We asked Russell Roberts and Harold Meyerson.
What do President Donald Trump and the religious right see in each other?
The party of Trump is a far cry from the party of Reagan. The concern of the Trump base with immigration, like the language of “America First” or the use of tropes favored by white nationalists are not issues that attract American Jews. It is early days, but I suspect the GOP’s hopes will be dashed once again.
The United States is not the UK, and the Democratic Party is certainly not the British Labour party. But the echoes of British, left-wing anti-Semitism and a two-camp worldview can be heard on many American college campuses, within extreme-left political groups and even among some American progressives. It reminds us that anti-Semitism in America is not simply the property of the American right.
It wasn’t really a surprise when Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and the Likud won April’s election in Israel, his fifth election victory. The Netanyahu-led right has a solid majority in Israel, and the ideological left has been relegated to the back benches of the Knesset. Life in Israel is good, and young Israelis in “the Bibi generation” appreciate it.
