“Crush Zionism”: SWC Condemns Greta Thunberg for Chants Outside Israeli Embassy in Stockholm

November 26, 2023

So Called Global Influencer Continues to Parrot Lies that spread Jew-hatred

The Simon Wiesenthal Center (SWC) is condemning Greta Thunberg for chanting “crush Zionism” outside the Israeli embassy in Stockholm during a recent demonstration.

Rabbi Abraham Cooper, Associate Dean and Director of Global Social Action at the SWC, issued the following statement:

“One of the youngest global influencers, Miss Thunberg may be the anointed spokesperson to warn the world about climate change but she also turns out to be a spokesperson of the 21st century polluters of history’s oldest hate—anti-Semitism.
She has zero emissions of empathy for Jewish girls and women who were mass murdered, raped, kidnapped, and taken hostage. She has zero sympathy for the Jewish people who suffered the worst mass murder since the end of the Holocaust on October 7th. Still, she parrots and legitimizes the lies that spread deadly carcinogenic Jew-hatred across social media and on the campuses and streets of world capitals, including Stockholm.
By marrying global warming and global anti-Semitism, she brings shame to the international campaigns to prepare a better world for future generations.”
