Occupied Palestine (QNN)- The son of Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has called for the prince of Wales and UK diplomats to be “kicked out” of ‘Israel’ after the British Consulate in occupied Jerusalem referred to the Palestinian territories as occupied.
The prime minister’s middle child, Yair, who is known for his strange and racist statements on social media, made the comment in response to an announcement that Prince Charles was making his first visit to the area in January.
“God willing you guys will be kicked out of Israel soon,” the 28-year-old tweeted. “Until then I’m thinking of visiting the occupied lands of Scotland or Wales, which do you recommend?”
He explained his comment by saying that the British consulate in occupied Jerusalem “pretends to be the embassy to the non-existing country of ‘Palestine’.”
He also went on to complain that “Northern Ireland is recognised as part of Britain by the entire world” and “nobody disputes Britain sovereignty there and claims it belong to the Republic of Ireland”.
Twitter users were quick to respond stating that all UK citizens share the same rights and none of them are colonizers, who came from other parts of the world, unlike Palestinians who are subjected to military repressive system and the Israelis, who came from all over the world to occupy Palestine.
This is not the first time for Yair that he shares controversial tweets. Last year he said that “there is no such thing” as Palestine because the letter “P” does not appear in the Arabic alphabet.
His theory quickly attracted ridicule on social media, as users noted that the Arabic word for Palestine is “Falasteen”.
He also clashed with Facebook after posting that he would “prefer it” if all Muslims left Israel and suggested “avenging the deaths” of two Israeli soldiers who were killed by Palestinian gunmen.
When the posts were deleted by moderators, Mr Netanyahu republished them and criticised the social media giant as “thought police”. He was then banned from the website for 24 hours.
He has also been criticised over a tape recording in which he was heard making disparaging comments about women, boasting to friends about soliciting prostitutes and soliciting cash from the son of a prominent Israeli tycoon.
Yair has also stoked diplomatic strife between Israel and Turkey when he published an image on Instagram last year reading “Fuck Turkey”.
His father has been charged with bribery, fraud and breach of trust, but has secured the support of his party, Likud, ahead of Israel’s unprecedented third election in 12 months.
