Israel’s 2019 Election: Fixing The Israeli-American Jewish Rift

This double entendre may cut either way. So-called pundits are currently going to great lengths to misdirect and divert attention from the core, and sole, repairable problem. The Israeli-American Jewish Rift is not about the “Palestan Problem” since Israeli voters largely realize that, ignoring campaign rhetoric, whomever is elected isn’t expected to change that situation…

Racism in Israel: When, And Why, Ha•lâkh•âh Went Dark

Racism as an example I started from the earliest times, checking to find when things first went awry. When I think about racism within Yi•sᵊr•â•eilꞋ (the nation), the facts lead me to dismiss the notion of inherent racism at the time of Mōsh•ëhꞋ, citing the eiꞋrëv rav. Likewise, , the facts lead me to dismiss…

The Root Of Innate Jewish Racism

The root of Israeli racism isn’t solely against Ethiopians, nor skin color, nor even Arabs. Israeli racism is Jewish racism on steroids. Even among Ashkenazim seculars, exclusive Jewish genetic chosenness supremacism (EJGCS) grows from a superstitious awe of a core European-Ashkenazi Ultra-Orthodox Khareidim (EAUK) root, which has persecuted, and continues to torment, non-Ashkenazim whom the…

R. Riskin’s Myopia; The Gaping Israeli-American Jewish Rift

Contrary to Nadav Shragai’s excessive admiration in Israel ha-Yom (https://bit.ly/2W92Wzl), the up-to-date reality is that there are a number — a growing number — of Torah scholars who have a significantly deeper understanding of essential aspects of U.S. Jewry impacting the current Orthodox-Non-Orthodox rift in global Jewry than Rabbi Dr. Shlomo Riskin. This growing number…

American Jewry’s & Israelis’ Misconception Of “The American View”

Response to Prof. Abraham Ben-Tzvi in Israel ha-Yom (2019.05.03). Most of what Prof. Ben-Tzvi writes here is accurate and well-reasoned. However, his “backdrop” view of “Americans’ perceptions” of Israel, upon which he depends as a premise to inform his subsequent reasoning, is wildly skewed by his own, Jewish, misperception of mainstream Americans’ view of Israel(is)–which…

Israel’s Nation-State Law—The Good, The Bad & The Ugly

The Good The modern state of Israel was conceived in answer to the socialist (Nazi) Shoah after WW-II, as a refuge-home for Jews globally; security against future threats of annihilation of Jews. Thus, the Nation-State Law, formally and officially defining Israel as such, is good. The archeological evidence found throughout Israel pre-dates Islam, Christianity—and Jews!…

הלולא (“Hilula”) updated in Glossary

Took several weeks of research & wrestling with gnarly implications to (I hope) make it now look simple (in the “More” icon page). Some of it relates to Pesakh. Khag ha-Matzot Sameiakh. (Go to http://www.netzarim.co.il, click on the E-J glossary page, then browser search either in English or Hebrew. Those who have visited the page…

Jewish & Israeli Anti-Arab Racism

Currently, there is much debate, and scathing criticism from Netanyah’s Likud party, in Israel over the “Blue & White” party’s possible alliance with Israeli Arab parties in a coalition following elections next month. From the Torah perspective, there is no longer any way to identify descendants of Amaleiq. There has never been any barrier to…

Israeli-Diaspora Rift: Orthodox Rabbinate Abuses Non-Orthodox Jews

The modern state of Yisraeil (Israel) was intended to be the ancestral home for Jews. But the Orthodox Rabbinate has disenfranchised all non-Orthodox—nearly 85% of world Jewry—as “goyim” unless they can racially prove their maternal genetic “Jewish” DNA. (This despite Israel-Jacob being born of the same mother as his twin, Esau–patriarch of about half of…

Israelis See Distortion Of American Jewry Thru Tainted Lenses

A couple of articles pertinent to the ‘Jewish Israeli-American Rift’, and pivoting on liberal American-Jewish/​Democrat Trumpophobia, appeared in Israel haYom yesterday (2019.02.19): one by an insider Jewish-American diplomat, Elliott Abrams (Are American Jews disenchanted with Israel?), and the other by a Belgian-Australian Israeli Jew, Isi Leibler (The disintegration of American Jewry). These articles should both…
