The myth of coexistence. When people say the Jewish people lived together with Muslims and Christians before Zionism - it is a horrific distortion of the truth. It is a lie that shapes people's opinion in such a way they can never see the real picture.

Throughout the Middle East & North Africa there were restrictions on how Jews could practicise Judaism. Jews were debarred from certain jobs & denied citizenship.

There were also forcible conversions, massacres and destruction of property.

A 'short' list just from the 1800s:
1800 Yemen - Jewish orphans forced to undergo education in Islamic ways
1805 Algeria - 200-500 Jews are massacred
1807 Morocco - Massacre of Jews
1811 Algeria - Head of Jewish community decapitated

I'll do occasional history of #Zionism tweets to set the record straight. First, Zionism was never a monolith. Uganda was briefly considered as the site for a Jewish state. But, in the end, most agreed that joining our existing brethren who had never left Eretz Yisrael was best.
#Zionism was never a colonial plan. European Jews had no power to "colonize" anywhere. We had prayed for our return to Jerusalem every day for 2,000 years. Zionism was seen as a return home. Religious Jews wanted to wait for God to make it happen. Secular Jews were less patient.
Meanwhile, in the region that was once Israel before the exile, Jews and southern Syrian Arabs (they would not have recognized the term “Palestinians”) lived under the rule an ailing Ottoman Empire. After WWI, the British took it over and administered it as Mandate Palestine.

1/ The primary purpose of #Zionism - the subjugation of Europe.
2/ Europe has had a problem with Islamic immigrants enabled by Jews since oh, 700AD so today's fun and games are nothing new.

3/ Zionists are completely open about their plans: to replace white Christian nations with immigrants. They've been at it for over a century.

All About the Israel-Palestine Conflict
Excellent crash course about the history of the conflict. Please share. Spread the truth and educate people one by one about the true history of Israel.

Évian Conference, July 6–15, 1938, at Évian-les-Bains, France, organized by FDR who hoped to obtain commitments to accept Jewish refugees from some of the invited 32 nations & 24 organizations, and to deflect from the U.S.'s severely limited quota. Ireland declined to accept any.
The conference to obtain commitments to accept Jewish refugees was attended by 32 countries, 24 orgs and Golda Meir, representing British Mandate Palestine. She was not permitted to speak or participate. 200 international journalists were at Évian to observe and publish reports.

In initial interview before reaching ambulance, @MsNazContractor, playing the Muslim councilwoman whom Detective Carisi (@PeterScanavino) has already informed us is famous for anti-Semitic remarks, tells him & Detective Rollins (@KelliGiddish) that "those people" are responsible
for her assault. Thus, she confirms her antisemitism. The councilwoman is an barely concealed stand-in for Ilhan Omar, a representative to the US House of Representatives from Minnesota's 5th District. @nbcsvu @SVUWritersRoom
Min 0458: A reporter asks Chief Dodds (@petergallagher): "Councilwoman Nasar is an on-the-record anti-Semite. Can you comment?" Chief Dodds doesn't contradict the reporter's assertion, thus implicitly confirming it.

Here it comes! Following @IlhanMN and @RashidaTlaib, Iyad Afalqa, the chairman of the Arab American Caucus of the California Democratic Party, accused Senate Democrate Leader Charles Schumer @SenSchumer of having allegiance to the “fascist #Israel lobby.”…
Here is @IYADALOGY twitter post where he wrote: “Shmuck Schumer the traitor whose allegiance is for Fascist #Israel lobby who called himself the Guardian of Israel in Congress is attacking @IlhanMN who hinted at the big elephant in the room: treason of the Fascist Israel lobby
In February, @IYADALOGY shared Al Jazeera op-ed stating:“#Zionism always been white supremacist, settler colonialist, anti-democratic, right-wing ideology, which demanded loyalty based on nationalist racism” that “collaborated with #AntiSemitic forces towards global apartheid.” &

1️⃣ This kind of anarchist behavior is totally unacceptable. Societies and states fall apart and turn into failure without controlling the interests and the disadvantages.

