Radical left journalist Amira Hass not only doesn’t like the Israeli government, she doesn’t like a “purely Jewish environment,” either. By David Lev #imag1While most Jews were busy celebrating Rosh Hashana, far-left journalist Amira Hass was regaling an audience in Vancouver with chilling tales of “the occupation” – the horrors that Hass claims Israel has been perpetrating against Arabs in Judea and Samaria for decades.
But besides talking politics, Hass also talked about Israeli society – and how she no longer sees herself as a part of it. Accusing Israel of being an “apartheid state” that was carrying out an “ethnic cleansing against Palestinians,” Hass told attendees at the event sponsored by Canadians for Justice and Peace in the Middle East – a far left “activist” group that supported the illegal Turkish flotilla and the attempted lynch of IDF soldiers – that she had felt far more welcome during the several periods she lived in Gaza and Ramallah than she did in the country of her birth.
And in an interview with Paul Weinberg of the Canadian site Rabble, Hass, the daughter of Holocaust refugees, said “To tell you the truth I cannot see myself living in a purely Jewish environment. I will not be able to move back to Israel if I had to, and to live in Tel Aviv or Jerusalem…. I told my Palestinian friends, who are Israeli citizens, okay if I am kicked out of Ramallah, I will go and live in a Palestinian neighborhood, in Israel itself.”
