Why Criticism Of Israel Isn’t Antisemitism


it’s a weird time to be a Jew in America
one might assume that the biggest threat to American Jews would look like this or
this so why are elected officials and the mainstream media and even some
American Jewish institutions constantly telling us that the biggest threat to
Jews looks like this hi I’m not Francesca fiorentina and
today we’re gonna discuss how the right wing narrative of left-wing
antisemitism is used to uphold white supremacy we’re gonna have some fun antisemitism is on the rise in America
Jews were the direct target of half of all extremist homicides last year
right-wing extremists were responsible for the tree of life synagogues shooting
the Poway synagogues shooting and to add insult to injury Mel Gibson is not only
back doing movies but he’s reportedly doing a biopic on the Jewish banking
family the Rothschilds who if you google you’ll find nothing but conspiracy
theories about that’s insane it would be like if the next season a planet earth
was narrated by a flat earther the emperor penguin must avoid the hungry
leopard seal who guards the edge of the earth which is actually shaped like a
plate because NASA lies to you there seems to be a strange pattern around the
narrative of antisemitism in the media every time there’s an antisemitic
attack people will cover the white supremacist antisemitism responsible
for it for a couple of days followed by weeks of what have you heard about
left-wing antisemitism in the rise of antisemitism and bigotry inside the
Democratic Party in democratic circles antisemitism is becoming normal
anti-Zionism antisemitism of some parts of the left that seems a lot closer to
the heart of the Democratic Party than to the heart of the Republican Party cheery segments oh thanks both sides are
horrible mostly your side though in our news broke episode about why
antisemites love Israel which you should watch next I explained how the
right wing has effectively changed the definition of antisemitism from hatred
of Jews to criticism of Israel making it incredibly easy to accuse people who
advocate for Palestinian rights of antisemitism remember arguing against
Israeli policy is not antisemitic if it was that would make literally every
Jewish family get-together a hate crime hello is this the ADL yes I would like
to report my grandson in this episode we’re going beyond that and looking at
how the right-wing scare tactics around Israel are being used to divide American
Jews create distrust of antiracist organizing target black and brown people
distract from the occupation and ultimately weaken efforts against real
antisemitism oh yeah the propaganda around Israel is a whole
damn espresso machine of intolerance so would you like two shots of Islamophobia
or just all anti black first we need to look at who the right wing is accusing
of antisemitism let’s start with Ilhan Omar and Rashida to leave the first two
Muslim women ever elected to the US House of Representatives with Talib
being the first Palestinian American congresswoman ever they both have been
accused of using antisemitic tropes or old Jewish stereotypes used to denigrate
Jews for centuries mostly through bad faith readings of their tweets first
Omar was attacked for questioning Israel’s influence on American
politicians tweeting it’s all about the Benjamins baby Ellen Imus tweet was seen
as using antisemitic trips to historic arithmetic trope it’s all about the
Benjamins a known antisemitic trope is it does did he know someone should tell
Diddy then when representative to leave tweeted about a Senate bill that would
restrict Americans rights to boycott Israel and Omar called out the Israel
lobbies influence they were both accused of using the dual loyalty trope the idea
that Jews are more loyal to Israel than the nation they currently live in
Rasheeda Talib waltzed into this trope herself this idea of dual loyalty and
then there was Omar’s unearthed 2012 tweet in which she
said Israel has hypnotized the world which was met with this an elected US
member of Congress suggesting quote evil Jews were hypnotizing the world
hypnotized by Israel sort of antisemitic trope she keeps trotting
out okay here’s the thing Jewish hypnosis is not one of our tropes
we have a lot of tropes okay but that’s not one of them at best it’s a deep cut
right next to Jewish double dipping or Jewish road rage like why are we making
up new stereotypes to hate Jews with I saw Jew jaywalking the other day typical
here’s the thing though neither Omar nor Talib skra teks say one word about Jews
they specifically mention Israel when Omar’s talking about the Benjamins she’s
not saying Jewish money she’s talking about the incredibly well-funded Israel
lobby which in 2018 spent over 22 million on lobbying and contributions
and which receives money from yes some Jews but also from evangelical Christian
groups who would really like it if we’d all just move to Israel already honestly
I don’t want to move to Israel okay I’ve already done ketamine and Tel Aviv been
