Netanyahu’s Social Media Director Reportedly Suspended

JewishPress Logo

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s social media chief was reportedly suspended for making inappropriate statements on his personal Facebook page.

Daniel Seaman, the prime minister’s director for interactive media, suggested that Palestinians who commemorate the Nakba, an Arabic word referring to the “catastrophe” that is Israel’s victory in the 1948 war, may want to reflect on their “stupidity.” Seaman also wrote he was “sick” of commemorations for the victims of the nuclear bombs dropped in Japan during World War II because “you reap what you sow.”

Israeli media quoted unnamed officials Thursday as saying that Seaman was suspended from his post. A statement from the government reported in the Jerusalem Post said only that Seaman was asked to “refrain from making such statements.”

    Well, honesty may be an old-fashioned virtue, but it's one I, for one, would like to see more of in government. And on his private Facebook page? What the heck is the problem? It isn't as if he was suggesting that brutal murderes be released from prison or stating he was in favor of throwing Jews out of their homes, or digging them up out of their graves…

  2. Beth Wright says:

    Personal statements need to stay out of the political spectrum, even if they are right..our reporters do that here in America, and WE the people really do not care what their Opinion is….

  3. Good, opinions liberty, private or not is our liberty right, this corrupt Israeli goverment must get out inmediately.
