Embattled MSNBC host Joy Reid once promoted the conspiracy theory that “Jewish Jihadists” were responsible for Islamic terrorism, according to newly discovered screenshots obtained by The Daily Wire.
Screenshots from a post dated July 21, 2006, show that “JReid” blamed Jews in Israel for Islamic terrorism and appeared to go as far as justifying terrorism against Israel. The post states:
The bottom line now is the same as it has always been: you cannot kill enough of your enemies to make the people of the Muslim world accept, respect, or permit themselves to be dominated by you. Eventually, the occupied will get even. Eventually, the people you consider terrorists will fight you hard enough, and long enough, that the people they say they are fighting for believe them, far more than they believe you. And then the people you’re bombing in the name of fighting terrorism, will hate you so much, they’ll take up arms with your “terrorists” — or look the other way as they move in next door — in order to see harm done to you.
Reid continued by saying that terrorism is not a simple “black and white equation,” but rather a symptom of a disease that is “transmitted by colonialism, resource greed, racism, (and Zionism)…” It is not clear why Reid wrote “and Zionism” in parenthesis.
Reid later made a highly inflammatory statement about the Jewish people, writing: “…the Jewish jihadists quit the U.S. to suit up in Tel Aviv…”
The words “Jewish jihadists” appear to have been hyperlinked to an external website which cannot be viewed since Reid’s posts are no longer available on The Internet Archive.
