If you published a blog post calling for Israel to commit genocide, it’s probably a good idea to apologize in the most sincere and heartfelt manner possible. Yochanan Gordon did the former and then he tried, I guess, to do the latter:
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.
That’s a terrible apology after a terrible, terrible blog post.
If you titled your blog post “When Genocide Is Permissible,” it’s pretty hard to claim that you “never intended to call to harm any people.” That’s basically exactly what you intended.
