  • I thought it would be important to include the following link:

    Jewish Voice for Peace - Our Approach to Zionism

    While it had many strains historically, the Zionism that took hold and stands today is a settler-colonial movement, establishing an apartheid state where Jews have more rights than others. Our own history teaches us how dangerous this can be.

    Palestinian dispossession and occupation are by design. Zionism has meant profound trauma for generations, systematically separating Palestinians from their homes, land, and each other. Zionism, in practice, has resulted in massacres of Palestinian people, ancient villages and olive groves destroyed, families who live just a mile away from each other separated by checkpoints and walls, and children holding onto the keys of the homes from which their grandparents were forcibly exiled.

  • It’s right there in the headline

    Oh the title. I read the article after a sneak-pick at the comment section and yours made me wonder to the point I did the ctr+f thingy.

    Well, the title has a quite different quote and that’s what makes all the difference due to the historic reference. I think if you don’t like the title, you should hate the article because of what it is describing in relation to what is happening in Germany to Jewish people, and not about how this article title is written.

    Do you deny that Jewish people suffer again on German ground, due to German policies using the argument of defending zionism?
    Do you deny that zionism is historically related to fascism?

    [edit: oops I thought I was replying to @Tarte and not @rimjob_rainer. Well the questions are for both of you or anyone who cares to answer them. Just to note that suffering is a spectrum. I am not claiming that Genocide is happening again in Germany, but people being targeted to the point of having their bank accounts frozen is a punitive measure to make people suffer]



  • “seizing money” = temporarily frozen bank account until a legal dispute is settled

    I didn’t find this term in the text (ctrl+f). Why do you have it in quotes?

    Apart from that nowadays if a bank freezes a person’s account, it’s really hard to live/survive in many places in this world and Germany is one of them. Unless you use crypto, and not everybody does.

    “Germany” = a German bank

    Banks often freeze accounts in order to follow governmental policies, often of protesters. Meaning, one way or another this move is backed by the government.
