Jackie Walker takes on attack for not accepting IHRA. She says Israel is racist to which she is told she isn't a Jew (she is a jew)Posted by The People's Britain on Tuesday, September 4, 2018
“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.”