there done that I’m over it accusing American politicians of being
more loyal to lobbyists and their own constituents is not an antisemitic
trope it’s literally the stump speech of anyone who has run for president ever
but when it comes to the Israel lobby it’s automatically assumed to be a trope
but here’s the thing though dual loyalty is exactly what the Israeli
establishment pro-israel American institutions the right wing and yes many
in the Democratic Party are constantly demanding from American Jews my dad
demands this as well Chuck Schumer helped pass an anti-BDS bill making it
legal for States to prosecute companies for boycotting Israel and then said this
at the AIPAC conference this year I will always stand with Israel against those
who seek to do her harm by boycott or by any other means and we will fight to
protect the Jewish people here in America and in the State of Israel in
America and in Israel but what about protecting Jewish people in America who
want to boycott Israel drafting bills criminalizing our right to boycott and
claiming it’s what American Jews want is straight up imposing dual loyalty on to
American Jews that would be like making it illegal to boycott Olive Garden by
saying fight for our italian-american brothers
and sisters and their insatiable need for unlimited soup salad and breadsticks
we must show them that in America when you’re here you’re family American Jews
who don’t fall in line behind pro-israel candidates are met with attacks on their
loyalty and even attacks on their Jewishness the question that most often
asked is why Jews vote leftist the answer is simple the vast majority of
Jews don’t care about Judaism or Israel they care about secular leftism which is
their actual religion I’ve been Shapiro Q police and then
there’s Trump who is constantly conflating Jews with Israel even going
so far as to call Benjamin Netanyahu your prime minister in a room full of
American Jews despite a long history of doing tropes himself he jumped at the
chance to paint himself as deeply offended by Omar and to leave supposed
use of tropes the squad we don’t like when they talk about evil Jews
representative Thielen Omar has a history of launching vicious
antisemitic screens yeah nothing says I hate bigotry like a
crowd full of people chanting send her back
I love how Trump always finds the opportunity to be racist even when he
supposedly condemning racism in on Omar hates Jews because of the extra muscle
in her calf the one that helps you jump so high trumps vendetta against the
squad just kept ramping up until he finally uses presidential tweeting
powers to ask Netanyahu not to let them into Israel a move which went too far
even for the pro-israel lobbying group AIPAC and then when asked to defend
himself Trump made it clear that I and the other 70% of American Jews who
didn’t vote for him should be more grateful Waite was grateful the word and
I think any Jewish people that vote for a Democrat I think it shows either a
total lack of knowledge or great disloyalty
he said loyalty dual loyalty send him back send him back saying hey where’s
everyone wait was he talking about Jews being disloyal to him or Israel because
it might not be antisemitic I mean I don’t want to do it like a bad faith
reading of what he was saying I think that if you vote for a Democrat you’re
very very disloyal to Israel and to the Jewish people okay well again he didn’t
say that Jews are disloyal to Israel if they vote Democrat so there’s a chance
he’s not including Jews the crazy thing is Trump doesn’t think
he’s being antisemitic because he’s just saying out loud what the pro-israel
establishment has been signaling for decades that Israel is the only thing
Jews care about if they are indeed good Jews he’s got the brain of a really
honest six-year-old telling his mom I don’t know what daddy’s talking about
you clearly gained weight in Trump’s mind he is being loyal to American Jews
by being staunchly pro-israel but in reality neither Trump nor Israel are
loyal to American Jews they’re loyal to each other the Israeli government has
defended Trump every time the American Jewish community calls him out on his
antisemitism like after the Tree of Life shooting when Jewish groups
protested Trump’s visit to Pittsburgh the Israeli minister of diaspora Affairs
Naftali Bennett took the time not only to defend Trump but
throw shade at American Jews saying president Trump is a true friend of the
State of Israel and to the Jewish people with President Trump we never have to
worry if he has our backs Oh Bennet and Trump are clearly a perfect fit because
they both say friend when they mean arms dealer but it makes sense the Israeli
government is happy to support an American president who deals in
antisemitism so long as he helps further their project of subjugating the
palestinian people but what’s in it for trump and the rest of them if they don’t
actually care about antisemitism why do they spend so much time and energy
trying to smear others is antisemitic well if you have a keen eye you may have
