While the Collegium made public its reasons for backing a gay advocate’s candidature for the first time, no reasons were given for its approval of an advocate with obvious bias against India’s minorities.

I'm quite happy to accept that your assertions were your personal opinion, & not based on empirical, independently verified, peer reviewed data, claiming the #Muslims in the nations you quoted, are all fine with the situation in #Palestine.
If this is fact, can you supply me with the empirical, independently verified, peer reviewed data on these #Islamic people's OK opinions on the happenings in #Gaza the #WestBank & of #Palestinian people in general?
If you can't, I'll accept it's just your personal opinion, & not based in actual fact.

Geert Wilders, the Dutch far-right leader, initiated the official procedure to form a government coalition. His significant triumph in the election has caused political upheaval in the Netherlands. Wilders faces the challenge of persuading hesitant opposition parties to join his administration as prime minister. Wilders has proposed measures that directly affect Muslim communities, including calls to prohibit the Quran, shut down mosques, and halt immigration from Muslim-majority countries. If enacted, these policies would significantly affect Muslims living in the Netherlands.

As India’s religious polarisation intensifies, I miss the Bohra Diwali celebrations of my childhood
A silver coin would be bought on Dhanteras. New account books would be opened. The entire clan would gather to celebrate the festival. Farida Pacha writes. (Article from November 2021)
November 11 2023, 6:00 a.m.
“On October 27, several thousand Jews and their allies shut down the main terminal of Grand Central Station during rush hour in New York City, demanding a ceasefire in Gaza. Organized by Jewish Voice for Peace, the activists at the peaceful sit-in wore black T-shirts that read 'Not In Our Name.' 'It’s the largest sit-in protest the city has seen in over two decades,' Democracy Now!’s Amy Goodman said. About 400 people were arrested, including rabbis.
“The Anti-Defamation League has classified the event — and dozens of other protests led by Jewish groups like Jewish Voice for Peace and IfNotNow — as 'anti-Israel,' according to an analysis by The Intercept, and added them to their database documenting rising antisemitism across the U.S.
“’We’re seeing a genuine rise in antisemitic attacks and white nationalist, white supremacist, antisemitic hate and violence,' Eva Borgwardt, the national spokesperson for IfNotNow, told me. 'When white nationalism is on the rise, to cheapen the accusation of antisemitism by applying it to Palestinian rights advocates, including Jews, is incredibly irresponsible and dangerous.'
“Since Hamas’s brutal October 7 attack on southern Israel where Palestinian militants killed over 1,400 Israelis — most of them civilians — and took over 200 hostages, the Anti-Defamation League, a Jewish advocacy group that tracks antisemitism and extremism, has been keeping track of the alarming rise of antisemitic incidents.
“In 2020, over 100 #progressive organizations — including the #MovementForBlackLives, #DemocraticSocialists of America, and Center for Constitutional Rights — signed an open letter asking the progressive community to not partner with ADL because the group 'has a history and ongoing pattern of attacking #SocialJustice movements led by communities of color, #queer people, #immigrants, #Muslims, #Arabs, and other marginalized groups, while aligning itself with #police, right-wing leaders, and perpetrators of state violence.' Now, ADL is targeting a new group of people: #ProgressiveJews.
“Israel’s indiscriminate massacre of civilians in Gaza — killing over 10,000 Palestinians so far in the densely populated Gaza Strip, including over 4,000 children — has led to the largest anti-war protests in the U.S. since the Iraq War, including a surge of renewed activism from progressive Jewish groups. Israel has bombed Gaza nonstop since the October 7 attack, ordered the relocation of over 1 million civilians, launched a ground invasion, and is blocking food, water, medical supplies, and fuel from making it into Gaza, triggering a #HumanitarianCrisis and leading to what legal scholars call a #genocide against #Palestinians.
"While the ADL told The Intercept that it does not consider the ceasefire protests 'antisemitic,' just 'anti-Israel,' its CEO, Jonathan Greenblatt, has said otherwise. After several thousand Jews and their allies marched on the U.S. Capitol on October 18 calling for a ceasefire, ADL DC released a statement equating #antiZionism with antisemitism. Greenblatt piled on, calling the groups that organized the protest, including Jewish Voice for Peace, 'hate groups.'"

""Both Islamophobia and anti-Arab racism are out of control in ways we have not seen in almost 10 years," said Corey Saylor of CAIR, the nation's largest Muslim civil rights organization.

