Critique of the International Jewish Anti-Zionist Network by Jay Knott (06/07/11)       ⇌ (Zionist opposition to freedom of speech)

The principles of the International Jewish Anti-Zionist Network go some way to explaining why Palestine solidarity is so weak. They oppose "Ashkenazi racism against Mizrahi Jews" and "anti-Jewish racists".

Notice how harsh it is on 'white racism', and on attitudes which divide Jews in Israel. It much more critical of white identity than it is of 'privileging Jewish voices'. Palestine solidarity doesn't mean caring if one group of Israeli Jews is 'racist' toward another. It doesn't mean taking a position on 'Holocaust denial'. Palestine solidarity has nothing negative to say about white European anti-semitism. Palestinians are being oppressed by Jewish, not white, racists.
