Mohammed Elshamy, an editor at CNN, has resigned after a series of antisemitic comments he made on Twitter in 2011 resurfaced this week.
NEW: Mohammed Elshamy (@elshamyme) — a photographer and writer recently hired by @CNN — has numerous old posts showing he was a vicious anti-Semite, celebrating the deaths of “Jewish pigs” in terrorist attacks, praising Hamas, attacking “Zionists”, & more.https://t.co/PcHrLYx92X

Elshamy praised the deaths of “jewish pigs” after a Palestinian terrorist attack on innocent Israelis on a bus. Despite this, CNN still allowed him to work there. Either their vetting process is horrible, or they just did not care about the disgusting antisemitic comments Elshamy regularly made.
The prevalence of antisemitism is growing rapidly among the left, with many of the Democrat’s most prominent figures supporting the destruction of Israel. For example, just a few weeks ago, Elizabeth Warren called for Israel’s land to be given to Palestine. Additionally, radicals like Ilhan Omar (D-MN), and the rest of the squad, have regularly made antisemitic comment and their elections have greatly encouraged the push towards antisemitic policies, like the boycott of Israel, for the left.
Ask yourself, if you had a friend that was antisemitic, would you hang out with them? Probably not. So why would you ever do business with a newspaper, network or anyone that was?
