Jewish Lobby slams Biden for saying ‘Shylock’

Rehmat's World

IMGP1993[1]US vice-president Joseph (Joe) Robinette Biden Jr., a staunch ally of the Zionist entity has come under ‘Zionist knife’ for using the term “Shylock” while addressing a group of US soldiers deployed in Iraq who face financial issues.
Several Jewish groups lead by Abraham Foxman (ADL) have condemned Biden for using the “offensive characterization”, especially coming from a “friend of Jews and Israel”.
“Shylock represents the medieval stereotype about Jews and remains an offensive characterization to this day. The Vice President should have been more careful,” Foxman said.
“When someone as friendly to the Jewish community and open and tolerant an individual as is Vice President Joe Biden, uses the term ‘Shylocked’ to describe unscrupulous moneylenders dealing with service men and women, we see once again how deeply embedded this stereotype about Jews is in society,” Foxman said.
Joe Biden has apologized to the Jewish community and especially to his “long-term adviser” Abraham Foxman for being such a “jerk” to use Shakespeare’s anti-Jew slur.
Joe Biden has this bad habit of showing his Christian hatred of Jews under the guise of lauding Jewish achievements. On May 21, 2013, Biden told a gathering of Jewish leaders: “Jewish heritage has shaped who we are – all of us – as much or more than any other factor in the last 223 years. And that’s a fact. The truth is that Jewish heritage, Jewish culture, Jewish values are such an essential part of who we are that it’s fair to say that Jewish heritage isAmerican heritage.”
Shylock, a villain in William Shakespeare’s ‘The Merchant of Venice,’ is a ruthless Jewish moneylender who calls for a “pound of flesh” from the merchant who defaults on a loan.
In 2012, Heinz-Christian Strache (Jewish) leader of Austria’s Freedom Party was condemned by the organized Jewry for posting a cartoon on his Facebook page depicting a banker with a hooked nose and a Star of Zion cufflinks. He is being fed delicacies by a man who represented the government. The third figure is emaciated and poorly dressed with nothing more than a bone on his plate. He represented the 99% people. See the cartoon here.
Werner Sombart (died 1941), German sociologist and author in 1911 book, ‘The Jews & Modern Capitalism’, claimed that Jewish elites were the dominantbeneficiary of Capitalism. No wonder, Jewish lobby group (ADL) has also equated criticism of The Wall Street and the Reserve Bank with anti-Semitism.
The Merchant of Venice is often accused of being anti-Semitic. It was removed from the high school curriculums of Buffalo and Manchester, New York in 1931. A group of Jewish parents in Brooklyn, New York, filed a lawsuit in 1949 claiming that assigning the play in a senior high school literature class “violated the rights of their children to receive an education free of religious bias.”
The Ontario Ministry of Education was tasked with ruling whether or not the play was indeed anti-Semitic when it was banned from the ninth-grade classrooms in Kitchener-Waterloo, Ontario in 1986. It was also banned from classrooms in Midland, Michigan in 1980.
For readers’ information, William Shakespeare was Jewish behind a ‘Christian curtain’, claimed David Verveer in Israeli newspaper YNet, September 29, 2006 William’s grandfather’s real name was Jaco (Jacob) Spiro, a Marano Jew (from Muslim Spain) living in London.
In 2012, Joe Biden’s only daughter Ashley Blazer Biden married Dr. Howard David Krein (Jewish). So you see the entire episode has nothing but a Jewish ending.
