Skip to comments.One Loud Jew Sends Media Spinning
Posted on 08/30/2010 8:48:12 AM PDT by Mobile Vulgus
The newest faux outrage comes from the mouth of controversial Jewish Rabbi Ovadia Yousef. In a sermon from Israel, Rabi Yousef as much as called for God to commit genocide against the so-called Palestinians. I say "as much as" because he didn't actually call for genocide, but he came awfully close for comfort. In fact, even as he didn't say it explicitly its hard not to see it being implied.
"Abu Mazen and all these evil people should perish from this earth," said Rabbi Yosef, head of the Israeli Shas party. "God should strike them and these Palestinians -- evil haters of Israel -- with a plague," he added.
Naturally, the Palestinians are outraged and Reuters, the Associated Press, and other news outlets are playing the story for all its worth. By Monday it'll likely be everywhere....

Maybe the media thinks the Jews are better than that. The Palestinians and their kind are always saying stuff like that, so it’s nothing new.
I am unaware that anything he said was foolish. He’s quite right. Perhaps ill-timed and impolite, but correct.
(And no, I am not Jewish.)
Not daily. Hourly, or maybe even minute by minute. Pali’s are a media protected class.
Ovadia Yousef has obviously not read the rules on politically correct speech.
It is against those rules to wish that God would destroy evildoers.
He doesn’t- like Islam- ask or command his followers to do anyone harm, he wishes God will do what both Jews and Christians- and maybe even Muslims- hold as God’s righteous decision to destroy evil- as in Sodom and Gomorrah.
I guess the debate then turns on whether the Jihadist barbarians are evil. Oh, now I’m violating 21th Century politically correct rules- never call evil evil if Islam is involved.
The “palestinians” are outraged....naturally...
I think what amazes me more than anything is the blatant, bald-faced, jumping-up-and-down, neon-lit, screaming and in your face, hypocrisy and double standards. And not a ONE of them on the left or in these middle eastern third world toilets has the tiniest scrap of embarassment.
How many times a day do you wonder if you have dropped down a rabbit hole?
Yeah, it's strange how the Palestinians get a pass - and the Jews NEVER do... makes one wonder...
Oh - and conservative Americans never get a pass either - just liberals. Connections... must stay on the surface...
Is that why liberals get a pass and conservatives don’t? One standard for the MSM’s “teachers’ pets” and one for the rest of us? Eff ‘em. Eff the MSM.
‘Oops, did that come out of my mouth?’
Not really sure where he said anything wrong.
The Religion of Islam must be exterminated by any means necessary.
Palestinans? Heck, I’ve heard worse from Libs about Beck, Rush, and Palin.
So the headchoppers are “offended”?
That is hilarious...is this satire?
From what I read in the Bible of what will happen to anyone who comes against Israel the Rabbi is letting them off rather lightly.
Nice edit job of my post.
Oh no! Sorry ThirdRuffian...I was not responding to you at all, but to the Pals..I understood your post completely, and should not have edited that sentence.
Very bad form, please forgive me.
I wonder how many critics have read the Psalms?
There are psalms called the" Imprecatory psalms" are those those psalms that contain curses or prayers for the punishment of the psalmist's enemies. To imprecate means to invoke evil upon, or curse. Psalms 7, 35, 55, 58, 59, 69, 79, 109, 137 and 139 all contain prayers for God's judgment on the psalmist's enemies. Example imprecatory statements from the Psalms follow:
Psalm 55:15 - Let death take my enemies by surprise; let them go down alive to the grave.
Psalm 58:6 - O God, break the teeth in their mouths.
Psalm 69:28 - May they be blotted out of the book of life and not be listed with the righteous.
Psalm 109:9 - May his children be fatherless and his wife a widow.
Psalm 137:9 - How blessed will be the one who seizes your infants and dashes them against the rocks.
Seems to me the Rabbi was on solid scriptural grounds
