Read about Jewish German patriots, such as Nobel winner Fritz Haber, and their experiences in 1920-30s …
Haber was visiting Atlantic City before WW1 and was appalled seeing a “No Jews” notice. His host assured him that this is about “other” Eastern-European Jews, not people like them. Still, he remarked – I can’t imagine anything like that in Germany.April 26, 2021 3:31 pm at 3:31 pm #1968227HealthParticipant

Any Goy, can at anytime, attack Frum Jews.
I couldn’t care less about party affiliations.
Shomrim, etc. isn’t good enough.
E/o must able to defend themselves.
It doesn’t mean e/o should carry guns.
But there are many ways, eg. Mace, learn Martial Arts, Tasers.
When the Goy backed up into Jews, in Willy a few days ago, no one Stopped him.
Years ago, in Willy, they had an Immediate Chap Sum!
The Goyim learned to stay away from the Yidden!April 26, 2021 6:05 pm at 6:05 pm #1968287

Gun control is where it’s at. Every single murderous dictator outlawed and confiscated guns before their brutal, murderous campaigns. As someone put it: ‘If the Jews of Europe were armed, and SS officers had to worry that they might not return home to their families that night, things may have been very different’.
As Jews, we understand that we’re always going to end up being a target, and that Hashem is directing everything regardless of our physical preparedness. However, we still must do our part. Unfortunately, the current state of affairs in Israel (due to communist tactics) is not very appealing for many.April 27, 2021 12:24 pm at 12:24 pm #1968625Leiby WasserParticipant

No politicall party is “with judiasm” although the republican party is much more in line with our valuesApril 30, 2021 12:27 pm at 12:27 pm #1969779n0mesorahParticipant
How many people have their own political party? Mike Bloomberg? Gary Johnson? Vermin Supreme? The question seems more about if a political party has you. Well, you erred from a Torah perspective in giving such prominence to shifting policies and moral standards that will never be applied. The affinity for a party is of itself turning against the Torah. See the first verse in Tehillem.
