The comments beneath the line of Tareq Baconi’s “Only Palestinians can create a new Palestine“, CiF, Sept. 15th, included the requisite number of comments (many of which were deleted) hostile to Israel’s very existence. However, it also included this cheerful exchange among anti-Zionist allies, which has not been deleted.
So, this debate boils down to whether the Jewish state is Genocidal or merely racist, colonialist, expansionist, violent and destructive.
Actually, more than a few Guardian contributors have characterized Israel using the same or similar language, so I guess it’s fair to say that the hateful exchange between KevinYearwood and GenuineLeft would clearly not run afoul of CiF community standards.
