On Monday, Abraham Foxman, former president of ADL of B’nai B’rith condemned GOP front-runner anti-Muslim Donald Trump for his Heil Hitler gesture over the weekend where he asked supporters in Orlando to raise their hands and pledge their allegiance to him (see below a video with comments by The Young Turks, a TV-UT empire created by Cenk Uygur and his two Jewish friends in 2002).
“As a Jew who survived the Holocaust, to see an audience of thousands of people raising their hands in what looks like the ‘Heil Hitler’ salute is about as offensive, obnoxious and disgusting as anything I thought I would ever witness in the United States of America,” Abe Foxman told The Times of Israel.
Abe Foxman had good reason to whine. For example, two weeks ago ADL had slammed Trump over his ignorance of David Duke and KKK .
On Tuesday, Donald Trump responded (CNN) that comparison of loyalty pledge he administered and Nazi Germany, Heil Hitler salute are “ridiculous” and “crazy”. However, he promised the Organized Jewry that he would look into that because he doesn’t want to offend anyone.
Interestingly, Abe Foxman didn’t condemn Hillary Clinton when she made a similar gesture in the past. May be because Hillary Clinton is Israel’s favorite choice as next US president. According to a recent survey conducted among Israeli Jews – 67% of them preferred Hillary Clinton over Jewish Bernie Sanders.
Israeli leaders have always preferred Crypto-Jews over open-Jew in the White House. Hillary Clinton has more pro-Israel record among all the presidential candidates. For example on July 7, 2015, she wrote a letter to Clinton family’s mega-donor, Jewish oligarch Haim Saban seeking his advice to counter BDS. Saban is more racist and warmongering Jew than Benjamin Netanyahu. He has been quoted on Iran, “I would bomb the daylight out of those SOBs.” Hillary voted for the US invasion of Iraq for Israel, and still refuses to admit that it was based on lies. She along with other pro-Israel neocons not only campaigned for a pro-Israel regime-change in Libya in 2011, but also made a Talmudic comment on CBS News after learning the grisly vigilante execution of Libyan leader Qaddafi: “We, we saw, he died.”
The second husband of Hillary’s grandmother was Max Rosenberg, a Russian Jew, according to CBS News, August 6, 1999 (here).
As head of ADL for 50 years, Abe Foxman was famous for lying about everything concerning Israel and Jews. One cannot expect him to change at old age now.
“In World War II, when Abraham Foxman’s parents fled to escape the Nazis, they left him, a child of 2, in Vilnius, Lithuania, with his Christian nanny. She had him baptized as a Catholic,” says Frank J. Prial, NYT, May 5, 1991.
In December 2015, Russian president Vladimir Putin endorsed Donald Trump.
