Max Blumenthal’s Latest “White” Lie
Last week, in the wake of news Hamas had captured an Ethiopian Israel, pathological Israel hater Max Blumenthal embarked on a Twitter rant to show how racist Israel is against “non-White” Israelis.
Unlike Mengistu, the 3 teens were white Ashkenazim, easily relatable to Jewish Israelis. One reason for the #bringbackourboys campaign.

Leaving aside the fact Blumenthal is a cheerleader for Hamas who kidnapped the poor man to begin with – and does not seem bothered by their racism – he is also once again lying.
Here is a photo of the three murdered teens Eyal Yifrach, Gilad Shaar, and Naftali Frenkel.
As you can clearly see from the photo, Eyal Yifrach (on the left) was no “white Ashkenazi.”
It is also a lie to imply only “white Ashkenazim” would be relatable for Jewish Israelis. In fact, the majority of Israeli Jews are Mizrahi i.e. Jews who trace their roots back to Muslim-majority countries.
Max Blumenthal and Israel-haters like him are kind of like The Force in Star Wars – in the sense they can “have a strong influence on the weak-minded.”
Or, perhaps more accurately, those who are either too willing to believe the lies or too lazy to question them (hat tip: Adam).
