On August 1 the Times of Israel published a blog entry (reproduced in full below) by one Yochanan Gordon that essentially justified and all but called for the extermination of Palestinians.
The blog ultimately asked to following question of readers:
If political leaders and military experts determine that the only way to achieve its goal of sustaining quiet is through genocide is it then permissible to achieve those responsible goals?
It immediately sparked outrage on social media and was promptly withdrawn by the Times of Israel who called ita “damnable and ignorant” breach of trust regarding their open blogging editorial policy. They also reported that the author issued a public apology as well.
Note: Below is the entire original “Times of Israel” blog entry, ’When Genocide Is Permissible’ that was published on August 1 then retracted.
