Arab/Islamic Terrorism, Buoyed by Support from Self-Proclaimed "Progressives," Continues to Take Lives in Israel

Yesterday, axe-wielding terrorists murdered three Jews in Israel, causing 16 children to become orphans. At least four other people were injured in the attack. One of the 16 orphaned children, a six year old boy, was with his father (Yonatan Habakuk, age 44) and saw his father killed while fighting the terrorists. As is always the case, Palestinian Arabs celebrated the murders, and flooded social media outlets with calls for more attacks against Jews. The harsh reality is that this is not about a political dispute or about "land for peace"; this is about Arab/Islamic terrorism that seeks to kill Jews worldwide and to destroy Israel

Witnesses heard the terrorists scream "Allahu Akbar," the rallying cry long-used by Arab/Islamic terrorists when they attack Jews. The terrorists believe that God is on their side--and they know that self-proclaimed "progressives" support them every step of the way. It is said that love is blind; the Left's love affair with Jew-murdering terrorists is blind to a host of awful truths, including that the Palestinian Authority's support of Russia's invasion of Ukraine continues the trend of Palestinian Arab support for tyranny

The silence of the "Squad" and other self-proclaimed "progressives" about terrorist attacks targeting Jews is something that all voters should remember on Election Day. A vote for any "Squad" member or sympathizer is a vote supporting antisemitism and anti-Zionism, and is a vote expressing support for Arab/Islamic terrorists killing Jews; that may be a harsh reality for many to accept--particularly for left-wing Jews--but it is the truth, and we see numerous examples of the consequences of elections. For example, newly appointed White House Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre has a long and well-documented history of antisemitism/anti-Zionism. The so-called moderate inhabiting the White House is either not as moderate as some of his supporters hoped/expected, or he feels powerless to resist the lobbying from the self-proclaimed "progressives" who dictate their demands to him; either way, the results are the same, and those results are not good for the United States, let alone for victims of terrorism.

Mort Klein, CEO of the Zionist Organization of America, issued a statement expressing his outrage at Jean-Pierre's appointment: "As a child of Holocaust survivors and as an American Jew, I am both appalled and frightened that Biden has chosen as his principal deputy press secretary, Ms. Jean-Pierre, who has shown essentially antisemitic hostility toward Israel and is willing to lie about and vilify Israel and Jews to promote her ugly Israelophobic agenda. Americans should be deeply concerned that this outrageous, incomprehensible anti-Israel, pro-terrorist and pro-Iran appointment indicates the dangerous direction the Biden administration is going to take against America’s greatest ally Israel and U.S.-Israel relations." 

Garry Kasparov correctly lamented that America used to be about striving for excellence but that the last two Presidential elections have been about choosing the lesser of two evils. I echo his call to reject both the American Left's embrace of socialism and the American Right's embrace of Donald Trump, and I hope that our country can provide leadership to the Free World instead of embracing mindless slogans and destructive ideologies.
