"President Trump's Trailblazing Pro-Israel Actions" by Rabbi Aryeh Spero in American Thinker May 24, 2017 

"During the last three days, Mr. Trump has made trailblazing and unprecedented gestures before the entire world demonstrating an unequivocal bond and affection for the Jewish people and for the Jewish State... 

In his visit to Saudi Arabia, while addressing the assemblage of those representing most of the Arab world, Mr. Trump declared words that previous leaders may have believed but were afraid, unwilling, or hesitant to utter. The President adamantly spoke to them about a State of Israel, a state that he admires...

This took great courage; but more so it demonstrated that for Mr. Trump Israel is a country with which he is proud to be associated with, and its recognition as a Jewish state is an incontrovertible basis for Arabic and Muslim participation in the goals of his administration and the contours of global reality."

Israeli political and defense commentator, Alon ben-David, Ch.10 Israel TV News, shares his view of Trump's (vs Obama's) evolving Mid-East diplomacy in exclusive JooTube.TV interview:  

Rabbi Spero continued: "There appears to be real friendship and affection, born of his regard for Israel as a land rooted in a righteous and sacred destiny. It is rooted in Mr. Trump's respect for those nations willing to stand up and stand out in the fight against the scourge of Islamic terrorism. Respect and affection, mind and heart. 

Mr. Trump was the first acting president to visit the Western Wall in Jerusalem, treating it not as simply an historic museum piece but with an immediate reverence and sacredness. It is obvious he believes in the Israeli narrative. He speaks of defending the Jewish people and the Jewish State, equating them within a singular destiny. Everything in his trip to Israel resonated and evinced respect, regard, and affection. 

Jewish MId-East refugees dilute Palestinian refugees' Nakba protest at Israeli Consulate

Anti-Zionist Muslims' and Leftists' beliefs, attitudes and intentions contradict peaceful co-existence alongside a Jewish Israel.

Southern California Muslims and Leftists staged an anti-Israel, "Nakba (Catastrophe) Day" outside the Israeli Consulate in West L.A. on May 15, and in Sherman Oaks on May 16th. The organizers promoted the events in advance on Facebook, drawing 30-40 demonstrators mid-day who drove from as far as from Orange and Ventura County 
to stand in West L.A. with flags and chants. 

 Jew would not back down to megaphone as weapon
With no counter-protest response from pro-Israel advocacy groups, the sole Jews, JooTube.TV and Harim Uziel's livestream attracted the attendance of four other passing-by area Jewish men. Palestinian protest leader, Tawfieq Mousa (who allegedly sucker-punched one of the Jewish men at an August 2014 anti-Israel rally at the Federal Building in Westwood) became unnerved by their arrival on the scene. When the Jews stood up to their attempts to intimidate the Jews, the sole policemen on the scene had to step into action and call for backup.

JooTube original newsvideo reveals Islamo/Leftists' irredentist aims at conquering the Jewish state to establish a demographically Muslim Palestine over Israel, and not a co-existing, Jewish tolerating state, as idealists seek to project. The video reveals activists rejecting and undermining Israel's continuation as a Jewish state. In fact, one of the demonstrators, Greta Berlin, proudly boasted of her leadership in the Gaza Flotilla movement. 

From "Nakbacide" by Daniel Greenfield in Sultan Knish May 16, 2017. 

Palestine entirely was designated for a Jewish National Homeland in 1920 
By July 1922, the British gave away eastern Palestine to become Trans-Jordan
"The revisionist Muslim history of Israel ethnically cleanses the thousands of years of history of the original Jewish inhabitants and a thousand years of persecution under Muslim rule. It leaves out the massacres and atrocities carried out by the Muslim invaders against the Jewish inhabitants in the 20th century, including the Hebron Massacre, and the Nazi collaboration of their leader, the Mufti of Jerusalem. Instead it begins and ends with Deir Yassin and angry old women holding up oversized housekeys and reminiscing about the good times they had massacring Jews. 

On May 15th ... Muslims in Israel chant and riot to protest their unsuccessful genocide of the minority indigenous Jewish population. It's hard to think of a more repulsive spectacle of historical obliviousness, than a regional majority responsible for multiple genocides dressing up as the victims because their invasion of Israel ended in a stalemate, rather than a genocidal purge of its residents. The Nakbaites were supposed to be the beneficiaries of a genocide to be carried out by the armies of seven Muslim nations. Instead they had to settle down in Syria, Jordan and elsewhere around the region. An easy thing to do since they are the same people, speak the same language and share the same culture. The difference between a Jordanian Arab and a Jordanian Palestinian is a few miles and about twenty-five years." Read more. 

