A spectre is haunting today’s America – the spectre of Jew-hatred. As if suddenly out of nowhere, Americas Jews are encountering negative messages from the media, politicians and increasingly from the man in the street.

While it is still disguised in liberal speak more and more the language of anti-Semitism takes on respectability and acceptance by Gentile society.

In the meantime, Jewish leadership in America is confident if not secretly afraid of its fragile position in American society trusting in their efforts to create pseudo-religious and well-organised frameworks to preserve a dying Jewish presence in America.

Jews of America enjoy equal social status and economic comfort and at the same time a weakening of their ties to Judaism and Israel the Jewish state.

This state of affairs will lead to the disappearance of the Diaspora Jew in America. Heinrich Heines’ words express tragically Jewish feeling at heart for too many Jews in the United States when he said; “Judaism is a tragedy for Jews” Americas Jews inner strength lessens every day they stay in the diaspora and threatens their existence. While their leaders do not represent the urgent problems they are experiencing and will increasingly experience in the coming days. The Bankrupt leadership is incapable of breathing new life into the Diaspora when the vast majority of Americas Jews subconsciously recognise the shallowness of Jewish life in the U.S. and its retreat from authentic Judaism. Yes, today’s leaders will invest their time and energy in putting together never-ending conferences and meetings of no serious consequence, and all they accomplish are the empty words they speak at these futile gatherings.

The Judaism of these propagandists is merely philanthropic demanding nothing more than a shallow commitment to a fading Jewish vision. Fundraising campaigns and inter-faith dialogue has taken the place of real Zionism which means to immigrate to Israel and leave the Diaspora behind.

The majority of Americas Jews are not ready for this pure Zionism and prefer to see their children assimilate into the American culture and disappear forever having not realised their part in the Jewish mission. They are ignorant that living in Israel isn’t a matter of choice. It is the underlying bedrock of Torah.

Instead, they balance on the edge of a precipice that is America today an America that is preoccupied with creating a society racked with envy and entitlement these ideas are promoted by the New Marxists who are engaged in a desperate battle for social control where they will direct the lives of the citizens of America.

These Marxists believe the people have to be propagandised and bullied for their own good and they see no place for Jews in this New Nirvana let alone the Jewish State.

Jews are going to wake up one morning and find themselves no longer part of the American dream but rather recipients of the American nightmare.

They will find they are no longer who they thought they were no longer a respected part of American society, no longer welcome no longer human but now the other, the outlaw in society. Their crime to be Jewish a social pariah, a misfit an enemy of the new society.

After all this the one ray of sunlight on the horizon the American Exodus is about to burst on the scene, not since the Russian Aliyah of 1989 and 2006 will there have been a mass Return of our people on such an undreamt-of scale.

If you will it, it is no dream’ (Theodor Herzl)

Yosef Yigal Drever

Yosef Yigal Drever and Sylvia Drever co-founded Achdut HaLev in 2006 to reach out to the Jewish community's around the world providing support in learning Torah and promoting the 'Return of the Jewish people to the Land of Israel.' Yosef Yigal made Aliya in 2014 while Sylvia his wife is an Israeli. In late 2014 Achdut HaLev concentrated all its resources towards Aliya and the rebuilding of Eretz Yisrael. Excluding none and embracing all. The commandment to settle the Land of Israel is equal in importance to all the Torah Commandments all together: (Sifri Deut 12:29)
