In a show of solidarity with Israel, many American companies are letting go of employees demonstrating a disdain for the Holy Land.
Just recently, the editor-in-chief of the science journal, “eLife,” was fired after sharing an article on X, formerly known as Twitter, ridiculing Israel’s treatment of the Palestinian people during its war against Hamas, a terrorist organization.
Michael Eisen recently announced on X that he was let go by eLife for sharing a satirical article from The Onion and praising its condemnation of Israel in the Jewish State’s war against Hamas.
On X, Eisen wrote, “I have been informed that I am being replaced as the Editor of @eLife for retweeting a @TheOnion piece that calls out indifference to the lives of Palestinian civilians.”

Eisen shared the article from The Onion titled. “Dying Gazans Criticized For Not Using Last Words To Condemn Hamas,” as reported by Fox News.
“The Onion speaks with more courage, insight and moral clarity than the leaders of every academic institution put together. I wish there were a @TheOnion university,” Eisen wrote in the same post.
A day after sharing the article, Eisen clarified that although he believes Hamas’ attack on Israel was vile, he was “horrified” by the treatment of Palestinians by Israelis.
“Every sane person on Earth is horrified and traumatized by what Hamas did and wants it to never happen again. All the more so as a Jew with Israeli family. But I am also horrified by the collective punishment already being meted out on Gazans, and the worse that is about to come,” Eisen clarified.

Eisen later walked back his praise of The Onion’s article, saying, “The Onion is not making light of this situation. And nor am I. These articles are using satire to make a deadly serious point about this horrific tragedy.”
Israel has the right to protect itself. Hamas brutally invaded the Holy Land on Oct. 7, 2023. In an act of decency separating the Holy Land from the terrorists, Israel warned the Palestinian people in Gaza to flee south before it launched its potential invasion of the area.
