“”growing use of anti-Semitic tropes by white supremacists including neo-Nazis and members of radical Islamist groups””

Hmmm - I hope they also added members of the U.S. House of Representatives.

I wonder how many state houses are also infected with this vermin. We never heard about them UNTIL they run for Congress and then they end up in our lap. Aren’t we lucky?

Take a look at the name of the UNHRC’s special rapporteur on freedom of religion or belief.

Nothing on black extremists anti-Semitism, Moslem extremism, esp. from Iran, the rise of the anti-Semitic Left in both American and British politics, and the general hatred of so-called Palestinians esp. those in Hamas for the mere existence of a Jewish state.

Forget the Grey Poupon!
