Benjamin Netanyahu Is Fine With Anti-Semites — as Long as They Support Israel’s Occupation

Benjamin Netanyahu often accuses his political opponents of anti-Semitism, but has no qualms surrounding himself with actual card-carrying anti-Semites.

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu likes to accuse critics of Israel of being anti-Semites. But how does he explain his own glaring ties to anti-Semitic world leaders and evangelical preachers, not to mention his defense of Adolf Hitler and his son’s attack on George Soros? Does defending Israel’s occupation of Palestinian lands make you immune from the charge of anti-Jewish hatred?

In this video, I ask whether the prime minister of Israel is part of the solution to rising anti-Semitism — or part of the problem.
