26. And his message of hate seems to be finding an audience

as evidenced by the Alert which I just sent on a DU Poster who claims that (A) "Israel is committing genocide against the Palestinian people" and (B) "Israel DENIES this fact".

All this because I objected to the OP using the word "genocide" in the context of ISIL systematically destroying historical artifacts and artwork in the ME. I pointed out that, as horrific as this is, it is not a "genocide".

What the holy fuck is wrong with these people? Seriously. Just WTF?!

And I have to wonder what the Jury will do.

On edit : Jury voted 3-4 Leave it Alone.

Juror #6 sort-of, almost "gets" the problem, more or less:

Juror #6 voted to HIDE IT
Explanation: Not exactly "Jew hatred" but bullshit for sure, but yet another example of something NOT being about Israel magically becoming about Israel.


Juror #7 however might have saved the tattered honor of the DU community by writing this:

Juror #7 voted to HIDE IT
Explanation: I am voting to hide because the poster thinks wrecking museum pieces (big crime, that) is the same as killing people. That's just dumb and that needs to be corrected. The poster is not taking this point even when instructed on it, which makes me wonder if this is one of those Holocaust deniers or just someone who is quirky and being a contrarian for trollish sport, or even someone who just doesn't get the significance--the deep significance, mind you--of the word GENOCIDE. Don't trifle with that word. Don't use it lightly. It has a precise meaning. If bodies are stacked like cordwood and an entire ethnicity of people are being wiped out, that's genocide. Destroying artifacts that have been catalogued, photographed, replicated and documented is what assholes do, but it's not genocide. There's no arguing about this, no back-and-forth. Words have meanings.
