Reason User banned (duration pending): Rationalizing antisemitic speech
I missed this part when I first quoted you. While it is antisemitic to say that, there is valid cause to condemn Israel and the Israel lobby. Charges of antisemitism for saying the critique in the wrong tone are weaponized against critics of those oppressive institutions while at the same time, people in the palestinian territories are bombed and kept in an outdoor prison. Antisemitism is real still, there's been shooting at synagogues and growing antisemitic conspiracies that fuel a fascist resurgence but we have to ask who's house is on fire at this current time instead of tone policing. If Argentina got involved in a war, we would not condemn someone as racist for referring to the government of Argentina as Argentinians, we would understand that as metonymy. It is wrong to do that with Jewish people and Israel but people make mistakes in the context of the current human rights travesty that Israel's government is doing to Palestine which makes mispeaking or being offensive in speech a small thing next to bombs and walls, segregated roads, and checkpoints.
