Raphael Warnock, a Democrat candidate for Senate in the state of Georgia, just got exposed by a group of rabbis.
The Coalition for Jewish Values, a group of traditional rabbis, accused Warnock of “antisemitic rhetoric” according to a report from Breitbart News.
Breitbart reports that “The group, which represents ‘over 1500 traditional rabbis in matters of public policy,’ also accused liberal Jews from the Jewish Democratic Council of America (JDCA) of trying to ‘whitewash’ Warnock’s views by circulating a petition claiming that he was the victim of ‘baseless claims and attacks.'”
The coalition of rabbis noted that although Warnock claims he does not believe Israel is an apartheid state, he signed a letter saying the opposite just last year.
The coalition also reported that Warnock, a reverend, has preached that Israel is shooting down unarmed Palestinians like “birds of prey.”
“We must say this openly: Rev. Warnock misused his pulpit to bear false witness,” said the Coalition’s official statement. “He saw no such thing, because it never happened. Each and every element of his statement was false, defamatory, and bigoted.”
