Buttigieg's Butting in, Not Trump

Democratic presidential candidate calls US recognition of Golan ‘interference’ in Israeli politics
Pete Buttigieg, the mayor of South Bend, Ind., and a candidate for the Democratic nomination for president in 2020, denounced on Tuesday U.S. President Donald Trump’s official recognition of Israel’s sovereignty over the Golan Heights as an “interference” in the State of Israel and its politics.
No surprise, but the American Democratic Left is totally fokokt wrong, yet again. Pete Buttigieg, the mayor of South Bend, Indiana, and one of the recent presidential wannabes doesn't understand simple terminology.

Interference is the noun of interfere:
interfereverb [ I ]B2 to involve yourself in a situation when your involvement is not wanted or is not helpful:
 UK  /ˌɪn.təˈfɪər/ US  /ˌɪn.t̬ɚˈfɪr/
That means when a foreign government, leader, NGO etc. affirms, recognizes, states agreement with a policy of another country, that isn't interference. But when a foreign government, leader, NGO etc. insists on a contradictory policy to that of a sovereign country, that is interference.

For example U.S. President Donald Trump’s official recognition of Israel’s sovereignty over the Golan Heights shows proper diplomatic support and respect for the State of Israel, in contrast to the interference in internal Israeli affairs of Buttigieg who won't recognize Israel’s sovereignty over the Golan Heights.

Trump's official recognition of Jerusalem as Israel's Capital City shows proper respect for the State of Israel, while foreign governments, leaders, NGOs etc. who refuse to recognize Jerusalem as Israel's Capital City are exhibiting interference in Israel's basic policies.

We Israelis are enjoying the fact that for the first time in the History of the State of Israel, the United States of America has a pro-Israel President.

Buttigieg doesn't know bupkis.

Pete Buttigieg, like all [or almost all]
of the other Democratic candidates
for USA President in year 2020,
would like to see the world’s only
Jewish state wiped-off-the-map, and
replaced by the fanatically-anti-American
terrorist state of Palestine.

Would President Pete Buttigieg accept
the two million Jewish refuges that
would result from the destruction of
the world’s only Jewish state?
Probably not, because Jews are not
Politically Correct; only Blacks,
Mexicans, Arabs, Muslims and Gays
are Politically Correct.

Would the European Union accept
the two million Jewish refuges
that would result from the destruction
of the world’s only Jewish state?
Probably not, because Jews are
not Politically Correct; only Blacks,
Mexicans, Arabs, Muslims and Gays
are Politically Correct.

Even if Jews escaped to Europe,
they would exist there as a
constantly persecuted minority.

Pete Buttigieg and all the other enemies
of Israel and Jews should drop-dead
and go-to-Hell, the sooner the better.

despite being the most moral and professional
army in the Middle East is very strange.”

Andrés Spokoiny (CEO of Jewish Funders Network) said:

“As a community, we are mostly Jewishly illiterate, and we maintain few specifically Jewish practices. When we engage in social causes and call it Tikkun Olam, we often use that term to invoke Jewish values and concepts without ever quite exploring them.”

“Today, tikkun olam is part of modern, liberal discourse, even though its popularized connotation has little to do with its traditional meaning.”

===================================
Tikkun Olam” has, in recent years, become the buzz phrase of American Jewish progressives. “Let us take care of the poor and downtrodden,” proponents say, “whether they are in our backyard or anywhere around the world — for that is what the Torah wants us to do.” To the advocates of “tikkun olam,” this Hebrew phrase has come to mean “healing the world.”

But if you read the actual text, you’ll see that the phrase means ensuring that the execution of law does not result in a disintegration of society. And in Jewish mystical texts, the phrase connotes a reconciliation between the spiritual and material worlds.

Evelyn Gordon (a journalist living in Israel) said:

...Jewish Leftists have spent decades trying to conflate tikkun olam with a particular set of Progressive policies, such that anyone opposing those policies ipso facto opposes tikkun olam.

And as evidenced by that speaker’s choice of words,
they have succeeded: Even thir Jewish opponents now view
tikkun olam as a “Leftist Progressive ideology.”

But by appropriating tikkun olam as their own exclusive property, Leftists have discredited the entire concept…

You're being optimistic. Do you think there would be that many Jewish survivors if, Gd forbid, the terrorists took over?
