I wonder how it feels to be so disingenuous and such a phony that you go after Donald Trump for posting David's star on Twitter, but you want to abolish the only safe haven for Jews to go to (Israel) even though the are the victims of more religious hate crimes than any other religion in the world. I'm looking at you, the American left.

"The Collectivist experiment is thoroughly suited (in appearance at least) to the Capitalist society which it proposes to replace. It works with the existing machinery of Capitalism, talks and thinks in the existing terms of Capitalism, appeals to just those appetites which Capitalism has aroused, and ridicules as fantastic and unheard-of just those things in society the memory of which Capitalism has killed among men wherever the blight of it has spread."
- Hilaire Belloc -

This Star of David thing is entirely ridiculous and I doubt any Jews are really falling for it (though most wont for Trump anyway). But to be fair to Hillary, she is very Pro-Israel, and she didn't sway an inch from that position during one particular debate with Sanders - and he did his best to equivocate and avoid the crux of issue in general.

The far left is clearly very anti-Israel, but Hillary isn't in that camp at all - and while I do question how genuine she is on some of her stances (and how trustworthy she is in general), this is one issue she's been very consistent on.

I know you didn't bring up Hillary (and instead the left - which I do agree with), but this is a Trump versus Hillary thing in general, and both are very clearly Pro-Israel.

In any case, you are right to point out how ridiculous this Star of David thing is, because it absolutely is ridiculous.

That's an insane and broad generalization to make. Out of the millions of people that are in the American left, I'd say about 10 of them want to "abolish Israel".

The more interesting point is that Donald relented to PC pressure and changed the ad. Wonder why he relented this time? Hummmmm.

You're making things black and white. They have a right to defend themselves, but there's an issue when Israeli military is found to have used 'reckless' force in live ammunition on Palestinian children *repeatedly*. They have to clean up their act as well in order for any peace in the area.

Maybe because he doesn't need to add anti-Semite to the mix? It's smart of his to do so, as fighting PC culture is one thing, giving people more reasons to call you racist ( which certainly works in elections) is another.

I hear a lot of people saying "Israel is UNDER ATTACK by the anti-semitic left!" but in truth Israel is almost a litmus test for American politicians. Even Democrat politicians don't dare levy harsh criticism towards Israel unless they want to be branded as radicals.

In fact, even the FREAKING MEDIA (which might as well coalesce under the name "Pravda USA") isn't particularly harsh towards Israel.

This may be a trick. Trump puts out a tweet that may appear anti-semetic but really is not.
Hillary is not Jewish. The theme of the message is that so many people have given her so much money, It might appear that she owes these people a favor, or she has been bought and paid for. There is a six pointed star over a pile of pile of cash, which may or may not suggest that this money was given to her by Jews.
N.B. A solid six pointed red star is not the symbol of Judaism. It is not the star of David. Dave's star is made from 2 triangles. Although a solid six pointed star is similar to Dave's star, That solid star has more similarity to the six pointed sheriff's badges.
Most of the people who work in the news industry are bleeding heart liberals.
So if they accuse Trump of being anti-semetic and offer that tweet as their evidence, this suggests that the news people are giving their audience propaganda that they think will get people to vote 4
their girl.

The damage is already done. It is either a sign of weakness or he is unwilling to piss off evangelicals or other radical Christians who get real testy when dealing with a major player to their prophesy.

You forgot the fact that Trump's team lifted it from a known anti Semite. Trump may not be anti Semite, but his staff are not the sharpest pencils in the box.

Name on regular contributor here, on the "American Left" who wants to abolish Israel.

I think you're confusing the view that "Israel actions and policies with regards to the Palestinians, the Arab world, and the occupied territories are not befitting of a modern, democratic western nation; and while their actions are not as horrific is those that oppose them, and with full appreciation as to what is happening with it's citizens, are not always moral and are serving to inflame the geo-political situation rather than mitigate it" with "abolish Israel".

It's an easy mistake, I guess.

This Star of David thing is entirely ridiculous and I doubt any Jews are really falling for it (though most wont for Trump anyway). But to be fair to Hillary, she is very Pro-Israel, and she didn't sway an inch from that position during one particular debate with Sanders - and he did his best to equivocate and avoid the crux of issue in general.

The far left is clearly very anti-Israel, but Hillary isn't in that camp at all - and while I do question how genuine she is on some of her stances (and how trustworthy she is in general), this is one issue she's been very consistent on.

I know you didn't bring up Hillary (and instead the left - which I do agree with), but this is a Trump versus Hillary thing in general, and both are very clearly Pro-Israel.

In any case, you are right to point out how ridiculous this Star of David thing is, because it absolutely is ridiculous.

Agree on all points.

I find it fascinating that Liberals make fun of Trump's ignorance on certain parts of Christianity, yet think he correlated a deep meaninged signifigance to the Israeli star of David...

The more interesting point is that Donald relented to PC pressure and changed the ad. Wonder why he relented this time? Hummmmm.

Maybe because he doesn't need to add anti-Semite to the mix? It's smart of his to do so, as fighting PC culture is one thing, giving people more reasons to call you racist ( which certainly works in elections) is another.

The damage is already done. It is either a sign of weakness or he is unwilling to piss off evangelicals or other radical Christians who get real testy when dealing with a major player to their prophesy.

Evangelicals are a large part of the Republican voter base, so why would he try to anger them?

I thought he was against political correctness. You tell me why he would appease his evangelical base.

What? Just what?

The Donald Trump star thing was an issue because of its context. If, as he wants to say now, he has no idea what the star was, well, then he is a idiot. "It could have been a sheriffs star". Really, under what context does that make sense? Trump, just for once, be honest about your crap!

As to the left and Israel, disagreeing with policy's on settlements has nothing to do with wanting Israel to be destroyed.

Nothing about this post is anything other than bloating.

"You forgot the fact that Trump's team lifted it from a known anti Semite. Trump may not be anti Semite, but his staff are not the sharpest pencils in the box."

That is the trick, the picture looks like a picture posted by an anti-semite.
Is it wrong to associate Jews with money?. Do Jews feel offended if someone associates them with money?
