Israeli Consul General Anat Sultan-Dadon reportedly wrote a letter to CNN demanding the network apologize for allowing anchor Christiane Amanpour to compare President Donald Trump and his administration to Nazis.

The letter, which was given to The Jerusalem Post  . . . said Amanpour’s remarks disrespected those who died during the Holocaust and misrepresented the actual events.

Amanpour, CNN’s international anchor, said Nov. 12 that Kristallnacht — which translates to the Night of Broken Glass — was a turning point that “led to a genocide against a whole identity.”


“Using the memory of the Holocaust for cheap headlines or a political agenda is concerning and distorts the historical and moral truth,” Yankelevitch said, according to The Jerusalem Post.

Former Israeli consul-general in New York Danny Dayan tweeted “the foolish comparison Amanpour made between Kristallnacht and Trump must bring about her immediate dismissal from CNN. There is no immunity for Holocaust deniers.”
