You would think stopping illegal West Bank settlements is like the reckless habitat destruction of an endangered species.
An Israeli parliamentarian accuses the Obama administration of 'anti-Semitism' ahead of a planned speech addressing the Muslim world.As for the "stunted growth" of the Palestinians, well that's totally different, I suppose. You know, because they aren't a rare endangered species. They're just goyim.
Knesset (parliament) member Yaakov Katz, head of the National Union party, said Wednesday that US President Barack Obama's repeated calls for halting the expansion of Jewish settlements in the West Bank is "nothing less than anti-Semitism," Israel's Arutz Sheva reported.
He also accused the White House of following the path of his predecessors in stunting the growth of the population of Jewish people in the West Bank.
Katz says calling on Tel Aviv to freeze settlement activities means denying the Jewish people the right to give birth.
"If someone says you can't add a room to a house, or build a kindergarten or a grocery or anything else, it means that 650,000 Jews in Jerusalem and elsewhere cannot grow, cannot give birth," Katz told Israel's national radio.
"I would just like to add that for the Obama Administration, there is no difference between Jerusalem and the rest of Judea and Samaria (the West Bank). In the Jerusalem neighborhoods, we have close to 300,000 Jews and we have another 350,000 Jews in Judea and Samaria," he added. "For the Americans, all 650,000 are the same; they are all to be boycotted, discriminated against and told to stop building and stop growing. There is no difference for them."
The Israeli parliamentarian also called on Christian and Jewish supporters of Israel to "get tough" with the Obama White House and not to accept his 'discriminating policies' against the Jewish people.
