The Mooch Denounces Two States And J Street: They Don’t Know From Israel

The onetime White House Communications Director known as “The Mooch” met with students at Rutgers Chabad on Monday to discuss countering anti-Israel campaigns on campus, Jewish Insider reported.

“I am a one state solution person,” Anthony Scaramucci told students. “I know there are places like J Street [that push the two state solution]… but they don’t really understand the issue.”

Scaramucci’s remarks came during J Street’s 10th anniversary national conference. The non profit liberal organization states that their aim is to “advocate for policies that advance shared US and Israeli interests as well as Jewish and democratic values, leading to a two-state solution to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict.”

While not Jewish himself, Scaramucci has been known to support Jewish causes, including making a $25,000 donation to the Simon Wiesenthal Center in 2017.

“They are not spending enough time in the area understanding the history, and they certainly are not spending enough time understanding that people want to take that state out in the worst possible way. And you cannot let that happen,” Scaramucci added of organizations that are for a two state solution.
