what ever happened to them? Arab pogromists drove them out and took their homes. Airbnb apparently has no problem with that.

And neither, it seems, do the New Israel Fund, J Street, et al. Not only did the Jewish leftwing Gang of Five defend Airbnb in their open letter, but they proceeded to formally delegitimize every Jewish community in Judea-Samaria.

Airbnbs de-listings will only occur in illegitimate West Bank settlements, the Gang of Five asserted. Airbnb objects to the settlements not because they are Jewish but because they usurp Palestinian land.

The claim that every Jewish community in the territories is illegitimate and usurps Palestinian land is, of course, a vicious lie. It echoes the longtime Arab propaganda argument that Jews have no valid religious, historic, or legal connection to Judea and Samariathe territories that have been the heart of the national Jewish homeland for 3,000 years.

In the view of these five groups, every inch of Judea and Samaria is Palestinian land, and any Jew who lives there is an usurper who deserves to be boycotted, treated as a pariah, and eventually driven out.

Obviously if Jewish leftwing groups choose to support anti-Jewish discriminationby boycotting only Jewish settlements and not Arab onesthat is their right according the U.S. Constitution. And if these groups want to advocate that every inch of Judea and Samaria is usurped Palestinian land, that, too, is their right.

But that does not mean the organized American Jewish community has to treat such racist positions as legitimate.

The Conference of Presidents of Major American Jewish Organization overwhelmingly rejected J Streets application for membership several years ago. That was a wise move. Jewish umbrella groups that have relationships with the New Israel Fund and the other members of the Gang of Five should reconsider whether they want to maintain those relationships.

Partners for Progressive Israel (PPI), for example, is a member of the American Zionist Movement. Its fair to ask whether PPIs support for discrimination against Israeli Jews is consistent with the AZMs declared mission is to strengthen the connection of American Jews with Israel; develop their appreciation of the centrality of Israel to Jewish life worldwide; deepen their understanding of Israeli society and the challenges it faces; encourage travel, long-term visits and Aliyah to Israel; and to facilitate dialogue, debate and collective action to further Zionism in the United States and abroad.

Is advocating discrimination against Jews in Judea-Samaria consistent with the AZMs mission statement?

Free speech is a sacred principle. I would never advocate that any point of view should be suppressed or prohibited. At the same time, Jewish umbrella organizations have no obligation to embrace those whose activities conflict with the umbrella groups declared mission. Refraining from such an embrace would not impinge on the radicals right or ability to say what they want. It would simply mean not conferring Jewish communal legitimacy upon those who are now promoting discrimination against some Jews.

Marcion – Anti-Jewish | Christian Forums

Evidence of his influence is still seen.

Click to expand…

Thankfully, theology itself in the Early Church doesn’t lend itself to the idea to assume that anything pertaining to the OT was automatically within the negative and only that within the NT was good. For the heresy of Marcionism tried to divorce the God of the OT from the God of the NT in a false scenario …but the Early Church valued OT practice (more shared here, here, here) and thankfully combated him…

And even outside of Marcionism, there were others promoting the spirit of lawlessness whenever they would try to add on to what God commanded of believers in the New Covenant and say that it was a matter of keeping the Law – for in doing so, that’d be a matter of sin. This is what the Ebionites (certain camps of them, specifically) were guilty of opposite of Marcion when they advocated the keeping of all aspects of the OT in order to avoid being lawless as they saw it….for going past what Yeshua noted and what God promoted is what lawlessness is about…..and lawlessness was never about not following all things solely in Mosaic code. When God gave different laws to different groups, that was the Law they were to be for – and to go back to a previous system of law was disobedience in itself – as well as promoting the wrong law.

1 John 3:4 [ Sin and the Child of God ] Whoever commits sin also commits lawlessness, and sin is lawlessness.5 And you know that He was manifested to take away our sins, and in Him there is no sin.

Click to expand…

Sin is what lawlessness is defined by – not systems of law given at one time or another. To those under the Law of Moses, to go past that was SIN – and at the same time, there were others not bound by the Mosaic Law (like Jethro of Midian and others like Noah ) who were given differing requirements/laws (as the Gentiles were outside of Israel ) and to not be faithful to that was SIN – for them. And likewise, in Matthew 7, many quote that saying “That’s the way Yeshua will speak to the Gentiles since they were lawless (i.e. not under Mosaic Code!!!”) yet the context is one where he was speaking primarily to a Jewish audience – warning them of false prophets who were doing many things that were approved of/asked by the Lord…but it wasn’t His HEART nor was it His Will for them.

There’s an excellent paper on the issue elsewhere if interested – as it address the Anti-Semitism present in Marcionism and other systems that developed to combat it and yet went in other directions. ..for the paper explores Ebionism and Marcionism, two early church heresies which depict the two most antithetical forms of the Judaism-OT and Christianity-NT breach in early Christianity. It addresses Ebionism’s philo-Semitlism and Marcionism’s chagrin for the Jewish roots of Christianity – both shown to be antecedents to certain contemporary heretical conceptions …and both having a corrective found in Paul’s metaphor of God’s revelatiory-redemptive olive tree (Romans 1/:/7-24) which aptly describes the dual necessity of the root and the branches, that is the Old and New Testaments.

Obama: GOP Is ‘Just Blatantly, Repeatedly, Baldly, Shamelessly’ Lying

Friday in Miami, at a rally for Sen. Bill Nelson (D-FL) and the Democratic candidate for Florida Governor, Andrew Gillum, former President Barack Obama said Republicans are “just blatantly, repeatedly, baldly, shamelessly” lying to “terrify folks” for the midterm election. Obama said, “We all try to put a positive spin on things, but what we have not seen the way we are seeing right now is politicians just blatantly, repeatedly, baldly, shamelessly lie. Just making stuff up. That’s what they’re doing now all the time. By the way, it’s not the first time. They do this every election cycle. Try to terrify folks and then the election comes and problem suddenly magically vanishes. You never hear about it again. In 2010 they said Bill and I were setting up death panels to kill your grandma. Remember that? In 2014 they said Ebola is going to kill all of us, shut the borders. In 2016 it was Hillary’s emails. They were all wound up about that.” He continued, “Now in 2018 they’re telling you the existential threat to America is a bunch of poor refugees a thousand miles away.
