ADL Slams Bibi's Son for Antisemitic Post


The Anti-Defamation League has slammed Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu's son Yair for posting an antisemitic meme to Facebook, the Times of Israel reported.

The meme shows George Soros, a reptilian creature, and a stereotypical depiction of a hook-nosed Jew controlling several figures from the Israeli opposition.

It was later revealed that the image was an adaptation of an image that originated on antisemitic websites.

'The cartoon that Yair Netanyahu posted contains blatantly anti-Semitic elements," said the ADL tweeted. "The dangers inherent in anti-Semitic discourse should not be taken lightly."

The image has been celebrated by neo-Nazis on social media, with the website Daily Stormer declaring, "Netanyahu’s Son Posts Awesome Meme Blaming the Jews for Bringing Down His Jew Father." It then called Yair Netanyahu "a total bro" and said, "Next he’s going [sic] call for gassings."

Former KKK member David Duke tweeted, "Welcome to the club, Yair – absolutely amazing, wow, just wow."
