I did a Twitter search of anti-Israel Jewish groups, supposed "experts" on antisemitism like Linda Sarsour and Marc Lamont Hill, on so-called "human rights organizations and on some Leftist politicians to see if any of them condemned - or even mentioned - Hamas rocket attacks on Israel, one of the biggest rocket barrages anywhere in history.

These tweeters haven't said a word:

Jewish Voice for Peace
JVP Action
Independent Jewish Voices 
Bend the Arc
Jews for Racial and Economic Justice
Jewish Currents
Jewdas
Peter Beinart
Rabbi Brant Rosen
Simone Zimmerman
Alice Rothchild
Linda Sarsour
Emily Mayer
Matt Duss
Rashida Tlaib
Marc Pocan
Ilhan Omar
Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez
Democracy Now!
Human Rights Watch
Amnesty International
Oxfam

IfNotNow and Marc Lamont Hill mentioned them once, but only to downplay them.

It isn't like they don't know about the rockets. It isn't like they don't know that rocket fire is a war crime and terrorism. 

The reason they don't mention the rockets is because they are on the side of the terrorists, but they know they cannot win the argument.

When you cannot win an argument, the best tactic is to reframe the argument. That is what Peter Beinart did in his NYT op-ed yesterday - he said the real issue is Israel's existence as a Jewish state, the unsaid implication that talking about Hamas rockets is a distraction from the main point. It was a masterful coup to attempt to reframe an argument right in the middle of the thousands of rockets.

More honest was James Zogby, who did mention the rockets, and why he was against them. Not because they kill and terrorize innocent people, though:


See? The problem with the rockets are they distract attention from the topic he wants to talk about! 

This is exactly the reason the so-called human rights defenders don't want to talk about rockets - because it shows that their worldview is false, that Palestinian rejectionists would all join in to try to destroy Israel if they could, that Israel is defending itself.

Their studious avoidance of mentioning rockets from people who obsessively post about Israel all the time shows that they aren't interested in the truth.

Beyond that, their refusal to say anything against Hamas rockets shows that they are embarrassed by Hamas' attacks. If they opposed Hamas, they would eagerly denounce it; their silence is a strong message that they share Hamas' goals, if not its tactics.  

They will never criticize Hamas because they are allies of Hamas, and one doesn't publicly disagree with their allies.
