Anti-Israel medical charity activists warn of Jewish power
The Daily Telegraph is reporting that Dr Paola Manduca and Dr Swee Ang, two outspoken anti-Israel activists and charity workers, have expressed “sympathies with the views of David Duke, a white supremacist and former Ku Klux Klan Grand Wizard.”
The Telegraph article notes:
Dr Swee Ang, an orthopaedic surgeon, and Dr Manduca, a professor of genetics at the University of Genoa in Italy – who are both members of pro-Palestine NGOs – sent round-robin emails to their contacts promoting a video entitled “CNN Goldman Sachs & the Zio Matrix”. The video features an extended anti-Semitic rant by Duke, in which he claims that “the Zionist Matrix of Power controls Media, Politics and Banking” and that “some of the Jewish elite practices racism and tribalism to advance their supremacist agenda”.
Dr Ang wrote: “This is a shocking video please watch. This is not about Palestine – it is about all of us!”
In another email, Dr Manduca forwarded a message alleging that the Boston marathon bombings were in fact carried out by Jews. “Let us hope that someone in the FBI us smart enough to look more carefully at the clues in Boston and find the real culprits behind these bombings instead of buying the Zionist spin”, it said.
NGO Monitor has compiled a comprehensive overview of Ang and Manduca’s activities – which can be read here.
Swee Ang, responding to requests for comment, stated: “I didn’t know who David Duke was, or that he was connected to the Ku Klux Klan. I am concerned that if there is any truth in the video, that Jews control the media, politics and banking, what on earth is going on? I was worried.”
As Stand for Peace has previously reported, Dr Swee Ang founded Medical Aid for Palestinians, a charity which claims to be “an independent, non-political, non-sectarian humanitarian aid organisation” that “works for the health and dignity of Palestinians living under occupation and as refugees.”
Medical Aid for Palestinians, however, has been accused of links to terror. MAP has made payments to the Al-Ihsan Charitable Society, a Palestinian group designated by the US Treasury Department in 2005 as a “charitable front for the Palestinian Islamic Jihad … [Al-Ihsan] masquerades as a charity, while actually helping to finance Palestinian Islamic Jihad’s acts of terror against the Israeli people and other innocents.”
Moreover, MAP’s founder, Dr Swee Ang, has admitted that some of the nurses in her organisation became suicide bombers in the 1980s, adding that she “wish[ed] they don’t have to do this … but to defend their people, what else can they do?” In 2002, the organisation accepted the proceeds of a book, ‘After the Terror’, which argues that “those Palestinians who have resorted to violence have been right to try to free their people, and those who have killed themselves in the cause of their people have indeed sanctified themselves.”
