John Zmirak: Kyle Rittenhouse Is a Good Samaritan

"And furthermore, I don't think he's a misguided young foolish young man as David French of national review dismissed Kyle rittenhouse. I think he's a hero. I think he's a good citizen. He's a good Samaritan. Think about the story of the good Samaritan. A man is robbed and beaten and left on the side of the road. Two rather snooty, uptight, self righteous people. One of them a priest and one of them a levite passing by, they don't touch him because they don't want to become ritually impure by touching his blood. A Samaritan, which to the Jews at the time when Jesus was giving the parable, that was like a heretic, that would be like if you were talking to Southern Baptist mentioning a Mormon, okay? The samaritans sees the man goes in tens his wounds of pays for him at the end and takes care of him. Kyle rittenhouse saw that the police and the government were not enforcing Law & Order on the streets of a nearby city where his father lives and I think one of his brothers. It's like hometown man. So he went there as an volunteer EMT. He was handing out water bottles to Black Lives Matter protesters. He was handing out water cops. The cops thanked him for being there. Then a mob of psychopathic Marxist criminals, also known as antifa. Starts targeting the people who are trying to help patrol and keep businesses, small businesses, the backbone of America from getting burned down from getting looted Kyle rittenhouse was being good Samaritan trying to help total strangers preserve their small

"jews" Discussed on Can We Talk?

"Being a black American Jew means that no matter what I'm doing, the first thing people see is that I'm black. I am from an interfaith Muslim Jewish family, growing up in a post 9 11 post second intifada, America, I grew up a racialized Jew. For me, being a first generation immigrant to by choice means that I most often find myself on the outside looking in of multiple spaces and places. Koreans see me as being more American than Korean Jews see me more as being non Jewish as a convert than really and truly Jewish. For me being mixed ethnic, queer, Jewish person is both about being part of something vast and communal and also something that's isolating because it's the pie is getting cut into very small slices and it's hard to find others like yourself. That was Cassandra housley, maruchi zalal, tsuji men Miranda, and gage gorsky, who all identify as Jews of color. The Jews of color initiative, a nonprofit based in San Francisco, estimates that between 12 to 15% of American Jews are Jews of color. The Pew Research institute has a similar if slightly lower estimate. The Jews of color initiative recently released a survey of over a thousand self identified Jews of color from all over the United States. The survey respondents were a diverse group of Jews who also identify as African American, Hispanic or LatinX, Native American or indigenous, Asian American, Pacific Islander, Middle Eastern, mizrahi, and beta Israel or Ethiopian Jewish, and multiracial. Ilana Kaufman is the executive director of the Jews of color initiative. I spoke with her about the survey's findings, and the Jewish communities growing awareness of its own diversity. As this conversation has continued to gain momentum. There's been some very sincere wondering about our experiences as Jewish people of color. Our perspectives, what happens to us when we're communal spaces? Do we really have experiences or racism or not? How and in what ways do we engage Jewish life and why? The survey respondents report engaging in Jewish life in many of the traditional ways. Going to synagogue, celebrating Shabbat and holidays, passing on Jewish identity to the next generation. Three quarters of them said that engaging in tikun olam or social justice was an important expression of their Jewish identity. And an overwhelming majority report facing racism and discrimination in majority white Jewish communal settings. In this episode, ilana and I talk about the survey and its implications. You'll also hear from Cassandra morocha gage and suji about their personal experiences. So elana, this is an engaged group of Jews. That's right. And yet the survey shows that the vast majority, 80% report they faced discrimination, especially in Jewish congregational settings. I mean, I don't imagine that came as a surprise to you or did it. I mean, what was your reaction to that finding? This number is jaw dropping. And while it's not surprising, because each one of us who's a Jewish person of color who engages in community life, experiences racism on a daily basis. What does it mean that a group of a collective group of people who again have different experiences based on our own racial ethnic backgrounds, but a collective experience of racism in this context, what does it mean when a group is so highly engaged and enduring so much so much injustice and pain and what would it be like if we could just dive in and just engage in Jewish life without having to into a racism? My name is Cassandra housley. I'm originally from Terre Haute Indiana, but I've been in Bloomington now for quite a long time. I'm hyper aware that I'm the only black woman in this space. There's no way around that. And all of that subconscious like performance like I have to be awesome because if I do anything wrong, it's not just because I'm, you know, I had a bad day or because, you know, I tripped on my way here and it threw up my mojo, 'cause, well, she's black and she's this, and she's that. And she's the affirmative action hire that we didn't. Or whatever, you know? And I just not wanting to go down that road because once you go down that road, you don't have brain space left to think about what it is you're there to do. I'm suji men Miranda. I live in Ann Arbor, Michigan. I am an immigrant first generation was born in Seoul Korea, converted to Judaism as an adult on my own, and I am currently the executive director of the aleph alliance for Jewish renewal. I was in a waiting room and happened to come across a woman from a synagogue that I was the executive director of for 6 years. I was very, very involved in this synagogue for 6 years. And she mistook me for another Korean woman who belongs to the synagogue. So they're really is, you know, this feeling that Asians, we all look alike. I mean, that's what resonated or made me real. My name is Miro Shah. I also go by Mira. I'm 22. And I grew up on the northeast coast.

