Defenders of a Racist President Use Jews as Human Shields, New York Times
“Jeremy Ben-Ami, the president of the liberal Zionist group J Street, puts part of the blame for this rhetorical derangement at the feet of the American Jewish establishment. Its leaders made an alliance of convenience with right-wing Christian Zionists, who support the state of Israel as the fulfillment of biblical prophecy and a bulwark of Western values in the Middle East, but care little about pluralism in the United States […] ‘When they start asking people to go back where they came from, that’s the first line of attack on the Jewish people over centuries,’ said Ben-Ami. It’s terrifying enough to have a president who says such things. It’s an almost incalculable insult for Trump and his enablers to act as if he’s helping the Jews when he adopts the language of the pogrom.”

Iran denies Trump’s claim that U.S. warship destroyed one of its drones, Washington Post
Iran’s top military force said on Friday that it would release images of an American warship taken by one of its drones to disprove prove President Trump’s claim that the U.S. military had brought it down. The Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps said the footage would show the U.S.S. Boxer entering the Strait of Hormuz. It was taken both before and after the time the Pentagon said the drone was destroyed, according to a statement quoted by Iranian state media outlets.
