"Genocide Is Permissible" Muses Times Of Israel, Promptly Retracts

Tyler Durden's picture

The Times Of Israel has removed a provocatively-titled blog post after huge blowback, denunciations, and ridicule across social media. The post - "When Genocide Is Permissible" (in full below) - concludes, "Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu clearly stated at the outset of this incursion that his objective is to restore a sustainable quiet for the citizens of Israel. We have already established that it is the responsibility of every government to ensure the safety and security of its people. If political leaders and military experts determine that the only way to achieve its goal of sustaining quiet is through genocide is it then permissible to achieve those responsible goals?" Removal or not, we are sure this will do nothing to endear Israel to the world.

When Genocide Is Permissible (authored by Yochanan Gordon)

Judging by the numbers of casualties on both sides in this almost one-month old war one would be led to the conclusion that Israel has resorted to disproportionate means in fighting a far less- capable enemy. That is as far as what meets the eye. But, it’s now obvious that the US and the UN are completely out of touch with the nature of this foe and are therefore not qualified to dictate or enforce the rules of this war – because when it comes to terror there is much more than meets the eye.


I wasn’t aware of this, but it seems that the nature of warfare has undergone a major shift over the years. Where wars were usually waged to defeat the opposing side, today it seems – and judging by the number of foul calls it would indicate – that today’s wars are fought to a draw. I mean, whoever heard of a timeout in war? An NBA Basketball game allows six timeouts for each team during the course of a game, but last I checked this is a war! We are at war with an enemy whose charter calls for the annihilation of our people. Nothing, then, can be considered disproportionate when we are fighting for our very right to live.


The sad reality is that Israel gets it, but its hands are being tied by world leaders who over the past six years have insisted they are such good friends with the Jewish state, that they know more regarding its interests than even they do. But there’s going to have to come a time where Israel feels threatened enough where it has no other choice but to defy international warnings – because this is life or death.


Most of the reports coming from Gazan officials and leaders since the start of this operation have been either largely exaggerated or patently false. The truth is, it’s not their fault, falsehood and deceit is part of the very fabric of who they are and that will never change. Still however, despite their propensity to lie, when your enemy tells you that they are bent on your destruction you believe them. Similarly, when Khaled Meshal declares that no physical damage to Gaza will dampen their morale or weaken their resolve – they have to be believed. Our sage Gedalia the son of Achikam was given intelligence that Yishmael Ben Nesanyah was plotting to kill him. However, in his piety or rather naiveté Gedalia dismissed the report as a random act of gossip and paid no attention to it. To this day, the day following Rosh Hashana is commemorated as a fast day in the memory of Gedalia who was killed in cold blood on the second day of Rosh Hashana during the meal. They say the definition of insanity is repeating the same mistakes over and over. History is there to teach us lessons and the lesson here is that when your enemy swears to destroy you – you take him seriously.


Hamas has stated forthrightly that it idealizes death as much as Israel celebrates life. What other way then is there to deal with an enemy of this nature other than obliterate them completely?


News anchors such as those from CNN, BBC and Al-Jazeera have not missed an opportunity to point out the majority of innocent civilians who have lost their lives as a result of this war. But anyone who lives with rocket launchers installed or terror tunnels burrowed in or around the vicinity of their home cannot be considered an innocent civilian. If you’ll counter, that Hamas has been seen abusing civilians who have attempted to leave their homes in response to Israeli warnings to leave – well then, your beginning to come to terms with the nature of this enemy which should automatically cause the rules of standard warfare to be suspended.


Everyone agrees that Israel has the right to defend itself as well as the right to exercise that right. Secretary General Ban Ki Moon has declared it, Obama and Kerry have clearly stated that no one could be expected to sit idle as thousands of rockets rain down on the heads of its citizens, placing them in clear and present danger. It seems then that the only point of contention is regarding the measure of punishment meted out in this situation.


I will conclude with a question for all the humanitarians out there. Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu clearly stated at the outset of this incursion that his objective is to restore a sustainable quiet for the citizens of Israel. We have already established that it is the responsibility of every government to ensure the safety and security of its people. If political leaders and military experts determine that the only way to achieve its goal of sustaining quiet is through genocide is it then permissible to achieve those responsible goals?

