“My parents tried to inculcate me a little bit into organized Judaism, but they weren’t particularly devoted to that, and my grandparents were, but it just never took hold.”
– Wikipedia quote attributed to Glenn Greenwald
Is there anyone more antisemitic than a former Jew, turned against his own people? In Glenn Greenwald’s case, hatred of Jews and Israel could not be more evident than in his Jan. 9, 2015 column in The Intercept, a publication funded by Ebay founder Pierre Morad Omidyar through his First Look Media
Greenwald maintains in a horrific column that he is providing the other side of the Charlie Hebdo controversy about whether media should publish cartoons, which may be considered abhorrent to the followers of a religion. To do this, he explains that he will offer us cartoons that have not been widely published, because they were considered offensive content by members of religious groups, other than Muslims. The very misleading title of his column is:
“In Solidarity with a Free Press: Some More Blasphemous Cartoons”
But he doesn’t fulfill than promise. There are no cartoons offending Hindus, Buddhists, Catholics, Protestants or Mormons. Just Jews!
These are hateful cartoons, not just the usual hiding behind criticism of Israel, but many are the full blown evil antisemitism cartoons, the same ilk as the one in the London Sunday Times depicted here in a recent post. Some readers thought that was an “exception”, but the following proves that the plague is everywhere:
