“The Fools Should Get a Stick in Their Heads”

On Tuesday, the US government confirmed the death of 26-year-old humanitarian aid worker Kayla Mueller, who was held in captivity of Islamic State. In past years Mueller was active in the Palestinian territories and Israel, as an International Solidarity Movement (ISM) activist.

Dr. Guy Bechor is the head of the Middle East Division at the Lauder School of Government in IDC Herzliya. Here is what he thinks of her death: Screen Shot 2015-02-12 at 10.49.46 AM

“‘The wise understand the hint, the fools should get a stick in their heads’ : That young American, Kayla Mueller (Jewish?) who was kidnapped by ISIL…was a familiar figure in these part of the world: hostile to Israel and supports the ‘Palestinians’. She demonstrated in Bili’n, Sheikh Jarrah and at checkpoints – slandering Israel around the world. She was a member in anti-Israel groups such as ISM. Like other blind people, “illusion beggars,” she did not realize how she had been used. By the way, before he was killed, she wasn’t kept as a hostage, but was granted as a booty to an ISIL commander…About these kind of stupid people, it was said: ‘(God) take the brain out of the ones he wants to get rid of.’  Please, share this, as the mainstream media will not publish this truth.”

 Dr. Bechor is not alone. Here are some more reactions Israelis shared on social media after Mueller’s death was confirmed:
