“Our hard fought for vocabulary of liberation names the person as being the one who claims what their identity is. not a state, and not you.
You can give me a big long list of all the people who agree with it – this is something that Noam Chomsky is absolutely telling us, and saying it clearly:
‘It doesn’t matter how much harassment, vilification or abuse you send to me, I will never accept that Israel is a necessary part of my identity as a Jew.’
I want you to note, do you hear that? He says I am not a Jew – because of course these people believe, just like the Nazis that they have the ability to define who is a Jew or not.
I do not accept the definition that Israel is a non racist state. As a non Jew you cannot buy land anywhere you like, you cannot use any roads you like.
If I am in a hospital I, as a Jew, can choose wether I share that area with non Jews or not.”
