Does HIAS Promote Anti-Jewish Immigration Into Israel?

Not so much. HIAS is greatly concerned with the security of the Jewish state. As for the security of gentile states, it seems not so much.

COMMENT: Now, it is true that HIAS indeed has a section on its website related to Israel. After clicking on a couple of links, the following information is provided:

HIAS in Israel

Today, now that the Israeli government and the Jewish Agency have assumed full responsibility for immigration and absorption of olim, HIAS is using our expertise to help the country develop a humane admission system for refugees and asylum seekers that adheres to international legal standards and protects the security of the state. According to UNHCR, there are 55,000 refugees in Israel: roughly 36,000 from Eritrea, 15,000 from Sudan, and 4,000 from other African countries.

Assistance to Individual Refugees in Israel

HIAS meets with individuals and families (mostly from Eritrea and Sudan) to help them evaluate options for reuniting with family in other countries, including the United States, Canada, Italy, Australia, Switzerland, and Sweden.

So while refugee resettlement lies at the heart of HIAS’ work in the U.S., it is not a priority for HIAS in Israel. In israel, HIAS is merely willing to meet with the African refugees to help them reunite with their family in western countries, but not to help them resettle in the Zionist state. There are no appeals by rabbis telling the Knesset to keep Israel’s doors open for the refugees, urging them to prioritize refugee resettlement, protection, and human rights. No pre drafted personal letter to send to their Member of the Knesset.

So much for being guided by history and the Jewish value of “welcoming the stranger.”

If you’re looking for a clue that explains this difference, HIAS itself reveals it in the following:

HIAS is using our expertise to help [Israel] develop a humane admission system for refugees and asylum seekers that adheres to international legal standards and protects the security of the state.

I looked all over, but I couldn’t find a similar qualifier for HIAS’ work in the US.

Who Backs Trump?

Peggy Noonan writes: Normally a new president has someone backing him up, someone publicly behind him. Mr. Obama had the mainstream media—the big broadcast networks, big newspapers, activists and intellectuals, pundits and columnists of the left—the whole shebang. He had a unified, passionate party. Mr. Trump in comparison has almost nothing. The mainstream legacy media oppose him, even hate him, and will not let up. The columnists, thinkers and magazines of the right were mostly NeverTrump; some came reluctantly to support him. His party is split or splitting. The new president has gradations of sympathy, respect or support from exactly one cable news channel, and some websites.
He really has no one but those who voted for him.
Do they understand what a lift daily governance is going to be, and how long the odds are, with so much arrayed against him, and them?

Why Do Jewish Organizations Want Anti-Israel Refugees? II

Comments at Unz.com:

* I have a theory for the behaviour of Jewish Liberal elites: they believe in liberalism.

I also have a theory for the behaviour of non-Jewish Liberal elites: they believe in liberalism.

* The problem is that the ethnic strategy is not conscious. It’s not like Jews discuss the possibilities and decide a rational policy to reduce the risks, instead it’s just Jews share a certain attitude based on their shared ethnic history and consciousness as filtered down over the generations, which will lead to overwhelming support for certain policies among them. Since it’s not rationally thought out, the policies they support might not actually be beneficial.

…The other possibility is the backlash by whites. I’d wager that if a white minority of 35-40% suddenly goes racially/ethnically conscious and espouses a National Socialist-like ideology, then they might actually regain control over their lands. I mean, 35% might be enough to win a however bloody civil war (especially since the 60-65% will still be divided into many small groups mutually hating each other), after which brutal ethnic cleansing will no longer be out of the question. If a National Socialist-like white leadership (with only 35% whites in the country) wins a Syria- or Lebanon-like (only much bloodier) civil war, it might easily become possible to commit mass murder on a previously unimaginable scale. Once you murder a quarter or more of your population, Jews will be a rounding error there. And given attitudes towards Jews among the racially conscious whites…

Moreover, both scenarios will not only imply governments that are extremely dangerous to Jews, they will also imply fanatical governments obsessed with Jews and/or Israel. The Muslim takeover scenario will involve governments which might view Israel as a central problem (Muslims in Malaysia etc. are known to have espoused the Palestinian problem), while the Late National Socialist revival will mean bloody civil wars, after which going after Jews and Israel will seem like a minor thing to do. (That’s very unlike how a NS government would behave if it just came to power in a still ethnically homogenous country. Such a government would have incentives not to risk the prosperity of its people by risking a conflict with a nuclear armed Israel. Besides, I think a NS government in the absence of mass immigration would be basically impossible.)

Therefore, Jews currently are supporting a policy which might actually create the very dangers (either if whites submit and convert to Islam, or if they turn to the very hard right) that they are trying to escape.

What is a third scenario for the endgame of multiculturalism? Is there one? I would like some civic nationalism, but it’s basically impossible for civic nationalism to turn the tide of white dispossession, it can merely slow it down. So what next?
