A group of Jewish workers working for the tech giant Google urged their leaders to support Palestinians in Gaza who were brutally bombed by Israel, the Times of Israel reported.
In a letter now browsing the company, Google employees urged CEO Sundar Pichai to announce that he condemned all kinds of Israeli atrocities against Palestinians, including acknowledging all oppression and violence perpetrated by the Israeli army against Palestinians. .
In addition, Google employees also called on their CEOs to pay full attention to the demands and voices of Palestinian Google employees, including ending all contact with companies that support brutal human rights violations. by Israel in Palestine.
The letter containing 250 signatures was initially reported by The Verge. Contains signatures in support of Palestinians from Jewish workers and other Google worker coalitions. This request was made by the Jewish Diaspora to the Employee Resource Group (ERG).
For the record, the Jewish Diaspora is a new group formed last year in response to a group of Google Jewglres employees accused of being strong supporters of the Israeli Zionist regime.
They formed the Jewish Diaspora group because they did not want to be equated with groups that support atrocities that violate human rights. “We had to form our own group due to the fact that we weren’t really allowed to express our views at ERG,” a product marketing manager for the group told The Verge.
Additionally, the group also urged Google to support and protect the right to free speech by emphasizing that criticism of Israel should not be seen as anti-Semitic.
“We call on Google leaders to reject the definition of anti-Semitism which states that criticism of Israel or Zionism is anti-Semitic.
“Anti-Zionism is not anti-Semitism and this conflict is detrimental to efforts to obtain justice for Palestinians and Jews by limiting freedom of expression and moving away from true anti-Semitism,” the letter said, as reported by Middle East Eye.
