“Outraged by expressions of anti-Semitism, neo-Nazism and racism. Everyone should oppose this hatred,” Netanyahu wrote on his English-language Twitter account on Tuesday, without mentioning Charlottesville by name. However, Netanyahu’s son, Yair, was seemingly more concerned by the counterprotesters in Charlottesville.
“I’m a Jew, I’m an Israeli, the neo nazis scums [sic] in Virginia hate me and my country.
But they belong to the past. Their breed is dying out,” he wrote on his personal Facebook page under the name Yair Hun. “However, the thugs of [left-wing anti-fascist group] Antifa and BLM [Black Lives Matter] who hate my country (and America too in my view) just as much are getting stronger and stronger and becoming super dominant in American universities and public life.”
Former Israeli Prime Minister Ehud Barak, however, was forced to admit that the ethnically-conscious Alt Right were no different from major elements of Israeli society.
Former Prime Minister Ehud Barak said Wednesday that the neo-Nazi rally in Charlottesville last Saturday was reminiscent of recent events in Israel. Barak cited demonstrations held by the anti-assimilationist group Lehava and the rants against IDF Chief of Staff Lt. Gen. Gadi Eisenkot over the Sgt. Elor Azaria manslaughter trial.
…Speaking on Facebook, Barak also blasted Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s feeble, belated response to recent anti-Semitic events in the United States.
“What’s happening in the United States is a struggle over the country’s way. There are displays of racism, neo-Nazism and other dark sides of the human spirit. We must fight it. It’s terrorism against the American people,” Barak said.
“An Israeli leader should have responded to that within six hours, and immediately voiced our position as brothers of the great community in the United States, the Jewish community, who are under threat.”
Barak said certain events that have taken place in Israel are like what happened in Charlottesville. “You can’t say you don’t see things here that have a similar smell or bear a certain similarity ‒ when you look at the Lehava demonstrations or the La Familia activity, or the ranting against the chief of staff or journalists and the threat to the lives of journalists covering Netanyahu’s investigations, or to their family members,” Barak said.
“All these displays are what I have called budding fascism and should be stopped with a firm hand,” he continued. [We need] a democracy that believes in its way. A Jewish state must struggle for its way; an active, not a passive struggle. Such things must not be allowed to pass.”
Lehava are the people who turn up to protest at weddings where a Jew is marrying a non-Jew. (link) Also recall the outrage in Israel a few years ago when it was reported that Yair Netanyahu was dating an impure goyim Norwegian girl. (link)
