YNet: Jews, Fox host clash over Nazi remarks
Popular Fox News host irks Jewish leaders with Holocaust references, claims Jewish group leader holds Nazi-style worldview
Jewish leaders in the US filed a complaint with Fox News over popular host Glenn Beck's harsh rhetoric, which includes colorful references to the Nazi era.
Beck, who maintains pro-Israel views, has slammed social justice organization and claimed they are dangerously reminiscent of communism, socialism, and fascism. He has been a vocal critic of president Obama, often invoking Nazi images to highlight his views.
The popular TV personality has targeted Jewish groups, among other things accusing Jewish Funds for Justice President and CEO Simon Greer of holding a Nazi-like worldview.
Later, responding to a harsh Washington post op-ed against him by Greer, Beck slammed Greer's attitude, arguing that "This leads to death camps."
"A Jew, of all people, should know that. This is exactly the kind of talk that led to the death camps in Germany — put humankind and the common good first," he said.
Jewish leaders, believing Beck went too far, filed a complaint with Fox News' chief executive. The letter led to a meeting with top network executives in an effort to calm the tensions. Meanwhile, Beck sent Greer a letter where he did not offer an apology, but said he took the concerns expressed by about him very seriously.
Yedieot Aharonot/YNet - They read it on Huffington Post and report it as original content. At least credit your sources. YNet isn't a blog, it's not some guy goofing off his office job while linking all over the place - it's a news paper with actual reporters. Itzhak Ben Horin collects a paycheck in the US from YNet for the great job of cut and paste from huffington post. So lame.
