Bankrupt Antisemite Kimberly Hawkins’ Latest Antisemitic Libel (Updated)

Kimberly Hawkins, the bankrupt antisemite who denies she hates Jews, has posted the following on her Instagram account:

Note the language she uses in her caption: “Professional grifters x 75+ years.” To whom is she referring? Clearly, she is referring to the Jewish people, since the Zelensky’s are not Israeli. And there is no proof they are even Zionist Jews. If anything, indications are they aren’t.

Zelensky has posted frequently on social media about his love for his parents. He deals differently with his Jewish roots, which he has neither denied nor frequently highlighted. In one exchange typical of his dry humor in 2019, he told an interviewer from France: “The fact that I am Jewish barely makes 20 in my long list of faults.” He also told an interviewer that his father had prohibited him from accepting a scholarship to study in Israel after high school.

The allegation seems to be from a Telegram channel called Nezygar.

According to the authors of Nezygar, on May 6, the father and mother of the Ukrainian leader received Israeli citizenship. Already at the age of 19, Zelensky’s parents entered the country and settled in the family house of businessman Igor Kolomoisky.

Analysts of the Telegram channel emphasized that the parents of the head of Ukraine decided to buy a villa and three cars for a new passport. The acquisitions cost them 790 thousand euros.

Villa refers to a 50 square meter mansion located in Rishpon city. On its territory there is a large swimming pool. The four-man British special forces act as bodyguards for Zelensky’s parents. They were allocated a separate building with an area of ​​​​120 square meters.

Nezygar is allegedly controlled by the Putin administration, so would clearly be interested in spreading disinformation about Zelensky and Israel.

I have not seen the source allegation in the Nezygar channel, but if it is anything like what has been reported above, it makes no sense anyway.

  • 50 square meters represents a tiny apartment, not a mansion. A look at the full photo Hawkins and others posted shows these people are hardly living an extravagant lifestyle:
  • 759,000 Euros equates to approximately 2.75 million shekels. That won’t land you a mansion anywhere in Israel.
  • Why would Zelensky employ British special forces as bodyguards, when he could employ ex IDF commandos? And how would Israel even allow British special forces to be acting as bodyguards here?

There are other versions with different details, but also spread by Russian sources.

Let’s not also forget that there have been other allegations concerning Zelensky’s supposed mansions overseas, and they have also been attributed to a Russian disinformation campaign.

Besides, if this was true, it would have been all over the Israeli news. Yet the only ones “reporting” this are dodgy websites and anti-Israel social media accounts.

Once again, Kimberly Hawkins demonstrates how those claiming they are only against Israel and “Zionists” are actual antisemites quick to cast aspersions on Jews at the drop of a hat, based on the flimsiest of “sources.”

Update 6/10/22: Hawkins has deleted the post after I tagged her in a Tweet calling out her antisemitism in posting such fake news about Jews.
