Vegans, terrorists and a passion for blood

...Chances are that Ariel Gold (-Vegan) will be more disturbed by the tasteless image Nariman Tamimi shared on FB than by her open display of support for an unrepentant murderer who was only too delighted to find out that her victims included eight children.

In the Tamimi playbook, vegans (and other liberal-minded
groups) play the role of useful idiots. This image 
of a Tamimi cousin with a passion for slaughtered creatures 
was posted by Mrs Bassem Tamimi on her Facebook page

to slaughter.

[Hats off to Petra Marqardt-Bigman for her ongoing close analysis of the Bassem Tamimi US tour (now underway - currently in San Francisco) and the ill-informed and frequently hateful activism of the tour's sponsors [see "13-Sep-15: A roadshow and its groupies"]. Here's her latest contribution cross-posted from Sunday's Jerusalem Post. It's called "Vegans against the occupation".]
When I first heard about “Vegans against the occupation,” I thought for a moment that this was surely a group opposing the Chinese occupation of Tibet. After all, even though Tibet’s climate makes it difficult to be a vegetarian or vegan, Buddhism has traditionally been very sensitive about the suffering of animals and is often associated with promoting vegetarian or even vegan diets.

But of course I was wrong: “Vegans against the occupation” is just another group with an intense hatred for Israel – so intense, in fact, that one of the leading members of this small group has been devoting a lot of energy to promoting the Tamimis of Nabi Saleh, who obviously couldn’t care less about veganism.

[Warning: disturbing screenshot below, showing a teenaged Tamimi family member posing mockingly with the severed head of a goat or sheep slaughtered for Eid al Adha, the Muslim Festival of Sacrifice, which often gives rise to debates about cruelty against animals.]

But Ariel Gold, aka Ariel Gold-Vegan of Ithaca, New York, hates Israel more than she hates this kind of revolting “fun”. While “Vegans against the occupation” is a tiny group that doesn’t warrant much attention, it provides an excellent example of the bottomless hypocrisy that is the hallmark of anti-Israel activism.
