Brief Notes: Absolute Stupidity
There is something profoundly wrong with our engagement, as Jews, in the larger world.
That is, there is something profoundly wrong with the fact that although we represent a tiny, historically persecuted minority, it is considered "racist" or "Islamophobic" on the progressive-left to point out the fact of genocidal anti-Jewish racism within Islam.
Islam represents 1.5 billion people. If even a single percent of those people hold to radical Islam then a greater number of Muslims hold to an ideology with murderous intention toward us than the entire Jewish population world-wide.
Yet, in some circles I am considered a racist for daring to notice this problem and to articulate it as a problem.
The stupidity, given our history, of condemning a Jew for noticing genocidal intentions toward Jews couldn't be more profound.
We cannot protect ourselves from what is a very dangerous problem if "progressives" consider it immoral to even notice the problem.
The stupidity, or perhaps ideological blinkeredness, is just absolute... unfathomable, really.
