Farage: “Jewish lobby” has disproportionate power in the US

British politician Nigel Farage faced criticism Tuesday after making antisemitic statements, suggesting on-air this that the “Jewish lobby” has a disproportionate amount of power in the United States while discussing ongoing investigations of Russian interference in the 2016 U.S. presidential election.

Speaking on his LBC show about investigations into Russian election meddling, Farage said there are “foreign lobbies” that are “very powerful” in the U.S. and have influenced American politics.

“There are about six million Jewish people living in America, so as a percentage it’s quite small, but in terms of influence its quite big,” Farage said. “They have a voice within American politics, as indeed do the Hindu groups and many other groups in America. But I don’t think anybody is suggesting that the Israeli government tried to affect the result of the American elections.”

Farage, the former leader of the right-wing UK Independence Party, was asked by a caller whether U.S. politicians are “in the pockets” of Israel, to which Farage replied: “In terms of money and influence yes they are a very powerful lobby.”

“There are other very powerful foreign lobbies in the United States of America and the Jewish lobby with its link to the Israeli government is one of those strong voices,” he continued.

Farage, a close ally of President Trump, also said that it was unlikely Russian interference in the election had a “material effect” on the election results.

The comments became the subject of backlash, with some online saying Farage was spreading conspiracy theories and anti-semitic tropes.

Farage made the comments Monday, following the bombshell report that a federal grand jury had hit former Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort and his deputy Richard Gates with a 12-count indictment on Monday morning. The indictment includes charges of conspiracy against the United States and money laundering.

Farage has forged a close alliance with Trump, appearing alongside him on the campaign trail and attending presidential debates to show support for the real estate mogul. Trump has also spoke fondly of Farage, praising his “Brexit” efforts.

this is the sort of comment that gets you checking the brakes on the car..not flying..and staying away from umbrellas..

“There are about six million Jewish people living in America, so as a percentage it’s quite small, but in terms of influence its quite big,” Farage said. “They have a voice within American politics, as indeed do the Hindu groups and many other groups in America. But I don’t think anybody is suggesting that the Israeli government tried to affect the result of the American elections.”

  1. The truth can’t be called anti-semitic, it’s just simply the truth!

  2. Read the book of Acts. There is a good reason Paul went to the Jews first, then had to go to the Gentiles second. There is also clear instances of Jews meddling with politics, not just with Pontius Pilate, but in Asia minor. Not that Pilate was innocent, but Judaism (to use it anachronistically, because I think it fits) made every effort to keep their power and control when the King of kings walked the earth. God used their evil for His good purpose (the cross), so there is comfort in knowing the evil doers and their barrage of suffering will be given what they desire eternally, which is a life only under the wrath of God. God’s people, who are in Christ, will live eternally at that Day in a world without sin and death under His good graces.
