Women’s March leader Tamika Mallory gaslighted the American public when she denied Israel right to exist in very odd and peculiar language.

In an interview with Firing Line host Margaret Hoover, Mallory first says that Palestinians are native to the land since they have been there for a very long time. She’s then asked by Hoover, “Do you feel that the Jewish people are native as well?”

This is where it gets tricky. Mallory answers by referring to Jewish people and Jewish faith as an “ideology” saying,  “I mean, I know, I understand the history, that, you know, that there are people who have a number of sort of ideologies around why the Jewish people feel this should be their land.”

She then tells Hoover that it wouldn’t be fair of her to answer the question because she isn’t Jewish. Mallory becomes irritable when Hoover points out that she’s not Palestinian and answered the same question regarding Palestinians.

Much like how she refused to condemn anti-Semitic hate preacher Louis Farrakhan, Malory continues to refuse to say that Israel has the right to exist.

Watch the video. Does Mallory think that Jews have a right to exist? You decide:

While most networks and social media were asking the big question, “Do you believe Israel has a right to exist,” the truth is likely much more sinister based on Mallory (perhaps intentional) slip of the tongue. The question is does she believe Judaism and the Jewish people are a faith and a people … or does she think it’s all an ideology?

Mallory has also been an ardent supporter of the notorious anti-Semitic leader of the Nation of Islam, Louis Farrakhan. Farrakhan believes in “death to Israel” and has referred to Jews as “termites.”

Interfaith activists struck back against Mallory, voicing the subtle dehumanization laced through Mallory’s manipulative language.
