VIDEO/AUDIO: Schlussel & Adam Taxin on Crazy Faux-Rabbis v. Donald Trump @ AIPAC

By Debbie Schlussel



Islamo-pandering “Martini Rabbi” Jeffrey Salkin v. Donald Trump

My friend, Jeopardy champ Adam Taxin, and I recorded this on Friday, regarding the various far-left activists who parade as “rabbis” and use this faux title to attack Donald Trump and his speech at AIPAC, the “pro-Israel” lobby (which isn’t that pro-Israel, as I’ve noted frequently on this site). Take a listen . . .

(The audio isn’t the greatest, but that’s on you, Adam. Sounds like I’m talking into a can thousands of miles away.)

FYI, the Rolling Stone who snorted his father’s ashes (or claimed to), whose name I forgot in the audio, is the hideous Keith Richards.

Yeah, I kept reading about these rabbis, but I figured they weren’t real rabbis. Jeez.

This has importance as several primaries are coming up in states with significant Jewish populations. The rabbis and their supporters (e.g. Cruzites, Republican and Democratic Establishments, etc.) see this as part of a general campaign to derail Trump. These hack politicians probably don’t want to directly associate themselves with rank discourtesy, so, in effect, the rabbis are their surrogates.

I don’t see this in isolation.

The audio is not great, but the content is. 😉

I would think of a rabbi as a religious scholar or teacher, and of course as the leader of a synagogue. They are not supposed to be hip or socially relevant, but men of G-d. That does not mean that a rabbi is not human, or allowed to satisfy their legitimate needs and desires. It is that their first duty is to fulfill their responsibilities as clerics.

Most informative. It is all very distressing.There seems to be a double standard. I never read rabbis publicly criticizing Leftists, or the Clintons, or President Obama, or Rev. Wright.

Donald Trump’s foreign policy experience seems thin but he does have world wide business interests, including Dubai.

I think he will soon see there are some people you cannot make a deal with. Some people do not negotiate in good faith and don’t want to compromise.

Although I am disappointed that Trump is not clearly pro-Israel in his pronouncements, it is ironic that if the U.S. were actually to stay neutral with regards to Israel and the Muslims, it would be a step forward, since the U.S. has predominantly supported the Arabs and Iran over the last 65 or 70 years. The Iran treaty, funds for terrorists, holding back Israel time and time again, refusing the types of weapons and political support Israel really needs, etc.

And, as is customary among political candidates, none of them, not Trump or any of the others, has managed to comment concretely on any recent Mideast developments. In a crisis situation, Cruz will make an isolated comment, but in recent months, nothing concrete from any of them that I am aware of.

They have also all avoided concrete comments on the specific slew of anti-semitic incidents that are increasing all over the country.

It does not really seem like either Jewish or Evangenical organizations are really trying to put any pressure on politicians to change this.

Great stuff. Thanks.

I saw this on some YAHOO news page. It caught my I. It smelled funny to me. Maybe Trump could get their support if he waved an ISIS flag and screamed “death to Israel and America, the great Satan”. Do they really think their are any brownie points to be made by kissing Islamic ass? I don’t think so.

TRUMP’s BIGGEST PROBLEM and danger is that he is still clueless with regards to the nature of Islam and its followers. He looks at eastern thought through western eyeglasses psychologically mapping his own extrapolations of surface manifestations of Muslim propaganda for the west into expectations. He thinks if it makes sense to him, that the followers of Islam will behave as such. He thinks he can take experience in business dealings and map it onto success when dealing with ideologies and sociological backgrounds that he as no clue about. This is why Trump is all over the board on Middle East policy and topics of Islam in particular. This is why Trump is unable to present a clear and consistent message to the public on these issues.

It would be nice if we could figure out how to get to Trump and give him a clue.

REGARDING RABBIS, they must know more than Torah. They must also know Islam and the nature of its followers, else its 1938 all over again. Islam has a nearly 1400 year old crystal ball. It’s not like its a mystery.

The Dome of the Rock and the al-Aksa mosque need to be razed. Had our people known the nature of Islam in 1967 (after nearly 1400 years we still have not internalized the nature of Islam and its followers… shame on us), we would have exposed Islam for what it is, say by reading aloud the Qur’an, and started demolitions. Islamic presence must eventually be removed, everywhere. It is important that anything of value must be disposed of in a fashion such that there is neither gain nor profit from the effort.

