Ousted White House adviser Sebastian Gorka lashed out at liberal American Jews, saying they “have basically become anti-Israel.”
Gorka claimed he had come under attack because of his pro-Israel stance — not his long association with far right wing Hungarian group that was allied to the Nazis.
“I’ve been a great friend of Israel and I have spoken with honesty about the threat of Jihadism to the United States,” he said in an interview with right-wing radio host Michael Savage, Haaretz reported.
Gorka claimed that right-wing Jewish friends had described the increasing criticism of Israel by liberal Jews as “one of the saddest phenomena in modern American politics.”
“The people who should be supporting the American-Israeli alliance the most have done so much to betray our great friendship with Jerusalem,” he said.
Gorka also slammed the Forward, which exposed his extensive ties to a far-right wing group that was allied with the Nazis during World War II in a series of investigations.
Gorka was fired from his White House post just a week after his mentor, political supremo Steve Bannon, was also shown the door.