Los Angeles is no stranger to Muslim violence towards Israel and her supporters. Six months ago, a British-Israeli survivor of Palestinian-terror, Kay Wilson traveled through the site of a Muslim's attempted massacre at the El Al Airlines check-in desk 10-months after the terror of Sept. 11, 2001. Six people were injured and 2 Jews were murdered. 

Ms. Wilson called to stop western funding of Muslim Palestinian religious enticement to terror against Christians and Jews. The Jews who came to counter-protest declared that despite the physical hostility of the Arabs, they are not afraid. "The days of the meek Jew are over." They hope that the pro-Israel establishment in L.A. and other cities prepare better to make a showing, because the photos and news in the mainstream and activist- press encourages the strength of anti-Zionist Jihad against Israel and Jews and Christians who support her survival.

"Netanyahu: Allies could have saved 4 million Jews if they’d bombed death camps in 1942" The Times of Israel, April 24th
Israeli P.M. Benjamin Netanyahu condemned int'l complacency
to earlier intel of Nazi's mass murdering of Jewish people 
at Yad Vashem Holocaust Remembrance ceremony 
In bitter Holocaust Remembrance Day speech citing new UN documents, PM castigates global indifference 75 years ago, says it persists today Israel’s Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu on Sunday launched a blistering assault on Allied policy during World War II, saying world powers’ failure to bomb the Nazi concentration camps from 1942 cost the lives of four million Jews and millions of others.

Citing recently released UN documents
that show the Allies were aware of the scale of the Holocaust in 1942, some two years earlier than previously assumed, Netanyahu said in a speech marking Holocaust Remembrance Day that this new research assumed “a terrible significance.”

“If the powers in 1942 had acted against the death camps — and all that was needed was repeated bombing of the camps — had they acted then, they could have saved 4 million Jews and millions of other people,” he said at the official state ceremony marking the start of the memorial day.
Allies declined bombinb railways leading to genocide camps 

“The powers knew, and they did not act,” he told the audience at the Yad Vashem Holocaust memorial in Jerusalem. “When terrible crimes were being committed against the Jews, when our brothers and sisters were being sent to the furnaces,” he went on, “the powers knew and did not act.”
In a bleak and bitter address, the Israeli prime minister said that the Holocaust was enabled by three factors: the vast hatred of the Jews, global indifference to the horrors, and “the terrible weakness of our people in the Diaspora.”

Anti-Semitism had not disappeared, and “it would be naive to think” that it would do so in the foreseeable future, he said. It was being exacerbated by “hatred from the East,” led by Iran and the Islamic State, he added.

How French Jews for Macron undermine own future; Will American Democrats duplicate?

As of 2016, France's 460,000 Jewish population is the largest in Europe. As a result of this Sunday's projected presidential election of Emmanuel Macron, that population will shrink, according to gentile French analyst, Dr. Guy Milliere. In "French Elections: Emmanuel Macron, a Disaster" published by Gatestone Institute, socio-political analyst, Dr. Guy Milliere, argues that the example of the shooting of 2 policemen on the Champs Elysées April 20th, in which Muslim Frenchman, Karim Cheurfi, murdered Xavier Jugele, 37, "summarizes everything that is broken in terms of security in France today."

Dr. Milliere writes, "Men with a profile similar to that of Karim Cheurfi (i.e., suspects not found to communicate with terrorist organizations or appear to be hatching terrorist projects) have, in recent years, been responsible for most of the terrorist attacks in France and Belgium:
  • Mohamed Merah, who killed three Jewish children and the father of two of them in Toulouse in 2012;
  • Mehdi Nemmouche, who attacked the Brussels Jewish Museum in 2014;
  • the Kouachi brothers, who committed the Charlie Hebdo massacre in 2015; Amedy Coulibaly, who murdered four Jews in the Saint Mandé grocery Kosher store Hypercacher;
  • Samy Amimour and others who maimed and murdered 130 innocent people in the Bataclan theater in November 2015;
  • Mohamed Lahouaiej Bouhlel, who drove a truck into the crowd in Nice in July 2016, killed 86 people and wounded many others, and, among others, those who beheaded a priest in Normandy a few weeks after the attack in Nice.

