From Israelly Cool:
There seems to be a fair bit of waffle coming out of Belgium these days (not the tasty kind), and now there is more – a minister’s adviser on tolerance being outed as rather intolerant.
A Belgian official who compared Israel to Nazi Germany and the Islamic State is no longer employed as a minister’s adviser on tolerance.Normally when I hear of these stories, I race to social media to look for the offending tweets and posts, only to find they have been deleted. And this seems to be the case, with the ones that seem to have landed him in trouble.
Youssef Kobo, the adviser on diversity for the minister in charge of equal opportunity in the regional government of Brussels, offered to resign after finding he could no longer fulfill his duties, a ministry spokesperson told the HLN news website on Monday.
Last month, Kobo apologized for his vitriol against Israel, which he said was a modern Nazi Germany and “an identical twin” of the Islamic State terrorist group. [...]
But perhaps surprisingly, he has left up many other disgusting tweets, especially those in which he makes disgusting Holocaust comparisons.
There’s also this one in which he seems indifferent to the plight of the Jews fleeing the Holocaust.
And another one in which he compares us to ISIS.
So in addition to being a hatemonger, Kobo just doesn’t seem particularly smart. Unless he deliberately left up those tweets because he really is not contrite.
