Washington Post's Jennifer Rubin promotes call for Palestinian genocide

By Max Blumenthal

October 25, 2011

In a blog post cheering the release of the captured Israeli soldier Gilad Shalit, neoconservative activist Rachel Decter Abrams descended into a twisted call for genocide, calling for Israel to throw released Palestinian prisoners whom she described as "child sacrificing savages" and "unmanned animals" -- along with "their offspring" -- "into the sea, to float there, food for sharks."

Abrams is the half-sister of Commentary editor John Podhoretz, the wife of Iran-Contra felon and former Assistant Secretary of State Elliot Abrams, and the daughter of Midge Decter and step daughter of neocon founding father Norman Podhoretz. She is also a board member of the right-wing Emergency Committee for Israel, which recently produced baseless ads claiming the Occupy Wall Street movement is anti-Semitic.

The Washington Post's neoconservative "Right Turn" blogger Jennifer Rubin is one of Abrams' closest allies in the media. As soon as Abrams tweeted out a link to her exterminationist blog post, Rubin -- whose Twitter account is "JRubinBlogger" -- retweeted it to her followers, clearly approving of its content. Indeed, Rubin is not known for using Twitter to simply curate news and opinions.

Here is a screenshot of Rubin's retweet of Abrams' call for mass murder:

In July 2010, the veteran CNN correspondent Octavia Nasr was fired for writing on Twitter that she was "sad" to hear of the death of Grand Ayatollah Mohammed Hussein Fadlallah, a figure instrumental in the foundation of Hezbollah whom she said she "respect[ed] a lot." Despite apologizing and explaining that she merely admired Fadlallah's strong stance against honor killings and support for women's rights, CNN heeded calls from pro-Israel groups for her termination.

An Ottawa-based diplomat from the Palestinian Authority, Linda Sobeh Ali, was reassigned by the Canadian government last week after she retweeted a link to a Youtube video that included a call for a war "against the soul of Zionism." Pro-Israel groups in Canada were responsible for bringing the retweet to the government's attention, and for pressuring it to act.

In the case of Nasr, CNN took full responsibility for what she wrote and promoted on her personal Twitter account. The news organization saw her tweet as a reflection on its reputation and credibility, and took action. The Washington Post has done nothing, however, about Rubin's approving promotion of her friend's call for genocide.

Does the Washington Post have a policy on the promotion of mass murder by its staffers? It is up to Post Ombudsman Patrick Pexton to explain if Rubin's act was permissible according to his paper's ethical guidelines, and if so, why.

Pexton can be reached at 202.334.7582 or ombudsman@washpost.com