No decent person can remain a follower of Islam. Islam commands that its followers must not take infidels as friends. And indeed what decent person can claim to be your friend yet remain a willing follower of a religion which has indoctrinated them since earliest childhood that they are commanded to either murder you or at very least subjugate you to the status of a dhimmi, to expect that their religion will become superior over all other religions, to practice taqqiya, tawriya, kitman and muruna in claiming to be your friend all the while knowing it is the opposite that is true. Disgusting.


Islam itself must be outlawed and eradicated.

And just because there are 1.8 billion Muslims, that does not make the problem insurmountable but rather simply a larger problem. And thus it needs to be dealt with initially in a different fashion.

The first step to dealing with Islam and its followers is to learn about it and then to educate non-Muslims as to the nature of Islam and its followers. And people must not take their education from the followers of Islam but rather from its critics. People will then step back in horror at the realization of what we have in our midst. Islam and its followers will then become marginalized, and that will be the beginning of the end for Islam and its followers.

Like Nazis and Nazism which together with Islam, its followers and the Grand Mufti of Jerusalem who all worked together so diligently to murder our people, Islam itself must be outlawed and eradicated. Islam goes even further by canonizing in their Qur’an and their own religious works the commands and examples to murder our people to the very last one.

Now, all the Germans did not need to be killed. But Nazism, its leaders, dedicated followers and the symbolic vestiges promoting its presence were eradicated. Only the places of horrors it created and the history of what it did are preserved as a reminder to humanity.

The solution for the moment is not a war of aggression against Islam but rather the education of our people and of western civilization regarding Islam. People need knowledge to be properly prepared for confrontation, which will come soon enough.

Phil Lipofsky on March 21, 2016 at 11:50 am

    But a daunting task. Over the past many years, I have been doing my best to educate family, friends, peers regarding the coming, wholly destructive nature of Islam. Until recently, I’ve been looked upon as a kook, an alarmist, overly dramatic…you get the picture.
    When I tell people under Common Core, our children, while forbidden to utter the words, “God, Jesus” and all things biblical, they are being required to recite the Shahada, extra bonus points for dressing in Muslim garb as they are duped into the first step towards conversion to Islam. “There is no god but Allah, Mohammad is his messenger” and yet during school performances of Charlie Brown, Lionus’ short quote from the bible commanded to be edited out.
    There are already towns in Michigan under complete Muslim rule instituting Sharia Law.
    Oh we are in deep, deep trouble. As I write this, Belgium’s airport has just experienced a terrorist attack. As we bring in 100’s of thousands of Muslim “refugees” every year completely clueless who these people are, we are as sheep opening wide the gates of hell.
    As so many of our politicians, and yes clergy as well, worship at the feet of “liberalism,” while God tells us to show kindness, He also gave us brains with which to think. Pure common sense should dictate to all of us, kindness begins at home and we do not sacrifice ourselves in the name of kindness, that only evil is left to prevail.

Well stated.

DS_ROCKS! on March 21, 2016 at 1:20 pm

You could also add Rabbi Jesse Olitzky of Congregation Beth El in South Orange to the list. The bottom line about these “rabbis” is that they are rabid leftists first, and whatever elements of Judaism they may believe in take a back of the bus position. It’s as simple as that.

Your tip-off is that they blame Trump for the violent protesters against him, not the violent protesters. This is ALWAYS a classic red flag that you’re dealing with leftist mentality. When a leftist hears about some Muslim terrorist blowing up people somewhere, what’s their knee-jerk response? The Muslim was only an oppressed victim and was only striking back in they only way he knew how. The people to really blame, according to the leftists, must be the people that Muslim terrorists hate. Those people must be the “haters,” according to the leftists, not the Muslim Terrorists. Same for Black Lives Matter. If they respond with violence against anyone, BLM isn’t to blame because they are only “victims” according to the leftists. The people that BLM hates must be the real “hatters” according to them. So those “haters” must be “racist” and “bigoted” and “divisive,” according to standard leftist protocol.

Ralph Adamo on March 21, 2016 at 2:01 pm

These are proud Reform “rabbis.” Nuff said.

skzion on March 21, 2016 at 6:36 pm

    ‘Nuff said? Not quite. We could add a line from one of Woody Allen’s standup comedy bits (so this has to go back many decades): “We were married by a reformed rabbi in Long Island. A very reformed rabbi. A very, very reformed rabbi. A Nazi.”

    Ralph Adamo on March 21, 2016 at 7:22 pm

      That is offensive. As much as I dislike fake Rabbis, they are stills Jews. Not Nazis. Fake Rabbis do not put Jews in Gas Chambers.

