B’nai B’rith International — one of the most powerful Jewish supremacist, pro-Zionist groups in the world — has expressed disingenuous “outrage” after some public figures openly questioned the sincerity of the help provided by the Israeli Defense Force rescue squads during the disaster in Surfside, Florida:
Anti-Israel activists took to social media to accuse the Israel Defense Forces of exploiting the collapse of the Champlain Towers South in Surfside, Fla.
Rafael Shimunov, a political activist from Queens, NY, questioned the motives of involvement by the Israeli military. He tweeted: “I really don’t understand the IDF’s involvement in rescue attempts of people tragically crushed under buildings in Miami. Their expertise is crushing buildings with people in them, not rescuing them.”
He added: “As if we don’t have any expertise or technology here in the US. Using these tragic deaths for pro-Israel propaganda is just quite something. These forces are literally stepping over buildings they crushed with children in them to go to Miami and do a PR stunt.”
A rescue delegation from the IDF’s Home Front Command was sent to Surfside to assist in the search and recovery mission. The delegation arrived within 72 hours of the building’s collapse, helping first responders using 3D mapping and conducting a humanitarian effort to support the families of the missing.
B’nai B’rith International was “outraged and disgusted” by the tweet and retweet from Shimunov and Sarsour.
“This horrific statement comes as families are mourning the loss of loved ones and hoping for miracles in the tragic building collapse that still has 113 missing in the rubble. The IDF has worked tirelessly, as Lt. Col. Oz Gino told Hamodia, ‘on the pile as if everybody is alive,’” wrote B’nai B’rith International president Charles O. Kaufman and CEO Daniel S. Mariaschin.
“The tweet is not only deeply insensitive but anti-Zionist and anti-Semitic,” they continued. “A people that, sadly, has had to deal with bombs from Palestinian terrorists is now told it has the temerity to help people in Florida based on their own tragic experience.”
It would be understandable if the IDF dispatched help to a disaster in a Third World country that lacks the expertise, equipment, and logistics to deal with such a situation.
But the U.S.A. is the most technologically-advanced country in the world with highly trained disaster teams that are perfectly capable of dealing with such the situation in Surfside — without the help of the IDF.
So if the U.S. didn’t need the IDF’s help, why were they sent? And who made the decision to send them? And who in the U.S. government made the decision to allow them to participate in the rescue operation — and why?
That the governor of Florida and presidential hopeful — Ron DeSantis — is an unapologetic Zionist who has made “antisemitism” and criticism of Israel illegal in Florida might explain how quickly the IDF’s offer of “help” was greenlighted.
It’s no secret that the IDF’s recent slaughter in Gaza has been an unmitigated public relations disaster for Israel — and Jews worldwide — after they wantonly murdered dozens of Palestinian women and children — and then cynically claimed that they were “defending” themselves against “terrorists.”
The IDF has a full-time army of keyboard warriors whose job it is to monitor the entire internet — and especially major social media outlets — to cast Israel in the most positive light — and even make them look “cool.”
It should be no surprise that the cyncial concept of “public relations” was invented by a Jew — Edward Bernays — Sigmund Freud’s nephew — who ruthlessly exploited the ignorance and malleability of the public to “turn mold into gold” — to sell the most unpalatable ideas and unsympathetic people to the unwashed masses.
If Israel truly wants to clean up its public image, they need to stop bombing the Palestinians into the Stone Age and stealing their land — and then pathetically try to convince the world they are doing it in “self-defense” — no one except their rabid, blind partisans is buying it.
Israel will never convince the world that they are “defending themselves” as they constantly annex more and more Palestinian territory — confirming the truth of the Polish proverb, “The Jew cries out as he strikes you.”
Israel is not popular among secular Jews worldwide — so Jews themselves need to pressure Israel into behaving differently — they need to renounce Israel until they change — because Israel’s ruthless and cynical behavior puts Jews everywhere at risk of reprisals — as we’ve seen recently.
They can continue their cynical gaslighting by calling everyone who criticizes them an “antisemite” — or they can change their behavior — it’s really not more complicated than that.
But creating unnecessary complications is a Jewish specialty — made popular by Rube Goldberg.
And the superfluous presence of the IDF in Surfside is just another needless complication of a simple rescue operation.
