Dem Congressman: Jewish Settlers Are Like Termites

16

A Democratic member of the House Armed Services Committee compared Jewish Israeli settlers to termites on Monday while speaking at an event sponsored by an anti-Israel organization that supports boycotts of the Jewish state, Free Beacon reports.

Rep. Hank Johnson (D., Ga.) launched into a tirade against Israel and its policies toward the Palestinians, comparing Jewish people who live in “disputed territories” to “termites” that destroy homes. Johnson also compared Israeli Defense Minister Avigdor Lieberman to Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump, a remark that drew vocal agreement from those in the room.

“There has been a steady [stream], almost like termites can get into a residence and eat before you know that you’ve been eaten up and you fall in on yourself, there has been settlement activity that has marched forward with impunity and at an ever increasing rate to the point where it has become alarming,” Johnson said during an event sponsored by the U.S. Campaign to End the Israeli Occupation, an anti-Israel organization that galvanizes supporters of the Boycott, Divestment, and Sanctions movement, or BDS.

“It has come to the point that occupation, with highways that cut through Palestinian land, with walls that go up, with the inability or the restriction, with the illegality of Palestinians being able to travel on those roads and those roads cutting off Palestinian neighborhoods from each other,” Johnson continued. “And then with the building of walls and the building of check points that restrict movement of Palestinians. We’ve gotten to the point where the thought of a Palestinian homeland gets further and further removed from reality.” Read more at Free Beacon.

  1. Pretty bad. This guy should be discussed and discussed by the DNC to decide that he can not represent the men and women who seek freedom and rights in America.

    I can hope this is a discussion and we do know that hate politics against Israel exist. We are not coy to think that every Democrat is our friend even if we are indeed Democrats. The ignorant want both parties to be their placement.

    Terrible.

  2. From Wikipedia;
    “On October 5, 2014 The Washingtonian published their 15th biennial “Best & Worst of Congress” list. Rep. Hank Johnson was voted “Worst Speaker” and “Most Clueless” by congressional staffers.”

  3. He is leaving out the first 70 years of history. The part where in Hitleresque rhetoric several armies vowed to repeat the atrocities of WW2 and the world stood by. Again in ’67 and ’73. Now because the west has ignored this rhetoric for so long an entire nation has been raised on hate- much like said Senator was taught to hate Jews in the south.

  4. If he would have compared black lives matters to termites his comments would have stirred up a storm yet he can make this racist comment.

  5. Yup, and Jews continue to vote only Democrat. Between this anti-semite who doesn’t even see facts fir what they are and Debbie Wasserman Schultz, we haven’t any real friends in the Democrat party! No wonder Bloomberg is going back to them!

  6. He’s the 2nd black Congress person from Georgia this week to attack Jews & Israel. Last night Michelle Obama was complaining about the white house being built by slaves. The Democrat party gave rise the the BLM movement which has turned it’s “anger” on the Jewish community. The rise of anti semitism in this country can be traced to the Democrat party. One should consider these dangerous trends before he heads into the voting booth.
