Washington Post’s Jennifer Rubin promotes call for Palestinian genocide

Max Blumenthal 

In a blog post cheering the release of the captured Israeli soldier Gilad Shalit, neoconservative activist Rachel Decter Abrams descended into a twisted call for genocide, calling for Israel to throw released Palestinian prisoners whom she described as “child sacrificing savages” and “unmanned animals” — along with “their offspring” — “into the sea, to float there, food for sharks.”

Abrams is the half-sister of Commentary editor John Podhoretz, the wife of Iran-Contra felon and former Assistant Secretary of State Elliot Abrams, and the daughter of Midge Decter and step daughter of neocon founding father Norman Podhoretz. She is also a board member of the right-wing Emergency Committee for Israel, which recently produced baseless ads claiming the Occupy Wall Street movement is anti-Semitic.

The Washington Post’s neoconservative “Right Turn” blogger Jennifer Rubin is one of Abrams’ closest allies in the media. As soon as Abrams tweeted out a link to her exterminationist blog post, Rubin — whose Twitter account is “JRubinBlogger” — retweeted it to her followers, clearly approving of its content. Indeed, Rubin is not known for using Twitter to simply curate news and opinions.

Here is a screenshot of Rubin’s retweet of Abrams’ call for mass murder:

In July 2010, the veteran CNN correspondent Octavia Nasr was fired for writing on Twitter that she was “sad” to hear of the death of Grand Ayatollah Mohammed Hussein Fadlallah, a figure instrumental in the foundation of Hezbollah whom she said she “respect[ed] a lot.” Despite apologizing and explaining that she merely admired Fadlallah’s strong stance against honor killings and support for women’s rights, CNN heeded calls from pro-Israel groups for her termination.

An Ottawa-based diplomat from the Palestinian Authority, Linda Sobeh Ali, was reassigned by the Canadian government last week after she retweeted a link to a Youtube video that included a call for a war “against the soul of Zionism.” Pro-Israel groups in Canada were responsible for bringing the retweet to the government’s attention, and for pressuring it to act.

In the case of Nasr, CNN took full responsibility for what she wrote and promoted on her personal Twitter account. The news organization saw her tweet as a reflection on its reputation and credibility, and took action. The Washington Post has done nothing, however, about Rubin’s approving promotion of her friend’s call for genocide.

Does the Washington Post have a policy on the promotion of mass murder by its staffers? It is up to Post Ombudsman Patrick Pexton to explain if Rubin’s act was permissible according to his paper’s ethical guidelines, and if so, why.

    Did you ever notice that Jews look uglier when they smile ?

    Her comment is SICK! Talk about Anti-Semitism! What a hateful psychotic thing to say or think about other people dying that way. Is this not a thought crime? To even think such a thought is great proof of the evil vein in these people. Will she lose her job over this?

    Odious looking creature … reflection of her odious persona. And part of one of the worst families on the planet… which is saying something.

    Hateful is actually a mild description of her and her sentiments.

    Up here in Canada politicians are heavily punished for the mildest pro Palestine comments. We had a woman last year who was set up a la Helen Thomas only even milder a comment. The PM wanted her sacked for her pro Palestinian stance.Huge media fuss. Poor Jews again…

    I could see Harper’s Chabad buddies giggling behind their scuzzy dirty beards as they told him what to say and do….

    American is run by these same Chabad nasties…

    Any one could not overlook the close knit circle of Jews in seats of power and influence here.
    Again, as always we see the hypocritical double standard that applies to the “Cho Zin”; and, as contrasted, to the “Goy”.

    Yes,and do you also understand WHY that is the case?Well what are smiles actually supposed to express?Is it not happiness and friendliness?But if you are fundamentally wicked in your soul you can neither be happy nor friendly.So if you still want to force a smile on your face it will produce an entirely artificial grimace making you even more ugly than you already are.That is why!

    I feel a need to quote the immortal words of General Patton on talking about the Diplaced Persons(Jews) after WWII:
    “Furthermore, it is against my Anglo-Saxon conscience to remove a person from a house, which is a
    punishment, without due process of law. In the second place, Harrison and his ilk believe that the
    Displaced Person is a human being, which he is not, and this applies particularly to the Jews, who are lower than animals.”
    Remember, these Jewish women are from THIS tribe.
    Thanks to General Patton for keeping things in perspective. 🙂

    so what this article tells us is that this is how this family & ‘close’ friends talk in their comfort zone. Didn’t I read just yesterday that a reporter from The Guardian had to apologize for printing her piece about the Shalit = 1,027 Palestinians, and she noted something about the ‘chosen’ & she was coerced into apologizing for telling the truth, which as we often notice is anti semitic.

    My memory fails me, I can’t remember if she paid with her job or not. Speaking for me tho, I get tired of all the self censoring I do b/c the truth can be bitter, ugly, and voila, anti semitic.

    It`s called keeping it in the family, everything, even sheer hate, and blatant racism, is inherent..

    wonder how long they can keep locking us up, or trying to shut us up?

