Liberal Rabbi Continues Secular Humanist Hatred For All Things Christian And Tim Tebow

Rabbi Joshua Hammerman, in tooting his own horn as loudly as he knows how, boasts that he is the winner of the Rockover Award (which just so happens to be “the highest honor in Jewish journalism,” by the way).  And his columb appears regularly in New York Jewish Week.

Here is his latest and greatest wise musing:

“If Tebow wins the Super Bowl, against all odds, it will buoy his faithful, and emboldened faithful can do insane things, like burning mosques, bashing gays and indiscriminately banishing immigrants. While America has become more inclusive since Jerry Falwell’s first political forays, a Tebow triumph could set those efforts back considerably.”

I mean, you could literally sing those lyrics to the tune, “If Hitler hadn’t killed six million Jews, the world would have been a much worse place.”

Interestingly, our Rabbi is a coward.  He delected those words from his blog, oh, much the way the Daily Kos deleted from its site allegations that Sarah Palin was faking her pregnancy with son Trig because the baby was really Brittany’s by incestuous relationship with her father (and Sarah’s husband).

The hatemongering continued until it was revealed that Bristol was herself pregnant – and that it was therefore biologically impossible that she could have been pregnant with Trig.  At which time the Daily Kos purged their site.  They didn’t apologize, they just slunk away like the despicable and vile cowards that they have always been.

When the going gets tough, you can always trust liberals to change their story.  Unless they can delete it and claim they never said it to begin with.

You would think of ALL people, Jews would have learned the lesson about such hateful demonization.

You would also think that a rabbi who says that Christians are so damn intolerant and hateful would think about how hypocritical he was being when he made such a despicable statement.  He literally singles Tim Tebow out – whom I’m willing to bet has never said a hateful thing about Jews or about burning mosques in his life – and attributes fanatical and deragened hate to him and to those who root for him.

But not this Jew.  And not most liberal Jews for that matter – who continue to vote for Democrats and vote for the most profoundly anti-Israel president in American history.

Understand, this attack against Tim Tebow and the Christianity said Tim Tebow believes in is just another in a long series of leftist attacks.

Now, understand, I am a fierce supporter of Israel.  Which is to say that I am FAR more pro-Israel than most American Jews (for the record, there are all KINDS of American liberal Jews who regard Israel and their fellow Jews who live there with naked contempt).  For too many liberal American Jews, the subject of “the Jewish state” is met with embarassed silence.  And liberal Democrat Jews continue to believe that liberal Jews don’t much care about Israel.  Hopefully that is changing as more American Jews understand that Barack Obama represents an existential threat to Israel that is frankly worse than the threat of Iran (and that because it frankly doesn’t matter who their enemies are if America remains her steadfast friend).

Norman Podhoretz writes a thoroughly-researched book in which we find him “maintaining that Democratic attitudes toward Israel range from unsympathetic to passionately hostile while the Republicans, with some exceptions, have been solidly to fervently supportive since the end of the 1967 Six-Day War.”

A review of Podhoretz’s book, “Why Jews Are Liberals” has this to say:

Yet, in terms of Israel support, there were reasons to think 2008 would be a good year for the GOP. John McCain’s long history of sympathy with Israel should have given him an advantage over Barack Hussein Obama, whose history consisted of associating with enemies of the Jewish state like the unapologetic bigot Rev. Jeremiah Wright.

Nevertheless, proving Pod’s assertion that Statist “Jews” have not cared about Israel/Judaism for decades, Obama beat Mr. McCain among Jewish voters by roughly a 70-30 ratio. Obama did far better with Jews than with any other ethnic/religious group, sans blacks, and Podhorertz relays some stats:

The Jewish vote for him was 25 points higher than the 53% he scored with the electorate as a whole; 35 points higher than the 43% he scored with whites; 11 points higher than the 67% he scored with Hispanics; 33 points higher than the 45% he scored with Protestants; and 24 points higher than the 54% he scored with Catholics.

In his closing paragraphs, Podhoretz clarifies a final time:

“The social, political and moral system that liberals wish to transform is the very system in and through which Jews found a home such as they had never discovered in all their forced wanderings tyhroughout the centuries over the face of the earth.”

We fundamentalist Christians – unlike liberal Jews – stand strongly besides Israel and we vow to stand WITH Israel.  Even to our own hurt.  And the interesting thing is that this uberliberal rabbi implicitly affirms that.  It’s not Jews that we’re going to target if Tebot wins the Super Bowl; no sir, we’re going to burn down all the mosques and target every single immigrant BUT Jews.

At suppose that’s an improvement from this hypocrite hater; he could have accused us of hating on Jews, too.

I use the term “Judeo-Christian” to understand my faith.  I believe that Messiah Jesus fulfilled the Old Testament and said that every jot and tittle of it would ultimately be fulfilled.  That means that there is a place for Jews and a place for national Israel in God’s kingdom.  And with my fellow evangelical Christians, I eagerly wait to see that day when God brings all of His people together.  And I continue to stand up in vocal support of the state of Israel and call for America to defend God’s chosen people against her mortal enemies until that blessed day the prophets anticipated comes to pass.

That faith is far stronger than Rabbi Joshua Hammerman’s hate and bigotry.  So my attitude toward Israel and toward faithful Jews does not change so much as a single degree.

  1. A Jew Says:

    Hey, just remember he doesn’t represent all Jews. Most are staunchly Republican. Except for the New Yorkers for god knows why…

  2. Michael Eden Says:

    A Jew,

    I completely agree and completely disagree.

    As to your first point, I completely agree. I tried to state my own support of Jews and national Israel. I consider myself a “Judeo-Christian,” and I believe that the New Testament is no more the Word of God than the Old Testament of the Bible. I stand with the Jews, and i stand with Israel.

