"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.

and another child raping rabbi said this...



The purpose of Gentiles — to serve Jews:

“Goyim were born only to serve us. Without that, they have no place in the world – only to serve the People of Israel.”

“In Israel, death has no dominion over them… With gentiles, it will be like any person – they need to die, but [God] will give them longevity. Why? Imagine that one’s donkey would die, they’d lose their money.

“This is his servant… That’s why he gets a long life, to work well for this Jew.”

“Why are gentiles needed? They will work, they will plow, they will reap. We will sit like an effendi and eat… That is why gentiles were created.”

It's interesting to me how some people in the U.S. dislike Islam very much for some of its teachings and actions, but for some reason give the Jews a pass. I'm gonna take a stab and say......propaganda?

not many muslims own media outlets 

COSMOS's picture

I find it rather funny, all these muslims head off to Iraq or Syria to kill other muslims, instead of going to Gaza to help out their brethren.  I guess even muslims like killing muslims.  I guess the Jews are doing what other muslims do.  Irony and sarcasm.

Again, too of a simplistic view, Cosmos.

Wait when oil goes to 50 then, 30 million barrels a day.

See if you will have the same simplistic view of Red and Blue America as there will be less and less to go around.

I agree with just about everything the guy said right up to the use of the 'G' word, which was inappropriate.  Since Hamas's charter calls for the annihilation of Jews and Israel, Israel is perfectly within its rights to do just about anything it needs to to stop them.  As for all the whining about civilian casualties, its ridiculously easy for Hamas to avoid them if it really wanted to.  Just stop using schools, playgrounds, Mosques and private homes as munitions dumps and launching pads for missiles and rockets aimed at Israeli civilians.  When the IDF texts you and drop leaflets in advance warning you to get out of Dodge because they're coming, get the fuc out of Dodge and take the wife and kids with you. But I'm just being facetious because Hamas doesn't give a rats ass about dead women and children. The more the merrier.  It builds sympathy for the movement from millions of luseful idiots like many posting on this Board. It's indispensible to the Propaganda War which Hamas has to win because it could never defeat Israel militarily.  There's 1.8 million people in Gaza and another 3 million in the territories. About 1200 have been killed so far including mostly Hamas combatants.  What is that? About one thousandth of one percent? And you call that right.  The Jews can't do anything right, including Genocide.

You'd be terrible at genocide Missmarfac.  And I don't mean that as a compliment.  You don't have to shoot every member-of-offending-race.  Deny them arable land.  Water.  Trade goods.  Incrementally cram them into smaller and smaller spaces until desperation and disease take their toll.  Take a look at Israeli expansion for tips: http://jfjfp.com/?p=44969


Go hug a tree, madam, cause you'll never be a Himmler in this army.

oudinot's picture

Your rational for justified genocide is appalling,sick and creepy.

You really are fucked.

Mike Ochisbent's picture

Sure, the Jews can do certain things right, you ignorant Zio-tard. They killed 66 million in the Soviet Union. Tens of millions in Ukraine during the Holodomors of the 20th century. The Bolsheviks and their Chekist executioners were almost completely Jewish in makeup. The Holocaust was amateurish by comparison.

Monty Burns's picture

I'd argue with 'again'.  That particulat story don't stand up to any kind of impartial investigation.

Urban Redneck's picture

No. Hamas cannot destroy Israel. The GENOCIDAL WAR CRIME that Netanyahu and EVERY member of the IDF is guilty of is conflating Hamas with the Palestinian population of Gaza. Arguing that crimes against Palestinian civilians are justified is bullshit. Even when the US is mowing down Iraqi, Afghani, or even Nazi German civilians in a full on combat, there are limits of both acceptable and legal collateral damage. No one (outside of a few Israphile neocons) would argue otherwise.

Simply reverse their twisted illogic. Would it acceptable to kill every last Jew in Palestine in order to destroy such genocidal maniacs as Bibi Netanyahu and Ayelet Shaked? When has Bibi ever come out and publicly said that Hamas is justified in lobbing unguided rockets at Israel, much less in targeting Israeli civilians?

WillyGroper's picture

I just had a convo regarding this ongoing obscenity.

I was asked if someone dropped a pamphlet on my house with the stated intention of bombing it, if I'd stay there?

He was TOTALLY unaware that they were fenced in.

To be fair, this person is totally aware as to the evil agenda here. It was his bias toward muslims that I just made him aware of.  

We all have beliefs. Most from our tribes. Few will challenge them, even when presented with unshakable evidence. Way too uncomfortable.

Frostfan1's picture

The house was fenced in?  How do they ever come and go out of the house then?

Canucklehead's picture

When you are totally unaware that someone is totally aware, does that mean the one who is totally aware can transfer some of that awareness to the one who is totally unaware? If they can, is there a limit to the transfer as the recipient is totally unaware?

NidStyles's picture

There are few things worse than being aware and trying to associate with someone unaware without knowing how far the conversation can go. 

Missmarfac's picture

U r an urban redneck and a dumb  asshole too.  Do you know how to do any arithmetic?  1200 people (mostly hamas terrorists) have been killed out of a population of 1.8 million in Gaza ,excluding the other 3 million so-called palestinians in the West Bank. Do you know how do simple fractions?  What's that equal, duh, Genocide??  Fuckin Moron.

Urban Redneck's picture

I am apparently a whole lot smarter than you. You don't even know what genocide is, and appear to be under the laughable misconception that there is some arithmetic involved in genocide or its definition.

