What about all the other immigrants to the US with dual citizenship or are you just targeting the Jewish ones today?
This is argument does not hold merit.
Individuals who are American by birth, raised in the United States, spend every day of their youth pledging allegiance to the flag of the United
States and receive an education via the taxpayers of the United States qualify for dual US/Israeli citizenship simply due to the religious preference
of their mother.
Although Israel claims to be "democratic", only those who can prove matrilineal Jewish religious ancestory are able to claim the rights of Israeli
Super hypocrites are the Israelis.
NOT ONE other country on the face of this planet can claim those same rights.
Dual Israeli/US citizens are able to break criminal laws in the United States, laws that most certainly include a victim, but yet they can seek asylum
in Israel without the fear of extradition.
Yes, the OP was somewhat abrasive in delivery, but they did not, however, utter one false statement or "racist" statement.
You want to know why?
Because being Jewish is not belonging to a race.
It means that one practices a religion.
"Anti-semitism" is a rouse. Semitic refers to a group of languages.
Why do we Americans solely relate that term with Judaism?
Well, it could be the climate of political correctness being pushed by media/government outlets.
The number of people of the Jewish faith who hold positions of authority in government and entertainment are grossly disproportionate to the number
living within the United States when compared with other religious faiths.
Certain facts are undeniable.
The influence that Israeli policy has over the US is undeniable.
Influence that is due to their stranglehold on government and media.
S & F to the OP.
