Times of Israel Lies About Pamela Geller, Robert Spencer

Daniel Greenfield, FrontPageMag.com 

I have a firm policy of not linking to the Times of Israel. Despite its name, the paper is a left-wing anti-Israel smear site. This is another reminder why.

The Times of Israel ran a press release for HIAS, masquerading as an article, by Cathryn J. Prince. The article praised HIAS, an organization in the lucrative trade of resettling “refugees” in America while endangering the Jewish community in this country.

Cathryn J. Prince. cynically attempted to conflate Nazis with Jewish critics of HIAS in paragraphs like this.

“Former imperial wizard of the KKK David Duke and head of the controversial American Freedom Defense Initiative Pamela Geller are among those sending the offensive tweets.”

What does Pamela Geller have in common with David Duke? Nothing. One could more easily class HIAS with Hamas. They both support Muslim migrants coming to America. HIAS official Jennie Rosenn, who is talked up by Cathryn J. Prince in her article, had even signed a letter urging the US to work with a Hamas government.

But then Cathryn J. Prince goes even further.

“After the ADL launched the campaign, people such as Pamela Geller, who is Jewish, started sending arguably anti-Semitic and anti-Muslim tweets. Together with Richard Spencer, Geller directs the American Freedom Defense Initiative, a group the Southern Poverty Law Center has designated as “anti-Muslim.”

Pamela Geller works together with Counterterrorism expert and Islam scholar, Robert Spencer. Richard Spencer is an Alt Right Nazi who has been in the news lately for, among other things, attacking Jews.

The two men have nothing in common.

Did Cathryn J. Prince and her editors at the Times of Israel really not know any better? Or did they think that they could get away with pretending that it was an innocent mistake?

In this environment of Fake News media malfeasance, it’s hard to know.

    Richard or Robert Spencer. Another convenient misrepresentation of facts for the benefit of the author or publication.

    I have just this morning engaged in a brief, but heated comment debate with what I presume is a Jewish man (screen name, comment history). I had originally posted a comment referring to FrontPageMagazine that questioned why Jews fear White Christian anti-Semitism but not muslim anti-Semitism, and references a Jewish man that discussed the absurdity of it. I also posted a link to an article on “Sanctuary Synagogues” for muslim refugees effected by Trump’s initial executive order, and links to Jewish organizations that are actively bringing muslim refugees to the U.S.

    The initial reply?:

    ….why Jews fear Christian anti-semitism more then they fear Muslims….2000 years of Christian anti-semitism starting with the taking of our religion and holy books by early Christians….taking of our reputations and dignity thru denigration…..segregation of Jews into ghetto’s from the Christian communities we lived….taking of our lives and children mostly in Christian countries during the holocaust while the world did nothing to stop it….Compare that to what the Muslims did to the Jews thruout history. Big difference….Oh and btw, I have no love for either Christian anti-semites or Muslims, but neither am I afraid of them for one reason….

    He continues by saying what permanent violence he’d do to a Christian anti-Semite, or a muslim one, “if they prove problematic and try and bother me.”

    Though obama was inimical to Israel, and thankfully Trump will be a strong supporter, I think you’ll see a backing away from cash payments to Israel and other Middle Eastern nations. We don’t need to buy our friends. Good relations between Israel and the U.S. are mutually beneficial. But those good relations should not include “misery likes company” accommodation by Jewish organizations, including Synagogues, to circumvent laws on refugees and immigration, and it should not include religious organizations (Christian or Jewish) pumping muslims into the U.S.

    Folks, Pam Geller is right; though muslims can be decent people in small numbers; as their numbers increase, so do acts of terror, rape, violence, and more. They are, as Trump quoted the story, the scorpion that stings the frog trying to help it. It stung the frog because that is what comes natural. People that engage in suicide bombings are not worried about laws, and we are a nation of laws. We cannot cope with races, ethnicities, etc., that will not follow our laws, and to make matters worse, they want the right to enforce “their laws” in our country.

    Genital mutilation, burkas and hajibs, rapes, honor killings, these are not people mindful and respectful to others, these are methods of control.

    The world is so hate filled that we can no longer tell right from wrong. Anti-Semitism exists, no question, but apparently some Jews are taught to hate Christians, muslims taught to hate Jews and Christians, democrats hate Republicans, Liberals hate Conservatives, homosexuals hate Christians, and on and on. Someone needs to put on the brakes, we need common ground, we cannot survive in a melting pot country as individual groups constantly taking offense.

    As a little comic relief, this is what we are up against, Video Link: The Three Stooges starring Pelosi, Waters, and Pocahontas Warren.
