Because he was upset about Palestine…

From The JC:

A student who tweeted “just gas them all” to a Jewish teenager has admitted sending racially aggravated messages.

Alexander Paul Holloway, 19, sent antisemitic tweets because he “didn’t like what Israel was doing in Palestine”, Chester Magistrates Court has heard.

Alison Warburton, prosecuting, said: “The victim accessed their Twitter account and noticed a message from the defendant that said ‘Jews are vile’.”

On December 5, Holloway posted a photograph of a Jewish man with a caption reading “this creature should be gassed.” He then said to “just gas them all” with the victim “in there as well.”

The court heard that Holloway had been drinking with a friend when he posted the messages.

Mrs Warburton said: “Mr Holloway said he had watched history programmes on television and didn’t like what Israel was doing in Palestine.”
