The ‘Jewish race’ is the smartest in the world and possesses the highest human capital, so Israelis ought to be skeptical about the current corruption probes into Israel’s PM Benjamin Netanyahu, a Likud party lawmaker has claimed.
“I can tell you something very basic,” MK Miki Zohar said, during a debate on Radio 103FM on Wednesday, as cited by the Times of Israel:
“You can’t fool the Jews, no matter what the media writes. The public in Israel is a public that belongs to the Jewish race, and the entire Jewish race is the highest human capital, the smartest, the most comprehending.”
Following the lead set by "Aussie Dave" (Israellyfools), Likud's MK Miki Zohar proclaims supremacy of ‘Jewish race’. All normal for fascists, nothing to see here.https://t.co/7w42d2jj20@RepairMyWorld @freegazaorg #auspol @leerhiannon #Palestine @abcnews

Citing opinion polls showing widespread support for Netanyahu, Zohar said that statistics clearly show that the “Jewish race” is too smart to be fooled by extensive media coverage of the multiple corruption probes.
The somewhat clumsy attempt to defend the Israeli PM immediately landed the ruling party member in hot water.
Ayer un diputado israelí del partido Likud, Miki Zohar, proclamó que la “raza judía” es la más inteligente del mundo y posee el “capital humano más alto”, razón por la cual, dijo, el público israelí no se creyó las acusaciones de maldad de Netanyahu.https://t.co/vQknZfQDis

The loud statement about Jewish supremacy struck a nerve with Ahmad Tibi, an Arab-Muslim Israeli politician, and leader of the Arab Movement for Change party, who, on Twitter, accused his Israeli counterpart of devising his own racial theory.

In an attempt to quell criticism and clarify what exactly he meant to say, Zohar gave an interview to Hadashot TV – but only made his case worse, denying that he’d mentioned the supremacy of the Jewish race until he was furnished with a recording of his statement.
He then reiterated:
“The Jewish people and the Jewish race are of the highest human capital that exists. What can you do? We were blessed by God… I don’t have to be ashamed about the Jewish people being the Chosen People; the smartest, most special people in the world.”
