In a unique, path-blazing partnership, Hip-hop artists Westside Gravy (Noah Shufutinsky) and July 56 (Tanaka Jura) recently collaborated on a new song about shared roots & values and combating prejudice. Noah identifies as a Black Russian Jew, and lives in Israel. Tanaka is South African born with Zimbabwean heritage. Their song, entitled Never Shaken, is a powerful as well as inspiring voice against antisemitism, xenophobia and racism. Please enjoy.
Hamas is an antisemitic organisation that is dedicated to the destruction of Jews: Rape is not Resistance.
Rape is not Resistance. Nor is taking hostages an act of social justice. Hamas is not a freedom fighting organisation. Rather, it is one dedicated to the violent destruction of Israel and which portrays Jews as being an intrinsically evil people who must be hunted down and killed wherever they might be. It says so in its Charter, and its heinous attack on Israeli civilians on 7 October bears this out.
Naked Jew-hatred behind Kasrils’ feting of Hamas atrocities
“A brilliant, spectacular guerilla warfare attack”. Thus has Ronnie Kasrils described the systematic butchery of over 1200 Jewish civilians carried out by Hamas on 7 October (https://x.com/naeemjeenah/status/1728700438755639668?s=58&t=yfTSJWbHskZls3BB0cifPA). Speaking at a BDS SA event over the weekend, Kasrils made no attempt to conceal his glee over the massacre, the worst mass slaughter of Jewish men, women and children since the Holocaust nearly 80 years ago.
