Eli Clifton reports on Rachel Abrams,wife of Elliott Abrams: “Emergency Committee For Israel Board Member Calls Palestinians ‘Savages,’ ‘Unmanned Animals,’ ‘Food For Sharks’”
Based on Rachel Abrams’s yawp. Be attuned to all the racism here amid the Joycean punctuation:
GILAD!!!!!!!!!! He’s free and he’s home in the bosom of his family and his country. Celebrate, Israel, with all the joyous gratitude that fills your hearts, as we all do along with you. Then round up his captors, the slaughtering, death-worshiping, innocent-butchering, child-sacrificing savages who dip their hands in blood and use women—those who aren’t strapping bombs to their own devils’ spawn and sending them out to meet their seventy-two virgins by taking the lives of the school-bus-riding, heart-drawing, Transformer-doodling, homework-losing children of Others—and their offspring—those who haven’t already been pimped out by their mothers to the murder god—as shields, hiding behind their burkas and cradles like the unmanned animals they are, and throw them not into your prisons, where they can bide until they’re traded by the thousands for another child of Israel, but into the sea, to float there, food for sharks, stargazers, and whatever other oceanic carnivores God has put there for the purpose.
Jewish children doodle with Transformers, charmingly. Palestinian children are “devils spawn.” Rachel Abrams’s husband once wrote that Jews must stand apart from society in every country that they live in except Israel, and Jews who marry non-Jews should be shunned; and you can see these attitudes in the woman who says Yes I said Yes I will Yes to Abrams. Unreconstructed ethnocentrism. In which one Jewish soldier’s life is valued more than thousands of other people’s lives. Or why a dictatorship in Egypt is rationalized, oppressing 83 million people for decades, in the name of Israel’s security. Or why the Iraq war is justified, the destruction of an Arab society, for Israel’s military advantage, till the next war.