The successive French governments under the presidency of François Hollande showed themselves to be appallingly weak and impotent.

A climate of fear has overtaken the country. Attendance at theaters has declined. The particularly targeted Jewish community -- two-thirds of the attacks in France in the last five years targeted Jews -- feels abandoned. When a Jewish cemetery was vandalized on March 30 in Waldwisse, eastern France, neither the media nor the political leaders reacted. A week later, in Paris, a Jewish woman, Sarah Halimi, was tortured and then thrown out of a window by a non-radicalized Muslim, simply because she was Jewish: the French media and political leaders, with the exception of the courageous MP Meyer Habib, also did not react.

A silent gathering below the window was organized by some leaders of the Jewish community. Only Jews came; they were greeted by anti-Semitic insults by Arab Muslims in the neighborhood. The implantation of radical Islam in the country is intensifying. The annual meeting of "Muslims of France" (the new name of the French branch of the Muslim Brotherhood), took place on April 14-17 in Le Bourget, ten miles north of Paris. Anti-West, anti-Israeli and anti-Jewish diatribes were delivered to enthusiastic crowds of bearded men and veiled women. 150,000 people attended. 
. . . 

Emmanuel Macron's campaign effectiveness is also due to the fact that in France, virtually no media is likely to contradict what is said in the mainstream media: the French economy is a very state-based economy in which creating and sustaining media independence from the government and from government subsidies is almost impossible. 

The second round of the French presidential election will take place on Sunday, May 7th. Emmanuel Macron will face the only remaining candidate, populist Marine Le Pen. 
Marine LePen distinguished her policies from Emmanuel Macron and Merkel

During the entire campaign, she was almost the only one to speak clearly about the Islamic terrorist threat (François Fillon did, too, but more discreetly) and to offer credible solutions to fight it. She was the only one to speak of the rise of radical Islam in France and to denounce the Muslim Brotherhood gathering at Le Bourget. She was the only one to stress the increasing perils resulting from uncontrolled immigration, and the risk of French culture disappearing. She was also the only one to mention the demographic change that occurs in France and in Europe because of the new migrants. She was the only one to denounce the Islamic anti-Semitism that relentlessly kills Jews in France. Unfortunately, she has a nearly Marxist economic program, close to that of Jean Luc Melenchon. She is the leader of the National Front, a party founded by her father, an anti-Semite, Jean-Marie Le Pen; although she has excluded her father and virtually all her father's anti-Semitic friends from the National Front, she is nonetheless the party leader and is regarded as her father's daughter.
Marine Le Pen and the National Front will be used as scarecrows to urge voters to rally massively behind Macron, in the name of a "Republican front" against "fascism." The strategy was developed thirty years ago by the French left, under President Francois Mitterrand. It has always worked, and in a few days, it will work again.
Analyst, Guy Milliere sees socialists rising through multiculturalist
advocating and importing of Israel-loathing, Mid-East Muslims

Macron now has the support of the entire Socialist party, and the support of virtually all other politicians. He also has the support of all French Muslim organizations. The rector of the Great Mosque of Paris said that Muslims must "massively vote" for him. The Jewish community leaders also rallied on behalf of Macron. On May 7, he will likely get more than 60% of the Jewish vote.

Most will not be based on the support for a project; the risk is high that Macron will disappoint the French even faster than Hollande did. The French may quickly discover that he is just a man chosen by the French left to preserve an unsustainable status quo a little longer, and a member of the self-appointed élites who do not care about ordinary people's problems, who consider that terrorist acts are "imponderable events", and who believe that national identities can melt in a no-border globalized world. When the French discover who Macron is, there will be nothing they can do to change what they voted in. 
Guy Milliere self-exiled from France, interviewed in Nevada

The risk to France in the next five years will probably be painful for the French. According to the Police, more than 12,000 radicalized Muslims live in the country and most of them are not under surveillance. The Police do not have the means to do more than they currently are doing, and Macron does not seem to care. The justice system is in the hands of judges who appear lenient to terrorists, and Macron seems to accept it. The flow of migrants will not stop, and Macron apparently does not intend to do anything about that. More and more, Muslims segregate themselves from French society in expanding Islamist mini-states."

