As I’ve repeatedly noted on this site and elsewhere, despite the fact that Jews helped the Black civil rights movement more than anyone else–some of them even giving their lives–Blacks continue to be the most anti-Semitic group in America. Whereas anti-Semitism among all other ethnic groups (except Arabs and Muslims) has gone down over the decades, it hasn’t in Black America. And in every ethnic group (except Arabs and Muslims), as socio-economic (income and education) status rises, anti-Semitism goes down . . . except among Blacks. The Jacksons and Sharptons and Farrakhans–the blatant anti-Semites–are revered in Black America.
So, it is in the backdrop of all of this information that I grimace at yet another stupid Jewish donation of money to help enable more Black anti-Semites.
The Jewish Funds for Justice (hint: anything Jewish with the word “Justice” in it is always far-left and doesn’t actually stand for Justice, but Suicide) has a new campaign, the “8th Degree” campaign named for Maimonides’ term for the highest form of charity, which he described as making loans to someone in need to help themselves (as in start a biz or otherwise become self-sufficient). But Rabbi Moses Maimonides was talking about loans to other Jews, not those who hate the Jews.
Starting Friday, the charity will make micro-loans of $5,000 to $15,000 to New Orleans victims of Hurricane Katrina to help their businesses recover and to start new businesses. Most of the recipients will, no doubt, be Black. And most of them will, no doubt, be the same Farrakhan, Jackson, and Sharpton supporters who have no problem with the Nation of Islam and anti-Semitism. In poll after poll, the majority of Black Americans are anti-Semitic. Period.
And the funds will be distributed through a New Orleans credit union, so even the word Jewish won’t be impressed on these likely anti-Semites’ minds when they cash their checks. Not that that would make a difference, since Michael Schwerner’s and Andrew Goodman’s deaths marching for Black civil rights in Mississippi didn’t make a dent.
Leave it to liberal Jews to spend money on funding and enabling their enemies. The Jewish Funds for Justice a/k/a Suicide is a far-left group, and its leaders are–surprise!–backing Barack Hussein Obama. Jewish Funds for Justice founder Mik Moore is on a leave of absence to campaign for Obama and help combat the truth of Obama’s anti-Semitism and Muslim past.
And don’t look for Black anti-Semitism–including among New Orleans recipients of this Jewish largesse–to dissipate anytime soon.
What’s that rustling sound I hear? The sound of Maimonides’ bones revolving in his coffin. It’s quite clear that Maimonides–who tragically had to advise the Jews of Yemen on the permissiveness of of forced conversion to Islam to save their lives during the Muslim domination of Andalusian Spain, at the same time that he had to serve as an advisor to the Muslim Spanish King–wasn’t thinking of this kind of “charity” when he spoke of the highest form of charity.
Maimonides didn’t believe in suicide the way the Jewish Funds for Suicide, er . . . “Justice”, does
