Former Mayor of New York City Rudy Giuliani sat down for an interview with Newsmax on Monday where he said that the current rash of anti-Semitic attacks happening across the country has him concerned, noting that it is reminiscent of Germany back in the 1930s.
“This is a very dangerous thing we’re watching,” Giuliani said on Monday to show host Greg Kelly .
“That’s a very big sign of how bad things are and how fast we’re moving toward the wrong kind of government. I mean, a really fundamental change in our way of life,” he added.
Giuliani was lamenting the incidents coast to coast and around the world were inspired by the Hamas attacks on Israel after former President Donald Trump left office with peace deals being signed in the Middle East.
“I watched a film of this stuff, and the videos: I think we’re in Germany, back in the ’30s,” Giuliani told Kelly during the interview, adding, “This should not happen in America.”
Giuliani noted anti-Semitic sentiment in America is not just morally bankrupt, but it is also misdirected at American Jews who might not even support the state of Israel’s policies.
“This can’t happen in America,” Giuliani said. “I would say this couldn’t happen to the Jewish people in America; they’re too much a part of America, they built America too much – too much respect for them.”
Giuliani then went on to lament the lack of mainstream media coverage for the story and how they don’t seem to have the proper amount of concern for those in the Jewish community.
“The censorship is frightening,” Giuliani went on to say. “When you think about it, they’re attacking Jewish people because you’re Jewish. They’re attacking Jewish people, not Israelis. Some of these people might not even agree with the policies in Israel.”
“We know the Jewish community is very divided about it. They’re getting beat up because they’re Jewish, not because they’re Israeli. And they say terrible things about Jewish people, all the usual anti-Semitic stuff,” he said.
“This is sick, but we shouldn’t be surprised: Palestinians are trained in their schools to hate Jews, and by the way they hate Americans,” Giuliani stated in conclusion.
