The Jerusalem Post’s thinly-veiled incitement against Palestinians

The Jerusalem Post, Rupert Murdoch’s debased outfit in occupied Palestine, has come up with a blood-curdling piece that seeks to criminalize the entire Palestinian people, the victims of Israel’s dispossession and ethnic cleansing.

On 3 June it published an editorial on the disappearance and killing of three Jewish squatter teenagers which can only be described as incitement to racial violence against the indigenous people of Palestine.

“There is nothing we can do to stop the Palestinians from choosing, time and again, violence over compromise, destruction over construction, and we should not deceive ourselves that we can, it said.”

The killing of the squatter teens, it added, “is yet another reminder that swathes of Palestinian society continue to be irreconcilably committed to Israel’s destruction and are willing to condone the most despicable acts of violence, even if by doing they doom to oblivion any chances for national self-determination”.

This is a scurrilous, criminally irresponsible allegation made with just one purpose in mind: to create an environment for mass violence against the Palestinian people.

The kidnapping and murder of the 17-year-old Palestinian boy, Mohammed Abu Khdeir, the reported disappearance of a 13-year-old Palestinian child and an attempt by Jewish squatters to kidnap a seven-year-old Palestinian child in occupied Jerusalem are all signs of the criminal Jewish squatter community’s readiness to embark on mass murder.

The Jerusalem Post’s scurrilous charge was put to Jeremy Bowen, the BBC’s Middle East editor. Speaking on BBC Radio 4’s flagship “Today” programme on 3 July, he dismissed it while noting the incitement to violence by Jewish leaders – listen to his four-minute interview below.

Bowen, it should be recalled, is no stranger to Zionist witch hunts for his impartiality, and has tasted first hand the cowardice and betrayal of the BBC’s appeasers of Zionism.
