Is it surprising that Mr. Rachman, in his stirring defense of Mr. Soros, elides from his potted history Soros’ support of the 2014 Ukrainian Coup? He was one of many of its supporters, among them: NATO, the EU , The Foundation for the Defense of Democracies, and Neo-Cons Victoria Nuland and Jeffrey Pyatt.

But not to forget Right Sector and Svoboda, those inconvenient Neo-Faschists, to Mr. Rachman’s tale of Antisemitism directed at the virtuous Mr. Soros.
Mr. Soros is just another billionaire, who puts his money where he will. And whose politics are Neo-Liberal, and his judgement always questionable, if not downright destructive. How many people died in Ukraine because of his political dilettantism? Are his opponents legion, they come from across the political spectrum. How convenient that Mr. Rachman focuses his hectoring polemic against those bad actors, and doesn’t direct any attention to of Mr. Soros, as a bad actor in his own right!
