As America is hurtling towards its second civil war, American Jews are (again) making all the wrong choices
I know, I know, America is different, it has always treated Jews well, it has the Constitution, it’s the Goldene Medine (the Golden Country), it is populated by magical creatures with pointed ears, like Elves, who can never harm anyone, so Jews can finally be safe there forever, Amen.
If you believe the above nonsense, you shouldn’t waste your time with this article, but if you have any doubt, might as well keep reading.
At the beginning of the 20th century, the very large Jewish population of the Russian Empire (which included at that time most of Poland and all of today’s Ukraine, Belarus, and the Baltic states) became trapped. It was trapped between the line of the Bale of Settlement to the East and the relatively new and surging unified Germany to the west. Millions of Jews, most of them poor and poorly educated had nowhere to go and had no prospects, all while the economic and security conditions in the Empire were rapidly deteriorating and the competition between them and the native Gentile populations became progressively more severe.
This brought to the surface the pogrom phenomenon, a violent outburst of hatred towards Jews that included pitchforks and axes, looting and murder. In those areas where Jews had found safety and relative prosperity when they had fled the murderous crusades, expulsions, and rabid anti-Semitism of the Middle Ages in Western Europe, there was no more room for Jews.
In response to this pressure, Eastern European Jewry split into four parts. One part emigrated to America where they became the forefathers of most of today’s American Jewry. Another part, the smallest one of them all, decided to follow the newly minted Zionist dream and emigrate to Palestine, a province in the Ottoman Empire. These Jews laid the foundations for the modern State of Israel and most of their descendants still live there. A third part became communist revolutionaries and helped destroy the Russian Empire via a Bolshevik Revolution. The more senior cadre among them were all exterminated by Stalin in the 1930’s, others lived on, poor and disillusioned, until the collapse of the USSR in the early 1990’s forced them to emigrate to Israel, Gentile spouses in tow, begging to be considered Jews, an identification they had previously run away from, so they could be admitted under the Law of Return. Finally, the fourth and largest group, my family among them, did nothing. They stayed put, they survived, they minded their own business through famine, pogroms, revolution, and purges, until not less than 90% of them were slaughtered by the Nazis between 1940 and 1945.
Who is the winner? I mean who among these groups had made the right choice? Those members of the largest group who took no initiative other than survival were slaughtered like cattle, the few among them that survived leading lives of misery and poverty in the USSR until they could emigrate to Israel or to America can hardly be called winners. How about those who were willing accomplices to the Bolshevik’s crimes and suffered the consequences? The ideology they had believed in produced nothing but mass murder, torture, and economic collapse.
So we have our two finalists, the two groups of emigrants, the larger one that emigrated to where the pastures were green, peace and security were guaranteed, and the streets were paved in gold, and the other one, much smaller, that went to drain malarial swamps while being shot at by Arabs.
To judge who between these two groups had made the wiser choice, we need some criteria. Economic success would be one. Survival as Jews would be another. Long term, cross-generational physical survival would be the third. Agreed?
Now let’s see. In average economic terms, the Jews who came to America did much better than those who emigrated to Palestine and that is still true today, though the gap is closing. In terms of staying Jewish, the American Jewry is a disaster. Intermarriage is rampant, interest in Judaism as a whole, not just as a religion, almost non-existent, and Judaism the religion all but destroyed by the fake Reformed and Conservative denominations with their fake female rabbis and social justice agenda that is so foreign to real Judaism. This one has to go hands down to the Jews that chose Palestine.
So we have a tie here, folks, with one criterion to go: cross-generational physical survival. No need to dwell on this one for too long; it goes 100% to the Palestine cohort. Birth rates among American Jews are well below the sustainability level of 2.1 births per average female, which means that they simply have no physical future. In Israel, the descendants of those Jews who came to Palestine a century ago have birthrates that are at least 50% above sustainable. And then there is the other thing, the near future.
American Jewry is the last large exilic Jewry that remains in the world and it is being caught, as I am writing these lines, in a trap not too different from the one that consumed and eliminated the Eastern European Jewry from which it descends. American Jews are trapped between black and Muslim anti-Semitism and white nationalist anti-Semitism, both of equally murderous variety. They are trapped between the white nationalist perpetrator of the attack on the Tree of Life Synagogue in Pittsburgh and the black nationalist perpetrators of the attack on the Jewish supermarket in Jersey City and it is about to get much worse very quickly.
Just like in Eastern Europe a century ago, the American Jewish community is splintering under this pincer movement pressure and turning in on itself, brother against bother. Some, a few tens of thousands a year, are repatriating to Israel. Some are joining the political battle between nationalism and globalism that is now raging in America, most on the globalist side. Most, like is always the case, are trying to live their lives, become more and more invisible, more and more assimilated, hoping to simply survive.
But just like in Europe between the wars, it is already too late. The die has been cast, the battle royal between globalists who are supported by the so-called “people of color” and the nationalists who are overwhelmingly of European descent, or, simply put, white, is already raging and the fact that most Jews have chosen, yet again (!) the wrong side is not escaping anyone’s notice.
Not only have the American Jews chosen the morally bankrupt side in America’s Civil War 2.0, not only have they chosen the side that will most certainly lose, they have also chosen the side that lose or win hates them the most and is the most likely to physically exterminate them if the opportunity arises. In this, American Jewry is closely following in the footsteps of Leo Bronshtein aka Trotzky and other Eastern European Jews who joined with the Bolsheviks, who helped create bolshevism, and who paid the ultimate price for their choice.
Neither is there an escape for that minority of American Jews who have chosen the other side, the side of American nationalism. If you think that the Mark Levin’s of this world will be welcomed by the American nationalists when they have won the American civil war, you are gravely mistaken and you know nothing of history. Wars, most of all civil wars, change everything. They rip off overnight the sediments of civility and decorum that were laid down over decades and even centuries. Winners will want revenge and they will not look too closely who supported whom when the chips were down. All they will remember will be the Mike Bloomberg’s and the Bernie Sanders’s and the Chuck Schumer’s.
Will American Jews survive, if not as Jews than at least as people? I mean will they be slaughtered like the European Jews were? That scenario is unlikely for many reasons, including the existence of the State of Israel. Perhaps American Jews can survive via total assimilation as most are trying to do now, but I suspect that surnames with “berg” or “stein” will become rather uncomfortable to live with. Still, one can always change one’s last name to Smith. American Jews did just that with their first names, so why not with last? Perhaps so, but it is a little bit beside the point, isn’t it? The larger point is that America is quickly turning hostile to Jews who wish to remain Jews and this process, the process that is the inevitable destination of all exiles will continue until America is virtually Jew-free.
Throughout the very long Jewish history it was the minority that survived as Jews or even survived at all. Ten out of twelve tribes were lost, their descendants living as Muslims somewhere in the greater Middle East. Jewish DNA is everywhere, telling the story of mass assimilation over the ages. The few who steadfastly refuse to assimilate, who choose to remain Jewish even when it is quite disadvantageous to do so remain in history; most fall off its wagon.
American Jews would be well served ponder now, while there is time, the choices that they will make because the time is not far off when those choices will be made for them. This is history and if you believe that America lives outside of it, you should ask yourself this question: why in the heck would it?
