LIVSHITS | The Israel-Hamas Battle is a Feminist Subject

This previous Worldwide Girls’s Day, it appeared we had forgotten Audre Lorde’s burning flame: “The grasp’s instruments won’t ever dismantle the grasp’s home.” In a primary portrayal of our failed intersectional feminist activism, regardless of Kimberlé Crenshaw’s ’81 definition of it and her lecture on campus earlier this semester, Cornellians had been polarized by the Israel-Hamas Battle and denied the dignity of reproductive freedom and livelihood to all ladies. 

My Instagram feed — which is probably going solely a crude reflection of Cornell’s political local weather — was stuffed with the Coalition for Mutual Liberation’s condemnation of Cornellians for Israel’s plans for rape theatre that includes volunteers imitating Hamas’ sexual violence in opposition to Israeli ladies within the Oct. 7 assault on Israel. CFI later rejected ties to a proposed Hamas sexual violence demonstration, regardless of a earlier name for volunteers of their WhatsApp group, writing that they “have been exploring methods to honor and bear witness to the struggling of victims and survivors,” on their Instagram. Whether or not or not CFI was ever critical about holding the “rape theater” occasion, pro-Israel teams on and off campus have persistently demonstrated no ethical qualms about morally reprehensible types of activism and protest starting from doxxing to hyperbolic proselytizing.

Whereas I wholeheartedly condemn the (denied) proposal to CFI’s govt board of rape as a spectacle and the group in and of itself, I additional perceive that there must be extra assist for the Israeli victims and survivors of rape. Acknowledging this in-between is tough. An much more difficult distinction to keep up is that I worth CFI’s tastefully restrained show of Israeli rape victims final week, however totally oppose the membership and its pro-Israel agenda. But, I’m dedicated to being a critic of Israel’s authorities and a voice in opposition to the genocide it’s committing in Gaza whereas recognizing that the competition round Hamas’ use of sexual violence — explicitly the rape of Israeli ladies — is sickening. Opposing sexual violence in opposition to Israeli ladies will not be the identical as supporting a Zionist group.
