They've tempered that slightly, I'm positive when I first read that story they simply referred to it (repeatedly) as her "racist tweet".

Blaming the Sydney attack on Palestinians and their supporters (in the middle of a genocide) is pretty sick to say the least.

Here she is whipping up more hatred against Palestinians:

"We now know that there was a pregnant woman, who had her belly cut open and the baby was removed from her stomach and beheaded in front of her. There's videos of this. ... I know many people who have seen it. These videos are in existence."

History will judge her as a pernicious propagandist for Zionism.
