Prof OK With Calling Israelis ‘Mob,’ But Not Palestinians

On Thursday, George Mason University Noura Erakat tweeted out a Washington Post article entitled “Israel’s use of fatal force in Gaza: Excessive force or justified mob control?” reported The Daily Caller News Foundation. This headline triggered Noura, who responded ““Mob”??? Can we plz try to acknowledge Palestinians as human? Not bugs to be exterminated. This is a freedom struggle.”

When I saw this awesome display of intellectual brilliance, I immediately put aside all thoughts like the fact that at least 50 of the 62 individuals killed by Israel Monday were Hamas or Islamic Jihad terrorists and thought to myself, “wow, what an upstanding citizen Noura must be, policing offensive words out of the English language.” It never even occurred to me that she might be a total hypocrite who shudders when the word “mob” is applied to Palestinians, but has used the exact same word to describe Israelis.

Oops, actually, here’s one of her tweets from a little while back: “Fadi Alloun – shot dead by Israeli police while he ran away from an Israeli mob.” And, of course, she neglects to mention that Alloun had allegedly stabbed a Jewish boy right beforehand. In case this didn’t convince you of how superb a mental gymnast Noura is, contorting language to fit her agenda, take a look at this time she tweeted about the murder of a Muslim teen in Virginia. She says “White supremacy breeds in all quarters,especially in the most liberal ones we call home.”

Except, as a commenter pointed out, the teen’s accused murderer, Darwin Martinez Torres, was not white, but Hispanic. Noura, of course, very adeptly dodged this pesky fact by saying “White supremacy is an ideology and what drives Islamophobia. Not race specific. Don’t need to be white to practice it.”
