    I suppose the truth is in order

    A friend recently told me, “people should tell the person they like they like them!” She told me in a very adamant tone, frustrated that she never knew my feelings for her but I’ve come to the realization that everyone I’ve ever loved has hated me for it. It’s an inconvenience to them.

    They’ve all known, even said friend had known though she seems to have chosen to forget it ever happened. I held that little of a significance to the girl I was infatuated with through my early adolescence and puberty. She plagued my mind for 5 years. I asked her out on the third year, she knew about my feelings for her during the second and was reminded of them in the fifth. Yet even then, four years later, she remembers none of it. I fought a long while to get over her. I did a lot of drugs to forget her. I drank a lot and smoked a lot to find new ways to enjoy life. I lived many new experiences to distract myself. And she didn’t even remember that she was the center of my universe at a time, but I suppose the sun doesn’t bother with the earth’s presence either.

    Subsequently after that any person I’ve revealed my feelings for has turned me down. I’ve learned to move on quickly, I’ve learned how to not care. But it’s only recently that I gained this skill. A required apathy for my survival.

    On that note, how can you expect me to be a regular old person with well stabilized emotional integrity? What is the result of such experiences? Well it’s impatience, and distrust, and defensive behavior.

    But it happens again, periodically, I become fixated on a person, more in love with the idea of love and the prospect that my childhood notions were not a fallacy. Except it hasn’t happened for a long while now. But something else has.

    I’ve found someone I don’t have to romanticize to be excited about. But her and I cannot be.

    I like being alone. But I’m also tired of it. So I’ll cast myself into a superficial relationship with someone else to rationalize keeping myself distant, knowing that She is out there, unobtainable as ever, but hopefully happy with her situation.

    Because that is what I do, I move on with distractions and new experiences, I cover pain by redirecting my attention. And it works damn well. And there’s so much more I want to say that I can’t say because I’m afraid. And I should end this now because I should sleep and I feel myself growing angry with the casual and more enthralled with the dramatic and that is when the dreams should take you.

The crisis in Gaza is leading to anti-Semitic attacks on Jews worldwide

Molotov cocktails and mobs at synagogues. Assaults on city streets. Leaflets left on car windshields promising violence. Public hate speech and calls for eradication. Governments holding houses of worship hostage.
It’s not paranoia or exaggeration: Jews around the world are facing attacks as the crisis escalates in Gaza, where rocket fires, bombings, an Israeli ground invasion and hundreds of civilians deaths are daily realities. But the 17-year-old teenager who was assaulted and pepper-sprayed in Paris had nothing to do with that. She’s not an isolated case. This is what happens when some view diaspora Jews as an acceptable proxy for the Israeli state. 
No matter what your position is on the conflict, nothing justifies targeting people uninvolved in the fighting. To vent frustration about Israel on Jews, no matter where they live, conflates the two in dangerous ways.
To criticize Israel is one thing, and plenty of Jews there and abroad do that themselves; it’s another thing entirely to do so using anti-Semitic language and imagery, when that kind of speech has led to such terrible tragedies in the past. To no one’s credit, times of heightened tensions in the Middle East usually mean a huge uptick in expressions of anti-Semitism, written, verbal and physical.
From France to Turkey to the U.S. 


This is one of the most thorough breakdowns of recent antisemitism I’ve seen. Must read.

I really, really, really wanted this to be a decent article on the breakdown of antisemitism that did not resort to using examples of falling back on accusing people of antisemitism when it was actually the opposite scenario, such as in France. The rest of them may still very well be accurate, I haven’t checked, and I won’t lie, antisemitism is a real problem, but that’s not all that’s going on. Actually several I know are, like neo-nazis at rallies, and I know several organizers of such rallies doing their very best to make sure they’re kicked out.
There are very real parts where Zionists purposefully incite violence by attacking pro-Palestine protesters or advocates to then accuse them of “antisemitism” by telling only half the story. It is historically factual that Zionists have accused indigenous Palestinians of being “antisemitic” for resisting occupation on their land, despite the fact that some of those indigenous Palestinians are actually Jewish to begin with. (Others were settlers that established themselves before Israel was officially “created”, but that’s another story). Or that recently human rights organizations have been called “antisemitic” without evidence simply because they report facts and figures of ISRAELI crimes against humanity. Netanyahu said it was antisemetic to say Israel was committing his war crimes, literally. Israel does not get to represent Jews; calling out Israel is not antisemitic.
As for France: the video in the article, once broken down (and as witnesses have reported) is actually of Zionist pro-Israeli attackers collaborating with the police to violently attack what was a peaceful pro-Palestine protest. As for the synagogues, “violently attacked”? Didn’t happen. People inside have stated that they fighting outside stayed outside, and the people inside were completely safe, at no moment were projectiles thrown. Unlike what the article above said. As people have checked and reported.
Is anti-semitism a real problem? Yes, it is. And as a problem, it needs to be addressed for what it is, not abused for false information or defame those bringing up other real problems like the Israeli genocide of Palestinians as well.

#are we forgetting how anti semetic france is and blaming it on the moozlums