What Can We Expect Next From the Durham Investigation?

"What can we expect from this point forward? So is Durham wrapping up his investigation? There's still some skeptics out there, cash. There's still some cynics. Hey look, there'll be a couple process crimes, but don't hold your breath. You're not going to get a Comey. You're not going to get a struck. You're not going to get a page. You're not going to get him a cave. You're not going to get anyone from the senior level of the Clinton campaign. What do you think? Look, I've run these massive conspiracy, massive national security cases, and they take two. I spent two three four years on some cases. John Barnes in his second year. And he's working against literally everyone in government because Merrick Garland's Department of Justice doesn't want to prosecute this. And the Chris ray and the FBI don't want to. So I don't think you issue 40 page indictments for process crimes and tell the world what you're working on if you're just going to stop. That's my opinion. And remember to your audience, an indictment is the only way a prosecutor can tell the world what they're doing because they're not allowed to disclose their evidence. So John Durham has taken the time to methodically issue indictments totaling over a 101 hundred pages now for three people. That's it. And he's identified 15 individuals like the Clinton operative in the matter like Fiona hill like Michael sussman and the like, and I think that's why he's building a larger conspiracy. Now, look, I'm not married to this pipe dream that we're going to get Comey. I wish we could, but I unfortunately just don't think we have the Jews to do it. I do think we have a shot at Andy mccabe and that's probably why the likes of Peter strzok are out in the media now, parading around. Just like Christopher Steele did, parading around his false credibility, now Peter strzok's turn. And that should tell you something that may be something else that's coming down the

Our Faith Touches Everything

"The Germans bought into this stupid idea. They thought, hey, we're German, which means we're Lutheran, which means Luther invented Christianity as far as we're concerned. He invented this idea of grace, grace means I don't have to do anything, and that's that. And of course, Bonham wrote about cheap grace and the idea that if you don't really understand grace, you treat it like nothing. You know, you treat what God has done for you like nothing, which means you don't get it, which means you don't believe which means forget about grace. There's no grace because you have an appropriate degree. I really believe for other reasons the church in America today has done the same thing. I think there are different reasons, but there are tons of people who've excoriated people like me and Frank and said, you've made an idol of politics. You've made an idol of Donald Trump. You know, ridiculous things. And the point is no, we just believe that our faith touches everything. It's not some little parochial religious thing that stays in the corner, like the official church is doing China. It's something that has to come out of the church and live everywhere. We have a free exercise of religion, freedom to do that. So if you keep it in this little religious theological corner, then it's phony. It's abbreviated faith. If you don't live it out in the school, on the workplace, on the radio, on the whatever it is, if you don't do that, you don't really believe it. Your phony. So when people talk about, I just want to preach the gospel. I don't want to be I don't want to be political. We think that's just stupid. That makes no sense. Because if you're a Jew in a boxcar going to Treblinka or Auschwitz, you think, you know, I would love it if there was some Christians out there on the other side of this boxcar who believed what they said and would get political and stand up against the system that is sending me my family to death. That means getting political.

