Israeli PM’s son exhibits Islamophobia and abuses Muslims on Facebook

Like father, like son. There’s little to comment at this juncture, evidence speaks for itself.

The Israeli prime minister’s 19-year-old son — a military spokesman — posted derisive comments about Arabs and Muslims on his Facebook page, drawing a slap on the wrist from his superiors and focusing new attention on the controversial first family.

Earlier this year, Yair Netanyahu posted that Muslims “celebrate hate and death,” the Haaretz daily newspaper reported Friday. In the same post, written after Palestinian assailants entered a West Bank settlement and stabbed five members of an Israeli family to death, he wrote that “terror has a religion and it is Islam.”

The defamatory comments drew an immediate condemnation from the Palestinians, who are skeptical of his father Benjamin Netanyahu’s declared willingness to make the painful concessions necessary to give them a state.

Yair Netanyahu also wrote that he hoped “there would never be” a Palestinian state, and two years prior, he ran a Facebook group of 23 people that had called for a boycott of Arab businesses and products.

Haaretz said the comments in question were removed from the Facebook page within two hours of the paper’s request for a response from the prime minister’s aides.

The prime minister’s office wouldn’t comment on the Facebook reports, referring questions to a lawyer for the Netanyahu family. (Source)
