Not every Jewish issue ties into the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. You are participating in a system of structural violence committed against Jewish people, who have less privilege than you as a non-Jewish person, by framing this in a way that forces every Jewish person to be inescapably defined by this conflict. Rabbi David Saperstein is making a statement in support of equality and racial justice. He is not talking about Israel or Palestine. You are forcing this topic into a conversation about something completely different. You are perpetuating anti-semitism.
