Israeli Politicians Reject Trump Claim Of Two Sides To Virginia Hate


Israeli politicians and others took aim at US President Donald Trump for comments appearing to equate neo-Nazi marchers in Charlottesville, Virginia, with left-wing anti-fascist activists, rejecting his assertion that there were two sides to the story.

“There aren’t two sides,” Yair Lapid, head of the centrist Yesh Atid party, said in a Wednesday statement.

“When neo-Nazis march in Charlottesville and scream slogans against Jews and in support of white supremacy, the condemnation has to be unambiguous. They represent hate and evil. Anyone who believes in the human spirit must stand against them without fear.”

Tzipi Livni, a former justice minister and No. 2 in the opposition Zionist Union faction, also rejected Trump’s assertion.

“When it comes to racism, anti-Semitism and Nazism, there are never two equal sides. There’s good and there’s evil. Period,” she said in a Wednesday statement. Read more at Times Of Israel.







  1. I don’t believe Tzipporah or Yair are our spokespeople. There was a lot going on there, why remove Robert E Lee statue? What was BLM group over aggressive & demonstrating without a permit?

    Hate, evil, murder is wrong. Incitement & aggression is the first step & that must be stopped immediately

  2. So leftist Israeli politicians support antisemites of the leftist variety. A sane move would have been to avoid taking sides in the fight between two enemies of our nation.

  3. What a bunch of stupid idiots. These little leftists are quiet when Susan Rice equivocates Palestinian terrorist who butchers innocent Jewish children in their sleep and Israels right to defend themselves. They agree when the NY Times compares the two. Why the sudden change?

  4. Darkness reigns. Misrepresented headlines set the tone. The facts are facts and noone sais them.
    #1 trump condemned all hate and violence immediately
    #2 antifa is more of a danger at this point the white Supremicist numerically. And their ideology is much more appealing.
    #3 blm is a black Supremicist group so they are equivalent.
    Pathetic. I hope people see the truth. Sad state of affairs.

  5. Great folks. We are supporting the idea that the alt-right has a place in our community it seems by attacking this perceived “alt-left”. The alt-left seems to include anyone who does not like the alt-right which is a conglomerate of hate.

    Seriously, is America undergoing a metamorphosis of human value today? We can think that Hashem has too much to teach us.

    Would anyone really think that Trump who has no rarefied thought on human faith and human relations becomes the greatest of our presidents. This is a divine outcome much the reality daily of a world that did say NEVER AGAIN!!!!!

    We are watching history. Lets still hope we are safe.

    Too much has been happening since the inauguration to consider that we are not alone in this universe.

    Fear G-d. It might be smart.
