Once in a While It Happens: A Jew Speaks the Truth
by David Sims
ONCE IN a while, the Jews themselves will affirm what they usually describe as “the anti-Semitic Jewish conspiracy theory.” Bari Weiss, a Jewish writer for the New York Times, is a recent case in point. In a recent NPR interview, she is quoted as saying:
The Jewish connection to the refugee is not a conspiracy. That’s something that we’re very, very proud of…. the most sacred of Jewish values, is the value of hachnasat orchim, of welcoming the stranger.
Weiss uses “conspiracy” to mean “a lie.” It’s a troublesome conflation of two different things. Conspiracies do happen. Often. In politics, they are the norm. In business, they are frequent. And a “conspiracy theory” is an attempt by an outsider to account for what the conspirators are up to. Sometimes, a conspiracy theory is false by intention. Sometimes, it’s a mistake, an honestly made error. But sometimes it is correct.
But aside from that minor semantic issue, Weiss has given support for what is often called the theory of a “Jewish conspiracy” to open the borders.
The thing you need to know, in order to really appreciate Weiss’s statement, is that the Jews don’t encourage non-Jewish Third World refugees to go to Israel. (Israel is known for sterilizing and deporting such migrants, though the big “mainstream” media, largely owned and run by Jews, won’t tell you that.) Jews encourage Third World migration only to the other countries in which they live. They don’t want to foul their own nest, but they have every intention of fouling everyone else’s.
The Jews act like guests in your home who take the liberty of inviting other people to come and live in your home, too. And if you question the propriety of what they’re doing, they’ll try to shame you by calling you an “anti-Semite,” a Jew-hater. The idea that the Jews have earned any hatred they get as a consequence of their own actions is also “anti-Semitism,” of course — according to Jews.
Here’s a transcription of the relevant NPR interview segment:
QUESTION: The social media posts associated with the suspect [Robert Bower] suggest that he was interested in conspiracy theories linking Jews to refugees. He was interested in the caravan that President Trump has blown up into a major national news story. I’d just like to ask you about your neighborhood and this synagogue in particular. What was the attitude that people there had toward refugees?
WEISS: Well, that’s the thing. The Jewish connection to the refugee is not a conspiracy. That’s something that we’re very, very proud of. The organization that Robert Bowers was constantly calling out is an organization called HIAS [Hebrew Immigrant Aid Society], which brought people, including Sergey Brin, to this country. It started in the 1880s to bring Jews who were fleeing the pogroms of Eastern Europe. Now they help Jews and non-Jews all over the world fleeing persecution. I met a man in Arizona on Sunday, a Jew from Cairo who was helped out of Egypt following the 1967 war. This synagogue exemplified those values. It participated in something called Refugee Shabbat. The previous Saturday, it was one of the participating synagogues nationally. And the concept, you know, as in all Jewish synagogues that reflect the most sacred of Jewish values, is the value of hachnasat orchim, of welcoming the stranger and especially of welcoming the weakest in our community, which – there’s no weaker category in our society than the refugee. And we’re really, really proud of that.
