The shame, hatred and megalomania driving the world’s wealthiest anti-Semite.
… George Soros hates the Jews of Israel who became neither collaborators nor victims, but fought and won, above all else. The existence of Israel is a shameful reminder of his treachery and cowardice.
“Attitudes toward Israel are influenced by Israel’s policies, and attitudes toward the Jewish community are influenced by the pro-Israel lobby’s success in suppressing divergent views,” he has claimed.
He blamed the “resurgence of anti-Semitism in Europe” on Israel and insisted that, “If we change that direction, then anti-Semitism also will diminish.”
In Soros’ twisted mind, Jews are to blame for anti-Semitism.
Soros does not want to be Jewish. He is deeply ashamed of his Jewish roots. He blames Jews for anti-Semitism. And while he avoids Jewish events and organizations, occasionally he makes an exception.
A Hungarian Jewish cultural event with Hungarian dancers, musicians, and traditional foods, lured Soros out to present an award to a writer. Instead, Soros was booed for a rant in which he compared Israelis to the Nazis in front of an audience of Holocaust survivors.
“I heard what happened. If I had been there,” Elie Wiesel later said. “I would have walked out.”
While Soros compared Israel to the Nazis, he has defended Islamic terrorists who murder Jews.
“America and Israel must open the door to Hamas,” Soros urged in a Financial Times editorial. “Neither Hamas nor Hezbollah can be treated merely as targets in the war on terror because both have deep roots in their societies,” he argued in another editorial. ……
The media has falsely claimed that criticism of George Soros is an anti-Semitic trope. And yet Soros has defended the use of anti-Semitic tropes. “The fact that constructive critics of Israel say things that, when taken out of context or paraphrased in provocative ways, can be made to sound similar to the comments of anti-Semites does not make them anti-Semitic,” he had insisted.
After defending anti-Semitic tropes aimed against Israel, Soros is playing the victim.