Why do I believe #Biden will lose in 2024?
1. Most people voted for him because they hated Trump.
2. The lack of voter enthusiasm sealed Hillary's fate in 2016. Trump has many die-hard fans; Biden doesn't.
3. His blind support of Israel will not give him more votes from conservative Jews and will give him fewer from Liberal #Jews. He will lose many votes from #Muslims.
4. Most Gen Y and Z believe he is too old.

Are Muslims Second-Class Citizens in the West?
Two decades after 9/11, #Muslims once again feel like second-class citizens in the West. When they look at the plight of civilians in #Palestine, they cannot help but feel that a Palestinian life is not equal to an #Israeli life.

“Detectives were able to determine that both victims in this brutal attack were targeted by the suspect due to them being #Muslims & the on-going #MiddleEastern conflict involving #Hamas & #Israel,” the statement said.
"It is this context—the already-political grief at the core of the #Zionist adventure—that makes so many on the left so reticent to perform a public shedding of tears over Hamas’s victims. They are, we might darkly say, “pre-grieved”: that is, an apparatus is already in place to take their deaths and give them not just any meaning, but specifically the meaning that they find in the bombs falling on #Gaza. The appetite for the most grotesque images of violence against Israelis is so ravenous—leading to the repetition of dubious claims of mass beheading and rape that have the appearance of blood libels—because the apparatus of state grief runs so hot. It demands raw material. Its power, in turn, is such that the most ringing dissents calling instead for peace and humane mourning for all—like Eric Levitz’s and Joshua Leifer’s—nevertheless resonate only as whimpers of sentiment. Whatever the noble and admirable content of such humane efforts, their form is already molded. They are participating, presumably without intent, in a new Red Scare being prepared not against stray callous advocates of Hamas, but against all who defend the right of Palestinians to live, and to live as equals.
There is an unmistakable effort to push the pro #Palestinian left, including the #Jewish pro-Palestinian left, beyond the pale by weaponizing grief, yielding such darkly comical scenes as #German politicians refusing to speak to Bernie Sanders, whose family died in the Shoah, to mark sufficient deference to Jewish death. Such is the power of the Israeli grief machine: it authorizes Germans to tell Jews that they are mourning wrong. I joked, on the news about Sanders, that I could imagine a German stuffing me into a cattle car, weeping about the special German responsibility to ensure that the #Holocaust never reoccur. Across Europe, governments are attempting to crack down on any demonstrations against the occupation, while U.S. politicians libel #Muslims en masse and call to #censor of any vocal ally of Palestine. The significance of this fact is that, in the several days that we spent arguing about whether the left was sufficiently decent about #Hamas’s victims, Israel geared up its genocide machine—which it now is releasing."
I stand against terrorism and Hamas’s tactics…while acknowledging that they don’t act in a vacuum.

@esther I was taught the very ugly lesson that ethnicity seems to trump everything else when it comes to ethnic and religious discrimination.

I also blocked anyone who shows even the slightest bit of #AntiBlackRacism. If they’re anti-Black, they’re also most likely anti-Muslim.
“There was a national *solidarity* that existed after #911… But the political leadership of the United States ensured that, instead of solidarity, there would be bloodlust.

Right-wing groups in India are policing social media and reporting minorities for allegedly offending their religion.
@Rachel_Thorn The same applies to Muslims. Some of us are white, but we get trampled on by our fellow white people. #Islamophobia is a huge problem all across the #fediverse, and while I and a few other #Muslims here may be “white,” we still need white non-Muslims to speak up for us and report the bigotry they see being directed at us.

Recent mosque attacks raise questions about the affinity between white supremacy and far-right Hindu nationalism
This shared intense hatred of “monstrous” Muslim men brings Hindu and white extremists into a “transnational affective alignment.” That is, the mutual hate of Muslims and a mutual love for Hindu and white national ideals.
The Nikkei piece says, “the Western nations have mistakenly judged #India to be as democratic as they are”. This despite the #Modi government taking “a series of steps to suppress religious minorities in the country…(and) #Muslims in India face much the same predicament as Islamic people in #China’s Xinjiang Uyghur Autonomous Region”. To my mind, it is significant that a writer in Japan rather than in the US or Europe should make this point. https://www.rashmee.com/2023/04/22/expert-opinion-from-japan-on-the-indian-century/