Dr. Milliere predicts that under Macron, France's Jews will face the same choice as he - bigotry from Muslim and Leftists will move them to give up their lives in France. Better to emigrate now than to hastily flee, Milliere quotes from a friend. 

"Nothing Macron proposes can reverse the decline of the French economy and French society. Terror attacks will undoubtedly occur. Jews and others will undoubtedly be killed. Riots and discontent will undoubtedly take place. 

 . . . In the next election, in 2022, Catholic France may well see a Muslim candidate run -- and win."  Read the full article

On Holocaust Memorial Day (April 24th), Dr. Milliere addressed how the Islamo-Fascist Axis (under the ideal of "diversity") ascends to power by promoting pro-Palestinian/anti-Zionist Muslims to intimidate the pacifistic, secular West. He claims that socialists today apply Nazi strategy to garner power: vilify Zionists, promote totalitarian Islam to the Left.

Israel survives 89-years of the Arab-influenced world against them

Dr. Daniel Doron, president of the Israel Center for Social and Economic Progess, contends that Moslem intolerance of traditionally subjugated Jews causes them to undermine the true history, present, and future of the Middle East. On the occasion of Israel's 3,600 birthday (69-years in modern sovereign state), Dr. Doron retells the true history of the establishment of the Arab and Israeli states.

Dr. Daniel Doron
Following World War I, the Ottoman Empire was carved into states, on the condition that 2% would go to re-establish the Jewish National Home in Palestine, Arab King of Hedjaz, through his son Emir Feisal, Arabs accepted the all of the remaining the territory for their states. The Arabs later reneged, and the British stripped 80% of Palestine away from the Jews to create Trans-Jordan, despite the fact that all "Palestine" had been designated as a Jewish National Home.

Sharif of Mecca, Hussein bin-Ali, formally endorsed the Balfour Declaration in the Treaty of Sèvres of 10 August 1920, along with the other Allied Powers, as new King of Hedjaz. Ezer Weizmann continued to maintain that the treaty was still binding. In 1947 Weizmann explained : "A postscript was also included in this treaty. This postscript relates to a reservation by King Feisal that he would carry out all the promises in this treaty if and when he would obtain his demands, namely, independence for the Arab countries.

"I submit that these requirements of King Feisal have at present been realized. The Arab countries are all independent, and therefore the condition on which depended the fulfillment of this treaty, has come into effect. Therefore, this treaty, to all intents and purposes, should today be a valid document."

On Israel's Independence Day, UNESCO passed a resolution demanding that Israel disavow Jerusalem as its capital. This resolution is part of the ongoing Palestinian campaign to delegitimize Israel in the international arena and disseminate false history and libel against the State of Israel. It ignores the continuous Jewish presence in the Land of Israel throughout the past 2,000 years - as documented in this new Jerusalem Center video.

 In her, "The British Foreign Office Remains True to Type," writer Melanie Phillips characterizes the problem with Britain's government being asked to renounce the Balfour Declaration by the "Palestinians" still today:
The Palestinians have been demanding that the British government apologise for the 1917 Balfour Declaration which supported “the establishment in Palestine of a national home for the Jewish people”. This declaration was embodied in the 1922 Mandate under which Britain accepted the administration of Palestine and the obligation to settle the Jews there...
... in the 1930s, the British actually reneged on the Mandate, betrayed the Jewish people and instead of settling them in Palestine kept them out during the Holocaust.
British writer, Melanie Phillips
The assumption is that this is a conflict over the division of land between two peoples with legitimate claims to that land. This is untrue. It is an Arab war of extermination against the Jewish homeland. What’s more, Britain patented this so-called solution in 1937 when it offered to carve out of Palestine a state for the Arabs alongside one for the Jews. This two-state offer has been subsequently repeated several times. In each case the Jews agreed but the Arabs merely responded by war, terror and the mass murder of yet more Jews.
That’s because their agenda, the destruction of Israel, is non-negotiable. By definition, there can be no compromise with a non-negotiable agenda. The very act of negotiation is a signal of surrender. Britain would never urge a compromise with al Qaeda or Isis.
So why doesn’t it recognise the analogous threat to Israel? At root it’s because the British don’t regard the Jews as a nation. They don’t therefore understand that the Jews have the only legitimate political claim to the land. Today’s Foreign Office is thus in line with the British diplomat who said in 1938 that the Arabs and Jews were “each as loathsome as each other”. The Balfour Declaration was the high-water mark of British decency towards the Jewish people. It’s been downhill all the way, Mrs May, ever since.

