Gadi Taub attacks "Haaretz" after his dismissal: "Engages in inciting anti-Semitism"
The journalist commented on 103FM about the storm that broke out following the cessation of publication of his articles in the newspaper: "The state should not pay a newspaper that is not just criticizing it, it is against it"

Ma'ariv, 103FM, 01/26/2023.

Later, he supported the words of Communications Minister Karhi who said that he would stop the publication of government ads in the Haaretz newspaper. "That the state should not pay a newspaper that not only criticizes it, it is against it, that it supplies most of the incendiary material to neo-Nazi websites by defaming us, this is the most cited source on Nazi websites, because it really deals with inflaming anti-Semitism, so why should the state finance the this? Especially in the age of the Internet"

"It was like an admission of weakness," says Dr. Gadi Taub, "I wouldn't have expected a newspaper to want to do something like that, instead of answering - you are excommunicating. The newspaper "Haaretz" worked on a massive deception of the public. He set up a wall of lies within which his big pages will hide the reality, they cannot afford someone to make a hole in this screen."

When asked why he wrote in the newspaper in the first place, Dr. Taub answers: "I wanted to influence those on the margins but not completely poisoned, on intelligent people, Zionists with a dovish view, anxious about the fate of the country.. Although the newspaper is against the Zionist enterprise, an anti-Semitic newspaper, provides fuel for anti-Semitic fires in the world, neo-Nazi websites quote from it."

Taub explains why exactly now he was fired: "The elite in Hysteria, they are not saving democracy, they are trying to save their rule. We live in an insane regime. This is the end of their rule. This is a decisive battle between a Deep State and a Democratic State."

Adds Dr. Taub and says: "Publishing my article would have exposed the lie to a lesser extent than my dismissal. I was glad that they are telling the truth - we are not ready to tolerate your opinions. They protect democracy by saying that it is not allowed to express other opinions and that is not so democratic."
