Pro-Hamas ‘journalist’ from Gaza, who mocked murder of Israeli children and was endorsed by Mohammed Zubair, killed in air strike

In a bid to shield Hamas, Refaat Al-Areer was seen claiming that Israel supposedly killed its own civilians to 'implicate' the Islamic terror outfit.

Amid the ongoing Israel-Hamas war, a controversial ‘journalist’ named Refaat Al-Areer was reportedly killed in an airstrike in Gaza on Thursday (7th December). During his lifetime, Refaat was known for peddling pro-Hamas propaganda and disseminating anti-Semitic tropes.

Following his death, Alt News co-founder Mohammed Zubair tried to garner sympathy for Refaat and demonise the State of Israel. The dubious ‘fact checker’ also made no references to the tweets and misleading claims of the deceased ‘journalist’.

Mohammed Zubair retweeted an emotional post of Refaat Al-Areer and attempted to pass him off as an ‘academic’ resisting the supposed ‘atrocities’ of the Jewish State. While sharing a recent interview of the ‘journalist’, Zubair wrote, “Refaat Al-Areer was killed by Israel today.”

The Gaza-based Refaat Al-Areer had a history of mocking the death of Israeli civilians. On 29th October, a journalist named Dovid Efune reported that Hamas terrorists brutally murdered a Jewish child. “A baby was found in an oven, baked to death by Hamas terrorists…”he tweeted.

Without any visible semblance of sensitivity, Refaat inquired (archive), “With or Without baking powder.” This was not the first time that he had brazenly displayed his anti-Semitism.

He had posted multiple tweets comparing Israel with Nazi Germany, which killed 6 million Jews. “Hitler is as peaceful as any Israeli leader,” he said in one tweet.

“Zionism and nazism are two cheeks of the same dirty arse,” Refaat Al-Areer openly peddled anti-Semitic tropes.

During his lifetime, the controversial ‘journalist’ was seen actively eulogising Hamas and disseminating its falsehoods.

In a bid to shield Hamas, Refaat Al-Areer was seen claiming that Israel killed its own civilians to ‘implicate’ the Islamic terror outfit.

He was seen defending the atrocities of Hamas and sarcastically blaming Israel for ‘provoking’ the terrorists.

Despite the anti-Semitic antics of the ‘journalist’, he was featured by The New York Times as a ‘Gaza poetry Professor.’

Refaat Al-Areer, who was reportedly killed in an airstrike, has now found support from the likes of ‘journalist’ Rana Ayyub.
