In a segment debating Donald Trump’s call to ban Muslims from the US, CNN anchor Ashleigh Banfield suggested that the same logic could be applied to Jews, since there was a history of terrorism committed by Jews in the US.
“From a period of 1980 to 1985 there were a reported 18 terror attacks committed in the United States by Jews, 15 of them committed by the Jewish Defense League,” Banfield said. ‘The head of the Jewish Defense league was in jail awaiting trial…accused of trying to bomb a mosque in Culver City, trying to bomb [US Congressman] Darrel Issa’s office, an Arab-American.”
“Are you really saying to me that there’s an international Jewish conspiracy to take over the world?” Jeffrey Lord asked in response. “There are no Jews coming to [the US] to destroy America.”
Living up to her name, BANfield is posing a rhetorical question. Nevertheless, to mention Jews in the same breath as Radical Islamist terrorists is stretching the analogy a bit too far. It seems no-one in the left-liberal dominated media can mention terrorists without bring Jews into the equation somewhere along the line. The only word of advice I can give to anyone harbouring a desire to ban and banish all Jews from the US is…just look at Spain. It once rid itself of all its Jews, and is now in more of a mess than a month-old paella. So much so, they’ve now issued an edict inviting all Jews of Sephardi ancestry to return ‘home’.
