George Soros Isn't Jewish
These days, Rudy Giuliani often says things he probably shouldn't. This wasn't one of them.
"Don’t tell me I’m anti-Semitic if I oppose him," Giuliani said. "Soros is hardly a Jew. I’m more of a Jew than Soros is. I probably know more about — he doesn’t go to church, he doesn’t go to religion — synagogue. He doesn’t belong to a synagogue, he doesn’t support Israel, he’s an enemy of Israel. He’s elected eight anarchist DAs in the United States. He’s a horrible human being."
The media is in an uproar. The ADL and the AJC have already condemned Giuliani.
"No, Mayor, You're not 'more of a Jew than Soros.' You're entitled to your views, and to denouncing his. But it's offensive to deny anyone's faith, and worse to endorse classically antisemitic conspiracy theories," the AJC tweeted.
What's their basis for believing that Soros has a faith? Let alone that it's in Judaism?
Guliani's right. There's zero evidence that Soros has any kind of Jewish faith. There's plenty of evidence, even without going into his Nazi collaboration days, his complete lack of remorse afterward, or his relentless hostility toward the Jewish State, of his hostility to Jews.
Forget all that stuff.
Where's the ADL or AJC;s condemnation of Soros for stuff like this?
He was booed when he undermined the presentation of an award to a Holocaust survivor by comparing Israeli Jews to Nazis. Elie Wiesel had declared in disgust, “I heard what happened. If I’d been there—and you can quote me—I would have walked out.”
That same year, Soros blamed the Israeli government for a “resurgence of anti-Semitism in Europe”.
Soros grew up in a “Jewish, anti-Semitic home”. He called his mother a “typical Jewish anti-Semite” who hated his first wife because she was “too Jewish”.
And his own anti-Semitic allegations that “attitudes toward the Jewish community are influenced by the pro-Israel lobby’s success in suppressing divergent views.”
There's zero evidence that Soros is Jewish in any sense other than the one in which Elizabeth Warren might be a Cherokee descendant in some fractional percentile. Jews are not just a genetic legacy. They're also a communal and religious one.
George Soros, like Karl Marx, was the product of two parents who loathed their Jewish ancestry and embraced hatred of Jews. Soros was nurtured on this same vileness and has spent much of his fortune putting it into play.
He's not Jewish. He has a new faith. It calls for the destruction of Jews.