After "Team Israel" opened historic Spring for Zionism, Yesha advocate calls balls and strikes at AIPAC Conference

AIPAC highlights administration's pro-Zionism but downplays Zionist milestones; Judea/Samaria advocates hold separate conference; Leftist Jewish IfNotNow augments anti-Zionist protests, encourages the ferocity of IslamoMarxist protesters against Jewish Defence Leaguers, 2 of whom now pursue criminal defenses against charges.

Excerpted from AIPAC 2017 by Yishai Fleisher in The Jerusalem Post 4/11/17
Yishai Fleisher interviewed
by JooTube at AIPAC
"Here I am again reporting on what I saw at the massive gathering of Jews and Israel lovers the AIPAC Policy Conferencein Washington, DC.

An Awesome Gathering:  Indeed, in terms of numbers AIPAC did not disappoint as 19,000 participants showed up, 4,000 of whom were school and university age, and bringing them all together is no small feat.

 The atmosphere was electric when US Vice President Mike Pence spoke and the crowd went wild when the new US ambassador to the UN, Nikki Haley, told the packed Verizon Center that “there’s a new sheriff in town.”

(Excerpts from Vice President Mike Pence's address)

But for me, the real magic was at night, after the official program had ended. Young Jews gathered in bar events run by organizations like Zionist Organization of America (ZOA), The Israel Project (TIP), Stand With Us, Israeli American Council, Students Supporting Israel (SSI) and Young Jewish Conservatives, among others. Beer was flowing, business cards were exchanged, hearts were opening – and the huge ocean that divides Israeli Jews and American Jews dried up like the Red Sea on Passover.

Rabbi Lionel Rosenfeld of Marble Arch Synagogue in London hailed the Trump Administration's alignment with Zionism and hoped American Zionists activism might set an example for British Jewish leadership.

While the physical gathering itself was inspiring, the messaging of it was, in my eyes, less so. You might have thought this year’s 50th anniversary of the miraculous Six Day War and the triumphant reunification of Jerusalem would have been the overarching theme of the conference. The Six Day War did get a few honorable mentions, including a outstanding movie clip from Christian Broadcast Network, but that’s it. While we all remember the famous AIPACian phrase “Jerusalem will always remain the eternal undivided capital of Israel,” this year the motto was noticeably absent.

The neglect of unified Jerusalem at AIPAC was made even more conspicuous in light of the Trump administration’s exploration of moving the US embassy to the City of Gold. But while there was no finer moment to make an appeal to move the embassy than the giant annual pro-Israel gathering in Washington on the 50th year of reunification, alas, the issue was dropped.

Balfour - Not Dead, But Buried:  Yet another theme which was amazingly absent at AIPAC was the 100th anniversary of the Balfour Declaration of 1917.
The key document to the birth of the State of Israel is celebrating its first centennial, precisely as Israel’s international legitimacy is being threatened. Yet the instrument of American pro-Israelism, AIPAC, neglected to so much as mention Balfour.

Post-Wikileaks revelations, lifelong Democrat urges uniting under Trump administration; 'Far-Left dominated Democratic Party no longer Jews' home'- Principal argues

Alan Bergstein argues Florida's liberal Sun-Sentinel biases the electorate
When liberal pro-Obama and pro-Clinton speakers appeared at Delray, Florida's Vizcaya 
community "The Forum,"   attendance reached into the hundreds. Cars overflowed the parking lot, extending outside the community's gates. However, when lifelong Democrat-turned-independent, Alan Bergstein, 83, appeared as part of "The Forum" civics lecture series on April 5th, only about 30 (rather than 200) people attended.

Mr. Bergstein, an independent who encourages patriotic Americans to re-unify under the legitimately elected Pres. Donald Trump cautions other lifelong Democrats to reconsider their reflex support of the now, Leftist dominated Democratic National Committee platforms and candidates. He is introduced by Steve West, The Forum's manager in this talk.

