Since 1992 we saw that the days of steadfast Democrat support for Israel was waning. We saw it during the Democrat primaries when Howard Dean rose to the top of the pack following his referring to Hamas as “soldiers,” then his assurance to Jews that he would be a safe candidate because, “my wife is Jewish.” We saw further evidence during the 8 years of the Obama Administration – the FIRST J Street President who showed America, the world, and other weak-kneed Democrats that openly criticizing Israel and “creating daylight” between the US and Israel, would not lead to any political consequences.
We understood what Israel and the Jews were facing when Jewish publications like Haaretz and The Forward, pundits like Peter Beinart, and activists like IfNotNow, openly called on America to punish Israel, while the ADL continued to serve as an arm of the Democratic Party.
In 2018, we ALL saw it, when the Jewish Left said, “They are just 4 voices,” and they ignored the real threat and the power of 4 openly antisemitic freshmen, and how they would dictate our foreign policy. These 4 voices, together with their supporters in Gaza and Ramallah, blood-libel Israel with terms like “genocide,” “ethnic cleansing,” and “apartheid.” These false terms are used intentionally to delegitimize Israel while enflaming the Arab streets against Israel and Jews worldwide. For the first time, Jews living in New York, home to the largest Jewish population in America, are being set upon by these hate-mongering mobs, in large measure, because we ignored all these warnings.
Now, in 2021, we are seeing the consequences of all these warnings that were dismissed and swept under the rug by those putting loyalty to a political ideology over the well-being of the one Jewish State.
Professor Rosenbaum gives a no-holds barred interview calling out and shaming those high profile “Jewish” politicians and political strategists, specifically calling out Senator Schumer, Congressman Jerrold Nadler, former Mayor Rahm Emmanuel, and political strategist David Axelrod who abandoned Israel in deference to their loyalty to the Democratic Party.
