Using A Fictional Antisemitism Crisis To Support A Real Genocide

“One of the most frustrating things happening in the world right now is the way people of conscience are doing everything they can to bring a stop to Israel’s US-backed atrocities in Gaza, and Israel supporters are responding to this by pointing at an epidemic of ‘antisemitism’ which has no existence outside their own imaginations — but we’re all expected to pretend it’s real and worthy of respect. TV’s ‘Dr Phil’ McGraw flew to Jerusalem to give war criminal Benjamin Netanyahu an hour-long platform on which to justify his genocidal violence in Gaza to an American audience …. Netanyahu went so far as to advance the ridiculous suggestion that this sudden wave of support for Palestinians has nothing to do with Israel’s actions in Gaza at all, but is solely due to a massive ‘explosion’ in antisemitism which just so happens to coincide with those actions.” (05/12/24)
