This chapter contributes to a feminist analysis of indigenousness and settler colonialism through an application of the method of oral history to Palestinian women’s (and men’s) voices during the Nakba, or the genocide, as the Nakba will be defined here.

A type of historical line connects the courage of Jordan as one of the first Black, queer, American feminists to speak out about genocide against our Palestinian brothers and sisters at the hands of American and Israeli governments with the solidarity workshops I have led to engage Black girls in political solidarity with Palestinian and Syrian people.

Intersectionality is vested in a shared experience of racial subjugations, humiliation, and exploitation. But even if those connections didn’t abundantly exist, it would still not justify the ethnic supremacy, settler colonial genocide and racial segregation that Israel inflicts on Palestinians.
Even if it didn’t exist, it wouldn’t justify wholesale torture of Palestinians in Israeli prisons. And even if black, Latino, Native, and LGBTQ populations didn’t already identify with Palestine, it still wouldn’t justify the bombardment of the starving, impoverished masses of Gaza, resulting in the deaths of thousands of innocents, including my four-year-old cousin Deema Isleem, who was incinerated in her father’s arms, to clear the land for racially exclusive settlement.

Where is the feminist perspective on the genocide in Gaza? As a Jewish feminist, daughter of a Holocaust survivor, and someone who lived in Israel for 27 years, I find the silence of this page disturbing. I attach a short article I wrote two weeks ago, which I sent to the editor of this page in hope that it will be circulated. I haven’t heard back at all but it’s not about me. It’s about the need of feminists to take a stand on this horrific military assault.