“It is our true policy to steer clear of entangling alliances with any portion of the foreign world.” – George Washington (1732-1799)

And here are our so called "Representatives" in DC, as paid whores for International Zionism:  THIS IS WHAT TREASON LOOKS LIKE  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KBpft6pQClY

Friendship?  Ally?  Are you shitting me?  These imply and include a BILATERAL/MUTUAL/RECIPROCAL relationship – IN DEED.  Israel meets none of them toward the USA.  None.  They are and truly act as a Foreign Power, a parasitic Foreign Power.  Seemingly benign, but manipulating its host -- much like an intelligent and controlling parasite in a Sci-Fi show or movie.

Sadly, this one-sided, parasitic relationship will not end, until the USD is finally dethroned from  its undeserving and abusive position as the GRC (Global Reserve Currency), from whose power it derives all other benefits.

Rational and reasonable people (like me) can only hope that when day comes and that parasitic tie is severed, that the People of Israel with change their political and social system from its prevailing fascist and racist Zionist State, to a Democratic State.

Tick, tock.

well said, Israhell and our federal government are occupying powers over the American populace.

Paveway IV's picture

The House of Representatives of the 113th congress passed Resolution 107 supporting genocide of the Palistinian people and exhonerating Israel of war crimes and crimes against humanity. It passed by a voice vote, so (as usual) the dual-citizen representatives can weasel out of responsibility and deny voting for it.

There were, however, 102 Israel-firster state representatives that went on record to sponsor that bill - the provisions of which are opposed by a majority of voters in the United States. Fake polls try to prove otherwise as part of the larger mainstream media aggressor-as-victim narrative but are failing in a spectacular way. 

The 102 representatives that sponsored that bill have ignored the will of the American people and wiped their feet on the constitution. States unfortunate enough to have elected these traitors have a moral obligation to petition for immediate recall and have them face another election. If the U.S. is still a democracy, then voters of every state have that right explicitly. Nobody needs 'special' permission from the elected officials they seek to UN-elect.

  • Recall all 102 sponsors of HR 107 - The Palistinian Genocide Approval Resolution
  • Have their political parties replace them immediately or hold a recall election if they resist
  • Prepare to recall any senate israeli-firsters that vote for this genocide bill (now in the senate)
  • Demand return of any congressional pay for time the politicians have wasted related to this bill
  • Threaten the same treatment for any congressional action to transfer U.S. taxpayer money - in any way, shape or form - to Israel for any purpose

Congress is always last to see the wind change. Give them time, with in 3 months they will have reversed themselves.
With meetings about sanctions on Israel.

Genocide is not a people pleaser, and now Israel full frontal bat-shit insanity is for all to gap at in wide wonder.
Internet doesn't forget or forgive. Watch the damage control kick in, an fail.

john39's picture

more psychosis on display here:


"7. Sovereignty – Gaza is part of our Land and we will remain there forever. Liberation of parts of our land       forever is the only thing that justifies endangering our soldiers in battle to capture land. Subsequent to the elimination of terror from Gaza, it will become part of sovereign Israel and will be populated by Jews. This will also serve to ease the housing crisis in Israel."

reads like a list of nazi war crimes...

When hundreds of nuke warheads go slamming in, they will have nobody but themselves to blame.

teslaberry's picture

i think you don't understand how nukes work, the nations that HAVE NUCLEAR WEAPONS don't get nuked for fear of reprisal. 

no body would ever have anyone to blame if they got nuked, cause they'd be dead. in fact, this is why the responsible behavior on any nations part is to obtain nuclear weapons as fast as possible. 


as a nuclear capable nation, the only reponsible policy is to PREVENT OTHER NATIONS FROM GETTING NUCLEAR WEAPONS. 





kaiserhoff's picture

Don't think it would take hundreds.  Israel is about 80 miles wide, on average, less than ten at the narrows, and down wind from Hamas, which is one of the few things limiting their options.


Winston Churchill's picture

Bunker busters, with HE warheads, into Dimona would work just fine .No need of nukes.

A poetic irony , to be genocided by their own denied weapons.

COSMOS's picture

Interesting point you bring up.  If say Dimona got hit and we had a major nuclear disaster that made most of Israel uninhabitable.  What would happen and where would they go?   Would we see Israel take over Syria for lebensraum?

disabledvet's picture

It is a little odd that the pretext for all this was a downed airliner in Ukraine.

If Genocide is acceptable why does one need a pretext? If so "why does it come with an apology"? It's not like the Jews can deny their own history../therefore the implications are clear: "genocide us or we will genocide you!"

Abused children become abusers.

Why are we surprised the Jews have become nazis.

You don't need to put words in his mouth.  He said what he said.  This is ZH.

Not all Germans were Nazi's and not all jews are Israeli. And if, a Nazi is not a true German then an Israeli is not a true Jew.
Crazy is crazy. Just calling out crazy should be enough.

I think you mean zionists, and so did I.

I have nothing against jews per se.

One of my sisters in law is jewish , as was my maternal grandmother , which makes me

jewish according to their laws.I have no religion.

I am an outraged human being primarily.

This bullshit has to stop , something the trolls cannot/will not understand.

Maybe the guy got banned for telling the truth about Israel before his reinarnation as a new poster?  Some might find it strange JLee's and your trolling haven't been banned yet.

Why don't you  pro-Israel turds fuck off to someplace else, its obvious by all your downvotes nobody agrees with you.  Go to Israel if you love it so much, plenty of  freaks there and you'll fit right in.