The author just apologized...

I wish to express deep regret and beg forgiveness for an article I authored which was posted on 5TJT.com, Times of Israel and was tweeted and shared the world over.


I never intended to call to harm any people although my words may have conveyed that message.


With that said I pray and hope for a quick peaceful end to the hostilities and that all people learn to coexist with each other in creating a better world for us all.

He olde "plan Madagascar."

Yeah...like that was going anywhere.

One question people might ask is "why was Poland so anti semetic?" (Let alone Hungary, the Czech lands, Slovakia, Croatia, Serbia, the Ukrainians, etc.). If your answer is "because the NKVD was 70 percent Jewish" then you'll start to see the problem here was a: not surprising (Bolsevism) yet b: really surprising (what is a Soviet again? Not even the Germans understood that one.)

These are very complex issues and talking about them only makes it worse. The problem of course is that the Third Reich has a "loveable loser" question that many a folk refuse to confront (in their "self" or who we truly are as a person.)

Needless to say the verdict of History is clear: Germany is a unified State with a Capital at Berlin. Any questions?

Whatever the rights on either side now, the creation of a Jewish state in the middle of a massively Muslim region, and with the dispossession of Muslims already living in the chosen territory, was never going to work out well.

Can anyone forsee a situation where Israel ever is at peace with its neighbors?

As the BRICS become ever more influential in the world and the gobal economy can anyone imagine them taking on some of that fabricated western "guilt" about Jews and supporting Israel over the hundreds of millions of Muslim customers?

The Jews in Israel, their Arab neighbors, and the US and other western countries are paying a continuing price for the hubris of the Rothschilds in their WWII deal with the Brits to establish Israel as a price for getting the US into the war against Germany.

Is the future of the Jews in Israel going to be any different than that of the whites in Zimbabwe?

The world will choose the jews for all sorts of mischief and mayhem, slaughter eventually. Chosen ones, lol.

messystateofaffairs's picture

I frequently hear the term mischievous used to describe the Jewish population but mass murder is a little more than mischievous.

Genocide is certainly permissible in America, where it is done to white Americans, and in all fairness black Americans and others who are born here.

They are to be replaced by an infinite number of immigrants from around the world.

How tough will you be after the foreign aid is cut off? You will have to stand on your own two feet to budget new war attacks. See, the American people like myself are tired of funding a perpetual war. Time for you to fund it, rather than stealing from US Taxpayers. 

You don't give anything back other than fear. ROI is Zero, just like the USA nigger in chief.

Conclusion, cut off the foreign aid. Let's see how you can coexist with your neighboring community. No funding means that you can't kill more children. 

Let me give you an example, my neighbor is black. He works as a legislator for DC. He is a democratic person and I'm Republican. We coexist. We don't send rockets into each other yards. 

Hell, he is a great guy. He admitted that Obama is breacking down the system for new motives. 

He is just as sick as I am. People are aware of what is happening 

silverstud's picture

I still can't work out how Obama got the Nobel Peace prize - something just does not add up here

In one breath his administration has a verbal go at Israel while, at the same time, replenishing their arms so they can go and fuck over stone wielding Palestinians once again

This is genocide and both Israel and the US are complicit

Based on my posting above, Israelis are the lowest form of animals. If they want to portray the God given species, Act like a god, instead of the extermination of innocent children and families who have no idea about the geopolitics and banking updraft collection. 

I like Jews. But your rat asses will die by the bullet. Sick motherfuckers.

Ha Ha, most ignorant post of the last couple hours, you got my super-dhimmi award man. Right next door in Sryia, stupid islamic snackbarian rats have killled 170,000, but that gets a pass from your hypocritical dumb dhimmi ass.

Rippin heads off of people is A-OK with you eh?


Go get a couple of them and decorate your fence the islamic way!

As ignorant as you are I just know you will be happy that Christians have been wiped from Mosul:


How about lets hear you shout out a big "wholelottasnackbar" to cheer on the murdering islamic snackbarian rats because you love them sooooooooo much! They are so innocent! ha ha what total bullshit.

