Former ADL Head Defends Sebastian Gorka on North Korea: ‘I Have No Problem with Gorka’s Reference to the … – Breitbart News

I have no problem with Gorkas reference to the Holocaust. He is not comparing the North Korea situation to the Holocaust, Foxman, who previously served as the national security director of the Anti-Defamation League (ADL), told Jewish Insider. He is quoting a Holocaust survivorsharing a universal lesson of the Holocaustwhen somebody threatens to kill you take him seriously. Too many people in Europe, including the Jews of Europe, did not take Hitler seriously. Gorka is saying, take a lesson from then and take North Korea seriously.

Foxman currently serves as the Director of Center for the Study of Anti-Semitism at the Museum of Jewish Heritagein New York.

His remarks came in response to Gorka saying, When a group of people repeatedly says they want to kill you, sooner or later you should take them seriously. Dr. Gorka made the statement while recalling advice hed received from a Holocaust survivor to explain to BBC Radio 4 why he believes North Korea leader Kim Jong-uns repeated nuclear threats should be taken seriously.

What is your one take-home? What is your one lesson learnt from the horrors of the millions killed? Gorka said he asked the unidentified Holocaust survivor. And he said, Its very simple. When a group of people repeatedly says they want to kill you, sooner or later you should take them seriously.'

Iran has made similar threats against the United States with their constant chants of Death to America and Death to Israelconsidered the great and little satansand using the Star of David as a target during ballistic missiletests.

Gorka reportedly also said, North Korea has said they wish to annihilate the United States and use nuclear weapons. Sooner or later someone should take them seriously. The Clinton administration did not do so. The Obama administration did not do so. That stopped on January the 20th. We are not giving in to nuclear blackmail any longer.

President Donald Trump vowed to inflict fire and fury on North Korea if Kim threatened the United States again. The commander in chief also stated, If anything happens to Guam theres going to be big, big trouble in North Korea.

Echoing the strong rhetoric in defense of Guam from the White House, this weekDefense Secretary James Mattis stated, The [Democratic Peoples Republic of Korea] should cease any consideration of actions that would lead to the end of its regime and the destruction of its people.

Guams Homeland Security Department has distributed a two-pagepamphlet titled, In Case of EmergencyPreparing for Imminent Missile Threat,advising the islands residents how to prepare and react in case North Koreafollows through on Kims threats tolaunch anuclear strike against the U.S. territory.

While there is no way to confirm whether North Koreas regime would use a nuclear weapon in a potential attack on Guam, it is worth noting that Kims threat to Guam hinted at the use of conventional missile strikes and did not specifically refer to nuclear weapons.
