Never Trumper does not like his new anti-Semitic friends

You know a cease-fire is a bad idea when Roger Waters of Pink Floyd, a noted anti-Semite, tweets, "Hey Gaza, my heart is with you. My heart goes out to you all. I bleed for you. Let’s put an end to this. Cease-fire, now!"

Too bad.

As they say, don't want none, don't start none.

Jonah Goldberg understands this. But the neocon who turned his back on conservatism to spite Donald John Trump has a problem. Goldberg's new friends on the left hate Jews. Duh.

He doesn't.

He wrote, "You could say that Hamas launched another war against Israel earlier this month. But that would miss the crucial point that Hamas is always at war with Israel. Its stated public aim is the destruction of the state of Israel and the murder or expulsion of its Jewish inhabitants. It just sometimes holds off shooting for a while. Regardless, it started this latest conflict (and all the while, Israel has never started a war, though it has finished quite a few).

"Over the last two weeks, Hamas launched some 4,000 rockets at Israel. Most of them have been intercepted by Israel’s Iron Dome system, and a few have malfunctioned and fallen on Palestinians within Gaza. Israel has launched heavy airstrikes at lawful military targets—such as rocket stockpiles, weapons caches, and Hamas leaders. When there’s a reasonable expectation that doing so will kill civilians, the IDF drops leaflets or calls occupants of buildings to warn them. As David French—who served as a military lawyer in Iraq—notes, this is not only consistent with the laws of war, it’s a much higher standard. That’s not what the U.S. did in Iraq, and America’s practices are far more enlightened than Russia’s, China’s, Saudi Arabia’s, et al. Maybe we fall short of Canada, I don’t know. But you get the point."

It is funny how that works.

Oh, I do not disagree with Goldberg. His argument is mine.

But Goldberg made his bed. While he decries what he calls Systemic Anti-Semitism, I wonder where he was during the 4 years that Donald John Trump was president. No president since Harry Truman was as supportive of Israel. Not since Carter got Egypt to make peace with Israel has any American president done as much diplomatically. The Abraham Accords are an underpublicized game-changer in the Middle East.

A little recognition of President Trump's achievement would have gained Goldberg some credibility. But he is a stubborn child carrying into its 6th year some nonsense grievance against Donald Trump.

And so, Goldberg is stuck with AOC, Roger Waters, and a host of other anti-Trumpers who are also anti-Semitic.

He closed his column, "And if you always start with assumption that the Israelis are wrong, or if you always end with that conclusion regardless of the facts, you may not be anti-Semitic, but you’re on the side of structural anti-Semitism."

The same applies to assuming Donald Trump is always wrong. Goldberg cheered Biden's win, which places him right next to AOC in the bed of systemic anti-Semitism. That is how it works.

***

A cease-fire may be near. Via Lucianne Goldberg, we learn that the Jerusalem Post reported, "Israel has agreed to an Egyptian-brokered ceasefire with Hamas and Islamic Jihad in the Gaza Strip, Al Jazeera reported on Thursday evening. The news channel said that Israeli officials have updated the Egyptian mediator brokering the negotiations that it agrees to end its military operation.

"Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu is scheduled to convene the security cabinet at 7 p.m. on Thursday to discuss the terms for a cease-fire."

The cease-fire should be on Israel's terms because when you start a war, the other guy determines when it ends. Ask Hitler how that works. Hirohito, too.

The left wants Israel to stop killing terrorists. They cite the deaths of children, most of whom died at the hands of Hamas rockets.

Yoni Michanie reported, "Of the thousands of rockets fired at Israeli cities, 15% have misfired and fallen inside of Gaza, according to the IDF."

The misfires are deliberate. Hamas wants the collateral damage because Hamas cares more about ending Israel than it does helping Palestinians.

The anti-Israel wing of the Biden administration is in control now, and they had Biden call for a cease-fire. He is Mr. Irrelevant

Hamas may not understand that.

Hamas-Shielding AP said, "Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu vowed Wednesday to press ahead with a fierce military offensive in the Gaza Strip, pushing back against calls from the United States to wind down the operation that has left hundreds dead.

"Netanyahu’s tough comments marked the first public rift between the two close allies since the fighting began last week and could complicate international efforts to reach a cease-fire. His pushback also plunges the pair into a difficult early test of the U.S.-Israel relationship.

"Israel continued to pound Hamas targets in Gaza with airstrikes, while Palestinian militants bombarded Israel with rocket fire throughout the day. In another sign of potential escalation, militants in Lebanon fired a rocket barrage into northern Israel.

"After a visit to military headquarters, Netanyahu said he appreciated 'the support of the American president,' but he said Israel would push ahead to return 'calm and security' to Israeli citizens."

