Some Huffington Post bloggers make their hatred of Israel and/or the Jewish people obvious. Like Sharmine Narwani or Ahmed Moor. Others creep up on you, like Michael Carmichael. We have an example of the latter today.
Valerie Keefe is a Huffington Post Canada blogger who usually writes about women's and gender issues. In other words, classic Huffington Post blogger material. However, recently she showed up in a thread about Haredim issues in Israel and had some things to say:
Isn't it interesting how a "criticism" of Israel's "policy" suddenly turns into a question of "legitimacy?" Maybe she said that the policy lacks I find it difficult to believe that it was just a coincidence that Ms. Keefe happened to use that word in this particular instance.
The rest of the post is simply a spotlight on her ignorance: Israel has never evaluated the success of a military mission by ignoring civilian casualties, nor does she have any proof they view every civilian as "partly" a combatant. This stands in strong opposition to Israel's enemies who evaluate how successful their operations are by the number of civilian casualties: i.e. more is better. Nor do I believe that NATO cares much how many civilians they kill, at least as far as I can tell.
When challenged by Huffington Posters on this remark, Ms. Keefe's defense is "I'm Canadian." Seriously, take a look at the thread if you don't believe me.
