Jewish Boomerang

Recent Local elections in Britain proves that the Brits are strong people, not easily deterred by political terrorism.  Despite the relentless campaign against the Labour Party and the vicious slander of Corbyn and his supporters, the Party didn’t lose power.

Atzmon said that a lot of people are making a false dichotomy between Jews and Zionism, and explained that there are three categories in the Jewish world, there are Jews the people, Judaism the religion, and Jewishness the ideology and the culture.

He pointed that a lot of Jews don’t follow Judaism, they do not go to Synagogue, yet they are identified politically and culturally as Jews.

The Fading Holocaust 

The Russians, the Vietnamese and the Palestinians do not constantly measure  Americans’  acknowledgment  of their suffering. They do not poll Americans’ approval rate of their holocausts on a weekly basis so the next question is why Jewish institutions feel the need to do so.
