<<<We the Jews are guilty as well in murdering “Di Goldene Medine” in America>>>
This publication is for those who are concerned with the sad state of our nation but unaware that our religious leaders (Jewish and Christians) – not our politicians – are mostly guilty. Our politicians have done what they are doing by their nature – delegating the power to themselves by crushing the power of us the people. Our religious leaders failed to do what they must do by their presumed connections to God – to defend the power of us the people in the name of God.
“Di Goldene Medina” as the America’s founding principles
Medinah made it into the Yiddish lexicon, to refer to a land, not specifically a political state. America, the preferred destination for Eastern European emigrants with its famed streets paved with gold, was called Di Goldene Medine.
“Di Goldene Medine” in English is the Land of great opportunities to be realized with the Torah guidance in its multiple interpretations.
All multiple Torah’s interpretations have one common foundation with the following morality traits:
Some Almighty Power, what we call God, created all of us “In His Own (Unique) Image and likeness” as unique individuals who are reaching their individual heights and helping the others to do so without harming the others in any way – “do not do to the others what you do not want to be done to you.” And the Jews have lived this way.
Of course, the antisemitism in the USA did not disappear, but in “Di Goldene Medine” the Jews had the equal rights in defending themselves, and they have done this.
Of course, not all schools and businesses in the USA wanted to take the Jews, but in “Di Goldene Medine” the Jews had the equal rights to build their own schools, universities, businesses, hospitals, etc., and they have done all that.
And the Jews, with their understanding of the duties of the Chosen people, were trying to help the other communities – by example – to live “In His Own Image and likeness” as unique individuals and communities.
Many traditional Chistian denominations lived the same Judeo-Christian way in “Di Golden Medina.”
“Di Golden Medina” is the “Land of Opportunities”
The USA nation was founded on the Bible-rooted virtues of the Ten Commandments and their historic tailoring to constantly changing life circumstances. Although the founding virtues were brought to this nation by religious people, these Judeo-Christian virtues were for all – the church goers and atheists, for poor and rich, for ordinary people and their leaders. The Church-Government Constitutional separation was made to prevent the Church oligarchy from ruling the government, as was the case in Europe, – it was made not for the purpose of separating the Judeo-Christian national morality/virtues from the national governance.
From “Di Goldene Medina” and “Land of Opportunities” to the totalitarian slavery
The USA was founded on the Bible-rooted virtues of the Ten Commandments and their historic tailoring to constantly changing life circumstances. Although the founding virtues were brought to this nation by religious people, these Judeo-Christian virtues were for all – the church goers and atheists, for poor and rich, for ordinary people and their leaders. The Church-Government Constitutional separation was made to prevent the Church oligarchy from ruling the government, as was the case in Europe, – it was made not for the purpose of separating the Judeo-Christian national morality/virtues from the national governance.
As it is described in the Torah, among the humans there are the totalitarians, with the urge to become the human Gods that is to have an absolute power over the people. And the America’s 20th century with the Great Depression, WWII, and the Cold War was the opportune time for the American totalitarians.
The American totalitarians have presented themselves as the defenders of the selected communities from the imaginary assaults of the non-selected, and they convinced many that such defense requires replacing the “God-given” individual freedoms and responsibilities by the government power that is needed to “defend us.”
The list of those whom the totalitarian government “must defend” is endless, and here are some examples: defending the poor from the rich, the blacks from the whites, the immigrants from the traditional Americans, the ordinary citizens from the police, the children from the parents, the atheists from the churchgoers, the homeless from the homeowners, the shoppers from the sellers, the climate from the people … and this list is always increasing!
And they created an enormous-size government to police all that.
Failure of Jewish, and Christian, leaders to defend the Judeo-Christian national morality
Nowadays, the USA is in the state of upheaval because it betrayed its founding national morality/virtues – the virtues of the Bible-guided Ten Commandments, – and many Jews and Rabbis are participants in this betrayal.
The majority of Orthodox Jews and Rabbis isolated themselves from the Judeo-Christian America and absolved themselves from acting to help the nation live by God’s guidance as they must be doing as the Chosen people.
The majority of Reform Jews and Rabbis entrusted the work of the Chosen people to the “progressive” political entities with the totalitarian urge such as the Democrat Party, BLM, American Civil Liberties Union, Americans United for the Separation of Church, Human Rights Campaign, etc.
Most of the non-affiliated Jews were on the “right” site of the politics and leaned to the groups supporting the individual rights and responsibilities.
I am sure many Christians may apply what I have said about the Jews also to their religious leaders and communities.
