Tragic as the fate of Italian ISM activist was, his body still being warm, his colleagues are already trying to extract some meager political benefit out of this senseless and typically cowardly act.
Two examples only: the histrionics of Salem News - a ravingly anti-Zionist (and frequently simply anti-Jewish) e-rag:
You will note in the video below that Ken O'Keefe, our writer and diehard activist friend in Gaza, does not believe or at least did not, that any Palestinian could be responsible for Vik's death. ... The perpetrators of this crime Ken suggests, were Zionist agents of Israel.It may be worth your while to watch the embedded clip with the "diehard activist" literally spraying spit when talking about the Zionist entity.
Another outstanding example will be (who but) Mondoweiss whose owners have chosen to host someone named Refaat Alareer with this brilliant turn of speech:
The timing, which comes days before Flotilla II, and the irreparable damage the crime did to Gaza and the Palestinians tell of the Israeli Mossad hand lurking behind the doers.And there is more, much more of this crap in the muddy waters of the Internet. If you want to see it, of course.
