Blog published by the Times of Israel says Ed Miliband, Owen Jones and Jon Snow are complicit in children’s deaths

Another inflammatory blog hosted by the Times of Israel.

By Media Mole

Perhaps it’s time for the Times of Israel to rethink its system of hosting blogs, now that the second incendiary blogpost in a week involving Gaza has appeared on the site.

Members of the public can apply for their own blogs through the website, and can then publish their work unedited by the paper. This time, there is a blog with the headline “Named & Shamed: Complicity in the Death of Children”. The writer goes on to say that the UN, the Channel 4 News presenter Jon Snow, the National Union of Students, Labour leader Ed Miliband and UK leftwing commentator Owen Jones are all complicit in the death of children in Gaza.

Here’s an example:

The blog’s argument? “… if they had all considered the consequences of their actions, rather than rewarding the cold-blooded savagery of a genocidal organisation, we might have seen the end of the tactic of deliberately having children die.”

This outrageous post comes just a week after the Times of Israel pulled a blog published on the site headlined, “When Genocide is Permissible”.