Peace be upon you. 🌹❤️😊

Cc: @maitelsadany
2️⃣ #Iraq #Syria #Libya #Yemen are examples can benefit sane order people not the anarchists who have no limits, no values, nothing but insanity, ignorance and vanity with identity disorder.

They even don’t who they are.
3️⃣ Because you read some books or moved from Middle East or anywhere one Earth to settle in Washington, London, Paris or Berlin, doesn’t mean that you have authority to change states and societies that they’re there before your daddy and mommy have been born.

This is so concerning! @mstein81 details how a student government hearing on #BDS at @swarthmore quickly devolved into an #antisemitic hate fest.…
The student government at @swarthmore conflated #Zionism with #Nazism, harked on old #antisemitic tropes, used inflammatory rhetoric reminiscent of #IlhanOmar and #DavidDuke.
Instead of condemning this bigotry, @swarthmore student government encouraged it. They sent an email proudly stating that the meeting should be a “precedent” for future meetings, and “an example of what SGO should strive to be.”

#USA politicians support #Israel not out of allegiance or the power of lobbyists. Aspects of this support include:

1. Annual >$3b aid packages, with regular supplements & fewer restrictions than aid to other nations
2. Support of governments #Israel likes, such as #Jordan #KSA
#Egypt, regardless of #humanrights abuses
3. Undermining/attacking governments, groups & nations it dislikes: #Iraq #Iran #Lebanon
4. Ignoring obligations to #Palestinians under intl law
5. Allowing "charities" to receive tax-deductible donations used to further #ethniccleansing
in #Palestine.
6. Various state & federal government agencies with preferences to #Israel, such as #police exchanges & subsidized trade delegations.
7. Voting for legislation punishing people who support #BDS, a non-violent advocacy tactic.

Whatever it is that causes #USA

Former @SyracuseU faculty member Julia Ganson thinks we should teach our kids about the "good work of #Hamas."
At the same event, @AvaCarmeli suggests violence against innocent people could be a legitimate response to #Zionism.
Pat Carmeli, member of @SyracuseU's Peace Council, quotes terrorist apologist @normfinkelstein -- "Palestinians have the right to use violence... #Israel has no right to use violence."

#MAGA, we can NOT Make America Great Again until WE force #Zionism out of American politics. You, #MAGA, have to pressure @POTUS/@VP to break up with #ZOG and Israel -- for US to reclaim our nation.

Jews are Edom (Esau) NOT Israel. Open your 👁️👁️MAGA & fight 4 US vs Zionists!
What don't you understand, #MAGA? "Israel" is a Rothschild landgrab. The Jews are EDOM/ESAU, mongrels! NOT Jacob/Israel's descendants. They are the ENEMIES of TRUE ISRAEL -- WHITE, CHRISTIANS.

Christianity & Israelite nations were rolled by (((anti-Christs)))!
.@POTUS is captured. Chabad-Kushner and VP of #ZOG, Pence, are running his shit. I love Trump, too, but he's not a free man. They have something on him. He's owned. Wake up, #MAGA & use your #s to DIRECT Trump & US policy. Congress & @POTUS NEED We the People to overthrow #ZOG.

Ok so I would call myself a leftist.I read @972mag and @haaretzcom,I oppose the occupation,and I got called a "self-hating Jew" plenty times, because I firmly believe in a Palestinian right to self-determination.However,I find @jvplive's statement on #Zionism highly irritating./1
I think the statement is extremely one-sided, not providing context when speaking about Zionism and it comes from a position of privilege that many other Jews don't have. The US has the biggest Jewish community outside of Israel /2
Jewish culture is a "natural" part of American culture. As an American Jew, living a "Jewish" life (at least in the big cities) is quite easy when it comes to finding kosher food at the supermarket, channuka candles or a "Mazel Tov" greeting card. /3

Zionism is the belief in self determination for Jews in their historic homeland. It in no way implies discrimination against non-Jewish citizens or residents.
(And, indeed, the Declaration of Independence of Israel promises to “foster the development of the country for the benefit of all its inhabitants”
and promises to “ensure complete equality of social and political rights to all its inhabitants irrespective of religion, race or sex” and to “guarantee freedom of religion, conscience, language, education and culture”, and to “safeguard the Holy Places of all religions.”
