Ali Abunimah Attacks Sarah Tuttle Singer Of The Times Of Israel

Sarah Tuttle Singer is a young woman originally from the US who made Aliyah to Israel a few years ago. She is in charge of social media at the Times of Israel, and, quite frankly, the main reason that outfit has achieved some success. At least in my humble opinion.

She is also a beautiful writer, as her latest blog post illustrates. In it, she describes a conversation with a palestinian friend of hers in Gaza, in which they both ask after the other’s well being.

Sarah concludes:

And that’s where it starts. Not peace exactly — because “peace” is too broad. My version of peace, and his version of peace, and Bibi’s version, and Haniyeh’s version, and Herzog’s, and Abbas’, and Obama’s, and Cameron’s, and the barista with the dirty laugh’s, and the guy who sells oranges near Damascus Gate’s, and my son’s preschool teacher’s, and my daughter’s best friend’s mother’s sister’s dog’s veterinarian’s, and the car mechanic in Ramallah’s, and the woman who rides the bus to her start-up’s, and the sheikh at the Mount of Olive’s, and the head rabbi at the Har Nof synagogue’s, and YOUR version of peace, too, is probably so, so, SO different.

Because peace is a vague concept — intangible like rainbows and unicorns, or the flicker of a dream… Peace, so broad, so universal in theory, is really so deeply personal, and doesn’t always involve the other side. And sometimes — let’s be real — for some, it involves the annihilation of the other side.

Into the light enters the darkness, or, in this case, Israel hater and serial liar Ali “Abumination” Abunimah, who tweets the following in response to the above heartfelt wish for peace.

Abunimah certainly knows English. So it is fair to assume he knows fully well what he claims Sarah said and what Sarah said are two very different things. Let’s break it down:

Because peace is a vague concept — intangible like rainbows and unicorns, or the flicker of a dream… Peace, so broad, so universal in theory, is really so deeply personal, and doesn’t always involve the other side. And sometimes — let’s be real — for some, it involves the annihilation of the other side.

What Sarah is saying is that for some people, their idea of living in peace involves annihilation of the other side in the conflict.

People like Hamas, whose charter and verbal statements attest to this goal.

The very people Abunimah defends and supports.

Update: Abunimah’s fellow Israel hater David Sheen makes the same claim.

According to this tweet, Sarah’s post did not originally contain the words “for some.” Even if this was case, her entire post makes clear where she stands, and the addition of those words subsequently makes it even clearer. Like Abunimah, Sheen knows he is being dishonest, but does so anyway.