What Happened When Eric 'Came Out' as a Trump Supporter

"Because when I wrote the bonhoeffer book, so many people came to love me who then once I came out of the closet as believing Trump was better than Hillary Clinton as a candidate is pretty crazy stuff. When I came out on that, these people thought, I get emails now a little bit less often, but I was getting emails like almost every day. Have you lost your mind? Didn't you read your own bonhoff for book? Don't you see, you know, effectively that Hitler, I mean, that's a Trump is Hitler two. Don't you get it? He's an authoritarian monster. You know, and I realized that it's almost funny because it's precisely the opposite. It's the left that has taken on the mantle of Hitler. Has anybody referred to Hitler as having a mantle before? The biblical, it's an anti mantle sure. But the point is the point is that the parallels are stark. But even a number of years ago, even I don't know, 7 years ago, 8 years ago, people would say, how did this happen in Nazi Germany? How did that happen? And I said, it happened exactly like it's happening here now. That's how it happened. So the idea that I mean, of course, if you have a racist view of Germans, it's very easy to say how it happened. The Germans are uniquely evil. But if you believe that you're as bad as the Germans who hated the Jews as being uniquely evil, we all know, as Dennis just said that it's not a racial issue. It's a human issue. And we don't know why God allows it to go as it does through history. You know, if I were God, I don't think I would have let the Holocaust happen, but I'm not

If You're Not Prepared to Think Biblically, Be Careful

"And if you're not prepared to really think biblically in the power and the wisdom of the Holy Spirit, be careful because the enemy wants to use scripture against God. He did it when he quoted scripture in the wilderness to Jesus. So I just want to challenge my fellow Christians and conservatives. Be careful because people's real lives are at stake, whether it's the Jew that's being hunted by the Gestapo, whether it's somebody like Sasha, suffering in a Ukrainian orphanage or whether it's the innumerable Americans and people around the world who are suffering horribly because Biden is ostensibly the president of the United States. Be careful. Let's use a real example Eric. For example, French, again, David French, a writer formerly of national review, and now with the dispatch, here's a guy who postures as a conservative Christian who's who's arguments in his articles are rooted in scripture. This is the claim. He of stated very clearly that he hoped Biden would win the election. And then recently, he wrote an article to comfort Christians who are concerned about the very real possibility that the Hyde amendment, which prevents an additional 50,000 abortions a year that the Biden amendment is excuse me. The Hyde amendment is now imperiled. And so you're going so on the one hand, you have you have told the Gestapo that you have Jews in your basement. And now you're ringing your hands and saying to everyone, now listen, I know that this looks really grim and it looks bad because heading into the basement with their machine guns, but hey, God is sovereign.

Dara horn is angry, and the award winning author of 5 novels wants you to know why. This week, she's sitting down with my guest co host, Laura Shaw Frank, AJC's director of contemporary Jewish life to discuss why people love dead Jews. People love dead Jews also happens to be the title of dera's first work of non fiction. Laura has been eager to ask Dara what that means for those of us Jews who are still living. Laura, the Micah shores. Derek horn, welcome to people of the pod. Thanks so much for having me. So from the moment I heard the title of your new book, people love dead Jews.

