Jewish Activist: U.S. Jews Spew Hate Like That Which Killed New Zealand Muslims

    A Jewish social justice advocate said he is going to donate to pro-Palestinian organizations after receiving negative comments for accusing the “American Jewish Establishment” of spreading anti-Muslim rhetoric and provoking the massacres at two New Zealand mosques.

    Jesse Rabinowitz wrote on Facebook last week that “the same language and hate that folks spew against Sisters Linda Sarsour and Ilhan Omar killed 54 Muslim’s in New Zealand.”

    “American Jewish Establishment, I’m looking at you,” he concluded the post.

    Days later, he shared a post by the Zioness Movement, which condemned him and Women’s March co-founder Bob Bland, who had shared the post and later apologized. In response to the negative commenters, he said he will donate a to pro-Palestinian organizations IfNotNow and MPower Change.
