Trump and Netanyuhu, two of a kind

Israel's newspaper, Haaretz, continually puts the American press to shame with excellent articles that go right to the heart of issues the mainstream media in the United States will not touch. Here is a perfect example, Protesting Bigots and Demagogues at AIPAC? Don't Stop at Trump, Call Out Netanyahu Too by Roy Isacowitz.

Some excerpts:

"AIPAC, that bastion of Jewish values...has given repeated and resounding standing ovations, year after year, to Benjamin Netanyahu and other Israeli demagogues and racists, who not only talk the talk – as Trump has done so far – but walk the walk, as well.

Israel has already built the wall that Trump only talks about. It has blighted the lives of millions of Muslims, as Trump says he would like to do. Its behavior has been far more bellicose than anything Trump has exhibited so far and its racism is not only more extreme, but a lot more deadly.

The supporters of Israeli Trumpism have assassinated a prime minister, gunned down worshippers in a mosque, burned a Palestinian baby to cinders in its bed and committed thousands of other racist atrocities. But when the Israeli Trump-in-chief arrives in Washington, he is feted by AIPAC as the true representative of Jewish values. The anti-Trump."
