One of America’s top defenders of Israel, Abraham Foxman, the head of the Jewish lobby group ADL has demanded that Kayne West should apologize to world Jewry for accusing Jews having immense power in the United States.
Kayne West is being accused as a Jew hater for commenting during a interview with 105.1 FM radio in New York City last month, in which he said that Afro-Americans (22%) don’t have power like Jews (2%) in the country.
“We don’t got it like that. When I tell you only seven black billionaires, look at marginalization, and we feel like we happy because me and Rick Ross got it made, or I got a spread outside, a couple of us, or they put a black president. Man, let me tell you something about George Bush and oil money and Obama and no money. People want to say Obama can’t make these moves or he’s not executing. That’s because he hasn’t got those connections. Black people don’t have the same level of connections as Jewish people. Black people don’t have the same connection as oil people. You know we don’t know nobody that got a nice house. You know we don’t know nobody with paper like that we can go to when we down. You know they can just put us back or put us in a corporation. You know we are not in that situation. Can you guarantee that your daughter can get a job at this radio station? But if you own this radio station, you could guarantee that. That’s what I’m talking about,” said West.
Interestingly, the Jewish groups applauded vice-President Joe Biden, when he made a similar statement during an address at the Jewish American Heritage Month reception in Washington DC, on May 21, 2013.
This is not the first time West has irked the organized Jewry. He had been Jewish Lobby “problem” for many years. Earlier, West was chased by Jewish groups for comparing Black people’s plight with the Jewish sufferings (Holocaust) in one of his lyrics.
Personally, I think Mr. West was wrong to compare Black people’s plight with Holocaust, which has become the new Jewish religion. But, I have to admit that historically the original followers of prophet Jacob (Israel), were Black people.
Debbie Schlussel, an Islamophobe Zionist Jew, in her blog entry on September 2009, called Kanye West “racist” and “Muslim” (none of which is true). She also claimed that West got away with his racism because he belongs to a minority group. How ironic she is calling other racist while some of her own tribe groups are trying to distance themselves for her hatred toward Arabs, Muslims and Blacks. In April 2011, Rabbi Joseph Krakoff banned her from entering his synagogue. Read a sample of her Jewish bigotry here.
Jewish political commentator, Bill Maher, has also admitted on his television show, “Based on every statement I’ve heard from every Republican in the last two years, the Israelis are controlling our government.” And when he said that, the studio audience gave him a huge applause. Kanye West did not go that far, but the ADL issued no press releases or charges against Maher.
Former Republican Senator Chuck Hagel, the current US Secretary of Defense, said that “The Jewish lobby intimidates a lot of people up here [in the Senate, but] I’m a United States senator. I’m not an Israeli senator.”
Tingba Muhammad wrote on December 19, 2013 saying that Kanye West has joined the group of Blacks like Malcolm X, Bishop Desmond Tutu, Cynthia McKinney, Louis Farrakhan and Nelson Mandela, who were all labeled “Jew haters” for standing up to the organized Jewry.
“Kanye West took great umbrage at the ADL insult and at his Chicago concert last week he was defiant, telling the crowd that he spoke with The Honorable Minister Louis Farrakhan and that he wasn’t apologizing for anything, saying to the contrary that he will be standing up to his accusers even stronger,” wrote Muhammad.
