Bankrupt Antisemite Kimberly Hawkins Shares Blood Libel From Iran’s Press TV

Kimberly Hawkins, the bankrupt (literally and morally) owner of the now defunct Foodbenders woke restaurant, seems to now have more time to spread her antisemitism on social media – one of the perks of being a business failure.

She just posted the following on her Instagram stories (hat tip: Stephen):

Blaming Jews for torturing non-Jewish children has echoes of the medieval, antisemitic blood libel. It is of course a malicious lie, one I debunked in 2018 (There is absolutely no indication these children were hung on the fence by Jews, or that this photo was even taken in Israel, but Arabic speakers seem to know who the perpetrator was).

Beyond that, note how Hawkins has shared the photo from another Instragram account, that of the antisemitic, Iranian-run Press TV. She has actually appeared on there before, so this is nothing surprising.
