MJ Rosenberg Gets Desperate

After MJ Rosenberg published his recent accusation-filled article about the death of Abu Rahma, a lot of pro-Israel users (including myself) challenged his narrative. We pointed out that tear gas has never been lethal and even if the IDF did use a different kind of tear gas that was more dangerous, it didn't make sense that everyone else at the protest was perfectly fine except for Abu Rahma.

How did Mr. Rosenberg react to this? Not surprisingly, not very well:

Have you got that, fellow Huffington Post users? If you don't sit down, shut up and accept this totally implausible story about the first person ever to die from tear gas inhalation you are a:

Nazi
Holocaust denier
"Israel-firster"
Mindless
And generally a terrible human being

It's actually kind of impressive how many insults he was able to pack into one post. Let us not forget as well his strawman argument: That just because other users don't buy the story of Abu Rahma's "murder" at the hands of the IDF they must therefore justify and/or excuse every Palestinian death ever and forever into the future. As an example of how that isn't true, I invite anyone to check out the Omar Kawasmeh thread. You will not find many people trying to justify it. I know that I didn't.

In summary the conversation on this thread went kind of like this:
A: "Abu Rahma is dead! The IDF killed her!"
B: "How could that be? Tear gas is not lethal."
A: "Oh yeah? Well here's an article in Ha'aretz that says Israel was using a more dangerous kind of tear gas!"
B: "Then how come no one else at the protest died?"
A: "How dare you try and justify this murder! You're an Israel firster!"
And then the anti-Zionists and their friends wonder why they fail to convince us to their point of view. Insults doesn't make you seem more in the right, Mr. Rosenberg. It just makes you seem desperate.

  1. That's standard operating procedure pretty much across the board.

    If you dare to disagree they slander you as a racist or as a horrible and immoral human being.

  2. The guy is a reincarnated Bolshevik.
    My great aunt died in Auschwitz.
    Half my family moved to Israel in 1920 from Poland. The other half made it to the US.
    Rosenberg just spit in our faces with that post.
    He has nothing on us. F him.

  4. The more I ponder his comment, and this particular comment, the more my suspicions are raised about him. Does anyone know for sure that this guy really is Jewish? No Jew I have ever known would ever say what he said...I think he's from Mexico...and is of Arab descent.

    Nice to see that you have nothing negative to say about the attack, either. One thing is for certain on this blog, I rarely, if ever, see it speaking out against Israel's actions.

    And then you sarcastically deflect and minimize the event ....

    "the first person ever to die from tear gas inhalation "

    You are no better then the people you are ranting about, so you can just "climb off the cross".

  7. "the first person ever to die from tear gas inhalation "

    is juust a plain common or garden lie.

    Amnesty International reported 40 deaths from tear gas inhalation in one year alone (1987/8), and ....

    "Dr. Howard Hu of the Harvard School of Public Health said that although research in the field is lacking, he knew of at least one case in the medical literature where an infant exposed to "a relatively low concentration" of tear gas in the open air died of pulmonary edema.

    "In Vietnam," Hu said, "hundreds of people were killed by acute tear gas inhalation. When the gas reaches high concentrations, as it can in closed spaces, it will cause fatal pulmonary edema. Basically it will burn up the lungs and the lungs will fill up with water."

    and a child was killed by tear gas in September 2010 in East Jerusalem.

Hey guys we've started to employ a slight comment policy. We used to have completely open comments but then people abused it. So our comment policy is such: No obvious trolling or spamming. And be warned: unlike the Huffington Post we actually enforce our comment policy.
