“Russian actions on its own doorstep in Eastern Europe do not in fact threaten the United States or any actual vital interest. Nor does Moscow threaten the U.S. through its intervention on behalf of the Syrian government in the Middle East. That Russia is described incessantly as a threat in those areas is largely a contrivance arranged by the media, the Democratic and Republican National Committees and by the White House. Candidate Donald Trump appeared to recognize that fact before he began listening to Michael Flynn, who has a rather different view. Hopefully the old Trump will prevail,there is, however, another country that has interfered in U.S. elections, has endangered Americans living or working overseas and has corrupted America’s legislative and executive branches. It has exploited that corruption to initiate legislation favorable to itself, has promoted unnecessary and unwinnable wars and has stolen American technology and military secrets. Its ready access to the mainstream media to spread its own propaganda provides it with cover for its actions and it accomplishes all that and more through the agency of a powerful and well-funded domestic lobby that oddly is not subject to the accountability afforded by the Foreign Agents Registration Act (FARA) of 1938 even though it manifestly works on behalf of a foreign government. That country is, of course, Israel” Said Assange.
When I see such sentiments, I always suspect antisemitism – I can’t help it, my experience tells me 9 times out of 10 this is what is at play – but I demand more proof.
And there have been indications of this. Even The Forward has detailed them.
Let’s now put the theorizing to rest. Assange is a Jew hater.
Assange has already spoken about a “powerful and well-funded domestic lobby” – which echoes some antisemitic conspiracy theories – but why did he just characterize those objecting to Craig Murray as rich ultra- Zionist bullies?
The person suing Murray is Jake Wallis Simons, Associate Editor of the Daily Mail Online. He is part Jewish and there is no evidence he is rich.
Without saying the J-word, I believe Julian Assange is suggesting it is rich Jooooooos who are the bullies behind the attempt to bankrupt his friend. At the very least, he has endorsed Craig Murray’s view that Israel is illegitimate.
Even if you like the idea of whistle-blowers, do not be fooled by Julian Assange. He is not a good person.
