ANALYSIS – The #antisemitism row plaguing #JeremyCorbyn isn’t about protecting #Jews – it’s about silencing any criticism of #Israel’s brutal occupation of #WestBank #Gaza #eastJerusalem. Some #Jews – by no means all – accept #Zionism. For many #Jews and #Gentiles though, Zionism is an ideology that’s hijacked the symbols and traditions of #Judaism to justify a violence against Palestinians that dates back to 1918. #Israel’s borders were established in 1948 by the #UN but those lines were the consequence of #Irgun #Haganah and #SternGang #Terrorism – tactics which are now CONDEMNED when they are used by some #Palestinian groups such as Hamas. #israel does have a right to exist. #Palestinians have rights too – their crime is have been born on land which #Zionists say was promised to them 2,000 years ago. And their tactics ever since the Balfour Declaration have been geared towards achieving that objective. After the Zionist terror gangs which were CONDEMNED by Albert Einstein came government after government whose only policy was to ethnically cleanse their historic birthright of the Palestinians. Israelis may condemn Hamas, however to the #Palestinians, Israeli leaders such as #MenachemBegin #ArielSharon #TzipiLivni #BenjaminNetanyahu are #WarCriminals who have killed their children and not faced justice the way Serbian leaders were brought to book for ethnic cleansing in Bosnia. #israel’s future as a viable and civilised state will never be resolved unless it accepts #Palestinians are human beings worthy of the same rights. It’s not #Antisemitic to say this or to criticise #israel as it occupies #palestine and kills it’s people.
