  1. Thanks, Ted, for publishing an article about the horrific situation here in the States. I realize that America’s problems may seem remote to Israelis, who have more than enough challenges at home to focus their attention on, and even to Canadains, who don’t face major riots. But American problems will inevitably have a big impact on both Israel, and Canada, so that it is a good idea for citizens of these two countries, who I think are most of Israpundit’s readers, to pay attention to the disaster shaping up here in the USA.

    The lockdown has cut into the incomes and savings of most middle-class and working-class Americans. They had been huring for years in any case, living from paycheck to paycheck. Those who were already poor are now even poorer. Even as the lockdowns gradually ease, it will take a long time for the economy to get back to normal, since many businesses have been destroyed by the lockdown and will not reopen. And even those businesses that have survived will mainly cut back on staff to reduce costs.

    Meanwhile the riots, organized I believe by a coalition of the organized black community, which pretty much controls Black LIves Matter, and the
    leftist organizations like Antifa, ads a new dimension to the crisis. A severe economic downturn tends to ignite racial tensions that have in any case been smoldering for years. Now we are on the verge of a racial civil war.

    The Democrats are plaaning a massive ballot-stuffing operation to win the November elections by using vote-by-mail and ballot-harvesting. They may well succeed. But conservative white Americans will not accept a Democratic administration and Congress elected this way. Many my join radical, antigovernment militia groups, which could also set off an armed uprising and a civil war.

    Please pray for us. Also, Israel must be prepared to go it alone without U.S. help if the situation here continues to deteriorate, and the u.S. collapses.

  2. Trump and Fox News are right that these riots are highly organized by radical leftists, who will stop at nothing in their use of violence and their use of violence to supress all dissent. This is what the Bolsheviks did when they seized power and crushed all dissent between 1917 and 1922. A hundred years later, antifa and similar groups have exactly the same mindset and the same agenda.

    The extreme left always claims to be acting on behalf of the poor and the downtrodden. But no one suffered worse than the poor under Bolshevik rule. The same has been true in the United States, albeit on a smaller scale, wherever, Black power militants and leftists have unleashed roiting looting and arson. It has been the poorest blacks who suffered when their homes and the small businesses they depended on for shopping and employment were burned down and /or forced to move out.

  3. From the June 1 Jerusalem Post:

    A number of kosher stores and synagogues have been vandalized and looted in the uptown Los Angeles neighborhood of Fairfax, between Saturday night and Sunday morning, by people protesting police brutality following the killing of George Floyd, an African-American man, in Minneapolis, Minnesota, last week.
    Some of the synagogues damaged as a result of vandalism, graffiti and looting by protesters include Congregation Kehilas Yaakov, also known as Rabbi Gershon Bess Shul, and Tiferes Tzvi (Rabbi Ganzweig Shul) on on Beverly Boulevard in the Fairfax district of Los Angeles. Elder of Ziyon, a pro-Israel activist, recorded clips of some of the damage done to the synagogues in Fairfax.”

  4. “Violence is being led by Antifa, radical groups like BLM”, the F media and their owners, the dems and other W DC kleptocrats (rhinos, never-Trumper)!
    However we can’t forget the far right!!!

  5. @ Adam Dalgliesh:
    ” Bolsheviks …crushed all dissent between 1917 and 1922″ The WWI ended in 1918 and then Russia was invaded by several countries including the US and endured a Civil War nationwide at the same time which ended in 1921. It kind of figures that Bolsheviks wouldn’t quite encourage dissent during this time frame.
    This is in case you didn’t know.
