Controversial Speakers Denounce Israel at Capitol Hill

( – The Capitol Hill Club (CHC) recently featured two anti-Israel speakers both of whom made critical statements and directed allegations toward the Jewish State. The CHC is a long-established Republican club in Washington, D.C. that boasts almost every Republican member of Congress as being among its membership. The two controversial speakers were Israeli-American activist Miko Peled and Max Blumenthal, the son of notorious Clinton operative Sidney Blumenthal.

Blumenthal took to the stage and downplayed the reports that women were raped during the Hamas attack on October 7th, 2023. He said there is no documented or physical evidence that any such assaults occurred. He called the stories and reports that women were raped a “psy-op” orchestrated by the Israeli government. Blumenthal likewise dismissed allegations that any children were killed by Hamas insurgents. He also alleged that the 1,200 people who were reported to have been killed by Hamas were in actuality killed by Israeli forces as a means to create propaganda that would justify their action in Gaza. Blumenthal went on to dismiss all eyewitness accounts of rape and murder committed by Hamas as more Israeli propaganda.

Not to be upstaged, Peled went even further and told the audience that the nation of Israel should not exist. He said it was created back when “white Europeans” could simply give their friends the countries of brown people. He said its foundation links back to the influence of Jewish billionaire Lord Rothschild. Peled also praised the Hamas factions as succeeding whenever they challenged the Israeli military. He said when put to the test the Israeli military is “exposed as a paper tiger” as was proven most recently on October 7th.

The CHC said the views expressed by these speakers do not reflect those of the “vast majority” of club members. The club’s general manager, Stan Lawson, said they were invited by one member, John Henry. He said he was only made aware the men would be speaking a few hours before the event began and did not support them. Lawson also said the CHC is dealing with the event and its fallout internally.
