Here is just one of many reactions to President Trump’s speech at the IAC National Summit last night:
He so perfectly exposes how the pro-Israel industry is rooted in commodifiying, tokenizing and instrumentalizing Jews and how the JudeoChrsitian Zionist ethos is essentially antiSemitic https://t.co/LOP0YRbFfW

Let’s be clear: the only people who are upset over a President, or anyone, saying that people should love Israel more are people who hate Israel. Not Israeli policies, not Israeli leaders, but Israel. And that includes too many Jews, who then fall over themselves saying that such statements – that some Jews need to love Israel more – are antisemitic!
Here’s the entire speech.
The audience at the IAC did not think that Trump’s speech was antisemitic. Even when he made jokes about how many of them are realtors:”You are brutal killers. Not nice people at all.” The audience recognized it as a joke from someone who loves them; the pundits are screaming “antisemite!”
Trump, speaking to the Israeli American Council: “You’re not nice people at all, but you have to vote for me. You have no choice. You’re not going to vote for Pocahontas, I can tell you that. You’re not going to vote for the wealth tax!” pic.twitter.com/IXoaVUw6MU
