My Liberal Jew Brethren

David Lawrence
Written by David Lawrence

A Typical Long Island Jew


I’m walking down the street with my oldest friend who pretends that he is Republican but always speaks against Trump.


I try to get him to stop but he drones on like a dull Democrat.  Not that he is dull but a Democrat is dull by definition in that he can’t see beyond his bigoted viewpoints.


My friend criticizes our defending the chemically decimated in the Assad attacks in Syria.


I tell him he is a typical Long Island Jew.  I suggest he might have agreed with FDR when he refused to give port to a boat full of Jews and sent them back to Nazi Germany.


I remind him that ninety-five per cent of the Jews sided with anti-Semitic Obama when he speechified in Cairo in favor of the Moslems and hung out with Wright and Farrakhan.


Trump’s family is half Jewish and he recognized Jerusalem as the capital of Jerusalem. Yet idiots think he is anti-Jewish.


I do not know why  Jews hate themselves but they always feel they will go to heaven if they side with their enemies.


I am so disappointed with my liberal brethren that I would leave Judaism if I didn’t feel that my religion needed a few, intelligent, self-loving Jews.  I will remain a Jw until my people cut the rug out from us.
