Paul Sheldon Foote is another regular commentator on Press TV, having done eight interviews since June of 2010. His interviews pertain to financial issues, which makes sense because he is an Accounting professor at the University of California Fullerton. (His faculty webpage is here and his complete CV is here.)
Foote is also clearly an anti-Semite.
For a while Foote wrote his own anti-Semitic blog. In a post entitled “Crypto-Jews Duping Christians to Hate Muslims,” Foote claims that Jews have gone undercover as Christians in order to obscure their efforts to drum up hatred between Christians and other groups. Foote writes:
There is a very long history of the successful use of the Crypto-Jew technique. Jews have pretended to convert from Judaism to Christianity and to Islam…Currently, Crypto-Jews, Jews, Christian Zionists, Zionists, neo-conservatives (neo-Trotskyites), and others are attempting to convince Christians to hate Muslims. How many Christian soldiers have died in Iraq and in Afghanistan to advance the sick, totalitarian dreams of the admirers of Trotsky?
The title of another section of his essay speaks for itself: “Crypto-Jews Murdering Christians and Muslims to Steal Palestine.” In that section, Foote claims that Jews are responsible for the Armenian Genocide (!), and links out to the wild anti-Semitic theories of Christopher John Bjerknes. Foote also links out to the website of Holocaust denier and anti-Semitic ideologue named Michael A. Hoffman II, and says that Hoffman’s book, Judaism Discovered, “should be studied by all Christians.” The full title of Hoffman’s book, by the way, is “Judaism Discovered: A Study of the Anti-Biblical Religion of Racism, Self-Worship, Superstition and Deceit.” Foote elaborates on his love for Hoffman’s book in another blog post, where he describes it as “The Intelligent Christian’s Guide to Judaism;” he also reviews the book positively in a review on Amazon.com (scroll down). Foote also links out to two other astoundingly anti-Semitic websites which attack the Talmud and Judaism as a religion (one and two), and which are perfect examples of anti-Judaism, as I discussed in a previous post.
Like many other anti-Semites these days, Foote also has a facebook profile, where you can find many delightful goodies. He seems to be friendly with another anti-Semite named Mark Dankof; he took note when David Duke’s YouTube account was suspended and he links out to a Duke video which claims that Jews control the media; he links out to attacks on the Talmud and Kol Nidre; he links out several times to posts on the anti-Semitic website truthtellers.org, including:
- Kol Nidre: Judaism’s License to Lie
- The Jewish Kabbalah: Root of Mideast Violence
- The Talmud: Scalpel that Bleeds the Middle East
(Kind of sounds like Foote is reading my blog….)
I’m not even going into Foote’s visceral hatred for Israel, which is obvious from the links and “Likes” he has on his Facebook profile. And I’m also not going to document his bias in favor of Iran and Ahmadinejad. But it’s all there, on the Facebook profile and other sources scattered about the Web. Check it out. It can’t be that Press TV doesn’t know this. Either Press TV doesn’t care that they are repeatedly interviewing an anti-Semite, or that’s actually part of their agenda.
