Why Must Women Choose between Feminism and Zionism, but Not Other “Isms”?

On March 8, women abstained from work as part of the International Women’s Strike (IWS) – a grassroots feminist movement aimed at bringing attention “to the current social, legal, political, moral and verbal violence experienced by contemporary women at various latitudes.” But these positive goals were distorted by the inclusion of anti-Israel rhetoric in the platform of the IWS.

There are many countries and movements throughout the world that treat women as second-class citizens: Israel is not among them. Yet this platform singles out for condemnation only Israel, the nation state of the Jewish people. There is a word for applying a double standard to Jews. That word is anti-Semitism.

    On march 9 they had twice as many dishes to wash.

    Because the wymyns movement has been infiltrated and hijacked by Palestinian/Islamist moles who are going to ride them harder than a rented mule?

    That’s my guess.

    Go ahead, choose Islam. Now go away.

    “There is a word for applying a double standard to Jews. That word is anti-Semitism.”

    “There is a word for twisting all progressive activism against Jews. That word is Intersectionality.”

    Intersectionality is the heart of left-wing theorizing, and the heart of intersectionality is anti-semitism.
