White House honours virulent anti-Israel playwright with medal

Breitbart news reports that Tony Kushner is being given the National Medal of Arts and National Humanities Medal by the White House. As Breitbart reports

How much does Kushner, who is gay and Jewish, hate Israel? Try these statements:

[Israel was] founded in a program that, if you really want to be blunt about it, was ethnic cleansing, and that today is behaving abominably towards the Palestinian people.

I’ve never been a Zionist. I have a problem with the idea of a Jewish state. It would have been better if it never happened.

Ha’aretz reporter: … you are saying that the very creation of Israel as a Jewish state was not a good idea. Kushner: I think it was a mistake

The existence of the state of Israel, because of the terrible way that the Palestinian people have been treated, is now in great peril and the world is in peril as a consequence of it.

The biggest supporters of Israel are the most repulsive members of the Jewish community.
