Israel’s IDF always trumpets its ~super advanced and high tech~ military technology that conveniently “accidentally” kills dozens of Palestinian children every day.
this is not to excuse or condone anti-Semitic actions (nothing excuses intentional anti-Semitic actions), but i have to suggest that the conflation of Israel and all Jewish folks is at least in some part caused by a very concerted political/ideological effort by the state of Israel, its extremist supporters, and zionists, to create the perception that Israel represents all Jewish people and an attack/critique of Israel is an attack on Jewish people.
similarly, this has made me think about the (largely undiscussed) Western (and probably in other places too) conflation of Palestinians with Muslims, and how for many racist/islamophobic people around the world, Israel’s violence against Palestinians is a welcomed strategy of military violence against Muslims.
