Jews would do well to wake up.
Democrats won't save us.
Republicans won't save us.
Candlelight vigils won't save us.
Save yourselves.

Somewhere Jabotinsky is shaking his head in disgust at our sectarian bickering and our pathetic weakness...
...Even bespectacled Jewish journalists can kick ass...
This story put a smile on my face today.
I hope you enjoy it.…
Gotta love Jews from Newark, New Jersey who fucked up Nazis...…
Jewish gangsters were, in fact, the most badass motherfuckers in organized crime during the first half of the twentieth century and, holy shit, did they whale on some Nazis...…
Meyer Lansky and his fellow Jewish gangsters would show up at Bund rallies and just fuck everyone up, leaving behind broken arms, legs, ribs, skulls, faces and teeth, but no corpses.…
Lucky Luciano offered to send some of his guys to help with this, but Meyer told him, “thanks, but no, this needs to be a Jewish fight.”…
We attacked them in the hall and threw some of them out the windows. Most of the Nazis panicked and ran out. We chased them and beat them up, and some of them were out of action for months. We wanted to show them that Jews would not always sit back and accept insults.”
Voting is great.
Candlelight vigils are nice.
Giving money to @HIASrefugees is fine.
But American Jews would do well to think about emulating the example of Meyer Lansky.
People will recoil in horror at the notion that I'm putting a Jewish mobster on a pedestal.
Don't we have better role models?
Abraham Joshua Heschel, who marched with Dr. King, for example?
When you get sworn into the IDF you are given a bible and a rifle.
Both are necessary.
Serious Question:

If a Nazi were to burst into your Synagogue on Yom Kippur packing an AR-15, who would you want sitting next to you - Abraham Joshua Heschel or Meyer Lansky?
To all the people saying "I don't want to live in a world where Jews need to be protected in synagogue by armed guards." I say "GROW UP"!

We live in a dangerous world whether you like it or not.
