Apparently, NY Times Nicholas Kristof thinks the pro-Israel group AIPAC are pigs. At least that’s what he retweeted. He also is not a fan of the NRA and the pro-business Chamber of Commerce. No wonder they love him at the Times.
Israel National News reported:
A New York Times columnist has come under fire after retweeting a controversial message that referred to the American Israel Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC) and the National Rifle Association (NRA) as “the 2 most pig like lobbies” in America.

According to Adam Kredo of The Washington Free Beacon, Columnist Nicholas Kristof on Wednesday afternoon retweeted the message written by longtime Israel critic M.J. Rosenberg, which recalled the recently unearthed statements by Egyptian President Mohamed Morsi that referred to Jews as “pigs.”
“OBAMA told the 2 most pig like lobbies, AIPAC & NRA, to drop dead in same month. Next: Chamber of Commerce,” wrote Rosenberg, who was recently fired by the liberal Media Matters for America for his use of borderline anti-Semitic language.
Rosenberg has gained notoriety within pro-Israel circles for regularly espousing anti-Israel and often anti-Semitic beliefs.
