As Deebo posted yesterday, the murder of the Henkins brought out some of the nastiest scum and villainy on social media.
Unfortunately, there was more from where that came.
Specimen A: Joe Catron, whose hatred for Israel knows no bounds as I have shown before.
If a Sayeret Matkal officer in occupied Palestinian territory is a "civilian," then I'm prime minister of Israel. https://t.co/rY2zpxwACk

So beyond the pale was that tweet that even HRW’s Sarah Leah Whitson – no friend of Israel – took issue with it.
No doubt his wife was guilty by association? A new brand of international law you've created? https://t.co/UhM5BOVIhc

Specimen B: Free Gaza (I believe Greta Berlin may run the account)
@jncatron They were NOT civilians. None of the illegal squatters are civilians.

Specimen C: Some Jewish sounding woman who loves animals, but not Jews
@jncatron Convenient blurring of the line to serve Hasbara needs.

There are hundreds more such tweets, but I do not have the stomach to wade through more of the excrement.
