Netanyahu’s Son Met With Former Trump Aide With Ties To Nazi-Allied Group

Former White House advisor Sebastian Gorka had dinner with the son of Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu during the AIPAC Policy Conference in Washington, D.C., this past weekend. In 2017, the Forward reported that Gorka has extensive ties, stretching back decades, to a Hungarian paramilitary group that was allied with the Nazis.

Gorka has denied formal allegiance to the group.

In his tweet, Gorka said he was “honored” to eat with Yair Netanyahu.

The younger Netanyahu responded with a warm tweet of his own.

In 2017, the Forward reported that Gorka had forged extensive ties with the Vitezi Rend, a Hungarian paramilitary group, as well as allied with politicians responsible for publishing anti-Semitic content in Hungary. The Forward published further evidence that “Gorka, President Trump’s top anti-terrorism adviser, had documented ties with fascist, anti-Semitic groups just a few years before he assumed a powerful and sensitive position in the White House.”

Gorka left his post as White House adviser in late August.
