He hired and appointed persons of color to his administration; he kept his word to Israel and moved the U.S. Embassy to Jerusalem (like every one of his predecessors dating back to Bill Clinton promised to do but didn't); his administration struck historic peace deals between Israel and its Arab neighbors; even his daughter, Ivanka, is Jewish.
No, Donald Trump is no anti-Semite or bigot, but boy, many of his left-wing detractors sure are, as the tech giant Google just proved again.
The company recently was forced to dismiss its diversity chief over a 2007 blog post demonstrating massive anti-Semitism, Israel365 News reports:
Kamau Bobb “will no longer be part of our diversity team going forward,” tech giant Google announced Wednesday, after the surfacing of an antisemitic blog post its Global Lead for Diversity, Strategy and Research wrote in 2007. ...
In the 2007 post, first reported on by the Washington Free Beacon, Bobb, then a research associate at Georgia Tech, shared his views on how Jews people should view the conflict in the Middle East.
“We unequivocally condemn the past writings by a member of our diversity team that are causing deep offense and pain to members of our Jewish community and our LGBTQ+ community. These writings are unquestionably hurtful. The author acknowledges this and has apologized. He will no longer be part of our diversity team going forward and will focus on his STEM [Science Technology Engineering Math] work," Google said in a statement. "This has come at a time where we’ve seen an alarming increase in antisemitic attacks. Antisemitism is a vile prejudice that has given rise to unfathomable acts. It has no place in society and we stand with our Jewish community in condemning it."
And yet...the company hired Bobb without checking his background? Come on.
In 2007, Bobb claimed that Jews have an “insatiable appetite for war” and an “insensitivity to the suffering [of] others" -- failing to mention, of course, that Israel is constantly under attack and did not start any of the three major wars it has fought with its neighbors since coming into existence in 1947.
He went on to rip the Israeli government, which, at the time, was led by Prime Minister Ehud Olmert, adding that Jews everywhere should be “tormented” by Israel’s actions.
“If I were a Jew today, my sensibilities would be tormented. I would find it increasingly difficult to reconcile the long cycles of oppression that Jewish people have endured and the insatiable appetite for vengeful violence that Israel, my homeland, has now acquired,” he wrote.
“If I were a Jew I would be concerned about my insatiable appetite for war and killing in defense of myself,” he wrote. “Self-defense is undoubtedly an instinct, but I would be afraid of my increasing insensitivity to the suffering [of] others.”
He went on to make highly disturbing comments about the Holocaust -- because of course.
He said that as a Jew, his reflections on "Kristallnacht," also known as the “Night of Broken Glass” in Nazi Germany, which preceded the Holocaust, “would lead me to feel that these are precisely the human sentiments that I as Jew would understand; that I ought to understand and feel compelled to help alleviate.”
“It cannot be that the sum total of a history of suffering and slaughter places such a premium on my identity that I would be willing to damn others in defense of it,” Bobb wrote.
As a Jew, he continued, “I wouldn’t understand the notion of collective punishment, cutting off gas, electricity, and water from residents in Gaza because they are attacking Israel who is fighting against them. It would be unconscionable to me to watch Israeli tanks donning the Star of David rumbling through Ramallah, destroying buildings and breaking the glass.”
It's incredibly ironic that the company which perfected the search engine couldn't be bothered to look up its 'diversity' choice and learn more about him before putting him on the payroll.
