Planned protest outside Cambridge Synagogue to “encourage” local Jews to take a stance on Gaza

To target Diaspora Jews with this, as if they have ANYTHING to do with Israeli policy, is an inherently antisemitic act. Diaspora Jews have nothing to do with anything Israel does, because they are not citizens of Israel, do not live in Israel, and do not vote in Israel, any more than any other citizen of any other country does.
It doesn’t matter if no one there shouts slurs, or has any “questionable” signs, the fact that they are specifically targeting JEWS with this action shows they cannot distinguish between policies of a country, and an ethnoreligious minority.
This is the kind of shit that makes Jews worldwide feel targeted and unsafe. And it’s because we are being targeted. "Our visible silence points to guilt, forgiving, and forgetting" - no, it points to your deliberate targeting of an ethnic minority based on the fact that they share ethnic ties to a country they don’t actually have anything to do with.
This is shitty activism.

antisemitism doesnt get a pass just because you are *insert oppressed identity here*

antisemitism doesnt get a pass PERIOD

Pittsburgh’s first (and only) female and Jewish mayor has passed away. Rest in peace and thank you for all that you have done for the city, and even though I wasn’t even born when you were mayor, all of the important things you did are still here and will always be remembered.

Nothing positive he ever did in his life can ever count for anything considering the millions of innocent dead people. Shocking, I know.

  • kabbalah is a specifically jewish religious tradition. dont practice it if youre…

you probably live in america have you seen what is going on in europe? what the "human rights defendors" are shouting?? i just cant believe hoe people are spitting on the face of the pople who new what is like to be persecuted and (unlike you) said NEVER AGAIN take it from me a real subhuman and remember to shout loud "HAMAS HAMAS, JEWS TO THE GAS!!!" —by Anonymous

you must be the same person in the previous message and i imagine you have not been following me for a long time. have you even looked through my blog? have you seen what i post? i am 1000% aware of what is happening in Europe and it is disgusting. European antisemitism is very scary and very harmful to all the jews who live there. i do live in america so i don’t face the same level of antisemitism that many other jews face. but i have faced it, regardless of my stance on israel or geographical location. instead of anonymously sending me messages that clearly show you haven’t taken the time to read what i post, try going through my blog. i say it all the time, this blog was never meant to be about israel or palestine, but the experiences as jews – but given what has been happening how can i remain silent? me speaking out against israel is equivalent to saying “gas the jews”? i mean, come on.

i dont understand your need to prove yourself as a "good jew" by hating israel. for me you are the worst, people escaped gas chambers to build a country where jews wont be a minority, where jews wont have to apologize for their culture and religion, but then there are people like you who have to show that "im a different jew" "im a good jew not like those blood thirsty subhumans you normally see" good luck with that, people like you are worst than neo nazis (btw im a jew if youre wondering) —by Anonymous

if you’ve been following my blog for a good amount of time you would know i am against the “good jew” argument. i do not speak out against israel as a jew, but as a human being. what’s going on in israel is disgusting and i think anyone would be able to see that regardless of religion. quite frankly, i am offended by this message as i have worked to try to eliminate the “good jew bad jew” notion that occurs on tumblr. yes, jews need a homeland, somewhere we can preserve our cultures, traditions, and people; but as of now i do not support israel or it’s actions. how can you attack me for that? the people who survived the holocaust wanted a place where they could be free from the horrors they faced; but modern israel just isn’t ideal for anyone. how can jews of israel live in peace knowing their country is attacking and killing thousands of people? i don’t understand.

princeowl:

stop saying ‘not all jews support israel’ in reaction to antisemitic violence

by saying that you’re implying that jews that do support israel deserve to be subjected to antisemitism

enough.

fegeleh:

actual White people with a capital W. only white people.

white people have systematically categorized jews as non-white insofar as our non-white identity serves them

white people have also systematically given white-passing jews conditional access to Whiteness when it serves them: to isolate…

so jealous of people who get to backpack across europe. i wouldn’t even attempt that.

At first I thought this was a joke. A town called Death to Jews? No way. Well, there really is.

that israel-truth blog is a sack of shit but i cannot get over how they were like, “where, by the way, has this been ‘reported.”

like it was reported in several sources!! google is real! google is your friend! don’t ask for the sources as if they don’t exist when they’re out there. they acted like no one would be able to give them some sources and they’d be able to tear down their argument. i hope they see that i gave them a pretty good source. you can’t ignore the news and facts just to maintain your belief that israel is perfect and nothing bad could ever be reported about it!

As a black orthodox christian, I used to support Israel until I read about Ethiopian Jews being sterilised and discriminated against. Sudanese refugees (who escaped from the genocide in Darfur) are attacked and dehumanised. And why are there 'Jewish only' buses and roads which prohibit Palestinians? Ya'll are inhumane. There will be justice at the end of the day. —by Anonymous

indiajadevh:

Yep. We are totally inhuman. What you just said is a load of crap.

what the anon said was good until they basically said all jews are inhumane. considering the many human rights violations ISRAEL and ITS GOVERNMENT have, they are inhumane. but not all jews. (jews do not equal israel; israelis do not equal their government) BUT let’s not ignore the terrible treatment of immigrants into israel though. also, let’s not deny that some jews are given privilege over others.

What are your thoughts on Israel's ethnic cleansing? It has been reported that they do not allow Ethiopian Jewish women to reproduce and restrict the population growth of Arab Jews. —by Anonymous

israel-truth:

Wow, so not only is Israel accused of genocide as to the Palestinians, but also as to its own people.  Where, by the way, has this been “reported.”

http://www.independent.co.uk/news/world/middle-east/israel-gave-birth-control-to-ethiopian-jews-without-their-consent-8468800.html

it has been reported that israel gave Ethiopian women birth control without their consent. apparently, israel even ADMITTED to it. because of this, there was a drop in birth rates.
