This needs to be brought to attention IMMEDIATELY!!!!!
I don’t even understand what they’re expecting anymore. if they can lie to us to our face and us KNOW the truth, what power do we have , then?
So I dyed my cats pink with leftover beet water. No regrets! <3 :D
I had to wash them because of some oil spill they had gotten into, and chose to use the beet water, which is perfectly safe. I had no idea it would really make them this pink.
I bet this poor person has gotten plenty of hate filled messages from people that didn’t read the caption and think she used real hair dye.

If you believe that your “pro-Palestinian activism” and being a “good ally to the Palestinians” requires you to ignore Jews, hijack their conversations, deny them a discourse on their identity in the diaspora, and tell them that having and educating others on their religious and ethnic identity is detrimental to your cause, then you are doing the pro-Palestinian movement the worst possible disservice.
Antisemitism in pro-Palestinian circles makes Jewish allies feel rightfully unsafe and unwelcome. It tells left-wing Jews believe that they need to disassociate with their ethnicity, culture, religion, upbringing, history, and identity in order for you to accept them as worth listening to. Political Zionism has its deepest roots in places where Jews were and are marginalized, excluded, and hated, and creating that environment in activist circles does nothing but alienate true allies and hurt your cause. It also perpetuates the really harmful idea that pro-Palestinian circles are automatically antisemitic, or that anti-Zionism itself is antisemitic by default, and push curious and open Jews further to the right.
"Allies" and "activists" who do this are the reason why most of my leftist Jewish friends didn’t go to rallies for Gaza or campus meetings for anti-Zionist groups. The cause of Palestinian freedom and statehood is righteous and worthy, and the last thing that the Palestinians need are vocal bigots and oppressors who claim to support them.
