In recent weeks, Othman Ibn Affan, the main thoroughfare in the East Jerusalem neighborhood of Sheikh Jarrah, has begun to resemble Hebron’s infamous segregated Shuhada Street. Israeli police forces have established militarized checkpoints, are patrolling the area 24/7, forbidding the entry of Palestinians who do not live in the neighborhood, and allowing complete freedom of movement for settlers and right-wing activists.

After splitting from the Joint List ahead of the last Israeli election, the United Arab List (Ra’am), the Islamist party led by Mansour Abbas, ran a campaign that tried to market the party as “conservative” while concurrently offering a “new approach” to Arab politics in Israel. According to this “approach,” Ra’am could join any new Israeli government, regardless of whether it was left or right wing, even if it meant sitting with Kahanists in the same coalition. Ra’am’s break from the other three Arab parties in the Joint List, Abbas insisted, was set to be “historic.”

Unlike many of his predecessors, the young Benjamin Netanyahu didn’t plan on a career in politics. Former Israeli prime ministers such as David Ben-Gurion, Shimon Peres, and Ehud Olmert chose a political path at a young age. Yitzhak Rabin, Ariel Sharon, and Ehud Barak segued into politics after a military career, like many other generals.

Netanyahu, in contrast, grew up in the shadow of an older brother, Yoni, who was cultivated by his family — and particularly by their father, Benzion — as a future leader. Bibi, meanwhile, wanted to become an American businessman. It was Yoni’s death as a soldier during the 1976 commando raid in Entebbe, and the natural talent the young Benjamin exhibited during debates and TV appearances, that launched what is arguably the most successful political career in Israeli history.

Two weeks after Israel and Hamas agreed to an Egyptian-brokered ceasefire to end 11 days of intensive violence, U.S. Senator Lindsey Graham announced on June 1 that Israel was planning to make a $1 billion request to the Pentagon to “replenish” its Iron Dome anti-missile system. The Republican Senator, who was visiting senior Israeli officials in Jerusalem, admitted that there had been “a big dustup” in Congress over the latest escalations, but insisted that “there’s a wide and deep support for Israel among the Democratic Party” to ensure the request would be approved.

While Graham’s assurances about bipartisan support are correct, the “dustup” in the United States has certainly not died down. Since the start of Israel’s assault on Gaza last month — the fourth large-scale operation in the strip in 20 years — the debate around Washington’s financial support for Israel, along with its long undiscussed moral quandaries, appear to have broken even more tremendous ground in the national political conversation. This comes despite mainstream U.S. media and social media companies skewing reporting on the escalations in Gaza, as well as on Israel’s efforts to expel Palestinian families from the Jerusalem neighborhoods of Sheikh Jarrah and Silwan.

Omaiyer Lawabne was withdrawing money from an ATM in Nazareth on May 11, the eve of Eid al-Fitr, the holiday marking the end of the holy month of Ramadan, when police forces descended on the area. Nearby, Palestinian citizens were protesting against the forced expulsion of families in the Jerusalem neighborhood of Sheikh Jarrah.

“I immediately started to walk away, slowly, in order to distance myself, as I wasn’t even part of the protest,” said the 21-year-old Lawabne. Some of the officers appeared to be special units and were heavily weaponized, he recalled. “At one point, I looked to my right and saw a police officer in full riot gear running toward me with his fist raised in the air to hit me.”

On May 13, something remarkable happened on the floor of the U.S. Congress: 11 Democratic representatives delivered blunt speeches criticizing Israel for its military assault on Gaza and its crackdown on Palestinian protests in Jerusalem. Perhaps the most powerful speeches came from two Black Congresswomen — Ayanna Pressley and Cori Bush — who connected the Black freedom struggle in the United States to the Palestinian movement for liberation.

“When Black Lives Matter protesters took to the streets to demand justice, they were met with force,” said Pressley, who represents the Boston area in Massachusetts. “They faced tear gas, rubber bullets, and a militarized police just as our Palestinian brothers and sisters are facing in Jerusalem today.” Her fellow Congresswoman Bush, who represents St. Louis, Missouri, said “When heavily militarized police forces showed up in Ferguson in 2014… our Palestinian siblings showed up too.”

Opening up Gaza “is clearly in Israel’s interest,” said the manager of the Erez Crossing between Israel and Gaza, Shlomo Tzaban, during a talk with students at Ben-Gurion University last week.

“Gaza has to be opened up immediately, without linkage to prisoners and missing persons and without linkage to Hamas,” he said. “If we open it [Gaza] today, there will be no suicide bombings and Hamas will be severely weakened.”

It is a bewildering and alarming time to be a Jew, both because antisemitism is rising and because so many politicians are responding to it not by protecting Jews but by victimising Palestinians. On 16 February, members of France’s yellow vest protest movement hurled antisemitic insults at the distinguished French Jewish philosopher Alain Finkielkraut. On 19 February, swastikas were found on 80 gravestones in Alsace. Two days later, the French president, Emmanuel Macron, after announcing that Europe was “facing a resurgence of antisemitism unseen since World War II”, unveiled new measures to fight it. Among them was a new official definition of antisemitism. That definition, produced by the International Holocaust Remembrance Alliance in 2016, includes among its “contemporary examples” of antisemitism “denying the Jewish people their right to self-determination”. In other words, anti-Zionism is Jew hatred. In so doing, Macron joined Germany, Britain, the United States and roughly 30 other governments. And like them, he made a tragic mistake. Anti-Zionism is not inherently antisemitic – and claiming it is uses Jewish suffering to erase the Palestinian experience. Yes, antisemitism is growing. Yes, world leaders must fight it fiercely. But in the words of a great Zionist thinker, “This is not the way”. https://www.theguardian.com/news/2019/mar/07/debunking-myth-that-anti-zi...
