The tweet’s been deleted, but here’s a screenshot:

Palestinians apparently went on a 24-hour strike Tuesday, and the New Yorker Union tweeted its solidarity. But it didn’t stop there; it tweeted its solidarity “from the river to the sea.”
Solidarity with Palestinians from the river to the sea who went on a 24-hour strike yesterday for dignity and liberation. #palestineonstrike

Curious if the union knows what is meant by “from the river to the sea.” => https://t.co/uyiBtOdfkv

The New Yorker Union endorsing genocide against Jews. Reported.

Calling for the destruction of Israel… at least you’re honest about what you really want.

Thanks for destroying another legacy publication, woke Millenial radicals.

This wording is not an accident.

You do understand what 'from the river to the sea' represents, right?

"From the river to the sea"… yet you guys constantly gripe about nationalism.

New Yorker Union casually calling for destruction of Israel

Looks like you may have accidentally called for a genocide. Care to correct that, or do you actually hate Jews? You should clarify

Do you guys even know what the trope, “from the river to the sea” even means. You probably don’t and should look it up.
— Robert Gourley (@rlgourley) May 19, 2021
So you've endorsed wiping Israel off the map?

Anti-semites and terrorist sympathizers

Just checking: you do know what from the river to the sea implies, don't you? And so, am I to assume that you support the annihilation of the #Israel

I did not have “union supports genocide” on my 2021 bingo card.

To be clear, is ethnic cleansing of Israel the editorial position of the New Yorker or just the position that most employees hold?

Did anyone notice?

Not quite sure why it still exists, but I’ll be canceling my subscription.

Hey, if y'all could not publicly call for the genocide of my people, I'd really appreciate it.
— Fistfull of Ferrets (@ChestHairington) May 19, 2021
Your Jewish subscribers just heard you loud clear.
— Lili von Shtupp (@LvS_Redux) May 19, 2021
This is a hateful, antisemetic slogan, used by Hamas and Islamic Jihad to justify the murder and genocide of the Jews in their historic homeland. Remove this hateful crap immediately.

Wow. Absolutely not hiding it anymore.

Do you even know what that means?

You should have punched someone and then hid behind a child. Now THAT'S solidarity with Palestine!!!
— Dennis (@dgsalem09) May 19, 2021
Did some intern post this or are they going to claim they really don’t know what this trope implies?
Wow: This video of Marc Lamont Hill calling for ‘a free Palestine from the river to the sea’ does not look good https://t.co/1llDNZE2Ns
