Boycott Israel groups and anti-Israel movements on American college campuses are using the tragedy of George Floyd’s murder to launch dangerous blood libels against Israel and specifically the IDF.

“The Israeli military trains US police in racist and repressive policing tactics, which systematically targets black and brown bodies,” the US Campaign for Palestinian Rights claimed in a social media post. And the Democratic Socialists of America’s Boycott Divestment Sanctions group claimed, “knee to the neck” is “straight out of the IDF playbook.”

“The knee-to-neck choke-hold that (Derek) Chauvin used to murder George Floyd has been used and perfected to torture Palestinians by Israeli occupation forces through 72 years of ethnic cleansing and dispossession,” according to a petition stemming from the University of California.

With bombast, protests for and against, and a media frenzy, a sitting prime minister has gone on trial for the first time in the history of Israel.

They aim to bring down a strong prime minister from the right and to keep the right away from power for many years.”

The trial started Sunday with a circus-like atmosphere both outside the courtroom and within. Months leading up to the moment, Netanyahu tried every angle he could to delay the trial or pass legislation that a sitting prime minister has immunity against charges, while his opponents tried to pass a law that someone who has been indicted cannot be prime minister.

A Holocaust survivor in Italy “offended” a local politician in Trieste when she made the factual observation that Jesus was Jewish. 

“I would gladly have this nice little grandma over for tea, I have great respect for her,” said Fabio Tuiach, the uninformed member of Trieste’s municipal council. “But as someone who is deeply Catholic, I was confused and offended because she said Jesus was a Jew — while for me he was the Son of God.”
