Automatic TRANSCRIPT

In the great American. You know, many Democrats, especially a cost Cortes coming in congresswoman from New York City is made the comparison that somehow Jews fleeing Nazi Germany are kind of the same as migrants coming out of Central America coming into trying to commend you America and many Democrats have compared the Republican party to the Nazis and Trump to Hitler. Joining us now from live from Shiloh Israel's a former mayor of Shiloh, David Rubin. Also, author of the book Trump in the Jews David Ruben from Shiloh, Israel, welcome to the Bill Cunningham show and David Ruben. How are you? I'm doing just great good to be with the Bill. Good to have you with me. Again. How do you react is in Israel ju to the comparison that what's happening on our southern border with the migrants being gassed, which by the way, happened much more under the Obama administration than under Trump or the migrant children are putting cages which happened much more under Obama than it did with Trump, but just in general is like a real Israeli Jew. How do you react to the comparisons in America? That you see on CNN that Trump was like Hitler Republicans are like Nazis, and what's happening on the southern border is similar to what Jews went through in Europe. Well, I think we have to stop all all of this ridiculous name calling. You know, the the reason why I wrote my most recent book something that Jews is because I think we have to put an end to this name calling the name calling that not only is is unwarranted. It's totally unjust fun. Totally not true. You know, if we're talking about the caravan migrants. So we're talking about President Trump, but we're talking about huge families fleeing Nazi Germany, let let's let's talk about the facts. Let's let's stop the the dogma and one thing that the follow does very well as dogma. So you have this this this congresswoman this new congress woman. Also, congress girl Alexandria Cossio Cortes who. Congress girl. But, but I'm I'm very serious because the fact is that c ignorant reminds me of a President Reagan's during the debate. When when he said, he's not gonna let age be be a factor in this campaign. I'm I'm not going to talk about my my opponent. My opponent's inexperience ignorance. The fact is that our custody of Cortes symbolizes, the far less, and and they're they're ignorance the blind radical less dogma of saying that caravan migrants, so similar to Jewish families fleeing Nazi Germany. Okay. Let's examine it from the facts. Terrible migrants are coming more mostly mostly young men and they're coming coming north traveling to to into trying to get into the United States illegally. And because they because they wanna get jobs. No evidence at all of any kind of persecution. Okay. Now, you compare the far less compares to Jewish families fleeing Nazi Germany. Well, there was never a question. Jews who who who are fleeing Nazi Germany who were trying to get into whatever countries, they they could get into whatever countries would take them that they were fleeing Nazi slaughter fleeing Nazi persecution. There was never a question about that. Whether you on the far left to the right or the moderates or the or the moderate right on the moderate left. It didn't matter. Everyone knew that they were seeking asylum because they were escaping persecution and death compare them to the month carbon migrants is obscene or the other factor. David Rubin is that America last year legally admitted one point seven million from around the world, mainly from central and South America, all but also from Africa Asia Europe, we are a nation of legal immigrants with last year. One point seven five million. There was another one million or overstayed their visas either four students. Or for vacationers now still are in this country. According to one estimate, we have twenty two million illegals in the country. Today, we have about forty million Americans that do not speak English at home. So it's a lie. And it's a Canard to say that America is not welcoming. So all kinds of immigrants because gosh, we admit legally one point seven five million. And so I've also heard the argument that for example today in Tijuana, there's about six thousand wedding to enter the country illegally of the six thousand about four thousand our young men one thousand or women and one thousand or children, and they're being used as pawns by the radical left to make it look as if Trump is behaving differently than Obama behaved, which is factually inaccurate. Can we control the southern border? Imagine Israel to where you live in Israel today. Imagine there's no borders in Israel whatsoever. And the Palestinians can come back. Back and forth. All they want fences. Make for great neighbors. So what would happen in Israel today if you didn't have border fences? Well, little little known fact Bill on the southern border. There is a wall on the southern border of Israel. Separating Israel from Egypt. There is a wall. There's a high tech wall. In fact. Home security secretary Nielsen into Israel to visit that wall. So that the Trump administration could learn from what Israel has done. There was very serious illegal immigration going going back about five to ten years ago. Very serious legal immigration coming in from northern Africa. And. And. All kinds of problems that settling in south Tel Aviv is a sharp increase in in street crime. What's with Tel Aviv really didn't never had before? And and all of a sudden there rapes in their murders. And and the Israeli government made a decision to do something about it. They built a wall and a serious tech wall. And I'm not talking about a sense. I'm talking about a wall. And it's and since then since it was completed in two thousand fifteen with some upgrades a year later, the immigration, the illegal immigration, of course, there's regular legal immigration, but the illegal immigration has stopped completely. And in fact. Those from North Africa now, no they can't go there. So they stay where they are. And I've heard the argument from