(QNN) – Yair Netanyahu, son of the Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, used the word “idiots” to describe those who recognize the Palestinian state via a tweet on his officials Twitter account.
“Hi all the idiots that twist “Palestine”. There’s no such thing!” Yair wrote on Monday. He claimed the reason of that is because “there is even no P in Arabic,” according to him.
In a thread of tweets, Netanyahu’s son’s language seemed purely racist and a type of hate speech against not only Palestinians, but also Arabs and Muslims.
In an attempt to delegitimize the state of Palestine as an Arab country, Yair commented on a map of the Arab world, saying all Arabs are colonizers of the Middle East
Yair went on to claim a Palestinian state will never exist, and named “Israel” as the “Jewish state from the river to the sea,” a sentence that reminds us of CNN’s news presenter Marc Lamont Hill, who was fired from the international channel for referring to the Palestinian state using the same words.
Yair’s tweets’ thread was first sparked after he posted pictures of the Palestinian village of Lifta in occupied Jerusalem. The Arab, Palestinian village was ethnically cleansed by Zionist gangs in 1947-1948. Now only ruins of the village remain.
Several twitter users and Pro-Palestine activists expressed their objection to Netanyahu’s racist and full-of-hatred comments, and their support to the Palestinian state and people.
