This isn't the way. Advocating for Palestinians doesn't mean you target Israelis and/or Jewish people. This is appalling and I'm not surprised it was in Portland.
If you were part of this in any way? Unfollow me immediately. You are not an ally. You are not a comrade. You are no better than the Nazis that target these same businesses and people.
I have personally experienced anti-semitism from prominent activists in Portland. I have seen a lot of casual anti-semitism from PDX Leftists as well. I have been trying to educate and warn people of the danger but I've mostly been ignored and ostracized. Now will you listen?
Frankly, I'm trying to hold back my anger. I had been bullied, mocked, and ostracized for trying to warn PDX of the dangers of anti-semitism. One of the co-owners of this business is Palestinian. PDX targeted a Palestinian because anti-semitism has been allowed to run unchecked
I also find the lack of retweets by non Jewish people telling. When I share something like this for any other marginalized group people share it far and wide with outrage. When I share something like this involving Jewish people I get crickets. I notice. Believe me. I notice.
Portland has shown time and time again that Jewish lives don't matter. Their Nazi roots run too deep. Even "woke" Leftists espouse anti-semitism. If this isn't taken seriously more than graffiti will happen. Anti-semitism gets people killed.

Panic alert buttons were torn out and disabled in one reps office. Another rep had an unmarked secret office and the rioters went to that one instead of his normal marked office. Insurrectionist knew their way around the building from the beginning, and had maps of the tunnels.
Another rep is saying that some of the insurrectionists were given a guided tour of the building with members of congress the day before. Another rep live tweeted Pelosi's movements while the rioters were in the building.

This was planned. Members of Congress helped plan it.
Another point. A fair amount of cops removed barricades, waived the insurrectionists into the building, and even gave them directions. One even took selfies with the rioters.

In the US Jews are only 2% of the population but are disproportionately targeted for hate crimes every single year, and it's been this way since for decades. Antisemitism is so ingrained in society that it is everywhere.
I've pointed out antisemitism in leftist spaces and it was largely ignored until there was also racist/ableist/sexists coming from the same source. Why wasn't antisemitism enough for ppl to see there was a problem? Why did other qualifiers need to be attached for you to listen?
Many are under the false impression that being Jewish means you practice a particular religion. Jewish can also be considered an ethnicity. Some consider it a race. There are many secular Jewish people like me. I was born Jewish.

When leftist infighting gets me down I try to remember that it's got nothing on the crafting community. At least leftists don't have pointy tools like knitting needles. Things will be fine. LMAO.
Wanna see someone *really* get cancelled? Monitor crafting groups on facebook. Moment someone says the wrong thing? Good g-d I hope you can craft yourself a parachute because you're gonna have to bail from that burning plane FAST. Glitter bomb incoming! 🤣
There is no quarter for a crafter with the wrong take. Even if you apologise. You're dead to the group. Your epitaph will read 'Traitor' on your very cute handcrafted tombstone.
