Jews Love Me Like "King Of Israel", Donald Trump Tweets

President Donald Trump speaks with reporters before boarding Air Force One at Morristown Municipal Airport in Morristown N.J. Aug. 18 2019

Trump was speaking to reporters about two Democratic congresswomen, Rep. Ilhan Omar of Minnesota and Rep. Rashida Tlaib of MI, whose trip to Israel was canceled over their efforts to boycott the country. It is a deeper and older one than anything we would even recognise as a nation-state.

She declined, saying her grandmother had ultimately urged her not to come under what they considered to be humiliating circumstances. "I don't like the Jews to be taken into political party discussions".

"To say otherwise, and depend only on one party, particularly in these turbulent times of increased hate and anti-Semitism, only weakens and divides the most important Jewish community in the Diaspora", they mentioned in a press release.

Trump waves as he walks to board Marine One on the South Lawn of the White House Wednesday, Aug. 21, 2019, to begin his trip to Louisville, KY. Mr. Trump made the remarks at the 75th annual convention for American Veterans (AMVETS), a volunteer-led organization formed by veterans.

"Israeli leaders who prize the support they have enjoyed from the broad bipartisan consensus in the United States would be wise to make clear that they disagree with President Trump's statements yesterday", he said.

Brooks said he believes the Democratic Party eventually "will become very strongly anti-Jewish and anti-Israel". The long term effect of this and Netanyahu's silence could result in a significant shift in how the United States relates to Israel and how USA politicians talk about the country. For the context of this next quote, Root said Trump is "America's first Jewish president" just like how Bill Clinton was "America's first black president".

Anti-Defamation League head Johnathon Greenblatt criticised the president in an interview with CNN on Wednesday.

Bernie Sanders Releases Green New Deal Plan to ‘Save the World’
Sanders pledges to end unemployment by "creating 20 million jobs needed to solve the climate crisis". The campaign said its Green New Deal plan will pay for itself over 15 years, despite the price tag.

The president knows that anti-Semitic incidents over the past two years have all been perpetrated by white supremacists, and when he frames Jews as disloyal, he only adds fuel to this fire of hatred.

Ms Tlaib is a US-born Palestinian American, while Ms Omar was born in Somalia. And even if - big if - Israeli Jews did feel that way, he spoke about Israelis.

The status quo in America, until now, has kept these two groups more or less apart, as they did not face a common threat from the presidency itself.

JEREMY BEN-AMI: Seventy-plus percent of Jewish Americans vote Democratic in every single election since exit polling began. At the time, Root claimed he was "personally requested" to speak by the President.

Against the backdrop of Trump's standing as the most emphatically pro-Israel president ever and the most genuinely philo-Semitic president in well over a century, there is simply no comparing his slipshod quip with the vile anti-Semitism routinely espoused by the likes of Reps.

American Muslims and Jews working together would set an example for Israeli Muslims and Jews to find a common ground of their own. Yet insofar as Trump merely meant that Jews are "disloyal" to Jewish self-interest when those Jews vote for a political party increasingly brazen in its promotion of overt Jew-hatred, he is on very solid ground.

Bringing the Israel-Palestine peace process back from the dead demands both American Muslims and American Jews take an active role in it. If we as a planet can survive these years, and bonds forged now remain lasting, there is a reason for hope.
