Aaron N Rice, J Street Leader, Compares Israel To Nazi Regime

I was pretty shocked last night when I saw this tweet comparing Israel’s proposed law to mandate NGO transparency to Hitler’s rise to power in Nazi Germany:

The quoted tweet is this one:

The first thing I wanted to know was, who is the jackass that wrote this? And the answer was definitely #ShockingNotShocking. According to his Twitter profile, he is “J Street National Leadership.”

But wait, I thought, anyone can pretty much say anything on twitter. Is that really true? Well, according to his bio on the website at the lawfirm at which he is a partner, Baker & McKenzie, it’s true. It’s listed right under the heading “Corporate Social Responsibility.” Ahem. I’m sure his clients will be really happy to know that he’s spouting such drivel on the internet.

J Street claims to be pro-Israel, but repeatedly we see its leadership taking warped positions that just can’t be described as such. As to whether or not the tweet is anti-Semitic, I’ll just quote the State Department’s definition of anti-Semitism and let you decide for yourself:

What is Anti-Semitism Relative to Israel?

Examples of the ways in which anti-Semitism manifests itself with regard to the state of Israel, taking into account the overall context could include . . . Drawing comparisons of contemporary Israeli policy to that of the Nazis.

Here’s the screenshot.
