To date, I’ve only seen five posts from people on the left condemning the Dλke March incident as absurd, offensive, and unhelpful, and four of those people have been Palestinian.
This once again confirms my belief that if Jews and Palestinians were to jettison their extremist, cut off outside influencers using the conflict as a proxy for their bigotries (other Arab states, Christian Zionists, etc.), and put a real focus on combatting our own biases, that we could actually one day be each other’s best allies.
I am so fucking tired of being in the middle of a #discourse that never concedes a reality where the other side can be comprised of nuanced, complex, growing people. How could it when we’ve never even been allowed to actually fucking talk to each other?
