Here’s the ad that the Emergency Committee for Israel, Bill Kristol’s right-wing Israel activism group, bought in today’s New York Times.

First, I am shocked and saddened to hear that CAP, an organization I worked for for two years, is anti-Israel, though it does explain the mandatory jihadi-video-watching meetings that took place every Friday.

Second, here’s how Rachel Abrams, a Committee board member, commemorated the prisoner swap that led to the release of Israeli soldier Gilad Shalit, held for years by Palestinian militants, back in October:

Celebrate, Israel, with all the joyous gratitude that fills your hearts, as we all do along with you.

Then round up his captors, the slaughtering, death-worshiping, innocent-butchering, child-sacrificing savages who dip their hands in blood and use women—those who aren’t strapping bombs to their own devils’ spawn and sending them out to meet their seventy-two virgins by taking the lives of the school-bus-riding, heart-drawing, Transformer-doodling, homework-losing children of Others—and their offspring—those who haven’t already been pimped out by their mothers to the murder god—as shields, hiding behind their burkas and cradles like the unmanned animals they are, and throw them not into your prisons, where they can bide until they’re traded by the thousands for another child of Israel, but into the sea, to float there, food for sharks, stargazers, and whatever other oceanic carnivores God has put there for the purpose.

So yeah.
