This is the latest slice of reality for what I call the “Lost Tribe” – i.e. Jews and non-Jews who support Israel, but still also support the Democrat left.
From an article from the Jewish Telegraphic Agency (JTA), via israelnationalnews.com:
Independent Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders criticized Israel’s use of force on the border with Gaza in a tweet.
“The killing of Palestinian demonstrators by Israeli forces in Gaza is tragic. It is the right of all people to protest for a better future without a violent response,” Sanders, who was a candidate for the Democratic presidential nomination in 2016 and the first Jewish presidential candidate to win nominating contests in a major party, tweeted on Saturday. The tweet garnered 26,000 likes.
He also tweeted: “Meanwhile, the situation in Gaza remains a humanitarian disaster. The U.S. must play a more positive role in ending the Gaza blockade and helping Palestinians and Israelis build a future that works for all.”
Sure, Bernie. That’s right. All they were doing was “protesting for a better future”.
Problem is, the “better future” they were protesting for was the obliteration of Israel – every square inch of it – and death to all Jews.
As, I suspect, most people know – including Lost Tribers – Gaza, where the “protests” are coming from, is ruled by hamas, which the U.S. designates as a terrorist group.
And hamas has a charter – one which it not only subscribes to, but, through its unity alliance, so does “moderate” fatah, which runs Judea and Samaria (aka the west bank).
Now a person-to-person request for Bernie Sanders – before getting to the lost tribers:
READ THE HAMAS CHARTER, you hopeless self-hating Jew.
Start with this part, which is placed even before the introduction:
Israel will exist and will continue to exist until Islam will obliterate it, just as it obliterated others before it” (The Martyr, Imam Hassan al-Banna, of blessed memory).
Does that look like hamas and the “protesters” it sent to Israel’s border are doing nothing other than looking for a better future for themselves, or that they would be receptive to “helping Palestinians and Israelis build a future that works for all”?
Then we have this, at the end of article 7:
Moreover, if the links have been distant from each other and if obstacles, placed by those who are the lackeys of Zionism in the way of the fighters obstructed the continuation of the struggle, the Islamic Resistance Movement aspires to the realisation of Allah’s promise, no matter how long that should take. The Prophet, Allah bless him and grant him salvation, has said:
“The Day of Judgement will not come about until Moslems fight the Jews (killing the Jews), when the Jew will hide behind stones and trees. The stones and trees will say O Moslems, O Abdulla, there is a Jew behind me, come and kill him. Only the Gharkad tree, (evidently a certain kind of tree) would not do that because it is one of the trees of the Jews.” (related by al-Bukhari and Moslem).
Continuing, with article 8 in its entirety:
Allah is its target, the Prophet is its model, the Koran its constitution: Jihad is its path and death for the sake of Allah is the loftiest of its wishes.
And one more: this excerpt from article 13:
Initiatives, and so-called peaceful solutions and international conferences, are in contradiction to the principles of the Islamic Resistance Movement. Abusing any part of Palestine is abuse directed against part of religion. Nationalism of the Islamic Resistance Movement is part of its religion. Its members have been fed on that. For the sake of hoisting the banner of Allah over their homeland they fight. “Allah will be prominent, but most people do not know.”
Now and then the call goes out for the convening of an international conference to look for ways of solving the (Palestinian) question. Some accept, others reject the idea, for this or other reason, with one stipulation or more for consent to convening the conference and participating in it. Knowing the parties constituting the conference, their past and present attitudes towards Moslem problems, the Islamic Resistance Movement does not consider these conferences capable of realising the demands, restoring the rights or doing justice to the oppressed. These conferences are only ways of setting the infidels in the land of the Moslems as arbitraters. When did the infidels do justice to the believers?
“But the Jews will not be pleased with thee, neither the Christians, until thou follow their religion; say, The direction of Allah is the true direction. And verily if thou follow their desires, after the knowledge which hath been given thee, thou shalt find no patron or protector against Allah.” (The Cow – verse 120).
There is no solution for the Palestinian question except through Jihad.
Does that look like a plaintive cry for peaceful co-existence, Bernie? And there’s plenty more in the charter just like it.
I again urge you, Mr. Sanders to read the charter – i.e. the guiding principles of what the people you are championing actually believe and want as a result. Then come back to me with your opinion of what happened at the Israeli border this weekend.
But, then again, why am I wasting my time asking you to do this? It probably won’t make any difference – because I would bet body parts you already know everything I’ve posted. And, given your avid support of “JStreet” – a supposedly pro-Israel group that never seems to find anything Israel does right or Palestinian Arabs do wrong – I doubt it will move you.
Now, to the Lost Tribe: if you have read this far, you know exactly what Bernie Sanders does.
How many of you voted for him. How many of you contributed your support to the 23 states he won Democrat primaries in?
Do you understand who and what you voted for? Or did you already know it, and act as robotic Democrat/leftists by ignoring or rationalizing this knowledge?
Either way, you’ve now got your latest heads-up. Maybe it is time for you to get your heads out – out from up your robotic rectums – and finally THINK about it.
