Anti-Zionism vs. Anti-Semitism, October 16, 2020

4th Education Webinar: Anti-Zionism vs. Anti-Semitism

📺 Check out the full recording of our 4th Education Webinar discussing "Anti-Zionism vs. Anti-Semitism", featuring: - Estee Chandler | Jewish Voice for Peace, Board of Directors - Rabbi Brant Rosen | Founding Rabbi, Tzedek Chicago - Raed Jarrar | American Muslims for Palestine, Advocacy Director - Hosted by Tarek Khalil | AMP Education Coordinator 🔵 Zionism is at the root of Palestinian oppression. In US political discourse, Anti- Zionism is oftentimes conflated with Anti-Semitism. This conflation creates confusion, mainly because these terms, which have nothing in common. Anti-Zionists oppose a nationalist, settler-colonial ideology, whereas Anti-Semites express hatred and bigotry, oftentimes resulting in governmental oppression, against Jewish people because of their religion. ⚫ Israel and its supporters deliberately attempt to conflate these terms as well. Zionism is associated with all things Israel, and since Israel is characterized as the “Jewish State,” Anti-Zionism becomes Anti-Semitism. Nothing can be further from the truth. Due to this mislabeling, individuals are demonized and condemned for opposing the oppression of the Palestinian people and standing for Palestinian human rights. 📚 The purpose of this webinar was to highlight the necessary distinctions between Anti-Zionism and Anti-Semitism and offer intellectual contextualization that will help us to understand how these terms are misused and how to properly use them. #PalestineConnectsUs