We asked Mr. Bergstein, a retired Bronx, NYC middle-school principal, to explain what about his remarks the audience (which is offered an open mic to address him with questions) elected to avoid. Mr. Bergstein is concerned that the Left-wing ascension within the Democrat National Committee party leadership is an issue the audience shies from having to be presented with. Here is his response:

Sr. Rabbi Lionel Rosenfeld, Marble Arch Syn., London, UK
Rabbi Lionel Rosenfeld, senior rabbi at London's Marble Arch Synagogue told JewTube.Info "I have the honor of being the only British Orthodox rabbi at AIPAC for the second year running. And I do it so I can get a fix and tell my congregation what it's like to hear 18,000 people to sing the Hatikvah and root for the vice-president. We need it in London. London is so wishy-washy when it comes to Zionism. We need this." In a message for the British Board of Deputies, Rosenfeld says, "Stand-up stronger for Israel and for the Jewish people. Don't keep your heads below the parapet."

The violent anti-Israel demonstrations in France and Canada have warranted the organizing and deploying of Jewish self-defenders.
IfNotNow Jewish Leftists closed the Convention entryway
At the past 2 years' AIPAC Conferences, well-organized Socialist and Islamist groups protested intimidatingly, impeding the ingress and egress of conference attendees and starting fights (including with sign-sticks) against the small number of Jews who came outside to defend their honor before the news and social-media influencer cameras.

Muslims' menacing, violence
This year, the Toronto, Canada-based Jewish Defence League organized a counter-presence to clear a path and deter violence against Zionists from militant anti-Zionists. While the J.D.L. group, led by Meir Weinstein, was outnumbered exponentially by the aggressive anti-Israel protesters, they would not be intimidated by physical threats and did, in fact, combat force with greater force. 

For unknown reasons, the D.C. police did not separate the aggressive crowd of Israel-haters from J.D.L. When their comrades Ram Lubranicki and reformed-Palestinian Sandra Solomon were hit and menaced, JDL'ers caught and punished Kamal Nayfeh, 55. In JewTube.Info's exclusive interview, Sandra Solomon recounts Nayfeh's menacing her and theft of her Palestinian flag. Israeli-Canadian Yosef Steynovitz, 29, and Israeli-American Ram Lubranicki, 59, were arrested (no Muslims were arrested) and charged by D.C. police (respectively) with felony assault and misdemeanor assault. The men are accepting donations for their legal defense.

While the information and dialogue presented by politicians and experts to the AIPAC-amassed Zionists, protesters were closed-minded to the reasoned information and arguments the few Zionist attendees attempted to dialogue with them. Organized antagonists and hostile provocations resulted in D.C. police restricting ingress and egress to the attendees.

Prof. Mordechai Kedar demystifies the Middle East on Capitol Hill- via pro-Israel think-tank, E.M.E.T.

Dr. Mordechai Kedar addresses Capitol Hill staffers via EMET
Dr. Mordechai Kedar, a lecturer at Bar-Ilan University in Israel, explored the various factors that play a role in shaping the events of the region in this talk to to legislative staffs on on Capitol Hill, February 13, 2017. The event “Why is it so Difficult to Understand the Middle East” was organized by E.M.E.T. (Endowment for Middle East Truth) in Washington, D.C. 

The Islamic State continues to control large areas of Syria and Iraq, Russia's footprint in Syria has increased with its support for Assad, and Iran is continuing to back the Assad regime, and Hezbollah. At the same time, Saudi Arabia and Iran are supporting opposing factions in Lebanon, Iraq, Syria, and Bahrain. And the Syrian civil war has resulted in the death of nearly 500,000 people. Why is the violence in the Muslim and Arab world escalating? What is the Western world missing about the cultures of the Middle East? 


"The creation of an artificial Palestinian state requiring the uprooting of Jewish families where no Arab population currently exists would lead to indefensible borders for the Jewish homeland,” says Kedar on his website. He also denies the argument that the populations can be moved, claiming "today Arabs live within the state of Israel and in Gaza, Judea and Samaria. These Arab population centers are not going away and neither is the State of Israel.”