Well, you asked me about the Martin email I quote. And of course, it's in my Bonham for book, but it's everywhere. Martini Mueller was a hero, a German hero, he fought in World War one. He got into the ministry, and he was just an incredible guy. But he was slow to wake up to the Nazi threat. He thought, like a lot of people do, like, well, we can work with them or they're not so bad or something, right? Well, when he finally woke up, it was too late, and he wrote a poem and you were talking about it. It's a famous quote where he says, when they came for the trade unionists, I was not a trade unionist. So I didn't speak up. When they came for the communists, I was not a communist, so I didn't say anything. I didn't speak up. When they came for the Jews, I was not a Jew. So I didn't say anything. I didn't speak up. And then when they came for me, there was no one left to speak up for me. And that's the idea is that we need to stand with others. When they say, I'm going to cancel so and so. I'm going to cancel I'm going to come after so and so if we don't all stand for those people, I say it's about Mike lyndell. I tell people buy pillows you don't need. Use the code Eric.

Why would a. Us president do what he did in afghanistan. It is utterly unfathomable to me in other words as upset as i am about it. I'm even more mystified. Because i feel like we all must be missing something. Nobody could be this incompetent. There's gotta be more to the story. At least that's my theory will. Unfortunately my book enemies and allies didn't come out in time. And i say that because as you read this book you'll see is i described the transition from president trump to president biden or. I'll just say president biden. There there he is. He's making these days vice president biden. That's probably more accurate. If you don't mind. So so. But i i actually profile him towards the end of the book because i knew everybody would be asking. What should we expect. It's going to be a sharp contrast from trump to biden's but what do we know about by right. Well there are some good things. He's the most pro israel person in the entire democratic party and using eight which is saying almost nothing. No no look. Let's be fair israel. Bipartisan point of unity.

Maybe this will get me there I love freedom. it's It's a very great value of mine. And i love being a jew and the two things are very much connected in my mind. I think there's a kind.

Jews are pro israel. Liberal jews tend almost to be pro palestinian or very worried about israel In the way that the harvard faculty was worried about the rotc. Well i mean well the connection you're making is exactly right. I think Why is that. well. I don't put it so much as pro israel that i cannot for the life of me understand how any decent human being could be anything but pro israel. The great question is why did the arab world Why did the arab league organiz in nineteen forty five against the state of israel. You tell me and why. I have my theories. Well i have many theories. I wrote a book about that too. Actually called jusin power Trying to explain anti semitism. And which i define as the organization of politics against the jews and my sense is that you always have to look at the function of anti semitism. Who does it serve. And what purposes does it serve and it seems very clear that the only glue of the arab league in nineteen forty five was common opposition to the state of israel and that's still in some profound terrifying way. The only actual unifying element on a political level within that terribly disparite and and and really frac fragmented and fractured world. So it plays a very important part among arab and muslim societies and unfortunately lately it has been imported into the united states of america quite successfully and driven home

Boris Epshteyn on the Woman in a Gorilla Mask Attacking Larry Elder

"Look full disclosure. He's a colleague of mine at salem. Radio host larry elder the sage of south central. He is running to replace gavin. And just this shocking video. That msnbc the mainstream media cnn just really isn't interested in what would what would happen if the if the roles were reversed and they white republican in gorilla mask tried to attack a black democrat candidate for anything. Boris the Attacks on larry elder have been so outside the lines have been so despicable but they underscore exactly what democrats are. They're power hungry sebastian. They are racist that. Let's be honest. We know from alana mall rasheed. Leave their antisemitic they will. They will not back off any offensive thing that they can do in order to gain or keep power and that's what's happening and california. That's what's happening to other and it's really terrible to say but this truly is the most the rank form of racism and the fact that the media doesn't care bar is expected. That's what it is that today's media is of course they don't care when when it's republicans who are offended. They don't care they all four women politicians but then with governor palin. They did nothing but viciously attack her and they're doing the city they prefer tend to to be you know above race or posed ratio or not racist than and accepting everybody but of course they attack larry elder and use these racist to do and of course again they use that semitic tropes than an actual anti-semitism to to attack israel to attack jews. So this goes back to the obvious thing about the democrat party if you look at their history through the kkk. Through through jim crow through the south in the sixties and seventies of the past century the democrat party has been the one that has been anti semitic. That's been blatantly racist and has been the one that is disenfranchising america's all across the country. Republican party is the party of inclusivity is the party of opportunity is the party of chance. And that's exactly what the maximum is all about under the leadership of president trump.

