How could an Israel-hater contribute to the Jewish Journal of Los Angeles? Because the Jewish Journal is a leftist publication and the left is home to most of the hatred of Israel today.
JTA reports: The Jerusalem Post fired senior reporter Larry Derfner after he penned a controversial blog post justifying terrorist attacks against Israelis.
The post, titled “The awful, necessary truth about Palestinian terror,” appeared on a personal blog Derfner shares, Israel Reconsidered. It stoked a firestorm of controversy in Israel for appearing to justify the recent terrorist attack near Eilat, which left eight Israelis dead. It was later deleted from the blog.
“Whoever the Palestinians were who killed the eight Israelis near Eilat last week, however vile the ideology was, they were justified to attack,” Derfner wrote, according to text from the blogcited Sunday by Jerusalem Post columnist Isi Liebler.
