David Duke Exploits Gaza Situation With New Video

For­mer Klan leader and anti-Semite David Duke, pre­sent­ing him­self as a “peace activist” and an unbi­ased “his­to­rian” has cre­ated a new exploitive video on the war in Gaza. Duke uses the sit­u­a­tion in Gaza to pro­mote his own vir­u­lent brand of anti-Semitism and attempt to win sympathizers.david-duke-gaza-video

In the video titled, “Israeli Geno­cide in Gaza,” Duke accuses Israel of “bar­baric” mass mur­der and geno­cide. He also alleges that the media and politi­cians are con­trolled by Zion­ists who pur­posely mis­lead the public.

Iron­i­cally, Duke claims to be a his­to­rian “who likes to expose hypocrisy, decep­tion and manip­u­la­tion.” Yet he uses all three to paint Jews as mur­der­ers, liars and thieves. Duke also rep­re­sents him­self as a cham­pion of the Pales­tini­ans despite hav­ing been an active white suprema­cist for decades.

The real objec­tive of Duke’s video, which has received almost 32,000 views on YouTube, is to demo­nize Jews and to pro­mote the idea that Jews con­trol Amer­ica. At the end of the video, Duke exclaims, “Free Pales­tine and free Amer­ica and free the world from Zion­ist lies and tyranny.”

In addi­tion to the video on the sit­u­a­tion in Gaza, Duke has been try­ing to raise money to pub­lish “The Illus­trated Pro­to­cols of Zion,” a ver­sion of the noto­ri­ous anti-Semitic work that accuses Jews of a world­wide plot to con­trol the world.

Hypocrisy of ‘Condemn Israel’ Campaign

by Abra­ham H. Fox­man
National Direc­tor of the Anti-Defamation League

When Israel is forced to defend its cit­i­zens from Pales­tin­ian ter­ror­ism orig­i­nat­ing from Gaza, we’ve come to expect out­rage around the world. Crit­ics are quick to con­demn Israel’s mil­i­tary actions — some with such heavy-handed charges as “war crimes,” “atroc­i­ties” and even “geno­cide,” while remain­ing silent about the ter­ror­ists who started the conflict.

At anti-Israel protests around the world, vio­lent anti-Semitism is on full dis­play, thinly veiled as crit­i­cism of Israel. Demon­stra­tors in Turkey have attacked Israeli embassies. In Ger­many, France, Italy and Spain and other Euro­pean coun­tries, the protests have led to anti-Semitic attacks on Jew­ish peo­ple, com­mu­nity cen­ters and synagogues.

New Black Panthers Exploit Gaza Conflict To Promote Anti-Semitism

As inci­dents of anti-Semitism in the U.S. increase in response to Israel’s mil­i­tary oper­a­tions to stop Hamas rocket fire from Gaza, the New Black Pan­ther Party, the largest orga­nized anti-Semitic and racist Black mil­i­tant group in Amer­ica, has begun to use the con­flict to pro­mote its bigotry.

On the July 28 episode of the NBPP’s online radio pro­gram, Black Power Radio, NBPP National Chair­man Hashim Nzinga por­trayed Israel as satanic, stat­ing, “These crack­ers over in Israel do a cease­fire with the brother and sis­ter Pales­tini­ans, and then they start bomb­ing their chil­dren in the next 30 min­utes.” He con­tin­ued, “If you’re of a higher edu­ca­tion and a higher learn­ing, under­stand the order of the devil. The devil is gonna deceive you.”

On the July 21 episode, NBPP Chief of Staff Chawn Kweli sim­i­larly demo­nized Israelis, call­ing them “so-called Jews in Israel in what’s really Palestine…some player haters, some Zion­ists, some so-called Jews who the Book of Revelations…calls the Syn­a­gogue of Satan.”

Kweli praised the tac­tics of Hamas, stat­ing that the Black com­mu­nity in the U.S. “can learn to fight for [its] land” from the Pales­tini­ans. “They don’t have all them tanks…they don’t have that, but they got heart. They got will. They got guerilla tactics.”

In Nzinga’s July 14 crit­i­cism of Israel, he invoked the anti-Semitic con­spir­acy the­ory that Jews car­ried out the 9/11 attacks. Accord­ing to Nzinga, “Since George Bush and the Jews exploded Amer­i­can peo­ple with 9/11 and put fear in America…it’s not out of sync that them Jews would attack the Pales­tini­ans dur­ing Ramadan and start a war dur­ing the holy days.”
