The New York Times’ Maureen Dowd penned a piece called “Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez handles the Jurassic jerks,” which described how the youngest female member of Congress handled being dehumanized by a Republican male member of Congress who called her a “bitch.” Dowd complimented AOC on her performance as standing above the hate and excelling at what she does, “strutting to the rap tune Boss Bitch by Doja Cat, her long hair whipping to the music, with the Capitol in the background. ‘I’m a bitch and a boss, I’m a-shine like gloss.’ She captioned it: ‘Shine on, fight for others, and let the haters stay mad.’” Dowd noted that such approach was the best way to “make Paleolithic men understand that they are history.”
At the same time that this liberal was noting how Republican misogyny was a pathway to oblivion, Islamic leaders continued their practice of dehumanizing Jews.
Heshmat Khalifa, a trustee and director of Islamic Relief Worldwide (IRW), resigned from his position after posts on his Facebook page were revealed in which he called Jews the “grandchildren of monkeys and pigs.” This is a common refrain among imams around the world.
Official Palestinian Authority TV posts videos of clerics and young girls making the identical slurs repeatedly. Politicians in both Fatah and Hamas continuously dehumanize Jews with this curse. The most antisemitic people in the world cannot fathom Jews having any rights to even live in their Jewish homeland, as they are not even human beings.
But decent people all over the world recognize the incredible contribution of Jews and the Jewish State. Jews account for roughly 20% of Noble prizes even as the make up only 0.2% of the global population. The only Jewish state is a shining example of democracy, innovation and tolerance in the midst of a region that still practices honor killings, executes minors and hangs gays from cranes.
Ayaan Hirsi Ali wrote about her experience growing up as a Muslim listening to vile antisemitic comments in The New York Times in 2013. She wrote about it again in the Wall Street Journal in 2019 after Muslim Congresswoman Ilhan Omar went on an antisemitic tirade. It was clear that Ilhan Omar was no victim but emblematic of the disgusting mindset that festers in radical Muslims.
Many people are calling for women and oppressed minorities to strut their stuff and declare they are the new “boss” while they laugh at misogynistic “Paleolithic men” becoming extinct. It is well past time for people to call upon Jews to stand tall and laugh at Islamic radicals who seek to deny Jews’ basic humanity and human rights to live and pray in their holy land while these Muslim Jurassic Jerks disappear into the dustbin of history.
