Israel’s Netanyahu collaborating with far-right leader for a ‘consensus view’ of the Holocaust: report

Published

on

Even as Jews in Europe and America have experienced a shocking rise in anti-Semitism in the Trump era, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu is allying himself with world leaders on the far right, reports the Daily Beast.

Last week, the prime minister agreed to a “consensus narrative” about the Holocaust with Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orbán for a Holocaust Museum set to open in Hungary. The museum, called House of Fates, has been criticized for whitewashing Hungary’s role in the genocide perpetuated against the European Jews.

Hungarian Jewish groups oppose the rewriting of history that appears planned in the new Museum.

“If Hungary adopts a concept and alternative content for the fateful home, they can present it to relevant bodies in Hungary and around the world, including International Holocaust Remembrance Association where Yad Vashem is active in the framework of the Israeli delegation to the organization,” the Yad Vashem institute said.

A historian associated with the group denounced the House of Fate in an op-ed published by the Times of Israel.

“Visitors to the House of Fates are to be shown and taught that, except for a tiny, criminal and fanatic minority, the citizens of Hungary were essentially blameless for what was inflicted upon their Jewish neighbors,” he noted. “To this patently misleading distortion, the concept’s planners have added a statistically disproportional over-emphasis on rescue attempts on behalf of Jews, by Hungarians. Thus, it is implied, that Hungary was actually a nation of rescuers. This is a grave falsification of history.”

As the Daily Beast reports, Netanyahu also met with Matteo Salvini, Italy’s new, nationalist interior minister, hailing him as a “great friend of Israel,” reported Ha’aretz.

Salvino returned the favor Tuesday, slammed the EU for their criticism of Israeli human rights abuses. “Whoever wants peace needs to support Israel,” he said at a press conference.

Nancy Pelosi clap

President Donald Trump's White House is committing obstruction of justice by claiming Hope Hicks has "immunity" from testifying before Congress about her time in the administration and even transition.

Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi was asked about the administration's contention by CNN congressional reporter Manu Raju.

Pelosi replied that it was, "obstruction of justice."

The answer could be important as Congressional precedence says that obstruction of justice is a high crime or misdemeanor worthy of impeachment.

Ocasio-Cortez dunks on Liz Cheney again for using Nazi language to defend Trump: ‘Enjoy defending concentration camps’

Published

on

Dick Cheney's daughter continued to receive ferocious backlash after she falsely claimed that Donald Trump's tent cities are not "concentration camps."

Rep. Liz Cheney (R-WY) demanded Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) learn history -- while revealing she knew little -- during a Twitter outburst.

“The U.S. is running concentration camps on our southern border and that is exactly what they are. … ‘Never Again’ means something ... we need to do something about it," Ocasio-Cortez noted.

Right-wing radio show ratings tank as host undermines Trump’s ‘promises made, promises kept’ re-election slogan

Published

on

The fact Donald Trump's base sticks with him no matter what he does is negatively impacting a conservative radio host attempting to hold the president accountable for his campaign promises.

Michael Alan Weiner, who goes by the stage name Michael Savage, hosts the "Savage Nation" radio show.

The host once praised Trump as the "Winston Churchill of our time" has been criticizing the president recently, The New York Times reported Tuesday.

"Now Mr. Savage is an outlier once again, dismayed more each day as the budget deficit continues to swell, thousands of new migrants are apprehended at the border, and the wall Mr. Trump promised to erect and make Mexico pay for remains unbuilt," The Times explained.
