These pics went viral last week, the female version of a "charming cheeky chappy" posing with anti Islam groups disarming everyone with her smile and cheek.

Now, a week later, another side to her comes out and her antisemitic nature has been exposed.

In one tweet dating from November 2012, she wrote: "Hitler didn't kill all the Jews, he left some. So we know why he was killing them."

And in another Facebook post from March 2014, she used an expletive to describe Jews before adding: "I hate them so much."

So, what's next for Ms Belkhiri?

It's all good. Contempt and hate for Jews is fine from Muslims. To believe otherwise is Islamaphobic.

The new norm is to "TOLERATE" (in other words turn a blind eye) to any systemic bigotry or violent behavior from European Muslims than it is to actually stand up for liberal values like Intellectualism, Secularism, Women's rights, Gay rights, and Jewish rights.

Islamaphobia is wrong. Anti-semitism is wrong.

your statement is clearly false indicated by the backlash she received

and vilifying all Muslims on her words is equally wrong

It would be interesting for me to know who the backlash came from.

well it should come from everybody and her face is all over the place and she has done a lot of back peddling and it inflamed rather than molified

Looking at one of the linked articles, I can see why.

I don't have any time for smug trouble makers like her and I don't buy for a minute that she doesn't still hold anti semite views.

The again I find all bigotry and hatred directed an an entire people heinous, no matter what race, ethnicity, religion or national origin they may be.

So then why tolerate it? Do you think that Tolerance of Muslim Ideology is more important than Standing up for fundamental Liberal values like Women's rights, Secularism, and Gay rights?

Tolerate what? I said an ENTIRE people which means I don't paint everyone with the same brush no matter who they might be and I make absolutely NO apologies for that.

I fully support liberal values like womens rights, secularism and gay rights. I despise Islamic Extremists, all extremists for that matter and condemn their repulsive actions.

A reasoned and rational response is not what they are after; You have to hate back in similar fashion to appease the usual suspects.

A reasoned and rational response is exactly what I am after, but I never seem to get one.

Islam is an ideology and should be open to the same type of critique that any other ideology that humans are indoctrinated with are open to. Why do we allow the critique of Socialists, Christians, White Supremacists and every other ideology out there except for Islam. I think its due to the the more prevalent form of Islamaphobia in Europe right now which is the fear of speaking out against Islam (in a rational way) lest you be targeted by extremists or ostracized for speaking your mind.

I am not advocating any right wing racial ideology here. I actually consider myself to be quite liberal but to consider myself liberal I believe in having the courage to speak out against indoctrinating individuals with a harmful ideology that undermines the very liberal ideas that I want to preserve. (Secularism, Women's rights, Gay and Lesbian rights and Intellectualism)

After these and other statements emerged, Ms Belkhiri deleted all her social media accounts. As the backlash against Ms Belkhiri grew, a meme appeared showing the now-famous picture of her snapping her selfie but with Jewish concentration camp prisoners and scenes of various terror attacks photoshopped in place of the line of protesters.

On Saturday, Ms Belkhiri returned to Twitter seemingly seeking to justify her anti-Semitic remarks.
"My opinion many years ago was meant on the zionist back then, that spread hate instead of love so to all the other jews peace be upon you!" she wrote as well as retweeting a YouTube video in which two friends dressed as an Orthodox Jew and a Muslim in Arabic clothes walk through New York to test the public's reaction.
However, for many of those who responded to her tweet, this attempted justification has, if anything, compounded the original offence.

From the same article - unless by backlash you want some 12th century reaction or treatment for her?

I'm sure it sounded better in context.

Well initially, she tried denying it by saying her tweets were photoshopped. Her subsequent explanation was that it wasn't all Jews she hated, just Zionists. She likes Jews who agree with her though.

Yeah, I feel for her. There's two things I myself really hate, racism and blacks in my bar. :mrgreen:

In fact blacks with attitudes are even worse.:2razz:

Mind you, young as she is, her frontal lobes cannot have formed out completely yet. If they had she'd be neither tweeting at all nor frequenting FB or any other social media.
