On the difficulty of posting a comment on Al Jazeera

I just saw a stupid article in Al Jizz, once again trying to make Jews look like Nazis and Gazans look like Jews.

So I tried to write a quick comment:
Genocide? Are you crazy?

Last I checked, Gaza's population was still increasing.

I read the Palestinian Arab press daily and have yet to find a single example of a person who starved to death. In fact, the UNDP director just stated explicitly that "This is not a humanitarian crisis. It's an economic crisis, a political crisis, but it's not a humanitarian crisis. People aren't starving."

Before you throw around terms like "genocide" make sure you have a clue what the word actually means. More Jews were killed daily during the Holocaust than Palestinian Arabs that have been killed in years. To even hint at equating the two shows nothing but pure anti-semitism.
Al Jazeera's algorithm rejected the posting because it contained the following words:
genocide crazy arab undp starving before jews arabs
It looks like commenters can't even use words that Al Jazeera's columnists use!
