Is it Anti-Semitic to Criticise George Soros? Let’s Ask Israel By Peter Ewer
A position has emerged that it is anti-Semitic to criticise George Soros, presumably on anything. How does one counter this? Does one go silent, or roll over and die? These are no doubt very good strategies. Or, we could ask Israel for an umpire’s decision:
“Israel’s foreign ministry has issued a statement denouncing U.S. billionaire George Soros, a move that appeared designed to align Israel more closely with Hungary ahead of a visit to Budapest next week by Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu. Soros, a Hungarian-born Jew who has spent a large part of his fortune funding pro-democracy and human rights groups, has repeatedly been targeted by Hungary’s right-wing government, in particular over his support for more open immigration. In the latest case, Prime Minister Viktor Orban has backed a campaign in which Soros is singled out as an enemy of the state. “Let’s not allow Soros to have the last laugh” say billboards next to a picture of the 86-year-old investor, a campaign that Jewish groups and others say foments anti-Semitism.”
So there we have it; the empire has given their decision, and we will play by those rules.
