Jews must raise voices for Palestine, oppose ‘false idol of Zionism’ – Naomi Klein

Hundreds of protesters were arrested in Brooklyn last Tuesday when Jewish New Yorkers and allies gathered for what they called a “Seder in the streets to stop arming Israel” on the second night of Passover.

The demonstration, held one block away from the home of US Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer, came just hours before the Senate overwhelmingly approved a $95bn foreign aid package that includes about $17bn in arms and security funding to Israel.

“Too many of our people are worshiping a false idol,” said award-winning author and activist Naomi Klein, one of several speakers at Tuesday’s rally. “They are enraptured by it. They are drunk on it. They are profaned by it. And that false idol is called Zionism.”