Central American academics that the have five countries in Central America with which have terrible problems. They empty out as a terrible thing because Honduras need to solve hunt. Dohrn problems Guatemalans need to solve the problems in Guatemala, El Salvador, nieces, sell the solve the problems there. And so it's bad for the Central American economies in the country themselves to lose the young to March north it's bad for those countries, and it's bad for our country because we go through a process to become a legal immigrant. You have to have medical tests, and you have to have educational achievements. And you have to take a test and all that is skipped by legal who come across the southern border, and for many years, David Ruben of shallow, Israel, the Democratic Party was exactly the same. Same as the Republican party on immigration, in fact, in twenty seven you had Obama Hillary Clinton, and you Chuck Schumer you had sent Senator Reid of Nevada all voting to add funding and build the wall on the southern border. You had in twenty fourteen which wasn't exactly the dark ages President Barack Hussein Obama made frequent speeches about the evils of illegal migration into our country from diseases and economics, they don't fit in that was twenty fourteen. So the Democratic Party made the decision after losing elections. You know, what we gotta do is get rid of the middle class American devote for the Democrats. We have to substitute them with illegal aliens from central and South America to take the place of middle class Americans, which will collapse the society. I see Africans moving into Europe. I see Muslims trying to get through Israel to get into south eastern Europe. I see the migrant world on the southern border. There's an unlike a worldwide f. Effort to come into developed countries to destabilize them, whether it's Germany or France or America, this destabilization doesn't help the native countries you these migrants hurts us in Israel is the perfect example of a functioning democracy in the heart of the Middle East between Syria and Iraq to fallen completely broken states. And now Israel is standing alone by itself. Can you tell me why when I speak to American Jews? The Trump is so unpopular in America. When Trump is very popular in Israel. Well, well, Bill that that was the motivation for writing my books trumping the Jews I I have an entire chapter. And more which is devoted to the the whole question about why do why did of American Jews voted for Hillary Clinton? And why Americans who so vociferously opposed to President Trump? It's not entirely true. Those who those Jews who are more connected to to their roots into the to the biblical heritage. Those Jews would be called orthodox Jews in America. Those those students tend to vote Republican and those Jews tend to support President Trump. It's so great appreciation for what President Trump is done. I mean, he he's been a tremendous president as far as strengthening the bonds between Israel and the United States. And I'm not even talking about what he's done for the economy. He's done a tremendous job to the economy and for other things restored American deterrence. But. But, but he has strengthened that Israel the United States relationship. He did away with the Iran nuclear deal, which would have just given given the and easy test to nuclear bomb within a few years. He's imposed strict sanctions on them. Again. He moved the embassy the US embassy to Jerusalem. Israel's capital where it belongs. He recently gave the order to close down the PLO office the Palestine Liberation office office in in in Washington. So he's been doing a great job. The challenge is to to help American Jews to understand what the roots are that. They are a great people that that who whose leader Moses received the ten commandments on Mount Sinai. That's as much of Jewish heritage of anybody's heritage. And of course, it's become of western civilization Judeo Christian civilization. So I think that a lot of these clarities I cleared up in my book, Trump the Jews, and it's it's not just the book for for all Americans to read. But it's also specifically book for for Jews like Chuck Chuck Schumer to read to read with an open mind that understand the facts of what's going on today. Well, you know, what what is sad is that I have great respect for the Jews. My my boss is the Jewish carpenter and the Jews what you've done in the Middle East, and flowering that desert is unprecedented to friends we have in the Middle East. I think is Saudi Arabia. They're an occasional friend, but the Jewish Israel's been there constantly for us. And I. So bill. I just wanna say Saudi Arabia is one of the most fascinating developments that. But with Saudi Arabia. I agree. Saudi Arabia has been working with the United States and also with Israel. But but that's an arrangement of interests, right? And it's a it's connects convergence of interests, and that's okay. That's okay between nations, but but with Israel and the United States, it's a convergence of interests. And it's also convergence of values. It's a it's a commonality of values that not too many countries in the world have David Rubin. Former mayor of Shiloh. Lastly, I would say this that that is sad. What I see happening to our president being viciously attacked by Jews and the Senate like Chuck Schumer and others for pursuing a policy, which is emboldened the Israelis and others. I could not imagine if we had four to eight more years of the policies of Barack Hussein Obama arming the Iranians and making sure they had a nuclear weapon, how long Israel would. Exist because the cult in charge of Iran right now or fatalist, and they think somehow by obliterating Israel. The Oman will arise from the twelfth well somewhere in the near and suddenly the world is going to be a better place. They're radical Muslim extremist believe that death is the way to have life and to spend time with those seventy two versions, but Jews on the other hand, I think people's God's Representative on earth is United States of America..
