Just a reminder where European anti-Israel "peace activists" stand with "Palestinians"

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?

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?
