Elon Musk to Face Netanyahu after Antisemitic Post

(TargetDailyNews.com) – Elon Musk visited Israel to witness the aftermath of the October 7th surprise attacks and see if there was anything he could do to help. Musk was shown Kfar Azza, one of the communities assaulted during the attack. It’s where Abigail Edan lived, a four-year-old American-Israeli dual citizen who was taken hostage by Hamas and released on Sunday.

During a live conversation with Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu on X, Musk agreed with Netanyahu that Hamas needed to be eradicated and removed from power. He suggested that any organization with murder and mayhem as its methods can’t be allowed to continue. He further suggested Gaza could be made prosperous once they’re removed.

Musk also had a closed-door meeting with Israeli President Isaac Herzog. The president’s office suggested they discussed online antisemitism. In a published statement, Herzog claimed there was a “large reservoir” of anti-Jewish hate online and suggested Musk had a responsibility to deal with it.

Musk also met with the families of some of the hostages. Rachel Goldberg told CNN’s Jake Tapper on Monday that Musk was “genuinely concerned and moved” by a video she shared with him showing her 23-year-old son, Hersh Goldberg-Polin, losing an arm in the attacks.

She further qualified Musk as “very sympathetic” and “clearly shaken and rattled” by his experience in Israel. Omer Shem-Tov, another hostage parent, gave Musk a dog tag that read “Our hearts are hostage in Gaza.” Musk put it on and promised to wear it until the hostages were all released.

Musk was heavily criticized for agreeing with sentiments that suggested Jewish organizations had pushed anti-white rhetoric in the past. Enemies of Musk and its competitors in traditional media jumped on the opportunity to slander X as a hotbed of antisemitism.

Major advertisers have left or paused their ad buys on X causing a temporary drop in revenue.

X is suing leftist propaganda outlet Media Matters for falsely claiming advertisements were appearing regularly next to extremist rhetoric. Musk said Media Matters curated a feed by following accounts that spew hateful rhetoric and then scrolled until they got the desired result of seeing an advertisement next to something outrageous.
