Why What Happens in Israel/Palestine Matters to U.S. Citizens

As the newly elected far-right-wing Israeli government tightens its noose around Palestinians in Israel and the occupied Palestinian territories, so too does the noose tighten around U.S. citizens and organizations who dare to criticize Israeli apartheid, occupation, and war crimes. State after state in the United States has adopted the International Holocaust Remembrance Alliance definition of antisemitism, which defines actual forms of racism, but also includes criticism of Israel’s racist policies as being antisemitic. We seem to be at an unfortunate point now in the United States, when those persons or organizations who want to hold Israel accountable for its actions may be branded as antisemitic by the government, which could even lead to charges of domestic terrorism.
