You’re just another infidel:
ISLAMIST extremists in Gaza kidnapped a European journalist and peace activist this week and promised to kill him within 30 hours if Hamas did not release Palestinian prisoners. For the past two and a half years, he has been in Gaza with the International Solidarity Movement, monitoring human rights violations by Israel.
Israel Matzav notes how he arrived:
Israel Radio reports that Arrigoni – who is pro-‘Palestinian’ – entered Gaza with the first blockade-running flotilla and has lived in Gaza ever since. Useful idiot.
Well apparently he wasn’t a useful enough idiot because he’s now been killed
Hamas found the body of a pro-Palestinian Italian activist who was abducted and killed by al Qaeda aligned militants in the Gaza Strip, raising questions about the Islamist group’s security grip on the coastal enclave. Two men were arrested and others were being sought in the killing of Vittorio Arrigoni, 36, who was found strangled in an abandoned house, Hamas officials said.
The folks at Salem-news.com on the west coast have an… interesting take concerning this murder:
People in Gaza have a voice because of hard working dedicated peace activists like Vik Arrigoni. Beyond the overly religious fanatical Salafist radicals, the only detractors this man had were Israeli Zionists who wished for his death for years.
You will note in the video below that Ken O’Keefe, our writer and diehard activist friend in Gaza, does not believe or at least did not, that any Palestinian could be responsible for Vik’s death.
Indeed, it is hard to imagine anyone doing this to a man who was so well loved and respected. It is exceedingly clear that everything is out of sync.
The perpetrators of this crime Ken suggests, were Zionist agents of Israel. This is the obvious relentless enemy of the Palestinian people, with frequent strikes on civilian targets in Gaza from U.S. made fighter jets and drones.
I’m sure Mr. O’Keefe doesn’t. After all why would anyone ever think that any Palestinian could be responsible for senseless violence. Oh and Itamar doesn’t count, beheading infants and killing children isn’t senseless if they are Jews.
Exit Question: Given the level of denial in the statement above who is more fanatical in their beliefs? the “Salafist radicals” or the authors of this article?
Update: It’s not a laughing matter but how else can you react when you see such an article like this one at the guardian?:
Arrigoni’s brutal murder comes after the murder of a settler family and the shooting of theatre director Juliano Mer-Khamis last week. Writing as someone who has spent a great deal of time in the West Bank over the years, these events seem alien to the Palestinian culture of resistance I have come to know and respect. Such actions smack of some kind of dirty war, based on motives that have little to do with the ongoing struggle for Palestinian self-determination.
Are you kidding me?
