Why do Some Jews Hate Trump?
by Steven Shamrak
As a Jew, and non-citizen of the United States, I have asked many times some Jews, who expressed their anti-Trump opinions personally to me by email or via FaceBook postings question: “Why do you hate Trump so much?”
So far, I haven’t gotten any logical, coherent and intelligent answers. Most of the time, it was a silence, and they did not reply at all, ending communication!
Some have tried to resurrect old ideas like “Trump is anti-Semite” or “he is a racist”. Others brought up “he is women-hating pig” – with so much hate and unjustifiable anger, so I left wondering who is really a “hating pig”! All of them were not able to support these notions with any facts or proof, and have totally ignored that these allegations were debunked long time ago – even during the election campaign, they did not work!
Trump did not force Israel to accept a bogus, ‘photo-opportunity’ Oslo Agreement, like Bill Clinton did! He did not sign the nuclear agreement with Iran, ignoring numerous strong protests and objections from Israel, and he did not deliberately humiliate Benjamin Netanyahu in Washington, and withdraw diplomatic support for Israel in the United Nations, like Obama did not long ago!
Contrarily to the common pattern of all previous presidents – ‘make promises to Jews and do nothing’, Democrats or Republicans, president Trump has been keeping his election campaign promises in regards to Israel, and it is still a work in progress!
He moved the US embassy to Jerusalem! He cancelled the dangerous Iranian nuclear agreement, as he promised, and he began defunding terrorists of Hamas and the Palestinian Authority, who have been financing killers of Jews in Israel, using American tax-payer money. He cut funding to the UN refugee organization which is financially supporting and instigating terror attacks, as well as hate education in kindergartens and schools!
There are other diplomatic progresses, still in progress, of negotiation and discussions, with Arab states and Egypt that would probably constitute as pro-Israel development. It is too early to talk about them now.
All of this has been done during just a year and a half of his presidency under relentless attacks from Democrats and ‘useful Jews’!
I am still unable to find, I really want to, the answer to the question: “Why do so many Jews in the United States still hate President Trump?
What is it? Is it self-hate; pathological need to fit-in and appease others; blind support for the Democratic Party; misguided and blind alliance with ideologies of libertarianism or socialism; ignorance or stupidity? Please, help me solve this conundrum!
FOOD for THOUGHT. by Steven Shamrak
Until the recent decision of President Trump, the US government, which is supposedly a friend of Israel, has been subsidizing the existence of fake refugees of the artificially forged people, Palestinians. Around $400M was given, not counting funds siphoned by NGOs, of the US taxpayers’ money directly to UNRWA and to the PA each year! After President Trump cut all US funding to UNRWA, but not to the PA, there is no shortage of international anti-Semites, mainly European countries, eager to fill the gap!

Former prime minister Ehud Olmert told the Palestinian media he believes only Palestinian Authority (PA) President Mahmoud Abbas is able to make the two-state solution a reality. In their joint meeting in the French capital, Abbas told Olmert he has never officially opposed to the peace initiative presented to him. “I very happy to meet President Abbas, we haven’t met for a long time,” Olmert said during the meeting.
President Bashar al-Assad blamed Israel for the downing of a Russian plane, which was accidentally hit by Syrian anti-aircraft fire during an Israeli missile strike. There were 15 Russian crew members killed in the incident. The Russian military has accused Israeli pilots of using the Russian plane as cover, but Russian president, Vladimir Putin, had struck a conciliatory tone a day earlier describing the incident as the result of “tragic accidental circumstances.” (Russian plane was shot down by Russian made missile, which Russia sold to Syria and Israel to be blame – No way! Syria fired missiles for 40 minutes after the Israeli strike, hitting the Russian plane.)
An urgent telegram about the 1973 Yom Kippur War was posted on the Israel State Archives website, which was sent by the former head of the Mossad, Zvi Zamir, warning that war was imminent and suggesting a plan to prevent it. (Out of fear of international backlash no preventive measures were taken!)
Hamas has decided to escalate the weekly “March of Return” demonstrations in order to pressure Egypt and Israel to renew ceasefire talks, which have been suspended for the past three weeks. The reason for the delay is an explicit threat made by Palestinian Authority (PA) President Mahmoud Abbas to Egypt, saying that truce at in Gaza – that includes significant efforts to ease the Israeli and Egyptian blockade – without the PA’s involvement, will result in the PA’s complete withdrawal of monthly payments transferred to the strip. (Abbas is struggling to remain relevant; Hamas knows only terror as a tool to stay relevant!)
The US has decided to freeze all bank accounts belonging to the PLO in the country as the White House ramps up pressure on the Palestinians to enter into peace talks with Israel. The Palestinian envoy to the US Husam Zomlot also said on Sunday that his permit to stay in the US has been annulled. The US administration also revoked the visas of Ambassador Husam Zomlot’s wife and two children despite their being valid until 2020.
QUOTE of the WEEK:
“The Jews are a peculiar people: things permitted to other nations are forbidden to the Jews. Other nations drive out thousands, even millions of people, and there is no refugee problem. Russia did it, Poland and Czechoslovakia did it. Turkey threw out a million Greeks and Algeria a million Frenchman. Indonesia threw out heaven knows how many Chinese and no one says a word about refugees. But in the case of Israel displaced Arabs have become eternal refugees. Everyone insists that Israel must take back every single Arab.” – Eric Hoffer, LA Times, May 26, 1968
I would say we are “gluttons for punishment”! We try to see good in everyone, even in our mortal enemies, who proved again and again that nothing will change their objective to destroy us!

MAHMOUD ABBAS (Abu Mazen) – co-founder of Fatah
Born 26 March 1935 to a wealthy family, most likely Moorish or Kurd, which moved to Tzfat (Safed) from Syria. In 1948 his family returned to their homeland, Syria, fearing Jewish reprisal for a series of brutal Arab attacks against Jews, in the summer of 1929, in the town. He graduated from the University of Damascus before going to Egypt, where he studied law. Abbas entered graduate studies at the Patrice Lumumba University in Moscow later, where he earned a PhD. The theme of his doctoral dissertation was “The Other Side: the Secret Relationship between Nazism and Zionism” and Holocaust denial. (The Soviet regime loved to disseminate this idea! At the same time the Communist state refused to acknowledge, and downplayed the fact that Jews were killed by Nazis, with eager help from local anti-Semites, as an ethnic group, and not just as Soviet citizens!)
