‘We cannot stand by and watch Israel commit atrocities,’ she wrote on X
Washington Post opinion columnist Karen Attiah was criticized on social media over a column published Friday in which she argued that, “we cannot stand band watch Israel commit atrocities.”
Attiah wrote that Palestinians were “rightfully” pointing out “that their own pain and deaths under the actions of the Israeli state have been ignored for years” following Hamas’ unprecedented terrorist attack against Israel.
She argued that the U.S. can’t let Israel retaliate and was criticized by many on X, formerly known as Twitter.
“It is also the reason the United States cannot stand by and allow Israel to carry out the collective punishment it has declared it will exact. It cannot stand by as Israeli officials engage in genocidal language and describe genocidal intent against Palestinians for the actions of Hamas,” Attiah wrote.
The Spectator’s Stephen Miller responded with a screenshot of one post noting Hamas’ brutal attack against Israelis.
“Every single protest you’re seeing is because Hamas executed, raped, tortured, beheaded and kidnapped over a thousand innocent Jews including children and the elderly,” he wrote.
Attiah wrote that the attacks were “horrific” further down in her column.
“Hamas’s attack was horrific. To many of my Jewish friends, it represents a nightmare scenario,” she wrote, adding that international human rights laws were “apparently being ignored by state and non-state actors alike.”
