"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.

Note to Darteus:

opening with "note to Jew-Haters" isn't a great opener.  In fact, it kind of makes you look like a bit of a fucktard.

The "criticism of Israel is Jew hate" smear is so insane even the ADL, agents for Israel, have backed away from it.

Honestly - you need to up yo game, nigga!  Your shit be triflin' and tedious, couz!*

A new oil discovery in southern Israel might turn out to be the catalyst for an internal and self-destructive war in the Palestinian Authority, with Hamas in Gaza and chairman Mahmoud Abbas in Ramallah likely to claim ownership of a new Israeli offshore oil discovery near Ashdod.

You missed the part where is says "and Israel's ability to bring genocide to the Palestinians will be achieved using American made/supplied weaponry".

Although insanely horrific, Jews telling others when genocide is permissible is fucking hilarious.

Kinda like them driving a Mercedes.

They didn't mean genocide.


They really just meant ethnic cleansing for "living room" - which, of course, they are entitled to do, and you're a filthy antishemite if you disagree, m'kay?

Ashkenazi Khazarian "Jews" are certainly not Shemite, but are sons of Ham.

Seek_Truth's picture

Wrong, Ashkenaz is descended from Japheth. (Genesis 10:3)

Japheth > Gomer > Ashkenaz.

Ashkenaz was the Grandson of Japheth.

Which of course means they are not Semites (sons of Shem).

You know all that shit is make believe - don't you?

You'll find out soon that it is certainly not make believe.

Going back in time, were the Redskins genocided?  Was it worth it?  I'd argue no.  But there are many immigrants, particularly those of Euro decent, who feel a sense of patriotism to their conquered lands, who'd disagree.  (downvote me please if you're one of them)

I'm waiting for the IDF to catapult Arabs they've inected with plague over the walls... or the modern equivalent.

If the Arabs weren't Semites themselves I'm sure the Israelis would have developed a bio weapon that targets Arabs. As it is, there's just enough Semitic blood in the average Israeli that it would kill lots of them, too.

ZerOhead's picture

Except the Ashkenazi jews like Netanyahu... very little if any semitic blood in them. Of course that's just what science and DNA testing tells us.


So if the covenants with God found in the Torah (Old Testament) are with the lineages of Abraham, Isaac, Jacob and of course King David  (Let's remember that Yahweh was always a family god which allowed for a lineage of kings right down to Jesus... born of the House of David remember?) then the Ashkenazi are quite simply not Jews in the traditional sense like the Sephardim who are clearly semitic like the rest of the regions Arabs including the Palestinians themselves.


"The majority of Ashkenazi Jews are descended from prehistoric European women, according to study published today (October 8) in Nature Communications. While the Jewish religion began in the Near East, and the Ashkenazi Jews were believed to have origins in the early indigenous tribes of this region, new evidence from mitochondrial DNA, which is passed on exclusively from mother to child, suggests that female ancestors of most modern Ashkenazi Jews converted to Judaism in the north Mediterranean around 2,000 years ago and later in west and central Europe."

Big Jim, check out Prof. Shlomo Sand.

"In When and How Was the Jewish People Invented?, Dr. Sand, an expert on European history at the University of Tel Aviv, says the Diaspora was largely a myth – that the Jews were never exiled en masse from the Holy Land and that many European Jewish populations converted to the faith centuries later. (Sand’s book was published in English as The Invention of the Jewish People.)

Thus, Sand argues, many of today’s Israelis who emigrated from Europe after World War II have little or no genealogical connection to the land. According to Sand’s historical analysis, they are descendents of European converts, principally from the Kingdom of the Khazars in eastern Russia, who embraced Judaism in the Eighth Century, A.D."
Also The 13th Tribe by another Jew. Some of these guys are taking risks by trying to do the right thing.

I would be more concerned that the somewhere between incompetent and insane Hamas leadership, which the nut cases in Jerusalem insist on continually empowering, enriching and entrenching in Gaza- might soon figure out how easy it is to use the IDF's beloved Iron Dome against Israel and force them to turn it off.

But if either side goes medieval on the other, I would expect something less lethal and more containable to be used, because I don't believe either side (on the ground) wants to throw something over the wall only to have it thrown back in their face and induce an unacceptable loss.

Urban Redneck's picture

Iron Dome interceptors use a high explosive fragmentation warhead with a proximity fuse to destroy incoming rockets at altitude and (just) outside of population centers before those rockets can drop into populated areas and their high explosive warheads detonate on impact in that populated area. This only works great as long destroying the rocket in midair causes less damage than letting it impact the ground. The strategy is as old as Sun Tsu and the technology is even more ancient than the rockets Hamas is currently fielding, and it doesn't require any more knowledge, skill, or research than a few STEM undergrads can crank out in short order. I didn't mention the "coincidentally" named Crimean Fever in another thread today just because a crazy white Canadian can pick it up from the local bush meat and bring it to the lower 48, but also because it was one of the earliest (and simplest) biological weapons of the modern era.

The fanatics on both sides of this dispute seem to be under the misconception that there is some other long term option than making peace and finding a way to live side by side, where they "win". Whether the tactics are high tech or low tech, high $ cost or low $ cost, high human cost or low human cost is somewhat beside the point when the strategy is a losing one.

Mike Ochisbent's picture

No, I think they'd be safe -- and they know it. Genetic research is showing that the Ashkenazis are significantly Khazar and other European stock. Not Semites. It's all a huge freaking hoax and it has become our dominant mythology promulgated by KoolAid-swilling apostatic "Christians". What a country.

If I stole my neighbor's 3 year old kid's tricycle, and as a result he declared war on me, called me a bunch of names, threw rocks at me and said he wanted to kill me, would I then be entitled to beat the shit out of him, kill his dog, tip over his sandbox and lock him in the basement for 3 years?  After all, he threatened me with annihilation.
