“More central to the Zionist cause, though, are the useful Christian idiots. Mike Pompeo, Mike Pence, and John Hagee – men whose Christianity is perpetually for sale, like a whore on the corner – keep the gullible evangelical crowd in its subservient, ‘philo-Semitic’ place. An easy task, that, as these persons believe the recreation of Israel is part of biblical prophecy that will lead to Armageddon and the second coming of Christ.” – Christopher DeGroot, “The conservative country club and the Zionism problem” – The Unz Review, August 8th, 2019.

“The Director of the Mossad, Prime Minister Netanyahu, had a motive for increasing the level of antisemitic threats early in Donald Trump’s presidency. During the 2016 campaign, Trump promised reductions in foreign aid, including Israel’s. Trump had to be stopped. A conspicuous increase in apparent antisemitic activity in America would license American Zionists to cite Trump as “Antisemite in-Chief”, personally responsible for the rise. The resulting outrage could invoke second thoughts about cutting aid to Israel.” – Franklin Stahl, “Hate crime survey reports” – The Unz Review, July 21st, 2019.

“Florida high school principal William Latson, a Black, reportedly told the mother of a Jewish student, ‘Not everyone believes the Holocaust happened’ while discussing the school’s history curriculum. This was enough to send the student’s Jewish mother into a state of rage and caused her to demand even more strict ideological conformity than Jews have already enforced on American schools – literally to the point of forbidding the mere mention of the fact that other viewpoints exist.” – Bradford Hanson, “Florida: Jews demand that everyone believe exactly as they are told” – National Vanguard, July 8th, 2019.

“Certainly, the voting record in Congress would suggest that there are a lot of congress critters who embrace dual loyalty, with evidence that the loyalty is not so much dual as skewed in favor of Israel. Any bill relating to Israel or to Jewish collective interests, like the currently fashionable topic of anti-Semitism, is guaranteed a 90% plus approval rating no matter what it says or how much it damages actual U.S. interests.” – Philip Giraldi, “No, dual loyalty isn’t okay” – The Unz Review, March 12th, 2019.

“What has been taking place is not hatred of Jews but rather a confluence of two factors. First is the undeniable fact that Israel has been behaving particularly badly, even by its admittedly low standards. Its slaughter of Palestinians in Gaza has been unusually observable in spite of media attempts to avoid mentioning it, plus its support of terrorists in Syria and attacks on that country have also raised questions about the intentions of the kleptocratic regime in Tel Aviv, which is currently pushing for an attack on Iran. That all means that the perception of Israel, which boasts that it is the exclusively Jewish state, inevitably raises questions about the international Jewish community that provides much of its support. But the shift in perception is driven by Israeli behavior, not by Jews as an ethnicity or a religion.” – Philip Giraldi, “The growing anti-Semitism scam” – The Unz Review, Feb. 19th, 2019.

“Personally I think anti-Semitism as a smear is not what it used to be.” – Jonathan Schanzer, a senior official of the (pro-Israel) Foundation for the Defense of Democracies, quoted by Philip Giraldi in “Registering Israel’s useful idiots” – The Unz Review, Nov. 20th, 2018.

“Home-rental company Airbnb announced on Monday it would remove its listings in Israeli settlements in the West Bank, prompting outrage from Israeli officials… In response, Strategic Affairs Minister Gilad Erdan, who oversees Israel’s battle against a Palestinian-led boycott movement, called on Airbnb hosts affected by the decision to file lawsuits in accordance with Israel’s anti-boycott law.” – Assoc. Press, “Airbnb removes 200 listings in Israeli settlements in West Bank” – National Post, Nov. 19th, 2018.

“I’ve never seen a President – I don’t care who he is – stand up to them. It just boggles the mind. They always get what they want. The Israelis know what is going on all the time. I got to the point where I wasn’t writing anything down. If the American people understood what a grip these people have got on our government, they would rise up in arms. Our citizens certainly don’t have any idea what goes on.” – U.S. Navy Admiral and former head of the Joint Chiefs of Staff Thomas Moorer (August 1983), quoted by Philip Giraldi in “Israel’s fifth column” – The Unz Review, Sept. 4th, 2018.

“No state or entity is absolved of mass shootings of protesters. There is no justification. Palestinian people deserve basic human dignity, as anyone else. Democrats can’t be silent about this anymore. I think I was primarily compelled [to speak out] on moral grounds because I could only imagine if 60 people were shot and killed in Ferguson. Or if 60 people were shot and killed in the West Virginia teachers’ strikes. The idea that we are not supposed to talk about people dying when they are engaging in political expression just really moved me.” – Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, quoted by Philip Giraldi in “Feeding the monster” – The Unz Review, July 3rd, 2018.

“And the mass murder in Gaza is already on its way to oblivion (in the press). They wanted to remind the world that they are buried alive in the grave of Gaza, and now they are dead. The people of Gaza have been locked up there for 70 years; the last 12 years were the worst, as the Gaza Strip has been under siege by Israel since they voted for Hamas. Gaza is almost unliveable, as Israel has bombed its power station, its sewage plants, its harbour and airfield. They can’t even fish, as Israeli boats machinegun the fishing boats.” – Israel Shamir, “The Messiah is here” – The Unz Review, May 20th, 2018.