noticed a very subtle pattern regarding many of the people the right labels as
antisemitic it’s very subtle while the right seems to be immune from
accusations of antisemitism being accused of left-wing antisemitism while
female black brown or Muslim actually has consequences
take Marc Lamont Hill a now former CNN commentator who used the phrase from the
river to the sea during a 22 minute speech at the UN speaking out for
Palestinian human rights free Palestine from the river to the sea that’s right
out of a Hamas script that calls for the annihilation of Israel yeah but it
doesn’t though if you actually look into the history of that phrase it isn’t
actually a call to drive Jews into the Mediterranean it’s simply a common
saying from the Palestinians longing for a unified country again instead of
something that looks like this but of course CNN couldn’t be bothered to deal
with the whole context thing you know it’s only their fucking job it was just
easier to fire him and then there’s civil rights activists and icon Angela
Davis who won a prestigious civil rights award and then had it rescinded last
minute due to her Pro BDS stance now she did end up getting the award in the end
but imagine giving someone an award for civil rights activism and then taking it
away because she’s still doing civil rights activism that’s like taking away
Miss America’s crown because she actually did accomplish World Peace and
it’s not just individual activists getting smeared sometimes it’s the
entire movement for example black lives matter is constantly being attacked for
their support of BDS and their solidarity with Palestinians black lives
matter a group that just a couple of weeks ago launched an entire antiisrael
platform I care about black I’ve devoted my life to protecting black
lives but I will not support the organization black lives matter because
I have zero tolerance for antisemitism honestly I cannot look at that man’s
face without thinking about that clip where he denies having sex with any of
Jeffrey Epstein’s underage girls by claiming that he has a perfect perfect
sex life hell yeah go off King the right is even
called activists protesting the ice camps antisemitic representative
Alexandria Acacio Cortez called them concentration camps which prompted
Steven Miller the only Jew I know who says Jew with a hard J to say this I’m a
Jew as a Jew as an American Jew I am profoundly outraged by the comments from
Ocasio Cortez it is a historical smear it is a sinful comment it minimizes the
death of six million of my Jewish brothers and sisters it minimizes their
suffering your existence minimizes their suffering
dude I’m pretty sure Steven Miller’s uncle called the ADL on him hello is
this the ADL I’d like to report my nephew the pro-israel establishment has
been using the fear of antisemitism to stop American Jews from supporting the
very people and movements that are actively fighting against perpetrators
of antisemitic hate crimes in America people who are fighting white supremacy
people who are fighting for our rights to boycott people are fighting to
abolish concentration camps they want us to feel unsafe in left spaces unsafe on
college campuses with activists who are fighting for the civil rights and
equality for Palestinians because they’ve convinced us that a criticism of
Israel is an attack on Jews to take the bait that the right is dangling in front
of us to believe their claims of left antisemitism is not just
counterproductive to dismantling antisemitism but actively upholds white
supremacy and to be honest it worked for a long time I mean I used to be very
wary of anyone who criticized Israel especially if they weren’t Jewish but if
the last three years have shown us anything it’s that white supremacy has
always been the biggest threat to Jews in America Omar and Talib don’t scare me
criticism of Israeli policy doesn’t scare me the people shouting send her
back scared the bejesus Satta me or the by Moses thankfully more
and more people are starting to understand that criticism of Israeli
policy is not automatically antisemitism which is why every time
the rights Mears and Israel critic is antisemitic they now preface it with of
course you can criticize Israel but you can criticize Israel you can believe
Israel is wrong on everything well we can criticize Israel no country is
perfect that’s definitely for sure but you can have conversations all day long
about how you feel Palestinian politics how you feel about Israeli politics how
you feel about Netanyahu but but we never end up having that conversation do
we because there only takes one bad faith reading of a critique to claim
antisemitism and derail the entire conversation also did Megan McCain just
say Netanyahu I think she’s confusing Netanyahu and nosferatu which means that
she just confused a Jew with a blood sucking vampire blood sucking is an
antisemitic trope referring to the fear that Jews bake their matzah with
Christian blood therefore Meghan McCain is an antisemite see how easy that is

