Biden Picks Nominee Accused of Targeting Jews
(UnitedVoice.com) – One of the most common anti-Semitic tropes is the idea that Jewish people have dual loyalty to Israel and the US — and also that they’re controlling the world through the media. So, it’s concerning that one of President Joe Biden’s nominees has reportedly perpetuated these harmful lies.
According to a February 18 report by the Washington Free Beacon, Biden’s nominee for the position of undersecretary of State for Civilian Security, Democracy, and Human Rights has a history of pushing anti-Semitic conspiracy theories. During Uzra Zeya’s time as a Washington Report on Middle East Affairs staff member, she helped accumulate research for a book that claims the Israel lobby tried to take control of American Middle East policy. She claims they did it by undermining the US, using “dirty money” PACs to bribe US officials to support Israel.
Biden State Dept nominee @UzraZeya played a key role in assembling a book on the nefarious influence of the "Israel lobby" while working for an organization that promoted claims about Jewish media control and dual loyalty to Israel.

The Washington Report is well-known for its anti-Semitic content. It should go without saying that someone who spreads hate and bigotry should not serve in the federal government in any capacity, let alone a high-ranking one. But this is the Biden administration and he’s already shown contempt for Israel, so it’s not surprising.
