Progressive Zionist Group Slams Women’s March for Appointing Anti-Israel Activist to New Board

September 17, 2019

“Billoo’s numerous and unqualified attacks on Zionists leave no room in this coalition for American Jews, 95% of whom support Israel’s right to exist and consider Zionism an inherent part of our identities, alongside our commitment to progressive politics,” it continued.

“No amount of Jewish appointees to the new board can justify the appointment of an individual like Billoo,” Zioness asserted, “who has a well-established track record of anti-Jewish racism.”

“Anyone who cares about anti-oppression work will recognize immediately that Billoo’s many rabidly antisemitic comments contribute to a culture in this country and around the world in which Jews are being harassed, assaulted in the street, and gunned down in our houses of worship,” the group stated.

Trump Says Jews Who Vote Democrat Show ‘Either a Total Lack of Knowledge or Great Disloyalty’

August 21, 2019

Jewish Zionist and Progressive group Zioness also went to Facebook to share that “We don’t have loyalty oaths in democracies. People who “love the Jews” don’t accuse us of dual loyalty. People who “love the Jews” don’t categorize us as ‘good Jews’ or ‘bad Jews.’ People who ‘love the Jews’ don’t call us stupid. Anti-Semites do these things. Once again, Donald Trump wantonly attempts to weaponize our identities—American, progressive, Jewish and Zionist.”