      Akiva Shapero on March 21, 2016 at 7:53 pm

        AS, “Fake Rabbis do not put Jews in Gas Chambers”? History tells us something a little different and little more complex than that. Read about the Judenräte in Eichmann in Jerusalem by Hannah Arendt. Arendt wrote: “To a Jew, this role of the Jewish leaders in the destruction of their own people is undoubtedly the darkest chapter of the whole dark story. . . In the matter of cooperation, there was no distinction between the highly assimilated Jewish communities of Central and Western Europe and the Yiddish-speaking masses of the East. In Amsterdam as in Warsaw, in Berlin as in Budapest, Jewish officials could be trusted to compile the lists of persons and of their property…” And even if these fake rabbis aren’t directly aiding the enemies of Jews and of civilization, they are indirectly aiding them. They divide and weaken the Jewish community.

        Ralph Adamo on March 22, 2016 at 1:11 am

Sad we have so many fake Rabbi’s in our midst. I am a Jew, I keep Shabbos and Kosher. And, oh BTW, I am never w/o my Ruger pistol. Every Jew, heck every law abiding citizen in America, needs to have a concealed carry permit. Get trained and be ready.Unlike the liberal commies, half my synagogue is carrying and the number is growing. Exercise your rights!

Akiva Shapero on March 21, 2016 at 7:01 pm

I’m sorry, I, I, . . .

I thought Debbie’s headline said that Donald Trump was selling Faux Rabbit at one of the stores in Trump Tower. I know PETA has a thing about no fur, but they should be happy about this one, since it’s only faux rabbit, and not the real kind. Sorry. See y’all around.

Alfredo from Puerto Rico on March 22, 2016 at 12:39 am

Ralph, you know, I just and I mean just literally figured out the Black Lives Matter movement. I’ve been anti BLM from day one because the premise didn’t make sense because All lives Matter. Then it was explained to me the other day what “They” were trying to convey, and its not coming across very well.
You, me, and most of America look at the Black Lives Matter as in “HEY, BLACK LIVES MATTER MOTHER F*****. Because inane people yell this mess and other anti-social rhetoric probably because they don’t understand it themselves. They yell this as a Black Power affirmation anti-police and as threatening as possible.
But its not or at least that wasn’t the point of it.
What they were trying to convey is “Hey officer, don’t shoot kill us, Black Lives Matter, too. Its suppose to be a plea, a cry of mercy, not a symbol of verbal aggression and angst. I never knew this again until recently, it makes more sense to me now, but their message is not being conveyed at all. It has digressed into just madness. I have a question for you, does it make sense to you, how it was explained to me? I think in a nutshell, it seems the movement was hijacked by Black Nutters, just like the Tea-Party was and everyone said it was racist? What do you think?

MrBigBrain on March 22, 2016 at 4:55 pm

    MBB, I don’t think it matters what the original motivations of BLM may have been, even if they may have merely involved improving training programs for police officers. Let’s say that was true, for argument’s sake. So what? The primary problems facing black people in America don’t directly involve training police departments. Rather, the problems lie within their own communities. Unfortunately, the mainstream media is also to blame for this misdirection campaign. You have to go to YouTube and alternative media for coverage of the reality of BLM. Here’s an example:

    Ralph Adamo on March 23, 2016 at 3:37 pm

I have now listened to Donald Trump’s speech to AIPAC three times. Without saying so, Trump shows little neutrality in describing Israel and how the United States would relate to it under his leadership. In fact, I would argue that Trump’s speech was not directed toward AIPAC at all. It was directed toward Evangelical Christians.

The likelihood of American Jews voting over 20% for a Republican in November are small. That is why these “rabbis” are of little consequence at this time. What is consequential for Trump is hanging on to his Evangelical supporters and wooing more away from Ted Cruz.

Cruz has worked hard to exploit Trump’s earlier comments on the War Against Israel. Remaining Primary Elections are crucial to Trump locking up the nomination. Therefore, regardless of whether Trump’s speech at AIPAC was sincere, he had to express a knowledge of who the good-guys and bad-guys are. This is essential to wooing the Evangelical Christian vote.

The comparison of Trump to Hitler is unfair except in one very limited respect: Trump’s campaign displays a scowl on his face.

