Two of five doctors who hijacked a highly respected British medical journal in August to publish a venomous anti-Israel article also used their email to endorse a video by white supremacist and former KKK Grand Wizard and a David Duke.
The Lancet, described by the London Telegraph as ”a venerable and well-respected British medical journal, published an “open letter for the people of Gaza ”that condemned Israel’s counter-terror campaign. The “letter” actually was an article.
Other medical publications, most notably the British Medical Journal, routinely allow their authors to exploit their positions to dump on Israel, but the endorsement of David Duke’s video crossed all red lines – except Lancet’s.
The journal’s editor, Dr. Richard Horton refused to apologize for publishing the article co-authored by a KKK enthusiast and told the Telegraph, “I don’t honestly see what all this has to do with the Gaza letter. I have no plans to retract the letter, and I would not retract the letter even if it was found to be substantiated.”
The dwindling anti-Israel crowd, whose soap box get smaller and smaller and smaller as Hamas war crimes become larger and larger, is so intellectually bankrupt that Dr. Horton had to resort to total illogic to back himself. “How can you separate politics and health? The two go hand-in-hand,” he said.
And this man calls himself a doctor?
The David Duke video in question is called “CNN, Goldman Sachs & the Zio Matri, in which Duke 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.”
The two doctors-for-Duke are Swee Ang, an orthopedic surgeon, and Paola Manduca, a professor of genetics at the University of Genoa in Italy.
They not only are not embarrassed over their open anti-Semitic statements but actually defend them.
“This is a shocking video please watch. This is not about Palestine – it is about all of us!” wrote Dr. Ang after watching the Duke video.
Dr. Manduca, besides endorsing the video, “forwarded a message alleging that the Boston marathon bombings were in fact carried out by Jews,” according to the Telegraph. In one e-mail, she wrote, “Let us hope that someone in the FBI is 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.”
Dr. Ang explained to the newspaper, “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.”
Here is a woman, a doctor, who saw something on the Internet and was worried that “if” there was any truth to it, he was worried.
And this woman calls herself a doctor?
If she was worried about truth in what he reads, she should start with the Koran.
As for Dr. Manduca, she said that she is not anti-Semitic, God forbid, and that her “right of freedom of opinion” justifies her statements.
No, she is not anti-Semitic but in the same breath told the Telegraph, she “does not agree or value the politics of the government of Israel, nor of many others, including Jews in and out of Israel.”
Another author of the article in Lancet is Dr. Mads Gilbert, who told the Norwegian newspaper Dagbladet in 2001 that he supported terrorist attacks in the “connect” that 9/11 atrocities was a result of Western foreign policy.
