The Real Trump Link in the Threats on Jews

The arrest of a Jewish American-Israeli teen for making hundreds of bomb threats against American Jewish institutions in recent months seems to put paid to the favorite explanation advanced by both American Jews and the broader American left–i.e., that Donald Trump’s election empowered right-wing anti-Semites, leading to an upsurge in anti-Semitic acts. Yet the fact remains that the number of threats did jump dramatically following Trump’s election, to a degree that seems hard to attribute to mere coincidence. Now, new disclosures by the Israeli police provide a way to square that circle. It turns out the sudden increase was, in fact, connected to Trump’s election–not because of anything Trump did or didn’t do, but because of media’s hysterical reaction to it.

  • Exactly. Finally they take a look at the most parsimonious explanation. But that’s the first thing you’re supposed to do before moving on to more esoteric theories — you eliminate the obvious. (Unless the obvious is in fact correct, which it is in this case and most cases).

    Antisemitism is either 99% a product of the left, or of their “pet” Muslims religious teachings.
    Since I’m not a leftist, and I’m not a Muslim, it’s not my problem.

    My days of agonizing over the welfare of a demographic of which 75% supports and propagates the ideal that Republicans are “Hitleresque” are over.
    I wash my hands; antisemitism is not my problem.

    By the way, the report is based on the ANTIFA hatchet-paper HAARETZ
    what is untrustworthy and don’t tuches payments (soros) the IDIOT got.
    Calling Trump an Anti Semite is Antisemitic because he alone
    freed the Jews from the leftist obamesque
    rear naked choke.

      I don’t exactly see throngs of Jews Marching in the street to denounce this report either. Maybe if that happened I’d think differently.
      No, I say that 75% of them totally agree with it.
      Either way, I’m done caring.

        i don’t get your point, they searched for him, got him, imprisoned him, made it public,
        it was not out of necessity, just the right thing to do.
        but who paid the guy?
        we will know but not thru haaretz, thru israeli investigations and they work on this.

        If you wouldn’t care you wouldn’t Lie.
        You know that Jews usually don’t demonstrate, they work.