Here is some real peaceful passages from the koran, you can bow down and pray this holy murdering shit:

Quran (8:12) - "I will cast terror into the hearts of those who disbelieve. Therefore strike off their heads and strike off every fingertip of them"..

Quran (8:57) - "If thou comest on them in the war, deal with them so as to strike fear in those who are behind them, that haply they may remember."  

Quran (8:59-60) - "And let not those who disbelieve suppose that they can outstrip (Allah's Purpose). Lo! they cannot escape.  Make ready for them all thou canst of (armed) force and of horses tethered, that thereby ye may dismay the enemy of Allah and your enemy."


Quran (8:65) - "O Prophet, exhort the believers to fight..."

Quran (9:5) - "So when the sacred months have passed away, then slay the idolaters wherever you find them, and take them captive and besiege them and lie in wait for them in every ambush, then if they repent and keep up prayer and pay the poor-rate, leave their way free to them."

Quran (9:29) - "Fight those who believe not in Allah nor the Last Day, nor hold that forbidden which hath been forbidden by Allah and His Messenger, nor acknowledge the religion of Truth, (even if they are) of the People of the Book, until they pay the Jizya with willing submission, and feel themselves subdued."


Quran (9:30) - "And the Jews say: Ezra is the son of Allah; and the Christians say: The Messiah is the son of Allah; these are the words of their mouths; they imitate the saying of those who disbelieved before; may Allah destroy them; how they are turned away!"

Quran (9:73) - "O Prophet! strive hard against the unbelievers and the hypocrites and be unyielding to them; and their abode is hell, and evil is the destination."


Quran (9:123) - "O you who believe! fight those of the unbelievers who are near to you and let them find in you hardness."


Quran (17:16) - "And when We wish to destroy a town, We send Our commandment to the people of it who lead easy lives, but they transgress therein; thus the word proves true against it, so We destroy it with utter destruction."

Quran (25:52) - "Therefore listen not to the Unbelievers, but strive against them with the utmost strenuousness..."

Quran (33:60-62) - "If the hypocrites, and those in whose hearts is a disease, and the alarmists in the city do not cease, We verily shall urge thee on against them, then they will be your neighbors in it but a little while.  Accursed, they will be seized wherever found and slain with a (fierce) slaughter."

Quran (66:9) - "O Prophet! Strive against the disbelievers and the hypocrites, and be stern with them. Hell will be their home, a hapless journey's end."


Bukhari (52:177) - Allah's Apostle said, "The Hour will not be established until you fight with the Jews, and the stone behind which a Jew will be hiding will say. "O Muslim! There is a Jew hiding behind me, so kill him."


Bukhari (52:256) - The Prophet... was asked whether it was permissible to attack the pagan warriors at night with the probability of exposing their women and children to danger. The Prophet replied, "They (i.e. women and children) are from them (i.e. pagans)."

The hate speech that is the Quran just goes on and on and on. Lots more where that came from. Hey make sure you beat some women and murder a bunch of people, steal their land they were living on for thousands of years before your murdering shit came along. or better yet just FOAD.

One Obscurantist logic meets another.

The race to bottom has NOTHING TO DO WITH RELIGION.

It has everything to do with Economia and THAT issue was made clear since the Crusades. We USE the religious theme to impose our POLITICAL hegemony on the wealth lines of the world (silk, spices, gems then, OIL NOW).

What this whole shooting match is about in the ME has one name today : OIL.

Israel and Saud and all those other monarchies are part of the Universal Empire of this age.

It began around the OIL Patch in Baku in the 1920s as follow on to the motor car age of US Rockafella/Fordism. The Pax Britannica plays for Iran/Iraq oil post WW1 then continued to Pax Americana doing the same when FDR shook Saud's hand on his return from Yalta and WW2 divide of Europe and Near Asia and sealed US military protection to that Kingdom for its future oil reserves.

So, all the rest follows that logic; from Balfour Declaration to Dear Henry's shuttle diplomacy and petrodollar hegemony.

That Israel has become the N° 1 local spear carrier of the West's unquenchable thirst for that region's fossil fuels is an evidence. That the financial lobbies of West-- controlled by a large ethnic elite who have expertise in this area since the Crusades-- and have now become the bank rollers of the NEW Templar and Zionist state is  also an evidence.

