LOS ANGELES, Sept. 3, 2015 — Jewish Lives Don’t Matter.
Wait. In today’s vapid society, everything requires a Twitter hashtag. #JewishLivesDontMatter.
That was the message that 34 Senate Democrats sent to people deeply concerned about a second Holocaust. Dr. Barackevorkian ordered John Kerry to help politically liberal Jews commit assisted suicide. Desperate for these two non-Jews with no emotional connection to Judaism to love them, liberal Jews eagerly and obediently complied. Any day now paleontologists will discover that the original lemmings stem from a leftist strain of Judaism.
The merits of the deal have been debated. There are none. Iran gets up to $150 billion in exchange for promises that will be broken.
A real deal would have allowed for American inspectors to conduct random inspections any time they wanted. Instead, Iran has 24 days to hide evidence. They can even engage in self-inspections, which makes as much sense as trusting criminals to police themselves.
A legitimate deal would have demanded that four American hostages be released. They remain imprisoned as John Kerry continues to engage in perpendicular diplomacy.
A sane deal would demand that Iran cut off all funding for terrorist entities Hamas, Hezbollah and Syria before they received a single red, white and blue cent. Instead they are being given money that will be laundered faster than a bent-nosed guy at the Brooklyn fish market.
The entire Iran deal is based on two non-Jews giving their word. These are men who on multiple occasions have broken their word. If you like your doctor, you can keep your doctor. if you like your healthcare plan, you can keep your healthcare plan. Cambodia was seared into his memory even though he was never there.
The president has been caught breaking his word. Secretary Kerry has been caught breaking his word. The Iranian mullahs have been caught breaking their word. These are the people who want Jews in Israel to trust them.
Everything about this deal is a lie. There are never going to be snap-back sanctions. Adversaries of America want to do business with Iran.
Who should Jews trust? Looking at the stakeholders on both sides gives a clear example.
On one side are the Israelis. They are overwhelmingly against the Iran deal. They know what is best for their own country.
Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu is against the deal. His job is to protect his country.
The American people are overwhelmingly against the deal.
Even some Jews who have devoted their lives to liberalism have tepidly come out against this Iran deal.
The people favoring the deal include a non-Jewish president with no emotional connection to and very little understanding of Israel or Judaism.
An elitist patrician Christian Brahmin with also lacking a spiritual bond with Israel or Jews favors the deal.
The anti-Semitic left that blames Jews for everything from poisoning Palestinian children to restless leg syndrome favors the deal.
The Iran deal gives Iran billions of dollars that cannot be traced unless one trusts our federal government to trace anything. That money will be used to fund more terrorist attacks on Israel and the rest of the West.
Iran is now well on its way to a nuclear bomb. Like Saddam Hussein’s Iraq, all Iran has to do is kick out the inspectors, stall for time and keep spinning its centrifuges with impunity.
Iran will use its newfound power to murder Jews. We know this because it has publicly stated this as its deepest aspirational goal. It wants to wipe Israel off of the world map. Now it has been given the keys to start the detonator.
Liberal Jews need to ask themselves some agonizingly tough questions.
When Iran actively funds the murder of Jews and says it wants to kill more, why should it not be believed?
What in the personalities of Obama and Kerry communicates human empathy for most human lives, much less Jewish ones?
What single concession did Iran make in this process?
It may hurt the fragile psyche of liberal Jews to admit this, but they back the Iran deal because their liberalism orders them to do so. Abortion, gay marriage and climate change require that Democrats be blindly supported to avoid a Republican presidential victory. Social issues matter more than Israel.
Obama and Kerry are blindly trusting the Iranian mullahs. Liberal Jews backing the deal are blindly supporting Obama.
Meanwhile, Obama and Kerry have kicked Israel in the teeth, and the mullahs continue burning Israeli and American flags in effigy. They continue to set images of Obama and Kerry on fire while chanting “death to America.”
Obama gets his legacy item for his library, Kerry gets his Nobel Peace Prize and Iran gets to murder Jews. Everybody wins except Jews.
Then again, as Hillary Clinton would say, “What difference at this point does it make?”
The mullahs say it explicitly. Obama, Hillary and Kerry offer the sentiment implicitly. Liberal Jews corroborate it through the body language of weakness and acquiescence.
Luckily for Israelis, they are not American liberal Jews. They do care about their own survival, not just through words, but through actions. They have had to show that #IsraeliLivesMatter many times, usually through the use of hard military force and power. They may have to do so again. After all, somebody has to care if they live or die.
