I just had another idea: since Jews were ethnically cleansed out of Arab lands - Syria, Iraq, Jordan, etc., etc., - and their property stolen, why not relocate the Palestinians there, on the Jews' former property? True, they might not want to leave Israel, but the Jews didn't want to leave the Arab lands, either.

One liberal even told me that my mother must regret that she didn't abort her "Hitler child" (nice, huh?) because I criticized the BDS movement. How backward is THAT?!

The most telling was the incident with Omar, in which she accused Jews of buying off Congress with their "Benjamins." Pelosi and the Ds were so afraid of offending people by issuing a resolution condemning antisemitism that they had to water it down to the point that Omar said it was a resolution condemning Islamophobia! That's how much the Democrats had to hide their condemnation of Jew-hate. And if any Jew, like yours truly, criticized Omar, she was promptly called anti-Muslim. It's gotten so bad that they practically demand you side with the Muslims against Jews, even with the Muslim puts forth anti-Semitic tropes.
Yes. This is very disturbing.
I had a political conversation with a non-Jewish/non-Muslim coworker in which I voiced that as a Jew I was offended by Omar's statements.
She was so "offended" she brought me to management and still isn't talking to me!

Oh my!

Yes, that is an example of the "soft antisemitism" among leftists. Jews who criticize antisemitic comments by a Muslim are promptly put in their place. It's almost like Jews aren't permitted to be offended (or at least say so) if a Muslim is the offender.

No, we're not permitted to be offended. Especially if a black or Muslim person is the offender.
Yet everyone else is permitted to be offended by racism, all the time.
And it is expected that others will respect it.
Highly unfair, and I would suggest: anti-Semitic.

Those comedians don't come from the settlements....in general...nor the Sabras.

One should not discuss politics or religion or Trump in the workplace. No good can come of it.

In fact, one should probably not discus these things anywhere.

Let's be frank. He wants Juden and Muslim Frei America...oh, and blacks and brown people also.

I wonder what his opinion is on why Asians are so much smarter then "his people"? Or why so many Brown people have jobs at Google? It would be interesting to hear him stretch.

I'm glad he is representing the GOP...makes it quite clear what they stand for. White Nationalism and going backwards in general. Taking credit for stuff you didn't do.

And I just had an idea: why doesn't the US take in all of the Israeli settlers that are continuing to build illegal settlements on occupied Arab lands?

I hope you're not referring to the land that was formerly Jordan as "occupied." That land was won by when Jordan (and other Arab countries) tried to destroy Israel.

As I said on another thread, you can talk about voting "blocs" like Blacks and Jews, but starting talking about cutting Social Security and Medicare, you will have an even bigger Senior voting block. That one crosses all racial and religious lines.

Do a search right here on DU and listen to the comments.
