What’s occurring in Palestine is not a struggle of Islam vs Judaism.
It’s settlers vs Indigenous people.
It’s kkkolonizer vs the colonized.
The pilgrims all used the excuse of religious persecution in europe to dispossess Indigenous peoples of our land and resources, and colonize the americas. The same is playing out in Palestine.
Yt jews are using a settler colonial myth that they are indigenous to lands of which they are indeed foreign. This is used to advance the genocide and land dispossession of Palestinians. The same has played out in the americas.
Both the united snakkkes and isntreal were founded as settler colonial outposts, created through the ethnic cleansing of Native people. This colonization continues today through racist policies, state violence, mass incarceration, forced displacement, and cultural erasure.
From racial profiling to police and military brutality, to corporate profiteering off of mass incarceration of youth, the systems that oppress the Palestinian people and Colonized communities in the united snakes are rooted in colonialism & yt power.
Our struggles are linked to the same structure of colonialism dispossessing, oppressing, and genociding us in the united snakes and worldwide.
It’s because of this common struggle we have always had solidarity with the Indigenous people of Palestine. Chants like “from Ferguson to Palestine, end racism now” and “from Palestine to Mexico, all the walls have got to go” are not slogans; they are shared realities.
While isntreal continues to displace Palestinians and build illegal, Jewish-only settlements on stolen Palestinian land, gentrification in the US continues to push Colonized peoples out of our communities in order to “develop” areas for the affluent.
