Google is, yet again, showing where they stand on moral issues and who gets better treatment at the company based on who they will fire and who they won’t.

The most recent example comes from Google’s refusal to fire a man named Kamau Bobb. Bobb was head of diversity strategy at the company and was discovered recently that back in 2007 he wrote a post titled “If I Were a Jew” wherein he effectively laid out how Jewish people should view Israel’s conflicts with various people in the Middle East.

It wasn’t exactly kind as the Washington Free Beacon pointed out:

“If I were a Jew I would be concerned about my insatiable appetite for war and killing in defense of myself,” he wrote in a Nov. 30, 2007, post on his personal blog, where he was still actively publishing as recently as April 2021. “Self defense is undoubtedly an instinct, but I would be afraid of my increasing insensitivity to the suffering [of] others.” The blog features commentary from Bobb on a wide range of issues, including racial equality, U.S. politics, and education policy.

He wrote that the Jewish people’s suffering, including that of the Holocaust, should make them uneasy about attacking other nations or punishing them as a defensive measure:

“I don’t know how I would reconcile that identity with the behavior of fundamentalist Jewish extremists or of Israel as a nation. The details would confuse me. I wouldn’t understand those who suggest that bombing Lebanon, slaughtering Lebanese people and largely destroying Beirut in retaliation for the capture of a few soldiers is justified,” he wrote.

“I wouldn’t understand the notion of collective punishment, cutting off gas, electricity and water from residents in Gaza because they are attacking Israel who is fighting against them. It would be unconscionable to me to watch Israeli tanks donning the Star of David rumbling through Ramallah destroying buildings and breaking the glass,” he wrote.

Bobb doesn’t go too far into the details about the attacks Israel endures at the hands of its neighbors on a constant basis, and very few people who are anti-Israel
