Being critical of the Trump administration and its policies doesn’t make you anti-American. Being critical of Netanyahu and his government’s policies doesn’t make you anti-Israel.
As a person advocating for Palestinian human rights, I want a peaceful and secure Israel. I think the only way for that to come about is if Palestinians have their human rights upheld.
I think non-violent tactics (such as BDS) to pressure Israel to live up to its obligations under international law is a rational and moral course of action – and a tactic that has worked before.
“Anti-Americanism is a very interesting concept. It’s a concept that only exists in totalitarian states. For example, if someone in Italy, let’s say criticizing the Berlusconi government – they are not accused of being anti-Italian. In the old Soviet Union you could be condemned for being anti-Soviet, in the Brazilian military dictatorship you could be anti-Brazilian. But aside from the US, I don’t know any other non-totalitarian, non-authoritarian country where the concept even exists. That’s a very striking concept. If you’re critical of policy – you’re anti-American. Actually, this has a very interesting Biblical origin. The first use of this concept was by King Ahab, who was the King of the ultimate evil in the Bible. He called Prophet Elijah to him and asked him why he was a hater of Israel, meaning condemning the acts of the evil king. That’s basic concept: if you challenge authority, you’re opposed to the society, the culture and the community.” – Noam Chomsky
