Controversial English media personality Katie Hopkins was recently in Israel to screen the premiere of her film, Homelands – an event whose venue was moved multiple times due to pressure from those who call her and the film “Islamophobic.”
While she was here, i24 News interviewed her and tweeted this snippet:

Note how the interviewers both gave her a hard time when she said “there will never be peace in Israel until you remove the people who don’t belong there.” Not only that, but one of them even referred to the palestinian Arabs as “indigenous people” (a point I would vehemently dispute). Whether or not you agree with her or them, I’d posit this is the point of interviewing a controversial figure – to find out more about them, even if you do not agree with them, and question them vigorously on their views.
Because his entire purpose, his reason for being, is to demonize Israel and the Jewish people.
Hopkins also used her i24 News appearance to claim that Muslims are “forcing the Jews out of western Europe,” as well as her “own population.”
And in perhaps one of her only credible statements – politically speaking at least – she called Israel her “natural home.”
She has previously referred to migrants in Europe as “cockroaches.”
Hopkins was perhaps channeling Rafael Eitan, the army chief who commanded Israel’s 1982 invasion of Lebanon and once notoriously called Palestinians “drugged cockroaches in a bottle.”
Using Abumination’s own logic, every time he has reported a statement by Hamas or a terror organization, he is endorsing their message.
Not that we haven’t heard it straight from the horse’s elk’s mouth.
