Israel-Hatred Makes For Strange Bedfellows*, Exhibit A
Anti-Israel propaganda site Quds News Network recently posted this defiant-if-not-dreery message by an Israel-hater arrested for vandalizing a building:
The funny thing is that Quds News Network being Hamas-affiliated, they would support throwing “Torch” from the building. Or, ehh, torching them.
Torch was not so defiant earlier on.
Winters, a sociology student at Brighton University, told the court they had found being arrested very distressing, and had cried so much during their 36 hours in the police cells their nose had started bleeding.
Torch is also one pronoun short of a woke description:
Prosecuting, Dominic Dudkowski said Winters, 19, was a member of Palestine Action, who had been targeting sites connected to the Israeli-owned arms manufacturer Elbit.
But, he said, there was no evidence Elbit had any connection to Sovereign House.
He said JLL had become a target of Palestine Action because a London building they manage is used by Elbit Systems.
However, he said JLL is not the landlord, and has no power to evict the company.
He said JLL had been managing Sovereign House on behalf of its owner when it was targeted.
By the way, I know what some of you are thinking. But Torch does not want you to judge them by their appearance.
When Mr Dudkowski asked them why they had been clad entirely in black, including a mask, they accused him of profiling – i.e. making judgements about someone based on their appearance.
I suggest Torch go visit Gaza wearing their hot pink jacket. They don’t just act as judges over there, but also as juries and executioners.
*Can I get cancelled for saying bedfellows?