    I can’t say that strongly enough. And I don’t mind having to say it again and again as necessary.

    Don’t you be worried, A Jew. No matter how many vile “rabbis” might show up and spout hate, we true Christians will continue to stand by Jews and stand by Israel.

    But most Jews are NOT Republicans in America; they are Democrats. So I completely disagree with you on that one.

    For example:

    Exit Polls: Nearly 80 Percent of Jews Voted for Obama
    Senator Obama won 77-78 percent of the Jewish vote, according to exit polls, continuing the trend of three previous elections.
    By Tzvi Ben Gedalyahu
    First Publish: 11/5/2008, 9:07 AM

    Democratic Senator Barack Obama won 77-78 percent of the Jewish vote, according to exit polls, continuing the trend of three previous elections. Republican Senator John McCain won only 22 percent of the Jewish vote.

    The most hotly contested state for the Jewish vote was Florida, where Sen. Obama was declared the winner shortly after midnight, carrying the heavily Jewish-populated area of Miami-Dade County with 58 percent of the vote. He is the second Democratic presidential candidate to win the state since 1976.

    Nationwide, Sen. Obama began the summer with Jewish support estimated as low as 60 percent in the wake of fears concerning his Muslim background and his statement of being willing to talk with Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad.

    A well-oiled political machine coupled with massive support from the liberal Jewish community catapulted him into a commanding lead outside non-Orthodox Jewish communities.

    Jews traditionally vote Democratic, but their support has ranged from a record 90 percent for Franklin D. Roosevelt in 1944 and Lyndon B. Johnson in 1964 to only 45 percent for Jimmy Carter in 1980.

    In 2004, Democratic presidential candidate John Kerry won 74 percent of the Jewish vote, and Al Gore won 70 percent of the vote in 2000.

    There is no question that Jews are and have been overwhelmingly Democrat.

    I hope you join with me in proclaiming that evangelical Christians are the Jews’ best friends in the world. And that we evangeicals who believe the prophecies given by God in His Word will stand up for Jews and for Israel as no one else – EVEN AMERICAN JEWS THEMSELVES – will do.

    And you sure won’t see evangelical Christians voting in record numbers for Obama and his Israel-targeting agenda.

    Fwiw, until Jimmy Carter and then Bill Clinton and now Barack Obama, there wasn’t a whole hell of a lot of difference between Republicans and Democrats in terms of Israel. Both Democrats and Republicans were staunch allies of Israel and friends to Jews. Harry Truman, in particular, demonstrated incredible courage and steadfastness in his unwavering support for Israel. I give him credit for that; and there is no doubt in my mind that Harry Truman, friend of Jews, is in heaven as we speak. And of course Richard Nixon, who made anti-Semitic remarks, stood full-bore behind Israel during the frightening 1973 Yom Kippur War, in which Israel was nearly overrun. As the Soveit Union prepared to intervene militarily, Nixon began a massive airlift and brought US nuclear forces to Defcon III (which matched the highest level of nuclear-war-readiness that the US has ever held) to signal that war with Israel was war with the United States. And Russia backed off.

  3. A Jew Says:

    Yeah, sometimes Christians are more understanding than our own. I think most American jews are democrats. I was talking population wise. Most Jews, speaking of Israeli jews mostly side with the republicans. Obama’s approval rating in Israel is awful, and Netanyahu is from a right wing party. But American Jews are the worst when it comes to Israel. They’ve become to accustomed to the security in America, they’ve forgotten how everyday our people are bombed from the Gaza strip.

  4. Michael Eden Says:

    A Jew,

    On your qualification, I completely agree with you.

    For instance:

    The number of Israelis who see US President Barack Obama’s policies as pro-Israel has fallen to four percent, according to a Smith Research poll taken this week on behalf of The Jerusalem Post.

    Versus:

    The May poll found that Israelis’ views of Obama’s predecessor in the White House, George W. Bush, were nearly the opposite. Some 88% of Israelis considered Bush’s administration pro-Israel, 7% said he was neutral and just 2% labeled him pro-Palestinian.

    Benjamin Netanyahu (whom I greatly admire) is clearly a Jew who would spend the rest of his life thanking G-d if Obama got booted out of office.

    There’s something about having your ass literally on the life-or-death line that makes you too smart to vote for liberals.

    There’s also the fact that the more deeply religious a Jew is, the more he agrees with evangelical Christians as a matter of general worldview.

  5. Mathematician Says:

    Sad that all my kids’ classmates; Jews, so-called Catholics, or Christians are overwhelmingly new democrats. I can’t help thinking and asking God why I should care if the American Jews didn’t give a darn? But then God alone matters, I care because I love God….

  6. Michael Eden Says:

    Mathematician,

    Jesus predicted that on the last day, there’d be a lot of surprised people who would find out that God saw right through their pseudo-religious “Christianity.”

    The Bible also predicts that, one day, soon, during the Tribulation, the Jewish people will finally see their Messiah and repent:

    “I will pour out on the house of David and on the inhabitants of Jerusalem, the Spirit of grace and of supplication, so that they will look on Me whom they have pierced; and they will mourn for Him, as one mourns for an only son, and they will weep bitterly over Him like the bitter weeping over a firstborn. — Zechariah 12:10

    It is those Jews whom I love in advance. And I believe the day of that prophecy being fulfilled is coming very quickly.

    And it is for that reason that I

    Pray for the peace of Jerusalem — Psalm 122:6

    For the record, I support Israel. And if American Jews don’t support Israel – as is very often the case – then I’m just not on the same page with American Jews.
