As I was Tweeting last night at Ben Gurion Airport while covering the extremist organized Anti-Zionist provocation known as ‘Air Flotilla 2‘, I came across these Tweets on the Fly2Palestine hash tag. They were so over the top they could have almost been sent by a Zionist troll, or one of those intentionally fake Twitter accounts which parody well-known Twitterers.
This Twitterer is?
Abunimah is the man who The Jewish Forward characterized as a “rock star” in the title of a complimentary profile. Interestingly, The Forward subsequently changed the title to “Lightening Rod of the BDS Movement” but evidently forgot to wipe clean the original title from its Facebook page.
It looks like the Forward’s social media manager isn’t quite on top of things!
Oh, and one last thing. The most risible line from the progressive Jewish paper’s piece on the advocate of the Jewish state’s demise, was this:
[Abunimah] speaks out frequently against anti-Semitism, partly, he says, because he’s often accused of it. Zionism, he claims, is itself form of anti-Semitism — the idea that all Jews should live, and can only be safe, in Israel.
Well, that’s not quite fair. Here’s exactly how he’s framed it.
“supporting Zionism is not atonement for the Holocaust, but its continuation in spirit.”
I simply can’t imagine why he’d be accused of antisemitism.
