Arabs Are Like Cattle

December 22, 2008

Vulgar Marxism brought this story to my attention. Here’s the disturbing part:

“An Israeli court has acquitted Julian Soufir despite confessing to the murder of the Arab Jerusalemite Tayseer Karki …. Soufir, a Jew who carries Israeli and French citizenships, said on his arrest that he did not feel guilty because he believed Arabs were like cattle and that he was slaughtering one.”

Well, if the courts couldn’t get him, maybe PETA will.

    I don’t think you should make light of death of another human being or the goals of PETA by making such wry comments.

    It’s not clear that “acquittal” is really the best description of what happened in court last week. There is a legal process under way to determine whether Soufir is competent to stand trial, and at a district court hearing, a judge turned down the prosecution’s motion to have Soufir re-evaluated by a psychiatrist. It’s a setback for the prosecution, but it doesn’t sound like an acquittal to me.

    Nathan, it appears you’re right. I need to check my sources more carefully.

    I wonder if he was declared “legally insane” simply because he thought of Arabs like cattle. Would that be a good thing or a bad thing?
