In case you didn’t already figure out that Electronic Intifada founder Ali “Abumination” Abunimah was an antisemite, he keeps sending out reminders.
As a reminder, “Drawing comparisons of contemporary Israeli policy to that of the Nazis” falls under the IHRA working definition of antisemitism.
But what Abunimah has done here goes beyond; he has actually compared Hamas terrorists to Jewish Holocaust victims.
I am sure he will argue he was not making such a comparison, and merely calling them “ghetto” inmates because they are enclosed in Gaza. Alas, his wording is clearly no mistake and he was undoubtedly drawing a parallel to the most infamous ghetto in history, especially when commenting on a Holocaust gathering with the very same tweet.
Not that we should be surprised. Abunimah is a known terrorist supporter who hearts Hamas.
Here’s hoping he and them end up together in the dustbin of history.
