David Duke, perhaps America's most well known anti-Semite, has been in the Jew hating business for over 40 years. Duke is a prominent white supremacist, anti-Semite, conspiracy theorist, Holocaust denier, and former Grand Wizard of the KKK.
Duke has written and published his anti-Semitic manifesto in books like "Jewish Supremacism: My Awakening to the Jewish Question" and pieces like "Zionism as a Form of Ethnic Supremacism." He has been arrested in and banned from several countries for promoting Nazism.
Here are a few of Duke's hateful remarks:
"The Zionists have used the Holocaust as a weapon to deny the rights of the Palestinians and cover up the crimes of Israel." - At the former President of Iran Mahmoud Ahmadinejad's Holocaust Denial Conference
"Israel makes the Nazi state look very, very moderate." -Interview with Syrian television
"These Jews who run things, who are producing this mental illness teenage suicide...all these Jewish sicknesses...that's nothing new. The Talmud is full of things like sex with boys and girls." - Interview with Evelyn Rich
Although Duke is a far-right extremist he endorses and is being endorsed by anti-Semites from other radical groups from the far left and radical Muslims.
In 2018, Duke praised the election of anti-Semite Jeremy Corbyn to the Labour leadership as a sign that people were recognizing “Zionist power” and “Jewish establishment power.”
Most recently, Duke endorsed anti-Semitic Congresswomen Ilhan Omar and Rashida Tlaib and called Omar the most important person in Congress.
Duke's collaboration with Radical Muslims resembles the relationship between Adolf Hitler and the Grand Mufti of Jerusalem Haj Amin Al-Husseini 80 years ago when the two colluded to exterminate Jews.
On July 24, 2019, the pro-Hezbollah website kheybar.net glorified Duke's anti-Semitism and promoted his speech titled "Exposing the Real Nature of Zionism". The website champions Duke's theory of how Zionism is a "Jewish Supremacist" movement meant to control Western powers.
“Khaybar khaybar ya yahud” is a call for massacring Jews referencing the Muslim massacre of thousands of Jews in the village of Khayber (Northwest Arabia 628 CE), which is often used in radical Muslim rallies across the U.S.
While many try to deny the nexus and similarities between anti-Semitism on the far-right, radical left, and among radical Muslims, Duke's endorsement by Hezbollah and his support of Corbyn, Omar, and Tlaib are clearly telling us otherwise.
These radical hate groups are united in their hatred towards the Jewish people and it is upon us to work together to expose their members and hold them accountable.
