The convergence of interests between the “Free Palestine” movement and support for Iran after the killing of arch terrorist Qassem Soleimani should be shocking for those that assumed the “Free Palestine” movement was a movement for truth. Those of us that know otherwise are not shocked at all.

Ultimately, Soleimani worked his whole life in trying to destroy the world’s only Jewish state. In parallel the “Free Palestine” movement is not about freeing “Palestine” but rather is code for destroying the Only Jewish state.
These two protest movements revel in a sick hypocrisy that negates the truth and replaces it with faux victimhood. Unfortunately, good people that do not have the knowledge and facts at their finger tips are picking the side of fascism and injustice.
More than that, these protestors, by linking the killing of Soleimani with Israel’s “occupation” of Judea and Samaria are somehow finding a way to forge an incorrect association with President Trump’s actions with the defense needs of Israel. After all, the pervailing assumption in many quarters is that the US presence and actions are determined by the security needs of Israel.
Of course this is false. Soleimani was responsible countless US military deaths in Iraq – a war that had little connection to Israel.
Ultimately, the protestors are blaming Israel for the ills of the world and have rewritten history to suit their agenda. Good becomes bad and bad becomes good.
Democrats Leading the Way
While these sorts of protests have been common in the past on the fringe of the political spectrum, they have been increasingly mainstreamed the more the Democratic leadership attacks President Trump’s Iran policy and mainstreams far left anti-semitic politicians like Tlaib, Omar, and AOC.
The Democratic party may not be able to change, but those who remain silent bare the burden of the emergence of false narratives finding their home within US national political movements.
