About Us and Our Mission
#JEXIT believes that American Jews can no longer blindly vote Democrat.
Founded in 2018, JEXIT stands for Jews Exiting the Democrat Party. Our mission is to help educate and encourage Jews to understand and be fully cognizant of the fact that the Democrat party has abandoned them and Israel. JEXIT believes that much of the core of today’s Democrat party is anti-Israel, antisemitic and anti-American. The antisemitism that has permeated the White House and Capitol Hill from the left side of the aisle has become clearly evident by their complacency towards BDS, their tolerance of claims that Israel is an apartheid state, their funding and appeasement of Israel’s enemies and their campaigns to defund Israel’s defense systems, including the Iron Dome. Furthermore, JEXIT knows that a strong, territorially defensible Israel is of utmost importance to regional, U.S. and global security interests. Israel is preeminent in national security and they are our national security partner!
#JEXIT believes the Democrat Party has turned its back on Israel.
Our mission is to educate Jews about this dangerous shift in Democrat policy, its voices, its spokespersons and its clear shifting away from support of Israel. Some of the Democrat Party’s elected officials advocate for a one-state solution to the “Palestinian” problem – which to them means NO Israel.
Others advocate for a program of Israel’s surrendering territories as a predicate for a “two- state solution”. This is despite decades of Palestinian refusal and in defiance of the clear mandate of Israel’s elections and policies. JEXIT does not believe the current Democrat Party has a vision for Israel’s future.
JEXIT is clear in its position that it is impossible to separate Israel and its several thousand year history from the Jewish People, and that anti-Israel rhetoric is implicitly antisemitic.
JEXIT also fights for Holocaust education and remembrance. As the generation who experienced first hand the horrors of concentration camps is almost extinct, it is up to our generation to keep their memory alive and make sure that Never Again remains Never Again.
There are only 15 million Jews in the world of which approximately half live in Israel with much of the other half living in the Untied States. We are less than 2% of the US population, yet we tolerate the corrupt United Nations placing some 90% of it’s worldwide sanctions against Israel. Antisemitic politicians, educators and celebrities play off of these condemnations by using disgusting rhetoric such as “Jews control the World”, “Jews control the Banks” and “Jews control the Media” in order to justify and rationalize their hatred. JEXIT knows that tolerance of all this hateful rhetoric absolutely fans the flames of the historic increase in antisemitic hate crimes throughout the U.S. and around the world.
JEXIT cannot go along with this dangerous trend. We must open our eyes to the truth. Israel’s very existence depends on our unity. It is time we come together to defend and support Israel, and that can be accomplished through JEXIT.
#JEXIT believes that the Democrat party has abandoned American Jewry.
American Jews, as well as those around the world, are facing an existential crisis. Antisemitism, both here and abroad, is on a precipitous rise.
Jews have traditionally been a bulwark of the Democrat Party. For decades, American Jews have consistently supported Democrat candidates. However, that party has undergone a seismic and alarming change. Accepting, approving and failing to condemn clearly antisemitic comments by Congressional Democrats show the new direction of the Party. Whether it’s Rep. Omar stating “Israel has hypnotized the world, may Allah awaken the people and help them see the evil doings of Israel” or Rep. Tlaib accusing her Jewish colleagues of “forgetting what country they represent” when they defend Israel or Nancy Pelosi in her past position as Speaker of the House defending their statements, the trend is clear.
In summary, JEXIT knows the importance of strength, safety and sovereignty for the citizens of both USA and Israel. And with that we support and fight for the mandate of strong borders in addition to an equally strong partnership between the two nations!! Together We Are Stronger!
