I just opened my Facebook page, and I see one of my friends sharing a photo of Channel 2 Newsstatus. The status is: “Jordan: at least 14 killed and 37 wounded in a bus accident near Allenby bridge crossing.”
The following comments were posted below the status by people:
[free translation from Hebrew]
v Kululululu I couldn’t ask for a better morning than this… just a shame there isn’t another zero at the end [referring to the number of killed an injured].
v Death to all Arabs, there is no place for an Arab in Eretz Israel. Maybe this sounds terrible to some people from North of Tel Aviv, but they also don’t deserve to live in this state. And yes, I am a proud racist, proud of my country and the soldiers protecting it.
v Arabushim [a derogatory word for Arabs] – feel free to die, I don’t mind.
v A pleasure, such a morning, big happiness, and if anybody has a problem with it is free to change countries because this is the country of the Jews, one people for all.
v To all the leftists, you know what? I am h a p p y! There’s no happier person than me about what happened to the Jordanians… and I give you my word… that if, God forbid, this happened to us, and they published it for example on the news Facebook page of the Jordanians… I give you my word that all of them would write *
v Hopa… nothing like starting the Saturday with a smile.
v Arab son of a bitch die and burn Amen and get cancer.
v 14 people?????? But they are animals!
v What happiness, a few Arabs less, it’s a shame that only 14.
v Today is already beginning good!!!!
v For every terrorist that died, an Israeli lives.
v Wish for more such accidents Amen.
v Not-pleasant, not-terrible.
By the time I write this, I found the original status with the picture of the overturned bus. There are more than 700 comments by now on the status, and most of them are similar to the ones I translated above.
You can read about the accident in English on YNET: "17 Palestinians Killed in Bus Crash."
I feel sick. I feel sick that when I walk outside of my home tomorrow morning, I will probably pass by these very same people.
