Daily Wire: On Monday, Senator Chuck Schumer (D-NY) threatened to cut off security assistance to Israel under Senate Bill 1 unless Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell begins to push the budget bills necessary for a government re-opening.
The bill itself allows state and local governments to stop doing business with companies that boycott Israel, in much the same way state and local governments have authority to stop doing business with companies that engage in racial discrimination. more …
Opinion: Marco Rubio cut right to the chase:
“The shutdown is not the reason Senate Democrats don’t want to move to Middle East Security Bill. A huge argument broke out at Senate Dem meeting last week over BDS. A significant # of Senate Democrats now support
#BDS & Dem leaders want to avoid a floor vote that reveals that.”
BDS: Boycott, Divest and Sanction
The BDS movement contradicts itself in theory and in practice. Its website reads: “BDS is an inclusive, anti-racist human rights movement that is opposed on principle to all forms of discrimination, including anti-Semitism and Islamophobia.”
BDS stated goals:
Ending the Occupation – Israel’s victorious Six Day War of 1967 provided the nation with land previously mandated to it by the 1917 Balfour Declaration. From 1917 to 1947, Britain repeatedly made concessions to the Arabs handing them control of the West Bank (Temple Mount), the Sinai, the Gaza Strip and the Golan Heights.
In the Six Day War of 1967, Israel regained these natural God-made buffers which protect the Jewish state from annihilation. Since then, the UN has demanded that Israel give them back, i.e. “the 1967 borders”.
In exchange for peace that never came, Israel gave back control of the Temple Mount, the Sinai, and the Gaza Strip but refuses to hand over the Golan, the most strategic buffer.
Equality for non-Jews and Jews – A total decolonization (de-Zionization) of the Israeli state erasing its Jewish identity.
Right of Return – Refers to the claims of first-generation Jordanian refugees and their descendants to recover the property they or their ancestors left before the 1948 Arab-Israeli War. These are the same refugees who turned down a two-state solution in 1947, chose war instead, and now want 13-15 million Arabs to return and overwhelm the Jewish state.
Anti-Semitism is on the rise in much the same way as just before World War II. Similar to the 1940’s, people are so used to it that it gets pushed aside for the “cause” of the day: Same-sex rights, Transgenderism, Islamic migration, illegal immigrants, Palestinian equality … you get the picture.
If there were just one sign to prove the end of the age and rise of the final government is near, growing anti-Semitism would be it.
“How awful that day will be!
No other will be like it.
It will be a time of trouble for Jacob,
but he will be saved out of it” Jeremiah 30:7.
