A fight for the soul of the Democratic Party is underway, with the far left minority coalition poised to make it the party of socialists.
Jews have been tolerated in this coalition up till now, but our presence has been contingent on our cooperation in the undoing of Israel.
Had Jews fought ferociously, as we should have, against the lies that form the basis of the anti-Israel position of the far left—for example, that Israel is “white,” colonial, expansionist, apartheid and guilty by association with American imperial power—we would have been booted from the coalition long ago.
We maintained limited rights within the coalition through weak resistance to, and sadly for many the active embrace of, every one of those lies. Jews like Greenblatt remain desperate and deluded enough to think they can earn us a place at the new power table that is forming. But there is no place for Jews there.
We failed to fight, and now the Palestinians and Islamists are displacing us.
The only thing that might stop what is happening is for Jews to mount our own campaign of resistance, both inside and outside the Democratic Party.
Unfortunately, Greenblatt reflects the state of Jewish leadership on the left.
Completely co-opted, with little if any understanding of what is happening from a Jewish point of view that isn’t diluted to meaninglessness.
