“‘Coffee’ - 9 shekel
'Coffee please' - 8 shekel
'Good Morning, may I please have some coffee' - 7 shekel”
amarielah replied to your post:the senior researcher on kurdistan at work is also…I feel the same as an Ashkenazi Jew. My grandparents and great-grandparents were driven out of every country in which they’d lived, forced to flee to places that accepted them only grudgingly. I feel intense solidarity for the plight of the Kurds.

What is this anti-Semitic Bullshit?
Zionists, defenders of Israel, and the vast majority of Jews in general take great offense at any analogy between the Nazis and Israeli state actions because people enjoy using our genocide, which they clearly do not care about and know very little of, as a sly rhetorical tool to make its survivors victims uncomfortable. It doesn’t de-legitimize Zionism for those Jews who hear it, it just shows us that non-Jews do not care about us as human beings unless they can turn our traumas into slaps in our faces. If you think that exploiting the Holocaust is okay - or even laudable - because “the Zionists did it!!!!” your activism is counterproductive, bigoted, and harmful to your cause, and you should feel bad.
There’s a new trend taking over the social media pages of young British Muslims, and it’s targeted right at the Islamic State.
As Mic has previously reported, there’s something troubling about calling this terrorist group the “Islamic State,” since they do not accurately represent Islam or Islamic beliefs, but a twisted and perverted interpretation of the global religion.
So to combat this, young activists, led by Britain’s Active Change charity, are telling the terrorists to stop acting under the banner of Islam by circulating the hashtag #NotInMyName and calling out the group for “hiding behind a false Islam.”
An anti-zionism that doesn’t fight anti-semitism believes that Jews have no right to be safe anywhere.
Anonymous asked: Who do you believe historically, and as a result of the way they were treated, have it worse Jews or blacks
yikes it’s only 8am
This just in: black Jews don’t exist apparently. Like what a nasty ass question?
Black Jews are a fabrication of the liberal media

and al jazeera has written about it too
i think its kinda silly to avoid calling a state its own name just because you hate it a lot. thats why i roll my eyes when people go around calling israel “the zionist entity” like cmaaaan. israel exists. and you hate it. and you want to do something about it. calling the state its name isnt going to hurt you. the state isnt voldemort. the mossad isnt gonna come swoop down if you utter the word “israel” - even with a sneer! (also fear of a name increases fear of a thing itself maybe?)
but to call israel “the jewish state of israel and the levant”
um israel doesnt seek to cover the entirety of the levant and set up the equaivalent of a caliphate. israel IS expansionist, but it is limited expansionist, greater israel has BORDERS it doesnt seek to go beyond. that doesnt make israel “good” but it does make israel DIFFERENT.
israel also doesnt behead people. also ISIS has managed to commit genocide in a matter of months but the genocide accusation lobbed at israel is creeping at best and has taken 68 years. like, where are the similarities. where. people talking about “jewish religious supremacy” are stupid and also hilariously misinformed bc the state functions on national, then ethnic basis, not religion, like thats waaaaaaaaaaaaay down the list, but for ISIS that’s their raison d’etre.
trying to make a comparison between a non government guerrilla terrorist group and an established state is SO STUPID. they operate on radically different functions. im not saying you cant hate both, but to pretend they share any similarities other than “well they sorta share a neighborhood” is fucking ridiculous, like where is your brain. where is it.
people who take this term seriously should never ever make political policy
