The recent Israeli airstrikes in Gaza that have claimed the lives of more than 188 Palestinians has flared up the conflict once again.
As Israel shows no signs of relenting, netizens from across the globe are resorting to hate speech against Jews.
One of the major reasons for the aggression against the entire Jewish race is the conflation between Judaism and Zionism. Social media users are unable to differentiate between the two.
It is important to keep the hate for both ethnicities aside and condemn Israel’s atrocities against the Palestinians.
There are several ways that you can support the Palestinian cause by not resorting to hate speech against Jews. This because there are many Jewish, pro-Palestinian commentators who are speaking up for the cause and making a noise around the issue in cyberspace. Hence, it only makes sense to build an alliance with anyone and everyone who’s there supporting the cause of Palestine and its people.
What Palestinian supporters, particularly Muslims, can do to amplify their voices is to share their content across multiple platforms to make a wider, bigger impact. Let the unheard be heard!
And boy, some of them are doing a perfect job right now.
In this Israel-Palestinian conflict, let’s not forget the real cause, i.e., “No to Occupation, No to Settler Colonialism, No to Apartheid, No to Injustice.”
This is aggression against Israeli and not the Jewish people.
You can very much be against Israeli occupation and apartheid against Palestinians without alienating religious and secular Jews across the globe who have joined hands with Palestinians in opposing Israeli forces.
