Beautiful World, Where Are You: This Is Not A Conflict. This Is Apartheid

Citing human rights reports that Israel's "racial domination and segregation against Palestinians meets the definition of apartheid under international law," big-deal Irish author Sally Rooney says she won't sell translation rights for her hot new book to an Israeli publisher to honor the BDS boycott call. Cue a savage Jewish smear campaign: It's just like pogroms, morally questionable, an affront to reading and culture, what about Russia/China, "She's an anti-Semite. Fuck her." Others urged standing up to the cynical hysteria. "Be brave, come forward. No one is free until we are all free."
