The meme posted on Friday appeared to be a classic anti-Semitic caricature suggesting that Jews control the United States. It has appeared widely on extreme alt-right websites. The former KKK leader David Duke also tweeted his support to Netanyahu’s son.
The neo-Nazi website Daily Stormer published an article supporting Yair, 25-years, “Yair Netanyahu is a total bro,” wrote Daily Stormer reporter Andrew Eglin, “this is one of those things that is just so fun, you feel really glad that it happened.”
“Like, the type of thing that makes you remember how thankful you are for having been born.”
The website also reminded his supporters that Netanyahu had accused the Israeli newspaper Haaretz, who first reported the story, of being anti-Semites themselves. “Wow just wow” he greeted “They just accusing each other of being anti-Semites.”
“That was always the fundamental problem with the concept of Israel: when you make Jews live only among themselves, they start feeding off of one another.”
Former Prime Minister Ehud Barak responded by saying that Yair Netanyahu should see a psychiatrist.”Is this what the kid hears at home? What is this, genetics or a spontaneous mental illness?” Barak wrote on Facebook.
“It doesn’t matter. At any rate, it would be really worth it to pay for a psychiatrist for him, instead of a personal security detail and private vehicle,” hinting to criticism Netanyahu has come under for retaining a government-funded bodyguard, unlike the adult children of previous Israeli leaders.
Yair Netanyahu responded, “I hope Ehud Barak did not tweet about me from his Boston residence (where he goes from one dubious business deal to another) while he is drunk (which I remember him as often being). It’s time for a geriatric doctor, Ehud.”
