Ahmed Shihab-Eldin Endorses BDS

Huffington Post Live editor Ahmed Shihab-Eldin is rapidly stripping away all pretenses of objectivity with his choice of articles and behavior on HPLive. Here's another piece of evidence to add to the pile.

"ASE" as his Twitter handle is called tweeted an article about Stevie Wonder performing in Israel and included the hash tag "BDS". Here's a screenshot:


Should we take from this tweet that Ahmed Shihab-Eldin supports the BDS movement, a group that is dedicated to the collective punishment of the Israeli people which intends to destroy the sovereign state of Israel, something which is illegal under international and US law? It would certainly fit the pattern of his past behavior, and there is nothing from his Twitter feed to indicate otherwise.

How long will the Huffington Post allow this clearly partisan propagandist to remain on its staff and payroll? Or at the very least, when will they hire a militant Israeli to spew propaganda and hate while shouting down people on HuffPostLive. You know, for "balance?"

  1. Arianna Huffington is a rabid anti-Semite.

    So are most of the people that are employed by her.

    They are ALL mouthpieces for Arianna and her agenda, and as long as she has them to spew their vitriolic hatred, she doesnt have to.
    That is also the reason why so many anti-Semites are allowed to post
    the vitriol they do in the comments section. She gladly gives them a stage and a microphone.

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.
