It’s pretty hard to pick a winner in this category, especially since Ronan Farrow has already hosted a segment about Israeli/Palestinian dating during wartime, but the following may be the stupidest pro-Palestinian commentary MSNBC has broadcast on their airwaves yet:
Oh yeah, she actually said it: Israel has launched a War on Pasta! Take shelter! That’s far worse than the Republican War on Women!
This Ramen-obsessed analyst is so-called “human rights attorney” Noura Erakat — frighteningly, also an adjunct Georgetown professor — who sat down with Ronan (of course) on Monday, to spew the same kind of crap that this woman was sharing, up until she was relieved of duty. I guess unlike Rula Jebreal, Erakat was smart enough not to bash MSNBC, considering that the entire network shares the same viewpoint as her anyway.
Erakat spent most of the remainder of the segment lamenting that Israel has better weapons than Hamas, and how what’s happening in Gaza is somehow an unfair fight. She parroted John Kerry’s call for a so-called “humanitarian cease-fire,” which is shaping up to be yet another steaming pile of nothing from the Obama administration.
So Rula Jebreal is gone from the network, but this woman is just as much of an anti-Israel nut. Like I said last week, spotting anti-Semites on MSNBC is like Whack-A-Mole. Knock one down, and another pops right up in its place. I guess we should stop the futile attempt to point them all out. Apparently, our efforts would be better spent stockpiling ravioli for the coming Pastapocalypse, anyway.
