lemme try this again:
decades of coordinated political work by American, Israeli, and European political, diplomatic, and military elite have rendered the discursive terrain so perilous as to make it impossible to speak plainly about zionism.
here are some explanatory examples:
“Hundreds of millions of dollars have been spent by prominent conservative Americans on monitoring and attacking professors and students critical of Israel.” jezebel.com/the-campus-fre…
The Forward actually ran a series in 2018 exposing the vast networks of supporting organizations behind Canary Mission and other right wing groups dedicated to harassing Palestinians and their allies. There are links throughout. forward.com/news/israel/41…
propublica.org/article/dc-pro… Republican donors, israeli government contacts, and US military strategies
In this 1986 book review, Edward Said traces the coordination of israeli, American, and European elites in constructing a discourse of terrorism premised upon racist western exceptionalism thenation.com/article/archiv…
One of many online initiatives to spread pro-Israel propaganda, with undeclared connections to the israeli government through individuals and institutions buzzfeednews.com/article/ishmae…
2010 NYT article exposing the funding channels keeping illegal israeli settlements afloat nytimes.com/2010/07/06/wor…
Another example of US dollars “charitably” supporting far right militants in illegal settlements inthesetimes.com/features/one_i…
Ignore the unfortunate Ilh*n Om*r news peg — here’s Stephen Walt talking about the israel lobby (a term he coined with John Mearsheimer in 2007) and its overlap with existing American policy interests foreignpolicy.com/2019/02/15/how…
The amount of money involved here is dizzying, and it’s lifted directly from long-standing counterinsurgency doctrine theintercept.com/2019/02/11/ilh…
In this interview, Dr Laleh Khalili explains some of the connections between contemporary US and Israeli policies and historical colonial practices of rule and domination.
there’s so much more to be said about this. this thread is literally the tip of the iceberg. but I hope it’s been illustrative of how deeply and dangerously connected, and well mobilized, zionist messaging and organizing truly is.
another note:
although much of this work is somewhat clandestine, none of this is the function of conspiracy, and it has been largely produced through institutions & practices devised by non-jews. this is not ~~~jewish conspiracy. that shit does not exist.
It is pure, simple capitalism.
ugh I can’t believe I forgot to turn off replies.....

supporters of zionism always feel a lil too close for comfort with antisemitic conspiracy imo.... like why do u think this is what we’re talking about bc this is not what we’re talking about bro
zionists assume every critique of well documented, widely observed israeli and american elite political behaviour is actually about jewish people and honestly as a jew it makes me super comfortable lol like we didn’t say all of that, why are You saying it?
thinking about Batya and the entirely manufactured Ilhan Omar thing.... like people are making leaps and jumps and reaches and scrambles and then turn around to claim we’re being antisemitic (often to ourselves?) when no one put those words in their mouths lol
