NOW people are noticing how disgusting, self-loathing and antisemitic the Forward is. Did they think it would end with me? Here is the Forward’s vile coverage of my efforts to defend freedom of speech, individual rights, the U.S. and Israel.
Some of the people on the Forward’s list actually make sense: violent jihadists, Hassan Nasrallah of Hizballah, Ismail Haniyeh of Hamas, Farrakhan, David Duke, and others. And I am no fan of all of the people who are unjustly on the list, but the idea that Jews should fear the ardently pro-Israel Donald Trump or the Zionist advocate Morton Klein more than the pro-jihad antisemite Linda Sarsour is as ridiculous as it is vicious. The Forward has to resort to lies, such as that Sebastian Gorka is tied to Nazis, to make its case.
Alan Dershowitz called it “the most despicable article ever in Jewish media.”
The Jewish Daily Forward is actively working against Jews, Israel, and all free people. It should rename itself the Jew-Haters Daily Forward.
“19 People Jews Should Worry About More Than Linda Sarsour,” by Steven Davidson, Forward, August 3, 2017 (thanks to Mark):
You may be familiar with Linda Sarsour, an activist who rose to prominence as one of the leaders of the Women’s March. Sarsour has a lot of supporters. But she also has her fair share of detractors.
Sarsour has been repeatedly isolated as a harbinger of hate and violence, most recently in a New York Times piece by Bari Weiss. A Palestinian-American who supports BDS, Sarsour is repeatedly accused of supporting violent jihad. Even Courtney Love (Courtney Love??) has called Sarsour an “anti-Semitic terrorist.”
But others in the Jewish community have come to Sarsour’s defense, including Jeremy Ben-Ami, Mark Hetfield, Rabbi Jill Jacobs and Brad Lander….
Here are 19 people Jews should actually be more worried about than Linda Sarsour….
2. Sebastian Gorka
Under any other presidential administration, information revealing your top counter-terrorism advisor is a member of a far-right group founded by Nazis would be a fireable offense. Welcome to 2017….
5. Steve Bannon
Donald Trump’s chief strategist long oversaw Breitbart News, the outlet spewing xenophobic hate like it’s their job (well, it kind of is). As court documents state, when looking for schools to enroll his daughters in, Bannon “went on to say the biggest problem he had with Archer is the number of Jews that attend. He said that he doesn’t like Jews and that he doesn’t like the way they raise their kids to be ‘whiney brats’ and that he didn’t want the girls going to school with Jews.”
6. Morton Klein
As leader of the Zionist Organization of America, Klein has embraced and defended alt-right figures like Bannon and Gorka for their unabashedly pro-Israel-at-any-costs position, cozying up to anti-Semitic forces if it advances the ZOA’s ardent Zionist goals. It would require a book replete with exclamation points to fully explain the dangers of an ostensibly Jewish organization aligning with xenophobic elements to accomplish narrow political goals….
8. Viktor Orban
Hungarian far-right leader Viktor Orban’s dog-whistle campaign against George Soros has been well-documented at the Forward, portraying Soros as a shadowy figure controlling all that is malevolent behind the scenes.
9. Milo Yiannopoulis
Though half-Jewish, Milo has had no problem disseminating Jewish conspiratorial tropes, once saying “the Jews run everything. Well we do. The Jews run all the banks. Well we do. The Jews run the media. Well we do. You know they’re right about all that stuff.”…
12. Sebastian Gorka (again)
Let me repeat: THERE IS AN ACTUAL ALLEGED MEMBER OF A NAZI-ALIGNED GROUP ADVISING THE POTUS AND NOBODY SEEMS TO CARE.
13. Marine Le Pen
Le Pen may have lost the election, but that does not mean the anti-Semitism that has in part fueled support for her National Front party has gone away. And don’t forget how Le Pen so easily cleansed France of all blame for the Holocaust….
16. Mike Cernovich
11 other people on this list either support or work for Donald Trump (or took far too long for Trump to disavow). You can make it 12 if you consider extremists’ jubliation for a Trump presidency. Inarguably, Trump’s dog-whistle campaign either rode the coattails of the alt-right or allowed the alt-right to follow his nativist coattails….
