Congressman calls Jewish residents of Judea and Samaria ‘termites’

Addressing an anti-Israel audience at the DNC, a congressman likened Jewish Israelis living in Judea and Samaria to “termites.”

Rep. Hank Johnson, a Democratic member of the House Armed Services Committee, compared residents of Jewish communities in Judea and Samaria to “termites,” the Washington Free Beacon reported.

Speaking in Philadelphia at a Democratic National Convention event sponsored by the U.S. Campaign to End the Israeli Occupation, an organization that promotes Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions (BDS) against the Jewish state, the congressman from Georgia stated:

“There has been a steady [stream], almost like termites can get into a residence and eat before you know that you’ve been eaten up and you fall in on yourself, there has been settlement activity that has marched forward with impunity and at an ever-increasing rate to the point where it has become alarming.”

According to Johnson, “Jewish people” routinely steal land and property from Palestinians.

Cynthia McKinney, a former member of the House of Representatives, on Sunday posted on Twitter that Israel was complicit in the recent terror attacks in Nice and Munich. Also a Democrat from Georgia, she based her libelous allegation on the fact that an Israeli photographer was present at both incidents.
