'Daily Stormer' dedicates banner to Netanyahu's son

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.

    1. Ben

      Thank you for directing us to your article, “Israel’s War Against George Soros.”

      “Mr. Orban has personally accused Mr. Soros’s operations of “trying secretly and with foreign money to influence Hungarian politics” — a statement that appears to toy with an anti-Semitic trope about Jewish influence and yet strangely echoes the Israeli foreign ministry’s condemnation of Mr. Soros. It takes some gall on the part of Mr. Netanyahu to choose this moment to kick Mr. Soros while he’s down — not only because Mr. Soros is, once again, a victim of anti-Semitism in the heart of Europe, but also because he is being vilified in Hungary for trying to combat the same racist, anti-minority sentiments that led to the Holocaust.”

      I will think about this every time I see an Israeli tell me that human rights organizations in the occupied territories are “trying secretly and with foreign money to influence Israeli politics” and every time I see an Israeli tell me that Breaking the Silence and B’Tselem and +972 Magazine are “traitors doing it for the money.” And every time I see raw anti-“infiltrator” venom expressed here. And I see all these things here often.

        Well, that is what Mr Soros does. He wants the entire world to operate his Neo-marxist open borders policies. Nothing to do with anti-semitism.
        More Anti-Sorosism.