Look at him! He rarely smiles. He wears a frown on his face in nearly all his speaking presentations (whether or not he is debating). His campaign displays America’s dis-satisfaction with “politics as usual”. Whether He says one thing or contradicts himself later, he doesn’t seem to mince words and always displays scorn toward his competition. He taps into America’s frustration and anger with the absurdity of our public policies. Policies that are driven by an elite left-leaning news media supported by huge corporations seeking regulations that limit competition and small-business opportunity. That, plus his funny-looking hair reminds many people of Hitler.

Some people have a hard time understanding why the whole “Hitler thing” gets attached to Trump. I thought I’d take a try at explaining it.

For Israel, Jews and America, Trump’s comments at the AIPAC Policy Conference will have to be sincere with the passage of time. Too many American politicians have addressed the policy conference and “made nice” to Israel only to scorn Israel in their subsequent policy actions in government.

Nancy Pelosi has addressed the Policy Conference and talked about the “unbreakable ties” etc. only to openly and publicly scorn Israel’s Prime Minister during a Congressional address.
Sen. O’Bama addressed the Conference in 2008 promising that Jerusalem will be the capital of Israel and it must never be divided only to publicly scorn home-building by Jews in Jerusalem within a month (or two) of taking office as President.

Candidates for President come and go at AIPAC Policy Conferences. It will take more than pinching one’s right index finger and thumb while emphatically declaring support for Israel for a Republican to gain real traction with Jewish-American voters. In the heat of a highly contested GOP Primary Election season, one has to look at a voting block that Trump needs desperately right now. That voting block is Evangelical Christians who find Ted Cruz appealing.

Trump’s speech was made at the AIPAC Policy Conference. However, I believe his comments were directed toward pro-Israel Evangelical Christians who are most critical to his campaign at this moment.

Campaign promises are not binding contracts. Trump’s recently stated view of the War Against Israel will not likely stand intact over time should he become our next President. In the meantime, it was nice to hear a candidate for President articulate a knowledge of who the good-guys AND the bad-guys are at an AIPAC Policy Conference.

rabid paskin did more to single handedly destroy a long established synagogue and its congregation than any virulent anti semite could ever have hoped to accomplish…..a lifetime of Torah reading would not make this disingenuous fraud a mench

harv on March 25, 2016 at 9:43 am

There is a subtle, but telling difference b/w Trump & Cruz, which should make it easy for anyone trying hard to pick b/w the 2 of them. Trump is anti-Muslim but not pro Israel. Cruz is pro Israel but not anti-Muslim.

IMO, if one is anti Muslim, the pro Israel matters less: since Islam is the underpinnings of the existential threats of not just Israel, but also us and much of the non-Muslim world, being anti Islam and then following up on that would automatically take care of the threats to Israel. If Trump were to change the political alignments and team up w/ Russia against the Mohammedans, that would be a historic paradigm shift that could cause incredible headaches for the Mohammedans, and their Euro-panderers wouldn’t be able to do much for them.

Being pro Israel but not anti-Muslim is going after the symptoms, rather than the disease. Cruz can be pro Israel all he wants – recognize Jerusalem as Israel’s capital, et al, but since he’s busy singing the praises of Cairo’s al Sisi, it doesn’t do much. And his suddenly warming up to the Bushes is troublesome, since that entire family has been in bed w/ the Muzzies since, like forever. I was a lot more supportive of Cruz when he was not the go-to guy for the Lindsay Grahams, the Bushes and the Carly Fiorinas. At this point, had Rubio Boobio been in the running, I’d have picked him over Cruz, since he doesn’t have the support of the Bushes or Graham.

Also, on Trump’s statement about being ‘neutral’ b/w Israel and ‘Palestine’ (sic), if he plans to have the 2 of them sit at a table, he has to be neutral. Yeah, I’d prefer it if he didn’t have that goal in the first place, since no negotiations w/ Muzzies are worth the paper they are written on. But even Clinton found out how impossible it was to get the Palis to agree on anything, and Trump would likely be a lot less tolerant of them than the Clintons were.

Also, as far as Trump’s Dubai deals go, his recent anti-Muslim statements have assured that that one is probably history. Already, his major partners in the Emirates are pulling their deals w/ him, and I don’t see new ones happening, since they do not sleep w/ people who openly disdain Islam.

Infidel on March 27, 2016 at 12:37 pm

Seeing Cruz on FNC, while describing his monitoring policy to Shannon Breeme, Cruz totally lost me when he repeated the garbage about ‘Islamism’ and how it’s different from Islam.

From this point onwards, I’m solidly behind Trump!!!
