Rachel Abrams says Palestinian children are ‘devils’ spawn’– while Israeli children play with Transformers and draw your heart strings

on 67 Comments

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.

    Publicize this amazing statement widely, especially among USA Jews, who may (if knocked on the head hard enough) recognize racism at play when they read it and (if necessary) re-evaluate their own feelings and thoughts and political activities.

      I was about to post addressing the mods and asking them if a poster had uttered such inhuman bile whether they would deem it unacceptable and ban it.

      Yet this disgusting pediaphobia is published here as a streaming quotable.

      Aaaahhh the weird twisted dance between the self-styled polemicists and the media.

        Comments like those of Rachel Abrams should never be banned. This pure, unadulterated racism and hate needs to be publicized far and wide for the whole world to see. Abrams and eee and their ilk perform a very valuable service. They expose Zionism for what it truly is.

        Speaking of our delightful little eee, when is he going to finally show up on this thread? I can’t wait to see how the person who supports the torture of Palestinian children explains this one. I think it will go something like this: Palestinians hate Jews and want to throw them into the sea, so why shouldn’t we throw them into the sea first? How is it immoral to torture the children and people who want to kill you and who deny your right to exist? Did you complain when the United States dropped nuclear bombs on Japan? Rachel Abrams’s uncle/brother/fifth cousin twice removed/pet hamster knew someone whose daughter/cousin/chihuahua rode a bus in Tel Aviv once, and Palestinians blew up buses during the Second Intifada. Her feelings towards Palestinians are thus understandable and human. If you think she is a racist, you are an anti-Semite. Just you wait until you have to live through an intifada, you silly naive Americans!

        End scene.

    Ah yes, the unvarnished truth about what absolute and utter SCUM is about to be reinstalled in our nation’s capital as the driving force behind our foreign policies.

    You read stuff like this, and you doubt that such people were capable, are capable, of the kind of epic hoax we were subjected to on 9/11/01?

    You doubt they will dare risk global nuclear holocaust in their fanatical zeal to do what they perceive as God’s bidding?

    These people are a faaaaar greater risk to us than Iran or Iraq ever dreamed of being. These people DO have access to nuclear weapons, and all manner of WMDs, when they acquire the ear of our nation’s so-called “leaders”.

    Bachman??? Perry??? Palin??? Cain???? Do you honestly believe they reject the racist and satanical rantings of this craven she-devil Abrams???

    Why this massive psycho mixes God with all her/his hatefull, psychotic rambling.
    God said clearly: ” Thou shall not murder.
    Thou shall not steal.
    Do unto others as you would have them do unto you”.
    It is still obligatory for ALL the people as far as I know.
    And if they do consider themselves the “Chosen People”, they should lead by example. A good one.

    Surely this is someone masquerading as Elliot Abrams’s wife, or someone happening to share the name?!

    Imagine the furor if the spouse of a prominent American supporter of Palestinians said anything remotely as hate-filled. (Recall the response to Hillary greeting Suha Arafat with a traditional peck on the cheek.)

    This should serve as a reminder that even if routine Israeli crimes are getting somewhat more attention and even if the mainstream press is daring to voice something that might approach criticism of Israel, the atmosphere in the US is still such that people like this can spew language perfectly recognizable in an entirely different, far worse time and place.

    After following this conflict for 30 years, Rachel’s comment might be the most shocking I’ve ever read.

    To think that she is the soul mate of a man who’s been deeply influential in both Israel and the United States during that time is deeply disturbing.

    Hopefully her comment will receive wide publicity – and we’ll remember it and quote it whenever the subject of hate comes up in connection with the conflict.

      Do you honestly think that other Zionists aren’t lapping up her every word and wishing they could be as “audacious”? Zionism is racist at its core.

      I’ve read many comments just like hers on Huffington which surprisingly make it through moderation there all the time. Genocidal comments against Palestinians are becoming much more prevalent in so-called “civil” discourse. But try posting “Zionist” in a sentence; it may or may not show up.

    I mean, after all, this woman slithers and feeds in the same snake den that the neo-con/zionist faction in Washington DC resides in. Her compatriots advocate for the same policies and actions that the Mondozios advocate for, here, on a daily basis.

    It would be interesting to see if eee, or Dimatok, or DBG, or Hophni are PROUD to have this woman as an ideological ally.

    Who can doubt that Hophni or eee may well employ similiar semantics when seated with those of sympathetic and parallel ideologies?

This is clearly hatespeech of the kind that is very explicitly forbidden in the content policy. She’s breaking the Blogger terms of use with this blog, and as such runs the risk of them shutting it down when they catch on.

    On a positive note, she may have titled her blog in the only lucid moment she has ever had.
