Israel: Deputy Foreign Minister Tzipi Hotovely, during a recent TV interview, complained that American Jews do not sufficiently support the pro-war policies of Israel because they don’t know what it is like to be attacked by their enemies.  She referred to American Jews as “people that never send their children to fight for their country.  Most of the Jews don’t have children serving as soldiers, going to the Marines, going to Afghanistan, or to Iraq. Most of them are having quite convenient lives…” Hotovely was reprimanded for this statement by Prime Minister ​Netanyahu and forced to apologize for it – not because it is untrue but because it is objectionable. Gilad Atzmon, an anti-war activist who was born in Israel, says that Jews being reluctant to fight American wars does not fit well with the fact that Americans have been fighting Israeli wars for may years. -GEG​

(LONDON) – Israel’s deputy foreign minister Tzipi Hotovely attacked U.S. Jewry in an interview with i24 News on Wednesday.

Hotovely referred to American Jews as “people that never send their children to fight for their country, most of the Jews don’t have children serving as soldiers, going to the Marines, going to Afghanistan, or to Iraq. Most of them are having quite convenient lives…” (watch VIDEO below)

PM Netanyahu was very quick to condemn his deputy minister. This is understandable, after all Jews being reluctant to fight American wars doesn’t fit nicely with the embarrassing fact that America has been fighting Israeli wars for a while.

The pro-war Neocon school is largely a Zionist gathering and the Jewish American Lobby has been pushing for the escalation of immoral interventionist conflicts in Iraq, Syria, Libya and Iran.

Haaretz writes that “the U.S. military stopped recording the religion of recruits decades ago, but until then Jews served in slightly greater proportion than their percentage in the general population.”

I thought it would be fascinating to find out what the current figures are. As such, it seems Haaretz didn’t do its homework. Apparently, there is a record available of faiths within the USA military.

It reveals that out of the 1,300,000 American soldiers, only 4,515 are Jewish. Jews make only 0.3% of the American military.