"Address anti-semitism and feel empowered in their jewish identity from before they go off to college and through their college years and beyond and now dr gorgeous in this segment of our history of israel. We wanna take a little bit of a step aside and not talk about israel internally your talk about israel's foreign policy fuck about american susan how american jews felt about israel. We tend to have the following assumptions. America has always been israel's most important ally and we also have this assumption. Oh americans zoos loved. Israel really loved it from the very beginning until the palestinian conflict happened. And then once there was an occupation then understandably americans has got very conflicted about israel and that leads us to where we are now and where. We're going to see very quickly. Is that neither of those assumptions are true. And let's start with the latter one. This idea that american jews were from the very outset really in love with this idea of jewish state. They weren't and they were in fact very conflicted about the idea of jewish state. And here's why here's what president. Woodrow wilson says in one thousand nine hundred fifteen two years before the belford declaration he says to a group of newly naturalized americans. You cannot dedicate yourself to america unless you become an every respect and in every purpose of your will thorough americans you cannot become thorough americans if you think of yourself in groups. America does not consist of groups. A man. 'cause it's nine hundred fifteen. That's how he spoke back them. A man who thinks of himself as belonging to a particular national group in america has not yet become an american and the man who goes among the trade upon your nationality is nowhere. The son to live under the stars and stripes. wilson says. we're all in favor of immigration. We want you in. You can be italian. Americans austrian american spanish americans polish americans russian americans. But not your americans and the minute. Your identity is hyphenated. You're not really american at all. That's one thousand nine hundred fifteen but in nineteen thousand nine hundred seventeen british issue the balfour declaration his majesty's government view with favour the establishment in palestine of a national home for the jewish people and european sinus. Look at american jews and say okay. Come on join us looking at all the progress. We've made american just very uncomfortable. How you make your weight in america and we know of the jews were hardly equal in america in nineteen fifteen or nineteen seventeen. They had a long way to go. How do you make your way in america and at the same time. Say i'm a scientist. I also want to build an american homeland somewhere else. It's a very uncomfortable position for american jews..

"He's trying to top down. This is very clear that that is his message. He's not going to. He doesn't want to run with a dozen under him in a coalition. He wants to replace it. I think it's a fascinating development partly for said about what it will do inside israel but also in itself but one thing it suggests once again. Is this kind of guinea pig nation. It's the first time as far as i know that. The lincoln project have taken their show on the road outside the united states. I the testing the export ability of their proposition. Which was it seemed unique to the challenge against trump but actually exists in many many places. Which is the idea of still appealing to the traditional rights. But saying this one manifestation of it is somehow an aberration. That trump was. Not a real republican. He was an aberration. And my guess is their message for on. Sarah's going to be you can still be truly could make a true. You know israeli nationalist but bb's the aberration the party because of his departure from the the norms of the law. And i'm fascinated to know if it works with get on saw almost. It's more important than if it worked against trump because trump. You could say well. That was such a wild extreme case. But if you don't sign it works and we know there's a a mixed history of american consultants coming in and trying they message and here to actually but if it works will then become the means. Will that consultancy or the lincoln project template become the model adopted by all kinds of places where there is a fight against populism. So you know will. Will there be the opposition in hungary and poland hiring steve schmidt in the lincoln guys to take on off ban all the government in and i'm thinking about britain. You know this is a bit too late. If only we. There had been a lincoln project pre twenty-sixth before the brexit referendum that could have channeled that concert energy among conservatives who were not pro. Brexit were pro european conserved. They never got their act together. Really those pro european conservatives remain conservatives. They needed a vehicle. A message like the lincoln. Maybe this is going to become a big international business. The kind of anti populism international from where i'm sitting you know the best of luck to them because it's absolutely needed but israel like with vaccine will be the test case. Yep so we want to talk a little bit about the mentioned the week don't we i love this. I love this because we need. We need something a bit. Cheery although we've had a bit with the with the inauguration story was very cheery. No we will. We need some light in all in order to blame. So who's your well. Should i get a choice. yes. I'm just i'm afraid of maybe a tiny bit of a repeat here because among my mentioned was jon ossoff the newly elected democratic senator from georgia and i made the point that he by being there was raphael warnock who also elected that they were together between the two of them symbolizing the black jewish alliance of the nineteen sixties and. I said You reminded me of martin. Luther king walking arm and arm with a the eminent rabbi and reaching full the name three word three word name of an.

