Anti-Israel DouchebloggerTM Richard Silverstein has posted about last night’s terror attack in Jerusalem in typical fashion.
In today’s heinous terror attack, a Palestinian from Silwan drove his car into the light rail tracks at Ammunition Hillstation, killing a Jewish baby. The loss of such a tender young life is senseless. The mourning of the mother who was pushing her child’s baby carriage rends the heart.
But let us also remember the 500 dead Gazan children and their mothers who were bereft at the loss of the precious lives they brought into the world with such hopes and dreams.
Before the comments come in the thread, let me make clear what I always do in such situations: my post is not a justification of terrorism. It is an admission of reality. If Israeli Jews weren’t stealing Palestinian land, if Israel accepted a compromise agreement, if the world cared about what happens to Palestinians, then they would not need to resort to terrorism. As long as Israel can invade frontline neighbors with impunity and kill Palestinians, Lebanese, and even Syrians in the thousands, terrorism will fester. And let’s not forget that Palestinian terrorism doesn’t happen in a vacuum. Operation Protective Edge was itself a massive terror attack that killed 500 children. That’s state-sponsored terror.
But if you think this is bad, check out the comment from Silverstein’s buddy Greta Berlin.

Excellent article as usual, Richard, BUT I do take issue with your calling this a terrorist attack. It is certainly a murderous attack, but your words reaffirm the vile story book of the Apartheid State of Israel. Why not call the squatter attack on the two girls with the car ‘a terrorist attack.” Both are murderous attacks, one done deliberately by an illegal squatter and one done in retaliation by an occupied Palestinian. Both are horrible.
(Berlin is referring to the running over of two palestinian girls by a hit-and-run Israeli driver, who turned himself in later and claimed he did not “because he feared for his life due to the crowd that had gathered around the injured girls”)
Silverstein’s response to this comment?
Nothing, despite responding to subsequent comments.
We are truly dealing with turds of feather.
