Prince Harry to host conversation with anti-Zionist trauma expert
REVEALED: Prince Harry to host ‘intimate’ public conversation with trauma expert who has defended Hamas rockets, called Israeli government ‘terrorists’ and praised conspiracy theorist for making list of top ten anti-Semites
- In an effort to continue promoting his memoir Spare, Prince Harry will have a conversation with virulent anti-Zionist Gabor Maté
- Maté said during the most recent conflict with the Palestinians said that Hamas was ‘nothing compared to the terrorism of the Israeli government’
- ‘If Prince Harry knew this man’s record and still chose him for the interview, our Centre would criticize the prince’ for the choice, said Rabbi Abraham Cooper
Prince Harry will soon hold an ‘intimate’ public conversation with a leftist trauma expert who has previously compared Hamas terrorists to those who rose up from the Warsaw Ghetto.
Gabor Maté, 79, who has previously congratulated people who make the Simon Wiesenthal Centre’s top ten antisemites of the year list, has a long history of published anti-Israel sentiments.
This weekend, Maté will take part in a livestreamed discussion with the prince about ‘living with loss and the importance of personal healing.’ Tickets at going for $33.09.
It is unclear whether or not Prince Harry is personally aware of how controversial a character Maté is, but Rabbi Abraham Cooper of the Simon Wiesenthal Centre told the Jewish Chronicle, ‘whoever made the arrangements to have this individual appear with Prince Harry, did him no favors.’
‘If Prince Harry knew this man’s record and still chose him for the interview, our Centre would criticize the prince for such an inappropriate choice,’ he continued.

Maté is a survivor of the Holocaust and Harry, as detailed in his recently published memoir ‘Spare,’ went through grief publicly after losing his mother Princess Diana.
Maté was born in Budapest, Hungary in 1944. When Maté was five months old, his maternal grandparents were killed in Auschwitz. One year later, his mother left him in the care of stranger who subsequently saved his life. She returned five weeks later but Maté says he was so hurt he avoided looking at her for several days and claims the trauma of ‘abandonment, rage and despair’ still influences him today.
Though some of Maté’s work is based on his experience in the Holocaust, in the aftermath of his remaining family’s immigration to Canada, he became virulently opposed to the Jewish state of Israel.
In a 2014 article for the Toronto Star, Maté wrote, ‘The Palestinians use tunnels? So did my heroes, the poorly armed fighters of the Warsaw Ghetto.’
‘Out of impotent defiance, they fire inept rockets, causing terror for innocent Israelis but rarely physical harm,’ he wrote, defending Palestinian rocket fire at citizens of Israel.
During the most recent conflict between Israel and Gaza in spring of 2021, Maté said during a livestream that Hamas was ‘nothing compared to the terrorism of the Israeli government.’
He also appeared on comedian-turned-public intellectual Russell Brand’s podcast to say that Israel is ‘the longest ethnic-cleansing operation in the 20th and 21st centuries. It’s still going on.’
He further described Gaza as ‘the world’s largest outdoor prison.’
He has previously elaborated on his journey from being a Zionist and recognizing the desire for a Jewish state in the wake of the Holocaust to an extremely vocal critic of the ‘colonial’ and ‘cruel’ modern state.
In 2019, Maté defended disgraced former British Labour Leader Jeremy Corbyn, who has been accused of antisemitism. He called it ‘manipulative’ to call Corbyn an antisemite.
‘So, Corbyn goes to this rally where this Jewish person speaks, and Corbyn’s accused of being an antisemite because he’s present when a Jew criticizes or points out similarities between the ghettoisation of Gaza and the ghettoisation of Jews,’ he said.
He added that he believed Corbyn had been the victim of a ‘witch hunt’ and ‘Israeli assassination.’

Also during the recent conflict, Maté praised Grayzone – a far-left, pro-Kremllin news outlet – founder Max Blumenthal’s statement that ‘[Israelis] grow up under a certain ideological framework in which the Arab is less than human.’
Rabbi Cooper said that Maté is a ‘Holocaust survivor whose worldview sets him apart from 99 per cent of world Jewry.’
‘I am working under the assumption that the Prince did not know this person’s political bias, his hatred for the Jewish state, his cavorting with antisemites and his covering for Hamas terrorists.’
