据《以色列时报》报道,美国前总统川普上周在接受保守派脱口秀主持人阿里·霍夫曼的电台节目采访时声称,自己没有得到来自犹太人的投票支持,是因为美国很多犹太人不喜欢以色列。

川普还声称,“直到大约十年前”,以色列“实际上拥有美国国会”,而如今“它几乎是相反的”。川普说道:“在AOC(指美国众议员亚历山德里亚·奥卡西奥-科尔特斯)和伊尔汉·奥马尔之间,还有这些憎恨以色列的人。他们满怀激情地憎恨以色列,他们控制着国会,以色列不再是国会中的一支力量。我的意思是,这太神奇了。我从未见过这样的变化。”




报道指出,民主党人科尔特斯和奥马尔2019年进入国会。今年9月,11名议员没有投票赞成为以色列“铁穹”导弹防御系统追加援助10亿美元资金(奥卡西奥-科尔特斯投了弃权票,奥马尔投了反对票)。但众议院仍以420票赞成的压倒性多数通过了该法案。

报道称,这位前总统继续复述了他在对犹太团体讲话时最喜欢讲的一个故事。

“有人亲切地告诉我,我可以竞选以色列总理,而且非常容易获胜。他们那里都喜欢我。”川普说,然后将他在以色列的受欢迎程度与美国的犹太人对他的看法作了对比。

川普说,“令人难以置信的是,我没有得到你认为我会得到的来自犹太人的投票支持。这个国家(美国)的犹太人,他们中的许多人不喜欢以色列。看看《纽约时报》恶毒地反对以色列,这实在是一件可怕的事情”。报道指出称,这显然是在暗示该媒体是由犹太人经营的。

去年6月,川普在接受杂志《Ami》采访时说,美国犹太人不够爱以色列,否则他们会在去年的总统选举中投票给他。

报道称,川普2018年对美国犹太人讲话时,把以色列称为“你们的国家”,他在其他场合也说过这样的话。川普还因为说投票给民主党的犹太人是“不忠诚的”而招来批评。

A decade ago, Israel "literally owned Congress" and was "so powerful", but that changed after members of the Squad were elected in 2018, former US President Donald Trump said in an interview on Monday.

"[Israel] was so powerful and today it's almost the opposite. You have between AOC and Omar, these people that hate Israel," Trump told Ari Hoffman, a Seattle-based radio talk show host, referring to representatives Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and Ilhan Omar.

"They hate it with a passion. They are controlling Congress and Israel is not a force in Congress anymore. It's just amazing."

Trump's comments come just weeks after a contentious debate among Democrats in the House of Representatives over US funding of Israel's Iron Dome missile defence system.

Funding for the system was removed from a US government emergency spending bill after progressive party members, who object to condition-free US support for Israel, criticised its inclusion.

But days later, the Democratic leadership in the House pushed forward a standalone bill to provide $1bn for Iron Dome which passed overwhemingly with 420 to nine votes.

Omar was one of the nine representatives who voted against the standalone bill while Ocasio-Cortez cried as she switched her vote from "no" to "present", a move heavily criticised by many of her supporters.

Trump's comments drew criticism from the Anti-Defamation League which tweeted that Israel "does not control Congress" and that Trump's remarks played into antisemitic tropes about Jewish control of government and were "unacceptable".

Anti-semitism accusations
In 2019, Omar was accused of antisemitism after she suggested that support for Israel was driven by the financial and political power of the pro-Israel lobby group, the American Israel Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC).

She later apologised after critics accused her of using an antisemitic trope that could have been seen as Jews using money to control society, although commentators told Middle East Eye at the time that the point she was making was spot on.

Some observers said on Tuesday that Trump - who has been repeatedly accused of antisemitism - had been let off lightly.

Lara Friedman, president of the Washington, DC-based Foundation for Middle East Peace, tweeted: "So saying something like this to attack Dems as anti-Israel is fine, right? But just imagine the shrieks of rage if same words were spoken by [a] member of the Squad."