What is totally ironic is to see people here at the Hedge say "I am a patriot and I love my country" and not recognize that it is that very country's "shock and awe" doctrine practiced since Aldous Huxley day Oligarchy mindset morph, that has set in concrete and MIC knee jerks this bloody trail of "you are for us or against us" and "our way of life non negotiable" genocidal logic that has SPAWNED its dystopian dissemination worldwide. Massive military overkill has been their mantra.

We are what we do and Pax Americana and its surrogates have done it repeatedly.

For ME OIL they have sold their souls and brought destruction and death to the whole world.

Now be a patriot. And don't spout Obscurantism ideology which should have been junked way back in the earlier Crusader/Jihad period, as it had already shown to the world that those creationist books-- all three of them-- were outdated Idiot schools of knowledge.  It took the Renaissance and Constantinople's fall to teach that to the West.

But we do have fickle minds don't we? 

Grimaldus's picture

What planet are you living on? The progressive planet of kum by ya? Where prancing progressive unicorns shit skittles all day long and dance with all the happy people? Your attempt to deflect away from the islamic root of evil here is pathetic garbage.

Islam is not a religion you idiot, it is a POLITICAL SYSTEM based on hatred.

There is no place in the book of hatred quran where the sick and twisted Muhammad commands his murdering rat followers to love people of other religions.  By contrast there are at least three dozen verses that tell snackbarian rat murderers to fight against non-Muslims and about 500 that speak of their place in Hell.  They are from each period in Muhammad's life, scattered across 87 of the Quran's 114 chapters. 

To put this in perspective for progressive dhimmi morons like you, nearly one out of twelve verses in the Quran says that Allah hates non-Muslims to the extent that he will torment them for eternity in horrible ways.  The Suras that make reference to this comprise about 95% of the Quran's total volume. Here is just a sample. Feel the hatred you dhimmwit fucktard.

Quran (40:71-72) - When the fetters and the chains shall be on their necks; they shall be dragged Into boiling water, then in the fire shall they be burned

Quran (22:19-21) - But as for those who disbelieve, garments of fire will be cut out for them; boiling fluid will be poured down on their heads; Whereby that which is in their bellies, and their skins too, will be melted; And for them are hooked rods of iron

Quran (4:56) - Those who disbelieve Our revelations, We shall expose them to the Fire. As often as their skins are consumed We shall exchange them for fresh skins that they may taste the torment Lo! Allah is ever Mighty, Wise

Quran (56:92-94) - But if he is of the rejecters, the erring, then the welcome will be boiling water and roasting at hell-fire


Quran (9:73) - O Prophet! strive hard against the unbelievers and the hypocrites and be unyielding to them; and their abode is hell, and evil is the destination


Quran (66:9) - O Prophet! Strive against the disbelievers and the hypocrites, and be stern with them. Hell will be their home, a hapless journey's end.


Quran (8:55) - Surely the vilest of animals in Allah's sight are those who disbelieve

Quran (9:30) - And the Jews say: Ezra is the son of Allah, and the Christians say: The Messiah is the son of Allah... Allah (Himself) fighteth against them. How perverse are they!

Quran (4:52) - Those (Christians) are they whom Allah hath cursed...

Quran (4:47) - O you (Jews) who have been given the Book! believe that which We have revealed, verifying what you have, before We alter faces then turn them on their backs, or curse them as We cursed the violaters of the Sabbath, and the command of Allah shall be executed.

And then here----- a couple of golden hate nuggets for you dipshit and the rest of you dhimmi asshats.

Bukhari (59:727) - Allah's Apostle [said]... "Allah's curse be on the Jews and the  Christians"

Ishaq 240 - "The Jews are a nation of liars.... The Jews are a treacherous, lying, and evil people"

It's all about the hate. Murdering islamic snackbarian rats have persecuted non-believers from the beginning with muhammed's slaughter of the jewish tribes of mecca and medina. Only ignorant birdbrain moron dhimmi's believe otherwise.

How about maybe you write something like "how muslims built the very fabric of america"? Ift would fit right in with the rest of your dhimmi bullshit.

rinse and repeat the same BS.