Ah, Hamas-Shielding AP.

Its CEO protested long and loud when Israel blew up the building that housed AP offices and the Hamas military, but it sees no reason for Israel to be upset by 4,070 rockets fired by Hamas.

Cease-fire means Israel surrenders.

Republican Senator Todd Young of Indiana learned this the hard way. He signed onto a Democrat call for a surrender.

Since then, a Young spokesman told Jewish Insider, "Senator Young shares his colleagues’ concerns about a premature cease-fire or one that occurs on Hamas’ terms.

"Hamas’ infrastructure and tunnel network in Gaza is far deeper and more sophisticated than many previously understood… As such, it is clear that Israel needs more time to deal with the threat it is facing. The only way to create an enduring cease-fire is to deal with the threat they are facing and reestablish deterrence by taking out Hamas’ terror infrastructure."

I would cease fire when the last Hamas terrorist is room temperature.

But I live on the other side of the world.

All Americans do.

But for all I know or care, Jonah Goldberg may live on the dark side of the moon with Roger Waters. One thing I learned from Mom is not to carry a grudge. At some point, you have to accept the reality that you are not as important as you believe you are.

Move on.

Those who don't wind up stuck with AOC and the rest.

    When Jonah Goldberg writes something, I turn the page.

    If Todd Young was my senator, I’d turn my back.

    1. The more Roger forced his way into the spotlight with Floyd, the worse they got. By The Final Cut they were UNLISTENABLE. DSOTM is BY FAR their best album. The Wall halfway sucks. Springsteen succumbed to it too: You start believing your own bullshite.

    2. Israel should start their own version of Hamas so they could keep fighting during the truce like Palestine does.

  2. ""Over the last two weeks, Hamas launched some 4,000 rockets at Israel. Most of them have been intercepted by Israel’s Iron Dome system, and a few have malfunctioned and fallen on Palestinians within Gaza. "

    A few? 1 in 5, 20%, meaning most of the civilians killed were probably at the hands of Hamas, since they indiscriminately fire them, and fire them from civilian locations.

  3. For all of Goldberg’s “Liberal Fascism” BS bona fides, he decided to “feed the alligator” hoping it would eat him last (to paraphrase Churchill). He, like the other outsmarted intellectuals, figured that he and his would survive. Except he didn’t count on the Internet accelerating everything. Now he will be hunted by the Left and shunned by the Right, exactly in the Hell he made for himself. Enjoy, Jonah!

  6. “A little recognition of President Trump's achievement would have gained [Jonah] Goldberg some credibility. But he is a stubborn CHILD carrying into its 6th year some nonsense grievance against Donald Trump.”

    “[C]hild” is not the appropriate noun to use to describe Jonah’s conduct these past 6 years. “Stubborn” is an excellent adjective in this instance; but “child” is misused as the noun in this sentence. A total misfire.

    I understand Don has and should continue to ensure he maintains a reputation for exercising prudence, restraint, and excellent judgment in his use of the English language.

    However, in this instance I fear in an effort to be overly diplomatic, Don unfairly insulted and slimed “children” by associating them with Jonah’s conduct these last 6 years. The vast majority of children I have encountered and been familiar with over my life have gown and matured over the years; which cannot be said in the case of Jonah Goldberg.

    Search your heart and soul Don. See if there is a way to make amends for the vicious insult you launched in this column against the defenseless children of this world.

    While I know this is not my strength; at the risk of being presumptuous and wordy, in the name of accuracy, please consider replacing “stubborn child” in the above sentence with “deranged obsessive scorned lover.”

  10. Sounds like Waters realizes a fight between Arabs and Israelis means the Israelis win.

    France did that in 1940. Churchill did not.

  14. Jonah Goldberg is a "Self Loathing Jew" who worships NWO, Environmentalism, Green Slime Programs, and he has both abandoned and lost his belief system just to be part of the "Ruling Cl-ASS". Wanting to be accepted by those who hate and despise you is the same mistake my Jewish brethren did in Germany pre WWII. If you don't learn from history you will be condemned to repeat history. Does anyone see any parallels here?

  15. Jonah Goldberg and his fellow self-anointed intellectual conservatives Bill Kristol, George Will, et al, are in bed with Israel hating anti-Semites because they betrayed their conservative principles, ideals, and values because like viscerally hate Pres Donald J. Trump. That's the putrid stench of ruling class elitism, the hallmark of DC Bush-Cheney Viche French RINOrat traitors, who ally with Communist Democrats against their own voting base constituency.

    With GOP Conservative Republicans like them, who needs anti-Semite anti-Israel anti-American anti-Christian Communist Democrats, who cannot and refuse to accept that truth.
