The most ignorant or deliberately offensive tweet ever? It's @Wotsit4

 wotsit4 (@wotsit4) tweeted at 0:31 PM on Mon, Sep 30, 2013:
@notasheepagoat were it not for zionists there'd be no Middle East problem

So is @wotsit4 someone with no knowledge of the thousand plus years of enmity between Shia and Sunni, the various and many different types of sectarian fighting amongst Muslims in the Middle East or indeed any cognisance of the realities of Middle East affairs, or is @wotsit4 someone with a real problem with Israel and the desire to blame the Jews for everything.

Either way not my sort of person.

You won't be surprised to learn that I have yet to receive a reply from @wotsit4 to my question, maybe he's ashamed of his ignorance or embarrassed for having his prejudices uncovered.

Inorant? Probably. Most deliberately offensive? Probably not.

If somebody told me that all the problems in Afghanistan was down to the British Empire, I would probably give it very little thought.