Sarah Stern explains how E.M.E.T. is unique in pro-Israel advocacy

Sarah Stern, founder of Washington think-tank, Endowment for Middle East Truth, explains how her organization's positions and work compare to that of A.I.P.A.C. on Capitol Hill. One way E.M.E.T differs is in presenting the case against founding an Islamist, Jew-hating state alongside Israel. According to Mrs. Stern, "EMET believes that we should stop aiding the P.A. now. We actually felt since '1993 when, after signing the Oslo Accords, that Arafat went on TV in Jordan and said "this is the "peace of the brave," akin to what the prophet Mohammed signed with the tribe of Koresh. And he made them vulnerable and then eviscerated them. The problem is now that there have been 23 years when the P.A. has used every means possible to indoctrinate their people to hate and to kill Israelis." for 23-years, the believes that AIPAC policy is too influenced by appealing to Democrat donors, rather than reflecting the Likud-led, Israeli government positions.

Should Jews be mocking Hitler and the Nazis - documentary "The Last Laugh" explores

Mel Brooks' Nazi imitations aggrandize him but
do they weaken the taboo against anti-Semitism?
Jewish TV & filmmakers may have the right to exceed taboos - but should they, and should they be rewarded for it glamorizing it? Do Jewish shock-comics legitimizing dark-humor help or hurt our crusade to quell anti-Semitism?

'The Last Laugh' asks if there's anything taboo in comedy anymore" Review in the L.A. Times 
by Kenneth Turan, March 19, 2017
At times haphazard but always involving, "The Last Laugh" confronts a question that sounds anachronistic in today's anything-goes world: Are there any taboos remaining in humor, areas where making jokes is simply beyond the pale? 
Though documentarian Ferne Pearlstein (who photographed and edited as well as directed) deals briefly with potentially forbidden areas like 9/11 and even child molestation (the subject of a Louis CK routine), most of the film focuses on jokes about Hitler and the Holocaust, a subject that elicits as many opinions — and jokes — as there are interview subjects.  Those speaking up include Larry Charles — involved in everything from "Seinfeld" to the features of Sacha Baron Cohen — and Israeli novelist Etgar Keret, the son a Holocaust survivor, who notes that "humor is the weapon of the weak." 
One of the most involving voices in the film turns out to be Mel Brooks, whose vision of "Hitler on Ice" from "History of the World, Part I" opens the film.  ...  he  (Brooks) also has some thoughtful things to say about why he can do Hitler jokes but not ones about the Holocaust. Rob Reiner agrees. 
Mel Brooks as Torquemada sings "The Spanish Inquisition"
Mel Brooks broke the public taboo on joking about Jew-hatred, showing gallow-locked Jews singing in "The Spanish Inquisition" musical number in his "History of the World Part 1," and creating empathy for Franz Kiebkind and his other singing and dancing Nazi characters in The Producers' "Springtime for Hitler."

But do comedians' making light of anti-Semitic atrocities diminish the taboo against Jew-hatred to the gentile public?

Do they weaken the societal taboo deterrent against Jew-hatred? Is anyone who behaves tyrannically now a "Hitler?" Does the "Soup Nazi" reflect a now mundane adjective- and diminish Nazi-ism and its victims?

The Last Laugh
claims to explore the issue, but as a public-figure objecting to comics' (even Jewish ones) making Nazi & Holocaust fun shows only Rabbi Abraham Foxman, former Anti-Defamation League executive director.

Silverman, Jon Stewart, and comics like Amy Schumer have popularized "Jewy" as an acceptable disparaging adjective. Being perceived as Jewy is now an acceptable anti-Semitic criticism, without equal in, for example, African-American identity. 

At L.A. Jewish Film Festival screening of The Last Laugh, (l - r) USC's Marty Kaplan,
Renee Firestone, director Ferne Pearlstein, and writer Robert Edwards engage audience questions

L.A. Jewish Film Festival's screening in Beverly Hills this weekend featured Renee Firestone, one of just a few concentration-camp survivors commenting in the movie (Hogan's Heroes' Cpl. LeBeau-actor, Robert Clary being another), claiming that having survived to approaching 93-years of age in the midst of the Allies defeat of the Axis powers shows that she (and thereby, we) has "the last laugh." But Jew-hatred (demonstrated online) is strong throughout the world and Jews deluding we already have the last-laugh are avoiding our need to still fight it, socially, politically, and physically- and through other means than the liberally politicized A.D.L. 

We spoke with the filmmakers after the post-screening discussion.  

"The Last Laugh" is an intellectual exploration in whether Jewish comedians go too far. But it reflects the weakening taboo (and deterrence) against anti-Semitic attitudes, statements, and conduct which may grow among the gentile public who may see it on TV.
