Were the Jewish Prophets Antisemites? Netanyahu Says Yes!

“If the prophets of ancient Israel…were alive today, Netanyahu would accuse them of anti-Semitism for daring to describe his government as a travesty of what the Mosaic covenant was all about.”

“A common thread running throughout the Jewish Bible  was to criticize kings, the wealthy and corrupt courts for violating the Mosaic commandments…If the prophets were summoned to give judgment today, it is Netanyahu’s right-wing Likud Party and the steeply unequal economy of Israel that would be condemned as violating the most basic laws of Biblical Judaism.”

An unusual but very interesting article from political economist Michael Hudson.
