Far Right Exploiting Gaza War to Spread Antisemitism and Islamophobia / Shane Burley

These White Supremacists support [Palestinians] in as much as they feel like they could have solidarity with folks against Jews. That's really the basis of it. If you check their threads and publications long enough, they will admit that no, they don't particularly care about Palestinians. They're not going to support Palestinian refugees being resettled in the U. S., or what they see as white dominant countries. They don't want to give aid to Palestinians. They're not going to support any of the actual humanitarian efforts to support Palestinians who are being ethnically cleansed in Gaza. Instead, they simply see an opportunity say, “Hey, look what's happened to Palestinians. This is another example of the pernicious level of Jewish influence in the world.”

Shane Burley on his writing at Waging Nonviolence, "How the far right is trying to manipulate the crisis in Gaza." Plus,  some Rotten History.
