Jewish groups intensified criticism on Tuesday of Rudy Giuliani, the former New York mayor turned president’s lawyer and freelancing Ukrainian envoy, after he attacked Jewish financier, philanthropist and Holocaust survivor George Soros for being “hardly a Jew” and failing to attend synagogue.If Greenblatt is hearing dog whistles, then he is the dog.
Giuliani also asserted he was “more of a Jew than Soros” and repeated a claim that the former US ambassador to Ukraine, Marie Yovanovitch, who testified in Donald Trump’s impeachment inquiry, was controlled by the financier.
The Anti-Defamation League CEO, Jonathan Greenblatt, furiously rebuked Giuliani, who is of Italian descent and was raised Roman Catholic, describing his comments as “baffling and offensive” and a “dog whistle to hardcore antisemites and white supremacists who believe this garbage”.
The paper calls Soros a Jew because of his Jewish nationality and identity beliefs, not because he follows synagogue teachings.
I am not sure what the thread is that connects the Trump impeachment players. Not all of them are Jewish. They certainly don't attend the same synagogue. Maybe none of them attend synagogue, as orthodox Jews seem to like Trump.
Canadian Jew Dan Rosenberg writes for the Canadian Jewish News:
The one tradition that really irks many of us is the dubious claim that there’s a “War on Christmas,” an idea that is both anti-Semitic and xenophobic.He then goes on to argue that people argue that people should say "Happy Holidays" instead of Merry Christmas". In other words, he is a Jew participating in the war on Christmas.
So I’d like to add the War on Christmas to the list of other bigoted buzzwords that shouldn’t be applied to Jews, or anyone else. Then, if people continue to use them, there will be little doubt of their intentions. Here’s a primer:
“New York lawyers (and bankers)”: those are Jews; “Hollywood Culture”: that means Jewish; “secularists” and “internationalists” who are behind conspiracies like the War on Christmas: those are Jews, too. ...
In modern times, Fox News has been airing segments such as Bill O’Reilly’s 2016 “Naughty or Nice” list, which praised businesses that use “Merry Christmas” and condemned others that say “Happy Holidays.”
Why is the idea that some people don’t celebrate Christmas offensive to some? If we look at the white supremacist rally [in] Charlottesville, Va., or the perpetrators of the massacres at the Tree of Life Synagogue in Pittsburgh, the mosques in Christchurch, New Zealand, or the Walmart in El Paso, Texas, we can see that they were all motivated by a fear of immigrants and the anti-Semitic “Great Replacement” theory, which claims that there’s a plot to make whites into a minority.So some White people don't want Jews to systematically replace Whites with non-white immigrants, so those White people want to say Merry Christmas, and hence Christmas cheers are anti-Semitic?
He is obviously in favor of the Great Replacement. This is some really twisted Jewish thinking. It is so stupid that I don't know how to respond to it. Either he is dishonest, or he suffers from some weird Jewish mental illness.
This Canadian Jew is effectively saying that he and other Jews want to silence and exterminate White Christians, and that anyone who wants to say Merry Christmas is anti-Semitic.
Kevin MacDonald explains that the Jewish war on Christmas is very well documented.