"Biontech vaccine is not giving the protection that they were hoping it would and the reason why that i does has huge salience here in the uk is that britain has made a decision to leave a long gap between the first and second days much longer than the advice of the drug manufacturers themselves. Who say i think it should be. We tell me two or three weeks. I think is what israel is doing in two three okay three week. Three week gap in the u. k. The decision has been to actually give as many people as possible at first and then wait twelve weeks before giving the second the idea being at least get a thin and wide cover raw the narrow and deep but that was predicated on the idea that i owe suffice. It would give you quite a lot of protection. The evidence from israel. And this is why the the the chief scientific adviser saying i'm really looking at it very closely is. Maybe that isn't good enough because we've all been seeing it. Even you know the former chief. Rabbi i think by lao contrite and corona virus even case even after two doses people are really watching thinking. Maybe one dose is not enough. Yeah i know Since israel is becoming like this pilot right the model nation that might actually be vaccinated Before the first country to be almost totally vaccinated there there are questions And as you say israel decided to have that three week gap And the. I think the astonishing thing for many israelis is the fact that they you know there were so proud of the vaccination operations almost a month since the first of vaccination and the numbers are dropping right. That it's a much longer process than what we thought From from the it's gonna take you. I mean it is an amazing idea of israel not to start up nation but kind of guinea pig nation and people watching it around the world be arrived there. Was this hope that you could begin to ease lockdown because the vaccination vaccine would kick in and an early and having a quick impact and yeah the the israel thing is a worrying precedent. We have to mention one more political story. Yes from this country. Which is the fact. That don't star started working with the lincoln project right the republican strategists who got under trump's skin Because precisely because they were republican strategists. started working with him with the first Video up And i think it begs the question of how much this will affect The you know the election in this country I think it's it's also interesting to note that a lot of people from outside israel think that gets on solid the moderate his opinions because of the fact that he's anti bbb because if he talks about the rule of law cetera. He is not right if anything. He is a little bit. More to the rights. Of benjamin netanyahu but these are the people that he started working with.

"Just on the on the fit of joe biden he not only do american american jewish vote. Democratic there is a particular fit. I think between american jews and the kind of democrat. Joe biden is now younger. Jews getting more and more progressive and they may be more comfortable with and he sambas will the squad or whatever. But i think you'll sort of made the mainstream center of gravity of american. Jerry just feels comfortable with a with somebody. Like joe biden. Who is you know just sort of relaxed around jews. I think that's something. I remember when when his daughter married a jewish doctor. Which is the supreme type of jew and he said you know. I'm the only irish catholic. You know as history met because his daughter married a jewish surgeon. Right i mean it's that he has sympathy and empathy for minorities in general and and and of course for for the jewish minority. That's that's pretty clear. But i think director you off. There were union still making a point. I was enjoying the jewish surgeon. Reference sex joke but also. Because it's no joke. I mean all three of his children married jewish spouses and the baby grandson The he held in his arms in one of the photographs. That went round is how logically jewish cetera. I'm wary of going down this road. I'm i'm monitoring myself as i say because of course people defended trump on this count by saying look. His son-in-law jared kushner is jewish. Ivanka converted to judaism. He has jewish grandchildren. therefore he's obviously a wonderful friend of the jews. Even though i thought so many of the points that trump would make resorted to i thought old fashioned anti-jewish tropes about money lending and chiseling to get a good deal and so on so i'm going down the children grandchildren line but nevertheless the fact that you know biden says jokes that he's been going to a seder almost as long as he's been going to catholic mass because of what happened with these blended family. You know i think any way. There is just kind of degree of comfort in joe biden with american jews. He he's relaxed around them. I think it's no coincidence that he's appointed lots. I think he's just in that area. Where the different opens up is absolutely on israel. And they're you know it's an interesting question you know. would they prefer someone like trump. he may be less good on jewish stuff. Because he's down. The line wins the netanyahu position. I think that is exactly the question. And when you first of all we have to say that joe biden is as he called himself often. I'm zionist at heart right. There's no question the whole story always tells about golden year. You know how he was worried on the eve of the war as a young senator in the she said. Don't worry because we have a secret ingredient in our war against the arabs says one she says we have nowhere else to go and he tells the story for forty years ride. And there's this famous thing he says to be be no his quotes. I don't agree with the damn thing you say. But i love you. It's clear right that he has a very warm feelings butts In the is first of all we have to realize that israel. Israel's general getting off a sugar rush. Right i mean for four years..

