While much of the world grieved for Kayla Mueller, the American aid worker killed last week while hostage of the Islamic State, one US blogger took the occasion to decry the humanitarian as a “Jew-hating, anti-Israel bitch."
Writing on her website on Wednesday, Debbie Schlussel penned a piece on the “dead ISIS hostage” in which she quipped, "No tears for the newly-departed Kayla Mueller," before calling the 26-year-old a "Jew-hating, anti-Israel piece of crap who worked with HAMAS and helped Palestinians harass Israeli soldiers and block them from doing their job of keeping Islamic terrorists out of Israel."
She continued: "I have no sympathy for any of these “American” (in name only) hostages of ISIS. And my attitude when I hear they’ve been snuffed out is, so sad, too bad." Schlussel scoffed at Mueller's humanitarian work in the "so-called 'West Bank'", while calling her death "poetic justice."
Mueller, who had been held by militants since her capture in 2013, was working on the Syria-Turkey border helping displaced refugees when she was taken.
