A series of fortunately nonZionist Tweets

These are dedicated to Tzvi Fishman. May he blessed with a complete recovery, quickly and in our days

Some highlights of this mornings Tweet-a-rama:

After someone averred that my great-grandkids would be OJ or in America not both, I replied with only a hint of hyperbole:

Your great grand-kids will be in America or charedi or choking on the radiation of an Iranian nuke. 

Harsh? Perhaps, but I wish to explode the Zionist theory that the lessons of history and the rules of human nature are suspended in Israel.  America isn't the only place where bad things can happen. America isn't the only place where my descendants might be in danger.

My subsequent Tweets further developed the point:

If I have to worry about assimilation, why don't Israelis have to worry about 1) Another King Menashe* 2)  Macabees murdering their kids**  3) Charedim tossing out their kids  4) Iranians murdering their kids 5) their kids assimilating (Israelis intermarry, they also yored)

* King Menashe is judged by the author of Kings to be one of the worst of our monarchs. He built alters to pagan gods and ruthlessly executed his opponents. Yet he was a Jew who ruled a Jewish state. Where is the guarantee that such a Jew won't one day take control of the new Jewish state?  

** The Macabees are remembered for Chanuka, of course, and for fighting with Hellenized Jews, but what's forgotten is that they also persecuted honest, sincere Jews who worshiped God as best they knew how, according to the traditions of their own fathers, but in a manner that the Macabbes found incorrect. Is there some guarantee that such a thing won't occur again in Israel? 

Zionists are adept at forecasting calamities for the diaspora but remain blind to the calamities that threaten them in Israel. A familiar Zionist scare tactic, for instance,  is to claim that its only a matter of time before America grows tired of the Jews and tosses us out. Well, isn't it possibnle that one day in the future, a Charedi monarchy might toss my descendants out of Israel on the grounds that they aren't Jewish enough. You're scoffing, I am sure, but the Macabees did just that. If you're going to worry me about future Nazis why can't I worry you about future Macabees? Or as I told Twitter:

[How is it that the] US must worry about a new Hitler, but Israelis don't have to worry about monsters taking over their government?

Take a moment and think about this. Zionists always tell us "it could happen here." Maybe. But what prevents "it" from happening there? If you can conceive of a crazed racist winning an American election and compelling like-minded citizens to slaughter or expel Jews, why can't you conceive of a crazed racist winning an Israeli election and compelling like-minded citizens to slaughter or expel those he considers to be the wrong kind of Jews? Again, I'll remind you this has happened before. What makes you certain it can't happen again?

If Americans can elect a new Hitler, so can Israelis. If monsters from the  past can take over America, monsters from the past can take over Israel

Or as my friend Chaim Shapiro correctly points out, the tide of history doesn't flow in just one way. he wrote:

Who says there can't be a great secular awakening in Israel? A reshuffling of the deck? 

Absolutely true. This, too, has happened before. Following years of Catholic stupidity and oppression Europe rebelled against its Catholic masters with a great secular push the culminated in the Paris Commune. Is a Jerusalem Commune really so impossible to imagine? For centuries Paris was a great Catholic city, home to great Catholic thinkers, and a great Catholic university yet on 24 May 1871 the commune murdered the Catholic archbishop of Paris. Why do we think that such things happen only to nonJews?

And when we speak of dangers we don't only mean spiritual dangers of course. If all the sheep are kept in one pen, the wolf has less work to do. Or as I put it on Twitter:

...and it's easier for a nuke to wipe us out if we all live together.One nuke can't wipe out all the Jews, if we're in ten different places

Father Jacob understod the sense in keeping more than one camp. Why are we wiser than he was?
