There are far too many of them…
Had the same situation here in Finland, when Jewish National Coalition (KOK) Ben Zyskowicz flacked for his colleague, Pertti Salolainen who insisted on Finnish national state TV, Yle morning program that “US Jews have the money and media in their hands to a great extent”. He was discussing the role AIPAC plays in lobbying US politicians. Being a complete ignoramus on these issues Salolainen didn’t know that the overwhelming majority of money flowing to AIPAC comes from non-Jewish sources, as well as Jews in the mostly Left-leaning media, NYT for example, are consistently taking a negative stance vis-a-vis the Jewish state in their reporting and in their editorials.
JEWISH ANTI-SEMITES, BERNIE SANDERS, ILYA SHEYMAN, BACK REP. OMAR’S ANTI-SEMITISM
February 14, 2019
There are no surprises here.
Bernie Sanders backed Jesse Jackson after his Hymietown slur.
Jackson had told a Washington Post reporter, “That’s all Hymie wants to talk about, is Israel; every time you go to Hymietown, that’s all they want to talk about”. Bernie Sanders however tried to prove he was a good “Hymie” (or a good Non-Hymie Hymie) by defending Jackson’s hostility to the Jewish state.
When Bernie Sanders reached out for perspective on the Middle East during his campaign, he contacted James Zogby, who defended Hamas and Hezbollah, and Lawrence Wilkerson, who had accused Jewish officials of dual loyalty and suggested that Israel was behind Assad’s chemical weapons attacks.
At a Bernie Sanders event in New York City, a black “community activist” began ranting about “Zionist Jews” running the Federal Reserve and Wall Street. There was no condemnation of anti-Semitism. Instead after an initial claim that he was proud to be Jewish, he switched to a rambling speech criticizing Israel and distancing himself from Zionism.
So it would have been much more surprising if Bernie hadn’t rushed to Rep. Omar’s defense after her anti-Semitic tweets.