"Mattis was his defense secretary because he looked like something out with central casting central casting and donald trump said was. Very kind of ethnically stereotyped. Joe biden's already done more than that. He's got people in all kinds of fields. Not just handling the cash he's not playing to that caricature actually the question. I very interested here. What you think on this unique does it matter. Does it matter. Is it good for the jews. If there are lots of jews around in american president items would you think. Well i i mean. Besides the communal pride we all have rights one of perks of being a minority. You have to share this communal pride. In in in that fact you know. I think we have to relate to the fact that there is obviously a rift between the majority of jews in the united states and the majority of israeli jews right. I mean they're not on the same page politically and for four years. Thoughts of american. Jewish democrats are You know the larger part of the jewish electorate were sidelines because it was easier for the right wing governments and for the right in israel to listen to the republican. Jews are minority the for example. You know embassador. Dave friedman more to the right than netanyahu and to the jonquils and they sidelines the the majority of jewish news. Now that now their voices are going to become much more important and much more important in relevance to israel as well so there's a question here what what the future of this is. But i mean For sure it's something that that israel is noticing that is definitely the case. I mean these guys are really interesting distinction. And is one of the gaps from those inside israel to those jews outside it is not the same thing at all you can be really good for israel and you mention trump and david freedman and yet still be sort of out of step with american jews. Who are you know. Skew overwhelmingly liberal jews. The religious minorities most loyal to the democratic party. More than any other faith community even if you put a different label on it and talk about them. As an ethnic minority. Jews are second only to african americans in their fidelity to the democratic party. I think you know. Exit polls vary but there was one exit poll sunni the seventy seven percent of or. Maybe it was in seventy seven. Bit of american voted for joe biden. So there's a real comfort.

"That it still hasn't happened. It's gonna take a while of carelessly. Had that moment so anyway we must say that there are many jews appointed to joe biden's cabinet so yeah like i say i had makarius thrill away seeing Common harris up there. Because i was imagining what it would be like but in a way we don't need to imagine there's a jewish connection of dicamba harasses husband the so called second. Gentlemen doug emhoff is jewish. But he's more. I think more substantively more importantly is the number of jews. Joe biden's appointed to key positions. Now like i say with this sort of florida. Jewish couple in my mind a little bit. I am wary of this game. I'm aware that they can be a little say. How many jews and you know people did this. Even with donald trump who had steven mnuchin treasury and gary cohn as his chief economic adviser but nevertheless it is striking that there are a at least ten. Prominent jews nominated to key positions. The forward of jewish paper was joking. There would be enough numbers to have a minion in the west wing. That been getting around awhile but you can go through. The may is they're insignificant places. He's chief of staff on clain. Twenty lincoln secretary of state. Who's made a huge thing. In his in his testimony when he appeared before the senate foreign relations committee for his nomination to be ratified he's straightaway talked about his stepfather. Samuel pisa who was really a very prominent holocaust survivor. Tony blinken talked about that. Janet yellen at treasury the attorney general. He's merrick garland who has denied a spot on the supreme court. Joe biden brings him back as attorney. General alejandra my your us homeland security secretary ever jews richter national intelligence. Wendy sherman is deputy secretary say on and on it goes are more names. They're you know you'd have to be a -tarian in your rules you'd have to say women count as a minion but if you make that shift if you'll reform more conservative and you allow women to take the million you definitely have a million in the west wing now. The question is whether it matters a tool. I mean in a way there was. Donald trump did have a couple of jews around incidentally small prince's on that i was not it was amazing and people pointed this out that donald trump used to appoint cabinet members to sort of type and and so you know he's housing and urban development secretary was black and he's head of education was a woman because he could imagine a woman as a schoolteacher. You imagine how urban development that's black people and so similarly people notice the He's to jewish appointments. Were to deal with money. It was the treasury secretary in the you know economic adviser he sort of played to that needs to say didn't he..

