The warped Tweets of Ali Abunimah: Burgas terror attack conspiracy edition

Ali Abunimah – contributor to ‘Comment is Free’ from 2006 to 2009,  co-founder of Electronic Intifada and an anti-Zionist activist who opposes the existence of the Jewish state within any borders – blocks me from seeing his Tweets.

Nonetheless, the wonderful world of the web allowed me to locate one of his recent conspiratorial – and simply unhinged – Tweets about the terrorist attack in Bulgaria which killed 5 Israelis.

Interestingly, the above Tweet pales in comparison to the following, which he Tweeted in 2010.

A glowing profile of Abunimah in the Jewish Forward, published in March, claimed that “Abunimah said he doesn’t support violence against civilians, and in fact he speaks out frequently against anti-Semitism“. [emphasis added]

Of course: when Abunimah’s not suggesting that Jews who support Israel are, in effect, promoting the moral equivalent of Nazi genocide, I’m sure he’s downright philo-semitic!
