Ilhan Omar’s Sanctions Hypocrisy

Originally published January 12, 2020

(January 12, 2020 / JNS) The bias of Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-Minn.) revealed itself yet again this week, in the aftermath of the killing of Iranian general and arch terrorist Qassem Soleimani. In her rush to condemn the U.S. administration and President Donald Trump’s declaration of increased economic sanctions on Iran, she forgot that she approves of sanctions when it politically and personally suits her. “This makes no sense,” Omar exclaimed on Twitter. “Sanctions are economic warfare. They have already caused medical shortages and countless deaths in Iran. You cannot claim to want deescalation and then announce new sanctions with no clear goal. This is not a measured response!” This was not the first…

Five Reasons Why The Left Went Insane Over Soleimani’s Death

Originally published January 8, 2020

This past week, President Trump took the courageous and bold action and ordered the hit on Iranian General Qasem Soleimani, killing one of the leaders in global terror and a man responsible for the death of hundreds of Americans and countless others. Under normal circumstances, this would have been seen as a strategic and morally good decision, and would have received praise from the media and Democrats, with some outlying wonderment as to the ramifications of the act. These, however, are not normal times, because Donald Trump is President and he is reviled by the Left. Therefore, much of the reaction to this event has been thoroughly insane, even by the political standards of the day. Those reactions basically break down into five different groups: Those Who Hate Ame…

The Left’s Hilariously Low Expectations For The Islamic World

Originally published January 8, 2020

In the days since the killing of Iranian terrorist-in-chief Qassem Soleimani, the media and Democrats have bent over backwards trying to show that Soleimani was anything other than a piece of human garbage who deserved his fate. While they do this out of a greater hatred for President Trump than hatred for the killer of hundreds of Americans and countless others, they also display yet another instance of low American expectations for the Middle East. A recent example is the selective use of the term “cultural sites.” In response to the death of Soleimani, the Iranians raised a red flag over a significant cultural site, Jamkarān Mosque in Qom, Iran. According to Dr. Mordechai Kedar, a senior lecturer in the Department of Arabic at Bar-Ilan University, “This red flag is a call for the death…

Can California Be Saved?

Published January 6, 2020

With the beginning of a New Year, new state laws are going into effect all over the country.  Given that 36 states in the union have been completely controlled by one party in 2019, many partisan policies are becoming realized.  No state, however, is doing more to control every aspect of its citizens lives than California.  With the current downward trajectory of the Golden State, Californians need to address how they can right the ship going into a new decade. California itself is a study in dichotomy.  The state is simultaneously home to the wealthiest people in the world and 130,000 homeless people (around a quarter of the nations homeless population).  Silicon Valley boasts the greatest technology, yet the state has as many droughts and power outages as a third-world nation.   While the state fancies itself the…

The Jewish Nation

Originally published December 11, 2019

With the news of President Trump signing an executive order affirming the fact that Judaism can, in fact, be seen as a nationality (as opposed to a religion), left-wing groups and pundits — both Jewish and non-Jewish — have declared that this action is anti-Semitic. These groups seem to despise the notion of a Jewish nation. In his 2018 book, “Judaism, Zionism, and the Land of Israel”, Rabbi Yotav Eliach begins the history of the Jewish people in Israel with the definition of a nation and how Judaism fits into that definition. That premise is pivotal when discussing the conflicts of the Middle East, as it cuts against the left-wing and Arabist arguments that the Jews are a colonial interloper in Palestinian-Arab land. Zionism is, itself, Jewish nationalism. Those who classify themselves as “anti-Zionist” are anti-Jewish nationalism at their core, so this executive order embodies everything agai…

The difference between ‘loving Israel enough’ and ‘dual loyalty’

Originally published December 10, 2019

At the Israeli American Council (IAC) summit over the weekend, President Donald Trump re-opened the door for the left to attack his philo-semitic bonafides. Some might believe that in claiming American Jews “don’t love Israel enough” Trump was trafficking in the same anti-Semitic “dual loyalty” smear that Reps. Ilhan Omar, Rashida Tlaib and others have pushed. Not only is this demonstrably false, the distinction between the two is one American Jews need to understand when making political decisions in 2020. When Omar accuses Jewish lawmakers or pundits of siding with Israel, to the detriment of America, she accuses those Jews of dual loyalty. That smear has historical ramifications, as it was the excuse used for centuries in Europe and Russia to segregate the Jews into ghettos and attack them. Many countries would not allow Jews to become full citizens, when …
