**** SCROLL DOWN FOR UPDATE ****
The bending over for Islam and the Islamic terrorist Tsarnaev Brothers is getting more ridiculous by the minute, and now absurd,anti-Semitic comparisons of them to the Irish and the Jews have entered the mix. A Pulitzer-Prize winning columnist now says that America’s Irish and Jews were just like Boston Marathon Islamic terrorists Tamerlan and Dzhokhar Tsarnaev.
WSJ’s Bret Stephens: Who Needs Anti-Semites When We Got Bret Stephens to Compare Jews to the Boston Marathon Islamic Terrorists
On Sunday, Bret Stephens, a Wall Street Journal columnist and former Jerusalem Post Editor-in-Chief, appeared on plagiarist Muslim Fareed Zakaria’s little watched “GPS/The Global Public Square” on CNN, where he is a regular panelist. Stephens, in making a ridiculous attempt to gain admission into the not-so-exclusive “Co-Exist” bumper sticker club, decided to engage in anti-Semitism, by comparing America’s Irish and Jewish populations to Islamic terrorists and the extremist Islam that dominates American Muslims. He said that Jews in America in the 1920s and ’30s were mostly Communist radicals (a damned lie, if there ever was one) and that they all moderated, so, therefore, Muslims will, too. Incredibly, this schmuck was just awarded a Pulitzer Prize. On the other hand, that’s the kinda stuff the Pulitzer Committee loves, so it’s not so incredible after all. And did I mention that this guy, Stephens, makes a huge chunka money on the Jewish lecture circuit?
From the show’s transcript:
The story is what happens particularly to second-generation Muslims who don’t feel an identity quite with the home country or with their adopted land. And that’s where radicalization tends to take place. That’s where we need to devote some real — some real new thinking to this phenomenon. . . . The assimilation model in the United States works marvelously compared to the way it works in say, let’s face it, France or Germany or Great Britain. And if you look back in history, the Irish, the Jews, all kinds of communities who came to this country faced similar kinds of problems. And by the way, each of them had moments of radicalization. I mean, there was a large contingent of Jewish Americans in the 1920s and 30s who became hard- line Communists. And it was a real problem.
The truth is that all that said and done, you find a pattern where Americans are extraordinarily tolerant and very sensitive to the fact that the acts of a handful of people does not suggest something about the entire community. Arab Americans, Muslim Americans are better assimilated in the United States than in nearly any other country in the world. It’s something actually we should take a great deal of pride in — more of it.
HUH? How many Jews in America flew planes into buildings and murdered 3,000 Americans? How many of ’em set off explosions at marathons? How many of em tried to blow up planes with their shoes and underwear? How many Jews tried to blow up Times Square? How many of ’em shot up a US Army base? And don’t bring up the Rosenbergs. Most Jewish-Americans were appalled by them and didn’t support their actions. There is no Jewish equivalent, nor has there ever been, to Hezbollah, an Islamic terrorist group which murders hundreds of Americans and which is supported by the majority of American Muslims, who won’t condemn Hezbollah terrorism. Add to that the fact that the Pew poll of American Muslims shows that younger Muslims in America are far more extreme than even their parents, that they support Islamic terrorism against Americans on U.S. soil in large percentages. They have not assimilated or moderated. They’ve become worse. Nice try, Bret, but no cigar.
My family members who came here in the late 1800s and early 1900s were never Communists. Like most Jews, they were always patriots and they proudly served America in World War II. My great-uncle Gen. Maurice J. Schlussel, MD, a career Army man and the Army’s chief medical officer for the South Pacific after the bombing of Pearl Harbor during World War II, is turning over in his grave at Bret Stephens’ outrageous defamation of his life here in America, after leaving anti-Semitic Poland.
American Muslims Assimilated? Hilarious. This guy, Stephens, is delusional. Obviously, this moron hasn’t been to Dearbornistan, Hamtramckstan, Minnesomalia (er . . . Minnesota), etc., etc., ad nauseam. Nidal Malik Hasan was “assimilated”? The Muslims here are no different, no more assimilated than the Muslims in any other Western country. They are no less extreme, no less likely to engage in Islamic terrorism or support it, and no less likely to blow up marathons, trains, planes, buildings, and Times Square. No less likely to shoot up military bases and recruiting centers. And so on. They are a virus infesting, quickly growing, and metastasizing in a willing host here, just as they are in France, Germany, Great Britain, Scandinavia, and everywhere else.
While it is true that some Irish-Americans were inexcusably helping, supporting, and financing the terrorist Irish Republican Army (which trained with Islamic terrorists, including the P.L.O.), that was a small number, and they didn’t engage in any way in blowing up and/or mass murdering Americans. Neither did the smaller percentage of Jews who were Communists. And the Jews who were Communists were NOT religious Jews. They had left Judaism. You cannot say that about the Muslims, who are usually extremists in their hate no matter what (even, frequently, the marginal percentage that are secular) and who become more extreme the more religious they become. That Bret Stephens doesn’t get this shows his utter ignorance and self-hatred as a Jew.
This same ahole has written not just one–but two–recent columns on Jonathan Pollard spying for Israel and how he should rot in prison. He also repeatedly Islamo-panders in his columns, sucking up to extremist Iranian imams as “democrats” and so on. As I noted on this site, Stephens wrote that Iranian-backed, Shi’ite, Hezbollah-supporting Iraqis “embrace” democracy more than we Westerners do. And when it came to Zakaria’s blatant plagiarism, Stephens spent an entire column excusing that with the justification that, hey, he has me on his show and lets me talk.
In any event if you are an Irish- or Jewish-American, Bret Stephens thinks your people were just like the Muslim Tsarnaev Bros. Will Jewish groups continue to blindly pay this guy the big bucks to speak at their events? Sadly, yes, as predictable as death and taxes.
Now I know why the Jewish Stephens married a non-Jewish chick and had kids with her. He hates the nominal religion of the person he sees in the mirror. And he’ll do whatever he can to defame the people of that religion, even comparing them with Islamic terrorist mass murderers.

My ancestors were not communists. They fought in every war from The war between the States to Vietnam. They wanted to assimilate and they loved America. They did not try to blow up innocent Americans.
You are nothing but an anti-Semitic scumbag.

Either you are extremely ignorant to refer to jews and communism, or you are not a proud Jew or American.
In either case, to compare the Irish/Jewish immigrant experience to Muslims is to show a lack of understanding of all parties and to the times we live in.
