NEW YORK (VINnews) — Elon Musk is a philo-semite who stands up for Jewish values. He has been unfairly targeted by woke leftists, including some Jewish groups, who view him as a threat, when in reality the only thing he threatens is evil.Join our WhatsApp group

In a world where fake news and censorship have become rampant, Musk defends the truth, even to his own detriment. His lofty mission is very much aligned with Jewish values.
Musk has been a friend to the Jews, yet he is being unfairly targeted by radical leftist organizations who use the label “antisemite” to discredit those with whom they disagree politically.
In the latest incident, Musk rightfully called out evil billionaire George Soros, who happens to be Jewish. Musk compared Soros to Marvel Comics villain “Magneto,” who some observed was a character intended to be a Jewish Holocaust survivor.
You assume they are good intentions. They are not. He wants to erode the very fabric of civilization. Soros hates humanity.

He was subsequently accused of spreading or inciting antisemitism by several large Jewish groups, including the Israeli government.
David Saranga, director of digital diplomacy at Israel’s Foreign Ministry, said that Musk had tweeted with “an antisemitic flavor.” That prompted Foreign Minister Eli Cohen to revamp the tweeting process within the Ministry, to ensure it never happens again.
Ted Deutch, CEO of the American Jewish Committee, is among those who accused Musk of deliberately comparing Soros to a character with a similar backstory. “As I told Jake Tapper, Elon Musk’s language when talking about George Soros was not an accident. It’s the legacy of ancient conspiracies of nefarious Jews with undue power,” he tweeted. “It’s The Protocols of the Elders of Zion for the Internet age. It’s false and flat-out dangerous.”
ADL chief Jonathan Greenblatt claimed that Musk’s tweet was dangerous.
Pointing out that Soros is a terrible person isn't anti-Semitic in the slightest.
He has nothing to do with Judaism other than the fact that he's Jewish. He's talked about for being terrible, not for being Jewish.
Signed, an Orthodox Jew.

It is outrageous that Musk is being treated this way, although it is something we have come to expect from leftist Jews.
When CNBC interviewer David Faber, told Musk he was now being accused of antisemitism, Musk replied: “No, I’m definitely not I’m like, I’m like a pro-semite, if anything.”

In response to the backlash, many Jews (and non-Jews) came to Musk’s defense.
Dov Hikind tweeted: “@elonmusk is absolutely entitled to criticize Soros without being labeled an antisemite! Soros is not beyond critique by dint of his being Jewish and Elon didn’t mention anything about Soros’s religion. Using “antisemitism” to insulate Soros is sick!”

Rabbi Yaakov Menken, Managing Director of the Coalition for Jewish Values, tweeted: “It is very disappointing that Israel’s Foreign Ministry joined @JGreenblattADL claiming @elonmusk was wrong to call out Soros and Soros’ malign influence. That antisemites tar all Jews with Soros is antisemitic, but blasting Soros is a Mitzvah.”

Daily Wire co-founder Jeremy Boreing said on Twitter: “This isn’t hard. Disliking, distrusting, denouncing a man who is Jewish is not antisemitism.”
“Disliking, distrusting, denouncing a man because he is Jewish is antisemitism. Disliking, distrusting, denouncing “The Jews” because of the actions of some people who are Jewish is also antisemitism.”
Musk’s Twitter upholds bans on antisemites Kanye West, and Nick Fuentes, and other Jew haters. Because Musk is clearly aware that there is a red line beyond which free speech becomes dangerous incitement.
Musk does not have an agenda, other than defending the truth. This is a value that as Jews, we greatly cherish, and which sadly has become far too rare, in the information age which has tragically become the ‘disinformation age’.
