Apology from Yochanan Gordon

Yochanan-Gordon-medium I never intended to call to harm any people although my words may have conveyed that message.

I wish to express deep regret and beg forgiveness for an article I authored which was posted on 5TJT.com, Times of Israel and was tweeted and shared the world over.

I never intended to call to harm any people although my words may have conveyed that message.

With that said I pray and hope for a quick peaceful end to the hostilities and that all people learn to coexist with each other in creating a better world for us all.

    Maybe the best thing you can do now would be to write an article about how fighting violence with violence will lead, inevitably, to more violence, showing that the whole approach is flawed at a fundamental level. Maybe, in some way you didn’t understand or articulate well, that was what you were really getting at the whole time.

    “I never intended to call to harm any people although my words may have conveyed that message.”

    “I will conclude with a question for all the humanitarians out there. Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu clearly stated at the outset of this incursion that his objective is to restore a sustainable quiet for the citizens of Israel. We have already established that it is the responsibility of every government to ensure the safety and security of its people. If political leaders and military experts determine that the only way to achieve its goal of sustaining quiet is through genocide is it then permissible to achieve those responsible goals?”

    “I never intended to call to harm any people although my words may have conveyed that message.”

    Look more closely, and see if you can determine your true intention. You seem to be presenting yourself as a genocidal bully, a coward and a hypocrite, or at the very least a child whose arrogance far out-weighs his experience. Is that your…

    That you would even THINK such a thing – let alone write it – is frightening. You are so full of hate that you are no better than those you would like to see cease to exist.

    Yochanan Gordon, your apology is a lie; you are not better than your current enemy, nor your past ones. You called for genocide, pure and simple; don’t try to deny it or backtrack to save your worthless reputation. You berate your enemy for wanting your destruction, yet you call for theirs. Thus you are the same. Just accept it and admit it. You are all the same…which is ironic, since that should mean you ought to get along, eh? How about that? Instead of inciting violence, why not consider being a sincere advocate for peace, instead of making things worse…which you did for publicity.

    What a hollow apology. Your article left no doubt that you thought genocide was acceptable. Here’s just one example: ‘What other way then is there to deal with an enemy of this nature other than obliterate them completely?’ It was also racist towards Palestinians. Have you been taking lessons in writing from Mein Kampf? You are a disgusting man and it’s only a matter of time before hateful people like you are defeated (peacefully). Shame on you!

    Well congratulations, because you were cited on CNN by a Hamas spokesman who used your words to squirm out of his own, regarding Jews using Christian blood in their matzas.
