American Organized Jewry led by ADL’s Jonathan Greenblatt have blasted Georgia’s Afro-American Buddhist Congressman Henry C. (Hank) Johnson over comparing Israel’s illegal Jew settlers with ‘termites’.
On July 25, Hank Johnson, a member of House Armed Service Committee, speaking at a conference in Philadelphia sponsored by End the Occupation said: “There has been a steady stream – almost like termites can get into a residence and eat before you know that you’ve been eaten up and you fall in on yourself– there has been settlement activity that has marched forward with impunity and at an ever increasing rate to the point where it has become alarming,” said Johnson.
The other speakers included Congressman Keith Ellison, Dr. James Zogby, founder and president of the Arab American Institute, and Linda Sarsour, co-founder of the Muslim Democratic Club of New York.
With no personal malice toward any of those four speakers, even they have said in the past that Israel has the right to exist within pre-1967 borders.
Under pressure from fellow Jewish and Black Democrat lawmakers, Johnson apologized on Twitter saying: “Poor choice of words – apologies for offense. Point is settlement activity continues slowly undermine Two-state solution.”
On July 28, in an Opinion Post at The Jewish Press, Morton Klein, president of ZOA slammed Jonathan Greenblatt for accepting antisemite Johnson’s apology.
Rabbi David Wolfe is the only one who told the truth about the tormentors of Hank Johnson. He said that his tormentors’ real problem is not his comparison of the illegal Jew settlers with ‘termites’ – but because “the congressman from Georgia is too sympathetic to Palestinians, and too critical of Israel.” By apologizing, Johnson fell into Jewish Lobby’s trope of being guilty of antisemitism. He would be very fortunate if the lobby ignore the ‘termite’ comment during the next congressional election.
Hank Johnson is one of very few lawmakers who have dared to cross AIPAC ‘Red Line’. On February 17, 2016, Johnson wrote a very anti-Israel letter to Crypto-Jew John Kerry.
Johnson’s letter urged John Kerry to do as the Leahy Law requires, and make a determination if Israel and Egypt, which receives 75% of annual USAID, have engaged in gross violations of human rights. The letter calls Kerry’s attention to specific cases of extrajudicial killings of Palestinians and the use of torture by Israeli security forces, and it cites the Egyptian military regime’s 2013 massacre of as many as a thousand unarmed civilians at Rab’aa Square, which the US-based Jewish Human Rights group HRW describes as the world’s largest killing of demonstrators in a single day in recent history.
Hank Johnson campaigned for Bernie Sanders, a con Zionist Jew.
On October 5, 2014, the American Enterprise Institute (AEI) linked monthly Washingtonian declared Congressman Johnson “the worst speaker and most clueless lawmaker.”
In 2013, David Horowitz’s FrontPage magazine boasted that according to an Iranian Ayatullah, Buddhism was established by Jews.
