There is a new way to smear Zionism – opinion – The Jerusalem Post

| May 8, 2021

Jewish academic critics of Israel have come up with a new smear tactic: falsely portraying Jewish nationalism as being intimately tied to the evils of 19th-century white-settler colonialism.That was the theme of a May 4 online program called Baja California Dreaming: How US Settler Colonialism Shapes Jewish Nationalism, hosted by the University of California at Davis. The featured speaker was Maxwell Greenberg, a doctoral candidate at UCLA, and the respondent was Sarah Imhoff, a professor at UC-Davis.Greenbergs remarks focused on a handful of American Jewish philanthropists in San Francisco who in the 1890s were looking for a way to save Russias Jews from the pogroms: the systemic, violent anti-Jewish riots of the time.

Why the events in Jaffa of May 1, 1921 are important today – Al Jazeera English

| May 8, 2021

Officially, the war for Palestine, which ended with the establishment of the state of Israel and the exile of three-quarters of a million Palestinians, began on May 15, 1948, with the termination of the British Mandate, the declaration of Independence by Zionist leaders, and the formal start of hostilities between the fledgeling Jewish state and the countrys Palestinian population and Arab allies. Others point to the United Nations Partition Resolution passed on November 29, 1947, and the war that commenced soon thereafter, as the actual beginning of the conflict. But an equally plausible argument can be made that the War for Palestine began more than a quarter-century earlier, on May Day, 1921 not in Jerusalem but in a mixed neighbourhood along the sea between Jaffa and Tel Aviv
