UC Berkeley 'Islamophobia Studies' Protege Laments Israeli 'Vegan-Washing'
Shawndeez Davari Jadali
It was just a matter of time before "vegan-washing" was unveiled as the latest diabolical tool in Israel's arsenal for luring unsuspecting progressives to its defense. Shawndeez Davari Jadali, a research assistant for UC Berkeley's Islamophobia Studies Journal and a protege of Hatem Bazian, Islamophobia Research & Documentation Project director, authored an inadvertently hilarious column
on the subject at Turkey Agenda
. According to Pro-Israel Bay Bloggers
Shawndeez, [a] graduate of UC Berkeley's peace and conflict program, takes issue with Israel's growing vegan movement, accusing the country of "enticing vegans from all over the world with a myriad of vegan eateries," motivated by a desire "to conceal the violence embedded in the occupation of Palestine." Alas, for the poor helpless Palestinians, this tofu-driven Zionist conspiracy is succeeding, as characterized by the "booming vegan tourism and international praise for the Israeli vegan movement."