"Cash at podcasts on holy to jews on the news you only. I've had some interesting reaction. Stephen to that little phrase because some people think is it just a little. Is it a little bit too jewish. It's to ju to say to jews on the news. Some people think the rhyme is too much one thousand different. See that that's the difference between jews. Jews in israel and jews living anywhere else in the world because i've only gotten the response of saying that's a great name. No one in israel think something to jewish. You just can't be to jewish except yeah works very well. Is it a little bit kind of florida early. Bird supper at five. Pm you know where the bad thing is it. Good for the jews. You know harry put it down. Put down the down the beef i gotta know. Is it good for the jews on the news. Like on one of those you know boca raton community station or or or carl. Reiner and mel brooks read newspapers right on the podcast which is expanding world. Look we should be so lucky to be the coal reiner and mel brooks and the current affairs and israeli news. That would be a good comparison. But that's what we're going to be doing talking about what's going on in the world and yet again you'll need a lot to get teeth in. I mean history made on capitol hill this week. There was history made last week of the rather horrible kind with the storming of the capital but this time transfer of power. You hesitates say peaceful transfer of power but the ceremony went to head. The inauguration of joe biden and kamala harris happened after everything that went before it did. It did indian and you mentioned amin two weeks ago. The storming of capital one week ago. The president impeached by the house again. And this Inauguration happening very Different from previous inaugurations. But i think there was a moment there right with with komo harris swearing in That whatever your opinions are that is. That is a moment for history. Jewish thing here which is the notion is always jewish thing. The thing is always the thing of seeing yourself represented. I think jewish. I understand in other words the idea of my kid for example my youngest son when we travel when he was very little. We drive for an airport if lots of flag flags and everything but the welcome to in different languages if he saw it in hebrew. This is a purchase a british jewish and hebrew. He would get a little kick because he felt as if somehow this is even as a child on some level he'd been recognized and therefore that imp org knowledge that impulse to need really to see yourself be. I think we get that white. Be so important for black americans or americans asian descent to see one of their number up there and it made me think welcome to the harris was up there. What will he be like when there is finally a jewish mice president or president of the united states..

"Songs wrongs written by Jews. My Name's Moxy. And this is your brain on facts. A little bit about why this episode exists before we begin while getting episodes out on time in the last six weeks of the year has been an absolute fool's errand for me while working retail and rideshare. It pleases me to post an episode day early for the first time ever two days into Hanukkah and two days before Christmas though I was raised Catholic or as Richard. Jenny said I'm Catholic. In the same way that if a Kaur born in a tree it would be a bird in recent years. We've discovered that my mother's family converted from from Judaism when they moved to the US. During Pre World War Two spike in antisemitism the generation that converted kept their former faith and their heritage a secret from their children though the fundraisers that their local JCC's still found them in the more recent past at a Hanukkah party at a local teashop. That happened going on at the exact same time on the same street as the cramps.

In the first place the very first podcast.