  1. Critcism of israel ofc is not antisemtism israelis critisise there goverment all the time, but anti zionism is anti semetism cause you are saying that jews dont have right to there homeland. and the problem is that most people that critisize israel doing it from anti zionsim and crtisizing the country its self and not the goverment, those people use the palestnians israeli conflict just as an excuse to hate on israel cause they dont really care about palestnians being murderd in syria they dont care that palestnians dont have rights in lebanon they care that israel distoryed a terroist house.

  2. I want to see a french jew that had to flee to israel cause of anti semtism hear that an american jew thinks israel isnt important to jews.

  3. what a waste of sperm, those girls are called anti semtic cause they both sympathyed with hamas, witch is a terror group calling for the distraction of israel and all jews.

  4. From the river to the sea is anti israel and anti semitic its simple as that, the word started to be used not by random palestnians but by arab leaders in the war of 1948, its like you are defending people who dosent want you.

  5. Where's Francesca?…

  6. So well argued and thought out. Refreshing to hear. However, I must chide you. Making it nearly to the end of this serious and important subject, I was forced, by you, to pause the video at 13:58 and laugh for three minutes straight because of "Be-Moses". Carry on!

  7. Soooooooo criticism of islam or things that Islamic doctrine advocates ISN'T ISLAMOPHOBIC???? Or disagree with gay marriage doesn't mean your homophobic?? Great……thanks

  8. I would have to disagree based on the fact that most criticism on Israel comes from sources that choose to ONLY criticize Israel and disregard a large list of countries that are found guilty of the same doing and sometimes found in even more problematic situations. I would also have to disagree with you on the point made at 10:30. “From the river to the sea” is a slogan used by Hamas who have stated in their public convenant on the destruction of Israel: ‘Israel will exist and will continue to exist until Islam will obliterate it, just as it obliterated others before it.’.

  9. I use to love BLM, until leftist activist took it over. Now it's for everyone's struggles when it was created specifically for ours, ADOS people. When in reality, everyone one of those folks they claim to fight for, will leave us in the dark and Never have our backs when the times is always needed.

  10. Lol according to Ben Shapiro half the Jews in Israel are "fake Jews" since they aren't religious either, and their "real" religion should be Zionism since that ideology/belief dictates their opinions and thoughts as opposed to religious belief.

  11. These videos are so good, how is it possible they never get to a million views ? I have seen BBQ videos with over have a million views…

  12. Israel is merely THE BUNKER state FoR THE Rothchilds.family. IT was not created as a homeland for all Jews but as a place for war criminals and those guilty of crimes against HUMANITY TO hide from the whole WORLDS RIGHTEOUS anger at their LoNG GENOCIDAL game against all the people of the WORLD SAVE other 1%ers.
    THE NONFASCIST JEWS OF ISRAEL AS WELL AS THE INNOCENT PALESTINIANS HAVE MY COMPLETE SUPPORT. MY RIGHTEOUS ANGER IS AGAINST THE CORPORATE THEOFASCIST LIKUD GOVT OF THE GENoCIDAL STATE OF ISRAEL. PALESTINIANS ARE THEIR FIRST COUSINS AND ALSO SEMETIC PEOPLE. BY LETING THEM MAKE PALIES ARABIC YOU SEEK TO MAKE IT OK TO KILL THEM ALL AND STEAL THEIR RESOURCES.
    TIME WE CALL O U T THE U.N. AND DEMAND THEY PROTECT THE PALESTINIANS FROM FASCIST ISRAELIS OR STOP PRETENDING TO B E THE UN WHEN THEY CLEARLY NO LONGER PROTECT THE OPPRESSED OF THE WORLD FROM FASCISTS.
    WE DEFINATELY HAVE A FAKE U.N. GOING ON HERE.

  13. Honestly, Angela Davis' support of BDS isn't why I side-eye her, it's her explicit support of Soviet persecution of Soviet Jews back in the 1970s (as well as her support of the Soviet Union's persecution of LGBT people, anti-corruption activists, reformers, etc.), which as far as I can tell she has never apologized for or recanted.

  14. Also you kinda lopped off why people thought Omar was being antisemitic with the whole Benjamins thing. It wasn't the Benjamins tweet, it was the association of the Benjamins with AIPAC specifically, which a lot of Jews took to be a stand-in for Jews (which admittedly may not have been Omar's intent, but it's not an unreasonable conclusion to jump to given how frequently antisemites will claim they don't oppose Jews, they just oppose [Organization made up primarily of Jews or organization whose supposedly Jewish membership we've spent a long time emphasizing])

  15. One final comment: the reason why a lot of Jews and non-Jews are deeply suspicious of pro-BDS and/or pro-Palestine people of being antisemites is that there are legitimate antisemites in the pro-Palestinian camp (Alison Weir anybody? Deadly Exchange–which was an antisemitic campaign by a Jewish pro-Palestinian group even!) and they almost never get called out by their supposedly not antisemitic compatriots.

  16. What if AJ+ ran a promo where you actually replace a White Supremacist selected by subscribers?

    I think you would be a fantastic Mel Gibson…

  17. I came here to confirmed my bias. Thank you. But you forgot to mentioned the foundation of American/Christians/Evangelical/Numerous Sect support of Israel; Christian Zionism, the biggest donors in AIPAC. They just want you Jews to regroup in Israel and become subjects/fodders/hippies (depending on which book you follow). Its All About The Second Coming Of Jesus, Baby.

