JNS.org – The Republican National Convention on Monday disabled the live chat feature on its official live stream YouTube page after it was bombarded with antisemitic comments during a speech by Linda Lingle, the Jewish former governor of Hawaii.

Lingle spoke about the division in Democratic leadership on support for Israel, in contrast to the position of the Republican Party on the Jewish state.

“On one issue after another, from Boycott, Divestment, and Sanctions (BDS), to the Iran nuclear agreement, to the very legitimacy of Israel, they’re divided,” Lingle said about Democrats, continuing that “with those that don’t care for Israel getting stronger in the Democratic Party. You’ll find no such divisions in the Republican Party’s leadership.”

While Lingle spoke, several people wrote in the comments section, “Ban Jews,” “Kike,” “Press H for Hitler,” and “Oy Gevalt,” Rawstory.com reported with captured screen shots of the comments.

    Woe to Israel if the democrats take charge of America. Clinton will work hand in hand with Obama and the U.N. To finish what he started. The complete annihilation of Israel…that’s the plan……why do you think Islam is the largest contributorbl to her foundation. They own her lock, stock, and barrel.

      Woe to the United States and Israel if Trump gets elected. Trump is completely unpredictable and reckless. A great guy to have on the nuclear button. (hs, ha) His wife cant even give a speech without plagiarizing. Keep ignoring all the anti-semites who Trump supports to your peril – go ahead, make believe Trump doesn’t foment racism and anti-semitism. Fantasy.

      No one. Can argue against your facts The 2 Clinton’s and the people they are closest to are the same, not friends of Israel at the Core and Obama he should just admitted that he was an Israel Hater. It can’t be any more plain.
