This may seem like an odd topic to discuss in the face of many other important events at this time, but it has more of a role to play in deciding future events than many other things will in the near term future. With the state of Israel and the African Community more vulnerable than ever before, there are efforts to create divisions amongst the two groups that are not healthy or productive for world unity. Senator Chuck Schumer coming out against the impossible to accept Iran deal is only going to exacerbate this problem and fuel tensions with President Obama that spill into daily confrontations between the two minority groups. Like with many fights over white vs black and christian vs muslim and north vs south, the fight between Jews and Blacks is going to come into extreme prominence very soon. It’s already had some flares up in the past. Now with Schumer pitted against Obama on a major policy achievement of his administration, it’s going become an immediately disastrous affair that sees ruin and misery rise up in its place.
Anti semitism in Black community has always been there. The Russell Simmons horse carriage scandal is just the latest in a long series of it that span back decades in the making. It causes tensions and sees historically strong ties fray as a result of these divisive engagements. Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton have played off these fears before as Deray and others may well do so in the future. Even those such as Michael Jackson have stepped in it more than once in the past. As the influence of Israel on police brutality becomes more mainstream, more anti-semitism will be directed at Jews in response to their support of the police and their brutality on the community. This will cause more confrontations and make things worse. If this is a preview of what is to come, then the near term future is not good for these relations. I would hope that common sense could prevail, but emotion is clouding a lot of judgement and bad decisions will be by those reacting in anger to these actions. This will be pitted off by American Arab activists hoping to stretch the truth to advance their agenda. This will only be a short lived affair, but it isn’t going to be pleasant when the end comes about.
As the tensions rise in the black community, they will also rise on the corresponding side of the equation as well. Jewish racism is being fueled by anti-semitic actions, but also by actions that are being made in the Jewish community at large. Whether it’s poor treatment of black people in general, financing their oppressors, failing to provide justice for those in need, burning Christian churches or just being an outright bigot, Jewish people will not be able to hide from this truth for very much longer. From their treatment of the Palestinians to those not deemed worthy enough to claim the Jewish mantle, the rising tensions will force the Israeli government and American Jews in general to face up to very difficult realities. It’s coming to the forefront and they will have to address it in a very urgent manner. It must come from peaceful means to be effective, but the window for that opportunity is small and narrow. Act now or the opportunity will disappear into the horizon. Don’t lash out when these issues are coming to the forefront. Instead, embrace them as the promise of reform and change that will come about. Failure to do so may serve as the strike number three that does Israeli state legitimacy in for a lifetime.
When all of this is said and done, many losses will be sustained. As President Obama is taken down as a result of this poorly negotiated pact, he takes Senator Schumer down with him and destroys his dreams of being the Senate Democratic majority leader forever. Leaving the void open in the Democratic party with two of its major leaders eliminated will change the dynamic of the country forever. In its place will come a cleansing of moderate members in favor of leftist reform by those deemed to be far more radical than ever before. In some ways, this is for the best interests of the nation. However, the ruins that come about from this in fighting will leave long lasting feuds in place that will hurt jewish/black relationships for many years to come. It’s sad it’s come to this, but this is a long time in the making. When you make bad karma, you never know when disaster is finally coming to smack you in the face. It may not be the end of time to make a course correction, but my psychic hunch says that it’s unlikely we’ll see this occurring in the next few months. As a result of this chain of events, the relations between the two communities are ruined for a lifetime or more. Sorry to say it, but there’s a limit to the oppression that can be exhibited on both sides of the equation.
