Instead of my usual Photo of the Day, this time I have to share instead the Word of the Night: “scum.”
First CNN correspondent Diana Magnay, reporting from Israel used “scum” in her tweet to describe Israelis cheering the IDF bombing of terror locations. She then deleted it, making a story that was picked up and written about already in many places.

Within seconds it was being retweeted, but I had enough and went to sleep.
This morning I found that the author of “Get lost you Zionist scum”
was not an everyday troll, but a “British-Turkish journalist.”
FYI, dear journalists with obvious limited knowledge
this is scum.
#TurksWhoHateJews or #JournalistSayingScum, all leave a bad odor.
