TikTokers wished a 97-year-old Auschwitz survivor a 'happy Holocaust' as some 'Free Palestine' suppo

Source: Yahoo News

At 97, Lily Ebert is one of the oldest Jewish creators on TikTok. She is also a survivor of the Auschwitz death camp, where the Nazis murdered 1.5 million Jews.

Neither facts were enough to restrain the online mob looking for Jews to abuse on social media since Israel's bombing campaign on Gaza began.

After posting an innocuous TikTok video wishing her followers a restful Shabbat (Sabbath) from her London home, her great-grandson and the account's administrator said she was flooded with "messages of hate."

A "Happy Holocaust," "Peace be upon Hitler," and "Ask her if she thinks the treatment of Palestinians reminds her [of] the treatment she got in the camps" were some of the comments Ebert received

67. Criticism of the Israeli government

Is completely valid. While I understand the tactics of attempting to respond to an attack with greater force, I believe not enough effort is put into minimizing civilian casualties.

Attacking Jewish people for the actions of the government of Israel is antisemitic.

I also can condemn Hamas for their rockets directed at Israel's population centers. Likewise blaming all Palestinians for the actions of Hamas is unacceptable

That response has long since passed its "sell by" date, but every single time someone on the left may have behaved badly, it gets trotted out again.

But people in places like Somalia, Pakistan, Bangladesh, Indonesia etc. There is so much hypocrisy there.

I do not support the past, present, or future slaughter of any group of people. I do not support theocracies, be they in Israel, Iran, or Anywhere else. I donít support one group forcing a weaker group to live in massive ghettos, be they pre-WW2-Jews or modern Palestinians. WE MUST STOP ARMING DEADLY CONFLICTS ANYWHERE IN THE WORLD.

14. Rich Lowry huh?

"Richard Lowry is an American writer who is the editor of National Review, an American conservative news and opinion magazine. Lowry became editor of National Review in 1997 when selected by its founder, William F. Buckley, Jr."

...

Lowry has written three non-fiction books. His New York Times best-selling book, Legacy: Paying the Price for the Clinton Years[8] is a polemic against former President Bill Clinton, whom he characterizes as "Navel-Gazer-in-Chief".

...

During the COVID-19 pandemic, Lowry praised Florida governor Ron DeSantis for his hands-off approach to the coronavirus in a May 2020 column titled "Where does Ron DeSantis go to get his apology?"


Rich Lowry being posted on a "progressive" forum. Which side are you actually on?

Actually, this subthread was started by someone bringing the actions of Israel into the fray, in a thread about Jews being attacked because of peoples' issues with Israel. What is more obvious in this thread are some who are willing to overlook anti-Semitism and only comment on Israel and its "evilness", others who make excuses for the actions, or those who try to deflect from the actual topic and the seriousness of it, anti-Semitism.

and the world made nary a sound.

Each dominate group in the region has done it for centuries to each other. A little historical perspective would be good here.

Lets say that is true.
So are you saying that makes it right? Almost sounds like a "whataboutism" arguement "they did it too sooo"

We should evolve and improve. Throwing children out into the street so you can steal their home and then accused them of violence if they act mad about it, is not what I would hope for from an developed nation that calls itself a democracy.