    I’m angry so much of the time now. I realize if we want to beat things/people like this it’s important to not allow them to make us angry. Okay. Just got to re-focus completely. I’m through with mainstream media of all stripes. Never going to a Hollywood movie again. I would in all honesty, (and it would probably bring me great joy at the moment) love to smash the tv in my house with a sledgehammer, except it’s my roommate’s glass teat. Prepare to begin using obscure black and white print newsletters when the internet goes, LOL. Got to pull the tonnage punches with these people.

    Facism is alive and growing day by day within Israel and its supporters abroad. It pains me to say this, but I would not want to be Jewish in America in five years or so. When Americans finally figure out, as they surely will, what Israel and Zionism truly are and the massive harm it has done to their country they are going to be mad, real mad. It is imperative than those Jews who do not support Israel’s mad dog policies step forth and forthrightly condemn them and divorce themselves from Zionism, a 19th century racist, neo-colonialist ideology headed for the scrap heap of history.

    Well considering she has ties to this man –

    it comes as no surprise that she would call for an overabundance of organs to harvest. It’s what they do.

    It’s now official – there’s been no actual shortage of Holocaust Survivors :

    Quote from The Holocaust Industry by Norman G. Finkelstein of the City University of New York, published by Verso in the year 2000:
    ‘The Israeli Prime Minister’s office recently put the number of “living Holocaust survivors” at nearly a million.’ (page 83)

    I’ve checked out the six volumes of Churchill’s Second World War and the statement is quite correct – not a single mention of Nazi ‘gas chambers,’ a ‘genocide’ of the Jews, or of ‘six million’ Jewish victims of the war.

    Eisenhower’s Crusade in Europe is a book of 559 pages; Churchill’s Second World War totals 4,448 pages; and De Gaulle’s three-volume Mémoires de guerre is 2,054 pages.

    In this mass of writing, which altogether totals 7,061 pages (not including the introductory parts), published from 1948 to 1959, one will find no mention either of Nazi ‘gas chambers,’ a ‘genocide’ of the Jews, or of ‘six million’ Jewish victims of the war.

    Dirty Little Secrets – the hidden, awkward origins of World War 2 – the unexpected views of four key diplomats who were close to events

    Just consider the following:

    · Joseph P. Kennedy, U.S. Ambassador to Britain during the years immediately preceding WW2 was the father of the famous American Kennedy dynasty. James Forrestal the first US Secretary of Defense (1947-1949) quotes him as saying “Chamberlain (the British Prime Minister) stated that America and the world Jews had forced England into the war”. (The Forrestal Diaries ed. Millis, Cassell 1952 p129).

    · Count Jerzy Potocki, the Polish Ambassador in Washington, in a report to the Polish Foreign Office in January 1939, is quoted approvingly by the highly respected British military historian Major-General JFC Fuller. Concerning public opinion in America he says “Above all, propaganda here is entirely in Jewish hands…when bearing public ignorance in mind, their propaganda is so effective that people have no real knowledge of the true state of affairs in Europe… It is interesting to observe that in this carefully thought-out campaign… no reference at all is made to Soviet Russia. If that country is mentioned, it is referred to in a friendly manner and people are given the impression that Soviet Russia is part of the democratic group of countries… Jewry was able not only to establish a dangerous centre in the New World for the dissemination of hatred and enmity, but it also succeeded in dividing the world into two warlike camps…President Roosevelt has been given the power.. to create huge reserves in armaments for a future war which the Jews are deliberately heading for.” (Fuller, JFC: The Decisive Battles of the Western World vol 3 pp 372-374.)

    · Hugh Wilson, the American Ambassador in Berlin until 1938, the year before the war broke out, found anti-Semitism in Germany ‘understandable’. This was because before the advent of the Nazis, “the stage, the press, medicine and law [were] crowded with Jews…among the few with money to splurge, a high proportion [were] Jews…the leaders of the Bolshevist movement in Russia, a movement desperately feared in Germany, were Jews. One could feel the spreading resentment and hatred.” (Hugh Wilson: Diplomat between the Wars, Longmans 1941, quoted in Leonard Mosley, Lindbergh, Hodder 1976).

    · Sir Nevile Henderson, British Ambassador in Berlin ‘said further that the hostile attitude in Great Britain was the work of Jews and enemies of the Nazis, which was what Hitler thought himself’ (Taylor, AJP: The Origins of the Second World War Penguin 1965, 1987 etc p 324).

    The employer practice of firing employees because of expressing political beliefs, as in the case of Octavia Nasr, has brought a chilling effect on freedom of speech in America. However, Zionist like Jennifer Rubin can express her hateful vitriol and be insulated from such action- even when she calls for Palestinian genocide. The double standard is evident and it speaks volumes about the Zionist control of the mainstream media in America.

    Allright, I’ve done some serious thinking. I’m not going to get angry about these things anymore. I’m aware of a lot more now, but I have better ways to use my time and energy. Positively!

    wow, what a ghoul. Imagine people like this determining the fate of others. No surprise the aftermath of the “Jewish Experiment” in Russia resulted in ~66,000,000 lives lost.

    The cruelty knew no limits.
