Anti-Israel Dumbass of the Day: Patrick Henningsen

Patrick Henningsen is a conspiracy theorist who describes himself on Twitter/X as a “Geopolitical analyst.”

Here he is displaying some of his formidable analysis on Israel:

What this photo actually shows is the exact opposite of what this geopolitical analyst genius claims. It shows some of the beneficial results of Zionism – the development of a city along with all the amenities and culture that go a long with it. This is, of course, a photo of the city of Tel Aviv, which was just sand dunes before being founded by Jewish immigrants and constructed from 1909 onwards. And it did not just benefit the Jews but also the Arabs and other minorities living in adjacent Jaffa.

Not that this logic has a chance of penetrating Henningsen’s rather oversized forehead:

As I have repeatedly written over the years, no-one claim there wasn’t a place called British Mandate Palestine before the reestablishment of Israel in 1948. Besides, this is a strawman; Henningsen was trying to use this photo of Zionist innovation and development to show the exact opposite.

It is no wonder Henningsen is a regular on Iran’s Press TV.