  18. Criticism of the Israeli government all to often becomes a cover for ( and a pass ) for being antisemitic, especially for called "progressives".

  19. Thank you for this. My Jewish friends have provided me the opportunity to know that not all Jews support israelí policies. Unfortunately, most don’t have not been afforded the same opportunity.

  20. Saying the government of a nation does bad things doesn't mean you hate the people of that nation. American establishment politicians and pundits love weaponizing and manipulating anything and anyone that does play their game. As you can see they'll even hijack other cultures struggles even forcing it upon those who don't agree just to push their agenda. Oppressive governments do this all the time, this is how they manipulate their citizens' minds.

  21. 13:50 🤣 scares the bemoses.

    An atheist from a Muslim background salutes you Matt Lieb ✌

    My heart goes out to the Jewish people for millenia of triumph, struggle and agony, I hope we could build a better tomorrow away from the current situation.

  22. imagine being funded by a foreign government to trash a country and an entire race because you want to further the left's agenda of fear and hatred while also furthering the Islamic agenda of destroying Jews as a people… funny asf

  23. Thanks for the great piece, Matt! I always wondered why "antisemitism" came to mean a hatred of Jewish people. ALL peoples from that part of the world are "Semitic". Arabs and Palestinians are Semitic peoples. If you're for stopping the genocide of Palestinians then you are "pro-semitic" and not antisemitic. Think about it!

  24. This is full of lies and propaganda, granted it's littered with some truths to make it credible. AJ+ is a pro-muslim psychop, careful watch without a critical eye.

  25. I t blows me away how the American Gov. and others protect a country who shoot young boys in the head going to buy candy. Disgusting.

  26. Also, I was sitting here, asking my…. deity? yea deity…. for inspiration and knowledge, and yes, thank you, I think maybe ben shapiro has problems. So far, pretty good, life, good at just sneaking ben shapiro in there randomly without me understanding… why.

  27. Thanks Matt, excellent show. Especially covering AIPAC and top Democratic (Schumer) complicity in maintaining a status quo toward Israel. Their's, Israel, has been a money sink for some very brutal regimes, Netanyahu is a constant regarding an inhumanity towards Israel's Palestinians. The land grabbing by extremist Likud has shown their despotic nature. The West Bank dotted with very new, forcibly taken settlements. These have isolated Palestinian farmers from their olive groves and other. Speaking of this is what the horrid right-wing extremists like Ben S., FOX nutters, Trumpists, and the vast messaging machine they've developed under KOCH and other funding. We're drowned in their lunatic messaging, outright lying, and Sunday mornings are worthless news recaps now. The uselessness of allowing their liars to message that into American homes shows the stupidity of journalism toward authoritarianism, and the Oligarchy which controls it. The U.K.'s Labour party, and directly Corbyn, have been maliciously maligned about antisemitism. The same messaging that's happening here has hit Labour, and it works there too.

    I think there's every reason to know that the liars will continue, and get worse. That's why the stupidity to wait out this Trump disaster is so foul! Impeachment, so NY State can go forward with waiting indictments will go a long way toward what I want. Schumer and Pelosi have to go, and any who drag their feet to take the hellscape that this GOP loves back from them, and make it into a society of representative governance once again. They're (GOP) despots one and all, and have no place in our government, that's what's wrong with our DNC and top leaders, let alone top state leaders. My own here in Minnesota, @GovernorTimWalz runs on and on about "One Minnesota" when it's obvious that message to the @MnGOP here means one thing. They're all or nothing obstructionist destroyers. That's what they are, and what they're doing, and stopping them is the only objective! I've lived this stupidity since that lunatic Reagan got into office. He was as bad as these, but we hadn't the internet to get that out and analyze it on the scale we now have. Jaysus the dumbshit GOP has had this f'ing destruction going on for decades and it's like, no, we'll keep waiting, and waiting, and waiting. NO, done, no more waiting, They're OUT! and the @DNC has to stop being blind to our outrage and demand to end their horrors.

  28. In order to get your FEMA check for disaster relief, it is required by the U.S. Government that you promise NOT to boycott Israel. Really.

  29. If we continue to allow political propoganda smear phrases to shape and distort the clear thinking process and continue to fall for these conflations and language deception tactics, education is taking a battering as hard as OUR common plight is despite the two party duopoly.

  30. Its just that "criticism of Israel" can mean multiple things; criticizing the government, or the existence of Israel as a whole. Which one is being referred to here?

