American feminist writer claims that rape is “related to” Zionism

Mahroh Jahangiri, an American feminist writer and activist, has claimed some sort of causal link between “Zionism” and rape.

Sharing a screenshot of an article about sexual violence, Jahangiri tweeted “if we can admit rape is related to racism/militarism/zionism/our role in white supremacy writ large, we’ll be better equipped to address it”.

Zionism is merely a movement for Jewish self-determination. There is absolutely no plausible connection between Zionism and sexual violence, beyond the unfortunate fact that sexual violence is common everywhere in the world.

Furthermore, in listing Zionism alongside “racism” and “white supremacy”, Jahangiri portrays Zionism as an “inherently racist endeavour”, which is antisemitic according to the International Definition of Antisemitism.
