Opposing Israeli Policy Does Not Make One a "Self-Hating Jew"
A huge anti-war protest is being held tonight by Jews in Tel Aviv:
(Jews and Palestinians have been holding anti-war protests throughout Israel, but the mainstream media has refused to cover them.)
Jews also protested the Gaza war in New York City yesterday:
Anti-war protests have also been held in other cities throughout the world.
Indeed, many Jews oppose Israeli treatment of the Palestinians:
- Well-known sports writer Dave Zirin tweets: "Israel's actions are antithetical to everything I was taught in Hebrew School, and yet they did this in my name. Silence isn't an option."
Postscript: Many devoutly religious Jews oppose Zionism. So opposing an Israeli policy does not make anti-Semitic … or a "self-hating Jew".
And we salute Israelis protesting against the war, especially since dissent may subject them to death threats.
