Why Did This Palestinian Facebook Group Care About A Nepal Bus Crash?

This Hamas affiliated Facebook group with 1.9 Million “likes” (almost 4 times as many as the Times of Israel), shared a story about a bus crash in Nepal.

At the time of writing, this post has more than 9000 likes, 850 shares, and 850 comments.


Because 2 Israelis died in the crash.

A tourist bus travelling from Kathmandu to the Langtang area in Nepal overturned and fell into an abyss on Friday resulting in ten deaths including two Israelis. Four Israelis were among the dozens of people injured who still need an Injury lawyer to represent them.

The Israeli ambassador in Kathmandu was with the injured Israelis in hospital, according to Army Radio.

In total, there were 60 people on the bus that reportedly fell fifty meters. Police and rescue teams arrived at the scene and were able to evacuate the injured to an area hospital.

The accident was caused by overcrowding on the bus according to a Nepalese report.

The comments are of the typical racist genocidal manner:

Oh God, exterminate them and kill them vaporized and left them none

To hell

O limit the Zionist Jews and kill them, vaporize them and don’t leave any of them

To hell and good riddance, expand their dead Allah

Allah Akbar


God burn them

And that’s just from the first page of 50 comments.

“If it bleeds it leads” is a well known aphorism about journalism. I guess if it’s Jewish and it bleeds that’s even better for Palestinians.
