  • The US has seen a wave of attacks amid renewed Israel Palestine conflict 
  • Rudy Giuliani said ‘this should not happen in America’ as he blamed Biden
  • The former New York mayor said it is a ‘very big sign of how bad things are’

Rudy Giuliani says the wave of anti-Semitic attacks in the US in the wake of the renewed Israel Palestine conflict is reminiscent of Germany in the 1930s.

The former Mayor of New York said the violence would not have happened under Donald Trump and is a response to the ‘march to socialism’ of the Joe Biden administration.

Pro-Palestinian protesters have beaten up Jewish people and chanted ‘death to Jews’ in ugly scenes which Giuliani said is the ‘biggest story in the country’.

Giuliani told Newsmax: ‘This should not happen in America… This is a very dangerous thing we’re watching.

‘That’s a very big sign of how bad things are and how fast we’re moving toward the wrong kind of government. I mean, a really fundamental change in our way of life.

‘I watch the videos and I think we’re in Germany, back in the ’30s.’ 

Giuliani emphasized that the Jewish community in the US are not responsible for the actions of the Israeli government and are often opposed to their tactics.

He said he has long supported Jews who he said are ‘too much a part of America, they built America too much – too much respect for them’.

He added that Palestinians are ‘trained in their schools to hate Jews and to hate Americans’.

The former legal counsel to Donald Trump said there was no way these attacks would happen under the former president.

‘I thought I was going to die. I thought I was really going to die,’ he told DailyMail.com on Friday.

Borgen said there were eight to 10 people taking part in the beatdown and they were shouting anti-Semitic slurs such as: ‘You filthy Jew. We’re going to f*****g kill you. Go back to Israel. Hamas is going to kill you.’
