Former Israel commander says Israel’s ‘unjust’ war in Palestine fuels ‘anti-Semitism around the world’

Last week a former Israeli security official urged American Jews to restrain Israel’s “unjust” war in Palestine because it fuels anti-Semitism around the world.

Gilad Atzmon on Truth, Faith and Palestine – Chester Interfaith Palestine Conference

Extinction Rebellion has shown me the way forward for Jewish solidarity with Palestine

What makes some Jewish rebellions more acceptable than others? When can you use Judaism in the service of rebellion and when can’t you?
