During the campaign, and again since the Tuesdays press conference about Charlottesville, there have been claims that President Trump is an anti-Semite. All over the MSM there are claims (usually made by Gentiles) that Trump made a moral equivalence between the alt-Right haters, and the alt-left ones. They also claim that Jews supporting Trump are inching away from the POTUS, because hes proven his hatred of the Jewish people. This morning Congressman Nadler (D-NY) submitted a bill that between all the Whereases, he accused the president of siding with the neo-nazis and surroundinghimself with, and cultivated the influence of, senior advisors and spokespeople who have long histories of promoting white nationalist, alt-Right, racist and anti-Semitic principles and policies within the country. Sorry folks but those claims are what we call in the mamma loshen (mother tongue/Yiddish) dreck (which means trash or sh*t, take your pick).

Just as important is the fact that the MSM and Democrats, who are projecting the opinion that President Trump has a problem with the Jews, said nothing when President Obama said or did things which can be interpreted as anti-Semitic, and shy away from giving Obama and other people who deserve such labels like Al Sharpton, Keith Ellison, Linda Sarsour and the leaders of the womens march, their appropriate Anti-Semitic titles. Its almost if someone wandered into an ancient cave and discovered a term they never knew existed, and the term was found in an envelope labeled, do not use unless it damages Donald Trump. Cant you hear anti-Trump newscasters like Shepard Smith exclaiming, Wow, Anti-SemitismWhod have thought it!

I am aJew who is active in Jewish causes and has personally had to fight Antisemitism, especially since I started writing and self-identified as a conservative. Recognizing the dangers of Antisemitism and the growing problems with anti-Jewish bigotry in the world, IMHO one of the worst things someone can do is make false charges of Antisemitism. Not only does it dilutethe effects of real charges of Antisemitism, but it goes against Jewish law dictating how people should talk to each other.

Throughout the campaign Trump faced false charges of Antisemitism:

There was the infamous JewishStar tweet that Trump thought was a sheriffs badge picture. The picture was insensitive because somebody in the campaign should have been smart enough to know it would cause problems. But thebadge was not in the least anti-Semitic (unless of course, one is a liberal). If this Trump picture is anti-Semitic, so is every member of the Sheriffs department in Suffolk County where I live, whose badges are the same shape (and I can assure you they arent).Taos New Mexico and San Francisco sheriffs use the exact same shape to name a few.

There were cases of Antisemitism by some of Trumps alt-right supporters, I faced them as well as others, but not one of those attackswere condoned by the candidate.

Two weeks before the election Peter Drier of the Huffington Post made his false and ridiculous charges of anti-Semitism.Dreier claimed:

Trumps most recent anti-Semitic remarks were in a speech, and a tweet, last week that included this line: Hillary Clinton meets in secret with international banks to plot the destruction of U.S. sovereignty in order to enrich these global financial powers, her special interest friends and her donors. He didnt need to use the word Jew. This imagery of a global banking cabal will be familiar to anyone who has read The Protocols of the Elders of Zion, the anti-Semitic forgery that has fueled anti-Jewish violence for over a century. These are well-known anti-Semitic code words. The speech typical of Trumps paranoid conspiracy theories was designed to fire up Trumps white nationalist, anti-Semitic base

PUULEESE! So It was OK when Bernie Sanders campaigned on the basis that Hillary was beholden to the big banks? Guess what? The reason Trump didnt use the word Jew was that he wasnt talking about Jews. Perhaps he was thinking about Occupy Wall Street which used the anti-Semitic imagery that Dreier referred to. That same Occupy Wall Street was supported by President Obama and other prominentDemocrats.

And no one during the campaign mention all the anti-Semites who support Clinton, people like Al Sharpton who led TWO anti-Semitic pogroms in NYC, or the Center for American Progress which was labeled anti-Semitic by the respected Simon Wiesenthal Center.

Some said that when Jews were left off the press release for Holocaust Memorial day, it was a display of Trumps Antisemitism. As I wrote at the time, leaving out Jews was insensitive and ignorant, but it wasnt anti-Semitic.

Putting aside for a moment,that for Trump to be an anti-Semite he would have to hate his daughter Ivanka who is a Shabbos-observant Jew, as is his son-in-law Jared Kushner, and their three children. The presidents son Erics wife, Lara Yunaskav, is Jewish according to Jewish law (because her mom is Jewish), and when the child, she is carrying is born, it will be considered Jewish also.

Trump has been very generous in donating to Jewish Organizations, and thats how he earned the honor of being grand marshal of the Israel Day parade. In Jewish charities, typically the highest honors go to the biggest donors.

Trump counts Jews among his circle of friends, including Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu (something that was very obvious when he visited Israel in May) and New England Patriots owner Robert Kraft.

Whats really amazing is the fact that the MSM makes-up charges of Antisemitism against President Trump but ignored eight years of very real anti-Semitic acts by his predecessor, Barack Obama.

Beginning with his first campaign for president, Obama surrounded himself with anti-Semites like General Merrel McPeak, 2008 Obama for President Co-Chair who had an impressive resume of blaming our foreign policy on the Jewish Lobby. Perhaps the best example of McPeaks anti-Semitism was when he was asked during an interview why there isnt peace in the Middle East and he said, New York City. Miami. We have a large vote vote, here in favor of Israel. And no politician wants to run against it. (in other words, those pesky Jews, who control Americas policy on the Middle East).

One of his first presidential appointments was the anti-Semitic Chas Freeman who blamed his resignation on the evil Israel lobby (a nicer way of saying Jewish lobby). Actually, Chas, it was a lot less than an evil Israel lobby, much of it was the work of a few Jewish bloggers one of whom was named The Lid.

