Ali Abunimah is the founder of Electronic Intifada, and contributor for the Guardian, Huffington Post, and New York Times when these progressive voices need a “moderate” Palestinian-perspective op-ed. Abunimah, it should be known, doesn’t believe Israel has the right to exist, and has suggested that Israel’s actions in Gaza are similar to the Nazi massacre in the Warsaw Ghetto.
Here are his responses via Twitter to the cold-blooded execution-style murder of four Jews earlier this evening, two of them women and one pregnant:
Civilian deaths are always tragic. Israel must stop using civilian settlers as human shields for the land it is stealing
And it is indeed tragic Israel cynically uses Jewish civilians including kids as human shields for expropriated land.
And, just for clarity, he notes:
that’s my view on this attack too if you need me to grind the point. Is that still unclear?
No Ali, I think we’re all quite clear on your views.
