Linda Sarsour published on Facebook the classic antisemitic meme that American Jews who support Israel’s existence are guilty of being more loyal to Israel than to America:
This caused some consternation among Jewish women who may be supportive of every single critic of Israel but who still have some vestiges of pride in their Judaism and awareness of the history of that slur:
Really, really, really disappointed to see this canard of dual loyalties from @lsarsour. I don’t know if she’s subtweeting my piece which actually defended @IlhanMN (https://t.co/84rOBEZAwf) but I am pretty upset by this. What a betrayal of the intersectional ideal. pic.twitter.com/e3JfdTn0W2

Hi @lsarsour – you may not know this, but when you imply Jews put loyalty to #Israel above all else – including their progressive values – you’re feeding into a dangerous anti Semitic trope. Please choose your words more carefully. @AJCGlobal @ADL_National pic.twitter.com/BBqBgb621e
