Elder of Ziyon Weekly Column

The Elder was kind enough to publish my latest Sunday column entitled, simply, Betrayal.

Here is a snippet:
The progressive-left, and the grassroots / netroots of the Democratic Party, has betrayed its Jewish constituency through its acceptance of anti-Semitic anti-Zionism, and the BDS movement, as part of its larger coalition.

This betrayal is a symptom of the undermining of progressive-left values due to the ascendancy of the multicultural ideal over that of universal human rights within the heart of the western progressive movement and of the Democratic Party in the United States and the West, more generally.

The undermining of universal human rights as a core value within the progressive movement led also to the betrayal of women, the betrayal of Gay people, and the betrayal of Christians throughout Islamic regions of dominance, particularly in the Middle East and Africa, but also in Europe.
This is, of course, my central thesis and one that I need to continue to flesh out.

In any case, many thanks to the Elder of Ziyon and I hope that you guys will go over there and read the rest.
