"Through inquiries, Dyke March leadership indicated that Israeli flags and related national symbols are not welcome."

I wonder what those "related national symbols" might be. Did the Dyke March just ban all Jewish stars?

Banning all Jewish stars is of course the logical conclusion of the far left's approach to anti-Semitism - "It's all on the right! We're just anti-Zionists!" - and to Jews. The mere fact that you're related to Israel now gets you banned - unless you hide it REALLY well.
It's been a year of getting murdered in our shuls for being Jewish, and the Dyke March has decided to meet that reality by... banning Jewish stars. If there's a lower low, I can't fathom it. The people this move was designed to benefit really need to speak up - loud and clear.
The Dyke March ban on Jewish stars bars all identified Jews. A Jew with a star would not be safe at the Dyke March - as she is not on the streets of Germany in a kippa. Neither is happening in a vacuum. You need a culture that tolerates anti-Semitism for this to happen.
Some clarification from @washingtonpost: No Jewish Pride flags, no American flags, no Israeli flags, but a FB msg clarified that Jewish stars will be allowed, as will the Palestinian flag, because apparently these people don't think the PA is "repressive." washingtonpost.com/local/pride-an…
@washingtonpost Would love to know who the Dyke March is putting in charge of policing which Jewish symbols are "national" and which allowed. In any case, if there's only room in your movement for the 3% of Jews who say they aren't pro-Israel, your movement effectively bans Jews.
@washingtonpost It would be really nice if the far left looked at this ban on Jewish Pride flags and symbols and asked, "How have we contributed to an environment in which this is possible? This year of all years?" I'm really, really hoping that's what today brings. Don't @ me, pessimists!
@washingtonpost After a long, at times heated conversation that I watched via @PardesSeleh (thnx!), @ZionessMovement was allowed to join the #DykeMarch, Jewish flags and all. Which is really, really cool. Women are amazing, y'all. What a blessed end to this saga.

This could have gone either way. I'm so grateful to be going into Shabbos knowing that it ended with righteous Jewish women on both sides finding a space where they disagree but can march together. Special props to the #DykeMarch Marshall who had her say, and then chose YES 🙏🏻
