Isn’t this the America YOU chose?
As long as I can remember, there has been a common accusation of America being in the pocket of “The Jews”. From the black Muslim movement to the anti-banker complainers, to even the white conspiracy theorists, there have been ubiquitous allegations that America is controlled by “rich Jews”. It would be difficult to suggest that the Jewish community is not powerful beyond their numbers. As Jordan Peterson pointed out, they have been disproportionately positively represented in finance, the legal field, and in the sciences, to the extent that a large number of Nobel prizes have gone to Jew researchers. I am amazed at the number of Jew hating people I know who when the chips are down show up at Long Island Jewish Medical Center.
According to the Pew research center: “As a whole, Jews are a relatively high-income group. About one-in-four Jews (23%) say they have family incomes of $200,000 or more. By comparison, just 4% of U.S. adults report that level of household income. The Jew in America is not far from his Israeli brother in that Israel has an economy three to four times the size as Lebanon to the north. This economy is only a third as large as Iran further east or Saudi Arabia to the South, though those two nations are far larger and more populous. Israel’s GDP is $369 billion, Saudi Arabia’s GDP is $1.5 trillion.
American middle eastern policy has ALWAYS supported Israel. The US cooperates with the Islamic states, and fosters business relationships, but until the presidency of Barack Obama, there has barely even been public conviction of Israel or of Jews in America. This country has never chosen Muslims over Jews.
So why are Muslims immigrating here?
(I’m waiting . . . . . . . . . .)
Practicing Islam requires strict adherence to that religion’s guiding principles laid out in the Quran. Differences between Sunni, Shia, and even Wahhabis notwithstanding, their practices are universal to their faith. When a Muslim seeks to relocate why are they NOT seeking out prosperous Islamic lands? Iran is Shia. Saudi Arabia, with Mecca as the symbolic capital of Islam is majority Sunni (again, of course not forgetting Wahhabis and even Sufists).
There’s Yemen, there’s United Arab Emirates, there’s Sunni Pakistan, or if the Muslim prefers a more ‘westernized’ experience but still Islamically based, there is Turkey-Islam’s gateway to Europe. And Turkey, unlike most of Arab states, has a first world military including the tenth largest navy.
Why would a Muslim walk past all of those options, lands that practice their faith and are friendly to them. States that will not back Israel, and even counter the United States. Aren’t ALL Muslims brothers? These are your brothers who that as discussed have a high GDP and are wealthy beyond imagination from oil production? Why skip those and come to America, the land of the infadel and friend of the Jew? Why would he come to the United States, the enemy of Iran, invader of Iraq and Afghanistan, and violator of Pakistani sovereignty to kill Osama Bin Laden?
Americans will be accused of bias for looking at the hijab and gown or mandress and Kufi. To make an analogy it’s like leaving Boston to be a New York Yankee but you continue to wear the Red Sox uniform. We Americans consume alcohol, display affection in public, and sometimes do not conduct ourselves in a brotherly fashion when dealing with immigrants. We eat pork—lots of it. You do not approve of the way American women carry themselves. But you came—here.
Complaints about what we are and what we do are YOUR fault. Nothing about America is a surprise, this nation has been doing what it does since before you were born, before you immigrated here, before you converted in prison; it has never been a secret. If you support Palestine, you should have moved to Iran. Still, you chose the land you describe as the enemies of Islam and allies to the Jews you hate—and came here anyway. You chose to convert to Islam, the religion that has all but declared America its enemy.
Muslim protest of American Jews and American support of Israel is disingenuous, you knew what you were getting into and came here anyway.
