Israel's Hebrew-language newspapers on Thursday were in relative unison in their condemnation of Trump's dark comparison of Charlotesville's neo-Nazi, KKK and white supremacist protestors and left-wing counter-protestors. Except for Sheldon Adelson's Israel Hayom, that is.
- On a Day That Will Live on in Infamy, Trump Reveals His True Dark Heart
- Former PM Barak: Neo-Nazi Rally in Charlottesville Reminiscent of Events in Israel
- Republican Jewish Coalition Asks Trump to 'Provide Moral Clarity' Against Far-right
For the widely circulated Yedioth Ahronoth, a large sun-soaked Trump face was plastered on the front page, under the headline "Shame," while for the Adelson-funded Israel Hayom, the Trump statement was only worthy of a page-24 burial.
Newspaper Ma'ariv's front page called Trump out for his "presidential hug of the far-right," while Haaretz's front page headline read "Trump defends neo-Nazi marchers, shocking America."
Heather Haye was killed and dozens of counter-protestors were injured on Saturday when white supremacist James Alex Fields, 20, allegedly rammed his car into a group of counter-protestors.
