What the hell is going on?
The Daily Stormer, an American white supremacist and neo-Nazi website dedicated its homepage banner on Tuesday to Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s son Yair.
The banner shows a photo of a joint-smoking Yair Netanyahu photoshopped on top of the West Bank separation wall, along with a sniper rifle pointed directly at a racist caricature of a Jewish man.
The banner was posted just days after the prime minister’s son published an anti-Semitic cartoon on his personal Facebook page Saturday, which he took down a day later following widespread criticism.
The cartoon showed Manny Naftali, the former superintendent of the Prime Minister’s Residence, who is at the forefront of the struggle to put pressure on the police to indict Netanyahu for corruption, being baited by Israeli politico Eldad Yaniv, who is seen baited by former Prime Minister Ehud Barak. Barak is seen tempted by the money of the Illuminati, who according to the cartoon are being tempted by a Reptilian — a common anti-Semitic codeword for Jews. The Reptilian, for his part, is portrayed as controlling the world in the service of the Grand Jew: George Soros.
In the America-Israel 2017 landscape, the former head of the Ku Klux Klan, David Duke, is tweeting his support for Netanyahu’s son and the most prominent neo-Nazi website is making him their poster boy.
Here is some context I wrote recently on why the Israeli Prime Minister is dabbling in anti-Semitism.
