Because of the brutal conditions a lot of Palestinans currently are and the possible conflicts that may arise, we gotta take note about the way things continue to change.

Some Jewish groups are pressuring the American left to speak out against Israel's treatment of Palestinans.

Heck yeah.. the democrat party is splitting. US Jews have always been at the forefront of US anti-Zionism, a great reason to not stereotype all Jews about anything.

Make Israel A Partisan Issue

They have also been at the forefront of US Zionism. Obviously jews are going to be the most partisan about issues relating to Israel.

But if you want to stop fighting wars for Israel you should realize that you are going to end up arguing with a lot of Jews to do it, who will call you antisemitic for claiming that US military force should only be used for things that are likely to become threats domestically. No more taking out Sadam. No more escalation with Iran.

You will be called an antisemite for being a decent person and not escalating war.

It seems we'll only have to argue with Jews in office, but not not so much with the Jewish population at large. You're right, it's no easy thing, but some of these stats are really encouraging.

The overwhelming majority of Jewish Americans are anti Zionist.

Fellow citizens who share our unified goal of freedom and liberty.

They are under represented in the media, along with the rest of the public.
