Israelis rise against Netanyahu, the “crime minister”

Are the Israeli protesters anti-Semites for rising up against Netanyahu’s perpetual corruption? If the answer is no, then why are we being called names for simply addressing basic facts? Does the anti-Semitism card carry any political or intellectual force?

Netanyahu is obviously mad and sad again. He thought that victory was within his grasp when Trump announced that Jerusalem will be Israel’s capital. Now he is realizing that thousands upon thousands of Israelis are rising up against him.

It has been reported that at least 10,000 Israelis have taken to the streets of central Tel Aviv to send a simple message to Benjamin Netanyahu. The message states: “Netanyahu to jail.”[1] Other signs also says, “Bibi is an embarrassment”; “Corrupted, we’re fed up with you,” or “Corrupted, go home” or “Sweeping out the corrupted.”[2] Netanyahu, we are told, is a “crime minister.”[3] Since the mad man is a crime minister, the protesters came “to drive out corruption.”[4]

Amos Levy, a Tel Aviv resident who attended the protest with his 6-year-old son, said: “We love this country. That is why we can’t let corruption continue and why we can’t let our leaders continue to lie to us.”[5]

We obvioulsy have a serious problem here. Netanyahu is being denounced as a wicked person in Israel, but American politicians, most specifically Republican puppets, are praising the man as if he is Simon bar Kokhba or some other Jewish messiah. If any politician even criticizes the mad man in Tel Aviv, he or she will be denounced as an anti-Semite or something equally weird.

Political whore Ann Coulter once declared that she would love America to have a president like Netanyahu.[6] So what would she say to the Israelis who are now chasing the mad man with pitchforks? And doesn’t that tell you something about people like Coulter? Shouldn’t these people be ashamed of themselves by now? Shouldn’t they start apologizing to the American people for licking the boots of the mad man in Tel Aviv?

Moreover, are the Israeli protesters anti-Semites for rising up against Netanyahu’s perpetual corruption? If the answer is no, then why are we being called names for simply addressing basic facts? Does the anti-Semitism card carry any political or intellectual force?

  1. One must realize those 10,000 demonstrators – many wearing their yamulkes & patent fashion-fails are all anti-semites. Throw in Israeli police investigating Net’n-Yahoo & his dirty family. Anti-semites. Devils are allowed to do whatever evil they please. Standing next to Net’n-Yahoo, Satan, Lucifer & Beelzebub are inexperienced amateurs. The fact that the Capo dei Capi of Evil got an unprecedented 29 STANDING ovations in one speech before the US congress is prima facie evidence that he is speaking to a Circle of Devils. Naturally, these underling goblins break out in orgiastic applause for their true leader

  2. Gary Loiseau from Facebook,

    “Why doesn’t Trump have them arrested?”

    Because Trump will not arrest those who put him in power.

  3. How can the term “anti-Semite” mean anything when 97% of today’s Jews are not of the Semitic gene pool? Find me a Semitic Jew who can prove he is what he claims to be. The term “anti-Semite” is a weapon, used to defame the character of anyone who criticizes the behavior of a Jew. Remember what happened when Bernie Madoff committed what is often referred to as the biggest fraud in US history? The ADL’s Alan Dershowitz accused Bernie’s critics as “anti-semites”. Myers Lansky’s critics were also “anti-semites”.

    • When Zionism was officially declared as a form of racism at the U.N., the U.N. was being “anti-Semitic”. When the international community votes to hold Israel to the same standards as every other nation, the international community is labeled as “anti-semites”. Suggesting that Israel returns the land it stole by violent military force-to it’s rightful owners, is “anti-Semitic”. Mentioning Israel’s illegal nuclear program is “anti-Semitic”. Criticizing Israeli clout in America in “anti-Semitic.”

    • Will someone please tell these delusional khazars that the Arabs are the worlds largest existing Semitic population, and point out that no one treats these true semites, worse than Israel. How many millions of innocent Semitic Arab lives have been ruined since the foundation of the modern imposter, apartheid state of Israel? Those atheist/Marxist ashkeNazi’s that founded the apartheid state have no more right to Palestine than the millions of Chinese Muslims. Their ancestors NEVER lived there.

    • Correction: “Criticizing Israeli clout in America ‘is’ “anti-Semitic.”

      Anyone can become a “Jew” at any point in their life, but that does not make you a Semite. Just like how converting to Islam does not make you an Arab.

    • The horses mouth? I’m confused…Are you suggesting that I am a Jew? If so, I can assure you that I most certainly am not. Nor would I profess to be the highest authority on anything. I’m just a guy who lives to question everything and share the results of my findings.

  4. Boo-hoo, boo-hoo

    Trump has landed Bibi (Bird Brain) in deep doo-doo over his Jerusalem boo-boo. Maybe next time Bibi (Bird Brain) needs a hand from Trump, he will at least have the sense to cover his rear end. Remember the story of the fledgling birdie that fell from its nest and the warmth of the splatter from a passing cow kept it alive through the cold night only for a fox to sniff it out at sunlight and scoff it. Moral of story: It is not always your worst enemies who leave you in doo-doo nor for that matter is it your best friends who take you out of it; Bird Brain.

  5. Perhaps Israel needs now a non-anglophile leader more than ever, someone who will not be a mascot or favorite puppy for US think-tanks. Bibi managed to screw up everything he could for Israel plus dipping his hands in innocent blood all over Middle East. And such deeds don’t go unnoticed, not even his compatriots or his children are immune to such negativity.

  6. War criminality and corruption criminality does not know borders, states, nations religions or ethnicities, and it cannot be amnested by any personal or collective tragedy such as holocausts and genocides or the “lack of territory”. One doesn’t have to be a super virtous semite to figure that out, just an average open-minded one will suffice.

  7. Any phrase or brand loses it’s magnetism unless it is founded in something solid. Racism is a word that is easily processed, it deals with basic things. Any idiot can tell an Asian from a Black person. Semite is kinda grey because on a good day most folks couldn’t tell a Israeli Hebrew from a Dutch Amish living in Pennsylvania. Racism can be a misused phrase and still not lose potency, but anti-semitism has lost it’s luster from overuse, and that was clearly warned about by Jews in Israel. If you have an unpopular friend that causes trouble, at what point do you tell them they are on their own ? It is behavioral, not genetic origin. It is blind commitment in the face of intolerable injustice, that laws of treason were made for.
