Why was this deleted?

I’ve read this comment three times over from the Steve Bell thread earlier this week and for the life of me cannot figure out why it was deleted.


This comment doesn’t even express a pro-Israel position but is somewhat neutral in its commentary which goes to show just how radical the Guardian moderation team is.

I can only surmise that the Guardian moderators are so far out of touch with reality that they truly believe that there is moral equivalency between Israel’s security services and Jihadist mass murderers and the suggestion of anything to the contrary is verboten.
Contrast this with an example of an undeleted comment in the same thread that engages in classic Jewish conspiracy theory under the thinly veiled  euphemisms of “Zionist” and “neocon”:

But what else can one expect when Peter Preston, a veteran Guardian editor, echoes JRuskin’s sentiments above the line with this article last year?
