The COVID-19 virus may have leaked from Fort Detrick, a U.S. Army installation in Maryland, a professor of sociology at the University of Wisconsin-Parkside told Hezbollah’s Manar TV on Sunday.

Palestinian American professor Seif Da’na, who was speaking with Manar TV from Chicago, said that more people die every year from diseases like malaria and as a result of Western economic policies than have died so far from COVID-19.

Da’na compared COVID-19 to the actions of Adolf Hitler, who he said had not done “anything out of the ordinary” since his actions had been no different than those of colonial Europeans. Hitler is viewed “as Satan” only because he did these things in Europe, he said.

Support Jewish Journalism

One of the most intriguing stories of the sudden Coronavirus crisis is the role of the internet. With individuals forced into home quarantine, most are turning further online for information, education and social interaction.

JNS's influence and readership are growing exponentially, and our positioning sets us apart. Most Jewish media are advocating increasingly biased progressive political and social agendas. JNS is providing more and more readers with a welcome alternative and an ideological home.

During this crisis, JNS continues working overtime. We are being relied upon to tell the story of this crisis as it affects Israel and the global Jewish community, and explain the extraordinary political developments taking place in parallel.

Our ability to thrive in 2020 and beyond depends on the generosity of committed readers and supporters. Monthly donations in particular go a long way in helping us sustain our operations. We greatly appreciate any contributions you can make during these challenging times. We thank you for your ongoing support and wish you blessings for good health and peace of mind.
