Jewish Hardliner Tweets “Lame” in Response to Iran “Attack”



One of Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s key allies has been accused of damaging Israel with just one word, after making a social media post about an alleged strike on an Iranian airfield. 

Iran has brushed off multiple reports of explosions in the skies over Isfahan on Friday, while West Jerusalem declined to comment. Israeli National Security Minister Itamar Ben-Gvir, however, was not impressed by his country’s response.

“Lame,” he posted on X (formerly Twitter) in Hebrew, suggesting not only that Israel was behind the strike but that it had been ineffective.

The literal translation is “scarecrow.” It’s a slang term everyone is translating as “lame.”

“Never before has a minister done such heavy damage to the country’s security, its image, and its international status,” opposition leader Yair Lapid responded. “In an unforgivable tweet of one word, Ben Gvir managed to sneer and shame Israel from Tehran to Washington.”

Israeli Channel 12 quoted unnamed government officials close to Netanyahu as calling Ben-Gvir “childish and irrelevant to any discussion,” but also accusing him of damaging Israel’s national security.

He may as well be working for the enemy,” wrote podcaster Shaiel Ben-Ephraim, who pointed out that Iranian media have been citing Ben-Gvir’s tweet to mock Israel.

Iran’s Tasnim news agency had indeed quoted the minister’s social media post, noting that “even Israeli officials are laughing at them.”

I don’t appreciate this Jew.

But I appreciate people having good humor.

It’s kind of hilarious to be trolling Bibi and the entire government. Getting the government to respond by calling him a threat to national security is so funny.

Ben-Gvir is both unhinged and functional, so I imagine he must be generally hilarious. Those things really always go together, in my opinion. Well, someone can potentially be funny without being unhinged (though it’s probably difficult). But someone can’t be both unhinged and functional without being hilarious.

Just look at this Jew’s face.

You know he’s saying some fucked up hilarious shit constantly.

NB4: Yes, I do consider myself “unhinged but functional.” This is a state similar to being a “functional alcoholic” (which I also am).

Anyway, this confirms everything I wrote in calling this out as a goofy hoax designed to create headlines.
