People are suddenly paying attention to laws in states quashing free speech critical of Israel.

What most people don’t know is that these laws are being used as a template for legislation quashing free speech on other topics.

New thread ft. Members of Congress who've been silent re Israeli actions related to Sheikh Jarrah & Haram a-Sharif/Temple Mt, but who are now moved to speak on missiles being fired into Israel (which, to be clear, is a war crime - but the selective empathy/outrage is striking):

Cogs in the Israel Settlement Defense Forces

"Hundreds of Israeli soldiers age 19 to 21 are deployed every night on missions of state terror when they break into Palestinian homes in the West Bank, without a judge’s warrant or oversight of a body that is not an interested party (there is no such body)…”

"The authority is a military order from 54 years ago, when we thought the occupation was temporary…”
