Palestinian blogger attacked for speaking truth

Rana Baker, a Palestinian blogger from the Gaza Strip–and a very articulate, politically-astute woman–posts about threats and bigoted insults she received for blogging and tweeting Gaza’s reality:

“You’re a lowlife. And will always be a lowlife. Palestinian trash” Twitter user says to me during “Pillar of Cloud.”

December 12, 2012

Throughout the so-called “Operation Pillar of Cloud” that began on November 14th 2012 and lasted until November 21st 2012, pro-Israel apologists launched another wave of hatred in the cyberspace.

Here are screenshots of some of what I received on my personal Twitter account, timed and dated. I tried to link the screenshots to their users but it seems to me that those apologists either disappeared from Twitter or deleted their posts.

I leave it for you to decide.

And gloating over the murder of women and children

Note the violent language used: “nuke,” “wipe off.”

Text message my dad received on his phone from the Israeli terrorist army on November 16th. It says: “Stay away from Hamas elements, the next phase is coming.”

More than 150 people were  killed and 1,000 wounded in this offensive the majority of which are women, children and non-combatant men. Glory to those who were mercilessly murdered, wounded, and to those who survived.
