The NY rabbi who videotaped veteran White House correspondent Helen Thomas telling Jews to “get the hell out of Palestine” says he has received numerous death threats and thousands of pieces of hate mail.
At a guess, I’d say that there are at least as many Lefties making these threats as Muslims.
Rabbi David Nesenoff said he is facing an “overload” of threatening e-mails calling for a renewed Holocaust and targeting his family — a barrage of hate he said he planned to report to the police on Wednesday.
Nesenoff said he was shocked not only by Thomas’ original remarks but by the wave of insults and threats he has received since his videotape brought about her public shaming and the end of her 50-year career at the White House.
“This is something that I thought was a couple of people here or there, [but] it’s mainstream and it’s frightening,” the Long Island rabbi said. “[Thomas] is just a little cherry on top of this huge, huge sundae of hate in America.”
Thomas apologized for her remarks last week after the video surfaced online and was posted to several prominent blogs. But even as Thomas backed off from her remarks, e-mailers have continued to assail Nesenoff, who has begun posting dozens of malicious letters and YouTube comments on his website, RabbiLive.com.
“We received a lot of positive reaction, beautiful letters … from all over the United States,” he said, but they have been outweighed by the attacks that have flooded in. FOX NEWS
