Munayyer: Support for Palestinians becomes Orwellian Litmus Test

From time to time, the Palestine Center distributes articles it believes will enhance understanding of the Palestinian political reality. The following article by Yousef Munayyer was published by Palestine Square on October 23, 2017.

“Now Americans too, even in Dickinson, will be discriminated against for their political views. No one should be denied rights for a political viewpoint, but the fact that supporting Palestinian rights disqualifies applicants from aid is not just Orwellian but suggests a deep animus toward the very humanity of Palestinians. To think that a person who wants to help residents suffering from flooding would be denied a contract just because they also want to help Palestinians suffering from Israeli oppression is not just unbecoming of Texas. It is unconstitutional and un-American.”
