More Hate Courtesy of Ali Abunimah: Tweets About Israel ‘Harvesting Children’
by Adam Levick
Ali Abunimah is the co-founder of Electronic Intifada – and occasional ‘Comment is Free’ contributor – who opposes the existence of a Jewish state within any borders.
He had this to say on Twitter yesterday about the reported death of a child in Gaza after three separate terrorist incidents on the Israel-Gaza border, which included the murder – by a Palestinian sniper – of an Israeli Bedouin named Saleh Abu Latif:
Is Israel satisfied yet? Is the soul of a child an adequate price or does it need to harvest more? #gaza
The term “harvest” in the context of a dead Palestinian child was clearly not used randomly, and quite possibly is an allusion to the antisemitic libel that the IDF kills Palestinians to provide the Israeli medical establishment with organs.
Previously, Abunimah – the American-born, Ivy league educated radical whose blog has published extremists such as Ben White, Sonja Karker, and Steven Salaita – has suggested that Zionism represents a unique and immutable evil.
Abunimah – from the safety of his Chicago home – has also Tweeted his support for another violent Palestinian Intifada.
Interestingly, his blog is still included in the Guardian’s ‘useful links’ section of their Israel page. (Open link and scroll down.)
