  1. When Zionism means that the vast majority of indigenous Palestinian men women and children are pushed into forced exile and denied their inalienable, natural, and legal right to their homes and lands... and when Zionism means that countless Palestinians lose their livelihoods- their jobs... when Zionism means that routinely Palestinian homes are destroyed and Palestinian trees are uprooted... and when Zionism means that Palestinians are imprisoned and tormented in many different ways... when Zionism means Palestinians will continue to be oppressed and displaced... when Zionism means that Palestinians are harassed no matter where they go or what they say- or what they tweet... when Zionism means that Palestinians will be demonized, disenfranchised, discredited and impoverished for telling the truth it certainly should not be a surprise that Palestinians object to Zionism.
