Embarrassing ‘call for action’ by Prominent “Anti-Zionist”Below you will find an embarrassing ‘call for action’ circulated (selectively) by Naomi Wimborne-Idrissi, a prominent UK Jewish ‘anti Zionist’ and one of the founders of ‘J- Big’, an exclusive Jewish cell, advocating the boycott of Israeli goods.Shamelessly, Wimborne-Idrissi writes, “those who equate Zionism with Jewishness do not belong in the movement.” Once again a Jewish ethnic activist seems to suggest to us what the Palestinian solidarity movement is all about. Sadly enough, Wimborne-Idrissi refuses to admit the obvious –
that Israel defines itself as the Jewish State. Israel also drops bombs on Gazans from planes decorated with Jewish symbols. Surely then, Wimborne-Idrissi had better explain to us, once and for all; why can’t we then question what Jewishness stands for?But I guess that I know the answer: Wimborne-Idrissi, understands that any criticism of Jewishness will also apply to her own ‘Jews Only’ political cell, for — categorically and by definition — both Israel and Wimborne-Idrissi’s ‘J-Big’ are exclusive Jewish clubs.
They are both driven by the idea that being Jewish is somehow unique: otherwise, I cannot understand why Wimborne-Idrissi refuses to boycott Humus Sabra together with the Goyim.It is important to mention that neither I nor anyone else in our movement has ever condemned ‘Jews within the movement and those who work with them’.No one is criticising Jews as people. And no one – except the Jews only cells — believes in trying to silence anyone. I believe in freedom of speech. I believe that vibrant discourse is crucial for any political or ideological movement. And I would support Wimborne- Idrissi — once she decides to engage in an open debate instead of conspiratorial clandestine strategies.
