“In fact, there have been suggestions that certain American policemen might well be picking up some unanticipated pointers from the Israelis. Georgia has been experiencing a surge in officer involved shootings, nearly half of the victims being unarmed or shot from behind. As this has unfolded, the state continues to pursue a ‘police exchange’ program with Israel run through Georgia State University… There has been particular concern expressed over the Israeli ‘us-versus-them’ dual track mode of policing where the 20% of the country’s citizens that are Arab are regarded as an enemy while the settlers who prey on the Palestinians are automatically protected by police solely because they are Jewish.” – Philip Giraldi, “Militarized police a gift from Israel?” – The Unz Review, June 9th, 2020.

“Israel does not spend a penny on its captive population, except for prisons. If Israel wants to take a part of Palestinian land for a Jewish settlement, for roads natives are forbidden to use, for military bases, for nature reserves natives are not allowed to enter, no need to ask, just help yourself.” Israel Shamir, “Israel between lockdown and annexation” – Unz Review, July 20th, 2020.

“To me, the ‘Jewish lobby’ is one of the antisemitic themes that have endured for centuries. It is this myth there are these very powerful Jews who control foreign policy or the media or banks or whatever.” – Jewish Chronicle editor Stephen Pollard, quoted by Chantal Da Silva in “Prince Charles blames ‘foreign Jews’ for Middle East turmoil in 1986 letter” – The Independent, November 12th, 2017.

“It has proven difficult to pass an unconstitutional national level ban on non-violent criticism of Israel going through Congress, so the Israel firsters have instead concentrated on the states. Twenty-eight states now have some form of legislation that denies state services or jobs to anyone who does not sign an agreement to not boycott Israel. A particularly draconian bill being considered in Florida equates any criticism of Israel with anti-Semitism, enabling any critic to be sued in courts for hate speech.” – Philip Giraldi, “Virginia goes Zionist” – Unz Review, March 31st, 2020.

“On top of the $60 billion ADL (Anti-Defamation League -JG) wants for itself and its ideological fellow travelers (including tax-funded refugee resettlement contractors Catholic Charities, Church World Service and Lutheran Services), the group called on House Speaker Nancy Pelosi this week to include Medicaid coverage and tax rebates for illegal immigrants in her Chinese flu rescue package. ADL’s full-throated promotion of America’s demographic transformation through mass migration stands in stark contrast to its unapologetic defense of Israel’s restrictionist immigration policies and militarized borders.” – Michelle Malkin, “Chutzpah: ADL wants a federal bailout” – RealClear Politics, March 25th, 2020.
