Few Israeli governments make Israelis living abroad more embarrassed than those of Benjamin Netanyahu. Only concerned with appealing to his constituency, at home, and in America, both the premier and his representatives tend to fall flat outside their target audiences.
Attacking the Germany’s foreign minister, on Thursday, for deriving universal political lessons from the example of Anne Frank, government spokesman Emmanuel Nahshon sent the Jewish Twittersphere ablaze with a typically revisionist, Jabotinsky-inspired take on the Holocaust victim.
Anne Frank’s diary is NOT a warning about wishy washy pseudo universal values ! Anne Frank’s legacy is a warning against the hatred and persecution of JEWS. The attempt to “universalize the lessons of the Shoah” is nothing less than a dishonest rewriting of history . https://t.co/VXBEUtTDjt
