The Guardian’s insistence that one or two wealthy Jews are behind Trump’s pro-Israel policies is facile and myopic at best, and, at worst, promotes exactly the kind of antisemitic dog whistles about the ‘injurious’ influence of Jewish power that, when directed at George Soros, their editors and contributors have ardently denounced.
The fact that the Adelson funded group does not fund the Stop the Jew Hatred poster campaign isn’t merely a tiny detail in a larger story. It’s pretty much the entire story. Remarkably, the headline and opening passage in the article have not been amended to reflect the Maccabee group’s denial.

We have reported extensively on Guardian journalist Chris McGreal’s malign obsession with Israel, and his tendency on occasion to evoke antisemitic tropes about Jewish power. This blog has garnered multiple corrections to […]
We’ve previously written about Irish Times columnist Eamonn McCann, a Trotskyist activist and commentator who has employed the “chosen people” canard to suggest that Israeli attacks are arguably inspired by a belief in their […]
Mira Bar Hillel is Property and Planning correspondent for the Evening Standard. And, though she is Jewish, she is also prejudiced against Jews. In fact, Jews scare her quite a bit. Don’t take […]
Walter Russell Mead, in an essay at his blog, cited the following quote: “American Presidents have long been criticized for being too in thrall to the Jewish lobby. The American Jews influence US foreign […]
Explicitly antisemitic commentators often complain that Jewish money distorts U.S. foreign policy in the Middle East, and warn of the broader danger posed by Jewish influence in politics. Such narratives can be found on […]
