Media said to be ignoring Jewish anti-war protests
Jews and Palestinians have been holding anti-war protests throughout Israel, but the mainstream media has refused to cover them
Jews also protested the Gaza war in New York City yesterday. Many Jews oppose Israeli treatment of the Palestinians:
Well-known sports writer Dave Zirin tweets: “Israel’s actions are antithetical to everything I was taught in Hebrew School, and yet they did this in my name. Silence isn’t an option.“
Many religious Jews oppose Zionism. So opposing an Israeli policy does not make anti-Semitic.
Many will join with Washington’s blog in saluting Israelis protesting against the war, especially since dissent may subject them to death threats, as Israel’s Public Radio International reports.
