Apologists for the Israeli government – justify this [WARNING: Distressing content]

This is for people who defend the claims of anti-Semitism against those who criticise the Israeli government’s treatment of Palestinians.

First, read this:

Now consider the contents of the following video clip:


You just saw the moment Palestinian child Ahmad Abu Tyour was shot and critically injured by Israeli snipers at the Gaza border on Friday. He succumbed to his wounds on Saturday and has been pronounced dead.

If you think the footage was faked, read:

A Palestinian teen died of his wounds yesterday a day after he was shot by Israeli troops during a protest on the Gaza border, the enclave’s health ministry said.

Ahmad Abu Tayoor, 17, was shot late Friday on the border close to the southern city of Rafah, the ministry said.


It is considered anti-Semitic to hold Israel to standards that would not be expected of any other country.

But this teenage boy was shot in the leg – ultimately murdered – for throwing a stone.

No member of any country’s armed forces should be allowed to claim it is reasonable to shoot a minor dead for throwing a stone.

This looks like a racist attack on a member of a different culture, to me.

I await – and I hope you do too – the Israeli government’s excuse.