You are as bad as the Salafists in YOUR hatred. 

You don't get it.

novictim's picture

Quite right, Grim.  There is no "good guy" in this conflict.

But stepping back, you must recognize that the Islamic foundations you note were not the mindset of the vast majority of Palestinian people in the recent past and not the majority attitude today.

How many Palestinians are now "radicalized" into buying these Koran based edicts is not known but the never ending occupation and siege on Palestine is known to boost the numbers of true believer Hamas-supporters.  These actions by Israel are therefore counter productive.

Grim, only an even handed, fair and humane resolution of this multi-decade assault on these Arabs can save both Israel and Palestinians in the long run.  US policy supporting Israeli aggression has been in this way an enabler of Islamic radicalism and is a stain on the US reputation abroad.

messystateofaffairs's picture

"But anyone who lives with rocket launchers installed or terror tunnels burrowed in or around the vicinity of their home cannot be considered an innocent civilian."

Any Jew living on stolen Palestinian land, especially those living in the more recently stolen lands of the illegal Israeli settlements, cannot be considered innocent civilians.

There, balanced it for ya.

Here they go again, for thousands of years they've had an especially tough time with these:

2. Thou shall not kill--does ethnic cleansing count?

3. Thou shall not steal--small stuff like property, big stuff like lives and futures

4. Thou shall not LIE--they seem not to be able to resist

5. Thou shall not covet--see #4 above

Todays Israel is not the biblical Isreal. The current state of israel is a man made creation, UN/League of nations. God didn't build it. But don't tell the zionists. Especially don't inform the american evangelicals who show up every sunday to be entertained by a fakester showman who does everything in his power to keep the sheep in the dark.

Infinite QE's picture

If you reach back far enough into the mystical jewish stuff, they'd say that Israel was never a place, nor meant to be a place, but to be a state of mind. Far-fucking away from what we've got today, a state of chaos.

Crawdaddy's picture

Yes amigo that is true. Israel was a physical place up to a point but then (around 2014 yrs ago) it became a state of mind. A state of choice actually. Man has free will to choose between one side or the other. Good vs evil. Salvation vs damnation.

It appears to me:

A legitimate Nation of sane human beings cannot declare War on its own prison population

Murdering ~2m helpless human beings with the 4th most powerful military (land, air, and navy) - supported by the most powerful military in the World suggests an unparalleled driven innate debachery (butchery),

Running out of ammunition and guns by the 4th most powerful military in the World because the prisoners have too many kids to kill, suggests very poor planning - in fact, political incompetence.

Supplying the 4th most powerful military in the World with the necessary ammunition and guns to continue their slaughter of innocents aka prisoners, ie women children and elderly, is highly unethical if not criminally insane; definitely inhuman.

Obviously Netanyahu and his fellow cabal of blood lusting maniacal non humans (read: toxic feral) strategize quite correctly, that if they massacre the whole or Gaza before the US Congress returns from this vacation, the global public will soon forget this travesty and focus their attention on the legitimization of  marriage to animals: beastiality or more accurately, buggery. Contraversial arguments will heaterly focus on the mechanics of having sex with your canary and other such important and vitally intellectual issues.

It is all entertainment for the unaccomplished and for those that preside, all about money and total dominance; The Trotskyite wet-dream of Global Totalitarianism (for the unwashed masses).

And then once this little adventure is over, then the Zionists and neocons, will turn their attention on all those Palestinian rednecks that populate the USA aka "The Promied Land". You Americans are all Palestinians now and how lucky for you as you can view your destiny before it even happens and on TV like Fox News and CNN.

Israel absolutely controls the USA today and their grip is final.

Ho hum


Infinite QE's picture

If I may add a few items:


"that if they massacre the whole or Gaza before the US Congress returns from this vacation," and about the time they roll out the global ebola scare and thus take attention off of the said genocide.


" You Americans are all Palestinians now and how lucky for you as you can view your destiny before it even happens and on TV like Fox News and CNN" which why the New Bolsheviks like Bloomberg and Feinstein are working fast-n-furious to get the second amendment removed as this is what truly stands in the way of the rollout of the "Trotskyite wet-dream"


Fuck Israel and all it stands for.
