Despicable Reactions To Orlando Terror Attack By Jew Haters And Israel Haters

1805

omar mateenMy welcoming back to the online world (after two days offline celebrating the Jewish Sabbath and festival of Shavuot) did not go exactly according to plan, as I was greeted with news of the barbaric terror attack in Orlando, which claimed the lives of 50 people and wounding over 50 more.

My initial reactions were of course of sadness and pain, thinking of the families and friends of the innocent victims of this murderous rampage.

There was also the anger and frustration at the propensity of so many to immediately try to distance such acts from the faith of the perpetrator, even going so far as to sympathize with his co-coreligionists almost as much as his victims! And while it is clear to me and all reasonable people that not all Muslims are vicious murderers (an offensive, patently false suggestion), there is a sizable number who are, fueled by a fundamentalist doctrine. I have dealt with this before, based on actual data taken from Pew Survey results.



I am comfortable admitting I am not knowledgeable enough about the Quran to know whether this represents strict doctrine of Islam – I suspect not, since I know plenty of devout Muslims who are appalled at this kind of act. But when you have potentially hundreds of millions of people worldwide who might be ok with it, then that is a huge worry.

What else is a huge worry are the types of reactions we are seeing from so many on social media.

At this time of this post, the below Facebook postings on the palestinian Shehab News have thousands of Likes and “Haha”s. As you can imagine, most of the comments are repulsive. Click on the posts to see for yourself (there is a See Translation option for all of them).

Then there’s these tweets by antisemite and Holocaust denier Alison Chabloz, who has slipped into her default mode – conspiracy theory and antisemitism.

Let’s not forget the Israel haters who are trying to appropriate the tragedy for their cause, or otherwise make offensive comparisons that do not exist.
