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.”JTA
