On the Times of Israel article “When Genocide is Permissible”

(Vox full text of deleted article)

The English-language Israeli publication Times of Israel today published, and then quickly deleted, a blog post by the writer Yochanan Gordon with the extremely inflammatory headline “When Genocide is Permissible.” The post does not explicitly endorse the genocide of Palestinians, but it asks if doing so would be morally justified after building up the case it would be and presenting only evidence in the affirmative.

‘Disgustingly Biased’ – The Corporate Media On The Gaza Massacre

24 July 2014 — Media Lens

Soon after Malaysian Airlines MH17 crashed near Donetsk, Ukraine on July 18, killing 298 people, the BBC website quickly, and rightly, set up a ‘LIVE’ feed with rolling reports and commentary on the disaster. This was clearly an important and dramatic event involving horrific loss of life with serious political implications. The public would, of course, be searching for the latest news.

Israeli soldier posts picture of Palestine child in the cross hairs

21 July 2014 — New Power

idf-soldier-child-in-crosshair-instagram-300x300An image is worth a thousand words. An Israeli soldier caused a public outcry when he posted an image of a Palestinian child in the cross hairs of his sniper rifle to Instagram. Such is the brutality of racism, genocide, imperialism. Not only are the imperialists brutal, but they are so arrogant that they don’t even have the common sense to self censor their acts of terror. They are sure that the imperialists have their back so they do not even bother hiding their brutality. Genocide bought and paid by the USA. Israel could not survive without the billions it receives every year in military aid from the USA.
