The PA has allowed itself to become a tool for delegitimizing armed Palestinian resistance, surpassing the bounds of security coordination with Israel. It is now a direct collaborator amid the ongoing Israeli genocide in Gaza.

This is another step in Israel's ethnic cleansing and Genocide of palestinians in Gaza
"The Jews" are not carrying out the genocide in Gaza. Israel, a settler colonial state backed by other, bigger, wealthier settler colonial empires, is.
This is what we mean when we say that Israel is actively encouraging and promoting antisemitism. They're explicitly telling the world that to be Jewish is to be a genocidal maniac who celebrates the torture, slaughter, and starvation of an entire civilian population (and ironically branding any Jewish person who says otherwise as a self-hating antisemite). They're sending a clear message to millions of people (billions, actually) who may not know any better that if you think genocide is wrong, then you are an enemy of all Jewish people. There is a real danger that some may believe them.

Hey man, Biden’s doing the best he can to try and stop Israel’s genocide in Palestine. Heck he’s sent aid to the Israelis, he’s sent weapons to the Israelis, he’s even said with his whole chest “I don't believe you have to be a Jew to be a Zionist, and I am a Zionist.”
What else can one man do?
