Maurice Blackburn employment lawyer and high-profile progressive Jew Josh Bornstein got a rude awakening this morning, when his Twitter feed lit up with people from all around the world decrying him as a racist.

An opinion piece was published in the Times of Israel last night bearing Bornstein's byline, image and description. Much of the piece, since deleted, is too objectionable to be quoted. It called on Israeli Jews to massacre Palestinians, as they were "subhuman beasts and vermin" who were put on earth only to serve the people of Israel. It argued these views were sanctioned by Jewish scripture.
