The Hard Left which likes to generally match Israel/Israel supporters with the villain of the issue and Jewish organizations that try to match historic Jewish victimhood with the current victim. Doing so dilutes support for the issue at hand. Recent Hard Left leaders like Farrakhan, Sarsour and Mallory who have tried and failed to do so are now largely irrelevant to America as a whole.
The fact of the matter is that demanding that Israel get its foot off the neck of the Palestinians reinforces rather than dilutes the BLM movement. I suspect the families of both Iyad Halak and George Floyd would agree.
Oh well allow me to retort
What a fucking pile of shit. The fact is that the murder of George Floyd parallels with the murder of victims of Palestinian Terrorism who's only "crime" is they have a different identity (being Jewish). But I don't hold up a sign saying that. Halak was unintentional. The Palestinian victims are not. For that matter the overwhelming majority of police would not have approved of murdering Floyd while the overwhelming majority of Palestinians would approve of their terrorism. So if you want to make parallels.
Just know that we're not going to be victims anymore either. In Israel or here by antisemitic pieces of shit.
Is Palestinian Terrorism Good For Israel?
