On Apr. 5, I accompanied our neighbor, Afifah, whose real name will not be revealed due to safety concerns, as she tried to talk to the settlers who were protesting outside a house in a Palestinian neighborhood from which the Israeli authorities had evicted the settlers.
A settler refused to speak to her when she requested a conversation. Upon enquiring why, he told her that he did not speak to anti-Semites. Afifah told him that they were both from the same origins. The settler abruptly pronounced that he was referring to me and that Christian Peacemaker Teams (CPT) was an anti-Semitic organization. Afifah told him that she had known CPT for many years and did not think that its members were anti-Semitic. He replied that he had read the CPT website, that everything they posted was anti-Semitic and that they were Jew-hating Christians.
