I firmly believe that Palestine has the right to defend itself but can we seriously just stop pretending anti-Semitism magically disappeared after the Holocaust? First of all, Jews pointing out Anti-Semitism isn’t some recent thing- it’s just that everyone-including most progressives- other than Jews ignores it. Being critical of Israel without being Anti-Semitic is completely possible, but stop pretending the anti-Israel movement is never Anti-Semitic. Fuck off with this weird Oppression Olympics that assumes Jews in Diaspora don’t experience violence. The oppression of Palestinians and of Jews worldwide is not mutually exclusive. Of course Jews are sticking up for ourselves and calling out anti-Semitism because if we don’t, nobody else will. Zionism literally exists because of anti-Semitic shit like this.
Shit like this is why I’m so hesitant to identify with the Free Palestinian Movement.
