Apple and Google are distributing a free app that spreads the anti-Israel and anti-Semitic coronavirus conspiracies of Rick Wiles and TruNews.
Anti-Semitic conspiracy preacher and Christian pastor Rick Wiles is using his TruNews website to spread vile anti-Semitic conspiracies claiming that the coronvirus is a “plague” designed to punish the Jews.
“This is classic anti-Semitism mixed with religious triumphalism. It is unsurprising coming from Pastor Rick Wiles, whose ‘news’ outlet is a primary source for outrageous anti-Semitic conspiracy theories,” responded Anti-Defamation League (ADL) and national director Jonathan Greenblatt in a report by JNS.
Wiles also falsely claimed that the epicenter of the coronavirus outbreak in the United States was the pro-Israel AIPAC Policy Conference in Washington, D.C.
As JNS documented in its report on Wiles, the pastor “has a history of making anti-Semitic remarks, including blaming the so-called ‘Jewish mafia and ‘Jewish lobby’ and calling Jews ‘deceivers’ and ‘domestic enemies.'”In November 2019, he claimed that attempts to impeach U.S. President Donald Trump represent a “Jew coup.”
Wiles ranted, “That’s the way the Jews work, they are deceivers, they plot, they lie, they do whatever they have to do to accomplish their political agenda…
“People are going to be forced, … to take a stand because of this Jew coup in the United States. There will be a purge. That’s the next thing that happens when Jews take over a country, they kill millions of Christians.”
While TruNews was permanently banned from YouTube in February for repeatedly violating its hate speech rules, Wiles’ TruNews app is still available for free on the Google Play Store and Apple’s online app store.
The time has come for Apple and Google to stop helping hatemonger Rick Wiles spread his anti-Israel, anti-Semitic propaganda!
