Francesca Albanese, the UN’s Special Rapporteur on the Palestinian territories, was banned from Israel on Monday for saying that the Hamas attack had nothing to do with anti-Semitism, and was a “response to Israel’s oppression.”

Yet disgracefully, she was still scheduled to be a featured speaker for Harvard’s Carr Center for Human Rights Policy. “Join us for a virtual conversation with UN Special Rapporteur, Francesca Albanese, as she discusses her perspective on the current situation in the Gaza area as well as her experiences working on the protection of Palestinian refugees and migrants,” the event’s website states.

Albanese on Saturday pushed back against French President Emmanuel Macron for calling the Hamas attack an “anti-Semitic massacre.”

“The ‘greatest anti-Semitic massacre of our century’? No, Mr. @EmmanuelMacron,” Albanese tweeted in response to France’s president honoring the victims. “The victims of 10/7 were not killed because of their Judaism, but in response to Israel’s oppression.”

Israeli officials said Albanese should be fired permanently by the UN.

“The era of Jews being silent is over,” Foreign Minister Yisrael Katz and Interior Minister Moshe Arbel said in a statement. “If the UN wants to return to being a relevant body, its leaders must publicly disavow the anti-Semitic words of the ‘Special Envoy’ – and fire her permanently. Preventing her from entering Israel might remind her of the real reason why Hamas slaughtered babies, women and adults.”

I’ve watched a couple of interviews with her, she has an unfavorable view of Israel, but I wouldn’t label her antisemitic or hate spewing. Imo, it would actually make Israel safer and better if they do take into account some of her arguments.

It’s very tempting to label adversaries as evil, but sometime people, even so wrongly, have different opinions, and you could potentially gain some unpleasant insights.

Stop crying foul and whining like a cry baby. Every one is entitled to believe what they want and to invite who ever they want.
