Food For Thought (FFT): Is Hating Israel’s Actions A Crime?
You can publicly declare your hate of Black people, Muslims, and Immigrants without fear of being blackballed or labeled. In Trumpian politics, such labels will land you a White House position or a spot on Fox news.
Why then is hating Israel’s inhumanity a crime that results in severe consequences to your career and future?
Is it anti-Semitic to speak the truth or to oppose Israel’s activities in Palestine?
Why can’t Americans, whose freedom of speech is protected, speak unpleasant facts about Israel without being accused of anti-Semitism?
Should we watch in silence as our taxes support Israel’s war on Palestinian civilians or Israel’s occupation of Palestine while they seize property and murder the rightful owners? Soon Palestine will be extinct. It appears Palestinian Lives Don’t Matter.
Similarities exist between modern-day Israel and Nazi Germany or the apartheid of South Africa.
Does Israel’s right to exist supersede Palestinian’s right to exist?
In a Trumpian world, the truth is un-American. To oppose Israel by exposing the truth is to resist the power elite and risk severe retribution. Representative Ilhan Omar of Minnesota and Representative Rashida Tlaib of Michigan found that out when their delegation was barred from visiting West Bank (Palestine) because they support Palestine’s right to exist.
Why does Israel control access to Palestine?
Why aren’t Palestinians able to move freely in their country without Israeli approval?
To ask such questions is to risk being called anti-Semitic. A weaponized term that too often portends the end of one’s career and beginning of continual harassment. A weaponized word to silence the truth about the genocide of Palestinians and the occupation of their land.
Congress labeled the Boycott, Divestment, Sanctions (BDS movement) anti-Semitic, but are they?
Is calling out the atrocities of Israel a crime?
What do you think?
Perhaps this fear to act stems from the repeated ridiculous warning that criticizing Israel is the equivalent of “anti-Semitism.” In fact, it is the Palestinians who are the Semites. Those behind the political claims that Palestine is theirs, are Zionists who have used the Star of David and posed as Semites in order to achieve their goals.
