Rachel Abrams wrote the following on her blog concerning the return of Gilad Shalit:
Then round up his captors, the slaughtering, death-worshiping, innocent-butchering, child-sacrificing savages who dip their hands in blood and use women—those who aren’t strapping bombs to their own devils’ spawn and sending them out to meet their seventy-two virgins by taking the lives of the school-bus-riding, heart-drawing, Transformer-doodling, homework-losing children of Others—and their offspring—those who haven’t already been pimped out by their mothers to the murder god—as shields, hiding behind their burkas and cradles like the unmanned animals they are, and throw them not into your prisons, where they can bide until they’re traded by the thousands for another child of Israel, but into the sea, to float there, food for sharks, stargazers, and whatever other oceanic carnivores God has put there for the purpose.
If you don’t feel like reading all of that, it boils down to this: We should feed the militants that captured and held captive Shalit… to the sharks.
As I noted before, I’m personally OK with this as long as the sharks have laser beams attached to their heads (every creature deserves a warm meal).
But the comments have set off a verbal war between the Emergency Committee for Israel and J Street. Basically, J Street denounced Abrams’s post as an “unhinged rant filled with incitement and hate speech.” They then called for ECI to renounce its ties with Abrams, who currently sits on the board of ECI.
But what do you think? If you have something short, feel free write it in the comments. If you have something longer that you would like to be its own post, send it to Noa@gatherdc.org
