On Wednesday afternoon, the Council on American Islamic Relations Twitter account featured an article from the anti-Israel blog Electronic Intifada that justifies Palestinian terror towards Israel. Minutes later, the group deleted the tweet but it was first captured and retweeted:
The picture, a spoof of an ADL ad warning of Palestinian terror against Israel, reads:
Imagine you've been stateless for 66 years, living under military occupation for the last 47 years, and under a devastating trade embargo for the last 8. Imagine that anyone around you could be arbitrarily executed without due process by the occupying army. Imagine you had absolutely no legal recourse for addressing your predicament. No people would tolerate such conditions forever, and neither will Palestinians.
THAT'S WHY PALESTINIANS FIGHT BACK
The article also derides Israel and the counter-terrorism initiatives of the Israeli government as "the latest act in a storied history of shameful behavior."
Earlier this week, CAIR leader Nihad Awad promoted anti-Semitism in an Arabic tweet.
