Can Israeli society survive the loss of universal military service? Will the deregulation of Israel's kosher supervision spell the end of its Jewish character? And, speaking of Israel, what is it that makes its television dramas so good? Tyler Cowen discusses these and other subjects with EconTalk host Russ Roberts, new immigrant to Israel and unabashed fan of the Prisoners of War miniseries and Homer's Odyssey.Along the way, Roberts says that he is a big fan of open borders, except for Israel. He wants Israel to be a Jewish state.
His only explanation is that he says that Jews are being killed for being Jews, in the USA.
The argument that Jews are being killed is usually based on the Pittsburgh synagogue shooting and Poway synagogue shooting. Both shooters were Trump-haters. The latter only killed one Jew. The former announced his motives as “HIAS [Hebrew Immigrant Aid Society] likes to bring invaders in that kill our people. I can't sit by and watch my people get slaughtered. Screw your optics, I'm going in."
Okay, but it is not plausible that Roberts moved to Jerusalem to get away from anti-Jewish terrorism. More likely, he moved to get away from all the damage caused by him and his fellow open borders advocates bringing the Third World to the USA.
I am not accusing Roberts of being a hypocrite. I think that he is just pursuing perceived Jewish interests. I just point this out as an example of how Jews can have their own reasons for their leftist political opinions.
Jews are the most privileged ethnic group in America. They are also the leaders of many Leftist causes, from Communism to open borders. There is very little anti-Jewish sentiment, and what there is, it is almost entirely based their Leftist, pro-war, and Zionist political opinions.
Breitbart reports on denial of the crime.immigration link:
Italian Interior Minister Luciana Lamorgese has denied that migration had a role during the Milan News Year’s Eve sex attacks, despite several suspects being migrants, while others are second-generation immigrants.I think they mean first-generation citizens.
Interior Minister Lamorgese spoke about the New Year’s Eve attacks this week, remarking that it was wrong to link migration and violence. She said: “Those who have used violence are boys, second-generation citizens, Italians even by birth so I would not combine the immigration discourse with violence, which unfortunately also occurs on the part of Italian citizens.”
So yes, the crime is not all immigrants. A lot of it is the children of immigrants.
