Last week Democratic Party Presidential nominee Hillary Clinton said that Republican nominee Donald Trump turned a blind eye to his anti-Semitic supporters. As the saying goes people who live in anti-Semitic glass houses should not throw stones. A look at Hillary Clinton’s supporters shows an extensive list of Jewish and Israel haters. This post provides a sample, a baker’s dozen of Hillary’s haters, whose anti-Jewish and anti-Israel bigotry is ignored by Ms. Clinton and the mainstream media.
Note: for those of you who don’t believe that hating Israel is the same as hating Jews I give you two quotes: “When people criticize Zionists they mean Jews. You’re talking anti-Semitism” The Reverend Martin Luther King Jr. “To attack Jews is anti-Semitism, but an outright attack on the State of Israel is also anti-Semitism. There may be political disagreements between governments and on political issues, but the State of Israel has every right to exist in safety and prosperity,” Pope Francis.
With the hatred identified, lets take a look at some of Hillary Clinton’s supporters who stir the pot of hatred:
Rev. William Barber II: Tried to de-legitimize Israel during the DNC by claiming that Jesus was a Palestinian Jew.Rev. Barber’s branding of Jesus as a Palestinian wasn’t really the result of a flaw in his education, he was repeating a piece of Palestinian propaganda. It’s one of the things they use to disassociate Judaism from its roots in the holy land. Jesus was not a Palestinian. He was a Judean. The name Palestine was given to the Jewish State by the Romans as a punishment a century after Jesus lived. After the Bar Kochba revolt in 135 CE the Romans punished the Judeans (Jews) for revolting again by changing the name of their country from Judea (after the Tribe of Judah which is where the term Jewish came from) to Syria Palaestina. The name came from Phylistiim, the Roman word for the ancient Jewish enemy, the Philistines. According to page 313 of the Oxford encyclopedia of archaeology in the Near East, had disappeared in the late 5th century B.C.E.
[Support to Israel] not only diverts much needed funding from domestic education and social programs, but it makes US citizens complicit in the abuses committed by the Israeli government. Israel is an apartheid state with over 50 laws on the books that sanction discrimination against the Palestinian people. Palestinian homes and land are routinely bulldozed to make way for illegal Israeli settlements. Israeli soldiers also regularly arrest and detain Palestinians as young as 4 years old without due process. Every day, Palestinians are forced to walk through military checkpoints along the US-funded apartheid wall. —Build invest/divestment campaigns that ends US Aid to Israel’s military industrial complex and any government with human rights violations.
Max Blumenthal: Some call Max Blumenthal a self-hating Jew, that is a falsehood. He Loves himself. Max is a Jew hating Jew. Max is the son of Sidney Blumenthal, the friend of Hillary that has been connected to the email scandal. Max Blumenthal’s writings about Israel go beyond a simple criticism of the Jewish State and into the repulsive realm of anti-Semitism. His latest book Goliath includes chapters comparing Israel to the Nazis, such as “The Concentration Camp,” or “The Night of Broken Glass,” and others which are just slanderous, like “How to Kill Goyim and Influence People,” all of them reminiscent of the anti-Semitic blood libels popular in medieval Europe. F. Glenn Miller Jr., the 73-year-old avowed anti-Semite accused who shot and killed three Jews outside a Jewish community center in Kansas two years ago, was a huge fan of Max Blumenthal’s anti-Semitic rantings. Max’s writings were emailed to Hillary by his father. She sent them around to the State Department to read.
Sidney Blumenthal: Max may have gotten his anti-Israel/anti-Semitic feelings from good friend of Hillary Clinton, his dear old dad, Sidney. Sid Blumenthal sent many emails about Israel. Along with forwarding articles from his anti-Semitic son Max, Sidney sent policy recommendations about Israel, generally one sided describing Israel as the oppressor. Like the time Hillary was preparing for her 2010 AIPAC speech and Blumenthal
Instructed Clinton to “hold Bibi [Netanyahu]’s feet to the fire” on the Israeli-Palestinian peace process. “Perhaps most controversial,” he continued, would be for Clinton to “remind [AIPAC] in as subtle but also direct a way as you can that it does not have a monopoly over American Jewish opinion. Bibi is stage managing US Jewish organizations (and neocons, and the religious right, and whomever else he can muster) against the administration. AIPAC itself has become an organ of the Israeli right, specifically Likud.”