Obamas first presidential Medal of Freedom honorees were both Jew-haters, Bishop Desmond Tutu and Mary Robinson. The nicest thing Bishop Desmond Tutu ever said about Jews was People are scared in this country [the US], to say wrong is wrong because the Jewish lobby is powerful. He also once said, that the Jews thought they had a monopoly on God.

Tutus co-honoree Mary Robinson presided over the World Conference against Racism, Racial Discrimination, Xenophobia and Related Intolerance that turned into a non-stop hate-fest against Jews and Israel. The conference was so anti-Semitic that Colin Powell, the Secretary of State at the time, walked out.

During his presidency, Obama has allied himself with Al Sharpton who started the anti-Semitic pogrom in Crown Heights and incited the anti-Semitic fire bombing of Freddys Fashion Mart in Harlem. He sent his closest adviser, Valerie Jarrett, to keynote an anti-Semitic ISNA conference whose discussions included: how key Obama aides are Israeli, proving Jews have control of the world, or how the Holocaust is a punishment of Jews for being serially disobedient to Allah.

Remember Occupy Wall Street? They talked about how Jewish bankers were destroying the world. Of the anti-Semitic Occupy Wall Street movement the President said, We are on their side.

RadicalIslamists attacked theKosher supermarket Hyper-Cacher (French for Super Kosher) in Paris on a Friday afternoon. The attack happened just before the Jewish Sabbath when they knew it would be crowded with Jews. Obama first insisted it was a random act and not an anti-Semitic act. And when the world leaders came together to march in Paris as a protest against the Charlie Hebdo shooting and the anti-Semitic Hyper-Cacher attack Obama was conspicuous in his absence.

President Obamas July 31, 2015, phone call, organized by the anti-Israel group J Street and other progressive Jewish groups, also exposed Obamas feeling about Jews.

During the 20-minute phone call Obama said over and over that opponent of the Iran deal come from the same array of forces that got us into the Iraq war, he said a bunch of billionaires who happily finance super PACs are putting the squeeze on members of Congress.

The message was clear to the Jewish participants, William Daroff Senior Vice President for Public Policy andDirector of the Washington office of The Jewish Federations of North America tweeted during the meeting Jews are leading effort to kill #Irandeal. Same people opposing the deal led us into Iraq war, and followed with Canard: Jews got us into Iraq War. During the call, Lee Rosenberg of AIPAC questioned the Presidents statement comparing people who object to the Iran deal with those who supported the invasion of Iraq. He pointed out that many anti-Semites falsely claim the Jews pushed Bush into invading Iraq. Obama explained that Netanyahu supported the Iraq invasion (true). But Bibi wasnt the premier at the time he was a private citizen.

The prime minister, Ariel Sharon, strongly urged Bush not to invade Iraq, arguing correctly that if Saddam were removed, Iran, a far more dangerous player, will be rid of its principal enemy and free to pursue its ambitions of regional hegemony.

Of course, that didnt matter to President Obama, he needed to find a Jewish scapegoat so he used private-citizen Netanyahu who was strongly for the war. Also for the war was his V.P. Joe Biden, both of his secretaries of state Kerry and Clinton, and his biggest ally in the Senate, Minority Leader Harry Reid, all of whom voted for the invasion of Iraq in Congress.

During his last month as president, ObamasState Department condemned Israel for allowing peopleto build houses on land on the western side of the Jordan River. The land was legally purchased in 2009 by Dr. Irving andCherna Moskowitz from a US Presbyterian Church. There were no complaints when the Presbyterian Church owned it. Team Obama wasnt objecting to the fact that houses were being built on that land.If the homes were intended for Christian or Muslimfamilies there would have been no issue. As it is was with so many other cases during the Obama administration, the objection was based on the fact that Jews were going to live in those buildings.

NOT ONCE! Not once in all those (and other) cases where Obama and his team seemed to step over the line into anti-Semitism territory were there questions from the media asking Obama if he had an issue with Jews. Not once did any of the mainstream media point out Obamas possible anti-Semitism (and thereare many more examples not pointed out here).

The media was all over that Trump issued picture of Hillary with Sheriffs badges, but they were awfully quiet when she said Orthodox Jews were like the religious fanatics in Iran because the IDF allowed Orthodox Soldiers to leave a concert when women were singing. They were all over every unsubstantiated claim of a Trump bias, but ignored the report that came out during the 2016 campaign that when Bubbalost the 1974 election for the US House of Representatives from Arkansas, she turned to her then boyfriends campaign manager Paul Fray and called him af**king Jew b*stard.Frey not only reported the incident but took a lie detector test to prove he wasnt lying. Even if they didnt want to report the incident as reported by the Guardian, why didnt they try to investigate the story to see if it was true? It would have been huge. But of course, it wouldnt have hurt Trump.

In his bookAmerican Evitaon page 50, Christopher Anderson writes relates a1973anti-Semitic incident where Hillary Clinton refused to enter a home because it had a menorah on its door. Understand, the guy didnt have an Israeli flag on his door buta symbol of his Jewishness. It was okay to look into Trumps background and get second-hand reports about bigotrybut they would never investigate Hillary.

When the media talks about Al Sharpton they call him a civil rights leader, rather than an anti-Semitic bigot. They never mentioned that the leaders of the Day Without Woman were anti-Semites. They didnt care about anti-Semitism.

But because he pointed out that there were bad people on both sides of the Charlottesville violence, Donald Trump, a man with Jewish grandchildren, Jewish friends, and a man who is a huge (or yuge) donor to Jewish causes is accused of Antisemitism despite the fact that he has never done anything anti-Semitic.

Just more proof of the bias of mainstream media. They dont give a rats arse about anti-Semitismeven violent attacks on Jews are ignored. To the MSM Jewish blood is cheap and threats against Jews do not matterunless of course, they can help their fake narrative that President and his administration are bigots.
