Words fail me. Whenever you think the Israel-haters and those who would boycott us and want to destroy us, including the BDS movement and its fellow-travellers, could not sink any lower, they start to dig.
The following Facebook post (referenced in the above Times of Israel article), posted by Shamir Rabinovitch, the father of the 13-year old girl who is the subject of this article, speaks for itself.
Here is the translation of Shamir’s introductory words in Hebrew:
The BDS movement is here. Shachar reached out to a lecture (Jewish!) in Cambridge regarding horses, and she received an answer that despite the fact that she is so young she needs to understand that the lecturer does not help Israelis as long as there is an occupation and all that well-known bla bla bla of those self-righteous people (just say already that you want us to die and it would be more elegant). This is the reaction of this trickster, which incredibly was sent to a 13 year old girl, who has not yet manage to kill anyone and davka quite supports world peace and brotherhood.
The following tweet by David Collier preserves the Facebook post in a screenshot in case it is ever removed:
The story has gone viral all over the Jewish and Israeli media. Here are some Facebook reactions:
An enterprising reader wrote to Cambridge to complain:
The reader got a quick reply! Denial and distancing is the name of the game. Good!
But the story gets worse!! As I said earlier, just when you think BDS can’t get any worse, they dig themselves in further.
The Jewish Chronicle contacted Marsha Levine for a reaction to the uproar she has instigated – and she justified her revolting answer to Shachar by saying the Israelis are the new Nazis!: (h/t Marcus Dysch):
Contacted by the JC on Tuesday, the American former academic defended her response.
She said: “I didn’t ask her to email me. I don’t know how she got my email address. I can do whatever I want. I didn’t invite her to email me. If she wanted to read anything I had written she could find it on the internet.
“I made the decision that I have the choice not to waste my time on people who tread on the rights of other people. I didn’t do anything to her. I said that when there is justice for Palestine I will answer her – that’s a fair answer. I’m a signatory to Jews for Justice for Palestinians and I sent her a link. I did it as a matter of conscience. The way Israel treats Palestinians is totally disgusting.”
Dr Levine said she wanted Miss Rabinovitch to stand up to violence when she grows up.
“The violence against Palestinians never stops”, the Cambridge-based former academic said. “The people who live in Gaza cannot get education, health, water. What does it say about Jews that they support that? Jews have turned themselves into monsters.
“I want this girl not to worry about horses. I don’t need people emailing me. I’m not an academic anymore. My research was all in the past. I’m doing other things now. I don’t see any obligation to further her ego or make her feel better about herself. I don’t think it’s about her – I think it’s about her parents.
“I gave her useful information which might help her for the rest of her life. I have to stand up for what I believe in.
“Benjamin Netanyahu wants ethnic cleansing. The Jews have become the Nazis. Jews are behaving just like the people who treated them. It’s not all Israelis or all Jews.
Our old sages had a saying: השנאה מקלקלת את השורה- which roughly translated means “hatred destroys clear thinking”. Never has an aphorism been truer or more apposite than in this case. This woman should be ejected and rejected from all free-thinking and freedom-loving society.
