Main Takeaways

A Generation Sympathizing with Bin Laden

  • A generation raised on the idea that success equals oppression and failure equals being oppressed does not see Osama bin Laden as evil.
  • New videos trending on TikTok show young Americans reading bin Laden’s letter to America, which makes the same case as radical Muslims and radical leftists in favor of Hamas.
  • Many young people agree with bin Laden’s letter and are going through an existential crisis.
  • The UK Guardian had to take down the entire text of the letter from their website because it was trending too much on TikTok.

The Rise of Anti-Semitism

  • We have taught an entire generation of young people to side with Hamas and see the West as inherently evil or morally equivalent with terrorists.
  • If 9/11 happened today, many young people would be pro-bin Laden.
  • Many Americans were never given information on why 9/11 happened.
  • Osama bin Laden defended his mass killing of civilians by holding Americans accountable for electing their leaders.

The Israel-Hamas Conflict

  • Israel’s argument for leveling Gaza because they elected Hamas is similar to bin Laden’s argument for attacking Americans.
  • Bin Laden believed that the creation of Israel is a crime that must be erased and that Muslims are the inheritors of Moses.
  • Bin Laden believed in the destruction of the state of Israel and the murder of all Jews.
  • Bin Laden called for the establishment of Islamic Sharia and an Iranian-style theocracy.

The Media and Political Landscape

  • The radical left is pushing for more pro-Chinese positions and playing the oppressed to push the moderate left to mirror their views.
  • The left doesn’t believe in personal responsibility and thinks that poverty causes anger instead of the other way around.
  • Violent actions tend to make people poorer and make their lives worse.
  • The media covers violent protests by left-wingers as normal and buries them in the mainstream media.

Anti-Semitism and Political Figures

  • Anti-Jewish protesters in Berkeley threw cash at city council members, blaming Jews for the lack of AC’s fire.
  • 40 groups at Columbia University proposed to push divestment from Israel and call themselves the Columbia University apartheid divest coalition.
  • Rashida Tlaib is a member of the Facebook group Palestinian-American Congress, whose founder has referred to Israelis as not real Jews and questioned the Holocaust.
  • 24 members of the “Hamas caucus” signed a letter to President Biden and Secretary of State Blinken expressing deep concern about the war in Gaza and calling for a ceasefire.

Media Coverage and Controversial Figures

  • Musk criticized the ADL for attacking the majority of the West despite their support for the Jewish people in Israel.
  • Many in the media linked Musk to the alt-right and the Jewish question, while downplaying open Jew hatred and Prokamos protests around the globe.

International Relations and Terrorism

  • Joe Biden has greenlit $10 billion to be handed over to Iran, which could be used for terrorism.
  • US positions in Iraq and Syria are under attack from terrorist militia groups controlled by Iran.
  • The serious threat to Israel is not Hamas, but Hezbollah on Israel’s northern border.
  • Iran doesn’t want Israel to go after Hezbollah because it would remove their operating base against Israel and leave them with no existential threat on Israel’s border.

Generation Sympathizing with Bin Laden and Rise of Anti-Semitism

A generation of young Americans, influenced by a narrative that equates success with oppression and failure with being oppressed, is showing sympathy towards Osama bin Laden. TikTok videos featuring young people reading bin Laden’s letter to America have gone viral, echoing the arguments of radical Muslims and radical leftists in favor of Hamas. This trend highlights the failure to educate young Americans about the true nature of 9/11 and the dangers of extremist ideologies. The media’s portrayal of Israel and Hamas further perpetuates the moral equivalence narrative, leading to the erosion of support for Israel and the rise of anti-Semitism.

The Media, Political Landscape, and Controversial Figures

The media’s biased coverage favors left-wing narratives and downplays the threat posed by groups like Hamas. Anti-Semitic incidents, such as protesters blaming Jews for disasters, are overlooked or buried in mainstream media. Political figures like Rashida Tlaib, who have associations with Hamas supporters, continue to hold positions of power despite their controversial statements. Elon Musk’s tweet about Jewish communities and diversity sparked controversy, with the media linking him to the alt-right while ignoring the rise of open Jew hatred globally.

International Relations, Terrorism, and Political Landscape

The Biden administration’s approach to international relations raises concerns, with the greenlighting of funds to Iran and the lack of decisive action against terrorist groups. The threat from Hezbollah on Israel’s northern border is overshadowed by the focus on Hamas. Joe Biden’s meeting with Xi Jinping and the disarray within the House GOP further highlight the challenges in achieving effective governance. The leaked NSA document revealing the extent of woke ideology within the agency raises questions about its priorities and effectiveness.


The growing sympathy towards Osama bin Laden among young Americans and the rise of anti-Semitism within the media and political landscape are alarming trends. It is crucial to educate and provide accurate information to counter these dangerous narratives. The Israel-Hamas conflict, international relations, and the state of the political landscape further highlight the need for informed and responsible discourse. It is essential to address these issues to ensure a more informed and balanced society.
