Human Rights For All!

…Except Jews

Fighting for the oppressed demonstrates kindness, integrity, and compassion. It is rewarding, but most importantly it is a crucial civic duty. When given an opportunity to help, many people would take a break in their self-absorbed lives to be a part of that fight for change. However, the important question one must ask is whether or not we are fighting for the right thing. In today’s day and age, we see much more people on the far ends of the political spectrum. Putting aside many atrocities of the far right, I am taking the time to acknowledge the far left. The modern Liberal and Democratic parties emphasize social equality and equal opportunity. They support voting rights and minority rights, including LGBT rights along with many others. With all the evolving changes in our society for the greater good, we have unfortunately seen some negative aspects as well — specifically the rise of anti-Semitism. The far left has reintegrated anti-Semitism into society by hiding behind supposed “human rights”. More specifically, I should say by hiding behind the BDS movement — a movement that supports boycotts, divestments, and economic sanctions against Israel.
