格伦·扬金, Jewish leader dismiss Dem's 'ridiculous' claim that criticizing Soros is 'antisemitic'

I call it out in my own party and I’m calling it out now,” Luria declared on Twitter. “Evoking George Soros as a shadowy funder is an anti-Semitic conspiracy theory. This is an unacceptable statement from Glenn Youngkin.

在四月份 2019, 华盛顿邮报 published a story explaining how a PAC funded by George Soros impacted two prosecutor races in Northern Virginia. 在八月 2016, Politico published a story detailing “乔治·索罗斯’ quiet overhaul of the U.S. justice system,” by channeling “多于 $ 3 million into seven local district-attorney campaigns in six states over the past year.

YOUNGKIN VOWS TO HOLD LOUDOUN COUNTY OFFICIALS RESPONSIBLE AFTER ALLEGED SEXUAL ASSAULTS

A Soros-launched PAC 捐赠的 $ 625,000 to various statewide races in Virginia in 2019. Soros-funded prosecutor candidates swept the Virginia elections that year. The prosecutor who sought jail time for the father whose daughter was allegedly sexually assaulted by a male student in a dress in a girlsrestroom has ties to both Soros and Terry McAuliffe, the Democrat running against Youngkin. As recently as June, Soros spent $ 200,000 on another prosecutor’s race in Virginia.

Soros seems to have also helped Luria herself. According to FEC data, Soros contributed $ 5,000 to PAC TO THE FUTURE in December 2019, which turned around and 给了 $ 10,000 to the Elaine Luria campaign in 2020.

Rabbi Yaakov Menken, managing director of the Coalition for Jewish Values, which represents some 1,500 Orthodox Jewish rabbis, condemned Luria’s suggestion that calling out Soros’s activism constitutes an anti-Semitic conspiracy theory.

It is ridiculous to say that because Soros is a wealthy Jew, if you criticize him, you’re going after Jewish money,” Menken told Fox News. “Anti-Semitism is too real and too dangerous to use as a partisan cudgel.

It’s not merely true that Soros has tried to turn education and policing to suit his partisan vision,” Menken continued. “He also funds groups that condemn Israel for placing barriers before suicide bombers, promote free entry for Hamas terrorists into Israel, and blame Israel for Arab terrorism.He specifically named the Arab American Institute, which condemned Israeli barriers, 和 Ilam, a network which Soros funds and which, according to Menken, blames Israel for Arab terrorism.

索罗斯’ “work clearly endangers Jewish and American lives,” Menken said. “Opposing him isn’t anti-Semitic, it’s a Mitzvah,” a command and a commendable act.
