.@Lowkey0nline has become the latest target of pro-Israel groups seeking to use disingenuous accusations and slander to silence any voice advocating for Palestinian rights.
The attack follows a familiar McCarthyite playbook of trawling though social media accounts and finding quotes to take out of context. The foundation is always the same: To define criticism of Israel outside of a very narrow proscribed framework as inherently antisemitic.
Part of the charge sheet against Lowkey is his calling out of the racist laws & policies of the Israeli state. Those attacking him ascribe antisemitism to descriptions of Israel as an example of a settler-colonial state practicing apartheid and ethnically cleansing Palestinians.
