(Newest additions at the bottom of the post but are not necessarily chronological)
If you don’t know the reality of what is going on in Israel and Palestine or you believe you are informed by mainstream US media you may be surprised to know the issue is not nearly as complicated as some would want you to believe, and you may be surprised that reality is more than a little different than you may have thought.
Here are some links to info and a map. This may be added to in the future but as of now sum it up pretty clearly. I would encourage you to watch all 3 parts of the interview with Roger Waters (and others) below and keep an open mind. More below is there for ways you can speak up and inform others.

Here’s another article, it’s from a couple years ago, it happens to also have Waters in it but touches on some important points.
The next link is a video. In the video … “In depth analysis! Rabbi Yaakov Shapiro reacts to #Jerusalem being declared the capital of Israel, and explains that the Jewish people relate to Jerusalem as a holy city, not as a political capital city. Jerusalem as the capital of the “Jews” is a #Zionist fiction, and conflicts directly with the teachings of #Judaism.
To all those countries considering moving their embassies, please know that this would only benefit Israel and the Zionists, and has no benefit to the Jewish people at large. Israel does NOT represent world Jewry”

Youtube Censors Abby Martin & Max Blumenthal’s Report In 28 Countries On Israel’s ILLEGAL VIOLENCE
Below is an article and the video he mentions in the above video.
If you go there and try to view it and it is blocked because of your location, you may try using a proxy or a VPN (Virtual Private Network) that has proxies around the world and go through a proxy that is in the USA or somewhere the video can be viewed. I do not know if that will help.
Here is a list of proxies, https://www.techgyd.com/free-proxy-sites-list-2014/12890/ I am just sharing this, I don’t know anything about the site and you can use it or not.
I do not know if the video is hosted anywhere but on YouTube, hopefully it is but the article has the link to it on YouTube.
Here is the video and related article.
NOTE, the article is new and we must know if it and everything in it, but the video itself was from 2015 so do not confuse what is in the video with anything that has or is going on when I am posting this (April 2018) .

Israel Shoots 6 Journalists Covering Palestinian Protest
The Israeli Massacre You Won’t Get On Mainstream Media
The video below point out what should be obvious… if we apply the justification and allowance of the attacks upon Syria, then it allows more of the same elsewhere.
Below is a great video where Rodger Waters covers not only what BDS is and why he supports it but also talks of the issue of propaganda and our shared responsibility to one another. This should be seen by all.
As Israeli forces kill unarmed demonstrators for a third week in Gaza and while the US simultaneously prepares to strike Syria over human rights abuses, Laura spoke to Lana Abu Hijileh, a Palestinian humanitarian and development professional attending the SKOLL World Forum conference in Oxford, UK, April 13, 2018

Israeli fire in new Gaza border protest kills 4 Palestinians
GAZA CITY, Gaza Strip (AP) — Israeli soldiers firing Friday from across a border fence killed four Palestinians, including a 15-year-old boy, and wounded more than 150 others, health officials said, as several thousand people in blockaded Gaza staged a fourth round of weekly protests on the border with Israel.
This article shows one of the reasons so many Americans don’t know the truth…
Facebook Is Collaborating With the Israeli Government to Determine What Should Be Censored
As is pointed out in some of what is above, criticism of what Israel is doing is criticism of the government’s actions and the actions of their police, military and courts and SOME of the citizens (Note it is only Some, NOT ALL).
On the website of the documentary above they make it clear it is criticism of what the Israeli government does and has nothing to do with Judaism.
What Israel is doing to Palestinians has nothing to do with Judaism. Not one bit except that Israel uses it as a shield to cover their crimes against humanity.
They are the ones being disrespectful to the Jewish religion. They are being disrespectful to all those that have suffered and everyone should call them out on it.
This isn’t about Judaism, it’s not anti-Semitic. It is truth telling and pointing out their misuse of the religion.