  31. The speaker glosses over the MAIN falsehood: There is NO SUCH THING as a "Palestinian". The arab representatives to the UN talks on partition INSISTED they are NOT Palestinian, but Syrians, Egyptians, etc. Only in the late 1960's AD did they vote to call themselves Palestinians as a political construct against the Jews. (BTW: If arabs are "Palestinians" so are Jews and Christians!). (See Zahier Muhsein). When Hamas needed help in a war against Israel we see a Hamas member beg Syrians, Egyptians, Lebanese, etc to help them. NOTE: "Palestinian was NOT mentioned".

  32. I'm afraid the the Israel confict is always different. Context is everything. You can't separate Israel from Jews as a people. History won't allow it. Right or wrong, it is simply so.

  33. Here is Al-Jazeera reporter Marah Elwadia promoting Hitler’s ideology in 2012
    https://twitter.com/BarryRosen1/status/1165279951588925440

  34. Al Jazeera op-ed praises synagogue massacre in Jerusalem of Rabbis by Palestinian terrorists in 2014.

    http://elderofziyon.blogspot.com/2014/11/al-jazeera-op-ed-praises-synagogue.html

  35. Look at how Al Jazeera lies.

    http://elderofziyon.blogspot.com/2017/02/al-jazeera-claims-israel-spreads-drugs.html

    Al Jazeera claims Israel spreads drugs among Jerusalem Arabs

  36. Did we forget about South Africa, and the Boda regime. If you believe in faith fairness and religion you surely can't believe in apartheid. Because unfortunately apartheid anywhere is a threat to civilization everywhere. Stop hiding behind religion implementing hate and Division. The most high revealing the prophecy of all the lies, the lying chickens coming home to roost. Wolf's in sheep's clothing white nationalist, neo-nazis, KKK, alt right, Russian billionaires, Christian evangelicals, corporate Democrats and Republicans and truly It's All About the Benjamins. They'll be known for the hatred fruit that they bear and the racist ignorance that they share through a pathological lying president that really don't care.

  37. So, you did point out a real problem. Criticism of Israel absolutely is not anti-semitism. However, there is actually a reality of anti-semites using anti-zionist language to hide their anti-semitic ideology. There also is just a very real and true Islamic anti-semitism which you seem to have completely ignored for some reason. No, I don't think Tlaib or Ilhan are anti-semites. I do think you should have been a harsher on the "Israel hypnotized" tweet though and said that she has improved from that error. Also, since when is that not a common anti-semitic trope? It's literally the cultural bolshevik trope which the Nazis invented that the Jews control the world through a shadow government. However, their not my concern. We can't just deny that there are anti-semites among us when there absolutely are. Not all pro palestine orgs are inherently good. Hamas being an obvious example. There are also very really anti-semitic connections among Muslim organizations in America, notoriously the Nation of Islam. Linda Sarsour, Tamika Mallory, and Zahra Billoo from the Women's March are all 3 way too close to a blatantly anti-semitic organization known as a hate group according to the SPLC. Basically, you could have made a good point and just stated that the "left anti-semitism" is actually fringe and overblown, but you instead went full denialist. That's not a good look either. Yes, the right wing anti-semites are significantly more dangerous in America currently, but the left and Islamic ones aren't not dangerous either. Racism and other forms of bigotry are often more complicated than these cookie cutter formulas of good and bad. Do better.

  38. A channel funded by a racist Muslim country is trying to preach to America. Youtube should really start deleting divisive propaganda. This channel is worst than RT.

  39. This video proves that Israel is nothing without the United States backing. I believe that every citizen has the right to criticize it's government policy even if it's right or wrong. Israel gets too much protection from the United States and as a taxpayer, I don't agree with a lot of things that has to do with Israel.

  40. Being antisemetic is a bad thing
    Hating Israel is a bad thing
    Stop trying to make Palestinians the victim as a jew i can tell you we hate Muslims because they hate us this is mutual hate and terror stop trying to make anyone a victim

  41. Nobody in history has ever claimed criticizing Israel is anti-Semitic. Saying anti-Semitic things about Israel and Israelis is anti-Semitic.

  42. Yea. There are a lot of right wing racists. I don’t know if I’d compare not liking Jews to Al Jazeera’s position of total extermination though.

  43. LOVE THIS!!!! 💕👍 Thank you for ousting right-wing Zionist BIGOTRY!!! I have 3 words for Trump…. SEND HIM BACK!!! …under the gold-leafed rock he crawled out from under. And…. Dershowitz too 🤢🤮
