Is The US Army Anti-Semitic?
Washington - The Pentagon is currently classifying ultra-Orthodox Jews as “Religious Extremists” in presentations being shown by U.S. Army Reserve recruiters to potential enlistees.
MAILONLINE is reporting that, in a slide entitled “Religious Extremism” taken directly from the presentation, ultra-Orthodox Jews are listed alongside Al Quaeda, the Nation of Islam, the Klu Klux Klan, Hamas, and a host of others, including Evangelical Christians, Catholics, and Mormons, as potential threats.
The presentation goes on to define “religious extremism” as “beliefs and actions” that are “far” removed from the “ordinary.”
Citing a Southern Poverty Law Center report as evidence, the Pentagon lists; "economic dislocation, conspiracy theories, a changing racial make-up, and another four years under a black president as reasons for the spike in extremism".
Many terrorist groups are not on this list most notably Hezbollah which is responsible for the 1983 Beirut barracks bombing killing 241 American servicemen. The large terrorist attack was deadliest single-day death toll for the United States military since the first day of the Tet Offensive during the Vietnam War, and the deadliest single attack on Americans overseas since World War II.
The inclusion of Jews and Christians is widely seen as the left trying to further marginalize people who believe in God.
