Support for Palestinian rights is not anti-semitism. So why did Senator Cory Booker respond to the Pittsburgh synagogue shooting by adding his name to the Israel Anti-Boycott Act? Send a message to Senator Booker telling him to remove his name from this legislation that violates the First Amendment.

    Supporting a government that pays to kill Jews is anti-Semitic, supporting a people that celebrates terror is anti-Semitic.

    Thanx for the great worx, I look forward…. “…We(e),…” are advancing the Evolution in it’s struggle against the corporate structure’s (la machine) convolution and it’s devolutionary direction. Your worx go along way in that evolutionary direction, for, we can walk in nature’s balance, giving back to Earth’s abundance. All life are necessary threads in life’s fabric, we can’t allow to be torn asunder, as we followed none, we leave no footprints that will echo on, in all ways, always. reality

    This is Alice Walker. Brother Booker do your due diligence. Go to Palestine and tell us what Martin would have us do. Suffering has made us a thoughtful people, moved by grief but not so easily swayed anymore by hysteria. Though our hearts ache for the pain we know is wounding others. Whatever their tribe. Go to Israel and speak with activist Jews who better than anyone realize how easily Americans are swayed, and used, to their chagrin later on, that they’ve been had. Bless you.

    The Israeli Defense Force has killed and/or wounded over ten times as many non-violent Palestinians since March than the number of Jewish worshippers murdered in Pittsburg; the number of Yemenis being slaughtered by the US armed, trained, and equipped, Saudi Armed Forces is over ten times more than even that.
    Withdrawing support for this bill, which intends to muzzle American rights to criticize Israeli injustices, will protect our freedom, which, as the ACLU frequently says, cannot defend itself.

    I would appeal to our shared history of oppression in America – from slavery thru Jim Crow – but do not wish to insult you with the obvious nor assume your personal relationship to Palestinian oppression. People of color – especially those with power – need the space and breadth…and perhaps, in this case, apparently…time…to be nuanced as dimensional in our allyship. Nuance and dimension oft arises from debate, our First Amendment right. Senator, thank you for taking the lead in your party to critique the current US leadership’s disregard of our most vulnerable. Such tough love does not demean your patriotism. Entirely to the contrary, calling out power is proof of your democratic conviction. Allowance for critique – or in some cases, questioning not Israel, but rather Israeli policy – strengthens the integrity and hopefully, empathy of our global citizenship. The most sophisticated discussion is naturally contentious because it challenges those structures so entrenched that they have escaped ostensibly beneficial censure. Please continue to promote that challenge here; please extend the same to Palestine.

    Senator Booker, do the right thing and support a free and independent Palestinian State. It’s never wrong to do the right thing.

    Hey, hey Senator Cory Booker — Did you not know that Palestinians, Jews and Arabs are all Semites. So supporting Palestinian Right for Freedom and self-determination is not anti-Semitism. That is why so many Jews all around the world have no problems supporting Palestinians as fellow Semites deserving of full respect and dignity to life.

    I watched you during the Kavanaugh debacle and felt to so proud of your demonstrating backbone in a difficult situation. You were principled and strong—the kind of leader we need more of. However, your caving in to the pressure from the apartheid Israel and its American lobby here is more than shameful. I would have expected you to understand the racist nature of Israel’s pressure on Americans to try and squash one of the most powerful tools available to people who are oppressed.

    Please withdraw your name from this anti-free speech effort against BDS. Stand up and support the right of the Palestinians to work for their freedom from an illegal occupier State. Join forces with American Jews who support BDS knowing clearly that such support is not anti-semetic at all.

    Please don’t forget history…. The Palestinians have become like our Native Americans… pushed out to their on land by invaders.
    “So I have come down to rescue them from the hand of the Egyptians and to bring them up out of that land into a good and spacious land, a land flowing with milk and honey — the home of the Canaanites, Hittites, Amorites, Perizzites, Hivites and Jebusites.” (Exodus 3:7)

    The People of Palestine deserve to be free from APARTHEID. Boycott and divestment was the tool used to rid South Africa of Apartheid. Remove you name from the Israel Anti-Boycott Act.
