Larry Klayman knows who to blame for the Pittsburgh synagogue massacre, and it is the Jews. Well, certain Jews.
Klayman began his Oct. 30 WorldNetDaily column by outlining his convoluted religious views: "Let me get one thing clear up front. I am a proud Jew and Zionist! Jesus spoke to me on three occasions when I was very down and out and going through a very difficult period in my life, so I also became a proud Christian. That’s why I call myself a Jewish Christian." Messianic Jews are mostly seen as a tool for evangelical Christians to lure Jews by claiming they can cling to their Jewish heritage while also embracing Jesus, even though Judaism as a whole does not recognize Jesus as the son of God.
He then throws in the tired right-wing lie about George Soros:
It is not in dispute that to save their own skin, under the “tutelage” of his father, “Little Leftist George” collaborated with the Nazis during World War II to confiscate the property of fellow Jews headed for Hitler’s gas chambers and ovens. Since then Soros has not done anything discernible to even apologize for this heinous act. I, for one, would have rather gone to my own death in a Nazi concentration camp than sell out my fellow Jews.
Actually, it is so in dispute that it is a documented lie to make that claim about Soros. Apparently Klayman is rooting for one more Jew to have died in the Holocaust.
But on to the big smear. Klayman went on to huff that for "non-leftist Jews" like himself -- "the ones who truly are in sync with the Jewish masses here and in Israel – President Trump has proven in just two short years in office to be the biggest friend of Jewry there ever was in the White House," adding without proof that former President Obama was "truly anti-Semitic." And then he dropped this bomb:
And here is the rub. Evil neo-Nazis like the murderer of 11 Jews at the Pittsburgh synagogue, in racist rants on social media, in effect pointed to leftist Jews as furthering the immigration of Muslims into the country. This domestic terrorist in effect justified this unjustifiable heinous massacre as a reaction to the Jewish Left aiding and abetting the influx of Muslims into the United States.
While most Jews, including yours truly, are not in favor of banning all Muslims from our shores, it is ironic that many in the Jewish Left will vilify President Trump as the cause of the Pittsburgh tragedy, but not look into the mirror and recognize that their reflexively anti-Trump actions may have provoked this neo-Nazi maniac to kill 11 of our fellow Jews.
Here’s the bottom line: The Jewish Left, particularly in this country, is not representative of the overwhelming majority of Jews here, in Israel and worldwide. But regrettably, they are giving professed sick cause to lunatics like the Pittsburgh shooter to work their evil.
Klayman concluded by delcaring that "to combat the Jewish Left, I am today forming Freedom Watch’s 'Coalition of the Jewish Right,' which I urge all like-minded Jews and fellow Christians to join to combat the Jewish Left."
