Jews Might Be A Great Fit For China, Russia

What if Israel were destroyed? What if the USA turned hostile to Jews? What if Western Europe turned hostile to Jews? Jews could move to Russia and China. I know it sounds strange but they might be a good fit. I often tell people that converting to Judaism is more like joining a tribe than just switching religions.

Russia and China don’t have western notions of human rights. They wouldn’t fear Jews. They would limit and channel Jewish energies in ways that are productive for their host countries.

Russians and Chinese have a strong sense of their own identity and will respect Jews for their strong sense of a Jewish identity. Also, Jews are more likely to have respect for hosts who have a strong sense of identity. I’ve found that tribal Jews have respect for fellow ethnics, particularly East Asians, who put their own people first. Universalist Jews identify with universalist non-Jews and universalist values.

Israelis tend to have contempt for American naivety and generosity. Israelis regard Americans are easy to manipulate. By contrast, Koreans, Japanese and Chinese won’t put up with that manipulation. They could give a dead rat about the Holocaust. They don’t care about Jewish suffering. They are interested in Jewish success to the extent that they think they could learn from Jews and profit from partnerships with Jews.

If the United States abandoned Israel, Russia might become Israel’s ally.
